Working barbell cycling in the opening piece of the day
As the work time increases, so will the percentage on the barbell - which is based off your 1RM Power Clean
Use one barbell and change out the weights during your rest period
These reps do not have to be completed 'touch and go'
However, this is a good opportunity to try to cycle the lighter percentages in bigger sets than singles if possible
Your score is total reps across all three rounds
See below for the time line on a running clock for this workout:
0:00 - 0:20: 70%
0:20 - 1:00: Rest
1:00 - 1:30: 75%
1:30 - 2:00: Rest
2:00 - 2:40: 80%
2:40 - 4:00: Rest

1 Round of "The Chief":
3 Power Cleans (135/95)

Continue to add 1 round of "The Chief" until the 20 minutes is up

 

**EXTRA**

 

Metcon (AMRAP - Rounds)

3 Giant Sets:
:10-20 Second Single Arm Row Static Hold
14 Single Legged Romanian Kettlebell Deadlifts (7 Each)
:20-40 Second Supinated Grip Dead Hang
14 Single Arm Arnold Presses (7 Each)

These 3 Giant Sets of Body Armor are for quality and control over speed
A 'Giant Set' means you'll move directly from one movement to the next and rest as needed following the last station
All time frames and weight selections should be challenging, but unbroken each round
You can use different weights for all three weighted movements - they do not have to be completed at the same load
You have the option to increase loads or stay the same across the 3 sets
See below for video demos of each movement:
