discovered the website last week when you posted the link on crossfit. it looks fantastic! been doing crossfit for a while now and really wanted to start getting better at the oly lifts and then bam...your site shows up. perfect timing!

going to do today's wod after work. going to be in a crossfit total competition in houston next month so my question is do you think i should do regular deadlifts and strict shoulder press in this workout when training for the cft or stay with the oly lifting parts of this wod as rx'd?

again thanks for the site. so much great training structure for free is much appreciated.

also, i know the turkish get up but didn't see a description of the turkish get up sit up in the info section. in my novice head i'm thinking the body position coming up is more like a sit up rather than shifted to the side like in a regular turkish get up. but i don't know for sure. can somebody help me out here?
Aimee 2008-02-11
Ken- You still want to shift a little to the side. You basically want to do the same movement you would do if you were going to perform a full TGU, you just stop when you are getting to the point at which you're sitting straight up and posting on your free hand

Ken -

You may want to press instead of push press, and throw in a second pressing day on Wed (lighter) and Sat (heavy - after sn/cj/sqt).
ken c 2008-02-11

thanks. so its just the sitting up part of the turkish get up but then you don't get up? cool i can handle that.

greg everett

thanks a lot. will do. think i will do regular deadlift here instead of snatch deadlift. let me know if you think that's not the right way to go.

Silly question 8 TGU, 4 and 4 or 8 each side?
Joe 2008-02-11
BS 95KG 5x2
SN DL 70, 75,80,85,90,95,100,110,112KG
Push Pr 77KG
Pull Ups 4, 3
TGU SU 3x8 53#

So how many sets would be a good target for getting to a single(3-5)? My Push Press and pull ups sucked because I didn't feel that energetic or I could just be a wuss.

Ken -

If you're going to sub regular DLs on the snatch DL days, use a slightly lighter weight than the other day - maybe 80-90%.

Luca -

8 on each side.

Greg Everett 2008-02-11
James - In 2 weeks (including the current week). But I'd recommend jumping in now rather than waiting - the next cycle will be pretty brutal, so this will help you transition.

press: 140 145 150 155 155
weighted pu: 35 45 40
turkish gu su: 16k 20k 24k

all weights in pounds except for tgu su. that was pretty rough. only took me about an hour and a half. geez. first time ever doing anything turkish. felt alright. 24k was pretty heavy for me. i'll need to get on this cycle if i'm going to keep up. this was the 3rd work day for me and it felt like it.

greg everett

didn't get the message to back off the deadlifts until after the workout. that would have made things much better but what the hell. thanks for the help.
