Workout Description

Set your timer to beep every minute on the minute for 14 min.  When the beep goes start with your DB taps, complete 35 then quickly grab your dumbbells and go into hang power cleans.  Do as many as you can in the remainder of the minute.  Rest for the next min and record your reps.  Work through this arrangement 7 times altogether.  Tally your reps and record your score to wodify.

 

Movements:

Single Under Skips: 1 Rotation of the rope under your feet. Keep feet together and hands close to sides. Move your wrists rather than big arms swings. If you have Double Unders as a skill - use them! If you don't have a rope then toe taps to a single dumbbell is a great sub (2 taps = 1 skip).

DB Hang Power Clean: Begin with your feet hip width apart. Dumbbells are positioned anywhere between the knee and hip and held beside your legs . Send your hips back keeping knees soft, (like you are taking a bow). Chest is up. Core is tight and weight back in the heels. To initiate movement, aggressively stand (think of jumping), squeeze your bum and with a big shrug of the shoulders bring the dumbbells up to rest on your shoulders keeping elbows high, you will come under the dumbbells into a partial squat/dip after you have fully extended your hips. Drive through the heels back to a standing position Rep is completed when the knees and hips are fully locked out and open at the top.

Tips: Think about jumping hard, but not high—you should have a strong thrust with your feet leaving the ground, but you are not trying to see how high you get. The higher you jump the longer the rep takes. Keep arms straight and long; An early arm bend will lessen the contribution of the hips.
