Lifting heavy things
Friday, January 29, 2010
As part of a fun item on my Paleo team I'm posting a picture of me lifting something heavy. I was in hopes of finding some concrete junks to drag around for this photo, but that didn't work out. So I headed to the gym and found something to try. Good thing I think, as I look at these photos, I am concerned about my form! Not surprising. I'm not even sure what this move is called, a jerk, a clean, a power clean, and clean and jerk. Je n'ai sais pas.
Anyway, here I am trying to lift 65 lbs with my relatively weak upper body. One of the reasons I haven't been to crossfit in so long is right here: because I can't find a trainer (YET) who makes sure I've gotten aces form. Turns out my hubby did this type of lifting in high school on the football team. Maybe he can guide me straight.
Sorry spark made these pictures so small
