(125 kilo clean, new PR)
This past weekend Hyde Park Gym had a clean contest and tire flipping contest. It was an absolute blast testing myself against other crossfiters and people that do nothing but Olympic strength training. I set a PR for cleans at 125 kilos (275.5lbs) and flipped the 630lbs tractor tire 3 times. First time to flip a tire, so I wasn't too disappointed. I will say this, Olympic weightlifting has got to be my favorite type of lifting to do and has got to be one of my favorite things to coach. I just wish I would have found it when I was twenty years old.
Many of you may or may not know I am doing three on one Olympic weightlifting and strength specific training once a week for eight week sessions. The next session will begin in four weeks.
