Today we get to retest a lovely benchmark! Most people struggle to do this workout RX. The weight tends to get a hair to heavy for people. My suggestion is to pick a weight we know we can handle for multiple reps. Take a look at the video below and watch how the games athletes attack it. Granted they’ve already done 1 benchmark right before this but if the fittest are dropping after a couple sets and going to singles, perhaps you guys should do the same?
Don’t be in a rush with a movement like this. Like we always talk about move well here. Most of you know when you move poorly, and you shouldn’t be proud about it! You should want to fix it. Don’t allow that to happen. Fight to move better each and every time. If you get ugly, try it again and focus on fixing the problem. If the problem happens again then lighten the load and fix the problem, hit that weight a few times and then build back up. Remember this is a lifelong journey. Just because you move like crap and get a PR does not mean that they will continue to happen as time goes on. At some point we have to fix our movement patterns. As the old saying goes, the best time was 10 years ago, the second best time is today!
