Max Clean & Jerk

Score: 115# (15# PR!!)

Max Snatch

Score: 75# (10# less than my last PR of 85#)

This time my breathing was an issue just lifting, not even doing a cardio-heavy workout. Boo! Hiss! Down with exercise-induced asthma!!! I went to see my doctor this morning & he prescribed an inhaler & some new meds to deal with the allergies. Hopefully this isn’t something that will continue to be a problem but at least I have some tools to help manage it for now.



Strength: Thruster… complete 1 thruster starting no heavier than 95/65. From there go up in increments of 10 pounds total until you get to your max… do not go any heavier than 185/155.

Score: 105#, a 10# PR. I attempted 115# 3 times but couldn’t get it over my head.

Well. This was deceptively difficult. I sprinted on the rower & then had the HARDEST time doing the box jumps. And I never have a hard time doing box jumps! And then when I attempted my first clean of only 65#, I FAILED. Failed on only 65#. WTH? Never mind that I had just cleaned 115# 3 times! Only made it to rep 13 of the second set of BBJ’s before time was called.

Max Make-Up Day

Over the last couple of weeks we have maxed several lifts…mostly on days when I couldn’t be at the box, so I was VERY happy to have the make up day. I decided to do back squat and shoulder press.

Shoulder Press: 75#

That’s a 15#PR from about a year ago. I’m happy to PR but a little bummed it wasn’t more.

Back Squat: 185#

Sadly, not a PR. My last PR was 190#. I got 185 with no problem & then instead of adding just 5#, I added 10#. I got down but couldn’t get back up so I tried to roll the bar off my back, only my ponytail was in the way and the bar kinda got stuck. It didn’t hurt but it ripped out a wad of my hair and I have some lovely bruising/rash on my back as a result. Not my week for the barbell & my back, I tell you that! So I didn’t attempt it again or go back down to 190.
