Working out at the LA Fitness in Avondale AZ. It is a brand new facility, typical big box gym. I will give props to the one trainer I saw working this morning. He had a big guy who was significantly overweight doing power clean and push press for reps with 95 lb's supersetted with some ab work. I even went up to the trainer after he finished and told him nice job with the guy.

5 Minute Row
Power Snatch 45 X 2, 65 X 2 X 2, 95 X 2 X 3
Power Clean and Jerk 95 X 2 X 2, 115 X 2 X 2, 135 X 1 X 2
FS 135 X 2, 155 X 2, 165, 175, 180
Fingertip Chins on support X 2 X 6
Press 65 X 10, 85 X 6, 105 X 3

I was having a hard time today as I have some stuff on my mind that was interfering with my focus. PS felt good I marrowed my grip slightly from last week. PC no problem but my wrist was very sore, Jerk no problem. FS felt great up to 180. Funniest moment on the FS was with 135, I was in one of those racks that are angled and you step back and the rack comes out flat with the supports well when you squat deep you make a real loud noise when the bar hits the rack and it is also a good way to rearrange your dental work. Note to self step all the way out of the rack before FS'ing.

Greg please keep us posted on what is happening in your world.

We are at coach b's, on house arrest. The fires are pretty much surrounding us, so we are staying inside until they tell us we have to leave. We still can't get home but Bonsall has not been evacuated at this time.
Unfortunately we can't train due to the ash and smoke.
But we are getting lots of time on the couch...

Conditioning- all weird. kept messing up my watch and then I would get confused. I broke a sweat, that's about what I can say for today.

25-20 reps of:
Medicine ball clean + push press - 20#
Kettlbell cross chops (add 1 rep as needed to make even number) -16 kg KB
Total time: 11:13

-Mobility drills from Mike Boyles Latest artice- felt pretty good, not the same as I have been doing but same ideas behind it.
-CA WOD 10/24
-Power cleans + push jerk - should have ramped down then back up rather than just starting with my last snatch weight. The last 2 sets felt good the first 2 sets felt like crap and kind of jammed my wrist on a bad catch.
-Front squat - Flying up today, could have gone to at least 275+ I think today but I kept it sub-max
-Metcon - eliminated the 15 reps since knee was hurting a bit. I need to do more burpees, ugh my conditioning has gone to crap! Did the cleans with a dynamax ball, it was either MB, KB or barbell, and my kb clean form was a bit rusty as I smashed the heck out of my forearms when I went to try them out. KB cross chops were fun.
