How are you feeling today?  Are you ready to be amazing?  Remember that all of our actions first start with our thoughts.  I want you to think positively and then do.  Instead of using the words “have to” I want you to use “get to” for everything you do today.  I get to get out of bed early.  I get to go to work.  I get to clean the kitchen.  Think positive and be awesome.  Let’s keep it simple today.
Workout Strategy
Today is a test day.  We have three movements that will test our cardiovascular system and average power output.  The rower and jumprope are cardio components.  If you can not string together more than 20 double unders then do single jumps.  The KettleBell Snatch will test your power output.  Remember the Snatch movement has the highest power output of any of the movements we do.  This is because the Snatch start on the floor and goes to full extension above our head.  This is done with a large load and moved extremely quick.  Today will also help us measure our Stamina.  Remember our stamina is our ability to recover and perform the same movement.  That one minute break will go by quickly.  Those with better Stamina will have scores that are the most consistent.  If your first round has twice as many reps as your last round then we need to work on your Stamina.  To accurately see results we will need maximum efforts today.  On the Snatch lets make sure we keep our back in an extended and static position.  As we extend the arm overhead keep your should as close to your head as possible and reach straight up.
