GOOO Viney!!  Strong work on your Push Up Challenge to raise awareness about Veteran’s suicide.

WOD:

12 Deadlift (115/75lbs)
9 Hang Power Clean
6 Push Press
AMRAP 15min

A lighter ‘DT-ish’ workout. Same reps, but as an AMRAP rather than rounds. The goal would be for people to get more than the regular 5 rounds that is usually prescribed.

Barbell Complexes are usually pretty painful and make people want to stop or rest a lot. Your focus should be on doing a few more reps every time you ‘want’ to put the bar down. The weight should never feel heavy enough that doing a couple more reps will be impossible. It is more of a mental and breathing limitation at that point, so try hard to power through with mental toughness.
