Strength Cycle: Post-Open Cycle 2 – Week 4
2 Squat Clean and Split Jerk @ 75%+ of Clean Complex
*Similar weight to last week, but with an added technical component of the Squat & Split.
12-20 Single-Leg KB/DB RDL – split reps b/t legs
*Place the KB/DB in whichever hand allows you to best control the movement, but we’d prefer to see it in the hand opposite whichever foot is staying on the ground. Keep a soft bend in your knee, grip the KB/DB hard, keep your back straight, and push your hips back until the KB/DB is around shin level, then fire up.
10 Clean & Jerks – L: 105/70; S: 135/95
*Holy GRIP. Fast, efficient singles are the way to go on the barbell. For the T2B, breaking up early is smart to stay moving, and whether that break up is 2 or 3 sets depends on you. Time domain sub-10min.
