Clean and jerk X 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
These are the boards that made my day!!!
Ah, yes... another strength day... :) I missed the last two times that we did max clean and jerks and I have been itching to get this workout in. So, when I woke up, I was debating after the few adult bevies that I had last night whether or not I really wanted to go in. Well, when I saw this up on our site, I knew that I had to go. I was STOKED to hit this. Have I mentioned that I REALLY love strength days? No I mean, REALLY? :)
I was determined today to be aggresive with my jumps and be smart and not waste time doing too much warming up, which I think has been a problem for me in past workouts. So today I just went for it. I jumped right in at 65, not really bothering with 35 or 55. The fun today looked like this.
I was so frustrated that I couldn't get up 137 but honestly, 135 was a new clean record, although not a new jerk record. I was really pleased with the day today. It really isn't important, but nonetheless it feels kind of cool to know that I now own the clean and jerk record at CFOT. It's nice to be good at something. :) Woot! I heart strength work! :) Until tomorrow... the feast is mine. Yikes and away! :)
