Grace Workout

The Grace Workout consists of 30 clean and jerks for time, with men lifting 135 lbs and women lifting 95 lbs. A time limit of 15 minutes will be in place for all competitors.

A clean and jerk is comprised of two weightlifting moves performed with a barbell.

  • For the clean movement, the lifter raises the barbell from the floor into a racked position across the shoulders.
  • For the jerk movement, in a smooth motion, the lifter moves the barbell from the front rack to a stationary position overhead.
  • The lifter should finish with straight arms and legs and the feet in the same plane as the torso and barbell.
