Happy 34th B-day Tooty!

She even made herself a cake. That was nice. We love you 2T. You are the best wife and mother our family could ask for. Thank you for all you do.

By the way everyone, wish me luck because I am going to be totally busted for this post.

Check out this [wmv] [mov] of Miranda, Tommy and Ben doing today’s WOD. Great efforts from some extremely strong athletes. Now, lets play armchair quarterback in the comments section. Post some positives and negatives you see in the technique displayed in the cleans in this video. Hint: think footwork, elbows, arm pull, rack position and all the other stuff we talk about when doing the o-lifts.

All Classes

Clean one rep every minute on the minute for 15 minutes.

Post the highest and lowest loads to comments.

    I’d hate to be in that room when the knee caps go flying… Seriously though, you can see that they have pretty decent technique at lower weights and are pushing the limits for fun. Day-to-day, I never like to see a clean caught with the shoulders drooping like that or just about any of the stances used at the higher loads. Missing a clean isn’t a bad thing if you can’t pull it enough or drop fast enough to get under it. Proper technique isn’t just about making lifts it’s about safety too. At my advanced age this is becoming all too clear to me. Goofing around is fun but it only takes one bad lift to put you out of action for a while.

  4. Happy Birthday Charity!! Great people born on this day apparently! haha =D

    -Jeff and Mikki-

  7. I should have said. . . HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL. . .you young thing! I just turned 40 in April 😦

  8. Happy Birthday, CV! Thanks for being an inspiration (I saw you butterflying at 34 weeks preggy). Your girls are a delight to be around because they have such an awesome mom!

    Mad props to that strong Miranda! It was interesting to watch this video after doing the workout, lots of stuff that came in 12:30 came up in the video too including getting under the bar and failing vs. getting the bar up and just not getting under it and failing.

  9. Happy Birthday Charity! Hope you are enjoying a fantastic celebration today!!

  10. Happy belated birthday. If you can’t have a slice of cake on your birthday what is the point of having a birthday at all?
