Daily Mindset
"Comparison is the death of joy." -Mark Twain
We are indeed out to destroy someone’s standards. Our own, of yesterday.
The opposite of comparison isn’t forfeit, failure, or complacency. It’s participation. It’s the act of joining arms with other like-minded individuals in the pursuit of our own next best version.

Teach / Specific Prep
[22:00 – 30:00] ASSAULT BIKE – Finish the Drive
The theme on all of our movements today will be to finish the drive! On the bike, we get the most out of the legs when the seat is positioned at the right height. Too low and we’re not able to fully extend the legs. Too high and we come up empty at the bottom of each rotation. Finding a position where there is just a slight knee bend in the bottom allows for the best possible leg drive. The knee will be slightly bent with the ball of the foot on the pedals, but if you dropped the heel down, the leg would straighten. Mess around with the seat beforehand to find the ideal positioning.
Movement Prep
Establish Seat Height
20s Moderate Bike

The box step-up is all about the leg drive. With added weight on top of our weight only being moved by one leg, we have to drive hard. Look to have the whole foot on the box to start out so we can use the most muscle possible. Secondly, make sure that you continue to push down aggressively until the leg and hips are fully extended. We want to avoid making contact with the ""off foot"" until the ""working leg"" has finished the drive. This should be a single leg movement, not a double leg. Make sure you have a weight and height that allows for this.
Movement Prep
10 Box Step-ups (5 Each Side with No Weight)
10 Single Dumbbell Box Step-ups (5 Each Side with Lighter Weight)

POWER CLEANS – Finish the Drive
On the power clean, we want to completely finish the drive up before we start getting under the weight. Reaching triple extension on every rep helps us get more elevation on the bar. To practice this, we’ll use a movement called the Muscle Clean that involves not "re-bending" to receive the weight in the front rack. Check out the Daily Video for more on this teaching point.

• This should be a challenging weight, but one that allows for at least 10 reps at a time (3 sets total)
• Alternate legs every rep for a total of 15 each side
• Finish on top of the box with the body at full extension

• Choose a weight here that you could could cycle for 12+ unbroken reps when fresh
• Within the workout today, we’re looking for very fast singles or quick sets
• To put a number to it, this should be a station you can finish in about 3 minutes (10 reps on the minute)
