5/3 WOD

8 Rounds for Time:
5 Push Jerks (135#/95#)
10 Heavy Kettlebell Swings
15 Double Unders

22:13 modified to 125# push presses and 2 pood kettlebell.

I cleaned the bar from the floor; a few rounds were 5 straight, but mostly 3 and 2. I'm not sure why I didn't understand push jerks, I just assumed push presses. I selected 125# instead of 135# because I could press 125# up when form deteriorated, but not necessarily 135#. Was apprehensive about getting the 2 pood kettlebell over my head, but then thought "I choose the wrench" ([url]http://www.daiglebreathesfire.com/2010/12/choose-wrench.html[/url]) (not totally WFS; some vulgar language) and went for it. Very glad I did.

Wow, 8 rounds was hard! Everybody rocked it this morning going hard and heavy. Congrats to newly certified KJ for swinging 1.5 pood (T$ better start showing up at 6 am or he will be left in the dust!) Randimal and Danette made huge progress on their double-unders.

Wilfredo - The 400m/50 squat WOD is brutal!! Cliff is SO right!! Most 50+ year olds wouldn't have been able to do that at all!! Wait till it come up again!

[I]Clipped 2:16 off my time last 30 Dec!! :pepper: Tried to do it in subsets of 5 rather than 2, the last set was in subsets of 3!! (Would've done the last set faster, but one of the Base Gym Staff came in & gave us the "Evil Eye" so we wouldn't drop weights. We had one guy kicked out last week for "Dropping a weight" 2 INCHES! So, I was careful - & slower!)

[/I][quote=Bill Houghton;932585]... I am pretty excited about being able to snatch in this workout (my first real snatches). In 08 I couldn't air squat or put my left arm overhead, so this is a PR and the beginning of a new phase in my training. Thanks CF. This old guy is being rehabilitated and I love it. Fountain of Youth for me. :pepper:

Cool down: My wife and actually danced for about 3 songs with another couple after this workout. :yikes:[/quote]

[I]Unbelievable! One of the gals in the class & I started dancing after writing our times on the whiteboard while the rest of the class finished!! Cool! ;)[/I]

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;932238][B]Michelle!![/B] sorry about your troubles, hope you are doing ok, and that things get back to normal quickly.... (duh, I'm so self absorbed on here, I just wasn't thinking! sorry about that:o)[/QUOTE]

Wooohooo!! Oh sorry for such enthusiasm but I am so grateful to be back in the groove.

My son has just infinished his freshman year at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. I am grateful beyond belief that he was in his dorm on campus when the tornado went through. Everything just outside of campus has literally been leveled. He's home and safe and that's all that matters. We were without power for 6 days, imagine in this day and age. We are grateful no matter what. Neighbors and coworkers have lost everything.

Got to make up 11.6, so I made it through all 6 rounds. Results have been submitted to HQ and I'm sure I'll be at the bottom of the list but I DID IT!! No complaints here.

This morning was 5x5 front squats: 85-95-100-105-110(2)

Jim C.,

A big key to OHS is realizing it is primarily about core strength and hip flexibility. A really good, 360 degree hip stretch beforehand and then really keeping a rock steady core (good lumbar curve) during the lift make a huge difference for me.
