Push Jerk: 1×1

**How to approach the lifts**

– Work up to a heavy single. Go off of feel! If your body is tired, stay at lower percentages. If you feel ok, go up each set.

– Try and reach a heavy single in 6-8 working sets (not including light warm up sets).

– Record each set as 1 of your scores for load

20sec. Assault Bike

2 Hanging Knee Raises + 2 Toes to Bar

2 Dumbbell Thrusters (practice the squat clean)

4 Front Lack Walking Lunge Steps (2 each leg)

**3. Strength Prep**

– Body will be warm after the workout. While explaining the strength have athletes start getting the bars ready and progress through the warm-up while adding weight to each set:

– The thruster already has primed the press so drop weight slightly and have the athletes get comfortable with a few sets of dropping underneath the bar and clean up the footwork.
