Warm-up

1: Bandit Barbell Clean AND Jerk Warm-up (No Measure)

Strength

Today, we are doing the Pensacola Beach Brawl strength events.

When the time starts in this event, you should have at least 3, or possibly even 4-5 attempts.

For today’s work, the coach will need to spend time helping you decide an opening weight that can help you to get to your max as soon as possible.

My suggestion is to open at a moderately heavy weight that you can hit all day every day–no matter the external factors: fatigue, mood, soreness, etc. Next, move to a weight that is challenging, perhaps even your current 1RM, depending on how you feel. Then, that will leave you time to repeat it if you fail. If you make it, then you will get time to go higher.

At competitions, it is very common to hit PRs. The adrenaline in your system is at a high, and you can do some pretty amazing things.

If you miss an attempt in the 6 minutes, do not reattempt right away–unless the miss was at an easy weight, and you know that the miss was merely technical. If you have a miss that took a lot of effort, you need to take a full rest (as if you made the lift) before you reattempt. You definitely don’t want to spend 2 minutes wearing yourself out with back-to-back-to-back attempts in a desperate move to make it. It is better to get some

It is important to note that you will need to spend some considerable time in the warmup area warming up so you can go right into your heat ready to make at least three attempts at heavier weights. There is little time to work up. You must be primed for the heavy stuff when you get in there.

The coaches today will give you about 20 minutes to warmup. Start light with fives, triples and/or doubles, and then move up to about 70% and singles if you are doing the individual clean and jerk event.

The coach will start the 6 min clock around the :25 minute mark in the class.

The E2MOM work that we have been doing on Mondays and Tuesdays should be very helpful in helping you recover quickly here.

Conditioning

Since we don’t know the distance, let’s just do a 400 meter sandbag run today.

Also, we don’t know how heavy the bags will be, and we don’t have a beach to run on or do our burpees on at the gym. It’s ok.

Just do the work to get the feel of this. Surprises are fun sometimes.
