3/1 WOD

9 Deadlifts (155#/100#)
12 Push Ups
15 Box Jumps (24″/20″)
(This was last year's Open WOD 11.2)

8 rounds plus 23 = 311. This is a HUGE improvement over last year, where I got 271; over one full round improvement! My stamina is greatly improved. I did all the deadlift and push up sets unbroken. (For the record, these are body weight deadlifts for me.) I also did box jumps to the new competition standard of opening hips while standing on the box instead of springing back and opening on the jump down. I found with this new standard that it is most efficient for me to jump up, stand up, and then step down with alternating legs instead of hopping back down.

Helen - Welcome!! Or is that, "G'day!"? Awesome job on 12.1! Yay! Burpees!! And that other WOD too!

Cliff - I'm impressed with that Back Squat!! Great job!!

Deb - You're one funny lady!! :D

JB - What A beast!! Yay! Burpees!!

Jack - Great work on that WOD!

Claw - Guess that CrossFit stuff is workin' fer ya!! KICK@$$!! [I](That Box Jump standard helps me too! If I jump down, then I usually find my self moving back up to get into jumping position, which takes more time.)
500m row
Stretching and Burgener warm up


Proceed through the sequence below completing as many reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
45 pound Snatch, 30 reps
75 pound Snatch, 30 reps
100 pound Snatch, 30 reps
120 pound Snatch, as many reps as possible

76 reps

[I]Thank God for the Masters' Division!! 1st set was easy, got it done under 2 min, then the next two sets got slower. The 77th lift was over time. Bummer!
One of the firebreathers did it after I did & the 2nd set (135#) was brutal!![/I]

I'm not loving 12.2. NO problem with the 30 75#'s but I am stymied by the 135. I'm gonna do my 30 then chill I guess :confused:

I missed something here, I guess the masters weight kicks in at 55....
You guys have great BS OHS and OHP #s. If you can pclean 135#, why wouldn't you think you could snatch it? Just full snatch it - its not try to pull the bar any higher, its jump lower quicker...I watched some of the video; lot of people missing only because, they won't get under it.
I bet I could snatch it (the catch & squat would be a prob though).
Theres a master on the leaderboard who got 63 with a video; watch it - nice work but he's doing it the hard way. Hips so high he has hardly leg help at all. DON'T do it like that. (He could pbly snatch the 100kg easy if he'd only use his legs to pull... no disrespect intended)
