AM Workout:
In 8 minutes find 1RM shoulder press.
PM Workout:
100 KB Swings 26#
500m row
75 KB Swings 26#
500m row
50 KB Swings 26#
500m row
not a timed WOD 20 ish mins.

3x5 Snatch Balance
55-60-65-70(x 2 attempts failed at 2 reps)-55-55
First time attempting snatch balance so no complaints on the 65# PR.

Pull up clinic in an attempt to get linked Kips...came away with bad hands and still got bad kip. It's in my head and I need to learn to mindlessly do the kip.

Flow yoga, man this was just what I needed after 3 strength wod's last week.

2 15' rope ascents & 4 towel pull-ups to buy in to the following:
3 rounds for time: 14:46
10 RH KB Snatch 20#
10 LH KB Snatch 20#
10 Squat Snatch 35#

Funny thing, two weeks ago I managed my 1st rope climb, today it was much, much easier. Little did I realize just how much those climbs would torch my shoulders for the remainder of the WOD. I started with 45# on the barbell snatch and had to drop to the empty bar after the first 5 reps. :yikes: Humbling to say the least.

[B]Michelle[/B], snatching the bar from the floor isn't easy! You know, no plates to position the start....I find them a PITA!!
FWIW on stringing kipping pullups together, the key for me is pushing the bar AWAY at the top. Just push yourself straight back and let yourself go down from there, you'll be set up for the next kip. Hope that helps :) & strong work!!


Weightlifting FDU[/B]

Warmup: Squat, Shoulder, Sn Grip BS-Press-OHS 3x6xbar

[B]Press Sn. Grip Behind the Neck + OHS[/B]

[B]Power Clean[/B] worked on holding air and keeping chest up & out, just get under it for catch

[B]Back Squat (HB)[/B] Tight, explode out of the bottom

I showed my coach some CF pix of stuff we do (OHS, FS) and he said, "Throw these pictures out. Erase them from your mind. Both have flaws that you do not." (I always wonder, because I can't SEE what I'm doing, don't know if I look like the other weightlifters or not). I didn't ask any other Q's, I know he'd say, just lift.
He said I have more power than he thought. He thinks I could snatch 50kg, with good technique. I wonder if he can get my PC higher, I think thats already higher than I've done (w/good technique). I think today's OHS is more than I've done, (correctly) as well. I had one miss in there, got the bar too far forward on the way up.
I was tired because SB party last nite, ate like crap - but I still felt like I had more in me. Happy with this!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
2/8 WOD

Press 3-3-3-3
95-105-115f(2 only)-110
A little off my best, which is 3 x 115#. Taped my wrists because of the presses plus cleans later in the WOD, which is a good idea.

Followed by: 3 Rounds for Time
12 Power Cleans (135#/95#)
50 Double Unders
400 M Run
60 Seconds Rest

17:36 @ 125#. I normally scale 135# to 115# for clean WODs, but tried 125# today. Not able to do all 12 straight at any point. My form was pretty sloppy. The added weight made the WOD challenging. As usual, double unders were the bottleneck. Not to make excuses, but I think a good jump rope would help a lot. It will be nice when the sizing ropes come in so I can try a good one and get it sized right.

We started the WOD with some shoulder/lat mobility work, which was nice. Hard to say if it helped my performance, however.
