Ooooo you fancy Mel! I love it- simple and Crossfit :). Keep it real!
Did the bear complex instead of deadlifts today- 5 sets of 3 reps (1 rep= power clean, front squat, push jerk, back squat, back push jerk, tap at the bottom… No resting!).
65 (warm up)-95-105-115-125-135
Thank you Matt for the extra encouragement so I would finish!
