This weekend we’re finally back to some competitive exercising for money. At both Europa Dallas, and Summer Crush, there will be Outlaw “super teams” vying for the tops spots. The Texas Outlaw team will be taking on Europa Dallas, and will feature: Jason Hoggan, Candice Ruiz, Courtney Wuistinger, Christy Harper, and my very own 12-year-old Weightlifting coach, Spencer Arnold. The team taking on Summer Crush is no less impressive, and will feature Lauren Brooks, Sarabeth Phillips, and—in her first competition since becoming the third fittest woman on earth—Talayna Fortunato.
The possible podiums, prize money, and free shit they could win is all great, but I care about more interesting stuff. Like… Which team is better? I know, they don’t match up easily (5 vs 3, odd numbers of chicks and dudes, etc), but there’s gotta be enough there to compare to spark up a pretty good debate, right? I mean it works on the NFL network, it should work here too.
Awe… This makes me miss Exercisecenter. C’mon Pat, give us some predictions. Lemme guess, Azadeh?
It’s Deacon’s birthday. That means I have the excuse to give you guys a really hard workout using the corresponding numbers, and you can’t complain because he’s the cutest, most awesomest little dude in the world. (Yes, his shirt is a little dirty in the pic. He’s a baby you critical assholes. Maybe you should try eating while someone else holds the food.)
1) 15 minutes to establish a 1RM Snatch.
2) 15 minutes to establish a 1RM Clean and Jerk.
15 minutes to establish a 1RM Front Squat.
Notes: These should be at absolute rock-bottom depth. DO NOT stop at just parallel to score a big number. Go to absolute bottom to score a true number.
12 minute AMRAP of:
11 Pause Pullups
8 Behind the Neck Push Jerks 185/120# (racks may be used)
18 Pistols (alternating)
Notes: Pause Pullups are pull-ups performed with a 3 second pause while holding the chin over the bar. If the chin does not remain over the bar for a full 3 seconds, the reps does not count. If there is debate on how long 3 seconds is, set up a clock within clear view of the pull-up bar and literally watch the 3 seconds count off. These may be any grip and kipping is allowed.
