Coaches Notes:

  • On the strength component, put 5-10lbs more on the bar compared to the last time we worked on a 5x5 for front squats
  • Grace is meant to be a sprint!  Choose a weight that you are able to complete in under 10 minutes, preferably under 5 min.  Top Grace scores are sub 2 min, to give you an idea of how fast you should be moving.
  • With these sprint workouts, it is very important to put technique/form first for safety and efficiency.
  • Every rep should look as perfect as your first.  If you notice your form degrading, take a break or take some weights off the bar.
  • The WOD is described as clean and jerk, but you are welcome to do a shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk to get the weight overhead.  The requirements are from ground to overhead in two movements.
  • Let's see the Weekly PR board fill up!
