On this “Weightlifting Wednesday”, athletes will begin by building to a heavy single hang squat clean. This is relatively heavy for the day, not a 1RM. The focus here is movement over loading. Within the workout, athletes should choose a weight on the barbell that they are confident they could complete 20+ repetitions unbroken when fresh. If torn between two weights, the lighter is better.

In a grippy ascending ladder workout, managing repetitions early will be important. Anytime we have a rep scheme like this, we want to treat the first three rounds as a buy-in. The workout doesn’t truly start until the round of 12’s. When to start breaking up reps will be athlete dependent. A safe place to start is the set of 9’s. With reps that are easily divisible, performing short sets of 3 with really quick breaks will allow athletes to keep moving forward. More significant than the size of the sets is the length of the rest. Short sets, short rest.
