Re: Starting Team CrossFit Olympic Lifting Team

your snatch should be around 75-85% of your CJ. So with a 40k snatch you should be able to CJ +/- 50K.

If I were to pick a number...if you can snatch half your bodyweight and CJ a proportionate amount with good form - there's no reason you shouldn't/couldn't compete - at least experience it.

Re: Starting Team CrossFit Olympic Lifting Team

Seconding the recommendation of just get in the meet. I know it feels awkward the first time if you're unsure of yourself, but everyone there will just be really happy to have more people involved, and you'll have a blast.

I think if you really want a number to go by, then the recommendation for 50% bodyweight is a good one. The last meet I was at allowed a separate lifting category for novices (unofficial designation), and looking at the numbers, a lot of them were snatching about 50%-60%. There was even one person who snatched at 37% though... it really doesn't matter. Just get out there and do it!

Re: Starting Team CrossFit Olympic Lifting Team

So first off Coach, We are in with both feet!

Secondly, Kelly and I just competed in our first meet at MBS CrossFit in Broomfield Colorado. Patrick Burke did an amazing job of setting this up and running the event, so he is a great place to look for help. I also know that Eddie and Lisa Lugo have held events at CF San Diego, so they are a good resource too.

I spoke with Pat (Burke) and brought up the idea of doing several competitions around the state (of Colorado) throughout the year, culminating in a "Colorado CrossFit Olympic Lifting Championship." I know that the point is to eventually compete at (as Coach B said) local, State and National levels. This meet was a great learning meet, a chance to see what you could expect and learn how to plan strategy for prep and performance. I was fortunate enough to speak with Coach before hand and I doubt I would have done as well with out it. I think that this is great.

Coach, please let me know what if anything I can do to help.

Re: Starting Team CrossFit Olympic Lifting Team

the idea of doing several competitions around the state (of Colorado) throughout the year, culminating in a "Colorado CrossFit Olympic Lifting Championship as john brown suggest is outstanding for all crossfit affiliates who are interested in competitions with the oly lifts. learning the aspects of how a meet is run from the warm ups, to counting attempts of your athletes ensuring they are properly warmed up on time along with the strategy that one uses to get the best performance is a must. this is fun and just has to be experienced to understand in's and out's of competition. our lwc has a big meet next week at newport harbor high school in newport harbor, ca. if any affiliates are interested in watching how a meet is run i would suggest you attend. contact me if you need info. re the meet.

more to come. mikeburgener@mac.com

Coach Burgener -

Count me in. Tell Sage I even bought a singlet - it's a Sydney Games-style, sufficient to scare children. Someone just point me to the comps.
