6 Clapping Push-ups
9 Goblet Squats
Note: Todays workout is a sequence of five 3:00 minute As Many Rounds As Possible (AMRAP) evolutions on 1:00 rest, and is intended to match the metabolic demands of a boxing match. On the Snatches, perform 3 repetitions with one arm (Athletes choice starting with either right or left, and using either a Kettlebell or Dumbbell) switch hands, and then perform three Snatches with the other arm. Both the Dumbbell and Kettlebell Snatch techniques will be reviewed at the beginning of each class. Hands must clap with body suspended on the toes for the Push-up repetition to count. Modifications for all skills will be taught in the gym. Mens weight is up to 53lb. and womens weight is up to 35lb. This is a great workout that requires a high degree of technical skill and explosiveness. This workout was created by Greg Amundson, George Ryan (CrossFit Striking Subject Matter Expert) and Jeff Martone (CrossFit Kettlebell Subject Matter Expert) with the intention of developing speed, power, coordination and explosive striking-strength for MMA Fighters and Boxers.
