Ah, a nice ascending ladder AMRAP to finish off your week!  Every round, you will in crease the rep count per movement by one rep. As you get into the higher numbers, the reps will get spicy, but aim to go unbroken each time you start a movement. Today, we want you to use the DB Hang Power Clean version where the DBs stay outside of the legs.  Get a good hinge of the hips in the hang and then violently extend the hips as your shrug and throw the elbows in front of the DBs (as seen in the video above). For the Devil’s Press, as the reps go up, find a good rhythm to keep moving through them.  And for the Shoulder to OH, you can use any method (press, push press, push jerk, split jerk) as long as you finish with the DBs locked out overhead and the hips and knees fully locked out.

Scaling Options:

DB weight -> 35/25 -> as needed

Cool Down:

Thread the Needle Hold – 1 Min per side


Scorpion Hold – 1 Min per side
