    (Link to article: “Searching” )

    5 rounds of:

    3 Power clean @ 75% of 2RM
    3 Pull-up (Scaled to full ability in each round)
    :30 sec. rest

    Focus on set-up position, violence of action, and fluidity; Take time, make positional adjustments as needed, and adjust weight accordingly if sets require interruption at designated weight.

    Advanced pull-up suggestions include: Weighted, L-pull-up, chest-to-bar, negative. No kip, no butterfly.


    Kettlebell high pull + Goblet catch:

    5 x 5 @ as heavy as possible in each

    Focus in this movement variation is a powerful, dynamic kettlebell high pull transitioning into an organized and aggressive “catch” in the standard Goblet position (hands on side of handles, forearms driven into sides of kettlebell). Today, hold each rep for an organized, stopped 2/1000, quickly re-position hands, and re-trace steps to the ground. There is no “hinge” in the up- or- down of a kettlebell high pull.

    And then:

    Kettlebell high pull + Goblet squat:

    5 x 5 @ (up to) heaviest above

    Organized, aggressive kettlebell high pull, strong bracing and reset, and full-range, powerful squat. Retrace your steps to the ground in each rep. No lazy set-ups, no soft lifts.

    Today: Perform 1 pull-up (scaled to full ability) immediately following each set of kettlebell lifts, and then rest.

    And finally, “Time under tension”:

    200 yd. Farmer walk (20 yd each @ BW- 50% in each hand) + 25 calories Airdyne @ cool-down pace + 25 cat/ cow stretch

    Farmer walk: If previous outing was performed uninterrupted, congratulations; Increase one interval this time through.
