For exercise substitutions the CrossFit FAQ is great...http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/faq.html. As you can see from my entry, I subbed clubbell swipes and SDHPs for rowing (I don't have a rower). Do what you need to do!

I believe this is the second week of this Bulgarian cycle...see the CA WOD info for more details...http://performancemenu.com/daily/index.php?show=about

So, doing those weighted rope climbs yesterday was a bad idea, especially after those cross-chops. My elbows are starting to hurt.

Sn: 142#
CJ: 198#
FS: 238#

MetCon w/ 30" box and 80# bag: 16:12
Sam Cannons 2008-01-09
Great position in that picture
ec 2008-01-09
sn - 95#
c&j - 125#

i do like the 90% doesn't feel so heavy anymore.

i don't like that my quads seem to have tripled in size with this cycle. i skipped the fs today.

did helen for my metcon instead - 10:42, well off my pr.
AW 2008-01-09

Whew, was feeling awfully energetic today.

C&J: 1x 185, 185, 195 (Fail)

5 rounds of:
3 complexes of; Squat Clean, Front Squat, Push Jerk, Back Squat, Push Jerk from Back w/135lbs
-Exactly 1 minute rest between rounds
Scotty Hagnas 2008-01-09
SN: 120x1 Felt good.
C&J: 180x1 Felt easy; I entertained the thought of going for a PR, but thought better of it.
FS: 235x2x2 Still heavy.

Metcon: 2 rounds, as I ran out of time before my next client. This one sucked.
10 box jumps 24"
20 sandbag power cleans 30% - 52.5 lbs.
row 600m
30" rest
3:29' 1st round; 4:53' second

Planches, plus a few back levers and shoulder stands on the rings done later. Lots of recovery work.

Off to California for the weekend; hopefully I can get in the workouts while there.
mike 2008-01-10
SN 75kg
CJ 95
Clean + FS x 2 = 95*2

I guess I am on the other side of the recovery fence from EC, The 90% are feeling more and more like 100%

Skipped Metcon because of new ring to play with
Justin Fricke 2008-01-10
Snatch 160#
C/J 230#
FS 255#

Felt good
Gordo 2008-02-06
Snatch 107

These all felt much better than Monday and I don't think it was because of just one each...
