Barbell and Burpees

This is a very tough workout to do early in the morning. Lift 105lbs overhead before 6:30am I normally avoid. For some reason I was feeling rested and healthy, so I gave it a go.

With a little mobility and warm up I was able to tackle this workout as planned.
Push through all 15 burpees.
Complete 11 Deadlifts then rest. 8 Hang power cleans then rest, and 6 push-jerks and rest.

By stopping one rep before the next movement gave me a second to breath and make it so I didn’t have to do an additional rep. For example, starting the push-jerks I need to hang power clean the barbell to the rack position for the jerk. Therefor I could stop one rep short and still get all the reps in.

5 rounds every 5 minutes for 25 minutes:
15 Burpees
12 Deadlifts (155/105lbs)
9 Hang Power Cleans (155/105lbs)
6 Push Jerks (155/105lbs)

Score: Completed every round under 3 minutes.

I enjoyed this workout and I was able to complete it becasue I had a little more flexibility with time this morning, which was nice for a change.
