A Couple of Jerks:
This is an old WOD from the main site that has made numerous appearances over the years. It is traditionally supposed to include squat cleans over power cleans, but like Grace and Isabel the several posts I found never clearly specify squat for power so for our purposes it’s any type of clean and push jerk or split jerk. Maybe next time this will be squat clean and jerks only.
I did this WOD once in my garage and not as RX’d as I adjusted the weight. My notes from this said “Massive Suck! Makes Grace seem easy. Fought like Hell each set to not give up.” Reading that strangely made me want to program it in. Then I started it today and reached ten reps and thought “Oh shit, why did I program this in?”
Special thanks to Jeremy D. for running the 7pm class tonight. We owe you!

Moe is on vacation in CA and has been dropping in at Mike’s Gym for Oly LIfting workouts. She also met up with Coach Burgener (CrossFit Olympic Lifting and USA Weightlifting Coach). Too cool!
