Grace (135/95) 30 Clean and Jerks, for time.

Here’s a little bit more about “Grace”.

A video I made a LONG time ago (2008) of Single Arm Grace – 30 Clean and Jerks for time of 135lbs. with ONE ARM (15 on the left, and then 15 on the right).

The winner of the CrossFit Games (2012 and 2011) does “Grace” with 225lbs. in less than 5 minutes.

2 Ladies from CrossFit Boston perform “Man Grace” – 30 Clean and Jerks for time at the men’s weight of 135lbs.

Rob Orlando would probably clean and jerk a lot more if his form was better :)  but this is an impressive, if not sulky, effort all the same.
