Completing the same technique work as yesterday, this time with the clean instead of the snatch.

After that, repeating a conditioning workout from the beginning of the "Sled Dog" cycle to track our progress.

Finishing the day out with a 3% increase over last week on Deadlift Stamina.

Fish out of Water (Time)

For Time:
2K Row
Directly into 10 Rounds:
3 Power Cleans
6 Pushups
9 Air Squats

Barbell Pounds - 155/105

In today's effort, we have two parts. A 2K row, which moves directly into 10 rounds of "The Chief", a complex involving 3 power cleans, 6 pushups, and 9 air squats. There is a single score - the time to completion of the full work load. For tracking, it may help to record our 2K time for future reference.

Pacing wise, it is clear that we need to pace the 2K row (different than a max effort). The real question is, how much do we pace.

Looking forward, the stimulus of the barbell loading is one that is on the moderately heavy side. One that we could cycle for 12+ repetitions unbroken, when completely fresh. Knowing that this, coupled with the pushups and air squats is more of a metabolic effort, we can dig into this row a fair amount. Le's visualize a pace of 2K race pace plus about :10-15s. It is still a reserved pace (finishing a good 45+ seconds slower than our 2K race pace), but this will allow us to push our efforts on the 10 rounds that follow.

In these 10 rounds, as one can imagine, there are a good amount of transitions. This is where seconds can disappear very easily. Between the 10 rounds, there are a total of 30 transitions. We've all seen a "lazy" transition before, or a lengthy one where we take a trip to the chalk bucket. Only a handful of these transitions can compound to something very significant. And on the flip side, being disciplined with our transitions can save us 15-30s, without even noticing it.

Inside those transitions, we are looking for a smooth, methodical pace. Most especially, on the air squats. These tend to be the pacer, affording us a chance to regulate our breathing, which tend to be more difficult on the cleans and pushups. Aim is to find a breathing pace, where each rep, we are forcing in a deep breath.

Not to harp on the air squats excessively, but this is a combination that tends to butcher our movemen
