The bar facing burpees can be scaled to stepover or no step/jump if need be. The 400’s will also add up; these can turn into 200’s if they need to. No walking today…have to keep it at least a jog.

Workout: "Jump City" - For Time - Courtesy of Bergeron

21 Hang Power Cleans (135/95)

20 Double Unders (160 singles)
9 Hang Power Cleans (135/95)
*Pacing early is important. We want to peak as the workout is near the end. Know what will slow you down and scale back in those areas if you need to. Consider scaling to a shorter run, single unders, or lighter cleans?
Friday, August 10th
Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible in 12 Minutes
9 Toes to Bar (knee tucks)
6 Box Jumps (30/24)
3 Squat Snatch (135/95)
*Get to the top shelf on the box jumps today. As you’ve heard me say before these should not be a “Jesus-take-the-wheel-I-hope-I-make-it-up-there" kind of box jump. You should be jumping to something we can do repetitively with confidence. These snatches should also not look like 1 rep max attempts; keep them smooth and consistent throughout the 12 minutes.

Hero Workout - “Saman”
This workout is in honor of retired Thai Navy SEAL and Petty Office First Class Saman Kunan.
Khun Saman died while diving through a flooded cave (Tham Luang) supplying air tanks to a group of 12 young students and their coach who were trapped 3.2 kilometers into the flooded cave. He successfully delivered the tanks, but died on the return dive on July 6.
Khun Saman was 38 years old, and volunteered for the mission to rescue the boys. The rescue involved dozens of people from many different countries, with a very dangerous and complex rescue into a flooded cave with extremely narrow passages.
All of the children and their coach were successfully rescued.
Khun Saman’s widow, Waleeporn Kunan told the BBC "Saman once said we never knew when we would die. We can't control that, so we need to cherish every day.”
Workout: "Saman" - 8 Rounds For Time (Solo or With a Partner)
13 Deadlifts (185/125)
17 Wall Balls
*While we are honoring a hero we still need to be smart and safe. Consider partnering up for this hero workout. 40-45min Time Cap. Puts all the first world complaining we do in perspective. Godspeed.
