Today is a long metcon of heavy weightlifting, high skill gymnastics, and running. The clean should be received in a full squat each rep. Scale the weight to something heavy (around 80% of your 1RM) To scale muscle-ups, do some sort of pull-up (rings are preferred, but bar is acceptable) and dip (rings, 30″ box, or parallettes) AMRAP in 30 min: 7 cleans, 185/125# 7 muscle-ups run 400m

Strength is not a 3 rep max – instead, choose a weight you can do 3 sets of 3 reps at that same weight. The metcon is a repeat of Open workout 12.2. The snatches may be power or full snatches. Notice that the women’s weights are different than we usual scale to. Depending on your strength, you may choose to do the Rx version and simply test as far as you can go. However, if you don’t have the strength or if you’d like to get through more reps, then you might want to do these weights for the ladder: 75/45, 95/55, 115/65, 135/85 Strength Back squat 3×3 Conditioning Open WOD 12.2 AMRAP in 10 minutes: 30 snatches, 75/45# 30 snatches, 135/75# 30 snatches, 165/100# 30 snatches, 210/120#

For the alternating EMOM, setup several bench press stations with 135/95, or a scaled weight. You’ll do 5-10 bench press reps depending on your strength. On the opposite minutes, you’ll do 12 goblet lunges – these are alternating lunges (6L/6R) while holding a KB in front of your chest with both hands. For logistics, one group might start on lunges while the other starts on bench. The metcon is an ascending ladder of clean and jerks and burpees over bar. The CJs are intended to be power cleans and push jerks or push presses (“Grace” style) Alternating EMOM for 10 min: A) 5-10 Bench press, 135/95# B) 12 goblet lunges, 53/35# AMRAP in 12 minutes: 1 clean and jerk, 135/95# 3 burpees over bar 2 clean and jerks 6 burpees over bar 3 clean and jerks 9 burpees over bar 4, 12..5, 15..etc

This workout is for total time, but there is built in rest. Deadlift weight should be around 75% of your 1RM. Beginners can either scale this to 5 rounds, or reduce the amount of pull-ups.
