This week started off with some heavy work right out of the gate! After working up to a new 1 rep max squat clean, we threw in some heavy squat cleans into the workout, too. Well played, Orion. Well played.

Today, every single person PR’d in their squat clean except for one. And by at least 10 pounds, too! The one person who didn’t PR, tied their PR. That was CC. He pulled 275 off of the ground. TWO HUNDRED and seventy-five pounds. Yeah. he’s strong.

The workout consisted of 135lb squat cleans, which is heavier than most people in class tonight have ever done a workout with 55 reps. It was intense, but a lot of athletes did their first Rx with that weight! GREAT JOB, everyone!
