so is that a pic of aimee and coach b from like the 80's or something? :)
joe luckett 2008-10-12
Looks like Sage to me. BTW, just started up the CA program again today. Spent most of the spring and summer doing the Mountain Athlete stuff, but missed the O-lifts. Kept it fairly light. Felt good.
Alex Europa 2008-10-13
Back squat - 235, 245, 255, 255, 255 (Had to find the right weight for High Bar) Snatch deadlift - 175 x 3 x 3 Push press - 165 x 5 x 5 Felt really good today. Ran out of time for the accessory work. I'll hit up some L-sit work tonight whenever I get home from work.

joe luckett, definitely Aimee, not Sage... Besides the title of the pic is 081013-aimeeBurg.jpg :P Cool picture, though. How old is it? And how long has Aimee been training the Olympic lifts for that matter?

EJM 2008-10-13
When doing the snatch deadlift, do you prescribe hips down (as if you're picking the bar off the floor for a lift) or hips up (as if you're doing a powerlifting-style deadlift)? Also, are body rows an acceptable substitute for pull-ups, if one is unable to do a pull-up?
Greg Everett 2008-10-13
EJM - See the text below today's workout for the snatch DL question. Yes, body rows are legit.Jesse - What's up with you toe-lifters? Little Miss Anna there is kicking the boys' asses. The dudes need to get that weight back onto the heels (and Anil needs to drop his hips about 3 ft in the snatch start position). Anna - you're moving to CA to train with us. You don't have a say in the matter. Start packing. Congrats on all the records everyone.

Jesse Woody 2008-10-13
Hehe, that's why I mentioned the many technical flaws ;) What do you think o-lifts after 3 years of crossfit wod's and powerlifting squats and deadlifts should look like anyway! :p Don't give anna a big head...she'll outgrow her bangs! (and yes she's kicking ass, percentage-wise her PR's are lightyears ahead of ours too :p)
Greg Everett 2008-10-13
Jesse -Oh.... I told you so.
Jesse Woody 2008-10-13
Indeed you did ;) Thanks for the feedback, expect more heel-centric lifts in 4 weeks or your money back! ...oh, and if anna moves to California Anil and I will have to fight you :p
ADR 2008-10-14
Greg - Gotcha - hips and heels down...Thanks for the advise! As for Anna - She's awesome...she has enough ammo to give Jesse and I an earful for the next 4 weeks. Watch out on the next max/max day!
Allen Y 2008-10-14
