WORKOUT OF THE DAY
Jun 29, 2009 100
Two rounds of:
Right arm barbell push-press 12 reps Left arm deadlift 12 reps
Run 800 meters
Left arm barbell push-press 12 reps
Right arm deadlift 12 reps
Run 800 meter
Ahhh the beauty of the one-arm workout. So simple! So hard. That’s CrossFit, eh?
“I’m not trying to tell anyone to quit their gym. The issue isn’t the gym, it’s the whole direction of the fitness industry. Everyone is trying to find a niche, so authors and personal trainers are doing their best to “get a name.” Now, there’s nothing wrong with that idea. The problem comes when an athlete gets so caught up in gadgets, rep cadence, foot placement, and all the rest that they miss the big picture.
Certainly, part of the big picture is to “Go Hard, Go Heavy, and Go Home,” or whatever is on your T-shirt, but the other thing that’s often missed is this: you need to give an exercise, a lift, a training program, a supplement, or a diet some time to work.”
-Dan John, in this awesome article entitled One Dumbbell Workout.
Would completely encourage you guys to read ANYTHING by Dan John. It’s training writing at its most helpful.
