Post loads to comments.
Compare to 200930.


Scaling:
Ideally, each set will be as heavy as possible, but newer athletes should start light and add weight as they are comfortable. Experienced athletes can establish a goal weight for the final set of each movement. Work backward to help guide the load choice for the initial sets. Spend at least 10-15 minutes warming up to the working load for the first set. If at any point your mechanics begin to deteriorate, decrease the load.

Intermediate Option:
Back squat 10-8-6-4 reps
Shoulder press 10-8-6-4 reps

Compare to 191208.


Scaling:
Focus on excellent technique on every set. The beginner should focus on mechanics instead of loading. If you have a previous maximal load for this movement, use this as an opportunity to attempt a new PR. For more experienced athletes, only increase the load if your technique is consistent.

Beginner Option:
Snatch 3-3-2-2-2-1-1 reps

Thursday 211014

Chelsea
Every minute on the minute for 30 minutes perform:

5 pull-ups
10 push-ups
15 squats

If you fall behind the clock, keep going for 30 minutes and see how many rounds you can complete.

If you've finished the workout before, this time add 1 rep to each exercise — i.e., 6 pull-ups, 11 push-ups, and 16 squats each minute — and see if you can go the full 30 minutes.

Post results to comments.
Compare to 180816.


Scaling:
For intermediate athletes, this benchmark has a built-in scale by requiring you to continue after you fail to meet the interval. Newer athletes should modify the movements and reps but try to maintain a similar interval structure.

Beginner Option:
Every minute on the minute for 20 minutes perform:
3 jumping pull-ups
6 knee push-ups
9 squats

If you fall behind the clock, keep going for 20 minutes and see how many rounds you can complete.

Compare to 210126.


Scaling:
For each movement, pick modifications that allow you to complete at least 10 reps. Reduce the weight on the snatches so that it is still heavy for you but light enough that you can cycle the reps. Newer athletes should treat today as an opportunity to practice two difficult movements.

Intermediate Option:

Scaling:
There is no need to modify the structure of this workout. Fatigue will become an issue as the rounds progress, so less fit athletes should decrease the number of rounds. Vary your intensity as the intervals change. When the work times are shorter, row harder.
