We’re tackling two Games workouts today: the Clean Speed Ladder and the Midline March.
During the Clean Speed Ladder, the athletes had to race through 5 squat cleans of increasing weight. The top finishers moved on to two more rounds where the weights got even higher. The female weights started at 155 and progressed to 225. The male weights started at 245 and progressed to 345.
Since we don’t have the equipment to have 2 dozen barbells step with progressively heavier weight, so we’re going to do 3 speed rounds of 5 squat cleans and increase the weight between rounds.
If maintaining good form on the squat clean didn’t smoke your core enough, then rest assured you’ll feel the burn during the next workout.
Here’s how the pros did on the Midline March. Annie Thorsdottir was the top female finishing in 6:34. 18 women did not finish. Rich Fronning led the men with a time of 5:25, and 5 men did not finish.
