Masters Qualifier Workout 3 is a Grip-a-palooza. On the DU, hospital if you squeeze the handles, think about relaxing your grip an letting your wrists do the work. At 15 Chest to Bar Pullups, I strongly recommend breaking early and often. Sets of 3-5 with 5 seconds rest will keep you moving, but may keep boner arms at bay. But USE THE CLOCK. Your counting seconds to rest is a liar. I know mine is.
Finally, on the Hang Cleans, the hook grip is essential. I will do everything I can to keep these unbroken. Experience tells me this is the “easy” part of the workout. It’s not too heavy and will go by pretty quick if you stick to what you know how to do.
Workout of the Day
3 Position Clean

Work this for 15 minutes. We will do a lot of this in the coming weeks and months.
This is not quite the position 1, 2 and 3. It is more like 1.5, 2 to 2.5 and 3. At the second position, you may work from above or below the knee.
