We've been spending a lot of time working on cleans lately. They really are a great movement. Strength, speed, and if you're not careful, those little buggers'll gas you right quick! :P
So today we were trying to work up to 85% of our max clean for a 3 rep max. Our WOD looked like this
3 Power clean
3 Front squat
Try to work to 85% of your max.
I got to 85% of my max, but it wasn't pretty. I only got four hours sleep and to be honest, I still couldn't walk right this morning after the WOD on Saturday. So I started out by rowing a 2K (at Jerry's suggestion) to open up my hips and warm-up my leg muscles and kick some of that nasty soreness out. After the row, I felt ok so I got to work on the WOD. Jerry had told me to work light but c'mon. You know I can't resist a heavy lifting day. So I wound up at 117... it seems that in my super sleepy state... I put the 2.5 on one side to make the jump to 120. Yeah, well, about that... I didn't so much remember to put it on the other side. Whoops! Oh come on! Like you've never loaded a bar wrong! And I have an excuse! Well 2, it was 0515 AND I was tired. So :P
Ah yes, the cleaning crew was at it again this morning at 0515.
