I got sick of having to search through my workout log to find my old PRs, so I decided to put them all in one place.

Monday 3/16/09: CrossFit Total at CF Works.

BW ~177# / 80.5kg

All of the below are PRs at this BW, because I can't seem to figure out what my old 1RMs were, other than my old CFTs (which were really pathetic, IMO, they still are not up to par)

Press: 155# / 70.5kg PR

Back squat (low bar, landing stance, all the way down): 295# / 134kg PR

Deadlift: 325# / 147.5kg PR (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5UKxdIy2Zw)

Total: 775# PR, an improvement of 105# from the last time I did a CFT, ~18 months ago!

Old CF Total attempts posted at my old CF workout log:

Congrats on your PRs, they have me totally confused about myself.

George,
Thanks, and what are you confused about? :confused:

Not much, just I have a huge variance between my deadlift and squat...my deadlift has progressed a lot father than my squat. I feel the prescription is pretty apparent...more squats!

Well, different segment lengths can easily account for the squat and DL variation between folks...I have a super-long torso, relatively short arms and legs.

I could also spend some more time deadlifting and squatting, that's for sure. I'm going to be squatting as part of my OL program, maybe doing one DL set a week of either normal/halting/rack pulls, and definitely starting to press more either through HSPU work or standing presses.

I'll be going through my CA workout log, the PR/Milestone thread, and my old CF log to find any other PRs to add to this thread.

From Thursday 3/12/09: Snatch workout at CF Southwest.

Snatch: 85kg PR

This was after an 80kg PR 1.5 weeks prior (after a 5-week OL hiatus). Best snatch prior to the 80 was 77kg in my first OL comp.

Clean & Jerk: 105kg PR.

First set at the PMenu OL seminar in Portland July(?) 2008, then repeated at my first OL meet in Phoenix in December2008.

My jerk is definitely the limiting factor. Work on my overhead pressing strength will be forthcoming.

Damn, Garrett is so badass, he has his own PR thread and posts to it regularly...

Arien, just trying to keep all my PRs in one place for easy reference. Sheesh. Maybe it is time for me to just put it all on my own blog.

If I found the search engine on this forum easier to use, I wouldn't have started this thread.

Oops, I wasn't mocking you at all, but I can see how it sounds that way. I'm quite impressed -- if I had a PR thread of my own, it would be lonely :-)

Well, I totally misread your tone then. Your post got me thinking last night and I'm probably just going to keep editing the first post with new PRs, not new entries, that will be even easier to find them that way.

4/29/09:

Headstand press into tuck planche (what I call 1/2 of a headstand erb), finally got it (twice) without letting the feet/legs touch the floor!

Ice-cream-makers (5 reps), these felt really good and strong!

5/2/09:

Snatch: 87kg PR. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OEgU7LwxNw) Up from 85kg.

Clean & Jerk: 107kg PR. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xUbAGmSFOg) Up from 105kg.

Nice. :D

If my snatch numbers keep rising, then the BW OHS x 15reps will likely be one of my next CFN Elite Level IV standards that I'll be able to hit without specific training.
