“Bear”
5 sets of:

7 rounds of the sequence:
Power Clean
Front Squat
Push Press
Back Squat
Push Press

Rest as needed between each of the five sets.  Add weight each set as you would a lifting set.  Record load for each of the five sets (35 reps per set).  Setting the bar down is or resting on the ground is considered a failed set.  Athletes can combine movements as long as the full range of motion is completed for each lift.  The front squat and push press may be combined into a thruster; however, the power clean not be turned into a squat clean and lead directly into the thruster.
