Rest Day
Make-up Day
3 rounds:
400m run
9 Burpee Clean and Jerk (4olb-20lb Dumbbells)
12 KtE's
15 Sumo Dead lift High Pull (75lbs -45lbs)
We don't use scales in here. Never have, never will. I'd gladly destroy ever scale I get my hands on. Jon Gilson states it more eloquently than I can. Weight is deceptive. 200 pounds on the bar is 200 pounds but what you weigh one day may not be the same as the next. You may weigh more at night than you do during the day. If my car was as unreliable as a scale, I'd have sold it long ago. Simply stated muscle weighs more than fat. Most people (especially women and those already lean) will gain weight as they get stronger especially in here.
Ask yourself the more important questions: How do I feel? How do I look? Am I more capable today than I was yesterday? Do you really need the validation of a scale for your success in here? Or is moving up to the next band, putting 10 more pounds on your deadlift or running a 400 faster enough?
