Clean, Press, Jerk and Jerk

Hope everyone enjoyed the gorgeous, yet cold, weather this weekend. Now it's time to start off the week with something a little bit different. Warm-up: 5 minutes of 1 wall-ball, 1 burpee, 2 wallballs, 2 burpees, 3 wallballs, 3 burpees... go as high as you can in the alloted time. Technique/Workout: Warm up the lifts that follow as needed. Perform the following sequence without putting the bar down. Power clean from ground, push-press, push-jerk, and split-jerk. Repeat this sequence at least five times taking adequate breaks in between sets. Your score is your maximum weight attained without failure. A couple of points to keep in mind, yes we are trying to go heavy but not at the risk of injury or sacrificing good technique. Now I couldn't resist a little bit of holiday fun. Keeping in mind with one of my favorite carols may I present the first day of Christmas, also known as a Partridge in a Pear Tree. 12 Days of Christmas -Kermit
