    (Photo: To “subvert” means to undermine. Most of what we think, and think we know, requires routine subversion… Especially in the realms of training and fitness.

    Don’t believe us? Let us prove it. Think fitness is no place for… thinking? Think again. Or, don’t.)


    25 x 1 @ as heavy as possible, varying implement as desired

    Use barbell (as power clean) in a maximum of 10 of 25 reps. Rest as needed between reps, and maintain consistency in set-up, bracing, and order of operations regardless of implement.

    Then, with a partner, accumulate:

    50 Chin-up
    100 Abmat sit-up
    @ 1/2 BW
    100 calories Airdyne (in no less than 10-calorie intervals)
    200 1-arm kettlebell swing @ 35lbs. W, 55lbs. M

    One partner works while the other “rests”, ready to move again. Partition and organize work as desired- choose and assign a path before beginning a path. Goal should be seamless transitions from movement to movement, and partner to partner.

    And then, “Time under tension”:

    5 x 10 Mace/ Kettlebell Good Morning

    Alternate between implements as desired. Keep weight challenging and position strong throughout. No lazy lifts. When scheme is listed as “5 x 10”, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”.
