Strength Cycle: Cycle 3 – Week 2 of 5

Strength/Skill
In 16min:
Find a new 5RM Back Squat
*We’re retesting our 5RM every Friday. Don’t shoot for the moon. Instead, just look to add 5-10lbs over what you hit last week. We’ll do the same thing every Friday in this cycle. Also, don’t waste all of your energy on 5s as you build up. Hit some 3s, 2s, and even 1s. When that single or double gets a little scary, then belt up and go for the 5.

WOD
3 Rounds
L: 12; Spl: 16; S: 21 Power Snatch – L: 45/35; Spl: 75/55; S: 95/65
L: 12; Spl: 16; S: 21 Pullups
L: 12; Spl: 16; S: 21 Cals on Rower or Bike
Rest 2min
*We want this to be about 2-3min of work and 2min of rest. Snatches and pullups should be unbroken, so modify the weight & reps as needed to make that happen. Then put whatever you have left into the Cal work.

Cooldown
Happy Baby (Lower Back Stretch)
