Never cleaned a 95# nuthin’… till now

I hit a PR tonight.

I worked on hang power cleans before doing a “retest” workout.  I surprised myself.  I  hang cleaned 95#… twice.

Hang Power Clean
3-3-3-3-3

Results: 65-75-85-90-95 (only 2 times, but that’s better than nothing!)

The last time I worked on hang power cleans was back in December.  That’s when I PR’d at 85#.  In fact, looking back through my journal, I couldn’t find any other time when I lifted 95# doing any kind of clean.

It feels pretty good reaching a PR.

I followed it up with a workout I’ve done twice before: in May and in March.  (You’ll recall I was so annoyed with how I did in March I vowed to keep testing myself.)  I didn’t do as well as in May, but Andy pointed out that I had just set a PR on hang power clean, so I was already pretty busted for the WOD.  Plus we ran/walked Sunday morning, so my legs were pretty fatigued.

AMRAP 12 min
3 HSPU (knees on deck)
6 Power cleans (75#)
9 box jumps (on deck — about 20″)

Results: 6 rounds

Luke’s birthday party is Sunday, and Andy baked Luke a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.  It looks and smells absolutely incredible.  I’m not supposed to go near sweets right now.  I’m not even supposed to eat fruit. I’m not sure what I’ll do, although the Whole 9 approach to cheats is appealing.
