WOD July 6th: Easy Peasy Power Cleans

06 Jul

Today’s class got to have an intensive look at their power cleans.

We started off with some easy PVC work and then gradually moved our way up to a 1 RM attempt.

Strength: 1RM Power Clean


The rule was, as soon as one rep failed or looked questionable, you were done.

From there we rested up a bit with some double under practice to warm up for the WOD.


15 mins, EMOM

2 Power Cleans @ 70% 1RM of the day

15 Double unders.

Nothing too hard, as long as you can string double unders together. The problem is, as soon as you start getting a bit fried from the power cleans, your double unders suffer. Which means you have less rest before your next power clean. It’s a vicious cycle really.

Luckily, everyone seems to have a pretty decent ability with double unders, so suffering was kept to a bare minimum.

Well done, and I’ll see you all on Sunday for a 9:30 and 10:30 AM WOD. Right?

Arbitrary Awards.

“The Pro” To Carolyn. Carolyn spends way too much time working hard and hanging out with Tom Henry. She finished each round with at least 20 seconds to spare.

“To clean or to curl” To Tom. Tom is such a beast that even when he power cleans fluidly, he can move a 100KG bar like he’s doing reverse curls for fun. Scary.

“The walking wounded” To the 6PM class. The poor guys came in for a nice easy workout, and them spent 15 minutes afterwards testing out the amazing and fun new way to mash your quads. I’m sure the neighbors could hear it.
