    • Weekend Oly: New Total at 138.75kg/305#!
      Snatch: 61.5kg/135#
      C&J: 77.25kg/170#

      And a 200# Front Squat (finally)… 205# was just a hair shy of parallel so didn’t count.

      Then I spent my Saturday judging the 2012 Life as Rx’d Winter Crossfit Open (check SICFit for some highlights) at Captain Crossfit in Prescott, AZ (self-claimed “Largest CF box”… place is HUGE). Made me miss all the Mid-Atlantic competitions. Also, Paul Smith (former fullback for the Broncos) is a MF’ing beast. Note to self: do NOT run into him alone in a dark alley.

  1. Snatched up to 70 kg x 1, 63 kg x 2 yesterday

    Traveling to Atlanta this weekend to teach drums, plus I get to teach 100 high-school and college-aged kids how to squat, push-up, run, and plank. Should be fun!

  2. Snatch: Have difficulty controlling the weight in the deep squat position. Spent most of the time working on OHS.
    WOD: 4 rds + Box Jumps (24″ box, 60# thrusters)

  3. Snatch- one set at 89, the rest at 79 (squat was NFROM today, lower back soreness from yesterday)

    WOD: 5 rnds + box jumps (18″, 67#)

  4. Snatch – worked on form from the hang position up to 45#
    WOD: 5 rnds + box step-ups + 4 thrusters (20″ box step-ups, 37#, modified burpees to air squats and knee pu’s)

  5. Snatch: 95, 115, 125, 135, 145 – full squat up to 135, then brain wouldn’t let me get under it at 145, so power snatch to OHS.

    WOD: 8 rounds – did the last 6 burpees in the last 15 seconds and blew myself up!

  6. Snatch: 67, 89, 89
    Power Snatch: 111, 133 (PR)

    WOD: 5rds + 4 box jumps Rx

    been a while since doing thrusters, should have warmed up more. thruster form got better/faster after the first 2-3 rds.

  7. Snatch: 35, 45, 57, 62 x 2 (Had to do power snatch into overhead squat for 62#. Couldn’t stay locked out at the bottom.)
    WOD: 6 rds + 12 BJs (62#)

  8. Snatch: worked up to 89# double (Felt good, getting better at dropping under weight and not just power snatching and riding it down)

    WOD: 7 rds + 6 thrusters (scaled to 6 18″ box-jumps per round, 67#)

    First time box-jump post injury. Went slow and tried to land gently on those and burpees.

  9. Snatch: 40, 45×4
    WOD: 5 rounds plus 1 step-up (24″ step-ups, 45#, slow, non-belly smashing burpees)

  10. Snatch: still messy at 65#, switched to 55# (back sore)
    WOD: 6 rounds @ 55# , 18″ box
    I would’ve done one box jump but Logan was standing on mine announcing time!

  11. Saturday Oly Class

    Snatch Pull: 3×3 at 67#
    Snatch Balance: 3×2 at 47# b/c my shoulders are a little beat up
    Front Squat: 3×3 at 101#

  12. Saturday: OHS work again.. 5 reps at 55#, 75#, 85#, and 3 reps x 3 at 95#
    Muscle up work- got three more yay!!!

  13. Saturday Oly;

    Power Clean: worked up to 207lbs (PR), multiple fails at 229lbs…pretty heavy stuff.
    Split Jerk: worked up to 185lbs x 5 (with some fails mixed in)
