Having to cut the program down to 4 days a week during Rugby Season so that I can still get two rest days in during the week, so I did this workout today.

Snatch: Worked up to a single of 185Lbs, more of a power snatch as I am still lousy at getting under the bar on snatches but working on it.
C&J: Heavy Single of 265Lbs, have gone heavier in the past but legs were feeling a bit heavy this morning and the shoulders are a little banged up from rugby
Back Squat: 405Lbs, again legs felt heavy
Kipping Pull-Ups: 18, 15, 12; first set was a new PR unless I count back when I weighed 190
Had to substitute weighted Sit-ups as I don't have access to a GHD

Loving the program! Just started 2 weeks ago after a year of crossfitting (had to switch as I was getting too small). These workouts are leaving me energized as opposed to the beaten down feeling I use to get from some of the longer Crossfit WODs. Thanks Greg.

rev crunch 3x15

felt like crap..havent been able to eat for couple days

quick question, does "heavy single" mean a 1rm? or does it mean just work up to something that feels heavy...ive seen other saturdays that say "max for day". is there a difference? thanks again for any help

Claude -

Heavy single means you'll take the weight up to the heaviest load you can make that day without any misses (non-technical). A true max for the day would allow 2-3 attempts.
