On the Power Cleans I want you to build to a heavy 3. You don’t have to perform these as touch and goes, but don’t waste a lot of time resetting yourself after each rep. On the box step up choose a box height where your thigh is around parallel to the ground. Place one foot on the box with a slight bend in your back knee. Upon execution, drive the knee from your rear leg towards your chest, finishing with a vertical torso. Hit all reps on one side before transitioning to the other. The whole point behind this is that we are developing our sprint mechanics and developing power in the movement.
For the Med Ball work, you can find a movement video on YouTube. We’re pairing some lateral movement with power development in the transverse plane.
For our engine work, I used an Atlas Stone. You can also use a sandbag in the front carry. Go heavy on the Farmers Carry and make it challenging.

Hey guys, I'm Brian. I've been in the military around 11 years at this point in 11 and 18 series jobs. I started Modern Athlete Strength Solutions not just to give it the cool nickname of MASS, but to provide free strength and conditioning training to those that want to cut through the BS, not pay $100 for a generic program, and develop their athleticism through qualified S&C coaches. I am also the Executive Director at Operation RSF, a 501c3 non-profit that provides education and community initiatives on how fitness benefits mental health.
