5 Power Clean (135/95lbs)
10 Front Squat
Rest 90 seconds
It is another longish workout today. Some of that time is spent resting, but the workload should take around 15min if you are moving fast.
For everyone, the weight should be light enough so that you can keep moving pretty consistently. The Pullups may slow down in the last few sets.
All other movements should be able to be done unbroken each round.
Score = Total Time
Even though the score is the total time, try to maintain the same time for each round. Rather than gunning the first few rounds and then slowing down. It’s a good skill to have to know how to pace a workout evenly. If anything, the last few rounds can be a little quicker if you have been too conservative, but that would be better than the first two rounds too fast.
The Pullups should be able to be done in 1-2 sets per round.
Fitness: Choose a weight that you can cycle through for all the movements unbroken. Make the Ring Rows challenging for 10 reps.
