Hope you all had a great holiday weekend. Although delayed for a day by some extreme weather, we’re getting the last week of 2010 underway. No more shoveling driveways or digging out cars for time, and no more snowman building AMRAPs. Tuesday we’re getting you right back under the bar with a five by five back squat, and getting your hands right back on some weight for conditioning.
The objects we’re using for the metcon aren’t really unconventional, but we’re not going to use them in a typical way. Bumper plates are meant to be picked up and put overhead, but usually when on a barbell, held in place by a collar. The prescribed weight is the same as an empty bar, but the unusual shape, and difficulty in handling the bumpers makes for an added challenge. This time when mixing up the stimulus it should only be tough to breath because of the intensity of the workout and tough to see because of sweat in your eyes, unlike the last time we used an odd object.
