Thanks for the last cycle. I had my first competition this weekend in Colorado at the USAW/CrossFit meet. It was an absolute blast. Finished 3rd in the 94kg class with 247(108/139) total. Both are PR's. I felt fantastic! Thanks again for the programming!

Greg, I'm looking at competing in a meet on November 20th and wanted to follow your programing. Will this 9 week cycle have a peaking phase anywhere near that date? Thanks,

After a few months away I'm back in the gym and starting with this new cycle.

Snatch/Hang Power Snatch/Hang Snatch @ 60
Clean/Hang Power Clean/Jerk @ 80.

Looking forward to it!

DJ - It will peak Dec 4th. What I would suggest is going back through the archives and finding a cycle that you can time to hit Nov 20. I would suggest doing this one. It's 6 weeks including a transition week in the beginning, so if you start it on Monday the 11th, it will peak for Nov 20th.Congrats on your wedding.

Thanks for both the advice and the well wishes. I will let you know how things go...

Take care.

Hi Greg.

I am curios about the "snatch+hang power snatch+hang snatch"-combo of today. Is it all about speed in the last lift, or?

Greg Everett 2011-10-03
Mikkel - Speed and position. Reinforcing the timing of exploding high in the pull and forcing you to be more aggressive at the top by not only limiting the distance/time you have to accelerate the bar, but doing it while somewhat fatigued from the previous reps as well.
Mikkel H 2011-10-03
Thanks for your answer, Greg. It makes good sense and I tried it today. It worked out quite well! :)

Hey Mr. Everett,
Just started the 10x3 cycle, but I am unable to get into a facility on the weekends to train. What do you suggest I do for the fifth day of training? Should I just take out mid-week rest day or one of the training sessions so I can fit it in during the week? Thank you...Also, say hello to Patrick Kern for me please. He was a colleague of mine at Azusa Pacific and I've heard he is doing great things. Thanks again...

Joseph -

Drop Thursday and do Saturday's workout on Friday. If there are things on Thu that you need to work on, swap them w something on Tues that you don't need as much.
