Push Jerk 5-5-5-5-5 reps

Warm-up with two empty bar sets of 5 reps and one light set of 5 reps before starting your first work set of 5. These are progressive sets where the last set should be your heaviest.

Post weights used to comments/Logwod.

I call this picture "The Impossible Setup." It looks as though Jess J. is trying to set up for a dead-lift with shrunken weights. Impossible, right?

  2. 184. Pretty happy with that, since jerks are not my strong suit. Good working with you, John!

  4. 184 on last set. Feeling better today.....10 Days fighting a cold.....too long. A bit weary from the battle but good to be back.

    Any opinions on working out while sick...does it help or hurt?
  5. J Andresen Says:
  6. 186 last set, felt good, go more next time. There was a barbell that kept hitting people in the face at be careful :)
  7. Mark Says:
  8. 198# but the last rep or two I had to press out a bit so not a true jerk.

    I took a barbell to the chin this morning too so it must be going around. Noon and afternoon classes should beware!
  9. Paula Says:
  10. 97#- these felt good this morning... probably could have gone heavier.
    Way to push it this morning Sue, or should I say Jerk it!

    Mark, I also got hit in the chin and Sue got it in the head. I think we have a pozest bar at CFO.

    Great job 5am'ers! Celeste, it was good to do a "strength class" with you again....oh, memories! Good memories.

  12. I think you morning peeps are just haphazardly throwing bars around. I'm pretty sure no one at noon got hit by a bar. :)

    I finished with 77#. They weren't that heavy, but my shoulder just wasn't having it today. Thanks for making me feel better about my lift, Ron... Great job nooners!

  14. Brian,
    Working out while sick. The way I see it, it gets your mind off of the aches and pains of being sick. I've been fighting a nasty cold myself and coming in Saturday for the Games WOD I think helped move a bunch of the crap out of my chest. Same with doing Strength Class last night. Granted, my coughing got worse for a day or so, but the sore throat and grogginess is gone...

  20. Failed on 5th rep at 191 so my 5 rep max is 176. Wishing I would have gone 186 for my last set. O well, there is always next time...
  21. Brandon Says:
  22. I wish I had went heavier earlier in the sets of 5. The last 2 sets my wrists were extremely weak, which is why I missed rep 5 on set 5 at 242lbs... sucky!

    5RM Push Jerk = 218lbs (for now haha)

  23. B3nj4m1n Says:
  24. 191 for 5. Felt great. Also did the consecutive pullups before the 6:30 class with Kat. I only went through one time, failed on round 11. Then did the runs after 6:30 with Jess J., Kat, and G-Dawg. Ran a 3:04ish then a 3:08. Then I found out what the workout is for tomorrow, yikes!
  25. Kelli Says:
  26. 121#

    Awesome working with you Jess!!! :-)
  27. andresenfam Says:
  28. 68# Need to tape my wrists next time for more support. My last set of 5 was tough due to that weakness.
  29. Kat Says:
  30. 129# x 5rm.
