Last run of our Clean Complex this strength cycle before we re-test our C&J 1RM.  Remember, the goal of this is to get you not only used to depending on explosive hip extension to move the weight, but the hang squat clean will force you to get SPEED under the bar to catch it at the bottom of the Clean.  The more effective we get with that piece, the more weight you can move in a Squat Clean (less distance to cover than a Power Clean).  Our reps stay the same as last time, but the %s increase, so keep that grip!



KB Sumo Deadlift High Pull (70/53)

Double Unders

Video courtesy of Train FTW. Today’s WOD should be a relatively fast WOD.  But, don’t trade speed for bad form on the Sumo Deadlift High Pulls.  Maintain a flat back throughout, use your hips to generate that force to move the KB upwards, and don’t slam back down to the ground on the way down.

KB weight -> 53/35 -> as needed
