The second inaugural DCCF WOD is in the books.
Hang squat clean 3-3-3-3-3-3-3 reps
The hang squat clean is a good opportunity to practice full hip and leg extension, and speed under the bar. Ideally, each set will be as heavy as possible for 3 reps, but newer athletes should start light and slowly add weight as they are comfortable.
Completed: @ 35#, 35#, 35#, 45#, 45#, 45#, 55#
Holy that felt good. So light, but so good. It’s amazing what the body remembers and the mind forgets. As I was sinking into the squat under the bar I was thinking, I’m doing it. I’m doing it! In total disbelief. But the body, the body knew exactly what to do. The body said, leave it to me. Somehow these familiar movements bring you back to some place you once knew but long forget and miss nonetheless. It’s like going home. The familiarity found in rediscovering a movement it took years to learn and then left behind. There’s comfort in the body remembering what to do.
According to the notebook, I PRd my Squat Clean at 100lbs. on 7/28/2015.
Tonight’s an early night. Coffee machine is cued up. Dog walked. Check. Check. Check.
