It takes a lot of guts to walk into the halls of The Movement Program. Heavy weights and screams flying through the air. Bodies strewn prostrate, shaking as the burn of hydrogen ions courses through defeated muscles. Who would willingly do this to themselves?
Only those with big cajones.
Big cajones get you in the door. Big cajones get your hands around a barbell. They move your body on blazing fast running intervals and agonizingly slow and heavy squats. Eventually big cajones allow you to do things that you never thought possible.
Xuan has big cajones. She earns the shout out of the day award, because…well. I’ll let her speak for herself.
Cajones are getting bigger everdyday.
This week’s loads will be a bit lower on our barbell mechanics as we will be deloading on intensity. Don’t expect weightlifting percentages to be higher than 65% all week.
We started off the day hitting two split jerks for ten minutes EMOM. Afterwards, conditioning consisted of an easy 8 minute AMRAP of push jerks, front squats, and bar facing burpees, because after all the shorter the workout the easier, right?
Big cajones for the win!
