I was waiting eagerly for these jerks today. Some oly complex, then strength in the form of front squats, and a quick intense conditioning piece to burst my lungs. In the evening Finland is playing against USA in ice hockey world championships, it's gonna be a blast!
- Every 2:00, for 10 minutes
- 1 clean + 3 split jerks @ 80kg across
- Front squat 5-5-5-5 (100, 110, 115, 120kg. Last set was 4 reps)
Metcon. Time, 5.11
- 5 rounds of:
- 7 hang power clean @ 60kg
- 10 burpees
This was intense. This really got to my upper body. It was under tension all the time. Plus respiration was also intense all the time. Burpees always seal the deal for heavy sweating and breathing. Cleans got also a lot harder than I thought but it was the combination of these movements. Very good stuff!
