''Unbroken Overhead Squat Ascension Ladder and The Sisyphus Challenge'' (02.05.2011)

''To master Kung-Fu the training must be severe.''
--Louie Simmons

''Unbroken Overhead Squat Ascension Ladder'' (02.05.2011)
Against a running clock execute 1 x Overhead Squat on the first minute, 2 x Overhead Squats on the second minute, 3 x Overhead Squats on the third minute... continuing until the workload can no longer be accomplished within it's 1:00 window. Overhead Squat sets must be 'unbroken' to count (no dumping or re-racking between reps), however, multiple attempts may be made if time permits after a fail.

Notes: Use 55-65% of your most recent 1-Rep maximum.

''The Sisyphus Challenge'' (02.05.2011)
Complete as many consecutive, unbroken wallball shots (20/14lbs) to a 10 foot target as possible. Warm-up sets and reps are allowed, but only one attempt for score will be allowed. Try not to knock yourself out...
