Today is our first go around with the clean and jerk so keep it light and keep it pretty. Because we will eventually work our way towards a 1RM and we need to get used to catching weight in the bottom of a squat, the clean must be a squat clean into a jerk.
The reps do not have to be touch and go but the 5 reps must be completed fairly quickly while maintaining and focusing on proper form.
The metcon is designed to be heavy so scale it to around 70-80%. The goal is 3-5 rounds.
