*Great job to everyone on 16.4! Don’t forget to submit your scores before 8pm on Monday night!

*If you are planning to repeat 16.4 today/tonight, I would recommend going with the plan we put forth on Friday, including 10-15 minutes of “cool down” on the bike or rower (again, don’t forget to submit your score!!).

*If you are “one and done,” complete the workout for today, being careful to avoid any movements or loading that feel particularly sore or funky. Our main goal over these 5 weeks is to have the best performance possible on Friday and/or Monday, so keep that in focus as you train over the course of the week.

A. Every 2 minutes, for 12 minutes (6 sets):
High Hang Clean + Hang Clean + Jerk

Build in load over the course of the 6 sets to something decently heavy for today

B. Every minute, on the minute, for 12 minutes:
Odd Minutes: 5 Thrusters @115-155/85-105*
Even Minutes: 2-4 Muscle Ups
*Go up or down in weight as you feel; goal is solidly efficient, heavy reps

Rest 2 minutes, then…

C. Every minute, on the minute, for 12 minutes:
Odd Minutes: 5 Power Cleans*
Even Minutes: 10 Burpees Over the Barbell
*Same protocol here as the Thrusters; challenge yourself, but keep it crisp

C. Three sets of:
Strict Weighted Pull-ups x 4-6 reps @21X0
Rest 60 seconds
Dumbell Bench Press x 8-10 reps @20X1
Rest 60 seconds
Face-Up Chinese Plank x 60 seconds
Rest 60 seconds
