Post Clean Loads and Workout Time to Comments
For the strength segment, first perform 5 sets of double rep Hang Cleans from above the knee at roughly 85% of your full Clean 1RM.  Once you’ve completed these sets, keep the same load perform 8 reps of a Clean and Jerk from the floor.  Receive the bar in a full front squat on all reps. These are for technique, rather than for PRs.  In fact, you should not be missing many reps due to heavy load.  Rest roughly 1-2 minutes between attempts. 

For the conditioning workout, hold the plate with both arms fully locked out overhead.  Back knee should make contact with the floor.  Be sure to take a big step with the front foot and plant your heel on the floor.  Knee should not go too far past the toe, if at all.

    Hang Cleans and Clean and Jerks all at 135#. Short of the prescribed 85%, but it was the right weight to maintain form. METCON Overhead Lunges - 1st round 45#, then scaled at 35# 4 rounds even. Those overhead lunges HURT! ;-)
