  4. Squat clean and Jerks are not my friend….
    made it to 120#

    Grace RX
    I’ll take that after a week of laying on a beach and drinking beer πŸ™‚

  5. Pool at a cottage at the beach… best of both worlds!

    1RM C &J
    85-85-85-95-105-115 (previous PR) 120 (clean, failed jerk – PR for the Clean)

    Was happy to get the 120 clean. I have been stuck at 115 for over a year. Something crawled into my head and I was finally able to get past it today. I am confident that had I had time to attempt again, I would have had the jerk. I didn’t get my legs wide enough so didn’t get low enough under the bar.

    Grace @ 65#


    This was somehow my first dance with Grace. I am happy with the time, but my biggest accomplishment today was making a plan (5 unbroken reps, step over the bar, turn around and lift again right away – repeat 6 times) and sticking to it from start to finish. I have a bad habit of abandoning my plan when it gets rough. I hit a wall after 15 reps, but dug in and pushed through the remaining 15.

    1. Was it me saying “quit f*cking around and lift it” the thing that crawled into your head? I hope so πŸ™‚

      Great pacing and sticking with it!

    QOD: beach by far – I don’t go to beaches from here but love the beaches in Florida and down south.

    1. QOD: Both. Pool for swimming, but beach for everything else. Sunrise over the water. Sitting and listening to the waves crash into the shore. Feeling the sand squish beneath my toes. I could live at the beach πŸ™‚

  12. Warmup
    Clean and Jerks up to 105lbs. Not squatting…catching the bar with wide legs. Hips need help

    the pool is less prep with kids which is nice, but the beach is where I always want to be.
