Cleaning Up

Feeling good today after getting a good night’s sleep in my own bed. Went in at 10am for another Kevin WOD.


4 Rounds

  • 15s Jumping Jacks
  • 15s Mountain Climbers
  • 15s Air Squats
  • 15s Lateral Hops

Olympic Lifting

Find 1RM Clean & Jerk

  • 2 @ 135#
  • 165#
  • 185#
  • 205#
  • 225# (missed the jerk)

Felt pretty good so I went for it on my last attempt. After catching the clean I sat in the bottom of the squat for at least a second or two and felt like I nearly choked myself. I powered through the squat, which is only 10# below my last 1RM in the front squat. Set myself up for the jerk, but the clean took a lot out of me. I’ve only done 205# once in the jerk and never even attempted 225#, so confidence probably played a bit into the miss too. Next time! That was another 10# PR in the clean over the 215# that I just hit last weekend.


10:00 EMOTM

  • Power Clean
  • Hang Power Clean & Jerk
  • 20 Lateral Bar Hops

After finding the 1RM we used 70% of that so I went with 155# on the bar. Tried to concentrate on keeping my shoulders back and using good form in all of the cleans.

Plate Shuttle

2 Rounds

  • 25# – 35# – 45#
    • 50y Weighted Run with a plate
    • 50y Sprint back
  • 45# – 35# – 25#
    • 50y Sprint
    • 50y Weighted Run bringing the plate back

It was only 35 degrees outside, but it didn’t take long to warm up and not even think about cold.


12:00 AMRAP

  • 10 MB Sit-ups (20# MB)
  • 10 MB Cleans (20# MB)
  • 10 Russian KBS (44# KB)

I did 7 rounds plus the 10 sit-ups and 9 of the cleans.

Really good WOD today with a lot of different work packed into the hour.
