Coach Alex’s Notes:
Make sure you scale this workout to ensure you are performing the reps properly, especially if you are new to CrossFit. Ideally you would learn, then practice, the clean and jerk at low reps and only use the movement for conditioning style workouts after you have a solid technique base. The muscle memory created by fatigued repetitions with shitty technique is hard to undo so take the time needed to make the reps perfect. There is nothing inherently problematic with the high rep Olympic lifting used in CrossFit. Injury potential arises from shitty technique and attempting lifts beyond your capabilities. Doing those things can cause injury at any rep range.
