• 20’s across the board in today’s conditioning piece

• With two barbell movements at the same weight, we’ll choose our loading based on the hang power snatch

• This movement starts from anywhere above the knee and should be a load that you could complete in 2-3 sets during the workout

• Since we have regular box jumps, stand to full extension at the top of each rep

• We can expect to complete around 3+ rounds over the 20 minutes of work
