STIMULUS and GOALS

How to Pace: Grind. This workout hurts. Don’t go out too hot. Maintain a consistent pace, knowing the clean and jerks are going to feel heavy!

How it should Feel: Gassy. This workout burns the lungs and legs like no other! Make sure you are good and warmed up before you start this workout. If you push this workout right, then you will be all out of breath by the end!

WORKOUT STRATEGY & FLOW

Box jumps: all about consistency. No crazy pace here, but move through these smooth each set.

Clean and jerks: stay calm on these clean and jerks. I recommend breaking up the first bar even though it’s light, in preparation for the later bars. By the time you get to 185/115, we recommend all singles.

Pistols: similar to box jumps, aim for consistency here. Your quads will be on fire. Don’t waste any reps and hit the standard each time.
