John--if it's an consolation. I watched the demo of "Randy" and it was done at the end in sets of 5 or so. I was really impressed that the expert took so little rest between "sets".


Mobility WOD.

Put myself on an extended "Deload" phase to get thru the next holiday.

Wave 4 Bench: 5X 100, 5X125, 5X 150(25reps).

"Randy"

75 pound Power snatch, 75 reps for time. finished in 7:20. The first 25 went so smoothly----then came the rest!:eek:

310 is a PR! Felt strong this morning. [/QUOTE]
Nice job Claw..I saw Conn disliked it on FB...so is that a joke?
Anyway, great way to start the day

12-22-10
1RM Snatch 135lbs, first time actually getting full squat snatches with some decent weight.

1RM Clean and Jerk 205lbs - we did this competition style in small groups which made it fun, 3 failed attempts and your out. Just missed 225 lbs, was able to clean it, but not enough speed on the jerk.

Then
As many rounds as possible in 10 minutes of:
6 Squat Cleans 135 lbs
12 Pull-ups
24 Double Unders

Got 4 rounds even, tried DUs in weightlifting shoes which was a mistake

We bet who could do more by Christmas: Me deadlift or Nick clean and jerk? I think I've got this one, but the fact that Nick's C&J is in the ballpark of 300# is just stunning. Loser buys dinner. Poor guy is scared I'm going to bankrupt him!

Thats funny, I figured something was going on. Yeah, Nick is definitely a beast.
My co-partner Danny just did a 315lb C&J yesterday, and snatched 245 lbs. Fun to watch that much weight go up overhead.

Happy Holiday season everyone. I haven't posted in a long while. Did spend some time reviewing your posts above and marveling at your accomplishments. Since Thanksgiving, I have spent every day off (except today, need a recovery day) doing carpentry on the new box. I am recruiting some help tomorrow to speed up the work so we can open in January (fingers crossed).

[/B]6 RFT:

[I]Good WOD, the HSPUs were pretty easy. Did the DLs in 2 rep subsets. Was very happy about the single unders, did several sets of 22+ in a row & did one that was 39 in a row! (Good but frustrating!)

[/I]Got today's Burpees (Yay! Burpees!) 53 done!! [I]It's amazing how easy 5 & 10 in a row are becoming!!;)[/I]

William, I didn't attempt the PRs today, but am getting reps done just inside the PRs. Will likely go for the PRs next week.
