Context:   Competition

Metabolic Conditioning: “Hail to the King

For time. 5 rounds 

4 squat snatch (Health: 35lb power snatch + overhead squat / Athletic: 65lb*/ Performance: 95lb)

Ring dips (Health: 3 assisted dips / Athletic: 3*/ Performance: 6)

20′ lateral shuffle x 10 (5 round trips), 1 hand line touch each rep

*Women’s “Performance” weights and reps (Rx)

Scaling Guide: 6 – 11 minutes, about 1.5 min per round. Scale Up: 135/85lb bar, 4/2 muscle ups instead of ring dips

Coaching Tips: Power snatch to overhead squat is acceptable for all levels, but squat snatches are preferred if they can be done with correct form. For severe mobility issues, a power/muscle clean plus front squat should be used (at a slightly larger load). Ring dips need to have full lock out at the top and the bicep/ shoulder should touch the top of the ring every rep. Practice kipping before the workout starts if you don’t have this skill down yet. Push the pace on the shuffles to keep the intensity up.  Getting complacent here will slow the workout down significantly and reduce intensity!

‘Cash Out’: 50m farmer carry (inside), 15 burpees, 3 rounds
