Two lifts that were oh-so-close to American Records this weekend…

The first is 14 year-old Juliette Chang-Fane’s new PR Clean & Jerk of 73kg/161#, which is 5kg from the 14-15yo record. Not bad for her first meet, and she’s got 18 months left to break it.

The second, THEE Jared Fleming, with an easy meet PR Snatch of 165kg/363#. Just 3kg from Norik Vardanian’s two-month-old record of 168kg.

WOD 140929:


5X2 Pause Snatches (3 count pause at the knee) – heavy but NO MISSES and absolute strict pause at the knee, rest as needed

BB Cycling/Midline

1a) 4+1X3 Touch & Go Snatches (full) – three sets to work to a 3rm (see note for explanation of +1), rest 90 sec.

Note: The +1 set is an additional ME UB set @ 75% of the 3rm established in the first four sets. The goal is as many T&G reps as possible – with perfect technique – before dropping the bar.

1b) 4X60 second ME Strict TTB – rest 90 sec.

    DND — Had nothing today. This definitely wasn’t happening.

  11. 28/170#/5’9″/M/CenEast

    PaSn: 135/145/155/165/175# – no fails, felt solid

    TnG Sn: 140/160/175#
    ME: 9 @ 130#
    ST2B: 14/14/14 – felt much better than the last time we did these

    Conditioning: 93 reps; +9 reps from 2012 Open

    Notes: Paced first 5 mins at 12/round. Finished each round in 0:40, so was able to keep a 2:1 work:rest ratio. Never felt fatigued or tired. Last 2 minutes, I pushed it all out, getting 33 in the final 2 minutes. I think I can easily get over 100 by doing 13/rd as well as starting slightly sooner on the ME, as I still had some gas in the tank. Couple this with the fact that we are still 5 months out from the Open, and I am pretty satisfied as I accomplished what I set out to do prior to the WoD.

    And to echo Shawn from above, I went all out in 2012 and only got 84 then. Today, I never redlined, and I felt in control the whole way through.
