The med-ball clean is a great way to refine common faults see in the olympic lifts and is incredibly metabolic when performed with high repetitions like today. Great opportunity as coaches in this workout to see and correct athletes on things that likely show up when the have a barbell in their hands. The weight on the med-ball should be something that athlete’s could complete 15+ unbroken reps if they needed to.

 

With much of the work being front loaded here, having a plan will prevent athletes from hitting a wall after the first couple rounds. Planning to break two or three times for at least the first two rounds will allow athletes to remain consistent. The sit-ups are a nice break from the two other very metabolic movements, but having this break-up strategy will pay off when going from the med-ball back to the rope. As the reps start to go down, athletes might be able to hold on for larger sets with the workout coming to close.
