Workout Description

Set your timer to count up.  At the 3,2,1 go start with 7 Hang Power Cleans then 7 Push Press and finally 7 Burpee over DB.  Rest 1 min between rounds, this rest is included in your time except on the final round.  Complete 3 rounds and record your time to wodify.

 

Movements:

DB Hang Squat 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 full squat 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.

DB Hang Power Clean: Same as above but land in partial squat (above parallel)

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.

Dumbbell Push Press: Starting with your feet set at hip-width, elbows slightly in front of the dumbbells, dumbbells resting on shoulders. Keep your body vertical as hips and knees flex into a small dip. Stand aggressively, squeezing your bum as hips fully extend, then arms press overhead - watch for early pressing (wait until you squeeze your bum!). Heels remain down until hips and knees extend. Complete at full hip extension and arms locked out overhead (biceps beside ears!)

Burpee over DB: Standing side on to your dumbbell, throw both feet behind you (or step down) landing on the floor on hands with chest and thighs both contacting the floor. Jump both feet (or step) forward towards your hands keeping as low as possible to the ground and perform a two footed jump (or step) over your dumbbell.
