Well, that took longer than two hours…
Oh well, it’s a new era boys and girls – you wanted a max lift, and you got the king. I realized there are a couple things I missed in the video, so I’ll list them here.
1) This one is repeatable, but that means you need to do it Friday/Monday to have any chance of your grip being ready. DO NOT RIP if you plan on a repeat.
2) For those of you who Jerk better after a Power Clean, and have a PC that is a high percentage of your full Clean – I don’t honestly know if you’ll be able to hit a big number with your grip shot. You should be recovered by the 2-3 minute mark, but I dont know what residual effects the 15.1 will have. All I can recommend is to try and see what happens. If anyone has feedback on this please post to comments.
1) Every 90 seconds for 6:00 (5 total sets):
2 Clean & Jerks – (percentages ascend with each set) 1@50%, 2@55%, 3@60%, 4@65%, 5@70%
2) 3 rounds of:
5 Deadlifts 125/85# (slow and controlled)
5 Snatches 125/85# (as close to :15 pace as possible – use this time to practice cycling the bar close to the body)
Rest 1:00 between rounds
3) WORKOUT 15.1
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 9 minutes of:
10 deadlifts (115 / 75 lb.)
5 snatches (115 / 75 lb.)
1-rep-max clean and jerk
6-minute time cap
