Skill

Power Clean
1-1-1-1-1

Work up to a strong effort power clean.  The lift should start just as you would with a squat clean.  Your back angle should remain static as you pull the bar off of the ground and you should start opening your hips as the bar passes your knees.  Re-bend to receive the bar at your shoulders and let your grip open up slightly.  As the bar gets heavier you should meet the bar at a lower elevation. If things are working correctly your last lift would be a squat clean or close to it.

WOD

In front of a clock set for 12 minutes

1 minute of Double Unders
1 minute of Kettlebell Swings 32/24 kg
2 minutes of Double Unders
2 minutes of Kettlebell Swings 32/24 kg
3 minutes of Double Unders
3 minutes of Kettlebell Swings 32/24 kg

 This workout will be scored as you would a workout like “fight” gone bad. Your score will be your total number of repetitions across all 6 rounds.  If you are new to double unders use this format to try and learn the skill by committing to double unders during all three rounds with the rope rather than performing single unders.
