STIMULUS

• Positioning is the focus of our opening piece for today

• At lighter percentages of your 1RM Clean, take 7 seconds to reach the top and 7 seconds to lower the bar back down to the floor

• The challenge here isn’t the weights themselves, rather maintaining control of the weights during the slow tempos

• During each 14 second lift, let’s keep the hook grip on to simulate how we would typically clean

• Rest as needed between sets to maintain quality

MOVEMENT FOCUS

• Slowing things down really allows you to feel out a couple key points:

• Lats On: Close the gap between the bar and the body, actively pressing back on the weight during the ascent and descent

• Hips and Shoulders Together: Keep the torso angle the same until the legs straight or the bar is above the knee

MOVEMENT PREP

Set 1: 25% of 1RM Clean

STIMULUS

• Going fast and furious in these quick, well-balanced intervals

• We have a little gymnastics, a litte weightlifitng, and a little work on the Rower

• The small numbers on the three bar movements are designed that you are able to complete them ideally without breaking

• Choose variations on the gymnastics and a weight on the barbell that you can complete unbroken each time

• Looking for each round to take around 2:00-2:30 to complete, giving you 1:30-2:00 of rest

• Record scores for each round, with the final score being the slowest of the 5 intervals

STRATEGY

• We approach the most challenging skill movement of the workout, the bar muscle-up, coming off rest each round and in a very small number

• Shoot for an unbroken set of bar muscle-ups to start each interval

• While you could hold onto the bar after the last muscle-up and go into the first toes to bar, it’s likely best to drop and reset to maintain a rhythm and ensure the 6 reps stay unbroken

• Fight for an unbroken set of 9 reps on the barbell, knowing that this is the last movement before we can get on the bike and just keep moving to the finish

• With the score today being the slowest round, pick a speed from the first round that you think you can replicate

MOVEMENT FOCUS

• Just like our focus in the tempo clean deadlift, let’s aim to keep the hips and shoulders rising together

• The first rep is always the most difficult because there is no momentum

• Look to make the first rep the best rep
