Dead Space (Time)

On the 5:00 x 5 Rounds: 7 Power Snatches (115/85) 15/12 Calorie Assault Bike 7 Overhead Squats (115/85) 20 x 10 Meter Shuttle Runs Rx+ 135/95 In our interval conditioning piece, you'll work through the four listed movements for time and then rest until the next interval begins Rounds start on the 0:00 - 5:00 - 10:00 - 15:00 - 20:00 Your score is the slowest of the 5 rounds We want rest built in to preserve intensity, so cap these rounds at 4 minutes to allow for at least 1 minute of recovery Choose a light-moderate barbell weight that allows for touch and go power snatches and unbroken overhead squats Both barbell movements are ideally performed at the same weight, unless there is a big gap between snatch and overhead squat capacity Setup tape or chalk line 10 meters apart for the shuttle runs, counting a rep every time 1 point of contact touches beyond the cone


Metcon (AMRAP - Rounds)

3 Giant Sets: 16 Dumbbell Front Rack Step Back Lunges (Foot Elevated) :30 Second Dumbbell Hollow Hold Rest 2 Minutes Between Sets A "Giant Set" means that you'll move with a purpose from one movement to the next while prioritizing quality over speed For the Step Back Lunges, alternate legs on each rep for a total of 8 each side Choose weights that are challenging, but allow you to complete the 16 reps without stopping We recommend standing on a 45# plate, but you can go higher or lower as you see fit The Dumbbell Hollow Hold is accumulated time and does not have to be completed unbroken Choose weights that allow you to complete the 30 total seconds in no less than 10 seconds at a time On both movements, you have the option to increase loading with each set or stay at the same challenging weight across Use separate sets of dumbbells for each movement, as we can likely move significantly more weight on the lunges than the hollow holds
