Friday 8.7: Cleans and jerks

Friday. Emom x 15: cleans. Emom x 15: jerks.

It was the first time in 10 days I got my hands on a barbell. I was like a little kiddo! I've been doing metcons after the little girl was born but the heaviest weights have been 25kg dumbbells. Bodyweight stuff, wall balls, rings and db's.

  • Every minute on the minute x 15 minutes
  • 1-5min: 3 cleans @ 80kg
  • 6-10min: 2 cleans @ 90kg
  • 11-15min: 1 clean @ 100kg
Had no idea how it would feel like moving a barbell around. I had a short time slot to hit a session so I took very short warm-up, took couple of cleans at 60 and 70kg's, then started the timer. Went 15 minutes of cleans, then 2 minutes of recovery before the latter emom workout of jerks.

These felt pretty good all the way. Hips were a bit tight as they have not been activated that much lately. But the barbell moved nicely, no matter if it was 80kg or 100kg. Got a chance to tape the lifts so take a look below.

  • Every minute on the minute x 15 minutes
  • 1-5min: power clean + 5 push jerks @ 60kg
  • 6-10min: power clean + 3 push jerks @ 70kg
  • 11-15min: power clean + 1 push jerk @ 80kg
Plan was to do jerks as well. Just to get used to moving some loads. Went touch'n'go without resting on front rack. Felt great to throw the bar overhead.
