"Every functional exercise contains an essential bit of human capacity. Due to strength or injury, often a particular exercise is not immediately possible. In nearly every case what we do is find a method to reduce the load to insignificant levels while preserving precisely the line of action or substitute movements of similar lines of action that will prepare for the missing capacity. Any weightlifting exercise can be done with a broomstick or PVC pipe."
-GREG GLASSMAN, from "A Beginner's Guide to CrossFit"

Notes: This one is going to be a burner! If you're not brand new to this, try to do large UNBROKEN sets. You should choose a weight that you are able to do quite a few without putting the bar down. Even if you are fast doing singles, you are missing several other stimulus factors (talking to myself as well) like grip strength and tolerance as well as general time under tension and barbell endurance capacity. Go into this ready to "get it over with" and not rest or breathe much. 3...2...1...GO!
