Friday 130712

155 pound Squat Clean and Jerk, 30 reps

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.

Post time to comments.

Compare to 120404.

Got my Concept 2 rower delivered today. First time rowing and I love (hate!).

Rowed 2000m then
100 double unders then
today's WOD. 155 is my 1RM clean, so I scaled to 115 or 75%,
then 500 m cool row.

Do I stop and pause at the top of the front squat then jerk? Otherwise seems like thrusters

Comment #8 - Posted by: D at July 11, 2013 7:38 PM

Great snapshot of an important part of CrossFit's youthful and growing family. If anything, the OG story is too short.

Looking forward to the wod.

Comment #9 - Posted by: marty at July 11, 2013 8:07 PM

D - Thrusters involve a push press at the top, not a jerk. You can pause after the clean or not, but either way you will have to change direction to duck under the bar for the jerk.

Isn't this exercise just a squat clean thruster?

Comment #12 - Posted by: Yockey at July 11, 2013 10:17 PM

Shouldn't be a thruster. The description here is vague, but if I'm doing a C&J I'm catching the bar overhead with arms already locked.

#9, #12 - all clean and Thrusts (i.e. presses) are clean and jerks. Not all clean and jerks are necessarily clean and presses.

A true clean and press/thrust requires controlled form throughout the body (e.g. no leg splits, inertia, etc). A clean and jerk, while good form should be used, only requires that bar to get over your head.

I'm going to do clean and press for this workout with 135 instead of 155.

Comment #17 - Posted by: gb 45/m/71"/185# at July 12, 2013 3:01 AM

No guys this is very clear. We know a jerk to be a fast extension of the hips with a quick hip retreat landing us in a 75% squat stance with the bar finished over head at full extension. So coming from the squat after the clean there should be a quick drive after passing parallel to achieve the hip retreat again for the jerk, unless you are gonna split jerk it.

Thrusters do not require the bar to leave the shoulder area on the way down. Thrusters consists of the front rack bar position the entire squat portion of the movement, then you push press at the top of the movement.

Squat cleans require the bar to start back on the ground each rep. Unless you are doing hang cleans, but this WOD calls for squat cleans from the ground. So they are more like power cleans.

Curious to know why HQ would say bar dropping is acceptable. While it should be an option for safety, seems to me that if you don't control the weight back down to the ground that you miss much of the work, and its not really functional. I understand one can lift more if you can drop, but from a CF perspective, that seems to miss the point.

@#27 Nick K +1 . Indeed dude. But what you meant to say was "deadlift, shoulder-shrug, reverse-grip-curl, front squat, shoulder press". HA!

Not @ #27. If you CF and don't know what a C&J is, please watch the summer Olympics instead of Jersey Shore to educate yourself.

BTW, the words "squat clean" gives me douche-chills. "Clean" means receiving the load in a rock-bottom full-squat...otherwise it would be called "power-clean". I know, I said "load".

One more BTW, if you want more practice on your "squat cleans" (douche-chills again), go to http://www.liftupmoore.com and use your sweat to help the folks in OK. Peace.

Ran to gym, WOD scaled to 75# in 8:56, ran home from gym in wobbly way.

@Jim R., I read comments from the comparison date and someone said they dropped because of the added effort it took during the WOD to lower from overhead to the ground.

@9, 12 16, 30

Don't know why this seems difficult to understand. To break it down for those that don't seem to grasp the idea of a squat-clean and jerk, which is in reality, a clean and jerk. There is no difference. The main site states the description of the clean to help differentiate between the different variations of the clean (i.e. hang clean, power clean, etc..)
All this WOD means is to load 155 pounds on a barbell, and clean and jerk it 30 times. By the term squat clean, it simply means catch in in the full squat, just like an Olympic clean and jerk. You stand with the weight out of the squat position, pause, reset your grip, whatever, then you perform a jerk to get it overhead(catch the weight overhead with arms locked out and knees bent, then proceed to stand and lock out again with the weight centered over your hips). That's it. Rinse and repeat. It's not a safety issue if you drop weight, just don't drop it on your head, foot, or someone else. If you can't safely dump a barbell, then you probably shouldn't be doing technical lifts like clean and jerks anyway. It has nothing to do with functionality, just efficiency. Controlling weight on the way down is more difficult, and will leave you more gassed, but the idea behind this workout is a power endurance workout which means you exert a large amount of force for a short duration of time, much like the other sprint types of workouts, (Diane, Grace, Isabel, etc..) If you think controlling the weight down will make you better, safer, smarter, whatever then do it, your time will just be much slower then mine:)The clean and jerk isn't really a lift meant to be controlled on the downward motion anyway, look at O-lifters, do the set down their weight from overhead, hell no. It's more dangerous to catch weight when your muscles are ready to explode and your CNS is freaking out with a heart rate of about 180 bpms. If you are going to analyze what CF HQ is deeming acceptable, time to dig a little deeper into actually realizing what you are doing during your WODs. Just do it, have fun, and quit whining.

After the clean & jerks earlier in the week, I ended up with blisters and now just scabs the the base of each thumb, on the side closest to the index finger.

If I do these I'll rip them back open, so I want to cover them up. Band-aids never stay on. Does anyone have suggestions? I was thinking of some kind of tape, but don't know what to look or ask for, or where to go for it.

Jim- Thanks, from both of us.

On the issue of dropping, or not, I drop because it is a lot easier on my back with heavier weights. So, I do it as an injury prevention measure, even though it is slower that way.

We all have to do whatever works for us, I guess.

Jim R. comment # 30 Crossfit is about increasing your work capacity over broad time and modal domains. If you can more efficiently complete a given task by dropping the bar from the top than by lowering it that is always your best option. Do more work quicker always. Dropping the bar loses none of the functionality. Efficiency is key.

Comment #60 - Posted by: DT at July 12, 2013 11:50 AM

Kevin C, thanks and congrats on yet another PR today.
Carole, awesome work on that Filthy "55"!

Jim R, I see your point, and also Kevin's (for injury prevention). I don't drop the bumper plates ever, but I think it's more of a psychological thing; I worry that others at the gym (a non-CF gym) will think I have no respect for the gym's equipment. Even when I 'fail', I try to let the weight down in a controlled fashion.

Isn't dropping the bar slower than lowering it to the ground (think touch-and-go)? Wouldn't it be more efficient to complete more than one rep without resetting? Personally, I would rather rest a few extra seconds and get two or three consecutive reps than drop the bar after each single. However, the best thing about a mainsite WOD is that it's YOUR workout, and you can do it however YOU want!

Kevin, back, knees, shoulders...I'm also making compromises many days! At least my hips are fine...for now. It sorta amuses me (and supports CF's view) that I tolerate squats of all forms and weight far better than running.

#58/DT, I guess it depends on perspective. You do more work when lowering the bar than when dropping it, as you are now moving and controlling the weight over a greater distance.

#63/Joe--agree wholeheartedly...if I dropped the bar, given the amount of time it takes me to reset on heavy weights, I'd do less work (dropping) in more time (resetting). But just like scaling and subbing, each uses CF in the way that best suites them.

In 2nd mo of CrossFit and still learning. Need to focus on squat depth and form, need to put the wt down rather than drop it, and aware that this is a metcon WOD so scaled to 65 lb 30 reps. A couple of 10 sec breaks and one 20 sec break. At this weight no explosion needed to get the weight overhead as it's a pretty easy press, but still burned in my legs.

@ #79

As long as you are breaking parallel on your squat (hips are and lined up with knees or deeper), then you are doing awesome. No matter the amount of weight, 30 reps of squat cleans and jerk is going to break you apart. Don't expect to to do this unbroken. This movement is basically one of the most respected movements in Olympic lifting and CrossFit.

I have done Grace before but not with squat cleans. I am taking an extended break this weekend, but plan on trying this out when I am allowed to work out.

Pt/#86, I hear you. There actually was a CF gym inside the main gym where I workout. They've since moved to their own Box, but the main gym kept all the equipment because they'd purchased it. I'm sure they wouldn't kick me out for dropping bumper plates, so I should just get used to doing it, at least when I'm in the process of a failed attempt. Thanks for the comment!

130 pound Squat Clean and Jerk, 30 reps
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.

Complete 10 Rounds:
4 Power Cleans @ 135

I think many are missing the point of a "squat clean" (...shudder). The objective is NOT to squat below parallel to make a legit lift. The sole reason for the squat is to enable an athlete to exert the most amount of force during the 1st pull to "float" the bar... and then get "under the bar". Depth is not an indication of a good lift. Depth is essential to catch a big load. $.02

I was too lazy (again) to mobilize my shoulder so as to get my arm into a good position, so my elbow started hurting. I felt pretty lousy and depressed all day, so I just called it quits at that point.
