    “The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.” Friedrich Nietzsche

    Back squat:

    5, 3, 2- 2- 2- 2

    Rest as needed between sets. Begin at moderate weight (50-60% of 1RM) and lift as heavy as is sustainable through the sets of 2. Weight increases each set (denoted by commas between) until 2, and then, position considered, remains the same (denoted by dashes).


    40 yd. sled push @ 115lb. W, 155lb. M
    1 minute rest

    Time each 40 yd. trip and repeat push + rest until time drops 3 seconds or more (Ex. Round 1: :18 sec., Round 2: :19 sec., Round 3: :19 sec., Round 4: :22 sec.– done.)

    And then, at challenging weight, 1 round of:

    Kettlebell Sequence #1

    Around-the-body pass (Left)
    Around-the-body pass (Right)
    Figure 8
    Overhead swing
    Swing clean and press (5L, 5R)
    Full-range high pull
    Halo (5L, 5R)
    Hand-to-hand 1-arm swing
    Snatch (5L, 5R)
    Goblet squat

    Using the same single kettlebell throughout, perform 10 total reps of each movement in order (note L & R). Today, select a weight that allows for uninterrupted sets of each movement, and rest as needed between.
