Pause Clean 2RM, then 90%x2x3
Notes: This is a full three second pause directly below the knee. I recommend having athletes count for each other.
8 Strict Pullups
8 Box Jumps, 36″/28″
12 Kettlebell Swings, 32kg/24kg
(TARGET INTENSITY: 8.5)
U.S. Army Major Thomas E. Kennedy, 35, of West Point, New York, assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, based in Fort Carson, Colorado, died on Aug. 8, 2012, of wounds suffered when an insurgent detonated a suicide vest in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. He is survived by his wife, Kami; son, Brody; daughter, Margaret; parents, George and Patricia; and brothers, John and George.Notes: At the top of the pullup, the chin must be both be higher than the bar and break the vertical plane of the bar, i.e. the chin cannot be behind the bar. Count the repetition upon returning, under control, to the hollow hang at the bottom, not when the chin clears the bar at the top.
Pull-up: As long as athletes can perform pullups at least in singles with short rest, do not scale repetitions. Perform Banded Pullups OR Strict Ring Row
Box Jump: All athletes should be encouraged to STEP down, not jump down! Scale the height if necessary OR perform step-ups.
Kettlebell Swing: Weight should be challenging but manageable. Scale the load.
