 HELL YES REGI---PR 155#


Take 20 Minutes to get to your 1RM Split Jerk

then...

AMRAP in 7 Minutes
25 Double Unders
2 Bar Muscle Ups

Coaches Notes:
 The AMRAP is meant to be FAST, if 25 DU's will take you over a minute, consider scaling back to less reps to have a faster cycle time (i.e 15 reps or use attempts).  Bar Muscle Ups can be scaled from a box to a high bar or a racked bar closer to the ground.
