Had a really good time in the gym today doing some full clean + jerks. I have literally never done a full clean before in my life before today. I have done powercleans a couple of times before, but that’s about it. I have been sick, and therefore had to take a break from my normal training regimen, so today just for fun I decided to play around with cleaning and try and work up heavy. I ended up hitting 235 for a single
I know it’s not perfect, but it’s way better than I thought I would do, and I had a great time. I think I’m going to try and start working the olympic lifts in more regularly, I really loved cleaning today, and I think I could add them in one day a week. As long as I’m patient with PR’s and spend a lot of time working at lighter weights to try and tweak my form, I think I could make a lot of progress and have a lot of fun.
Anyways, I’m not too worried about critiques because I know it’s not amazing haha, I’m mostly just posting this cause I’m excited and had a lot of fun. But if anyone has any helpful advice, tips or tricks, let me know. Thanks
