Second time hitting our Back Squats this cycle.  The aim with the 3X5 week is, we are 2 less sets than the previous time we hit these.  So, I want to have an extra warm-up set or two and then aim to go heavier on this set than I did on set 3 of the 5X5 week.  This way we push to finish even heavier than the last set of 5X5 week.


10 Rounds For Time:

9 Wall Balls (20/14)

6 Toe2Bar

3 Power Cleans (165/115)


18 Min Time Cap

In anticipation of some rep schemes, movement styles we may see, wanted to make Friday a little fun and put in something that, if I was programming the Open, might show up in an Open WOD.  If you do the quick math, the goal should be to keep each round around the 1:30-1:40 range.  This means you’re gonna need to keep moving to make it under the cap.  Limit rest to transition from movement to movement, and go unbroken with whatever movement you are in.  Push for it!

Scaling Options:

MB weight -> 14/10 -> as needed

Toe2Bar -> Alt Single Leg Toe2Bar -> kipping knee raise -> strict knee raise

Bar weight -> 135/95 -> as needed

Cool Down:

Banded hamstring stretch – 1 min per side


Cobra – 2 Min
