A. Take 20 minutes-
Bench Press: Heavy 3 with 1 second pause in bottom position.
*Compare scores to 11.27.13
Pause explained: We will be taking a standard from Competition Power Lifting. The 1 second pause will be held just above chest, so every rep is from a deadstop! No pause, no rep! In competition this pause eliminated the ability to bounce the bar off the chest and of course takes out the stretch reflex all together!
B. 4 Rounds:
3 1/2 Minutes of work, 90 seconds of rest.
Max hand release pushups in 1 minute
Row half that number in calories
*Fill remaining time with max reps shoulder to overhead 135/95lbs
*Score is total number of calories and reps completed over all 4 rounds
