Haven’t done this one since back at the LP gym. There the 32 kg barbell was the second heaviest pre-loaded bar. Here it’s just the bar and the wee plates. My box is a lot higher than the LP gym benches, so no weight on the step-ups, which are usually done with the bar on the shoulders and, occasionally, with dumbbells in hand.
Swings @ 24kg KB
Power clean and jerk (alternating push, split left, split right)
Claire came out side to “play gym” with me. While I was on the bar and bell, she used the box to reach and swing from the rings. Or jumped on the tramp. Or did presses with the 1kg pink dumbell. Or played with the tennis rackets. Or rode the walkbike. Or renamed me Jimmy, and herself Alice. Or reimagined the shed as our new house in the country. Or cast us as best-friend-cousins who are camping in the back yard. And so on.
Also, new dancin’ shoes:

1,000m row, under 20 spm, no foot straps, not timed.
The weight on the bench was heavier than prescribed, starting with 40 instead of finishing with it. 5 at 50kg was about as challenging as I’d like it to be without a spotter.
The C&J weight was scaled down from the main site prescription, but in the work gym, I was more than happy to have 60kg overhead with some confidence. Ball slams were a sub for rope climbs.
The week day fasting is no problem so long as I keep it paleo. The addition of sugar and/or free time on the weekends is a killer.
7×1 Clean & Jerk
Lots with 35kg
2 @ 40kg
2 @ 50kg

Focus on recalling technique.
Jerk is the limiter.
I’m sure I thought it was weak at the time, but 70 sounds impressive to me now!
Quite tired from the riding yesterday. A massage this week would go down a treat.

5:00 KB long cycle C&J @28kg, alt. hands every 3 reps
Heavy deadlifts felt A-OK. Decided to do some oly work as a sub for the usual jumping, squatting and stepping and realised how deficient I’ve become through lack of practice / inclusion. It’s hard to believe that I was comfortable enough to snatch 50 kg in Pete’s apartment lounge two and a half years ago, but it was fun to return to technique work.
KB stuff at the end just for a little extra conditioning. Hard, but the limiting factor was slippery hands on the KB.
