Week 1 tested our slow strength; week 2 tested our fast strength. So far, we’ve got 5 measured events and all 5 involve max effort lifts of barbell movements. All the lifts have been the foundations of the sports of Weight Lifting: Powerlifting and Olympic Weight Lifting.
So what’s our theme? Will every workout be strength and barbell based?
You know me better than that. Today we flip the script. Instead of barbells and max effort strength, we’re testing our capacity through 5 different tests of fitness, though we’re again staying almost entirely anaerobic: your “cardio” abilities aren’t necessarily going to limit your scores again in week 3.
5 tests of fitness this week; each one is worth 25 points for a total of 125 points available to the individual this week.
Workout of the Day:
Summer Series 18.3: 5 tests.
1) Shuttle Sprint.
2) Sled push/pull.
3) Assault Bike Challenge.
4) 20 cals on the Ski-Erg.
5) Max Unbroken Pull-Ups.
