Solid bridge from Cassie during Turkish get-ups. Done for quality and/or load, get-ups can demonstrate and train excellent mid line stability.

Back Squat
Find your 6 rep max.
E2MOM (every second minute on the minute) for 20 minutes:
Perform 6 back squats from the rack. Go as heavy as you can, aim to increase weight each of the last 5 rounds or so, ending with a 6 rep max. Warm-up before the E2MOM starts so you don’t start too light. Remember, one of the ways we build strength is by doing a good amount of volume at heavy weight. We don’t build strength by doing 8 light rounds and then making huge jumps and making only the last two rounds challenging, that’s how we get hurt.

Workout of the Day
Inspired by CrossFit Linchpin,
2 rounds for time:
50 double-unders
15 power cleans (135/93)
50 double-unders
15 push jerks

This workout is capped at 16 minutes.  The power cleans and push jerks need to be manageable.  It should be a weight you could handle the push jerks in two sets.  If you can’t do double-unders, you will do 75 single-unders instead.

Fasha makes rope climbs look easy now.

Every 90 seconds for 18 minutes:
Every odd interval, practice snatch by performing 1 muscle snatch + 3 power position power snatches.
Every even interval, perform AMRAP of ring chin-ups.

The snatch practice should be as heavy as you can go but without the potential for failure. Practice the speed and foot work with the power position snatches.  Heaviest load will not be recorded, but the total chin-ups completed will.  Scale the chin-ups to bar chin-ups and then use a band from there.  Standard for the chin-ups will be chin above your hand.

Workout of the Day
AMRAP in 15 minutes:
30 kettlebell snatches (53/35)
60 wall-balls (20/14)
90 double-unders

The kettlebell snatches are total, so 15 each arm per round.  If even with a lighter wall-ball you foresee this workout being a 15 minute of wall-balls, you are allowed to cut the reps down.  If you can’t do double-unders, you will do 180 single unders instead.

Workout of the Day
Teams of 2, perform AMRAP in 20 minutes:
20 thrusters (135/93)
20 muscle-ups

As a team if you both aren’t very good at muscle-ups, you should cut the reps down a bit.  If you can’t do muscle-ups, you will do 30 chest-to-bar pull-ups instead.   Scale down the pull-ups from there.  For today, the jumping pull-ups must be chest-to-bar.
