Move A Ton

Saturday 02.08.14

Today’s workout is ‘Move A Ton’

Move a Ton board

Move: 1,000kg (guys) / 600kg (girls) in each of the following movements –

  • Snatch (any type – from the floor)
  • Clean & Jerk (any type – from the floor)
  • Back Squat (take the bar from the floor)
  • Deadlift

You decide what weight to lift for each BUT you must increase the weight for each by a minimum of:

  • 10kg for guys
  • 5kg for girls
  • Athletes must also change their own bars

It’s a fast workout today aimed at keeping your technique perfect and fluid through a variety of movements

    Thought this would take a greater toll on me. Glad it didn’t – recovered quickly for a change. 9:30. Went 40, 50, 60 and 80. I realised watching Faran that swapping to 100kg for dead lifts would take longer than the extra 3 reps at 80kg. Good fun once the cleans were over.

    I enjoyed it
    I went 40kg for the snatches, 50kg for the clean and jerks, 60kg for the back squats, and 100kg for the dead lifts.
    And knocked it over in 9:05

    This was fun! Went second so had a chance to assess the weight I used….ended up going lighter. Still struggled more than I expected though! Happy I finished, kind of wasn’t expecting to….finished in 10:28

    Snatch – 20 reps @ 30kg
    C&J – 18 reps @ 35kg
    BS – 15 reps @ 40kg
    Deadlift – 8 reps @ 75kg

    Was lots of fun and harder than I expected. Timed out at 1.8 Tonnes 😉 Finished after the back squats. I think the rep range was good for me, just need to take less rest.

    Snatch @ 25kgs
