The 100 Rep Challenge today was KB Push Press. I was very clear about what I expected on each rep. Pause one second in the rack position and get a full lock out overhead with the ear in front of the biceps. The penalty for putting the KBs down is 7x Burpee/Pull-ups. The penalty for NOT putting the bells down is 100 KB Push Presses in a row. Either way I win.

Tammi on her way to 100 consecutive reps. The athletes were allowed to "rest" in the rack position. But as the shoulders begin to fatigue the rack position is anything but "rest."

Sprint hard for 30s on the Airdyne and chase it immediately with 12x lunges at 1/3 BW. Continue until a team goal of 300 calories is reached. The lunges are hardly a reprieve and made the 30s sprint harder than it should have been. It was my way of slowing the whole thing down, ensuring there was a good bit of suffering taking place.
