Today went amazingly well. I came into the gym a little stiff and unsure how the session was going to go, but I ended up hitting some solid numbers. I even power cleaned triple digits for the first time in almost a year. I’m not sure what it is about power cleaning 100kg, but it’s not something I do very often. If the next few weeks go this well, then my next meet is going to be a big one for me and I hopefully will break the 200kg mark in a competition.

Clean and Jerk from Blocks:
