CONDITIONING for Thursday 11/19/2020
21-15-9 reps for time:
burpee box jumps
Find a height that allows you to pop up immediately after getting upright from the burpee. Power cleans ideally would be heavy (we imagined a 61/43/29kg barbell), and the weighted step-ups would occur with your standard CFOpen weights of 50/25/10lbs to the same thing you were jumping onto. 20:00 time cap.
