Walking in the door today, I knew it was going to be one of those workouts where people are laid out on the ground afterwards. Squat Cleans are one of the most full-body movements out there, and can be very taxing. At the prescribed weights for today (135 and 95 pounds), that is no easy task for a workout with “As many rounds as possible” in the name!

Workout of the Day:
As many rounds as possible in 15 min of-
5 Squat Cleans (135lb/95lb) / 10 Ball Slams (50lb/30lb) / 15 Sit-ups (Ab-Mat)

Tonight was a big night for the athletes in the gym, as far as I was concerned. I know I mentioned in a recent post about how great form was looking lately, but today mid-workout I was blown away. You can see in the video the form folks were using. It’s one thing to do a Squat Clean when you’re rested, but to do them (and do them right) when you’re fatigued was AWESOME to see!

Athlete Results:
Jamie (85lb Squat Clean / 50lb Slam Ball)- 4 Rounds + 8 Ball Slams
