Workout of the Day (WOD)

“Raising the Bar”

9 Minute AMRAP

8 Lateral Bar Hop Burpees
7 Cleans
6 Front Rack Lunges (Level 1 – Front Squats)
5 Shoulder to Overhead

(m = 65/95/135, w = 45/55/95)

Tips from Neal Maddox:

I trust you will enjoy this workout again. Think about your experience with the workout the first time around. Did you struggle in your transitions? Could you have taken more strategic rest? For example, if you need to break up a round, it is better to set the bar down after 6 cleans, rest and then clean the bar up into the front rack position for your 7th rep. This sets you up for your front rack lunges without doing an extra rep. Also, fight not to put the bar down during front rack lunges and shoulder to overhead, because every drop results in an extra clean. Have fun, stay steady, and we can't wait to see your improvements. - Neal Maddox - 7 Time Games Athlete
