WOD:

Clean and jerk for load

Take 4-5 attempts at your 1 Rep Max
Make sure you are fully recovering between attempts.

1 mile run for time

Day 8 of the Fitness Testing Series. Nearly there! We like to test the Clean and Jerk over the Snatch as technically, it is a little bit more attainable than the Snatch. You will usually see improvement in this lift a lot quicker than the Snatch. This doesn’t mean it is a better test of strength, power, or coordination!  Any Clean and Jerk is acceptable, but you should use the most efficient form for you. For most, this is going to be a squat clean + a split jerk.

The 1mile run is one of the most painful distances to run if you are doing it with intensity! Right at your anaerobic threshold,  it’s a battle between wanting to slow down because of the pain, or being able to maintain a good pace for the whole 1 mile and pushing through that discomfort. This differs to a CrossFit workout where you have more of an option to rest between movements or rounds.  Think MENTAL TOUGHNESS for this one!
