- 2-3 min jump rope
- Inchworm “out”
- Spiderman “back”
- PVC pass throughs
Then 2 rounds NFT:
- Row 250m
- 15 air squats
- 10 pushups
- 5 pullups
- 5-7 mins Clean and Jerk progressions to working load as required


Grace is a workout in which you do thirty clean and jerks for time. Men have to clean and jerk 135 lbs, while women have to clean and jerk 95 lbs. You may choose to do singles at a predetermined pace, string together sets, or plow straight through with 30. Do a realistic assessment of your capability, scale if appropriate, choose a strategy, and stick with it. A rep every 10 or 15 seconds is a good strategy if this is your first time. Use the clock. Chained reps are faster. This is a sprint WOD, so the bar dancing around on the ground can significantly increase your time. That being said, chained reps are more fatiguing. If you can do 10 straight, but that leaves you gassed, think about breaking earlier – maybe work in 3s and 5 with quick breaks. This workout is about mental toughness as much as physical ability. Don't choose to stop and rest because your lungs are burning, your heart racing, or your muscles are fatigued. I have rarely seen people get to the point that they have to stop, most of the time they choose to stop.
