WOD:

3 Rounds:

20 Hang Power Cleans (95/65)

20 Front Squats (95/65)

20 Push Press (95/65)

Time Cap: 15 Min

 

With the weight being lighter, the ultimate goal would be to do each section unbroken.  If that isn’t in the cards for you, then shoot to break up into chunks of 10 reps.  Try to stick with that throughout, but if fatigue kicks in, drop to manageable chunks, but don’t rest too long!

 

Scaling Options:

Bar weight -> 75/55 -> As needed

Barbell forearm roll out – 1 Min per side
