LT keeps powering down!!
Nice work [B]Cliff.[/B] Congrats on L1 [B]Michelle. JC [/B] that tuck jump lunge WOD, :yikes:!
[B]John B[/B] trying to do Oly 2X a week, couple rest days maybe 2 WODS a week? The thing is, the WODS I like to do are the ones with lifting.
And I do the WODs the way I learned in Oly, diff than most people but what the hell do I really need to compare myself?

Comp. WOD 3 is right up my alley, don't know if I'll do it - depends what I do in strength/Oly. Weirdest standards ever, anything goes!! I guess you can reverse curl or rest your elbows on your thighs so its easy.... the part I don't get is the jerk miss - is a dip or moving your body considered an attempt - and then do you have to re-clean it?? or can adjust your rack and jerk from there??

Deb I'm no expert but the way I understand it is that if you get the squat clean done, then miss the jerk, you can rerack on your shoulders or start over from the ground with a power clean and then to the jerk. It's not a full rep until both parts are completed. I'm in trouble on this one. I'm really going to have to trust my jerk to get under that weight because I can't push press that much yet. It will be close or this will be the week I'm out.

Oh and if you guys get a chance to watch the "Update to the Games: Week 2" video. I have 5 seconds of fame there toward the end at somewhere around 20:30 of the video. The blonde with the funny accent. :D

What I've bolded above is not correct. It's a rep for each part completed, so when the squat clean is complete that's one rep, when the jerk is completed that's one rep.

OKAY!!!

Had my first official indoctrination to CrossFit yesterday! I'm almost ashamed to post any "feat" on here, but I feel so good about getting through learning the basic movements and then a 5 min MetCon at the end, that I think I have to boast just a little. So bare with me folks.

Learned basic, Deadlift, Clean, Sumo, and another that I can't remember at the moment.

Then MetCon: 25 each for time

Pull up (assisted)
Push up
Sit ups
Squats

My time: 3:37

You could stop chuckling now. I had a great time! And yes, remarkably, ans 4 ft. long PVC tube can amazingly feel like ton when one is not used to these movements. Anyway, I feel as if I'm part of the global team. Glad to be here.

Wilfredo - Awesome Job on that metcon! Doing 25 each of those movements are no small matter!! Great time!! Agreed that those PVC pipes get heavier than you can believe!

Cliff - There are days when the WODs are definitely killers! Then you get some really great ones!

[B]WU:
[/B]3X
10 Wall ball shots
5/5 kettle bell snatches
10 KB push ups (trying to lower yourself close to the floor as possible)

20 GHD sit ups

[B]WOD:
[/B]“Death By Pullups” AKA Pull Up Ladder
With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute… continuing as long as you are able.

9 rounds & 9 pull ups!

2-2-2-2 135# Front Squats!

[I]By round 8m this sucks bad!! Ha!:D Wanted to go into double digits, but there's a lot of me to get over the bar!! :rofl:[/I]
