Friday 9/14/18


With a running clock, EVERY MINUTE perform 1 lift and MEN add 10# every minute while LADIES add 5# every minute (stipulations below in SCALING section)

Start with an empty barbell and snatch for as long as possible.
Once you cannot snatch the weight, clean for as long as possible.
Once you cannot clean the weight, deadlift for as long as possible.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Scaling is below to maintain cohesiveness between the whole class. Some will still finish faster than others but this will get everyone closer to hitting similar amount of total lifts. Please share a bar with someone with very similar #s to you so that you finish each lift within a couple minutes of each other. Whoever fails first will have a couple mins of rest while they are waiting for their barbell buddy to fail.

SCALING (everyone read plz)
-If you are a man and your Deadlift PR is under 275lbs then increase by 5#s on snatches and deadlifts
-If you are a female and your Deadlift PR is under 150lbs then start with a 15# bar
-For LIII athletes you may choose to add M-20#s/F-10#s each deadlift to stay under the 40 min time cap

*Take note that the snatches will most likely take the longest since they build from an empty barbell. You will likely have less lifts to get to your clean and deadlift max for the day.

*Remember, you are lifting once per minute. This might prevent you from getting close to your current 1RMs. Don't let that frustrate you. It's how the workout was designed. HAVE FUN with this!!
