8 reps @ RPE 8
Here we are using 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.
Objective: build to an RPE of 8 for 2 sets 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.

RX: As is
AX – for masters athletes or novice athletes that want to move and have fun.
RX – most athletes that have training experience and want a little push!
RX+: competitive athletes that want a little more dose of the good stuff.
Pistol or One-Legged Squats: if this movement is too challenging to complete, scale to walking lunges.
Kettlebell Swings: you should scale the load so you can complete 10 repetitions or more each time you pick up the bell.
Pull-Ups: these are strict movements, the first scale should be scaling the repetitions. The second scale should be negative pull-ups.
