Alexander the Great

Back Squat (100 lbs)
Behind the neck push or split jerk (100 lbs)
Thruster (2 x 25 lb DBs)

Rounds of 10, 9, 8...1

Jack 12:42
Alex (65) (20) 12:42
Eugene 14:05
Lance 14:39

The scraped off skin on the back of my neck over the T-1 spinal bump is a really terrific indicator that you should use a bar with no center knurling for this. Lowering the bar from overhead after each push jerk got to be hard to steer around that bump after a few rounds.
This workout is in counterpoint to Linda which has the pulling lifts of the deadlift and the clean and I made it up to avoid pulling which hurst Lance's bicep lately.

Is that 100 pounds or 100 reps? How many rounds? Just curious.
