WORKOUT STRATEGY & FLOW

Power Snatch:

Lightweight here, should be done mostly unbroken throughout.

Handstand push ups: This should be a rep count you can perform in a couple of sets throughout. Focus on driving through your palms and having quicker cycled reps to decrease time under tension.

***Modify with – Strict DB Shoulder Press (heavy) instead of pike pushups today.

Toes to bar: This should be a rep count you can perform in a smaller number of sets for most to all of the rounds.

Focus on coming through at the bottom and letting your torso come through the bar so you can build tension for the closing of the rep.

Bike: Hammer down here! We’d like the calories to take no more than 1 minute 45 seconds, so be aggressive!
