For the story on this WOD see the above link and video. This old main site workout featured HQ trainers, 2008 Games winner Jason Khalipa, and our own local hero Kallista Pappas of Jet City CF (she was the youngest ever Games athlete). In the video they use racks to pick up the bar to go overhead; we did not. Clean it off the floor and go. Drop it and you have to clean it again. No rack also makes you prioritize technique and efficiency overhead rather than racking it to keep push pressing it.
Day 8 of our Stop the Slop Challenge. We hope you are all still in and having a paleo-riffic time! At this point you likely have been grouchy, dealing with energy swings, and potentially craving something. Don’t give in, be strict! This next week you should start to see some positive changes and you will start feeling more energetic and recover faster.
