Today’s Workout:

Buy In – Build up to a heavy (not 1RM) Clean and Jerk over 5-6 sets.  If unfamiliar with the clean and jerk, the coaches will lead you through some technique work.

WOD – “Grace”

Grace is another classic CrossFit “named” WOD.  Done fast and furious, it can be done in under 90sec (!) however most people will want to scale so that they complete the workout in 4-6 minutes.  Generally speaking, scaling to 50-70% of your max clean and jerk (up to 95/135) would be a good idea.

We last did this workout on October 9, 2009.  Check out the leaderboard on myfrantime.com!

Here’s a couple of videos to get your juices flowing:
