Sub for Clean and Jerk while at the beach
 
I'm going to be down at the beach with my wife and kids this weekend. On Friday I'll be doing the workout from 7/28. It's all Clean and Jerks. I'm worried that the "gym" at the resort will have just a few machines. Anyone know of a clean and jerk sub or different WOD that I could sub to get the same effect? Luckily the next day (sat) is a 10k. That'll be a nice early morning beach run ;)

Thanks!

Most hotel/resort gyms have dumbbells. Sub those in for the barbell.

Buy a top-loading army duffel bag, and some contractor trash bags. Fill those puppies up with 25 lbs or so with beach sand, and lift that bad boy from the ground to overhead anyhow.

We use a lot of sandbags at my gym (crossfit center city) www.crossfitcc.com (wfs) if you want to browse some videos of us using sandbags. In fact, I did JT (at least the first 21 and 4 of the second set) with the 50lb sandbag. Makes the 45lb barbell feel ridiculously light! You'll be shocked at the workout you can get with these bad boys. Good luck!
