CF Open 11.3 again

Mon, 02/04/2013 - 12:58 -- jking1224

Today (Mon Feb 4, 2013) at MBS we did a repeat of the workout from two years ago.

As many reps as possible in 5 minutes of:

165 squat clean & jerk.

Back in 2011 ( see the results [ HERE ] ), I scaled to 85# and I segmented the squat clean. That is, I did a power clean, stood it up, then did a front squat. Then I did the jerk overhead.

Olympic Lifting Total

Sat, 02/19/2011 - 15:00 -- Jeff

On Sat, Feb 19, 2011 we held an Olympic Weightlifting meet at MBS.

Olympic Weightlifting is one of the oldest sports in the Olympics. It is composed of two events: the Snatch, and the Clean & Jerk. There are formal rules on what constitutes a good lift, a timing clock, judges, etc.

The athlete gets three attempts at the Snatch and three attempts at Clean & Jerk.

On this day my attempts were:
85 lbs - Good
95 lbs - Fail. substantial press out at the top
95 lbs - Good. PR
