“Each year in the United States Navy, a highly qualified and elite cadre of Sailors are selected and promoted to the join the ranks of Chief Petty Officer. Since 1893, “The Chiefs” have been relied upon by subordinates and superiors alike for their personal example, technical expertise and above all, their unique leadership capabilities. As the induction process for newly selected Chief Petty Officers is now underway throughout the US Navy, we thought it appropriate to inaugurate “The Chief” in honor and recognition of all past and present CPOs. Thanks to them and their families for their self-sacrifice, ability to adapt, tireless dedication to mission and devotion to country.”

Warmup: start this at 10:00
5:00 to go over an empty bar technique practice session

Then 6:00 EMOM to build to about 70% of your clean and jerk

Lift: start this at 23:00
15:00 to find
Clean and Jerk max

Suggested strategy:
Every 2 ish minutes (a bit faster at the beginning, a bit slower at the end)
Jump 5% of your 1rm, starting at 76%
So 76, 81, 86, 91, 96, 101. If you do this right you should pr by a few pounds at about 12:00 of the 15. Then you can have 1 bigger jump attempt at the end to set a crazy pr. 🙂

CrossFit Workout start this at 40:00
“The chief”
3:00 AMRAP, 1:00 rest x 5 rounds
3 power cleans 135/95
6 pushups
9 air squats

Start where you left off when you restart the AMRAP

After class, get on a bike or rower and flush for 10-15 minutes, nice and easy.

Coach’s Note
This one is going to come down to the pushups for most people. I suspect that breaking right from the beginning is going to be a winning strategy for most people. Holding a round every minute will be a good goal for most people. The best scores will probably be in the 25-30 round range.

OOC Lift
Find a snatch max

Same suggested strategy as the clean and jerk
