Spring Break-Out Challenge

This week we start training for a new strength challenge, The Spring Break-Out, which will take place March 7 & 8, 2011. This new challenge comes on the heels the Festivus Feats of Strength, which wrapped up on December 23rd, and was a huge success. The Spring Break-Out is another challenge to motivate and keep clients focused during the winter's months.

The Spring Break-Out Challenge will consist of three strength exercises and one strength-endurance. The strength exercises include: the barbell back squat-

The barbell overhead press-

and the prone (true) pull-up-

The goal is to lift the maximal amount of weight that can be lifted one time with proper technique.

The strength-endurance exercise is the 3:00 kettlebell snatch-

The goal is to perform as many reps as possible in 3:00 (1:30 on right, and 1:30 on left arm).

The challenge is set. Now, time to set some new PR's!
