So a while back we did a workout similar to what the L2 is today.  On March 7th, we did this very workout except the rep scheme went up to 11/11.  If you remember this gem, you will also remember how easy and peasy it was to finish.  With that said today we have far less reps and far more technique to assist us in kicking some ass.  Outside of that, all we have left to address is the elephant in the room…there is only one level of strength today.  If you are asking yourself why this is happening to you, please feel free to pick from the following list of reasons:

  • Because I was bad.
  • Because I was good.
  • Because shut up.

If those three reasons do not make sense, then the following explanation is all I have remaining.  With the complex level of lifting that has taken place, we have sharpened our skills and mechanics.  With the biggest competition just around the corner, it is time to check our foundation and see what we can do to build ourselves a bigger and stronger base.  After all, 85% of the Opens are basic movements.  For those of us who are not planning on competing, working on the basics is the perfect way to get back to a broader level of fitness.

Noticed that “Because you are awesome and perfect” was not on that list,
