    This was miserable. PSU were terrible. At least my shoulder doesn’t hurt. I’m coming back…slowly, very slowly.

    Really tough wod. Had to re-grip after almost every clean which slowed things down considerably. Need a longer pinkie finger so it can stay on the bar the whole time.

  • naveen

    five rounds: 60# hsc, 30 pushups
    14:33; probably could have used a little more weight

  • Jeffrey B.

    Lost my grip a lot. As a result I added a DL many reps. Horrible in a fantastic way.

  • Matt K

    Used 115# on Hang Squat Cleans
