For time:

20 power squat cleans 45/65
1 burpee
19 power squat cleans 45/65
2 burpees
18 power squat cleans 45/65
3 burpees
17 power squat cleans 45/65
4 burpees
16 power squat cleans 45/65
5 burpees ...

Continue subtracting 1 PSC and adding 1 burpee per round until you have completed 20 rounds each.  The workout is complete after you have completed your 1 rep round of PSCs and your 20 rep round of burpees in sequence.

Daily Extras - Yeah, right!


Workout Notes: 
 

  • You are ready for this! We've been working on the components of this workout for several weeks. Remember all of those burpees and sore legs? Now it's time to put it all together. 
  • ATTACK THAT YAK!
  • Don't over-do it. 
  • Many refer to Specter as "two faced." You'll see why. It helps to stop for a sec. after 11 & 10, take a deep breath and smile a little. Then PLOW on! 
  • From hungrymotherrunners.com - "Specter is probably the #1 hardest workout, to me, at GPP. It is physically and mentally exhausting. It pushes you to a different level. It humbles you and it is just plain ROUGH."
  • The mental part of this is the only reason I've been posted about it all week. It helps to get your head in the game before this workout. 
  • If your shoulders are smoked from previous workouts, do reverse burpees for all or part of it.
  • If you've never done this before, we forbid you to do all the reps. Soreness factor is very high. Scale reps, rounds, weights, intensity and anything else imaginable to make this workout more manageable.
