“Leim on Bhraidan”
CrossFit Leixlip WOD
- With a Running Clock in 12 minutes
- 18-9-5 reps of:
- Power Cleans (135/95 lb)
- Wall Ball Shots (20/14 lb)
- In the remaining time, establish:
- 1 rep max Thruster
On a 12-minute clock, athlete must perform the 18 Power Cleans and 18 Wall Ball Shots before moving on to 9 and 5 repetitions of each movement. Right after the couplet, athlete will have the remaining time to establish one rep max Thruster.
This workout is scored in two parts. Score A is the time it takes to complete the couplet. Score B is the maximum load successfully lifted within the remaining time.
Tips and Strategy
After finishing the first couplet, give yourself a full minute rest before adding weight to your thruster. You should take your first thruster attempt at the same weight you used for the metcon. Although we want you to move quickly through this workout, you will likely find that the best strategy is starting each round of cleans with a large set and then resorting to quick singles as soon as you break that set.
While the goal is to move quickly through the first couplet, you also want loads that allow you to move well. The loadings shouldn’t be so heavy that we see quality of movement break down by the end of the workout. The loading for this workout should feel moderate. Athlete should have a wall ball loading that allows you to maintain unbroken sets.
