Circus Dumbbell Clean and Press

45 x FAIL

notes: I wanted to grab the giant dumbbell and practice a 2 handed clean, with the different hand placement on the press. The frame by itself is just 45 pounds, so it was a good place to start practicing the form. Unfortunately, cleaning and pressing even 45 lbs was something my mending hand did NOT like. It throbbed for 10 min, and then itched like HELL, it was an odd feeling. So I called it there, and went home.
