This is "I hate Pierre" day.

The Auge Chipper:

135# barbell

hang clean shrug x10
hang clean high pull x20
hang clean x30
clean x40

The last two exercises looked like this:

hang clean 5/5/5, hang power clean 5/5/5

clean: 5/5/5/5 power clean 5/5/5/5 (3rd set of full cleans I missed and fell backwards)

This was rough.

I was supposed to immediately go to the bar and squat:

I had 335 loaded on the SSB. I went there and got one, and almost fell over.

I redid the set 2 minutes later:

335x4
355x4
375x4
425x2...I really didn't want to write that. I wanted to write "4". The missing reps are a combination of bonking on the second rep, and not wanting to go down for the third, just to see, because I hate dumping the bar.

Some jumpstretch work to ease the kinks.

I'll have vids of the first Pierre workout and of the third up, probably tonight, but had my camera packed away for the second.

I forgot: 26:19 was the chipper time.

I warmed up: halos, goblet squats, bootstrappers for 2 circuits, then with the SSB + hollow rocks, which I suck at.

Then loaded the SSB bar and had at the chipper.

If I would have done everything to the squat....probably ~30-31 minutes.

The video will show some ugly ass cleans. UGLY. I only missed once and fell backwards.

Let me add that I actually liked this one better than the 10x3 ones. That tells me I probably need to work on upping the heavier volume.

Nice work. May I ask a question please? Pierre is the idea to do the reps continuously or is the idea to pace yourself so that you get it done in the best time possible?

Peter...I think the goal is to be able to do it straight.

However, I have to manage fatigue to reach the end, otherwise I would still be lying on the floor around the 23rd rep of cleans. Or earlier.

Normally I wouldn't do a post-mortem until later. However, this workout, while very tough, did not knock me down like the first workout did with the Sotts presses and the 20 minutes of continuous kettlebell circuits.

I feel tired, sweaty, but invigorated, and I'm coming off a nasty cold from this weekend that had me losing 2 lbs a day in snot.

I fasted until right until this workout, then I broke it with half an Optibol shake. Now I'm going to go eat a bowl of cottage cheese and berries.

135# x 40 cleans should be tough by anyone's standard... Thanks, I may try that during a recovery week of the Hatch cycle instead of the progressive pulls. But that means tape, lots of tape...

Sorry yeah the point is to do it straight, but work management is almost always necessary to complete these workouts. Thats a long marathon grinder... As I said nice work!

This should be called "The Ugly Truth"

No, thats "The Good, the Ugly, the Bad"...

Pierre is that chipper one size fits all or is the weight chosen as a percentage of BW?
