Warm-up: 3 rounds of
10 power cleans (pretty insignificant weight, I’m too embarrassed to note it)
10 pull-ups (jumping pull-ups for me)
WOD: 5-5-5-5-5 Log Cleans
I was trying to guess what log cleans meant before coming to the class. Pretty sure I had never heard it before despite having been through the CrossFit Foundation/Essentials class recently, so the knowledge should still be fresh in my mind. Logarithmic cleans? WHAT! Stat and CrossFit?! I am in LOVE, sign me up… but of course it’s not.
Apparently it’s cleans with an actual log (enclosing a very low-resolution pic found on Google). There are only two logs: 75# is Rx for the ladies and 90# for the men. The logs at my box look more rugged than the one pictured here. It looks like Anthony, the box owner, just chopped off some tree in his backyard and drilled holes for the handles. Who makes these things anyway? I can’t imagine much demand for them (which leads me to believe that maybe they really are homemade). I tried 5x each round (for gawd-knows-how-many-rounds), and couldn’t clean the damn thing. Supposedly I came really close to it though (according to people who were being nice around me) :) Definitely next time, Log, next time.
