Warm-up (No Measure)

“When you have one foot in the past, and one in the future, you piss on the present.” – Dan Harris

It’s fun to think about the future, and it’s easy to dwell on the past.

What is more challenging is to put the thought power into the present – what is directly in front of us. Right now.

Nothing is insignificant. From the most subtle acts at home between family members, to the minor conversation at work. We never know when it’s our last moment.

It’s less of a morbid thought, and more of a recognition of how fast our lives can be. When everything becomes significant, nothing is more important than right now.

Power Clean

On the 2:00 x 5 Sets:

1 Clean Pull

1 Clean High Pull

2 Power Cleans

Set #1 – 50% of 1RM Clean

Set #2 – 55%

Sets #3+4+5 – 60-65%


Our complex today focuses on positioning off the ground

First two reps are pulls, with two power cleans to confirm

Clean Pull – Big shrug, but arms stay extended

Clean High Pull – Arms bend (bar to about heart level)

We do not need to hold onto the bar throughout

Focus here purely is technique, both in how we approach the complex and the loads on the bar



Hurricane (Time)

3 Rounds For Time:

800m Run

21 Power Cleans (155/105)(115/85)


“Hurricane” is a simple, but effective couplet of running and power cleans

The running distance and barbell weight are both designed to be on the moderate side

We expect this workout to take around 20 minutes to complete


The barbell weight today should be a weight you can ‘touch and go’ for 12+ reps

Within the workout, you’ll likely opt for either singles or a mix or ‘touch and go’ and singles


If unable to run outside, choose one of the following:

600 Meter Air Runner or Trueform

1,600 Meter Bike Erg

1,000 Meter Row

80/60 Calorie Schwinn Bike

60/45 Calorie Assault Bike or Echo Bike



With 1.5 miles of running in today’s workout, the runs matter quite a bit

We can think of these as 6 x 400 meter splits

The difference of 10 seconds across the 6 splits could mean the difference of going a whole minute faster or a whole minute slower (Example: Holding 1:50 vs. 2:00)

Let’s hold a moderate pace on the run that you see yourself being able to hold for around 18-20 minutes (or around a 5k pace)

After finishing the power cleans, take the first 100 meters to recover before trying to settle back in to your workout pace


With a moderate barbell, singles will definitely be the safest and most consistent option across the 3 rounds of work

However, coming off the runs, you may be able to open up with a bigger set of ‘touch and go’ reps before moving to singles

This initial set after each run can help you chip away at almost 1/3 of the reps in one shot

For Example: You could complete 7 ‘touch and go’ reps before immediately moving to 14 quick singles

Another option is to complete a mix of ‘touch and go’ sets and singles, with the singles serving as the “”recovery”” for you ‘touch and go’ reps

For Example: To get to 21 reps, you could complete 3 sets of: 3 ‘Touch and Go’ + 4 Singles

Overall here, the goal is to choose an option that allows you to stay moving forward


Chad (Time)

For Time

1000 box step ups (20″)

45#/35# ruck sack
