Clean and Jerk
Warm up (sample warm up progression below, notice the sets at lower weights) and test your 1RM. If you’re feeling good, then try to set a new personal best. If not then warm up and try to make a few singles at or above 85% of your previous 1RM. If you’re newer to the lift, or just want to break it down a bit, perform the complex of: Clean Deadlift + Hang Power Clean + Jerk (or Push Press).
Sample Warm Ups (previous 1RM 133): 53 x 3 x 2, 73 x 2 x 2, 93 x 1 x 2, 103 x 1, 113×1 (85%). If you’re feeling good then… 123, 130, 135, more?
Press outs are missed lifts, as is any part of the body other then the feet touching the floor.

Next Sunday: The Subway Series Stops at CrossFit Queens
Another year has gone by, and it’s time once again for an NYC affiliate throw down: the 8th annual NYC Subway Series! All NYC affiliates are invited to participate—the affiliate with the best overall score at the end of four events wins the Subway Series Trophy and bragging rights for a whole year.
This year the 3rd event takes place at CrossFit Queens on October 7th. The Subway Series uses a team format (M/M and F/F), and there are both Scaled and Rx’d divisions, so we hope as many CFSBKers as possible will sign up.
