As promised, here’s the video of me hitting the 105lb clean and jerk from last week!! Threw my hips forward on the clean, but still caught it solid and the jerk felt pretty good, even though my back knee was barely bent. I really need to start videoing myself so I can critique my movements more. I’ve learned so much just from these two!!
- Clean and Jerk 3-3-3-3: 85-85-90-90. The 90s felt better than the 85s, for sure, but I wore myself out starting with 85. Used elbow cues and tried to sit back into my cleans instead of pushing my hips forward, and they felt smooth and solid.
WOD for Rounds+Reps: 6+6.
7 Minute AMRAP of:
- 1 Hang Squat Snatch: 42lbs, Power Snatch. Because I apparently can’t squat snatch anymore. Shit. Need to work on that.
- 3 Overhead Squats: 42lbs, 4 reps. Since I couldn’t catch my snatch in the squat, I added an extra one. Worst. Idea. Ever. My wrists feel like noodles.
- 5 Ring Pushups: knees. Ha. What a joke. These are insanely difficult.
Yeahhhhhhhhhhhh today was a #justshowup day for me. It’s been a supremely long week, and it’s only Wednesday. Oof. Hopefully Friday will be better. I’m going to try to get some squats in between classes tomorrow since I missed Monday’s 10-10-10. Gunning for solid 3×10 at 100 this week. I always feel weaker at my school’s gym, so we’ll see how that goes..if I can even get in there.
