18 Toes-to-bar...

If you complete the round of 18, go on to 21. If you complete 21, go on to 24, etc. Loads are (135 men / 95 women).  This workout begins from the standing position with the barbell on the floor and the Athlete standing tall. 

Every rep counts in this workout. You will enter your score as the total number of reps.

Movement Standards:
  • Clean & Jerk.  The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing.  The barbell must make contact with the shoulders, such that the lift is in two distinct phases, the clean, and then the jerk. Snatching is not permitted.  A shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used, as long as the elbow, shoulder, hips and knees are fully extended, and the bar finishes directly over the body with the feet in line. If the jerk is missed but brought back to the front rack, the Athlete may re-attempt the jerk from there without taking the barbell back to the floor.
  • Toes to Bar.  In the toes-to-bar, the Athlete must go from a full hang to having the toes touch the pull-up bar. Both feet must be in contact with the bar at the same time, inside the hands. The arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom and the feet must be brought back behind the bar and behind the body.

13.4, 69 reps. Think I have more in me, wanted to get into that next round of TTB. Good showing this AM. I am on you like a spider monkey Harvey, don't let off the gas!

Scott - can you send me an email to Question for you.

Pretty surprised with results of 13.4 today. My Grace time is 8:55 and 1RM C&J is 155#, so I was shooting to get through the 9's and into the 12's. Final score of 63, with 3 reps into the 15's. Being able to string together TTB was key, and Again Faster's tips were key to being able to do that. I think holding onto the bar for 3x C&J at a time was good in the beginning; by the end they were singles, dropped from the top, using the time to reset on the bar as "break time." Pretty stoked. Guess the new Grace time is at least 7:00!
Pretty awesome to watch Jacob H go next. What a beast!

Clean and Jerks are always slow for me. The weight tends to not be the issue as much as the flexibility and hand placement. I can't catch the bar to jerk it in a full grip. I'm always two or three fingers on the bar, adjust jerk, then drop because I can't lower it fast and keep solid enough hand position to keep going. This week has displayed this weakness very well - thanks!
