Err...video of these push-up kickback things?
Joe 2 | 2008-02-07
How many sets for the complex?
Greg Everett 3 | 2008-02-07
Joe - 5

Allen - Nope. Just think of it as a burpee without a jump up... and 3 kicks back and forward instead of one.
Allen Y 4 | 2008-02-08
That makes more sense to me.

For some reason I was picturing something completely different.

missed wed, so tried to mash wed/fri together. been pretty run down this week.... stayed conservative.

pwr cln complex - 95#
bs - 145# (78%)
sn pull - only up to 185#, but form felt right.

oh sq - up to 125# (90%). ugh, havent done these in a while.

metcon:

5- 37" box jumps (upper thigh)
10- 45# sandbag pwr cln + push press (25% BW)
10- sdhp w/ 2 pd KB (40% BW)

I know you're into intermittent fasting, but what do you think of fasting for a week or so to do a cleanse, as in the Master Cleanse with the lemonade and saltwater flush to clean out your system. My nutrition isn't bad, but do you think something like this is seriously detrimental to one's health? The idea is to flush yourself of toxins and waste then get back to a quality eating plan like the zone.

Today's workout

5 rounds for time

5 135 lb snatch
5 42" box jump
5 muscle ups

Matt -

I'm not a big fan of cleanses and fasts like that - they all rely on some kind of sugary-carb fluid, and I see no possible good coming from subsisting on that for any period of time. If your nutrition is good and you're feeling good, I wouldn't bother. If you really want to try it, I'd do a legit fast for a few days - no lemonade. But a 24-on/24-off IF approach might be even better for a week or so.

What is a 'heavy single'? Are we shooting for max with those or 95%? Or just what feels heavy for that day?
Greg Everett 11 | 2008-02-08
Craig -

Heavy single just means taking the weight up to as heavy as you feel comfortable with that day. One day, that may be only 85%, and another it may be a PR. Basically a max for the day.
Tim Wheeler 12 | 2008-02-08
Hey Greg,
What is your opinion on the MILO journal. Is it worth the big bucks they charge? Thanks,
-Tim
Greg Everett 13 | 2008-02-08
Milo is cool if you have the dough. Pretty broad coverage of strength sports. I haven't seen an issue in quite a while, but I think it tends to be a lot of strongman stuff these days.
