STIMULUS

Teams of 3 will work through 3 separate AMRAP 7’s with 3 minutes of rest between
Athletes will split reps up how they see fit, with one person working at a time
The work is set at 50 reps on the first two barbells
The scored portions are total reps completed at the final barbell
Enter separate scores for the bench, front squat, and deadlifts
The front squats come from the ground, not the rack
Use one bar and change weights, but it is ok to have multiple if teammates are using different weights
Athletes should be able to complete the following reps at each barbell within the workout:
1st Bar: 7-10 Reps
2nd Bar: 5-7 Reps
3rd Bar: 3-5 Reps

STRATEGY

Since we stay at the same movement for all 7 minutes, it’s important to pick rep schemes that allow you and the team to come back for a strong set the next time around
A good break-up strategy is one that helps you avoid excess muscle fatigue early
You’ll benefit from switching partner before the bar starts to slow down
If you have to struggle to lock out the weight, it’s too late
It’s not about the size of the set, rather the consistency of all sets
Below are potential break-up strategies from each bar:
1st Bar: 7-10 Reps
2nd Bar: 5-7 Reps
3rd Bar: 3-5 Reps

Bar Crawl (Individual Version) (Time)


For Time:
27 Bench Press (135/95)
27 Front Squats (135/95)
27 Deadlifts (185/135)

Rest 1 Minute

21 Bench Press (155/105)
21 Front Squats (155/105)
21 Deadlifts (225/155)

Rest 1 Minute

15 Bench Press (185/135)
15 Front Squats (185/135)
15 Deadlifts (275/185)

STIMULUS

This is the individual version of the “Bar Crawl” team workout
Unlike the team version, you can set up 3 separate barbells for each station
The Bench Press will come from the rack while the Front Squat and Deadlifts will come from the floor
The score today is the total time including rest
Choose weights that you could complete each station within 3-5 quick sets during the workout

STRATEGY

Just like in the team version of this workout, we want to avoid burning out early on in the sets
With 63 total reps at climbing weights – let’s break these barbell movements up before the bar starts to slow down
If you break before you start to struggle too much, you’ll be able to come back that much stronger and with less rest for the next set
See below for potential break-up strategies for each rep number:

Sets of 27

2 Sets: 15-12
3 Sets: 12-9-6
4 Sets: 8-7-6-6
5 Sets: 7-5-5-5-5
Sets of 21

2 Sets: 12-9
3 Sets: 7-7-7 or 8-7-6
4 Sets: 6-5-5-5
5 Sets: 5-4-4-4-4
Sets of 15

2 Sets: 8-7
3 Sets: 5-5-5 or 6-5-4
