workout of the day

Saturday 030517


Complete three rounds:

Deadlift 3-3-3 reps
30 Sit-ups

Move slowly and deliberately while adding weight to each of the nine deadlift sets.

We were inspired by the abmat technology and tried out the “ab bench” which is a popular plate loaded bench that allows for full range of motion like the “abmat”. The shipped product was so short of our standards for strength and durability, i.e., quality that we commissioned Nick Massman to build an “ab bench” that would meet the technical requirements of the abmat concept but improve on several marked shortcomings. The finished product is heavy duty enough to require wheels to move, can accommodate more load than anyone could lift, uses high density closed cell foam, and exaggerates the lumbar curve to assure full range of motion – full lumbar extension to full flexion.
