Strength Cycle: Post-Open Cycle – Week 7
L: 2 Squat Clean – add some weight from two weeks ago, but focus on moving well
S: 1 Squat Clean @ 90+%
*If you’re not coming to the gym tomorrow, build to a near 1RM. But, if you’re coming tomorrow (and maxing out your 1RM Back Squat), you might want to hold a little back today.
40 1-Arm Hang DB Clean and Jerk – L: 30/20; S: 50/35
30 Push Press – 115/75 (S: HSPU)
20 Alternating DB Snatch (S: Squat Snatch)
*Cap = 14min. This chipper ends on a very challenging DB movement. Aim to move cleanly, and execute those snatches well, not just fast. It’s ok to slow down at this point and work on this very complex movement while under fatigue. Your arms are definitely going to be blown out by the time you get there.
