Metabolic Conditioning: “Time After Time“
For Time. 3 Rounds for reps
1 min dumbbell reverse lunge (Health: 15lb, Athletic: 30lb*, Performance: 45lb) each lunge is one rep
1 min toes-to-bar OR bar muscle-up (1 BMU counts as 3 toes to bar)
1 min dumbbell hang power clean (same weight)
*Women’s “Performance” weights and reps (Rx)
Scaling Guide: 100 – 180 reps, about 45 reps per round
Coaching Tips: Balance the dbs on your shoulders for the lunges (like a front rack). Step back and let the knee kiss the ground. Avoid tipping forward with the torso. Think about ‘leaning back’ on the toes to bar. Point your toes and hit your laces on the bar. Use the hook grip on the db cleans if you can. Do not be surprised if the later sets of toes to bar and cleans are much harder because your grip is blown up.
