Front-loading the week with a pulling focus (and putting a version of burpee box jumps early in the week as well) was a bit self-serving I must admit - NOW YOU HAVE SIX DAYS UNTIL SUNDAY WHEN YOU CAN COMPLETE THE SEPTEMBER OPEN GYM CHALLENGE.

One important note - we have changed the time on the workout to 10 minutes (it was originally 12 minutes). Here’s the revised workout so that everyone has the correct version:

With a Partner Against a 10-Minute Clock For MAX POUNDS LIFTED:

100 Burpee Box Jump Overs*** @ 24/20 in

Max Deadlifts @ pick load

-Partners must use ONE barbell (i.e. the same weight).

-Only one person working at a time, switch whenever you like (reps do not have to be split evenly).

-Your score is the total poundage lifted (reps x weight chosen).

***”Open Standards” (i.e. facing the box is required, jumping up is required)

Sarah and I laid down the gauntlet this past Sunday to fan the flame a little and see if anyone will come in this weekend to take a shot at beating us. I will not disclose our strategy (other than I tried really hard not to slow her down too much) or chosen weight… but the (10-minute) score to beat is 11,800 total pounds.

Come at us, BRUH!
