A couple of PB's at opposite ends of the spectrum

Grace (power-clean and push-press) in 3:02

100kg power-clean during last ME Front Squat WOD

bw 95kg (209lb)

Happy with these, and other than simply doing regular CF WOD's the thing that has brought me these two results is the lack of a squat rack.

By necessity I must be the squat rack and this has undoubtedly provided the recent increases in strength.

Cheers, kempie

Nice work Chris!

Obviously been doing some work on the power cleans since you were doing them in my garage last year!

Yeah mate, was just going through my training log and saw that a 60kg power clean was a struggle then, and even with a push-press i couldn't get that overhead. Feels awesome to be able to throw that round pretty comfortably now.

Cheers, kempie
