Warm-up with those crazy 6 amer's.

Lynne is your classic "push-pull" workout.  These two movements prove to be a dynamic combo each and every time we complete this workout.  Yet despite the pain, the end result is still exactly what we're after: measurable, observable, and repeatable.  After tackling Lynne for the first time, you're left with a score and a specific amount of work that you've completed.  The question is, are you going to be fitter the second time around?  The load hasn't changed much (your body weight) and the distance you are moving the load is the same (unless you grew or shrunk).  The only thing that may change… is your ability to do work.  Have you increased your work capacity lately?

  5. derek :

    increased my bench weight today by 5lbs from the last time we did Lynn in the strength class a few weeks back used the purple band this time instead of no band but my pull ups were better and I added ten reps to my total, even with using the band I felt that the pullups gave me a better workout today increasing my work capacity on each set..that was the point right? good! fun stuff

  6. Luke :

    Did chest to bar pull-ups today, so I can’t compare this to the last time I did Lynne, except for the fact that, like usual, I could barely grip my steering wheel on the way home. Word.

  7. Welcome new foundations peeps!!!
    Congrats Derek! You’ve been tearing it UP lately. Way to go!
