Tomorrow – I am doing my 2nd 5k of the spring at the Brambleton Ribbon Run 5K with Team Ashburn CrossFit Impavidus! It’s a great way to get out there, give back for a good cause, and feel like you are a part of something bigger. Try one — you will see what I mean!  Heck, come and join me tomorrow morning bright and early at 730A!

Warmupx2
50 SU/20 DU (I got a few in!)
10 Pass Thrus
10 OHS
10 Push Ups
10 Ring Rows

Skill
Clean & Jerk

WOD
AMRAP 5m
65lb squat clean
65lb jerk
(rx’d for ladies was 115lb — I didn’t do that obviously)
total = 21

Why didn’t I do RX’d? Well — that’s a lot of weight and I have issues with the form of a squat clean. I bend my arms way too early. I want to work on that before diving into heavier weights. And to be real, 65lbs squat clean jerks is still tough although 21 rounds in 5 mins tells me that maybe I should have gone up a bit higher. When my form is off for squat cleans, I tend to muscle it up instead of using the momentum of proper form to get it into the location for a jerk.

Every time I use the word Jerk – there is a little voice inside me that feels like a kid using a bad word. Do you have that same feeling?
