Garage(RX) 3 Rounds For Time
3 Rounds For Time
At 3…2…1…Go! You will start with an 800 meter Run. Next, you will perform 30 Squat cleans followed by 30 Burpees. That completes one round. Your score is the time it takes to complete 3 rounds.
The weight for this workout should be moderate. Don’t go too heavy so they slow you down too much. But don’t you dare use those 20’s.
The intended stimulus for this workout is a medium paced grueling party. A classic that is going to tax your endurance strength and mental fortitude. Find a good pace and try to stay smooth. Just keep moving.
Scales and Mods
The Squat cleans can be changed to deadlifts and hang cleans. Or you can deadlift at a 2 to 1 ratio.
