They don't call it "The Bear" for nothing.
Warm Up: Today's push ups variation is the bridge push ups, which is a great variation to warm the wrists up for Olympic lifting.
3 Rounds (For range of motion, not for time):
- 1 Skin the Cat
- 8 Bridge Push Ups
After three rounds of the above circuit, do the Burgener Warm Up.
Skin the Cats should be all the way up and over, and then unwind in a controlled motion back to the starting position. Try and keep your legs straight and feet together with toes pointed. Click on each exercise name for a video of them. If you can't do Skin the Cats, hang in the bottom position of a ring dip for 5 seconds per rep. Bridge Push Ups should be as high as possible with a 1-2 second pause at the top.
Power Clean 1rm. Compare to 9.27.10.
Every minute, on the minute, for 12:00:
- 3 Reps of The Bear using 50% of your max power clean for the day.
- 5 Sit Ups
Assess a 5 burpee penalty at the end for every round not completed in the 1:00 time frame. The Bear is a barbell complex where one rep is:
- 1 power clean
- 1 front squat
- 1 push press
- 1 back squat
- 1 behind the neck push press.
Do all of these in a row for one rep, repeat all of them in a row for reps two and three. Try to do them all without setting the barbell down. The sit ups will be your rest period.
