Also known as Clean & Jerk Madness, this workout can be done with just about any movement, and we’ve previously programmed it here with pull-ups, burpees, and 10 yard sprints. The weight should be challenging, but manageable. Move as quickly as possible through each round and there’s a little extra rest waiting for you before the next set begins. Although this one starts slow and easy, don’t be deceived. There will come a point at which it will suddenly seem very difficult to get the next rep. This is the time to dig in and push for a little more, you just need to know you can.

With a continuously running clock perform 1 clean & jerk in minute 1, 2 clean & jerks in minute 2, 3 clean & jerks in minute 3… etc. until the required number of clean & jerks cannot be completed within a minute
