"Grunt Work" - Week 10.

1. Week three of three in our back squat wave build. Following with a 3% in last week. 

2. This will take us into our next part, a pairing of two complexes - gymnastic and Olympic     Building to a heavy snatch complex for the day, we'll challenge our movement with a  gymnastic    buy-in each round.




Every 2 Minutes

Back Squat
3 x 79%
1 x 89%
3 x 82%
1 x 92%
3 x 85%
1 x 95%

Week three of three in this progression, increasing by 2% from last week.





"On the 2:00" x 7 Sets:
4 Toes to Bar
2 Bar Muscle-Ups
1 Hang Power Snatch
1 Overhead Squat
1 Hang Squat Snatch


Set 1 - 60%
Set 2 - 64%
Set 3 - 68%
Set 4 - 72%
Sets 5-7 - build to a heavy complex for the day.



Inside this combination of gymnastics and the barbell, we'll open up each round with a gymnastic complex. Stimulus wise, we are looking for a set count that we feel very comfortable completing unbroken for at least the first few rounds. A brief break after the toes to bar is entirely acceptable, but we are looking to get to the barbell each round at the latest by the :40s mark.


Today is an excellent day to modify the volume to ensure we are meeting that criteria, as well as integrating a bar muscle-up drill if we are not yet completing the full movement.

Following our gymnastics "buy-in", we have our snatch complex.

We are looking for this to be completed unbroken, barring any shoulder/safety issues bringing it down from overhead. Any time remaining after completing the complex in the 2:00 window is rest.
