Post Bench Loads and KB Rounds Completed to Comments
Complete the Strength & Conditioning Warmup for 3 rounds BEFORE class begins.  During the skill segment, perform 3 sets of Deadhang pullups. Determine the number of reps for each round by taking 60% of your 1 set max.  Rest 2-3 minutes between sets.  Follow this progression scale if you don’t have Deadhang Pullups:  Barbell inverted rows – Ring rows – Barbell/ring rows with weighted vest/chains – Single-arm ring rows – Pullups.

For the strength segment, follow the warmup progression and then complete 3 sets of 3 reps at 80% 1RM.  Rest 2-3 minutes between work sets.  Your grip should be no wider than index finger on the inner knurling of the bar. The entire strength segment shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes.  Work quickly through the three warmup sets so you can maximize rest time during the 3 work sets.

For the conditioning workout, perform 1 KB Snatch on each arm the first minute, 2 each arm the 2nd minute, etc.  If you fail to complete a full round before time is up, then start back at 1 until time expires.
