Complete the Burgener Warmup for 3 rounds BEFORE class begins.  During the skill segment, perform 5 rounds of the “Shankle Complex” – video below.  This is done at a light weight.  Use no more than 40% of your Clean 1RM.

For the strength segment, you will establish a 1RM Press for the day.  Follow the reps and % progression up to 90% and then take 2-3 attempts at a 1RM.  Failing is ok, but know your capacity and don’t be stupid. 

The conditioning workout has a time cap of 7 minutes…work fast!  Perform your burpees directly under a pullup bar that is roughly 6″ above your standing outstretched arm.  At the jump of each burpee, grab the bar and perform a one toes to bar rep.  Scale to knees to elbows or knees as high as you can.      

ENDURANCE WORKOUT tonight at 6pm!  Bring a stopwatch!

    Shankle Complex as assigned at 80#. Deadlifts as assigned: 5 @ 190#, 5 @ 230#, 3 @305#, 2 @ 345# Was aggressive and made 2 attempts at 390# which would have been a new 1RM. Wasn't meant to be. Barely lifted it higher than my ankles. No excuse, but my legs are still creaky from 13.3. METCON: 6:45 Thrilled to finish this in the time allotted and actually touched my toes to the bars for all 30 reps!
