Scale Pistol Squats to a box if needed. If you’re close to getting it, use a kettlebell as a counterbalance and see how you can do. If you have Pull Ups but not Chest to Bar Pull Ups or Muscle Ups, continue doing Pull Ups. If you can’t do Pull Ups, do not do Chest to Bar Pull Ups using a band. Either do regular Pull Ups with a smaller band, or do Ring Rows.

This workout should be 20 rounds total – 10 rounds for you, and 10 rounds for your partner. Try to match up with someone who’s about as fast as you so you’re at a roughly 1:1 rest:work ratio. KB Swings should be overhead for advanced/competitors, otherwise eye level is fine.

Strength
Split Jerk
20m Split Jerk practice

Conditioning
“Grace”
30 Clean and Jerks (135/95)

After warming up, we’ll spend the first part of the class working on the Split Jerk. We’ll take the bars out of the squat racks, and the goal is to work up to a weight you can hit for an easy double with no misses along the way. If you go too heavy and miss a lift, lighten the load. We’ll be Split Jerking for the next few weeks, so you’ll have opportunities to go heavy. Stay light and work on technique today.

We’ll then hit the benchmark workout “Grace.” We’ll spend 5-8 minutes warming up the Clean, but that weight should be light and it shouldn’t require a lot of warm up.
