155 pound Squat Clean and Jerk, 30 reps (105#)
The barbell goes from ground to overhead, passing through a front squat in which the crease of the hip passes below the height of the kneecap. The finish position is with the arms, hips and knees fully extended, arms overhead, with at least a portion of the ear visible in front of the arm. Dropping the barbell is acceptable.
Clare and Faith looking good upside down!! Speaking of which….¬†When’s the last time you did a handstand? If you can’t remember the last time, let’s change that!
Being comfortable while inverted really has a handful of great benefits!! It’s a great way to build strength, gain body awareness, find balance, improve shoulder mobility, encourages a tight/steady midline, and Yogi’s swear by restorative organ properties due to reversing the effects of gravity and allowing for better blood flow.
