Final time hitting Push Jerk this cycle before we re-test our 5X5.  Today, we’re looking for a heavy set of 5, followed by a heavy set of 4, followed by a heavy set of 3, then a heavy set of 2, and finishing with a heavy single.  Doesn’t have to be a new 1RM, but if you are feeling good and want to go for a new 1RM, have at it!

The LIMFAC for today is likely the Handstand Push Ups.  If they are, look to hit manageable chunks before coming off the wall to rest.  Avoid hitting failure so your rest time is shorter before kicking back up on the wall.

Scaling Options:

No bike -> Row or Ski Erg

HSPUs -> Pike Push ups off box -> Pike Push ups off the floor -> high kneeling DB press

Dubs (Elite 70 per round) -> Dubs in 70 rope contacts -> 70 single unders

Cool Down:

Thread the Needle Stretch – 1 Min per side


Calf Stretch on rig – 1 Min per side
