Darren went heaviest with 132#/60kg, Alex and I used 110#/50kg, Taz 103.4#/47kg and Donna 44#/20kg. Deadlift and Hang Power Cleans Hang Power Cleans and Front Squats Donna: 14:17 Matt: 17:02
Great workout, thanks to Alex for hosting us and having some good angry music to workout to.
After recovering as best we could we headed out to lunch at a cafe on the waterfront. Nice to be by the ocean again. Tomorrow we have the run clinic, so we are praying this good weather continues.
