''Power Cleans EMOTM & Natural Selection'' (07.17.2012)

Information Update:  
Today training will again be conducted by the baseball fields (please see image).
There will be a bit of work getting things set-up in the am but we're getting pretty good at this... we think.
Thanks to everyone for their help moving, dragging, setting up, and breaking down gear and training apparatus ad nauseum.
What's that? We should just dig in and build a FOB?
Hmmmm... the wheels begin to turn.

Warm-up Drills (07.17.2012)
Run 800m
2 Rounds for Quality of:
5 x Sumo Deadlift High Pull (45lbs)
5 x Hang Power Clean (45lbs)
5 x Press (45lbs)
5 x Back Squat (45lbs)
-Shoulder Mobility (priority)
-Scorpion Stretch
-Sumo Squats
-Calf/Soleus Stretch

''Power Cleans EMOTM'' (07.17.2012)
Warm-up as needed before selecting a weight for Power Cleans that is challenging without allowing for a compromise of technique/safety. Each set of two Power Cleans must be completed 'unbroken' as a 'touch-and-go' set (touch the bar to the deck under control after first rep and immediately initiate the next movement. A drop and regrip = fail).
Every minute on the minute execute this type of 2 rep set, resting the remainder of the minute before repeating the effort on the following minute. 
Continue in this fashion for a maximum of ten minutes. If there are any fail sets rest for a full minute before working back into the sets (adjusting load as necessary).

Power Clean 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2

Notes: Spoiler Alert. This is about developing technique under load, not about showcasing the inner alpha-tard ego. Don't worry, there will be plenty of time to sling some heavy weight in the VERY near future. Develop the capacity to perform the movements the right way first, earn the next challenging weight/rep record in a way that truly generates an appreciation for personal discipline and persistence.
