I’ve been meaning to post this for the better part of a week, but you guys keep doing such ridiculous stuff that I keep having to put it off. Luckily, today wrought zero world records, and everyone has grown tired of Jay Rhodes PRing on everything. So tonight you get boring old me and the Outlaw Assistant Head Coach in Charge of Drooling: Deacon, coaching up the CF Central competitive exercise team. This video features 3 things which will make any video amazing: 1) Deacon. 2) Three full-grown American beards. 3) Slow motion weightlifting. You’re welcome.
This weekend, at Outlaw homebase 1a, we’re hosting a nice little gathering of some of the baddest exercisers in the world—aka the Outlaw 2012 Games Training Camp. Guess fucking what? We’re going to let all of you play along at home, and go head-to-head with Akinwale 2.0, BP, T, and “The Original Outlaw” Jason Hoggan, amongst others. (I’ll give you the next 16 seconds to go clean yourself up). I’ll be posting the WODs for each day the night before, and will be tweeting (I fucking hate myself for saying that) the results live on The Outlaw Way twitter. Yep, it’s just like Regionals, except you can all win because there’s no judges!!!
No, there won’t be a leaderboard, and I’m not even promising to stick to the WODs I post, but you guys can at least have some fun playing the home version of the “what if” game. We will be doing at least 2 WODs on Sunday, so, if you want to play along the entire weekend, you should probably try not to drink yourself unconscious Saturday night. I will also try to post the approximate time we’ll be performing the WODs, so if you literally
HAVE NO LIFE love training, you can sit around the gym all day, and WOD at the exact moment (give or take 14 hours) that BP is sweating in Virginia (or more than likely drinking a sugar-free vanilla latte). To make it feel even more like a douche-y “THROWDOWN”, I’ll be giving each WOD a name so you can tell all your friends you beat Elisabeth Akinwale on “The Fear Denominator” because your Box Jumps are amazing (I’m sure they’ll be wet with excitement).
Anyhoo, should be a fun weekend. I get to coach some of the worlds fittest humans, and you guys get to take ice baths all by yourselves. Remember: Strong is the New Snarky.
WOD 120608 – Games Camp Day 1:
“The Only Time You Have to Take Your Shirt Off is After the Exam”
Take as long as you’d like to establish a 1RM Snatch, then 1RM Clean & Jerk.
Notes: We’ll be having a 2-3 hour lifting session beginning Friday around 5pm. We’ll work on technique on the lifts, and will work up to some heavy singles. You may take as long as you’d like and take as many attempts as you’d like, but when it’s just not going up – stop. Please make sure to Snatch first, then Clean & Jerk.
“BP Made up a WOD That None of You Can Do”
7 Bear Complex @ 185/120#
50′ HS Walk
5 Bear Complex @ 205/135#
50′ HS Walk
3 Bear Complex @ 225/150#
50′ HS Walk
Notes: 1 “Bear Complex” is: 1 Clean, 1 Front Squat, 1 Push Press or Jerk, 1 Back Squat, 1 (Behind the Neck) Push Press or Jerk. There are many variations of the Bear Complex, but we will use the one listed above. You may combine the Clean and FS into a “Squat Clean”, or you may PC then FS. A full standing position must be achieved before the PP or PJ begins (Thrusters are not allowed). Once the bar is overhead, it must be lowered to the back then the BS should be performed. After the BS a full standing position must be achieved before the Behind the Neck PP or PJ begins (again, no Thrusters). When the BB returns to the front rack 1 Bear Complex is complete.
The barbell must then touch the floor WITH NO STOPPAGE OF MOMENTUM for the next rep to begin. This means both hands must be in control of the bar as it touches the floor. Basically the goal is complete the prescribed reps for each round without allowing the bar to stop momentum on the floor, or dropping it. There is a 20 Burpee penalty to be performed immediately, every time the barbell is dropped or rests on the floor. Resting with the BB off the ground IS ALLOWED, and the hands DO NOT need to remain in contact with the BB as long as it is off the ground.
