Push Jerk 4×2 at 65% 1RM
Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 mins of:
12 Push Jerks, 135/95 lbs
* Rest 1 min
The bar starts on the ground for each rep. However, you will rest 1 minute after each round. Why? Because the goal isn’t necessarily to try to “maximize” the number of rounds. The goal is to maximize the intensity of each round AND to try to hit each sets of push jerks without putting the bar down. You will try to get “tough and go” reps. The purpose of this is to fight through fatigue and resist the urge to set the bar down early. In addition to maximizing your ability to perform touch and go reps, the secondary goal of this workout is to perform consecutive toes 2 bar. If you cannot perform consecutive toes 2 bar with your feet touching the bar, then we can opt for a kipping toes to vicinity or kipping knees to chest.
Expect 4-6 rounds.
