  1. WU x 2
    Strength: OHS x5 45-50-55-65-75

    Death by Clean and Jerk 105#
    7 Rounds 6 Reps

    Thanks to Kevin for explaining the right grip for OHS. I was doing it wrong because it was really hurting the wrist. After, with the right grip, it didnโ€™t hurt as it did before. So now I can progress the right way and prevent any potential serious injury with heavier OHS.

    Death buy cleans and jerks #65

    Very happy about the 15# PR, plus my hip flexer wasn’t bothering me!! Didn’t get to far on the WOD, this confirms my poor form on the cleans & jerks.

    Wanted that last (9th) rep so bad but just ran out of time! I liked the vibe of this WOD and how it gradually sneaks up on you then slaps you in the face! Strength felt really good today too.
