Clean & Jerk My Body Weight!

I was in Phoenix over the weekend, and my diet wasn't quite Zone-like, so I ended up losing four pounds during the trip (I'm a hardgainer), taking me down to 214lbs... I came back to the gym on Thursday and was able to Clean and Jerk 215lbs... And then I almost got 225!

That felt really, really, really cool... 250 is in my future.

Pat on my own back.

Re: Clean & Jerk My Body Weight!

Nice work, this is a goal of mine too. I'm only about 5kg off, but I'm nowhere near 215lbs!!

Again, great work, keep those numbers climbing

Re: Clean & Jerk My Body Weight!

Good stuff man! It's a good feeling getting that weight up. I recently jerked 215... but my clean PR is 225... 250 is a great goal, but I'm not going to rest until I reach 300!

Re: Clean & Jerk My Body Weight!

Great work man! I feel your excitement! Last CJ day I set my own PR at 225. I didn't think I was going to be able to clean it, so once I had, I thought (damn, now I have to put it over my head).

250 is a great goal, I think I will steal it as a goal as well. I'll check back in a few months!
