I've been lurking around the mainpage and the forums long enough so I thought it might be time to try a cycle!

Thanks much Greg and Aimee for the great site and resources.

Question about this cycle: This will be my first time trying the CA WOD cycle. I've been doing Gant's Hybrid for the past couple of months but with this 10 week cycle will there be a strength phase? Just wondering if a newb like myself will struggle more with this type cycle than with your previous 16 week cycles.

Stew - You'll be fine on this cycle - it has a strength phase built in.

new cycle looks interesting already. Can't wait to start it.

Great customer service as well from the store. All purchases arrived earlier than expected which is rare these days.

Started today. Thought it better to start with day 1.

Snatch 139# x 2 sets of 3
Snatch Pull (lacked extension on 1, but god to a good shrug otherwise) 179# x 3 x 3
Snatch DL 179# x 3 x 3
FS 189# x 3 x 5
Weighted GHD supersetted with FS for lack of time w/25# x 3 sets of 8

Nice break from a lot of CF met-cons recently. Everything but the first wobbly snatch felt good. Breathing up on last 2... still a little late to work.

2 questions... if old comments are checked,
1 - Did I get the sets and reps right?
2 - Do people normally hit some calisthenics (CFWU) during the warm-up? I want to maintain strength and strength endurance for CF as I improve my oly lifts.

Sorry if these are repeat Qs, but i didn't find them in the FAQ.

Greg Everett 2009-05-26
Brett - 1. Looks like you got the sets and reps reversed. Check the info link at the top of the WOD (not the faq at the very top of the page).2. There are 2-3 metCons/week here
