Next Wednesday’s evening WOD will be this week’s Games WOD to give you a chance to try it.
Have a read of the WOD information below, and visit the Games site for an overview of the movement standard
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 5 minutes of:
- Squat clean (75kg for men/ 50kg for women)
- Jerk (75kg for men/ 50kg for women)
In this movement, the barbell goes from ground to overhead with the athlete passing through a full squat position while the barbell is racked on the shoulders. This can be a full-squat-clean-thruster, a power-clean-front-squat-split-jerk, or anything in between as long as the three key positions are reached. The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing. The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below knees. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the heels.
