“1775”

17 Power Cleans (135/95)

75 Squats

Return to the plates and then carry one forward to the barbell.

Retrieve the second plate, carry it forward to the barbell and reload the barbell for the next round.

***Can be done solo (RX+) or with a partner (RX). Bring sunblock and a towel to put on your barbell to keep it cool in the sun!

INTENDED STIMULUS

Long duration hero workout. This is actually a good mix of some low intensity work with the carries mixed in with some higher intensity work with the cleans and squats.
SCALING

1) Intermediate

Attempt as rx’d today, even if the pace if very slow.

2) Novice

The scales are to: 1) decrease the time to as little as 30 minutes as well as the load on the cleans and reps on the squats for newer or de-conditioned athletes to loads/reps that allow for a consistent pace without much struggle. Option 2) Scale to a partner or 3 person team workout as such:

AMRAP 45-60 minutes

In teams of 2:

Accumulate 17 Power Cleans (one person works at a time)

Accumulate 75 Squats (one person works at a time)

Strip the plates and carry the barbell 200 meters sharing the carry as needed.

Return back to the plates and each person carries a plate to the barbell.
