Last Friday Charis was in and after he did his squat PR he took off his shoes and was more than happy to just sit and relax for the rest of the session. When it was my turn to clean I asked him if he would join me so maybe he could see something and maybe I could learn something.

Warm ups were fine, 70kg x a few, 80 x a few, 90, 100 all fine!

Load 110 kg on the bar and you see me do a pull and I can't turn my elbows.

This ended with us going back down to 90 kg and me attempting to do a power clean PROPERLY and they turned out as pulls. I CAN'T USE MY LEGS ON THESE and no idea why!!!!

Then, like magic, I did one!!!! I hadn't planned to do anything more than bring it to my hip and it flew to my shoulders so fast that I didn't even think to turn my elbows over to catch it...

Hoping I can do it again!
