7 Sets of 2 Complexes:
Pausing Clean Deadlift + Power Clean 

On the pausing clean deadlift, we have two pauses:
Pause 1 – Just below the Knee. As this point in the pull of the ground, we want shins vertical with the shoulders over the bar. Lats are on here. As a cue, think of squeezing your armpits tightly closed.
Pause 2 – Mid-thigh, or jumping position. Shoulders are still ever so slightly over the bar, with the weight still back towards our heels.
After the pausing clean deadlift, you can drop the bar from the waist level or set the bar down. Reset for the power clean (no touch and go), and focus on the bar path off the ground during the lift, now with speed added.

800 Meter Run
21 Power Cleans (155/105)

Back Squat – Establish a Heavy Set of 15 Reps
50% for guidance
• Warm up well then hit a set of 15 ONCE!
• We will test this 15-rep a total of three times over the nine weeks. Start, middle, and end. Wise to start conservative today – let’s choose to accomplish a 15-rep that challenges us, we do not want to reach absolute failure today. Through several injects throughout the week of stamina training, this will be one of several numbers to climb throughout the cycle.

RECOVERY(after class):
EMOM x 10
“X” ABMAT Sit-Ups
“X” Banded Good Mornings
• Athlete’s choice on numbers, with the knowledge that we are going to build upon this base. Recommended to start conservatively.
