8 minute EMOM/AMRAP:
Partner 1 will row 10 calorie every minute on the minute
Partner 2 will amrap snatches 115#/80# for open 85#/60# for scaled with the remaining time from the row. One bar per team so plan accordingly, only one partner can work at a time, partner 2 must stop snatching at the start of every minute so partner 1 can do 10 calorie row. You may switch partners during the WOD but remember there is only one bar per pair.
Men - 6 minute to establish a 1RM Pull Up.
Immediately following, 2 minute AMRAP of Air Squats
Women - Box Jump Obstacle Course
*12 minute time cap*
Hang Squat Cleans 135#/95# for open
Wall Walk penalty for dropping the bar
*The bar must be held for the entire time you both are working*
Partner 1 will complete 2 reps, Partner 2 will complete 2 rep, Partner 1 will complete 4, Partner 2 will complete 4 and so on.
The wall walk penalty reps will correspond with the reps you were on with the hang squat clean. Example: If you drop the bar on the set of 6, the pairs need to complete 6 total and reps can be broken up however they want between the two partners, gameplan wisely.
Women - 6 minutes to establish a 1RM Push Press (NOT Push Jerk)
Immediately following, 2 minute AMRAP of Kettlebell Swings 16kg
Men - Box Jump Obstacle Course
