  • 2222 Intervals:
  • In 2 minute windows:
  • 15/12 Calorie Bike Erg
  • 5 Bar MU
  • Max Clean and Jerks in remaining time (185 pounds /125 pounds, 85kg/56kg)

Rest 2 minutes, then repeat until 30 clean and jerks are completed.

Scaling options: Swap out pull-ups or chest-to-bar pull-ups for the bar muscle-ups. Drop the clean & jerk weight to 155/115 or 135/95.

Some advice from Katelin: “Go hard in the 2 min window cause you get the 2 mins rest; challenge yourself. Prepare for that 3rd round to be the worst, but aim for consistency across the board. And do it with a friend!”To inquire about submitting an upcoming workout of the week, shoot us a note.
