Clean Squats are Hard!

I can feel spring in the air. The birds are chirping and let me break out in song —-

Today’s workout was one of the ladies: Elizabeth and at first glance, seems pretty reasonable. Of course all of these ladies seem ok on paper! Then you meet them and you realize, there is a lot more behind their name!

I’m getting more confident with handstands once I really commit — I started off rough but Colleen, a 6a partner in crime, realized I wasn’t leading with my leg — once we fixed that and got close to the wall — I had them no problem!

I started with 75lb for the cleans but halfway into the first set of clean squats, I decided to scale. I couldn’t keep going — so I dropped to 65lbs and continued on with the workout – which was still hard as heck. Cleans don’t look so tough –but they take the wind right out of you!
