7x3 Snatch off the blocks, above the knee.


My shoulders tired quickly. After failing at 45#s, I did some practice heaving snatch balance and my shoulders were dead, I couldn't stick the receiving position.

7min AMRAP

20 Jumping Lunges
15 Kayaks 18kg
10 Hand release push ups

4 rounds and 9 Kayaks

About 3 days ago I did C&J 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1.

At 80# I ceased the Jerk as my wrists were just not having it. I did clean 85#s, which I was surprised. 90#s just psyched me out and I failed twice.

This ain't my way...

But I can't help and GUSH about how much I am so glad that I purchased the Nutribullet . I fuckin' love it. A little background, is that I've been wanting a blender specifically for making whole juice concoctions. My mom tried the Ninja and it cut her good. She returned it. Then she got the Blendtec and swears by it. Of course with my experience in pro kitchens, I'm comfortable with the Vita-mix brand. Both Vita mix and Blendtec are $400 and $350, respectively. I just couldn't pull the trigger on that kind of money.

So in the meantime, I've been going to G's Juice in downtown PDR for my green machine with beets... but they remove the fiber, it's suce the veggie liquid. And it was $4.00 a 16oz.

I came home one day and saw the Nutribullet infomercial. I am usually reluctant to believe anything sold on an informercial, but I wanted to give it a try. I could always return it to Target right? MSRP was  $99, $20 less than what they were selling on the TV.
I came home and immediately made a spinach, parsley, cucumber, apple juice. I was hooked.
I've been consistent everyday, drinking either a green juice or a sweet, milk based protein smoothie (no greens).

Go git yourself a Nutributllet.

Back squats @ 70#s

Then I worked on my handstand for 30 mins, trying to come away from the wall. I spent some time also on head stand, raising my leg in the pike and straddle positions.
