I am having a great time with these WODs in the Singapore Marriott! They have a Model C rower and I have been improvising with dumbells and the smith machine. I got some strange looks using an aerobic step in the smith machine to get in position for the Snatch DL...lol. I am the only one sweating in this gyms which is surprisingly used by at least 1/2 a dozen people all the time. Thanks for the Wods...keep them coming.

What's Aimee doing in that pic?
Greg Everett 6 | 2007-11-28
She's doing trap-bar deadlifts on a riser--so basically they have the depth of a squat but the load isn't on her back. She had an injury and couldn't rack a bar on her shoulders or front squat for more than a single, so she was doing these as a substitute for a while, thanks to a suggestion by Tracey Fober.

A Day behind. Did 11/27 workout. Did not go well. My body was completely wasted due to the workout on 11/26. Had to drop to 50% for 3 Position Snatch and Muscle Snatch. I hope today's workout will go better for me tomorrow.
ec 14 | 2007-11-28
fs 105# cln pulls 135, 140, 145# bnk jk 125# cfb wod was 'annie' did that for my metcon, 7 min
ec 15 | 2007-11-28
greg - for some reason, im not hitting bnk jerks very cleanly. im assuming i should i keep working bnk (as this should eventually surpass the load i can lift from the front?) ... or do them from the front and hit higher weight - for now?
Greg Everett 16 | 2007-11-28
Well what's the reason? Post a video if you can. I'd be willing to bet you're pushing your hips back and dropping your chest when you dip. Keep working them when they're prescribed up to whatever weight at which you fail, then switch to the front to get as heavy as possible that day.
ec 17 | 2007-11-28
got it - will try to get someone around next time. i haven't found a grip width i like either...should be same width as from the front, no?
Greg Everett 18 | 2007-11-28
Yes, same grip width for front and back.

1st workout: FS: 195x3x3x3x3x3 CP: 210x3;215x2;220x1 JBN: 135,155,175,195 I'm starting to like these. 2nd workout: Front plank x 3' x 2:15' x 2' Plank L x 2' x 90" x 75" Plank R x 2' x 90" x 75" 16:45' total in the plank.... I alternated between reading a book and heckling a few friends while doing these. Maybe I should switch to elbow levers and extended QDR holds instead? 3 rounds: 10 burpees 10 sandbag cleans 62.5 lbs (35% BW) Row 300m 8:55' Smoked. 3rd session: 30 min. foam roll/tennis ball + full body joint mobility.
