Decided to use the weightlifting competition today as a training session.

Sn 1st - 80kg, 2nd - 85kg, 3rd (failed) - 90kg, 65kg x 1 x 5
Cl&Jrk 1st - 105kg, 2nd (failed) - 110kg, 3rd (failded) - 110kg, 75kg x 1 x 5
Didn't get round to doing the front squats and back extensions.

Greg, I've noticed that I'm failing my Jerks due to inflexible shoulders. I know that I dip slightly forward as well, which I'm working on, but would like suggestions for what I can do to improve the flexibility in my shoulder for the overhead work? Thanks.

S - 95, need to work on dropping underneath. I pretty much powered it up, caught it, and rode it down. - 75 x 1 x 5

C&J - 135, did 145 but pressed the last part of the jerk out. - 105 x 1 x 5

FS - 170, 175(F) - 135 x 2 x 2

Wtd Back Ext with 20# DB

Didn't have outdoor running gear and it's winter here in Canada so subbed rowing instead.

Snatch - heavy single; 75% of that x 1 x 5; 1 min rest on drop sets
175 -> 135 x 1 x 5

Clean & jerk - heavy single; 75% of that x 1 x 5; 1 min rest on drop sets
225 -> 175 x 1 x 5

Front squat - heavy single; 80% of that x 2 x 2
285 -> 230 x 2 x 2

Weighted back extensions - 30 total; DB behind neck; lock pelvis in place and flex/extend ONLY the spine; 2 sec pause at top
12-10-8 with 30 lb DB

300-200-100-200-300 m sprints;
2 min rest between each

My 100m benchmark was definitely a little short, more like 70 m.
Barry Weidner 2009-12-05
Snatch HS: 84kg (PR) + drop sets
C&J HS: 102kg + drop sets

Ran out of time. Had to teach class :(
Darci Anderson 2009-12-05
Does this mean 1 set of 5 reps? And what does "1 min rest on drop sets" mean?
Greg Everett 2009-12-05
Darci - 5 sets of 1 rep - check the info link at the top for more on notation. 1 min rest between the 75% sets; you choose rest while working up to the heavy single.
Greg Everett 2009-12-05
Neil -Foam rolling on T-spine, hanging from pull-up bar, kip swings on bar focusing on pushing the chest through, doorframe stretches at every angle, shoulder dislocates, face pulls..... Do some googling and you'll find a ton of good shoulder mobility drills and whole protocols.

Snatch Heavy Single 131.5# PR +5.5, 101.5 x 1 x5
Clean and Jerk 146#, 120.5 x1 x 5
need to work on depth on receipt of both of these. The Jerk is really tweaking my shoulder, but I am working hand width for it.

Pause Back Squat 205, 225

Good mornings (45, 56, 56) 3x 8

I missed Thursday and since I have done the FS and Back Ext, but not the pause back squat and GM, I thought it would be best to do it this way.

I attended a grand opening for Desert CrossFit, and participated in a demo Workout, but during my warmup I worked the Snatch.


I may be able to get the rest of the programming in later this evening, or perhaps tomorrow, we'll see how the recovery goes. I'm happy about getting 140 anyway. 145 was very close! The workout was Overhead Squats, Wall Balls, and pushups, so my legs feel like jelly
Mike Maruffi 2009-12-05

Snatch - 195# (PR) => 147# x 1 x 5

Clean & Jerk - 245# (PR) => 185# x 1 x 5
* Cleaned 255 for a PR there and missed the jerk

Front Squat - 295# => 260 x 2 x 2 (Missed 335)

Coach, got my copy of your book yesterday, and after reading the double knee bend section I got new PR's in everything. Now I introduced all new faults...hitting the bar against my quads/hips on the jump. Something new to work on.

Thanks again, and look forward to reading though the rest of the book.

Clean & Jerk - Heavy Single - 235 Lbs (94% 1RM)

Running several days behind so I can work around rest of my schedule, this is Thursday's:

Sn - 80kg(pr), 60x1x5
CJ - 110kg(pr), 82.5x1x5
Pause BS - 140kgx3

This cycle is fantastic, totally loving it. I did most of the last long cycle and liked it, but feel like this program is helping a lot more. I expected to be wore out from volume, but actually all the 1x10 and drop sets have been huge for extended practice and improving form. Equaled my previous Sn and C&J prs but much much cleaner and better feeling than the last time I reached them and still plenty of gas left over for squats. Thousands of thanks for everything you do on this site.
