I’m such a sucker. I always end the workout saying I don’t need to do it again. Then 12 hours later I have my new strategy all geared up. It wasn’t that bad of a workout that I can’t redo it, so why not?
9 min AMRAP
10 DL 75#
5 snatches 75#
6:00 to find 1rm clean and jerk
15.1 - 155 reps RXd (5+5)
15.1a - 160#
My goal was between 5 and 6 rounds, so I can’t complain. I thought I would have gotten a little farther into round 6 though.
TTB were the limiter of course. I did 9-6, 6-5-4, 5-5-5, 5x3, 5x3, 3-2. I planned to break up round 1 just like that even though I can do 15 unbroken. I think In take 2 I would do 6-5-4 from the start. My first round was 1:04 — too fast. Need to pace better, and I think I can hit 165 reps. That’s the new goal.
DL were easy and unbroken. Took 5 seconds and did the snatches tng.
15.1a was amazing! What a way to end the workout!
I came off 15.1 on a high. Adrenaline pumping. I changed my weights, stayed in my Nanos, and waited 90 seconds before my first lift.
135-145-155-160 and then dropped the 165 clean with 8 seconds left. It slipped right out of my hands.
Let’s talk about this one for a second. Previous 1rm clean and jerk = 150. Previous 1rm power clean = 150. And I’ve never jerked 160 from the front rack before. I am SO pumped. I power cleaned all my lifts because I had that much crazy adrenaline (lots of pulling power).
135 felt really light starting out, so for the next go I’m going to start with 145. Then do 155-160-165. Really 4 solid lifts is all you have the time for. I went just about every minute after my initial rest. I’ll be happy to still get 160 again, but 165 would be really nice.
Congrats to all you badasses out there that did it last night also! I read your recaps and you’re all rock stars. Good luck to anyone going today or this weekend!
