That is my client Don!
That was a PR clean & jerk for him at 95kg!
He has since cleaned 100, barely missing the jerk... and only a week later!

Greg/Aimee, for the next three weeks I will only be able to workout on the weekends. What is the best approach for me to take for maintenance until I can jump back into the WOD? Should I just do the M & T WOD?
Greg Everett 2008-10-14
Gregory - I'd snatch and clean & jerk to heavy singles; then front squat to a heavy single, switch to back squat for a heavy single (i.e. let's say you FS up to 100kg x 1. take your normal rest, then back squat 100 x 1, then keep going up from there until you hit your heavy single BS).

I would like to get on board your program tomorrow and give it a good run through this cycle.I have been crossfitting solid for 9 months and I am looking for a new challenge ,plus I would like to get bloody explosive.
Question, rest periods, is it do ya best and see how you feel or a desired break.
Great meeting you on the weekend ,I learnt plenty off ya .
(I am the Aussie Rugby League guy from the cert)
cheers mate

Nice to read something by Matt Foreman, good article. I always read Matt's posts from the early Oly forums and never knew he started in pling. After oling for several years, did he not go back to powerlifting? I thought I saw some results from a few meets(pacific northwest) that he had entered or maybe it was a different M Foreman. Interesting to read about that transformation also.
Greg Everett 2008-10-14
Ben - For the rest periods, just take what you feel you need - 2-4 min or so. Good to meet you too - have fun with the training.

Missed Monday workout so combined:
Muscle snatch - 55kg
3-position sn - 47kg x 3 (harder than they looked on paper)
3-position c&j - 57kg x 3
Back squat - 95kg x 3 x 5 (went better than I thought)
Snatch deadlift - 80kg x 3 x 3
Push press - 70kg x 3 x 1 (brain fart) then 70kg x 2 x 5

Will probably do Wednesdays workout on Thursday. This should put me in a good place for Saturday and Sunday. Looking forward to the seminar.

I bought a crossfit hd bar and used it for the first time today. Let me just tell ya, AMAZING difference, for the good. I have been using 32 mm powerbars with no flex and no spin. The lifts were smoother and my thumb actually stayed put in my hook grip. It was actually hard to keep the bar from rolling out of my hands in the clean position, but this is a nice problem to have. I can only imagine what a really good weightlifting bar would be like?
Jesse Woody 2008-10-14
3pos. Snatch: 125#x3 sets
one muscle snatch at 125# (forgot about it at the beginning :p)
3pos. Clean: 165#x3 sets

Worked about 15-20 reps of 95# snatches with Anil throughout the evening working on knees-out form. Sore as hell from yesterday too.
Justin "Thor" 2008-10-14
At Lost Battalion to begin training there for a while... $100 for a year has to be the best bargain in NYC. Anyways, who knew I could work so hard doing light snatches and cleans from the high hang and working on pulling from the floor properly? Big props to Greg and Aimee because coach Dreschler said Leslie and I didnt look too bad and thats directly related to the seminar, dvd, and book. So thanks again.
SD_Mikey 2008-10-14
Nice job Don!
Tim 2008-10-14

3 pos sn: 50,55,60

I could of done more burpees but I was taking it easy since im not used to circuits, live and learn I guess.
