It’s TEST WEEK so get your mind right: In the Olympic Weightlifting track you will max out a simple power + full sequence for the contested lifts, and a chance at overhead squat and front squat maxes. In Powerlifting you’ll have some opportunities to hit 1RM in any of the following: back squat, box squat, front squat, strict press, seated press, push press, bench press, sumo deadlift, and the conventional deadlift.

We’re in Week 2 of programming. Olympic Weightlifting will focus on proper sequencing and timing at heavier loading. Powerlifting is in the Volume Phase of this cycle.

In CrossFit conditioning workouts, where maximum work is valued over absolute loading, it’s important to utilize technique that allows for that. Sometimes that means you have to change up traditional technique to complete the work goal.

In the traditional “classic clean & jerk”, the goal is to lift the heaviest load from the ground to the shoulders, then from the shoulder to a stable overhead standing position.

In a CrossFit conditioning workout, the most efficient way to satisfy the standard (“ground-to-shoulder-to-overhead”) is to bypass the rest at the shoulders by launching straight into the jerk from the receiving position of the clean.

Try it out!

jumping muscle-up + chest-to-bar pullup + pullup
chest-to-bar pullup + pullup + jumping pullup
pullup + jumping pullup + ring row
jumping chest-to-bar pullup + strict ring row + kipping ring row
