3 Extremes II
After a run of mixed Strength and Met-Con classes, class was reminded on Thursday just how much metabolic conditioning can be garnered from a simple but well coordinated Strength-only class:
8 individual rounds, each round consisting of 3 power cleans from the deck, 2 front squats, and 2 jerks. The workout was not for time, but everyone was urged to maintain only 3 minutes of rest time between lifts. Additionally, the bar should not rest on the ground at any time during a round, with the exception of small adjustments to grip during the cleans. If this seems familiar, it should: check out the original 3 Extremes workouts done on October 13th of this year.
A tough, but excellent class, once again proving that sometimes “simple” can be devastatingly effective at covering multiple fitness requirements: strength, endurance, stability, and mobility.
Great work all around. Hope everyone is planning to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather this weekend!
