Strength Complex

Push Press + Jerk

WOD “Graduate”

20 Pull ups (5 Bar Muscle ups RX+)
30 Burpees
40 Walking Lunges (20/20)

WOD Brief

A heavy complex to get us started allows us to focus our training on moving the bar overhead and pull from our power reserves. The combination of both movements the push press + a jerk must be completed for that set to count. We will take time to get the weight up and then begin working through 6 heavy complexes. You will ultimately lift less than your one rep max for the the jerk, given you are doing a push press first, but as part of our larger training cycle this will build your strength across both movements.

Focus on driving that bar straight up, each and every rep. Split or push jerk is fine. Show control at the top of the lift before dropping it.

The WOD is the Graduate, congrats to Coach Joey for getting it done!

We have a 14 minute AMRAP and start off with a heavy shoulder to overhead bar. Any method is allowed, so long as the bar begins on your shoulders (front rack) and ends with you locked out overhead and full lockout. Scale the weight to your heavy and let’s get these 10 reps.

Pull-ups may be done any style and should be a quick area to chip away the reps (BMU for those RX+).

BURPEES – two feet down, two feet back, jump in the air, arms overhead is a good rep.

Finally 40 walking lunges – knee touches the ground please.
