Ice Breaker

Part One

AMRAP 9:
10 Hang Squat Snatches (75/55)
30 Double-Unders

5:00 Rest

Part Two

On the Minute x 9:
“X” Thrusters (95/65)
“X” CTB Pull-Ups
“X” Barbell-Facing Burpees

Level 1 – 5 Repetitions
Level 2 – 4 Repetitions
Level 3 – 3 Repetitions

Stimulus wise, we are looking for each and every round to be unbroken on the Thrusters without question. We want a load that is challenging metabolically, but not to the point where we need to break it up due to lungs, or legs (conditioning, or strength).
On the CTB Pull-Ups, we want to choose a level as well that we are very, very confident we could complete the first 5 rounds unbroken with. If we break the repetitions once for a very brief moment, this is of course acceptable, understanding that the aim for the rounds is to be done by the :45s mark.
On the barbell-facing burpees, we are looking for our most efficient footwork. We naturally are moving with good speed here, but not to the point where we are wasting energy with extra steps or movement.
