[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Hey Folks!

burpees on burpees on burpees!  That was a mental game and a half!  Physical too, but it’s SO easy to waste a second here and there and (if you’re me) not perform as well as you potentially could!  I’m still happy with my performance, but I need to get more comfortable pushing into those uncomfortable zones.  You might have some similar issues from time to time, or your own stuff – either way, it’s nice to be introspective sometimes and think about how you can improve on something as simple as burpees.

BIG congrats to Chris on getting his first muscle up tonight – and welcome back to James F (for a day or two) to the gym!  You’ve been missed buddy!  Congrats to everyone else who PR’d today – the names are too numerous to mention, but you’re all awesome!

Also, everyone starts somewhere… while Khalipa looks jacked, check out his form on his Clean and Jerks![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rvhUdzbB6s”][vc_accordion][/vc_accordion][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

Max Pull ups
1 (or 2 if you feel like you messed up somehow) set for max pull ups without coming off the bar. 

Make sure you’re warmed up well and you’ve chalked your hands, etc. You can stop moving, but not drop off the bar. Once you drop or touch the ground, your set is done. Have fun with it!


Max Push ups
Max Push ups without stopping. 

Push ups begin with straight arms, touch chest and thighs to ground, then in a nice plank chest and thighs come up TOGETHER. No worming. Unless you are scaling, in which case worming is allowed. No claiming you got 78 push ups when you got 78 half, wormy push ups. Anyone can run a 4-minute mile when it’s only half a mile.
