General Warmup and Core Work.  Let’s open up those hips with some Wall Squats and Russian Baby Makers.  Banded shoulder work for better performance overhead during the pressing.

EMOM 10 min
Back Squat x 3 @70%

Rest 3 minutes

EMOM 7 min
Push Press x 3 @70%

SQUATS!!!  Let’s load it up and move some weight.  Keep it clean, big breath at the top of EVERY rep.  On the presses it’s going to be higher percentage than normal for 3 reps, so find the right weight and keep them looking good.

Rest 3 minutes

3 Person Teams
Amrap 12 minutes
1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1

1 Person working at a time.  Each person will do 1 burpee then 2 burpees and so on until you work you way up and down the ladder.  That equals 1 round.
Deadlift EMOM – This is a moderate loading for higher rep sets.  We are really wanting to focus on doing each set unbroken and keeping the bar speed fast.  No resting at the bottom please.
12 Min Amrap – This is all about conditioning, each team will climb up and down the burpee ladder as many times as you can.  Every time it’s your turn to move put out max effort.

There will be a 10 minute cap on this WOD.  Scaling here is important.  If you can’t complete the rx’d amount of reps with pull-ups or at this weight, you should scale.  Everyone needs to be finished by 10 minutes.  The response we’re looking for will not be there if you push it past the 10 minute cap.  We want the reps in a short time frame….all of them!!

Roll hamstrings, quads and lats.
