4 November 2015 – Grace(y) x 4


10 Side Kicks
10 Arm Side to Side
10 Passovers
10 Lung Twists


2 Minutes Work || 30 sec rest
A Choice:

30 x 4 Clean & Jerk (50kg/30kg)


30 x 4 Thrusters (40kg/20kg)

My choice:

Clean & Jerk (Rx)

The most clean and jerks I have ever done in a row. Holy crap. I think the pic below says it all. I eventually settled on a rhythm of 3-2 per minute (3 on the minute and 2 on the 30 second mark). That gave me a total of 10 per two minutes. The first round  was 15 per minute. Pacing was key with this WOD as it was basically a scaled Grace times FOUR. Felt good once I got into the rhythm, but it got really hard on the last couple rounds. Traps and side obliques are feeling it today. #TRexArms

Score: 10 rounds (F10)(Rx)






11 August 2015 – The Perfect Storm


Attempted the second qualifier this morning for the Last Man Standing Comp. Got to the 4th round of box jumps before time ran out. Also had quite a few no reps which didn’t help 😐 Physically not so tough but my  cardio let me down – would’ve been faster if that was up to scratch.

WOD 2 “The Perfect Storm”
9 min AMRAP
6 Clean & Jerk (40kg)
8 Knees Above Hips
10 Wall Balls (7.5kg)
12 Box Jumps (20″)

Score: 138 (Split time 2:01)


WOD Scoring:
 The score will be the Total Reps completed within the 9min CAP.
 The Split time taken after Round 1 will serve as a Tie Break score.

3 June 2015 – Clean Slate

75% x 5 (60kg)
85% x 3 (80kg)
95% x 1 (100kg)
Do single first- Then- AMRAP to near failure

I made sure to keep my shoulder blades in and control the movement on the up and down. I also alternated grips between lifts. The double overhand hits the core nicely!

1 Power Cleans
1 Hang power clean
1 High hang power clean

Did these with the bar at first, eventually loading up to 50kg (Bar, 30kg, 40kg, 50kg)

15 Squat Clean and Jerks (60,40)
100 Double Unders
10 Squat Clean and Jerks
100 Double Unders
15 Squat Clean and Jerks
Level 2 (50,30), 50 Double Unders
Level 1 (40,20), 100 singles

This injury might have been the best thing that ever happened to me. My form on double unders has improved immensely. I managed to hit 30 on a row tonight! It also makes you more mindful of your body and its limitations so you are always conscious of what one can and cannot do (but not in a limiting way). These weeks of rehab also has me doing everything strict – I think I’m gonna keep doing just that 😉 #Strength

Time: 15:27 (40kg Squat Clean/DUs Rx)

I can clean again! Wooooo! Granted it was at 40kg but its a start, hence the title ‘Clean Slate’. I also did lots of the stretches that the biokineticist recommended and those are helping loads. The squat cleans also worked the core a bit, somthing that’s been neglected since the injury  #GettingThere
