Post Jerk Loads and Workout Rounds Completed Without Interruption to Comments
Complete the Strength & Conditioning Warmup for 3 rounds BEFORE class begins. Then, you will establish a max set of  Ring dips.  Take no more than three attempts to do it.  Full extension at the bottom and chin over the bar on top.  If you don’t have ring dips, use the following scaling sequence and determine the same:  pushups – ring pushups – bar dips – ring dips.

For the strength segment, for the Push/Split Jerk follow the reps and % progression up to 4 singles at 70% 1RM.  You can work quickly through the warmups, but rest roughly 3-4 minutes between the 3 work sets.  These are going to be relatively light and you can choose which Jerk variation to use.  Just stick with it the whole time.  Pay close attention to good footwork (landing positions) and stick the landing hard.

For the conditioning workout, you’ll have to work fast to get under the time cap.  Note that these are Russian KB Swings.  The bell doesn’t need to be any higher than your chest at full extension. 

ENDURANCE WORKOUT tonight at 6pm!
