    SME (2015).

    (Photo: Ours is one of the few remaining earned, not given, recognition and documentation programs; our Subject Matter Experts have worked hard, hammered details, made progress, and then proven it under fire.

    Athletes and trainers: If you are looking for an improvement-driven measure of progress that requires more than just the obligatory little bit of money and a few hours on a weekend- and that gives back far more than a pre-stamped piece of paper- please read further and then make contact.

    Additionally: Taking credit for something you haven’t done is a slap in the face to those that have done, is despicable, and is punishable.)

    1-arm kettlebell row:

    6 x 3L, 3R @ as heavy as possible uninterrupted

    Rest as needed between sets. If a set requires interruption adjust one interval down and re-do it uninterrupted. When scheme is listed as “6 x 3L, 3R″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”.

    Then, 5 aggressive minutes of:

    10 Dumbbell power snatch/ Kettlebell snatch @ 1/4 BW
    (Switch arms as desired)

    1 Sled drag (20 yd. @ 3/4 BW)

    ”Drag” = forward, and “Pull” = backward. Count rounds and completed half-rounds/ reps. If designated snatch weight creates a compromised position, make as minor an adjustment as needed to continue safely.

    And then:

    Complete 120 sit-ups in 5 minutes.

    Strategize and configure sets based on movement speed and fatigue- select movements and perform sets that allow for a strong pace and excellent positions throughout. Today, use no more than 2 total sit-up variations, adjusting between them as desired/ needed. Choices consist of: V-up, Abmat sit-up/ variation, 360 sit-up. Each rep under 120 at the end of 5 minutes = 2 burpees. (Ex. 90 completed = 60 burpee penalty)
