What a beautiful day! I coached the 6 am session, and then Luke and I went for a walk around Lake Pine. As I always have my iPhone with me, I took this awesome picture of Luke.



I worked out with the 8:30 athletes, and it was much fun.

Clean & Jerk
5 reps @ 60, 65, and 70% of 1RM

Reps @ 100, 105, & 115#. The last few reps of the last set began to feel heavy.

101 shoulder to overhead (45)
101 box jump overs (24 30)

Folks were allowed to complete anyway they liked, e.g., in sets, with box steps, presses, push presses, push jerks, etc. I’m always up for a challenge, so I completed all 101 S2O before moving to box jump overs. While I can’t recall the exact amount, I do recall beginning with 25 or strict presses. I completed remaining reps by doing press, push presses, and push jerks. The weight felt light at the start, so much so that I thought I had mistakenly grabbed a 33# bar. The weight felt heavy by the time I did the last set of 15 or so reps. I glanced at the clock and more than three and a half minutes had passed.

I completed 30″ twisting box jump overs. Wow, that was tough. As can be expected, I grunted loudly, as I was breathing heavily. I was one of the last to finish!

I finished the day by traversing the 70′ pull-up rig without my feet touching the ground. I got tangled up in a one of the straps of a ring, and Liz was kind enough to untangle me. I felt like a trapped and released animal!

American ninja, yo.
