Too many cleans! I had little choice but to complete the workout this morning. Yup, I was still sore from last night’s Barbell Club. I’m reluctant to count how many cleans I’ve completed in the past 12 hours.

Snatch Grip Deadlift (5 reps @ 60, 65, & 70% of 1RM)

De-load is delightful. I completed easy sets @ 170, 185, & 200#. I’m looking forward to next Friday!

PC-M: Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

15-min AMRAP
1 squat clean (135/)
1 pull-up
2 squat cleans
2 pull-ups
3 squat cleans

This is Level II of the Lurong Pale Challenge. Level I was muscle ups (Yay!) and 185# squat cleans (Boo!).

Uhm, things did not start of well. Uhm, I missed the very first clean, stupidly attempting power instead of full squat clean. I quickly completed full squat clean and pull-up. I then very stupidly attempted yet another power clean. And failed. That was the last attempt at a power clean, and I completed all remaining reps as full squat cleans.

Sh!t got heavy very fast. The pull-ups were a welcome relief. I completed all rounds unbroken.

I completed all cleans one at a time. One. Atta. Time.

I yelled loudly as I stood up from each and every squat. Each. Ande’ry. Squat.

With time running out, I missed the 6th rep of the set of 10. I glanced at the clock, made sure that I rested, and completed the rep. I may have had time for another rep, but I was done.

I completed 9 rounds + 6 reps for a total of 96.

That was tough!
