400-m Single-Arm Farmers Carry
40 DB Front Squats (50/35 lb.)
30 DB Anchored Sit-ups
20 DB Squat Cleans
400-m Single-Arm Farmers Carry

*Use 1 DB for Squats and Cleans.

It’s a dumbbell bonanza today! We have three hip-driven dumbbell movements that are decreasing in reps, sandwiched between two 400-m Single-Arm Farmers Carries. We are using one dumbbell for all movements, but they will need the second one on hand to use for the anchored Sit-ups. The load used is intended to be light to moderate for the Front Squats and Squat Cleans, and across the 400-m Carries.

While you are fresh, the first 400 m should be done unbroken, with maybe one stop to switch arms. You can even switch as you walk ("“Am I not merciful???”). Once you hit the gym, you should aim to do the Front Squats in one set, maybe two. The same applies for the Sit-ups.

The limiting movement will be the Squat Cleans since you’ll be fatigued at this point, and Dumbbell Squat Cleans just suck in general. :-) Sets of 7+ is a good goal to get through these with quick breaks. The last 400-m Farmers Carry will feel a little different than the first, and you will most likely need to put the dumbbell down a few times since your grip might be taxed after holding it for so long.

Shoot for a finishing time of about 14 min.
