Metcon (Weight)

3 sets NOT for time:
10 Bench Press
10 Strict Pull Up
10 Standing Single Arm DB Press (5/5)
10 Bent Over Barbell Row

This is more about quality movement than speed. That doesn't mean you can sit on the bench and chat for 5 minutes between each set. move through with purpose. Ideally a new movement every :90 or so. Partner up with someone or two with similar weights in mind. We will try to have a light, 2 medium, and 1 heavy station for the bench press and bent over row to minimize equipment on the floor.

Each movement should be tough. Modify accordingly to maintain desired stimulus. Record last set of bench press.

Power Snatch (8 x 2)

8 sets of 2, EMOM style. Start at a moderatrely tough load and build slightly IF FORM ALLOWS. 16 pretty reps at 65% is better than 16 sloppy reps @ 75%.
Remember, the snatch is one of the most difficult movements you will learn in CrossFit. It will take time to become proficient in this. Post last set.

STRENGTH

Back Squat (3 x 10)

This is the final week gang, lets finish STRONG!
3 sets of 10 at the same weight across, ideally with a 5-10 lb increase from last week. If that is not possible, stay at last weeks weight. We would rather see 3 x 10 @ the same weight from last week opposed to an increase that only allows 7 reps each set. 30 solid reps is the goal.

METCON (Time)

21-15-9
KB Goblet Box Step Up 24/20"  53/35
Toe to Bar

Rx + = 70/53

Alternate the box step ups. Hold the KB in the front rack like a goblet squat, not on your shoulders. This is a relative "sprint" so select a weight that allows for minimal breaks.
Cap = 8 minutes

Back Squat (3 x 10 @ 10/5 lbs heavier than last week)

Week 2 of our Back Squat cycle. Last week we established a baseline of sorts with our 3 x 10. Today we should add 10lbs for men and 5lbs for women to last weeks weights. Ideally, we will maintain this progression as we move through the cycle. All 3 sets should be the same weight.

Metcon (AMRAP - Rounds and Reps)
