PUSH Event 5 - Death by Barbell

Team, a unique strength - endurance challenge awaits you for Thursday's training! You'll need to be strong enough to lift the weights and have enough grit to lift them multiple times.


The format of the workout is a "death by" in which you add reps each minute. This death by is a bit different in that you add reps only to the second movement (front squats) while the first movement (thruster) stays at 1 rep each round.


Take a peek at the video below for more details on the specifics of this gritty challenge!




Enjoy!
