It’s always good to work on cleans under Sara’s watchful eye! I didn’t go too heavy, worked up to 58# during the 10 minutes, and started there for the sets, then went down to 53# because I felt a little hip twinge.
I haven’t been getting a good “scarecrow” position recently, the bar has been coming too far forward on cleans and snatches recently — I think tight/crunchy shoulders may be partly to blame. I also focused on trying to launch the bar from higher on my thigh, as usual. I think I’m starting to improve on that.
I have a bad habit of underestimating the “NFT Finishers”. It’s not a metcon, so how bad could it be? So foolish! I worked with Ann and used the 15# plate. The first 5 reps were easy, then got expotentially tougher until I was struggling and had to rest a little during sets.
