Strength In Conditioning for Tuesday, November 11th, 2014
Only the realest of the real are willing subject themselves to anything titled “Death by…” knowing they will not only come out on the other side alive, but also rise from their own sweat and ashes stronger than they were before. Today’s conditioning is more than just a physical battle; it is a battle of soul. Today we stare death in the face and decide not to lay down and surrender, but instead to lay down into a damn burpee! Oh, and then a power clean.
Here’s how it works:
“Death by” is a performed by doing one repetition of the given exercise in the first minute and resting for the remainder of the minute. Then two repetitions are perfomed on the second minute, resting for the remainder of the minute. This process is repeated until you can no longer complete the number of reps in the given minute. Your score is the number of minutes completed plus any extra reps.
Seem not so bad? Death doesn’t come around waving its hand and handing out business cards. It comes veiled only to creep up when you least expect it. Today, expect it around minute six.
