Skill

E2MOM for 10 Minutes
2 Power Clean & Split Jerks

Work up to a moderate weight Power Clean & Jerk and perform 2 repetitions of that complex every 2 minutes for 10 minutes.  Ideally you choose a weight that allows you to do all both reps consecutively  with very little rest.   For a power clean we’re looking for a little bit lighter weight than you would use in a squat clean.  You’ll catch the bar in a partial squat dropping as low as is needed.  If you end up breaking parallel you have lifted correctly but have possibly gone a little too heavy.  With 5 rounds of essentially 4 reps and 2 minutes rest for each set you should be able to attempt a weight that is a bit heavier than you would use if  you  were performing this for 10 rounds on the minute or during a metcon.

WOD

AMRAP in 10 Minutes
3-6-9-12-15 …*
Kettlebell Swings 32/24kg
*Run 200M Before every round

Workout notes: Note that the workout starts with the 200M Run and continues with a 200M run prior to every set of kettlebell swings. The focus of the workout is moving fast through the early rounds which will consist of primarily running and working on consistency with the kettlebell swing. The suggestion is to try out a little bit heavier kettlebell than you normally swing if you have been moving the same weight for some time but do that only if you feel you are ready for that challenge.  If you are stuck in between sizes then consider scaling your swing by moving the kettlebell to eye level only.
