What is a good replacement for sandbags?
Greg Everett 2008-02-26
If you have a sand ball (like a D-ball), that will work. Otherwise DBs for the power clean + push press and maybe a KB for the halfmoons.
Jason 2008-02-27
I just finished the METCON for the day and using a DB is challenging. With a wider-than-shoulder-width stance, set DB by right foot, reach down with left hand and pull towards left ear. It may not be the exact same motion, but I would be hard pressed to believe it is not as challenging.
And I would also like to say thank you to the Everett's for the help in setting up the CF Games.

Brother G- We call that half moon of yours a RAINBOW lift out here in Kansas. Makes sense don't you think?

IamDT- We use the DYNAMAX ball, D-ball and hold the hex head of a light dumbbell.
Paul 2008-02-27
would a single 1/2 moon rep be:
a) left -> right
b) left->right->left
Greg Everett 2008-02-27
Paul - a)

Rut - Yes, but halfmoon sounds slightly tougher than rainbow. Both are somewhat questionable.

Sn: 95lbsx3,115x2,135,155
C&J: 95lbsx3,135x2,185
Low bar BS: 95x3,135x3,185x2,225x1,275x1

Those numbers are pathetic. Felt really sloppy and weak today, so I didn't try to push too hard. Took it easy on the metcon too, did 250m row x 5 w/ a 30s rest.

IamDT 2008-02-27
In pounds-

Snatch: 105
Clean and Jerk: 135
Back Squat (high bar): 255

Not having much experience with Olympic lifting, after I worked on the heavy Olympic lifts, the back squat felt great. To be able to just drive hard with the lower body and not worry too much about technique felt really good at the time.

I am really starting to feel the "after effects" of this WOD. My joints are killing me.
ec 2008-02-27
sn - 105# (~90%), too many failed attempts at 110#
c&j - 135# (93%), did this twice - pwr cleaned both
bs - 175# (95%)

the sandbag halfmoons with 45# sandbag were ridiculous for me. im hoping part of the problem was i don't have any handles as the vid demo.... but up, extended over head each time? left - right - left = 1 rep? it took me forever. just into 2nd round at 20 min.
Dan 2008-02-28
I glad I'm not the only one missing reps. Yesterday I just could get in the groove with my snatch
The Pie 2008-02-28
cj: 205#

Metcon: subbed 60# sandbags with a 30# dball, subbed sandbag PC+J with 30# dumbells.
2 rounds+20 pullups+10 half moons.
Couldn't believe how hard the half moons were and that was at half rx'd weight on the dball. Humbling workout.
