Daffy has been attending Intro to Oly pretty consistently for the last few months. Here, he PRs his clean and jerk by something ridiculous like 40lbs. at 190lbs. (the plates on the bar are kilos).

SELF-MYOFASCIAL RELEASE: Lax Ball Shoulders, 5 minutes.
MOBILITY: Band Pec Stretch, 1 minute each side. Band Overhead Stretch, 1 minute each side.
DYNAMIC WARM-UP: Set up a single ring for yourself and perform, Tabata Single Arm Rows, 8 rounds of 20 seconds of work, and 10 seconds of rest. Don’t do this for max reps but instead to wake up a good position for the shoulder: shoulder blades back and down. Begin with your weak arm in the first round, switch to your strong arm in the second, etc.
METABOLIC CONDITIONING: “Standing Lynne” 5 Rounds for Max Reps (Rest as needed between rounds): Max Reps Strict Press at 75% of bodyweight (or, 50% of max press – whichever is heavier), Pull-ups (Kipping or Strict Pull-ups are allowed, for those with testy shoulders, NOT KIPPING during this workout is STRONGLY recommended.)
