[QUOTE=Nik Nichols;414766]CFWUx3 with 25 lbs

With a continuously running clock do one 135 pound Clean and Jerk the first minute, two 135 pound Clean and Jerks the second minute, three 135 pound Clean and Jerks the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.

total 6 sets, with 6reps out of the 7th round


Also did 20 ghds and 3sets of 15 dead hang pullups out side of the warm up.[/QUOTE]

This one sounds tough...was it a killer?

It was tough wile I was doing it, I'm feeling it now some. It was a push, when I wanted to stop, I had to go for 1 more because I knew if I didn't get all my reps I was done. So I kept going as much as I could.

Nik, go to the main page, and on the right is the "archives" section. Just click September 2008 from the dropdown menu and The Chief is in there.

PS - kettlebell swings after deadlifts, I hope your lower back is ready for this!

Right on, I didn't take a rest day, and it was a skill move doing the snach. I'm in no way making excuses, This is jus a starting point.

I think there is a point at which your skill level actually hits a certain spot where working on snatches is a pleasant and productive feeling workout, I have no idea if that point exists for me!
