My first time on this site. Do I jump from ring rows to rowing and then give myself a 30 sec rest? And complete 3 such routines?

I train at CrossFit Northern Ireland, we have just finished a 6 week Strength program which I really enjoyed and seen benefits from. So much so, that I am entering an Olympic Lifting Comp in Dublin in 2 weeks. I know I am not going to break any records, but am keen and interested in taking part.

I had a go at todays WOD -

Max Power Snatch - 70kgs/154lbs
Max Power Clean and Jerk - 90kgs/198lbs

Then scaled our own WOD -

50 High Knees
every time you come off the bar 50 Double Unders

185 lbs

C: PS:175# Fail185, PC&J:235# Fail245
BG:PS:125#, PC:175#
WOD: ring rows and rowing, hua.

I could have got 185 on the snatch but wasnt interested in tying my full snatch PR with a power snatch - aaand also I tied my full clean and jerk PR w/ the power clean & jerk. Happy days?
