18.2 DB Squats, Bar Facing Burpees

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 reps of
DB Squats (35# DB scaled)
Bar Facing Burpees (step up OK, scaled)

12 minute time cap for 18.2 and 18.2a

18.2a 1RM clean

I did this workout scaled and it was a doozy.  Despite a long warm-up and a good rest before the first rep, I was huffing and puffing right out of the gate.  I paced well and started stepping up on my burpees on the the round of 3 reps.  I quickly realized that I would not get to the clean and just focused on keeping moving.  I was breaking the squats into sets of 2 or 3 and resting at the top.

I ended up finishing the 9th round, but could not start the 10th.  As far as reps go that would be 90 reps.  I felt pretty good about the effort and was done when the clock stopped.  I think setting up a 115# clean (with 2 extra 10# plates on hand for my second attempt) was optimistic.  I would have been lucky to put up a 95# clean.

It was a really good sprint workout and I am sure the elites made a mockery of it.
