For those who haven't seen in, I tried to explain the WOD programming in greater detail in this month's PM. Article here:

Good stuff,

For those that are only able to hit the WOD's M-F, how would you adjust it? I tried just running it straight through doing the Friday workout on Thursday and Saturday on Friday but this left me feeling like crapola. Any other suggestions?

I'd drop the Friday workout and replace it with Saturday's. See how that works for you.

On today's Muscle Snatch + Snatch Balance, does the 1 + 2 x 3 mean

one muscle snatch plus two snatch balances
done for three sets

Or is it something else?

Two things:

I love the CA WOD, did my first one this morning. Derek Simonds was visiting here from out of town and we did the workout this morning. Awesome. Thank you Greg, the metcon was absolutely perfect (I modified a tiny bit). I'm definitely going to start a workout journal here at the PMenu. Between a mostly gymnastics warmup, the OL workout, and the short-but-so-sweet metcon finisher, I finally have something I'll be happy with for a long time.

This workout, along with the company, really lit a fire under my butt to get the group classes started at the gym (soon to be CF Tucson). Thanks Derek!

Just got on board today, starting with the October workouts. My recent CrossFit activities have left me light and weak.

Greg, since I'm a month behind (I wanted to start in the strength phase), do you still want me to post results on the WOD blog? I didn't know if you were tracking the data or not.

Looking forward to it.
