30 Clean and Jerk (135#/95#)
Post Grace complete Max Effort 400m Run
“Grace” is heavy. It’s quick (relatively speaking). It’s tough. And it’s surprising. Even though it’s 30 reps, with a heavy Clean and Jerk at high intensity it can tax you completely. Scaling down to a heavy enough weight that is challenging to pull off the floor will still work you and leave you wondering at about rep 15 if you are going to make it to 30. This WOD can push you quickly to the brink of muscle failure in only a few minutes. Judging from the screaming coming from outside tonight Sherry and Michelle certainly almost found that point as they stormed their way through. Congrats to all who PR’d and to all who did this one for the first time. If you went a little lighter than you wanted to don’t worry, we will all get a re-match for sure.
The lululemon trunk show is this Friday. You should have received the evite with all the gory details so look forward to some fun, goal setting, and shopping while ditching your significant other at home.
