5 Front squats

Build Up (~5:00)
2 Sets
3 power cleans + 3 front squats (light)

*Take care of any prep needed for part 1.

Metcon (Weight)
Every 2:00 for 10:00 (5 sets)
3 Power Cleans + 3 front squats

*Compare to 4/1/20

This is essentially a challenging build-up for the conditioning section. Be less concerned with loading and focus primarily on mechanics. The first set should be at a lightweight and the final set can be at a challenging load that still allows the entire complex to be completed unbroken. Athletes will then reduce loading for the conditioning. Sets 2 or 3 of this section should be at the anticipated working weight for the conditioning section.

Movement Modifications
Decrease loading as mechanics break down.

Every 2:00 for 10:00 (5 sets)
3 Kneeling jump-ups + max height jump squat

If this cannot be performed complete 3 consecutive max distance broad jumps

Metcon (Time)
For time:
15 – 12 – 9 – 6 – 3
Power cleans (135lbs/95lbs)
Front squats (135lbs/95lbs)

*Compare to 4/1/20

This is intended to be a moderately- loaded and fast-paced workout where unbroken sets can potentially be attempted. The challenge is to complete this workout in under 5:00 while having all athletes finish in under 8:00 is a great goal.

Movement Modifications
Power cleans and front squats
*Use a load that achieves the stimulus of unbroken sets.
