This classic benchmark is a LOT of fun, but will put you through the paces.  The goal is to go unbroken each round, but be smart, especially on the bench press.  If fatigue is setting in and you are near failure, rack the bar and recover before continuing.  Yes, this is for time, but the body will recover faster if you break prior to hitting failure than if you fail out on a rep. And yes, the cleans are meant to be squat cleans.
