    very, very nice convulsing power clean (?) For those that need a definition for convulsing: to suffer violent involuntary contraction of the muscles, producing contortion of the body or limbs.

    Loving the skills week. Nice idea. Also, a day late, but heck of a job by Matt H. yesterday. He killed that workout.

    not to sound like a BAMF, 60% seems low for power cleans.
  4. Dave Reply
    Ant, maybe a little low....but 45 total reps over 15 minutes. The goal of this WOD is not to lay you out on the floor, but to have to work hard to keep good technique throughout the 15 minutes. You could scale them up to full cleans at that load :)

    I want to give props to Paul Potorti for nailing a muscle-up on his first attempt. What a badass!
  6. Mats Reply
    Big ups to Rich for coaching me through my first muscle up (4 actually).
