I'm not sure about you, but I enjoy the fact that most the readers of this log will not know what a dash vault is.

Nor have I due to weather, and they were never my forte.

This wasn't as bad as it looked. The KTE really took me a lot of time. I just couldn't get them in any kind of rhythm. I'm going to start doing them in my warm-up.

Planche & Front Lever

5 x :10 tuck FL holds

7 x :5 tuck planche holds

Planche is starting to feel a bit better. Hard on the wrists. I need Ben to give me back my paralettes so I can train with those.

Split Jerk

95 x 5
125 x 5
145 x 5
160 x 5
170 x 5
185 x 5
200 x 5 (PR)

I was really happy with my performance on these. I may have been able to go for 205, but my shoulders were pretty taxed at that point. I should have taken bigger jumps in my WU, but I was feeling it out.

200 on the Jerk with a pansy Press like you have is impressive.

Your hip extension must be hella strong.

I know, it's the weirdest damn thing. I can stabilize overhead very well. My Jerk and OHS, for instance, are pretty solid. It's just the pressing that I suck at.

Made it a rest day. Feeling a little under the weather and my arms are SUPER sore from Saturday.

An article by Jeff Martin just got published in the Crossfit Journal outlining a program called "Crossfit Strength Bias". It's similar to what I'm doing and it gives more support to these hybrid programs like Gant's. One technique that CFSB uses, which I plan to start including in my own programming, is higher rep strength workouts like 20 RM and 12-7-9 ME days. In CFSB these are tacked onto the end of normal 3x5 and 3x3 strength workouts. I'll employ them in the same manner.
