  WORKOUT (~12:00)

12:00 AMRAP


Power cleans

Box jumps (30″/24″)  (used 3 45# plates stacked – I actually jumped on them for the rounds of 1, 2, 3, and then I think I did one time where I did 4 – the remainder I did step-ups)

*After completing the round of 5 reps return back 1 rep and repeat the ladder.

*After completing 2 full successful cycles of 1-2-3-4-5 reps increase the load on the power cleans.
The prescribed loads are as follows:
Cycles 1 and 2: 165lbs/115lbs  (55#)
Cycles 3 and 4: 185lbs/125lbs (60#) 
I was able to finish through cycle 4.

Cycles 5 and 6: 205lbs/145lbs

Notes The initial load on the power clean is intended to be moderate to build up.
The box jump height is challenging but is intended for consistent reps to be performed for the first 2 cycles.
Achieving 4+ cycles of this workout is intended to be a difficult goal to achieve and all should strive to complete a variation that allows for ~3+ cycles to be completed.

I was beat after this workout. Sweating like crazy. It was tough.

Now to shower, and head to work.
Have a good day everyone. See you tomorrow.
