Working one minute and then resting one minute, for 20 minutes, how many reps of 95 pound Clean and Jerk can you total?
Post reps to comments.
A Jiu-Jitsu master, two Olympic skiers, an extreme climber, and, just in case, one trauma doc.

Can we do hang clean and jerk?
I hate being first to post!
95 repititions. Completed full clean and jerk each time rather than hangs.
It was my forearms and shoulders that were failing. Legs felt strong. Sets were
Pissed I missed 100, no doubt there will be a few awesome scores here from Kelly, Rutman and Mark G!
Full clean and Jerk with all the weight I have 25 kilos. Not too demanding because light weight, so I worked on form. But tomorrows will definatly be challanging.
Sir Mr. Stud Fish ,sir that's an incredible post... it took all and I mean all of my 148lbs to dothe following with 95lbs touch & go from the flo'...........
8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,10 = 82
Wow..this was incredible whole-body test.
Coach, I love your program.
Sorry that I didn't find Crossfit earlier. Can't say that I wasted 5-years doing bodybuilding type workouts, after all, any exercise is better than none.
After a dozen WODs I feel stronger, have greater endurance, and have a renewed sense of enthusiasm toward getting more fit day after day.
Generally, when they post clean and jerks, they mean from the floor (touch and go in this case). Either way, if you record which version you do, you can compare it to the next time this WOD rolls around.
Haha, fish, you crack me up. I'm guessing you meant Matt G. instead of me. That, or you're mocking me. But I'm going to bask in the moment anyway. I'll never again be mentioned in the same company as Kelly and Rutman.
Anyways, I lack reading skills and did Tuesday's WOD instead, which is actually good because my legs are still sore from Friday.
I am much better with C+J for weight than for reps.
Another bone for the big guys. Used power cleans from the floor w/push jerks/presses. Nice workout. I have loads of blisters and shin scrapes to remember it by. Total of 163 (24,20,16,15,16,16,14,15,12,15).
Waiting for Rutman to crush me on this.
121 reps. I am dead. I only used 25lbs cause my hip/back are hurting and I didn't want to miss another WOD (I missed Fridays). Hands are shaking - that's all I can type!
50 Reps with 70lbs(all the weight I have on a barbell)
DAMN RYAN! That's awesome. It's easy to stay humble comparing myself to the athletes on this site. This workout had me ready to quit; my grip is totally shot. I managed 92 with the prescribed weight.
Time to couch potato and watch some football!
Holy Cow Ryan,
You are a machine. I did Tuesday's WOD along with my fellow illiterate compatriots.
I'll try this tommorrow
only 32!with a 50 kilos,about 100pounds,sandbag.I am a little disapointed with myself.
107. Did a Highland Games yesterday, and I'm still a bit pooped. Set a PR in the 28, which made me happy, and had my best caber toss ever.
I don't have bumper plates, so I had to use the little 25's. I did take every lift to the ground though.
Ryan- You are the man.
I could only mustard up 153 total reps. I knew your score was too much for this old guy. 20,18,17,15,12,15,15,13,14,14=153
I'm taking Tequila off my Saturday night routine.
Clean & Jerk with two 24kg kettlebells
9,7,8,8,9,7,6,6,6,7 = 73 total
Finished up with 3 minutes of jump rope.
120 full C&Js with 95 lbs:
Legs were still sore from the last WOD.
So I'm thinking: My 70 might be a decent number considering the goal was 50 going in. Then I get to the site and look at the posts. Sheesh! Ryan is beyond stud consideration and is approaching legend status. Then Rutman, closer to my age, pulls off twice my number and thensome. You guys are inspiration personified! I have miles to go before I'm satisfied (to paraphrase Frost)!
All C&J's as prescribed, touch and go!
Opened up at 0515 this morning with a Run(5K)-Swim(3K)-Run(5K). Good way to get things rolling. I did this workout as prescribed with the exception of cutting the "rest" interval down to 45 seconds. I tried at 30, but that was too short.
52 squat C&J with 80 pounds (did the first few with 85 and realized it wasn't happening)
I did Clean and Press as 95 is a bit too light to jerk 100 times. Enjoyed the workout, looked like Mr. Murray (Submaster Open Novice Natural Lifetime) walking into the house. Need to oil up after this workout and work on my posing routine...
95# clean and jerk
Way to go Ryan and Rutman !
101, all 10s except the 2nd set was 11.
Oh and I was timing myself to a 1:05 song on repeat, so I got an extra 5 seconds for each minute.
Thanks for all the kind words. I'll have to enjoy them now because I'll probably have my abs handed to me on a platter for tomorrow's WOD.
Warmup: 5 negative reps on the Pullup (still working up to doing those unassisted).
7 9 8 6 4 5 5 4 4 3
Total 55 @95lbs
Took it easy on this one, 110 total reps (12,12,12,12,12,10,10,10,10,10).
I'll do this WOD tomorrow...just got home from many hours of trail riding and my back and hip flexors are in agony.
75. grip strength killed me. i would crank out 5 or 6 in 30 seconds on the last 5 sets, and then had to rest grip for 20 seconds and crank out 2-3 more reps for the set. i took friday as a rest day and did the clean/lunge/press workout yesterday, which hurt me a little bit. sweating like a pig doens't help grip either, i should use chalk or gloves i guess. you guys with 100+ are awesome...
100 reps w/ 95. Made my lungs burn. All reps were touch and go clean and presses. Seemed silly to jerk such a light weight. I saw the Crossfit DVD and what they refered to as a C&J was nothing more than a power clean and push press. Nothing wrong with that but helped to explain a lot from my end.
7/8/8/7/6/6/6/6/6/6=66 reps total
You guys are awesome. Took Zyrtec this AM and was just starting to wake up at workout time. Welcome to Central Texas in the Fall!
don't why my numbers were so low...
finished up with sumo deadlifts and calf raises....xfit seems to have given me chicken legs...
111 as Rx'd
My limit was these two gaseous sacs in my chest. My forearms were fatigued, but neither they nor any other muscular strength or endurance issue limited me. My lungs simply couldn't keep up with the oxygen demands of the body.
Nicole and I worked out at Gold's. She had full size BFS 10lb rubber plates and I had standard metal 25's. Many rounds we kept the same pace. Apparently, it was quite the spectacle. The gym wasn't that crowded, but it seemed like half the people there stopped to watch. Nicole's getting pretty ripped and several guys told us they assumed she was tossing around 135, which was especially impressive next to my 95 (she's BW 115 and I'm 190).
I don't have the breakdown by set in front of me, but it was mostly 10s, with a couple 9s, couple 11s, and a 7 right at the end.
After a summer of battling nagging injuries (knee,shoulder,back,hamstring) with no crossfit and packing on 10 lbs. of pure beer, I decided to start again and 'work through the injuries'. First workout today and I'm finally able to type after about 2 hours. Power clean from the floor (still nursing the knee) with a mixture of presses, push presses, and whatevers near the end.
104 as prescribed with 65#.
I look forward to the day when i really am tossing around 135 on my Clean and Jerk :-)
Well, this is weird - posted results last night, don't see 'em this morning.
bwt 110; 85# power clean/push jerk for
Sun afternoon practiced kb tossing/flipping with the 1 pood, and clubbell iron crosses and drumming.
10-9-8-9-9-8-8-7-7-8 = 83 reps
Power cleans and push presses (which turned to push jerk late). Afterwards worked on my handstand walk (6' and counting...).
You actually got me to pull out the DVD and check.
What is shown on the DVD is a powerclean and clearly a "push-jerk". (If the hip yields while the arms are pressing, it's a jerk.)
The push-jerk allows for a much quicker cycle time than the split jerk and consequently allows much greater power output than clean and split-jerking. (Only snatching can exceed the clean and push jerk for sustained power output - from our measures)
If you push-pressed, next time push-jerk and you'll end up closer to 150 reps! (Even if the hip only drops four inches).
10 sets with 1 minute rest:
3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,4,5 = 41 reps
I'm actually very pleased with this. Didn't think I'd get that many.
Interesting to note was that I had tremendous trap soreness this morning and it's nearly gone after this workout. Very neat.
Coach may have tossed a 95# bone to the big dogs, but the little terrier in me decided to see how much of that bone I could sink my little fangs into. 42 sweaty humbling reps - a couple one minute rounds of 5, the remainder with 4. Full squat cleans (I did pull out the mirror to check my depth) and push press with 95#. While my chin avoiding taking punishment this morning (now that's amazing), my right wrist had to wrapped after the second round due to pain during the press.
touch and go @ 95 lb.
Limiting factor was grip strength. Afterwards, I couldn't take my shoes off (double knots are heck!).
ryan and all you plus 100 guys/girls, way to go!
I worked on form and my shins are banged.
7, 6, 7, 7, 7,6,7,6,6,6= 65
100 next time.
AJQ your a stud.
71 Reps. Tried sets of 8, but some sets of 5 creeped in.
10,10,10,8,8,9,9,9,9,9=91 reps of C&J @ 40 kg
75lbs(that's all I have)
10 sets x's 8 rep's
Forearms were burned up.
I think I did them wrong, though. On each rep, I was returning the weight all the way to the floor in a full squat...
71 reps (11,9,8,7,7,5,6,6,6,6)
Wondered how close I could get to 18 reps for the first minute. Went to a rep every 10 seconds for the last 4 rounds. Like Paul I had sore body parts that are no longer sore now I've done this, well we'll see tomorrow...
Just managed 61. Can't pretend to competence with O-lifts or bar. Amazed at Ryan and Rutman, two absolute star performances.
85 reps @ 95#.
I've been lifting weights (bodybuilding style) for years and a friend of mine recently turned me on to crossfit - this was only my second crossfit workout. I did Friday's workout (on Friday) and could barely walk on Saturday (sore legs mostly), but I enjoyed every minute of it! I already can see the value, efficiency, and effectiveness that this workout program offers. I thought I was in relatively good shape until I came across crossfit and it's obvious I had no idea what good conditioning meant! Thanks for a great site!
122 reps as written. 15,12,11,13,12,12,12,12,12,11
looking for 150 when I started, gassed at the first set. and had to back down.
95# Clean and Push-Jerk
1min of work, 1min of rest for 20min
Total reps = 88 x 95#. *Whoosh*
Done on Monday. Got lots of looks - I'm the only guy in the gym ever doing oly lifts.
Sunday: 100 back squats x 175# in 28 min, all reps below parallel, most rock-bottom. Iced the cake with 10 1/2 squats x 455#. *Whoosh* Crossfit seems to be improving my recovery between workouts, esp. CNS recovery. Often sore, never crippled.
103 total reps with 95# in 20 minutes.
Terri's first time with power cleans. She used the 45# bar on this one with the goal of getting at least 5 reps every round. She got 6 on most and ended with a total of 62.
Julia used a 5# training bar, pacing herself at 10/round. Although she had good form, she lost interest after round 4 and rode her bike around for the rest of 20 minutes.
ouch. my grip is shot!
95# clean & push jerk
total = 108
added good mornings and pistols afterward.
Did a day late trying to catch up.
60 reps with 95lbs. grip strength was the issue
felt really strong but my wrists started to get tired.
Awesome program!! First day was a good one....I puked. 15-12-12-12-11-8-7-10-10-10=107 23yrs old 5'9" 155lbs Air Force guy.
92 reps. Still need to work on getting under the bar more, but I'm getting there. I need a coach. Great workout.
76 reps with 95# full squat
My first workout with the C&J, and I just got over a cold, so I thought I'd try for good form and not worry so much about the poundage. Warmed up with 20 reps or so with just the bar, started first three rounds with 75lbs (no bumper plates, just little ones), managed 10 reps per round, form was ok. Set a goal for 8 reps per round for the next three with 85 lbs, and actually managed 9 reps for two of the rounds, but form was really suffering. I finally loaded on the 95 lbs and started the next three rounds. After hitting my chin twice and dropping the bar completely, I figured I'd adjust the rest intervals and rest two minutes between rounds. Managed 6-6-5 for those three, but form was crap. Did the last round with just the bar again, trying to fix my form, so didn't count reps for that round. Total=72 reps. My collar bone is nice and tender. Should do much better on the L-sits.
Did full squat cleans with a push jerk.
50 reps total.
Modifications: 95.5# instead of 95# C&J's.
Total of 95lb Clean & Jerk in 20 minutes....
Did 10 reps for the first four sets, had to break it down to anywhere from 5-8reps for the rest.
As prescribed, touch'n'go C&J in (8, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6).
I seemed to find a bit of a rhythm @ 6 per min, so I tried to stick with it till the last set. I was definitely hurting in the last couple of sets though.
119 reps touch 'n' go
I killed myself on the first set and it is a lot harder than cleaning with full sized 45 lb. plates because you have to squat down so low with 25's.
Did the Clean and Jerk 20 minute workout yesterday,WOW KILLER
Posting this way late.
Total reps= 72.
