Time to work off all that Holiday feasting. To help kick things off, Tuesday night got things off to a good “clean” start:
8 x 3 Power Cleans + 2 Jerks
The goal was to go up in weight from set-to-set without dropping the bar betweem the jerks (if possible). This is a tough set-up; the power cleans, especially at heavy weight, really necessitate a lot of hip explosion and shoulder shrug, which in turn strips power from the body prior to the jerks and requires a lot of effort for the jerks.
After everyone’s CNS had been thoroughly taxed, class closed out with a short met-con to see how heavy all those cookies had really left you:
7min AMRAP: 7 burpees, 14 swings (w/ KB or DB), & 21 sit-ups.
Sorry for the lack of pictures – blame it on the post-holiday sugar crash. I’ll be sure to make up for it on Thursday, but until then, let’s get some discussion going: weight on the C&J’s, reps on the met-con, and, most importantly, who got a shake-weight for X-mas???
