Dont' forget that this Saturday is JacIntoStorm '09, to celebrate Jacinto's 70th birthday.
Check out this post for some pictures from last year's storm.  We will be doing the same workout with the exception that one rep will be added to each movement.  Jacinto will be hosting a BBQ at his house afterwards. More details to follow.

MEBBBK: Max Effort Black Box (Brooklyn!)

Today is the last day of our Mid Hang Power Clean, High Bar Back Squat and Bench Press strength cycle.  We're going to encourage a back off week from tomorrow until 7/4 when we'll kick things off with a STORM

The next cycle's movements are:
Total Body: Push Jerks
Lower Body: Front Squats
Upper Body: Weighted Chin-Ups (Overhand). 

For those of you unfamiliar with the MEBB, we choose three movements and cycle them through a descending rep scheme over four weeks. The Max Effort days have been posted in the CFSBK Calendar if you'd like to see how it breaks down through July. Much thanks to Coach Michael Rutherford for developing the MEBB. program.

Notes:
Jerks are following a 5x3, 5x3, 5x1 rep scheme
Foundations Graduates will be doing strict Presses instead of Jerks and follwing a 5x5 rep scheme throughout the entire cycle.


Happy Travels, Margie. We'll see you after the Games!

Back Squat

1-1-1-1-1

High Bar Position

Post loads to comments.
compare to 6.14.09 and 4.13.09

Accessory Work
1 one-arm kb clean to 1 kb jerk to 1 overhead squat (right/left)
2 one-arm kb cleans to 2 kb jerks to 2 overhead squats (right/left)
3 one-arm kb cleans to 3 kb jerks to 3 overhead squats (right/left)
etc...

You don't put the bell down at all - any rest is going to be done in the rack and overhead positions. This complex is a variation of the clean and squat combo that Dan John introduced in the thread Kbell Dbl Clean to Dbl Front Squat.
