Workout of the Day
A) Paused Clean Deadlift + High Hang Clean
2 x (1+3) – light
2 x (1+2) – medium
2 x (1+1) – medium to heavy
*Pause for 1 full second with the plates 1″ off the floor before continuing to stand.
*High Hang = upper thigh. The purpose of the high hang clean is to force an extremely aggressive final extension in the pull and to practice the proper position and balance at this stage of the lift. It will also help improve the pull under the bar due to the limited ability of the athlete to accelerate and elevate the bar first.
*Rest as needed between these 6 sets as you work up in weight. Prioritize on power, speed, and accuracy today over load.
B) Paused Front Squat + Front Squat
3 x (3+3)
*Pause for 1 full second at the bottom of your full depth front squat.
*This is 3 sets of 6 reps, where you will pause for the first 3 reps of each set and then continue without the pause.
*Find a weight that you feel rock solid in your form, nothing more than RPE 7/10.
TABATA mash up
A. kipping toes to bar
B. plate hops, as fast as possible
Tabata is 8 rounds. 20 sec of work, 10 sec of rest.
Alternate movements each interval for 4 each, 8 total.
Score is total reps achieved in the 8 rounds.
Use a 10 or 25# plate on the floor (very low), and go for speed and accuracy. Start with feet outside the plate and jump in and out as fast as you can. If you need a target, aim for 30+ reps in 20 seconds each round!
