In Crossfit, we occasionally get asked what our favorite Olympic lift is.  I waver between the Deadlift, Power Cleans, and the Push Jerk.  Today I made myself believe that the Push Jerk was my favorite.

In the 5 classes prior to when I worked out at 5:30pm, not one girl had Rx'ed the work - done it at the prescribed weight.  I honestly thought that was kind of bananas because I believed the prescribed weight should be heavier!!!

Focused with my eyes on the prize to finish this workout quickly and efficiently, I put my head down and did work.




  • 10 Push Jerks (135lb/75lb Rx)
  • 20 Knees to elbows

I finished in 8:54 - the QUICKEST TIME OF THE DAY, men or women!  Also one of two chicks to do it Rx'ed.  

My only regret?I should have gone heavier.


75lb Jerk x 50 reps
