“People are not lazy. They simply have goals that do not inspire them.” – Tony Robbins

Something we can all agree on – anything in life worth achieving, is going to be very, very hard. There’s no two ways about it. Greatness does not happen by accident.

Goals sometimes default to the “whats” in life. A “what” can be a certain amount of pounds on the barbell, or a specific amount of pull-ups. It’s a goal, but, is it a reason?

A reason is what gets us up our of bed in the morning. What we think about in the shower. What we see in the mirror when we look into it. Goals don’t move us towards greatness – reasons do. Goals can be the waypoints or checkpoints along the way, but our reasons are the true North Star.

It’s what makes us feel alive.
It’s a driver that gives, not takes.
And when the journey gets to challenging that it strikes us down to our knees, this battlecry is what brings us back to our feet. It’s a battle cry for who you are as a human being.

What is it? Let’s not be ambiguous.
Define it. Write it down. stare at it. Refine it.
And come back to it, every, single, day.

Clean & Jerk Complex

2 Hang Power Cleans + 1 Push Press
2 Hang Power Cleans + 1 Push Jerk
2 Hang Power Cleans + 1 Split Jerk

In today’s complex, there is a total of 9 repetitions per set. We are looking to hold onto the bar for all repetitions, but if bringing the bar down from overhead is a safety issue, drop from the top and immediately deadlift the bar back to the hang position.

Set #1 – 65% of 1RM Clean and Jerk
Set #2 – 70% of 1RM Clean and Jerk
Sets #3-4-5 – 70-80% of 1RM Clean and Jerk *Record heaviest set in WODIFY*
