Workout of the Day
1 Power Clean
This workout was part of the CrossFit Open in 2011 however the cleans were full squat cleans. The competition loads for 11.3 were 165/105 and should be loads that challenge and slow you down, but still allow you to perform the movement correctly and consistently. In the classic version, world class athletes were performing 35-45 Rounds. Aim for a weight that will get you roughly 20-25 reps. Remember, 1 power clean + 1 Jerk = 1 round. If you miss a jerk, you’ll have to clean the bar again however that rep won’t count towards your score.
A1: DB Bench Press
A2: Double Kettlebell Front Rack Carry
A3: Wide Grip Ring Row
Work up through progressively challenging sets of each exercise. You first set should be more of a warm-up/primer set and then each subsequent set becoming a little more challenging than the last. For the Wide Grip Ring Rows, the intention is to work your Upper back more than your lats, so be sure to flare your elbows out, think about spreading the rings at the top and use a more upright angle then you would for a traditional ring row.
