Week #2 in our progression. Last week, we climbed towards a heavy single. Today, we're after volume, versus absolute. The first four sets are completed "On the 2:00", then we transition to seven sets of singles "On the 1:00".
Max "Macho Man" Complexes (R+ 225/155, Rx 185/125)
1 Round of "Macho Man" is:
3 Power Cleans
3 Front Squats
3 Push Jerks
*In this effort, we have 2 x 3:00 windows to accumulate max reps of the ladder complex. Wherever you finish the first 3:00, that will be your start for the second interval.
In other words, if we finish with 2 power cleans on the first round of 185/125 barbell, we'll rest 3:00, and then begin our second interval starting with the third power clean of that same bar. You are allowed to pick up in the middle of a round, it doesn't have to be a fully completed round. Macho Man" sets do not have to be completed unbroken.
***We will be repeating this benchmark at the end of the training cycle.
