After that, it was time for a few deadlifts, followed by a few more deadlifts.
Strength: warm-up with 3-4sets of increasing weight; main set = 3×5 heavy deadlifts (@ ~75% of 1RM).
Met Con: 5 -> 1 ladder of heavy DLs combined with your choice of (1) 3xpush-ups, (2) 2xclapping push-ups, or (3) 1x clapburpus/clapburpos/clapburpees (whatever you want to call them, they’re clapping-push-up burpees, and that’s all that needs to be said).
Individualized suggestions should be making their rounds. In the meantime, be sure to keep up with your food log – we won’t be forcing you to turn them in, BUT we will be asking questions about them both in class and via e-mail, so be sure to keep them up to date (and honest!).
Also, keep an eye out for blog posts during the challenge discussing specific aspects of the challenge, and why we chose the requirements we did. First post should be up this week, and we’re hoping this will help explain our decisions, and also generate some discussion as to general nutritional needs/requirements.
