    I’ll take a shot at the article. Disappointing. Frustrating. Expected.

    Between Dr. Oz and Taco Bell there is little hope for the uninformed. The worst part about the situation we currently have in the country as it relates to nutrient intake is that people are searching for answers and getting poor information. Acting on that poor information compounds the problem and produces little or no result. That leads to frustration and apathy for most of the well-meaning population.

    I firmly believe that a paleo/zone revolution (wrapped in another, fancy, ad specialty approved buzzword) will take place eventually. We’re quickly reaching or have reached critical mass with the health of our nation. Fad diets, pills, easy exercises machines, and the like have done nothing to stem the tide of obesity and obesity-related disease in the US.

    A change can take place. In the 20th century we smoked our way to a crisis. Now we’ve eaten our way into a crisis. With good science and relateable information people have largely kicked the smoking habit and in fact made it a societal taboo.

    As interconnected as the world has become now we have the ability to spread information easily, in a non-confrontational style (if we choose). We don’t need to wait on the Surgeon General, Dr. Oz, or a food chart to help us make the argument for change. Those of us who actively eat right are billboards for the proper diets. I choose to take that momentum shown by those who inquire about “how I stay so skinny” and transfer it into an appropriate answer.

    205-215-225(x)-225… and then 225 multiple times until I was too frustrated to continue.

    This was 10 pounds under PR. I felt weak in the catch and couldn’t get on the heel. I felt pretty irritated about this until I remembered I was up for an hour last night dehydrating myself from food poisioning.

    Don’t think I’ve done just a Power Clean WOD before, but, compared to my C&J PR, this is a new PR.

    First PC WOD and like the Snatch, this one is uber frustrating until it “clicks”. As soon as I would stop thinking about technique and timing and only focus on breathing and lifting, it would click.

    225, 235, 245, 255x, 255, 265x, 265PR

    the last 265 hit really good. Wanted to move on to 270/275 but attempts and class was over. Strangely (or not)…..I’ve discovered if I exaggerate the slow DL pull I generate much more power than a speedy DL pull at the bottom.

    Nice job on a bunch of PR’s today!

    I was struggling with form and over-analyzing, but with some help on my form and a little encouragement, I finally got the 105! Thanks Russell, Kerri, and Kevin!

    • Kerri says:

      Paralysis from Analysis will getcha every time!! Glad you finally got it the minute I turned my back and told you to be done with it!! =o)

  7. Slade White says:


    Form still needs work, but something must be getting better. Pr’d by thirty lbs today and was close to getting 205.

  8. Russ says:


    Too much time off. Weight has gone down a lot (155 was previous PR). Technique and form still need work. Need to focus more on powering the bar up using the hips after reaching my power position vs. rounding over my knees and pulling. Also, keeping my elbows Up and pushing from the heels not the toes.

  9. Katie says:

    Hotel (made up) workout…
    50 pushups
    30 thrusters w/ 2 15lb DB
    2 30-sec handstand holds
    100 mountain climbers
    50 situps
    ~10 minutes

    My feet for some reason want to go in crazy directions when the weight gets heavy but 235 felt great, just couldn’t transfer it over to 245.

  11. Robert S. says:


    frustrating day. The last one rep max clean WOD ( squat cleans) felt great. This one felt like crap.

  12. Barry S says:

    mental mental mental mental mental!
    (not to mention slow elbows 😉

    Did 8 or 10 reps at 155. Need lots of work on cleans. I’ve been doing them wrong for a while and need to get them fixed.
