Fathom – longer workout today based on your approach
Gear – never feeling out of breath because pacing yourself to prevent too much fatigue before the heavy squat cleans is the priority. Programming a heavy lift or a high skill gymnastics at the end of a round in a workout is meant to slow you down. Getting there trashed won’t help you finish each round with good form. If the bar is too light, you will rip through the reps and the intensity will be far too high to sustain for 5 rounds. If the bar is loaded correctly, it will force you to slow way down, do controlled singles, allowing you to get right back on your run and burpee box jump overs.
Knots – the squat cleans should be heavy enough to push you toward singles even in the sets of 5.
Current – square time

Some thoughts from Coach Kristi
Thursday, I love this workout, some cardio, mixed in with heavy BB. This one makes you think, you have to decide what you are putting on the bar. I will always work backward from what I want to hit on the last bar. Thinking between 80-85% for the single, then working back from there.

This workout is all about pacing. I feel like the big piece is the BBJO. Can you find a rhythm where as soon as you are done you can get right on the bar? Or in the scenario of no rest, use the time after the BBJO to change your plates, let your heart rate slow a little, hit your lifts, and go back out on the run.
