Today's workout

The workout at the gym today was called "The Bear". You had to do the following:

- Power Clean
- Front Squat
- Push Press
- Back Squat
- Push Press

7 times to count as one round, without putting the bar down. Then you could rest as much as you wanted before starting the next round. And you had to do a total of 5 rounds. And it was hard. I started with a 40lb bar and then added 10lbs for subsequent rounds, and it was still hard. I don't even want to say how long it took me to get through it (hint: more than 45 minutes). Part of the challenge is I'm still working on my form, but most of it is that I have a lot of work to do yet to get strong. It was a great workout even so.
