Default Ado's Log

Hey, first post here as a workout log. Long time Lurker and ive been on the CrossFit boards but like these boards more as of late.

Week 3 into my second round at Gant's Hybid:
Must work out 4 days in a row this week so I'll see how that works out.

Monday Feb 23:
intramural dodgeball game for about 15 minutes
Worked on Handstands
Burgener Warm up

3 position cleans( tall, mid hang, below knees) +2 jerks x 5
empty barbell

Clean and Jerks: 5 singles
135, 155, 165, 170, 175

Back squats: 3x5
215, 220, 225

50 burpees for time:
3:14

Comments: 14 hour fast
170 and 175 CJ's i rushed into the second pull and therefore the bar was too far forward. All others felt fine and felt like i caught them on my heels.

Wed. Feb 24 2009

no fast today, need to make sure i can recover with no rest days until friday
Then i can take the weekend off

Was very p***ed off today at everything and let it all go at the gym- worked out great

Weight: 172 WTF???
Gymnastics: Frog tucks: 20s; 15s; 15s; 10s; total 1:00

Snatch
95x2; 95x2 -first pulled with arms, second i was a bit forward, 100x1 felt good,
105x1 felt slightly forward but increased the wieght
110x1 really thought about using my legs to viciously extend off the ground- helped and felt great!
115 same as above and caught it with good balance


Takeaways: really think about and drill the legs viciously extending for the second pull

( Wish i had a coach or could find the charger to my digi cam so i could get so outside input)

Deadlift 2x5:
275; 275 - ties previous pr and was easy- probably the anger kicking in,

go for DL 5RM PR next week
No metcon, gym closing on me and i have an assignment due

Felt great to let alll my anger out, feel great
