"Grace"

30 Clean and Jerks for time
135, 85 or an otherwise appropriate weight.

Beginners who were not confident with the clean and jerk worked on the movement with a PVC and light weight. Technique before intensity.


Skills:

After class we had "open training" for an hour so the athletes could work on whatever skills they wanted to develop.

Remember that tomorrow night is our first Monday night class at 7pm. All are welcome to attend free of charge!

"Grace"

3:47 with 85#

PR with 95# is 5:00. 10# makes a big difference.

UGH! I've been waiting for a good sunday lifting class and the one week i couldn't make it you decide to do grace. I bet next week when i can make it to class, we'll do tabata's. looks like fun, wish i could've made it.

Don't worry P$, we did tabata too, so hopefully we got that out of our systems....

7:22 @ 65lb.

despite nailing myself in the face on my 4th rep, and feeling like i wasn't quite cleaning properly, i enjoyed my first grace!

great job everyone - hope to see you all tonight!

Stephanie,

I know the feeling but your clean and jerks looked great! And I've found the crack in the face really drives home the fundamentals of getting your face out of the way of the bar. I did it once and hopefully won't be doing it again.

1st Grace-5:22 at 95#Definitely need to work on form. and get comfortable. Thank you Margie, Allison and the rest for guilting me into doing this instead of staying David's (awesome) form clinic. Someimes you gotta just get in there and do the d*mn thing.

Getting to work skills after was awesome.

See folks tonight! Bring friends (and enemies)!

Thanks for all of the cheering...didn't know if I was going to make it through my very first Grace. You guys rock!

Michele, great work! I know how you felt. About rep 5 I was like 'oh man!' Loved how you banged those last few out.

And Jeremy, if you're reading this we (margie, dave, allison) didn't get to say goodbye yesterday. You just disappeared. Best of luck out in Cali! Wow them with your feats of strength and lightning quick bear crawl. I'd hire you for sure! Safe travels man.
