Warm-Up

A) 5 Rounds:

20 seconds work / 10 seconds rest:

Push-Up
Weighted Jump Ropes
Bar Hang

1 Round = all 3 movements complete in sequence

B) 2 Rounds with an empty bar:

10 Dumbbell Presses
10 Lunges, with an empty bar

Strength

1 Push Press + 2 Split Jerk:

Every 2 minutes x 7 rounds @ RPE 7

Strength Tip

Objective: build to an RPE of 7 then start your timer and perform 1 set (1 push press+ 2 split jerks) every 2 minutes for 7 rounds.
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.

Push Press: start with the bar in the front rack position. Feet should be hip-width. Start the movement with a dip, with the focus being bending the knee and maintaining an upright torso. After the dip aggressively drive with the legs and as the hips extend push hard with the arms until you are at full extension.

Split Jerk: same as the push press, but after the aggressive drive with the legs, the feet will land in a split position with the arms extended.

20 Hand Release Push-Ups
10 Kettlebell Swings, 53#/35#
200m Row
