Workout of the Day – Wednesday August 14th, 2019 “IHOP”

By: 0


Squat Clean (1X5)

On the 1:30 x 5 Sets:

Pausing Clean Pull

Low-Hang Squat Clean

Front Squat

Sets: 50% – 53% – 56% – 59% – 62% of 1RM Clean

This 3-movement complex is designed to be completed without dropping the bar

For the Pausing Clean Pull: Pause 1 second just off the ground and 1 second at knee level

Barbell Cycling: Squat Clean (Time)

For Time:

10 Squat Cleans (45%)

8 Squat Cleans (55%)

6 Squat Cleans (65%)

4 Squat Cleans (75%)

2 Squat Cleans (85%)
The first 18 reps of the workout are much lighter than the last 12

While it’s tempting to bank a lot of time at the lighter weights, we also want to make sure you’re composed for the heavier sets at the end

Move at a controlled pace on the first 2 bars to allow yourself to thrive on the last 3

This likely means steady singles from the beginning of the workout

Use the weight changes as an opportunity to catch your breath and recover a bit for the next weight jump
