(As Many Rounds and Reps as Possible in 20 Min)

200 M Burden run
7 Clean and toss over box.

Score: Total Number of Completed Rounds + Any Additional Reps
Goal: 7 + rounds

To pace this workout, set yourself up to maintain sub-3 minute rounds. That may mean reducing the load of the bag if possible, switching the burden run to 100m or a normal 200m run, or going doing 5 reps of the clean & toss over instead of 7. Try a practice round in your warm up and adjust as needed so that in the workout you stay consistent with your choices!

For the burden run, clean and jerk the sandbag onto your back rack so it's on your shoulders with your hands holding it on both sides.

As you run, keep your chest up and eyes forward. Take smaller steps to reduce the impact on your knees and back.

For power clean & toss over, the sandbag will start on the ground. Feet under the hips roughly. Knees are bent, sandbag is close to the body, chest is up, arms are straight. Stand by driving the heels down and lifting the chest. Stand up hard and fast (jump) SHRUG the shoulders. Shoot the elbows around and forward FAST to get the sandbag on the biceps with the elbows high. As you shoot the elbows around you will pull yourself under into a partial front squat. Throw the bag over a box, bench, or racked barbell to complete the rep.
