M.E. DECK SNATCH 053110




M.E. Deck Snatch 3-3-3-1-1-1

Rest 5:00

How far can you run with an interval program of:

40 INTERVALS OF:
:20 work
:10 rest

Items to assist you with your workout

- A measured 400 meter distance
- An interval timer/watch that will permit a pre programmed intervals totaling 40 sets.

As soon as the work interval ends you must slow to a walk. No jogging. The stopping and starting is part of the challenge.


This will take some planning to measure your running distance. The obvious choice is a measured 400m distance. I strongly suggest a solid warm-up including some build up sprints.

MORE THAN LOOKING BETTER IN YOUR UNDERWEAR

The picture Dina is holding is her before picture which is typically most folks after picture.  


When folks inquire about our program I'm usually required to tell them how we are different than xyz's Boot Camp at the mall.

For starters, we have been at this longer than anyone else in the metro.  Secondly, our staff doesn't just talk the talk, they walk the walk.  We are all athletes, coaching athletes.  Third, we are the only CrossFit affiliate in Johnson County and as a result our mix of "Boot Camp" movements and program go beyond sit ups in dew covered grass.

Finally, most important,  we pursue performance.  We program to improve your athletic profile.  We know you will look better in your underwear but we are programming for more reps, heavier loads and a faster time.

While you will most certainly look better in your underwear after training with us, you will also have something under the hood to show for your work.

To prove a point here is a little update on Dina.  You might recall that her journey started back in October.  My guy Robb Wolf published this as the process began.

It's one thing to take a couch potato and fly your victory flag, but it's another thing when an established athlete, in this case a former collegiate track athlete, and find a way to shave a minute or two off a marathon time P.R.

In Dina's case we did more than shave a few minutes.  We took almost a half hour off her personal best! Yeah, 27 minutes off her marathon P.R on one of the biggest stages The Boston Marathon.  Additionally, she drop several percentage body fat and currently rolls around at 12 %.

I've been at this coaching routine for awhile and even I'm a little surprised.

So when you are looking for a performance based, fun as hell approach to strength and conditioning you know where to go.
