Complete in 10:00 or less.
Chest-to-bar pull-ups done in under 5:00.

Consider a push press for the shoulder-to-overhead and then move to the jerk if you tire and still need to hang on to the bar.

This workout tests your capacity to keep moving under fatigue and to hold onto the bar, both pull-up bar and barbell!
Aim to complete the chest-to-bar pull-ups in less than 5:00. If that’s not doable, scale to chin-over-bar or ring rows to avoid getting hung up on them.
Complete 7-12 reps before putting the barbell down, and then, just very short rest periods.
This workout is meant to test/build capacity on the bar. Don’t strategize the shoulder-to-overhead. Instead, try to complete each set unbroken or the largest set possible.
Pre-workout we will build to a heavy 3-rep shoulder-to-overhead over the course of 5 sets. Ideally, you’re jerking this weight as that will get the biggest load overhead.
