WOD Guidance:
Today we have a two part workout, where part 1 is a strength piece and part two is a lightning fast barbell conditioning piece. Today our coach’s focus is likely going to be the nuances associated with cycling a push jerk. Generally, the heavier the weight on the bar, the more slow and methodical we’re going to have to be about moving through our reps. I like to think about three categories of weights: 1) weights where I can cycle multiple reps without taking a breath, 2) weights where I need to breathe at the top only, but I have to breathe every rep, and 3) weights where I have to breathe at the bottom of every rep. When we’re doing our heavy complex, we will most likely be breathing at the bottom of the rep so that we have maximum control of the weight during the dip and drive of the push jerk. When we are cycling the barbell inside the workout, we’ll likely be doing two or three reps on one breath, and also resting at the top rather than the bottom. This reflects the light to moderate weight that we should be shooting for for todays workout.
