After a longish holiday break, I was feeling a little sluggish and was anxious to get back to ‘hard’ training. The tempo on the front squat threw me off a bit and I had a bit of a struggle with the tempo. I wasn’t able to completely finish all 10 reps on the last few sets unfortunately.

However I made up for it by putting on a decent performance and getting a massive 77.5kg clean and jerk! I think I could have done 80kgs but I kind of tweaked my shoulder a bit, which I think is because I did not warm them up properly.

The workout was a good eye opener as I have never tried swinging 28kgs or snatched 20kgs on a WOD before. I’ll stick to the 24kgs on the swings for now and move up to the 28’s and hopefully the 32’s soon.
