Context: Practice – Push yourself to go ‘higher’ and ‘heavier’ than you might normally go (at least for the first round or two).
Dynamic Warm Up Option: 200m run with medball or 2 min jump rope, then 3 rounds of 8 squat jumps, 8 push-ups, 5 deadbug extensions (each side), 5 Spiderman lunges (each side). Then 5,4,3,2,1 of each with an empty bar: deadlift, hang power clean, front squat, push press, back squat
Mobility/Activation/Prehab: hip
Skill Practice: Spend 10 minutes working up to a challenging bar complex: deadlift, hang power clean, front squat, push press, back squat. OR stay at a light weight and add one rep to each movement each round (Round 2 would be 2 deadlifts, 2 hang power cleans, etc.)

Compare to: July 25, 2018
Coaching Tips: Because of the rest, consider doing the first round or two with a more challenging progression on the box jumps and barbell. Try to do the back squats unbroken, and a high bar-upright torso- is going to be best for most folks. Really go hard on the burpees and the run because of the rest!
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: none
