A fun hero workout on deck today! This workout is 5 rounds with a 2-minute rest between rounds. The power cleans are intended to be done with a heavy load. You should be moving this barbell in singles and challenging yourself with weight. The 200-meter run should be done at a hard pace. Lastly, the kettlebell snatch is intended to be done with a moderate load that allows to complete all 10 reps unbroken on each side. The designated rest in this workout is quite a bit so take this time to focus on recovery.
