In 20min:
Find your new 5RM Back Squat
You will get to do this every week during this cycle. The goal is to consistently add 5-10lbs each week. Base your increase on how challenging last week was (easy-10lbs, hard-5lbs).
In between sets, work on HS & HSPU variations

Row 1000m or Run 800m or Bike 2000m
30 Squat Cleans – L: 115/75; S: 155/105
Row 1000m or Run 800m or Bike 2000m
*Ideally looking for small, repeatable touch & go sets on the cleans or fast singles, so this weight shouldn’t be a high percentage of your 1RM. Shoot for sub-15min.
