Scaling:
Today’s workout is a Hero. Compared to other Hero WODs, this is quick and should not be drawn out into a long slog. To keep moving, reduce the weight and reps on the split cleans. Modify the pull-ups so each round can be completed in 3 or 4 sets.

Scaling:
Expect today’s workout to fall in a moderate time domain. We are performing a lower volume of squat clean thrusters, but the challenge lies in hanging on to the barbell. A single repetition is a squat clean from the floor directly into a thruster. The bar must then be returned to the ground to begin the next rep. This workout is intended to be used with a moderately light barbell to allow for large, unbroken sets.

The runs should take no longer than 2:30. Push to complete the first 12 squat clean thrusters unbroken, or as close to it as possible. The intent of this workout is to cycle a lighter load across a large range of motion and push the pace on the runs.

Hang squat cleans

Scaling:
Today’s goal is to lift something heavy for 2 repetitions across 5 sets. Remember, heavy is relative to each individual's capacity, but regardless, each effort should require your full focus and attention. If you know your percentages, aim to keep all sets at or above 75% of your 1-rep-max clean. Continue to increase the load across as many sets as possible. Each set of 2 cleans must be completed unbroken and start from above the knee.

Monday 231204

Meet Guest Programmer – Michele Letendre: Dec. 4-17, 2023.

7 rounds for time:
7 deadlifts
7 hang power cleans
7 front squats
Rest 1:00 between rounds.

♀ 105 lb
♂ 155 lb

Post total time, including rest, to comments.

Goal: 10-12 minutes.

Jan Kozak, our newest addition to the team at Deka Comp, gave us this one. Kozak has a love for barbell cycling and here are some of his notes:

Pulling, cleaning, squatting — all the barbell fun in one good, clean rodeo. Athletes should attempt to go unbroken on the bar throughout, but it’s likely many will break the reps up late in the workout.

Fast in this triplet means efficient. You can’t rush this load if you struggle to have control over the basic elements of each movement: Bar path, upper-back engagement, and for the cleans, proper turnover mechanics. To set yourself up for success, move cleanly on the deadlifts (pun intended), be snappy when receiving the bar in the cleans, and keep your weight in your heels on the front squats.

Intermediate option:
7 rounds for time:
7 deadlifts
7 hang power cleans
7 front squats

♀ 75 lb
♂ 115 lb

Intermediate athletes should focus on moving through the hang power cleans as efficiently as possible.

Beginner option:
7 rounds for time:
7 deadlifts
7 hang power cleans
7 front squats

♀ 45 lb
♂ 65 lb

Beginners should focus on the setup position in the deadlift. Rather than aiming for unbroken reps, take strategic breaks to reset. A strategy could be to drop the bar on the sixth deadlift, then perform the last rep with the plan to go straight into the hang power cleans. Focus on a big jump and shrug in the hang power cleans — break around reps 4 or 5 if needed. Go for unbroken front squats if possible.
