I hate to ask but is there something missing from the MetCon? A prescribed rest between rounds or something much worse?
Greg Everett 2009-01-06
Yes, sorry about that.
Matt Dyson 2009-01-06
Thanks Greg, sorry everyone else. I guess we would all have been happy with just the rowing?
tom a 2009-01-06
much better, i guess...

Can't wait to do this today! My strength has been steadily increasing over these last 4 weeks. So impressed at the programming it goes without saying I'll be sticking to the CA WODs for as long as I can move weight.

LT Barnes 2009-01-07
I have just found this performance website today and I have a question or two. First, when it says heavy single what does that mean? is that like 1,1,1,1,1,1,1 on crossfit or is it like a HIT set where you just warm up until you reach your max? Second, what are the percentages out to the side? is that 90-95% of your 1RM? Any help would be great, thanks.

By the way im no noob to this, i have been cross fitting for a year this month and i am a strength and conditioning coach at a local high school and they all love crossfit and oly lifting. Im just looking for more ways to challenge myself in a more specificly athletic sense. Thanks and God bless.

LT Barnes - RE heavy single, check out the "info" link at the top of the WOD. Yes, %s are of the exercise's 1RM (unless it's noted that they're of another exercise's 1RM, such as in the case of a snatch pull using a % of your snatch).
Minh/25/M/5'9/170/WY 2009-01-07
FS: 275x1x3 (initial record)
(first time ever front squatting to a single hvy, had more in me)

RJ: 225x1x3
(Using the lighter weight was just like snatch balance. Drive the bar up to hard and it would be still moving up when I tried to lower into lunge, pulling me off balance.)

DB flat bench press: 100x5x4, 125x3x1
(Haven't done db bench in awhile. Would have used bar but this morning was apparently national bench day.)

No Metcon- yesterdays metcon re-aggravated my cold. So I'm laying off the Metcon's until I'm 100% well.
Minh Tran 2009-01-07
Error in Front Squat post... I only did 275 once for one set.

Started yesterdays WOD, but had to stop half way through due to a migraine. What is your recommendation if a WOD is missed during this 16 week cycle. Should I make it up today or just go with today's posted WOD. Thank you in advance.

Greg Everett 2009-01-07
Zionna -If it's a heavy squat/pull/press day, try to make it up the next day (instead of that day's w/o). If it's a lighter/tech day, just skip it. During the sn/cj/squat cycles, same idea - try to make up the heavy days the next day if possible. If you can't by then, skip it.
JP 2009-01-07

I add the workouts to my calendar a day ahead, but unlike Matt, I did not pay any attention to what the workout was for today until I started doing it. I must have sat on the C2 scratching my head for at least two minutes trying to figure out how to do three rounds of 400m row. I finally ran upstairs and logged on to to see what I had missed. Too funny!
