Set only counts if all the reps are completed under 1:00. Dropping between reps is OK but hold yourself accountable to the timeframe.

Push and Pull.

Today’s session includes some weightlifting movements and some body weight movements. Notice that the pull of the power cleans compliments the push of the ring dips. This balance is important for us to be mindful of. Too much of one or another can hinder our progress. Understand that this balance is a big picture consideration, versus days where we only pull or do multiple movements that would be considered a pull. These days are valuable as well, but overall we like to strike that balance. 

When adding in some of your extra open gym work, be sure to consider what went on during that days workout. If there was overwhelmingly more of a type of movement, say lots of overhead pressing, it’s probably not the best idea to do a bunch of bench and dumbbell presses during open gym. Looking at the big picture of all the training you’re doing in and out of the gym and adjusting accordingly is important to not only your progress but to you remaining healthy as well. Confused? Hit up a coach, that’s what we’re here for!
