85%, 90%, 94%, 97%, 100%… 105%
The pull from the floor should be purposeful and balanced, with your weight balanced over mid-foot. Aim to make 3-5 reps above 85%, more if you’re feeling good. If you have a miss, you get another shot at it. Another miss means take a few lbs off. This is a testing day. If you’re feeling good, then go for it! If not, then get a few heavy reps in and live to snatch another day. In either case, end on a make.

4 Rounds Not for Time:
100′ ea Single-Arm Farmer Carry, as heavy as possible
Max Unbroken Ring Dips
Scale the dips to the Matador or to Push-Ups as needed. You should be able to do a set of at least 8 reps to start out.
