Workouts for the Week: July 9 - July 14

Monday, July 9th


Find a Heavy of the following complex:
1 Power Clean + 1 Split Jerk with a 2 second hold in the catch

*One of my favorite strength days. Keep the clean to a power and really focus on the footwork in the Jerk. Remember, its not how much you can push as it is how fast can you get under it. 

Workout: For Time - 15 minute time cap. Inspired by Street Parking and tested by Nate.

50 Double Unders (2:1 Singles)
10 Clean and Jerks (185/135)
40 Double Unders
8 Clean and Jerks (185/135)
30 Double Unders
6 Clean and Jerks (185/135)
20 Double Unders
4 Clean and Jerks (185/135)
10 Double Unders
2 Clean and Jerks (185/135)

*Workout should be steady throughout…heavy but no failure.  This is a clean and jerk workout…the doubles are an afterthought so don’t waste a lot of time there. Pick up the rope and go!
