Skill

1RM Clean and Jerk

Spend some time working up to a strong effort Clean & Jerk.  The squat clean & split jerk is usually the most effective method for moving big weights so unless you have a mobility issue you should be working on the mechanics of those movements. Everyone should start with a very light warmup and increase gradually.  New lifters should only increase weight when you are able to consistently repeat the same technique.

WOD

AMRAP in 10 Minutes
30 Double Unders
15 Sit-ups with medicine ball 20/14 lb

Workout Notes

Today’s workout pairs a pretty simple skill with a more difficult one.  We are adding a bit of difficulty to the sit up by holding on to a medicine ball.  You will tap the ball behind your head as you lay down for the sit-up and then sit all the way up with it at the top of the rep.  You will always be completing twice as many double unders as you are sit-ups.  If you are still having trouble with double unders you can scale the number of reps each round rather than doing only singles.  You could choose to complete the same number of double unders as sit-ups each round or even half as many double unders as sit-ups if you are very new to this skill.  If you are still unable to get any double unders at all you can complete the same number of single jumps per round with a double under attempt every 5 jumps.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
