B: Warm-up (No Measure)

Front Rack Stretch – 1:00

Laying on your chest, place our elbows out in front, arms bent at 90 degrees. The goal is to close the gap between the armpits and the floor, which will stretch the lats, shoulders, and triceps.

Wrist Stretch – 1:00

From hands and knees position, place palms on the ground with fingertips facing towards you. With elbows locked, actively rock back and forth through range of motion to feel the stretch in the wrist. After 30 seconds, reverse hands by facing fingertips away from the body and repeat active stretching for final 30 seconds.

Warrior Squats – 10 Repetitions

With the barbell on the ground directly in front of you, squat down and place one hand on. Keeping that elbow locked out and your chest tall, reach with the opposite hand overhead, focusing on rotating the shoulders and upper back (thoracic). Look towards the fingertips, pause for a moment, and then change arms. A reach with both arms counts as a single repetition. Rest as needed to accomplish the 10 repetitions.

D: Warm-up (No Measure)

Touching all three weights for practice rounds today, with a short transition between to change out weight. Great opportunity to confirm weights for each round, evaluate movement patterns, and iron out strategy on the barbell.

First Weight:

3 Calorie Row

3 Power Cleans

3 Front Squats

3 Push Jerks

_

Second Weight:

2 Calorie Row

2 Power Cleans

2 Front Squats

2 Push Jerks

_

Third Weight:

1 Calorie Row

1 Power Clean

1 Front Squat

1 Push Jerk

Have athletes reset barbells to opening weights, stacking extra bumpers out of the way of potential dropping barbells.

WOD Strategy:

Within these short intervals, we can look to have more time to work through the barbell the heavier it gets. Depending on what time the athletes get back to their bar will also determine their strategy. If they are strong with this complex or short on time, going touch and go on the power cleans might get them their best possible score. For much of the group, three quick singles on the power cleans followed by 3 unbroken front squats and 3 unbroken push jerks will be much more sustainable. Striving for consistent movement, minimizing the amount of time the bar spends on the ground.

With the Push Jerk being the most challenging movement of the three and also the biggest limiting factor, choosing a weight that athletes could do 20+ repetitions, 15+ repetitions, and 10+ repetitions respectively when totally fresh will help ensure the proper stimulus for the workout.

Run groups on separate 5 minute intervals if necessary. The third power clean may not be squat cleaned as the first front squat repetition. Athletes must stand to full extension after their last power clean before beginning the front squats.
