EFFICIENCY TIPS

This workout can go sideways REALLY FAST if athletes pick a weight that’s too heavy, and will be unfulfilling if they go too light. You should be aiming for something you know you can do 8-10 reps of, and then you’re going to try to hang on for the last 5-7 reps.

15 UB Clean & Jerks doesn’t sound like a lot…until the bar is in your hands the whole time. If you pick the right weight, around rep 7, the temptation to drop the bar gets REAL. At Rep 12, it’s practically screaming to be dropped. And you’ve still got 3 reps left.

The upside to this if that if you can hang on, you get ~2:00 of rest to shake your arms out. This is a nice break, but isn’t as long as you think. Actively shake the arms while you pedal.

The DOWNSIDE is that every time you break, you effectively add 1:00 to your workout time. With 8:00 of biking and roughly 4:00 of Clean & Jerks, 1:00 is a high price to pay. Pick your poison carefully, rest where you have to, and HOLD ON!!!
