“The Cavemanator Challenge”
Coach Creation WOD
- One Attempt for Max Reps
- Kettlebell Clean and Strict Press
- Kettlebell Clean-and-Jerk
- Kettlebell Half Snatch
You are allowed one attempt at max reps of the exercises with only one switch for each exercise before moving on to the next exercise. No more than one second before moving the weight, in other words, resting longer than one second is now allowed. Putting the weight down is not allowed.
For the strict press, you only need to press up and you can drop the weight back into a racking position. For the snatch, you can squat under.
There are no scaling options for this challenge.
Score is the total number of reps times the weight used. For example, if you used a 16 kg and did a total of 200 reps then your score is 3,200 kg. If you used pounds, then just multiply by pounds and use lbs at the end of the score. Add an M for male or F for female, i.e. 3200KGM.
About the wod
Background: The terminator just keeps coming, there is no stopping him, and these exercises or rather the mental toughness you’ll develop will make you unstoppable.
Intended Stimulus: The strict presses are to tax the shoulders so much that you won’t be using them for the exercises where you should not be using them, i.e. the jerk is a lower-body exercise and not a press, and the snatch is too, get that weight as high as possible with the power from the lower body and press out.
Strategy: Employ a pendulum clean rather than a hip hinge or hardstyle clean, your grip will go before anything else.
