CrossFit Weightlifting Certification

Today was day two for this class. We started with a timed "junkyard dog" warm-up. My new best bud, Andy, and I did this together and finished in the middle of the pack.

The rest of the day was:

  • Get heavy with snatches - I hit 135# and missed 155# a few times - this was the most I had snatched since surgery in July.
  • Work on Cleans
  • Work on Jerks
  • Get heavy with Clean & Jerk - I hit 185# and did not try to go heavier. I could tell my shoulder would not tolerate more weight overhead.

By the end of the second day my whole body had little aches and pains. I bought an instant ice pack and taped it to my knee for the 3.5 hour drive back to Boston. Overall, I was very happy with this weekend class; I learned a few things about my lifts, and lots about how to coach the moves.
