“A Slow Painful Death”

Performed “Death By…” Style*

Power Cleans (135/95)
Toes 2 Bar

*”Death By” Style is performed by athletes completing one repetition of a movement on the first minute of a workout. And resting until the next minute, then completing the next numerical repetition.  Example, First Minute, perform one repetition, second minute perform two repetitions, third minute perform three, and so on, for as long as the athlete can complete the associated reps

In today’s workout, you will perform two movements in the minute time.  When you can no longer complete both cleans and toes-to-bar, stop doing the toes-to-bar and just continue the rep scheme with the cleans, until the athlete can no longer perform the associated reps.
