Anyway, the clean and jerk is one of my favorite moves. It focuses on moving an object from the lowest point possible (ground) to the highest point (straight over head). It's really a full body workout while dialing in your focus, strength, stability, and speed.
Today's WOD consided of 3 rounds of the following, at a rep count of 15-12-9.
- Clean and Jerk (115#)
- Pull Up's
The technique for the day was the back squat.. 5 Rounds and 3 reps each. I suck at back squats but remembered when the days when the bar brought me to my knees (45lbs). I did 115, 135, 135, 145 and 155. Jason was there to push me to 155, which not to long was slight under my 1 rep max.
It was a good day at the Box....
