-Increasing by 3% across all lifts from last week
-All percentages are based off your 5-Rep Heavy Back Squat
-Rest as needed between sets and three minutes after sets 3 and 6
-We’ll re-test our 5-Rep Back Squat next week
Power Clean and Jerk
Every 2 Minutes x 5 Sets:
3 Power Cleans
1 Split Jerk
Set 1: 65% of 1RM Clean & Jerk
Set 2: 70% of 1RM Clean & Jerk
Sets 3-5: Build to a Heavy Complex
-Before we build to a heavy complex, we’ll work some percentages of our 1RM Clean and Jerk
-The 3 power cleans do not have to be completed unbroken – you can drop after each rep
-Rounds begin every 2 minutes (0-2-4-6-8)
-Your score for the day is the heaviest load successfully lifted
20 Alternating Pistols
10 Power Cleans (165/115)
20 Box Jump Overs (24″/20″)
10 Push Jerks (165/115)
-“Air Fryer” alternates gymnastic and weightlifting movements. Single barbell.
-Choose a weight on the barbell that you could cycle for upwards of 15+ reps unbroken when fresh.
-Within the workout, this should be a weight that you can complete ‘touch and go’ sets, even though singles may be your strategy.
-We expect the 3 rounds to take somewhere in the 5-10 minute range to complete.
-Although the pistols may catch the eye first, the box jumps may be an even bigger separator for athletes. Slow is smooth, smooth is fast on the pistols. Don’t look to win (or lose) the workout here.
-Transitions will be a focus, with a total of 12 stations we’ll be working at. How fast we pick up the barbell, and how fast we start that first gymnastic rep will add up quick.
-Power cleans, based on level, can be done in sets or even fast singles. Aim here is consistency across the three rounds, at a level we can move immediately into fast box jump overs. Don’t crush ourselves here and have to slow on the box.
-Push jerks.. the opposite. Push here for large sets, if not unbroken, knowing that the following pistols are less metabolic/demanding on the CNS.
Alternating On the Minute x 10 (5 Rounds):
Minute 1: 18/14 Calorie Ski Erg
Minute 2: 30′ Hand Over Hand Rope Pull
This is a repeat effort from December 10.
-Alternating between some machine conditioning and neutral grip upper body pulling
-For the Hand Over Hand Rope Pulls, attach a long rope to a sled 30 feet away and pull it towards you
-Use the same weight for all 5 rounds – choosing a moderate load that you can complete the movement in 30 seconds or less
-The Ski Erg is meant to be completed at a fairly strong pace to get the work done within the minute
-These are the Cals/Hour you need to hold to complete the 18/14 calories in less than 60 seconds:
-18 Calories: ~1100 Cal/Hr
-14 Calories: ~900 Cal/Hr
-See below for movement subs for the ski erg and rope pulls
