Impact/Focus: Clean & Jerks + Barbell Cycling
Warm-up sets and reps building to a starting weight of 50-60% by moving from an empty barbell through two light to moderate weight sets of 2-3 reps each.

6 Rounds on the :90 seconds of

Clean & Jerk x 2,2,2 | 1,1,1

Then… Drop to a Met Con appropriate or multiple rep capable weight and complete the following;

4 Rounds of (:30 work x :90 rest)

Clean & Jerk x Max Reps


  • Beginning weights @50% to 60% of a Push Jerk or Clean & Jerk 1rm.
  • Athletes confident in the lifts today may climb across sets and reps seeking and destroying a new one rep record if they so desire.
  • Emphasis on developing stamina and strength in anticipation of personal rep record tests in the future; climb each set or two.
  • Learning, movement efficiency, work output & barbell cycling priorities should work all sets and reps at the same weight across; refining technique(s) and proficiency as able throughout.
