How bout dat Sweaty Saturday Partner Slog, eh?

Well here’s what could be considered (in many ways) as the opposite of that slog. We’ll start the week with a 3/2/1 barbell complex and then tackle a 21-15-9 sprint couplet that will make even the fastest of us wish the barbell were heavier so we had an excuse to slow down. This flavor of light loading and short time domain reminds me a little of the feeling of running an “all out” 800 meters on the track. Good times.


WOD For 01-07-18:

3 Power Cleans + 2 Push Presses + 1 Push Jerk:

15 Minutes to Build to a Top Set

*Touch-and-go is not required for the power cleans but is encouraged for as long as possible with good technique.


For Time:


Power Cleans @ 95/65 lbs

Push Presses @ 95/65 lbs

*No rack, use the same barbell (yes, someone will inevitably ask).

*Push jerks are not allowed (AKA no re-bending of the legs with the barbell overhead). Here’s a hint… if it feels easy (even if you’re a competitor) you’re probably push jerking.

*Can you hold on to the bar longer than you want to (with good technique of course) and push the pace?
