“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.” – Guillaume Apollinaire
Just another lazy Sunday afternoon at Efficient Exercise. I thought that an old school squat clean paired with a new school ARXFit chest press would make for an interesting combo. And hey, why not pull off an even 10 rounds of ’em, right?
So here’s what it looked like on the white board:
…and here’s a clip of round 6:
This was a pretty friggin’ brutal combo, to say the least.
You’ll notice two numbers listed under the ARXFit chest press — “Average” and “Max”. The max represents the instantaneous maximum force generated during the repetition (always hit on the eccentric). The average is just that — the average force generated over the 8 to 10 second TUL (time under load). The goal, of course, is to generate the biggest numbers possible on each rep. My average didn’t fall-off to the extent that my maximum did over the course of 10 rounds. Not surprising, as repeat power performance is right in my wheelhouse. Not the fastest, nor the strongest — but I can hit 90% repeats on a consistent basis.
