Ten rounds for time of:
8 Ground to Overhead (95/65 lbs)

A1. Up to 245#
A2. All sets at 195#
B. ✅
C. 15:39 – you would think after all the bbjos we do, these burpees over the barbell would be easy. But they still get hard! Happy holidays everyone ?

Thanks Al, but to be clear, I didn’t finish the 10 rounds! If you read the details under the workout, it explains how to score it. 15:39 means I was 39 reps away from making the 10 rounds in the time cap. Congrats to you for so much improvement in one year, and for sticking with it and finishing the 10 rounds yourself! Even though I wanted more reps, I was glad to be saved by the buzzer ?

A. 180 kg (Clean grip) and then 140.
I am doing clean grip since a year ago in DL to try to transfer strength here to cleans and it is working.
B. 10 cals each set
C. 13’30”
Scaled to 35kg instead of 43, to try to get an aerobic workout.

Huge leap forward since last time, due to I did clean and jerks (40kg)(no strength enough to keep snatchs) and just 8+12. This time I reduced a little the load and completed the workout. Next time I’ll try with 38kg I guess, small steps make huge improvements.

Yep 20.1 was the first one I ever did just over a year ago, I did wonder what the heck I was doing afterwards! Just plenty of monotonous hypertrophy and strength workouts before that!!
