What’s worse than 30 Hang Power Cleans at 95lbs

……60 hang power cleans at 95lbs.

Day 355

Yup, it was 90 degrees today, and I had to complete 60 hang power cleans at 95lbs – broken into 30 with a push jerk and 30 with a push press.

It was the first day I really pushed my knee under a decent load and over all it held up pretty well.  I could tell by the end of the hang power clean push jerks I was favoring my right knee.  Honestly- less because it hurt, and more because it was just tired.  I haven’t really used in 8 months and if fatigued.

Needless to say by the end of the first 30 the LAST thing I wanted to do was another 30.  It was so damn hot I was dripping in sweat and it felt like no matter how much chalk I used I couldn’t keep a hold of the bar.

5 hours later I’m not in pain, but I can tell I used my knee today.  I have a feeling I’ll back it down a few days and let the knee rest after a hard days work.
