Where do you hope to make up time?

Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

My transition was slow. I was doing it against another comparable guy at our box and his transitions were much faster. But
I broke to singles sooner and that helped me pass him in reps.

I didn't use clips either and once I started dropping singles I had to slide the weights back on the bar a few times so I will probably use those.

Guess that every workout works on people different. I was in serious pain for first two which was a surprise.. this one was easy on me. I am going to gain some weight over the weekend and do it again on Monday. Off to the buffet

If you got through 275, the 15 box jumps after , and had time for 4 reps at 315 - I am 100% positive that you can pull more than 405 off the floor.

I have a hard time with the 1RM deadlift. I dont know if it's a mental thing or what. That 405 is from 6 months ago, I've actually tried it a couple of times since then and can't get it to budge.

Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

I would add about changing the weights prior to the box jumps, i feel like this is the best approach for EVERY round including your last round. I understand that it will affect your tie breaker but if you think this will allow you to get one more rep, then the tie breaker argument is pointless. In the snatch burped workout last year the tie breaker was more important because if you knew that you could not get one snatch at the next weight then the tie breaker meant a lot. But on a workout like this, the one extra rep you might gain by changing the weights first is obviously way more important than a tie breaker at one less rep.

Khalipa with one rep at 365. Was expecting more. Steve Platek with 4 reps at 365.

I agree. You should re do your max haha!. Went tonight and got 135....My form was degrading after a few reps at 315 so the timer went off at a good time for me!! I feel good enough for a redo but I think Ill save my back and let it rest up for 14.4. Did half step and half jump on the box.

Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

I got a score of 106...

Here are my recommendations:
1. Start stepping up once the DL's start to get heavy for you (Eg you start breaking them up). Step up on the corner of the box so you can rep quickly.
2. Pull on and off the bumpers/weights
3. Use iron for the 25lb plates so you can get them on and off easier. Ladies, use Iron for the 10lb plates.
4. Start breaking up the DL's once they become slightly heavy. Once the weight gets really heavy, do singles. (I started to break them up at 225, and did singles for the 275 reps)
5. Prechalk your bar and your hands big time, and have chalk available in your station. Use it when you start singles.
6. Use easy on clamps for the later rounds; but dont bother with them until you are doing singles.
7. Have your weights pre set up near your bar so you don't have to run to get them.
