“If you know you opponent, but not yourself, you will lose 100% of the time.” – Samurai Proverb

To “keep up with the Jones” is an old expression about competitive neighbors. A power struggle, or maybe better said a popularity struggle, of status on the block. To “keep up”, one must be on top of their investigative game, predicting the next big move… a nicer lawn, or a better Christmas card.

As we visualize these friendly rivals battling it out on the block, it’s safe to say that both sides will lose. There won’t be a winner here.

We can study our competition into great length. And, we will indeed learn some absolutely beneficial statistics. But all the external statistics in the world won’t move us forward until we turn the investigative glasses to ourselves.

-This is the 2nd week of a 3 week incremental build in percentages on front squats waves

-We’re building 3% across all lifts from last week

-Percentages are based off your 1RM Front Squat

-Each set will start on the top of the minute

-Have your extra plates nearby beforehand, as you’ll have less than 60 seconds to change out weights between sets


Blue Steel (Time)

(21 Min Cap)

3 Rounds:

7 Power Snatches (75/55)

7 Toes to Bar

7 Box Jumps (24/20)

21 Calorie Row

3 Rounds:

7 Power Snatches (75/55)

7 Toes to Bar

7 Box Jumps (24/20)

21 Calorie Row

3 Rounds:

7 Power Snatches (75/55)

7 Toes to Bar

7 Box Jumps (24/20)


-Separated by calories on the brower we have 3 rounds – 3 movements – 3 times through

-You’ll complete all three rounds of snatches, toes to bar, and box jumps before moving on to the rower calories

-Your score is total time it takes to complete the workout


-The power snatch comes from the floor and is designed to be very light

-This should be a load that you can complete ideally unbroken each time

Toes to Bar:

-With a small number of reps each time, choose a variation or rep scheme that allows you to complete the 7 toes to bar in 1-2 sets

Box Jumps:

-With these being regular box jumps, let’s stand to complete extension on top of the box at the finish of each rep


Snatches and Toes to Bar:

-We have a light weight and low reps on the barbell

-That being said, let’s see if we can complete the power snatches in 1-2 sets

-The same goes for the toes to bar, as the smaller rep scheme enables us to push the limits for big or unbroken sets

-Try to go 7 straight or maybe even a quick 4-3

Box Jumps:

-Use the box jumps as your pacer in order to allow for bigger sets on the first two movements

-Since we’re not holding onto anything on the box jumps, we can simply keep moving here finding a pace that supports strong snatches and toes to bar

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed, is to always try, one more time.” – Thomas Edison

Failing hurts.
Let’s not beat around the bush here.
It’s not a comfortable place.
But to look at failure as a sign to stop, or to give up, is a fundamental misunderstanding of what it actually means to “fail”.

The nature of a failure is not to tell us who we are. Nor is it to tell us if we are good enough, or deserving enough, to succeed.

The nature of a failure is to tell us a way that didn’t work. It’s to educate us.

“Giving up” is our greatest weakness purely because it counters our greatest strength. That of adaptability. As history has shown, we just need to pick ourselves back up, and use what we have learned. It’s why the human race has survived this far.

When we train ourselves to view failure as the teacher and guide it is, there is only one move to make: to try one, more, time.

“The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” – Malcolm X

There’s something intoxicating about planning for the future. It’s the dream-world.

Yet when it comes time to cross the bridge from planning to execution, many lose their way. And nothing materializes.

View preparation as two parts, equally theoretical and tangible action.
Without the thought behind, it’s wasted energy in multiple directions.
And without action to follow thought, it’s nothing but a pipe dream.

There will be the voice that tells us, “there’s time to do this tomorrow”. But that brings us back to the quote we started with above. Are we going to react to tomorrow, or are we going to respond to today?

Push Jerk (only for percentages)

Push Press

Pausing Push Press

4 Sets of the Complex:

-1 Pausing Push Press + 1 Push Press

–1 Pausing Push Press + 1 Push Press

Set 1: 60% of 1RM Jerk

Set 2: 65% of 1RM Jerk

Sets 3-4: 70% of 1RM Jerk


-Working through 4 sets of 4 unbroken barbell reps in this overhead complex

-The barbell comes from the rack and percentages are based off your 1RM Jerk

-Pause 2 seconds in the dip of the Pausing Push Press

-There is no pause in the regular Push Press

-Rest as needed between sets


-The goal of the Pausing Push Press is to establish a strong, vertical dip position

-In the 2 second pause, focus on keeping the:

-Torso Vertical

-Heels Down

-Elbows Up


Four Loco (Time)

On the 4:00 x 5 Rounds:

20/15 Calorie Row

40 Double Unders

7 Front Squats (135/95) (Rx+=185/135)


-Working through 5 rounds of this interval workout

-You’ll complete the 3 movements as quickly as possible and rest until the next 4 minute window begins

-Rounds begin on the 0-4-8-12-16

-Your score is the slowest score of the 5 rounds

-We want rest today in order to keep the intensity on the higher side, so cap each round at 3 minutes, or 1 minute per movement

Double Unders

-Choose a double under variation that you can complete unbroken in around 30 seconds each round

Front Squats

-The barbell comes from the floor for the front squats, so it should also be a weight you can clean

-Choose a moderately heavy front squat weight, but something you’ll complete unbroken every round

-It is ok to squat clean the first rep


-With rest built in and the score being the slowest of the 5 rounds, we want to find a strong, but sustainable pace from the beginning

-On the row, focus on a controlled stroke rate with a hard leg drive

-Use the recovery here to keep the heart rate down instead of flying through your strokes

-With a relatively small number of double unders, shoot for unbroken sets if you can

-However, if you know you’re going to need to break on one movement, it’s better to do so on the rope than on the front squats

-Finally, once the barbell is on your shoulders, keep it there and try to grind out the 7 reps straight to finish out the rounds

“Pursue one great decisive aim with force and determination.” – Carls Von Karlswich

Choice is one of the most powerful things we have as human beings.
But hiding in that power, is also one of the most destructive forces imaginable.

Ironically enough, the missing link to accomplishing that “thing”, is choice… specifically, the lack of it.

A different thought process from the quote above, is to stop trying to do everything.

To be able to stand in a room with a thousand doors, and be able to close 999 of them.

Are we trying to do too much? Sometimes less truly can be more.

Metcon (No Measure)


-3 Tempo Negative Strict Handstand Push-ups

-5 Strict Toes to Bar

Directly Into..


-1 Wall Walk

-1 Strict Chest to Bar Pull-up

-1 Strict Pull-up

-1 Kipping Pull-up

-1 Chest to Bar Pull-up


Part Time (Time)

(20 Min Cap)

3 Rounds:

-12 Burpees Over Dumbbell

-18 Pull-ups (Rx+= C2B)

Directly Into…

3 Rounds:

-12 Alternating Dumbbell Snatches (55/35) (Rx+=70/50)

-18/12 Calorie Row


-We’ll complete two couplet workouts with no rest between

-All 3 rounds of the burpees and pull-ups should be completed before moving on to the snatches and row

-Expecting this conditioning piece to take around 12-20 minutes to complete


-The burpees are to be completed lateral over the dumbbell

-There is no need to stand to full extension, but the feet should pass over the top of the dumbbell each time


-Choose a variation or rep scheme that allows you to complete the 18 reps in at least sets of 3-5 during the workout

Dumbbell Snatches:

-Alternate arms every rep, completing 6 on each side

-This should be a slightly heavier weight, but something that you could complete at least 12 reps unbroken when fresh


First Part:

-With a sneaky 54 pull-ups across the 3 rounds, we can think about breaking these up from the beginning to preserve our upper body pull

-Consider the following sets:

1 Set: 18

2 Sets: 9-9

3 Sets: 6-6-6

4 Sets: 6-5-4-3

5 Sets: 4-4-4-3-3

6 Sets: 3’s

-We’ll always be moving on the burpees, so find a pace that supports your pull-up strategy

-If you know you’ll need some more time to recover your pull-up, slow these reps down and just keep moving

Second Part:

-The movement we’ll always stay moving on during the second part, like the burpees in part 1, is the row

-That being said, let’s push to also stay moving as much as possible on the movement we would stop on – the dumbbell snatches

-Switching on the ground can be helpful when finding a rhythm with the heavier bell, but if you’re able to, switching in the air is faster

-While we’ll always be moving on the rower, it’s not a throw away station, as we get a big calorie payoff for higher power outputs

-Try to start the row fast each time to get that first calorie or two to tick off quickly, then settle into a moderate pace for the remaining calories

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

One of the most challenging things we can do, is to reflect. To reflect, with brutal honesty.

This quote can be applied in many ways, but it’s most commonly applied to the physical acts of our days. Whether we show up to the gym at 5:30am to train. Whether we eat the proper food we brought to work with us, or order out for lunch.

What’s more challenging, is to look further inward. And reflect, with brutal honesty, on our thoughts. The way we think.

When we missed the lift, what were our immediate thoughts?
When we were cut off on the road by another car, what did we say to ourselves?
When the gossip arrived in the locker room, what did we first think?

If our thoughts become actions, this must be where we start.

Air Fryer (Time)

3 Rounds: (15 Min Cap)

50 Air Squats

10 Power Clean & Jerks (135/95)

-“Air Fryer” is a simple and effective couplet workout of Air Squats and Power Clean and Jerks

-Choose a weight on the barbell that you could cycle for upwards of 20+ reps unbroken when fresh

-Within the workout, this should be a weight that you can complete ‘touch and go’ sets

-We expect the 3 rounds to take somewhere in the 5-10 minute range to complete


-Today is a fantastic opportunity to get aggressive on the barbell

-The air squats essentially serve as our pacer, allowing us to work through large ‘touch and go’ clean and jerks

-Find the max pace on your 50 air squats that still allows you to attack the 10 barbell reps

-On the barbell, try to minimize sets – aiming for somewhere between 1-3:

1 Set: 10

2 Sets: 5-5

3 Sets: 4-3-3
