WOD: Clean Complex

3 Position Clean + Push Press

3 Position Clean + Split Jerk
The three positions are from the top down; 1 – High Hang, 2 – Above Knee, 3 – The Floor. After the clean from the floor do a push press. Then repeat the 3 pos clean and do a push jerk and then another 3 position clean plus a split jerk. This equals 1 set. Rest as needed and complete 4 more sets, climbing up in weight every set.
