Load : Choice

For the Pause Clean, we are looking to hold positions below the knee for 2s then explode through the hips to the catch position. We are looking for a squat clean today as the emphasis is on technique. We want to hit full extension before pulling the bar back down into the front rack position as we descend into the Front Squat. We will then hit a quality split jerk with the focus on dropping the back knee and keeping the hips underneath the torso and barbell to create a solid base position in the catch.

9 Deadlifts 315/205lb, (143/93kg)

Score: Slowest Set

Primary Objective: Unbroken Clean and Jerks

Secondary Objective: Consistent set times

Today, aim to challenge yourself on completing each set as quickly as possible. The primary objective is to complete the Clean and Jerks unbroken, so select a load that is going to allow for this. The volume is low for this workout, we know this and you should be getting a lot of rest. But with that in mind, you should also be challenging yourself to push the pace each interval and in doing this, it makes you want to need the rest. A set should take you no longer than 3:00 minutes to complete. During all of these movements, focus on your breathing and ensuring you have clean reps. One thing to remember also is that on the Lateral Box Jump Overs, you must step-down each rep.

RPE: 9/10

Stimulus: Anaerobic / Grip
