    Kept it at 95 to not compromise form too much

    Thanks for all the tips kathy

    Butterfly practice: 5 OTMx10
    These feeling much better! Fun!

  13. Tricia D

    Great photos!

    Have to post this – my daughter is learning about nutrition this week in preschool (of course entirely different than our nutrition :). I saw on the board today they had asked her what her favorite healthy food is – next to her name it says “chicken wings.” This would be the paleo buffalo chicken wings we have on Fridays. Love this kid.

  14. Clean complex: followed Ho’s lead today. 135# across…worked form on jerks so kept it light. Picked up lots of good cues from Kevin and Harry today. Time well spent.

    3 Rounds of:
    30 Cals on Airdyne
    30 Cals Rowing
    30 DUs
    400m Run

    Goat work: 10 x 5 T2B. Working on kip.

  15. Big Clean Complex

    115,135, 145, 155, 165, 165

    Worked on Split Jerk 135 4X

    Thanks Nancy and Renee for letting the only guy in 9:30 join. You both pushed hard. Well done.

  16. 85-110#, but failed the jerk. Then I failed the clean at 110# when I tried to redo. Practiced keeping arms locked until pockets in backroom. Work to be done.

    • Amy Brooks

      You still rock. And I used our video to help teach kids what a clean was!

  17. clean complex- 135,155,185,205,215

  18. Did this one at a box I coach at… making my way back to CFNE soon!!! But for now, I`ll live vicariously through your WODS.

    120#, 125#, 130#, 135#, 140#, failed at 145#-cleaned it, squatted it, couldn`t jerk it :(. Next time! :)

  19. Jonathan

    Clean Complex: 135#
    5 Rounds:
    5 Wall squats
    10 GHDSU
    20 Shoulder Taps

  20. Clean Complex: 155,165,175,185,195 failed jerk.

  21. Clean Complex – 115# to 160# (failed jerk 165)

    should have focused on valsalva during failed jerk, indicator was elbows dropping into press too early because column was not strong.

  22. Kristin B.

    Clean complex: 95# to 135#

  23. Nicole D

    Clean Complex: 95, 100, 105, 110, 115

  24. Clean complex: 135, 155, 175, 195, 215, then a 225 pull for dramatic effects…

    Great working with you Steve.
