    John. Springtime hop-over (2010).

    Back squat:

    Climb to a new 1RM using warm-up sets of no more than 5 reps before adjusting weight. Rest as needed, and keep total number of lifts under 20. (Ex. 5, 5, 3, 3, 1, 1, 1)

    Then, as many rounds as possible in 6 minutes of:

    3 Lateral burpees*
    6 1-arm kettlebell Thruster @ 50-60% of TGU 1RM

    If/ as soon as squat mechanics fail, Thruster becomes push press. Weight does not decrease unless push press also fails. Switch arms as desired.

    *Lateral burpees involve a two-footed, side-to-side jump over an implement of your choice and do not include the clap overhead.
