Video courtesy of Untamed Strength. Last run through of Snatch Grip Deadlifts this cycle before we re-test our 5X5. Our goal is to find a heavy single for the day, but don’t let the back round just to get super heavy. By now, you should feel much more stable on that first pull on the Snatch. Continue to re-set your hips every rep to make the lift perfect.
7 Power Clean & Jerk @ 50% of C&J 1RM
14 Burpee Over Bar
Video courtesy of Misfit Athletics. Some good tips on cycling the Clean & Jerks.The weight in today’s WOD should allow you to cycle the C&Js unbroken. The quick you get through those, the quicker you get back to the Burpee over bar (which can be bar facing, or parallel to the bar).
Bar weight -> 40% of C&J 1RM -> something you can do 7 unbroken C&Js with
Burpee Over Bar -> Burpee-step-over-bar
