10 minutes…

Like all other things, this too shall pass.  10 minutes will start.  10 minutes will end.  Hundreds of seconds of your life will come and go as quickly as the ones that came before.  In the context of all time, this will be a blink.  In the context of pushing your limits, this can be a testament to you.  You are given a choice, in these 10 minutes, to demonstrate to yourself your physical limits and after that your mental limits.  How you choose to live these 10 minutes will show what you are willing to give for the sweet taste of one additional repetition.  This time may only be a blink, but it is also the specific moment to prove to yourself what you are capable of.

Show time,



Tips for the workout…

All sets of the Shoulder to Overhead and Deadlift should be done unbroken.  Do not drop the bar.  All fifteen reps are more than doable in every round.

Keep your pressing  motion organized AND re-rack the bar as neatly as possible.  Taking additional time to do so will benefit you in the long run.

When transferring the bar from overhead to the Deadlift, keep it as close to the body as possible.  You don’t want to start your Deadlift in a bad position.

Save your legs as much as you can in both of those two movements.  The magnitude of Box Jumps will demand a lot.

Figure out what you are doing for the Box Jumps and stick to it.  Will you be doing bounding Box Jumps?  Will you be stepping down?  Will you be stepping up (which you can do)?

Since it is only 10 minutes, just keep yourself moving.  The moment you finish the Box Jumps, pick up the bar immediately and start doing work.  Rest between the Deadlift and the Box Jump, not between the reps of any exercise.
