Post Deadlift Loads and Workout Time to Comments
Complete the Strength & Conditioning Warmup for 3 rounds BEFORE class begins.  During the skill segment, perform 1 HPC and 1 full Clean each minute.  Use 35% of your Clean 1RM.  This is for technique!  Do not go over 40%.   

For the strength segment, follow the warmup progression and then complete 3 sets of 4 reps at 75% 1RM.  Rest 2-3 minutes between work sets.  The entire strength segment shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes. 

For the conditioning workout, use and carry the same med ball for the entire workout.  Do your burpees with the medicine ball (see video below).  Be careful to not knock the wind out of yourself 🙂  Hold the ball across your chest (or over your head for more difficulty) for the situps.  You may carry the ball anyway you choose for each 200m run.  Note that it is a total of 1800m of running (600m total each round).

We are putting together new PR/Ranking Boards!
