Default Interesting power-biased metcon workout aimed at BBers

Explosive Training for Bodybuilders
Things I found interesting:
Quote:
On the first three biplexes, take as little time as possible between the A and B exercises. When your breathing is almost back to normal, begin the next set. This is where you'll derive most of the benefits of the explosive-conditioning workout.
Quote:
When you get exhausted, don't slow down; instead, use less range of motion...
Quote:
Because this workout is so challenging, and requires so much recovery, I recommend doing it once every two weeks, and always taking the following day off.
Note that many of the statements above are at complete odds with the "standard" metcon most of us are familiar with. Note the emphasis on bodyweight plyometric movements in what I would consider "sane" rep ranges (10-15reps/set).
