What a beautiful day! I coached the 6 am session, and then Luke and I went for a walk around Lake Pine. As I always have my iPhone with me, I took this awesome picture of Luke.
I worked out with the 8:30 athletes, and it was much fun.
Clean & Jerk
5 reps @ 60, 65, and 70% of 1RM
Reps @ 100, 105, & 115#. The last few reps of the last set began to feel heavy.
101 shoulder to overhead (45)
101 box jump overs (
Folks were allowed to complete anyway they liked, e.g., in sets, with box steps, presses, push presses, push jerks, etc. I’m always up for a challenge, so I completed all 101 S2O before moving to box jump overs. While I can’t recall the exact amount, I do recall beginning with 25 or strict presses. I completed remaining reps by doing press, push presses, and push jerks. The weight felt light at the start, so much so that I thought I had mistakenly grabbed a 33# bar. The weight felt heavy by the time I did the last set of 15 or so reps. I glanced at the clock and more than three and a half minutes had passed.
I completed 30″ twisting box jump overs. Wow, that was tough. As can be expected, I grunted loudly, as I was breathing heavily. I was one of the last to finish!
I finished the day by traversing the 70′ pull-up rig without my feet touching the ground. I got tangled up in a one of the straps of a ring, and Liz was kind enough to untangle me. I felt like a trapped and released animal!
American ninja, yo.
