We need to get into the work quickly today.  We’re going to be doing either the CrossFit or powerlifting total.  Given that we will have only the one hour class to warmup and then complete three lifts as heavy as possible we need to ensure that we’re fully warm and choosing appropriate numbers for our attempts.

At powerlifting competitions you have three attempts at each of the lifts to get the heaviest weight possible.  However you’re allowed to warmup as much (or as little) as you’d like backstage.  That being said you need to use your time judiciously and at the same time make sure that you’re building the weight intelligently.  You will have three attempts for each lift – but you will be allowed to warmup and test weight before (and between if you’d like) attempts.  I would recommend choosing your weights before starting.  At powerlifting competitions, after completing a lift you have one minute to submit your next attempt weight.  We won’t be adhering to that rule.

So please make sure you have a plan before starting and keep in mind that we have only the hour class to complete all three lifts.  We are going to be really strict on the rules today – primarily on the squat depth.  Love that barbell!

I don’t know what power abs would be if that term actually existed outside the world of fitness magazines.  I do know that working on the L-sit is a sure fire way to develop strength and control through your abs (including your hips).  Once you can lock out with straight legs and hold an L-sit at parallel or above for a minute or more every other form of ab work will seem easy.

L-sits are difficult but well worth the effort
