Nothin but love! 😘
On our strength biased day yesterday, we had two separate pieces. The power snatch to begin, and the metcon to finish. Today, we are combining strength and conditioning into one element. We do this as a fun way to accomplish both tasks and provide some variance. Athletes will build in load on each set of their hang squat cleans. While these are heavy, they are still encouraged to complete these unbroken.
Conditioning WOD – 18 minutes
*Coaches – based on class size, start 3 different groups. RX athletes must start with minute one. If more than 30 athletes, please use the rowers instead of the ski ergs as needed. (is not RX though)
Every minute on the minute for 18 minutes complete (6 rounds)…
Min 1: 20/14 Ski erg
Min 2: 40 Double Unders
Min 3: 5-5-4-4-3-3 Hang Squat Cleans*See below
*Hang squat clean rep scheme will change with each round (Round 1 set of 5, Round 2 set of 5, round 3 set of 4… and so forth, aiming to increase weight as you go… as you will post your weight each round (must be unbroken)
*SCORE – You will have 6 scores. Your score will be the weight used for the unbroken hang squat cleans each round. You will need to list your hang squat weight as scaled if you did not accomplish the other two movements as RX within the minute time frame all 6 rounds. It’s all or nothing as far as RX or scaled. But please list the weight for each round!
*Scale double unders with either – 60 Single Unders or 40 Seconds Double Under Practice
HANG SQUAT CLEANS
In the hang squat clean, we are moving from a pulling grip (hook) to a squatting grip (loose). In order for the elbows to get forward and up quickly, we need to let it go. By it we’re talking about the hook grip. Letting it go following triple extension allows athletes to support the bar on the body and not in the arms. We wouldn’t front squat with elbows directly under the bar, but this is often the case when cleaning. Let it go to let the elbows fly up.
Up vs. Out
Balance and control of the weight is key in the clean, especially as we try to receive the barbell below parallel. Launching the bar away from the body by pushing it off the hips makes it harder to control. Brushing the bar off the hips is more ideal. Up is always better than out. Send the hips and shoulders straight up and the bar will follow.
*Reminder – An endurance workout is offered every Tue and Thur alongside our regular workout. These endurance workouts typically include a longer time duration, lighter weights combined with extra running, rowing or air biking. If you do not finish them or feel they are too challenging due to total time of work, feel free to scale or adjust the time occasionally.
