NOTE: “Each year in the United States Navy, a highly qualified and elite cadre of Sailors are selected and promoted to the join the ranks of Chief Petty Officer. Since 1893, “The Chiefs” have been relied upon by subordinates and superiors alike for their personal example, technical expertise and above all, their unique leadership capabilities. As the induction process for newly selected Chief Petty Officers is now underway throughout the US Navy, we thought it appropriate to inaugurate “The Chief” in honor and recognition of all past and present CPOs. Thanks to them and their families for their self-sacrifice, ability to adapt, tireless dedication to mission and devotion to country.”

Box Brief –
“The Chief” is a total of 15min of work made up of work/rest intervals. The 3min intervals are just short enough for the intensity to remain relatively high across the whole time, and the 1min rest, just enough for you to get your heart rate down and go again. The movements are simple, pull, squat, press, and the loading is moderate. On paper it looks pretty harmless, but don’t underestimate how spicy those last two rounds will get. 🙂 Aerobic capacity and stamina are going to be the limiting fitness factors today. Great practise for the Fitness Test Workout ‘Outcast’ next week, where the loading on the Power Cleans is slightly heavier.
