Can someone tell me what a jumping sit-up is? thnx
Allen Y 2007-10-16

Check out this link it's 1/4 through the video http://www.performancemenu.com/daily/video/leoWorkout3.mov

It's basically a situp with enough momentum to stand-up and do a jump.

I think when Greg made this workout he was having a "muhahaha" moment.

When a workout says 20% BW with dumbbells, does that mean each dumbbell should be 20% of BW or both bells added together?

Greg Everett 2007-10-16
Each DB should be around 20% of bodyweight. So for example, at about 205lbs, I'd use 40lb dumbbells.

CTB the explaination for the jumping sit-up is about 4 inches under the exercise prescription for the day. You gotta read the whole deal, homie...

Mus sn+ Sn Bal 2(1+1)x5 = 65,85,95,105,115lbs
PC&J = 95,135,155,185,195,205,215(F),175,175lbs
This is 10lbs below my PR squat cln. Need to figure out whats wrong that.

4 rounds:
10 jumping situps
12 DB PP, 35lbs
15 PC, 95lbs (subbed these for zerchers)
Forgot to set a timer for the metcon. Didn't feel like I was moving super fast, so I'd say ~15minutes.

Mu Sn+Sn Bal: 55,65,75,85,95 lbs Starting to balk at dropping under 95 quickly.
PC+J: 135x1;155x1;175x1;150x1x1
WOD as prescribed, 30 lb DBs and 58 lb "sandbag"
15:55' That sucked!
The explosive situps were fun, the PP easy, but those cleans... I hadn't gotten my little bags for sand yet, so I put 20 lb and 12 lb Dynamax med balls into a duffel bag, along with a 26 lb homemade D-ball. A bit of padding, and everything fit perfectly. Two problems: the large diameter made the zercher catch/squat brutal, and then halfway thru the first set - the d-ball throat punched me on the catch. Ouch.

mu sn/sn bal, 55#x2, 65#x3 (boy are mu sn's tough!)
pc/j: failed a few times at 125# before hitting it, dropped back to 105#x2

metcon, 15:56, a bit of hand assistance on the j sit ups, 35# dbs, and 45# sandbag... cause thats all the sand i have... for now.
Martin Schap 2007-10-16

PC+J 135, 145, 155(f), 125, 125

No MetCon
joe wheeler 2007-11-16
muscle sn + sn balance: 40-45-47-47-50kg
(was ready to go heavier, but I couldn't drop, so no failure, and it was cramped with humans)

pwr cln + jerk: work up to 65 + 55-55 (same problem)

subbed hang pwr cln with 40kg for the sandbag. This really fries my grip, which is my weakest link.

I usually don't time these metcons and ust go as quick as I can. This was solid.
joe wheeler 2007-11-16
And I am switching today and yesterday so will do yesterday tomorrow. Reason: access to equipment.
