8 reps @ RPE 6
8 reps @ RPE 7
8 reps @ RPE 8

Strength Tip

Objective: build to an RPE of 8 for 1 set of 8 repetitions with every weight jump.

Start with the bar on your back, make sure your hands are in your “Snatch grip” or wide grip, jerk, or push press the bar overhead, with your arms locked out. Keep your midsection tight and slowly descend down into a full squat. Avoid letting your back round, maintain thoracic extension and only squat as low as proper form allows. Arms should be locked out for all the repetitions. Weight should be in the middle of your foot as you reach the bottom and as you come up from the bottom of the squat.

In this set, we use the RPE chart to regulate the training intensity. The chart ranges from 1-10, with 1 being absolutely no effort, and 10 being a maximum effort.

5 Squat Clean Thrusters*, 95#/65#

A. Squat Clean Thruster: Perform a squat clean into a thruster, repeat at a light to moderate weight for 5 repetitions. If you are not receiving 15 seconds of rest or more, scale repetitions to 3.

B. Both the toes to bar and the push ups should be completed in the same 60 seconds window. If you are not receiving 15 seconds of rest or more, scale repetitions to 8/8.
