135-155-175-185-205(2) with all squat cleans. Missed 205 forward/toes. Back to work!

Appears I never did this one before... weird. First dedicated clean and jerks besides an odd 30 C&J at 135 (Grace) since 2018.

C&J @ 55. 55. 55. 60. 60. 1RM is 75. Anymore today would have cost form.

295 x 2... most certainly have 295 for a triple in the bank. Just been on a low carb diet and I’m definitely getting fitter but my body is still adapting and I felt super weak but strong at the same time 🤔

Commented on: Health Implications of High Dietary Omega-6 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids

Thanks for sharing this paper with us. It's an interesting one, as is your analysis of it. Your note at the end, about reducing intake of n6 is very straightforward and helpful.

My main education on this topic was the series of Zone books. Nice to see eicosanoids are still an area of active research. This article goes into further detail on what they are and how they function. The n3 derived resolvins and protectins, are relatively new to me. Dr. Sear’s has a new book out covering this topic called the Resolution Zone. I guess next will be the Protectin Zone?

One thing I learned from Sears is that you don’t want to go overboard with omega-3s. If you have too high a ratio, you get too much inflammation. If the ratio is too low, you don't have enough inflammation to mount an immune response. He points out the Greenland Eskimos, who had super low levels of inflammation and did not die of of heart disease, MS, T2D, but they would more readily die of infectious diseases. (Anti-Inflammation Zone p 39)

Just a random sidenote, but figure 2 in the paper seems off. The scale diagram seems to be showing a higher n-3 level (the scale is tipped that way), but the subsequent arrows and text indicate increased inflammation/disease prevalence. Probably just an accident.

Not feeling a lot of strength today. (No I am not sick, just a bit flat.) After SLIPS, subbed this:

AMRAP, 12 minutes

12 deadlifts

9 hang squat cleans

6 push jerks

75lbs barbell

Completed 5 rounds + 12 DL + 1 HSC (148 total reps)

not very good - but SLIPS actually were quite good today compared to last time

Scaled to

SLPS--forgot the inversion.

pwr clns/split jerks

reps as rx

130/140/150/150/150--all drops from the top, then a quick reset. Not good at cycling the bar.

having left hip flexor/low back pain when squatting--not sure what's going on.


compare to was

squat cleans up to 140, so not really a good comparison

In gymnastics, there is a value in putting different skills and shapes together. There is a valuable stimulus in those transfers. Today let's practice. Create a little flow between all the components of SLIPS, and finish with a mini-routine. It does not have to be complicated. It just has to challenge your movement and control a little. Check our options below.


Heavy day! Oly day! Today let's have some fun. Go as heavy as you can while mechanics allow you. Triples on Olympic lifts are different than in power lifts. They are more taxing and will not allow you to grind them as a deadlift would. That means if you are using percentages to build, you should not aim for the low nineties, but the upper eighties. Take one rep at a time. No need to cycle this. Focus on your set up position, brace good and lift.

Now, the Clean and Jerk is a very technical lift, however, it is also very forgiving with sloppy technique. That means it is going to be on you to keep your standards high! Remind yourself, the better your technique is today, the more you will be able to lift tomorrow. And in Olympic Weightlifting, longevity is one precious reward. For athletes who struggle with technique in either the clean or the jerk, consider working on the lifts separately starting with the trickier of the two. Athletes new to the clean and jerk should work on progressions to learn them. Experienced athletes can use progressions as sets to develop technique.

▶ Progressions for Clean

5 sets

5 Cleans in Full Extension

4 Sets

2 High Hang Cleans(Dip Clean) + 1 Hang Clean from midthigh + 1 hang clean from knee

3 Sets

2 Slow clean + 1 Clean 

All cleans are squat

▶ Progressions for Split Jerk

5 sets

Press Behind the Neck in Split Position

4 Sets

2 Jerk Drives + 2 Tall Jerks

3 Sets

2 Split Jerks Behind the Neck + 1 Split Jerk 


Our full flow is:

▶ 5-second front scale

▶ Transition from front scale to back scale

▶ 5-second back scale

▶ Back scale to handstand

▶ Slow descent

▶ 10-second gymnastics plank hold

Start by working on each part

2 sets 

10/10 Front Scale Lifts

2 sets 

10/10 Back Scale Lifts

2 sets 

5/5 Back Scale to Handstand

2 sets (OPTIONAL)

3/3 Back Scale to Handstand slow descent 

3 sets per side

Full Flow

Champions Club Scaling Notes


Nothing off the top of my head to rant about.


Add in a little fatigue - both with SLIPS and number of reps - to a heavy day.


Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes of:

10 hang cleans

20 lunges

:30 handstand


As is


More reps at each set, and disregard the number of sets. Also make sure you feel the bar release from your hands on both the clean and the split jerk.


Pick 2 SLIPS and go at them for 20 minutes each.


Box jump


Hollow hold


Jump rope

Jumping lunge

2 rounds for 30-seconds of:

Spiderman lunges

Push-up to downward dog

Wall-ball shots (with a light medicine ball)


Clean and jerk

Perform 5 reps of each step of the progression with an empty barbell:

Hang clean deadlift + shrug

Hang muscle cleans

Hang power clean + front squat

Deadlift shrug + clean

Push press

Push jerk

Clean + split jerk


Build up to starting working weight by performing 4 sets:

Sets 1 & 2: 5 clean and jerks at approx. 50% and 60%

Sets 3 & 4: 3 clean and jerks at approx. 70% and 75%

> All sets should be approx. over 80% of 1RM clean and jerk



EMOM 10 minutes

10-20 seconds L-sit hold on rings


EMOM 9 minutes

1. L side plank for 40-seconds

2. R side plank for 40-seconds

3. Rest

Globo/home Scale: If you have elements to do this, than go at it. If you max your available equipment, do AMRAP sets. Now, if you can't load much weight or only have bodyweight available then you are still in luck. Spend 10-15 minutes working clean and jerk technique with a PVC pipe or broomstick, breaking down the elements then putting it all together with perfection. You can build then with your available weights/implements if you have them. Then, for strength, do some "Knee Jumps" ( wfs), explosive jump squats, and kipping Handstand Pushups (or progressions) (probably 3-5 sets of 3 reps each, superset). SLIPS as Rxed.
