For this workout you have to complete 60 overhead squats for time. Here’s the catch: every minute you have to stop what you’re doing and perform 5 hand release push ups. This means that you want to be doing as many squats as you can unbroken so you don’t have to do too many push ups. Five at a time aren’t bad, but will slow your time down for sure.

For time:

60 Overhead Squats (105#/75#)

EMOTM 5 HR pushups

Today you’ll get to take a break from the barbell again and work on some gymnastics and kettlebell work. Kettebell snatches are great for building shoulder and core stability as well as indicate weaknesses in one particular side of the body (if any). Oh yeah, you’ll be running too. Enjoy it while the weather is still nice!

For time:
Run 800m
15 T2B
20 KB snatch 24/16kg
Run 400m
20 T2B
25 KB snatch
Run 200m
25 T2B
30 KB snatch
