back squat 85% for 1 rep
Next min 30 DU

So was 9 reps of 385 BS and 270 DU

Also did an 8 min
3 snatch @ 80% every min

Have replaced with cleans and DL also

Can do 30 on 30 off row sprints and more.

Heck 8 rounds of 85-90% 100 m sprints will smoke you in that moment but not for a whole day.

Good luck and keep it up.
Thanks for the info Shawn! I haven't done rounds of 100m sprints in a few months, killer!

I do like the EMOM stuff and OMEM as well. I'll have to incorporate that. The long metcons leave me too drained. I'll be keeping it shorter/medium and throw in what you've mentioned. Thanks!
Henry: You're not afraid of competition, are you Shawn?
Shawn: Of course not. As long as doesn't involve people trying to best each other.
