Bench Press


2 Bench Press x 6 sets @85% of 1RM

**How to approach the lifts**

* Record each set as 1 of your scores for load

* Have athletes partner up to have a spotter during all lifts.

* If athletes don’t have a Max then have them use a comfortable weight that feels, and looks good for all 6 sets.

* Make Sure athletes are ready to go 5-10 seconds before the start of the next 90 seconds.

Twist and Shout (Time)

For Time:


Clean and Jerks (135/95)



* Target time: 9-11 minutes

* Time cap: 15 minutes


* Stimulus for workout is moderate intensity. Athletes should be working at a steady pace across all movements throughout the workout.

* The gymnastics movements will fly by, grind through the barbell!

* Clean and Jerks: Athletes should select a weight that will allow them to complete 5-8 reps touch and go when fresh but are welcome to use smaller sets or even fast singles during the workout.

*Weight should not be a limiting factor for this movement and should be around 45-50% of athletes 1rm.
