Single Arm Dumbell Press (x 5-6/arm)

A. Single arm KB press x 5-6/arm + single arm front rack lunges x 5-6

Rest 30-60 seconds

B. Strict pull-ups x 3-6 @ 2X22

Rest as needed

*Notes: This is a re-test of a Behemoth Benchmark workout. Go back to previous scores to see the details of how one can improve. Weight should feel like a 2/10 scale of difficutly. Ultimately, you should be using a weight that you could do at least the first round unbroken. Let your thruster weight dictate loading here. One weight used for the entire workout.
