This workout will be tough, and you are welcome to use a partner and scale the load and reps as you and your coach deem necessary. However, consider taking today and an opportunity to really push yourself to your limit and see what you can accomplish. The sacrifices others make to keep their communities safe deserve to be honored. So give your all today. It’s ok if it’s a struggle. It’s ok if you don’t complete the workout in the time cap provided. But just do you best- I bet you can do far more than you think.

4 jerks, (185/125)
