5 Rounds of “Cindy” (5 Pull-Ups + 10 Push Ups + 15 Squats)
3 Rounds of “DT” (12 Deadlifts 155/105 + 9 Hang Power Cleans + 6 Push Jerks)
Scale Pull-Ups to Ring Rows or Jumping Pull-Ups as needed. For “DT,” the shoulder-to-overhead will likely be the limiter. Scale to a weight at which you can do the 6 Jerks unbroken. Consider breaking up the reps like this: DL 11+1, right into the HPC 8+1, and then trying to get through the Jerks unbroken. Don’t pace the row too much and empty the tank on the final 200-250 meters.
