Little fun pressing/receiving work to start off. For the Single Arm dumbbell Push Jerk – Set-up:
Feet under hips/Glutes and abs tightened/dumbbell resting on shoulder/Elbow in front of body Execution: Dip/Push knees forward and out/Torso stays vertical/Heels down/Quickly extend at the hips and knees/Push under the dumbbell/Receive the bar in a Single Arm Partial Overhead Squat/Stand with load overhead to the finish position.  Go by feel on the weight jumps. Focus more on explosively opening the hips to move the weight and punching to land with arms extended instead of muscling the DB up



18 Min AMRAP:

60′ Double KB Front Rack Walking Lunge (53/35)

(3 burpee penalty per drop during lunge)

5 KB Hang Snatch per arm (53/35)

Scaling Options:

KB weight -> 35/23 -> as needed

Cool Down:

Banded OH stretch – 2 Min per side


Couch Stretch –2 Min per side
