Our pushing movement for this cycle will be the Push Jerk. Our goal with the Jerk is to increase the amount of weight we can successfully get overhead. Statistically, you should get a good 30% more weight in a Push Jerk than you would from a Push Jerk. Big key is once you extend the hips, PUNCH with the arms as you land in soft knee.
7 Dual KB Clean & Jerks (55/35)
14 Burpee over KBs
28 Double Unders
Time Cap: 12 Min

In today’s WOD, the first two pieces should really get the heart rate up. Your goal during the double unders is to slow your heart rate down just a bit, so focus on a steady rhythm in the dubs rather than trying to race through them. Remember, smooth is fast…
KB weight -> 35/25 -> as needed
