Barbell Beatdown – Max C&J Complex

BBBD WOD2 Preview1

Full Workout Description
The clock will be set for 8 minutes. At the call of 3-2-1-GO, Partners will complete 40 partner burpees. Once completed, partners will work together to each find a Max for the barbell complex that consists of a Squat Clean, Front Squat, and Jerk. A good rep will be indicated by the Judge if the athlete successfully performs the movement standards for each movement, in succession, without putting down the bar. Athletes can change their weights at any time, up or down, while attempting to find their max lift of the complex. Before the 8 minutes expires, partners must complete another 40 partner burpees. A 1 pound penalty will be assessed for each burpee that is not completed within the 8 minute time frame.

Weights
Each station will be set up with any empty barbell and a stack of bumper plates. Athletes must load their bar after their first set of partner burpees.
