Way to go partner. What was your total Kelly?
Kelly 2 | 2008-01-27
Snatch first attempt was 53kg (too much adrenaline and sent it flying over my head). Second attempt was 55kg (overcompensated for first attempt and shorted it), third attempt did 55kg cleanly (was hoping to snatch 60kg this weekend, but after missing the first two attempts was just happy to have one count :). All three clean and jerks were solid-65kg, 70kg, 75kg so I ended up with a total of 130kg (weighed in at 58.9kg). But despite the nerves and missed lifts, I had a great time and can’t wait until I can compete again at Westerns in March.

Is this the beggining of a new cycle or where are we right now? If this isn't the beggining, when did this cycle start so I can back track and start the program at the proper starting point. Cheers. The Pie, Crossfit Vancouver

Greg Everett 9 | 2008-01-28
Pie - Today is the beginning of the cycle. Josh - I love that not straining for you is a 200kg snatch deadlift.
josh everett 10 | 2008-01-28
actually I had to really stay tight to get that... still smooth & fast but 190 would have been a better call. 180 was cake & i thought 200 would be as well.

New Guy here: M/38/174/72" First ever official "olympic" workout. Lots of questions too. Very happy to have found this CA WOD. I read that for mass gains one can use 5-6 rep protocol so I think I'm gonna start by doubling the RX'd reps. The last couple weeks I've been doing the Crossfit.com workouts but calling them "heavy" as I'd do more than the RX'd weight with less reps but same format. I'm going to classify myself as a "weightlifting crossfitter" according to the article. Previous experience over the last couple years has been Bryce Lane's Ironworks stuff, then Ross Trainings 50day workout program, Crossfit dabbling on/off but went full time a couple month's ago before going to the "heavy" workouts recently. I'm skinny but I really enjoy both weightlifting and the metcons. Running isn't my cup of tea. Anyways. Here's what I did today. 72% SQ 230 5x5 SN DL 230x3 280x3 300x3 PP 140 5x5 (to light as max PP a couple days ago was 205) Chins +30 3x8 (slight kip) GHS on large balance ball with 10# overhead 3x15 I'm going to use your program on but change wed. to a rest day. Thanks for the excellent info. Todd
Greg Everett 12 | 2008-01-28
Pay close attention to recovery - Those 5x5 squats are going to wreck you in short order in combination with everything else. You may very likely find it unsustainable. Good luck.
Prochargedmopar 13 | 2008-01-28
Thanks for the tip. I may rotate in Zerchers and Fronts. I'm just super excited to find what seems to be exactly what I was looking for. Go heavy(for me) and still be able to Crossfit it up. knowing others are doing it to is awesome. Todd
Greg Everett 14 | 2008-01-28
Well definitely post your workouts on here and let's see what happens. We're always interested in seeing the results of significant modifications to the training.
Bradford Green 15 | 2008-01-28

Andy Swartz 18 | 2008-01-28
lbs for all back squat 5*2 @ 285 snatch grip dl 295 push press 5*3 @ 165 should have done 3*5 Weighted pull ups 8 @bdwt+57, 6 @bdwt+57, 5 @bdwt+57
Scotty Hagnas 19 | 2008-01-29
Modifying this cycle some, as I need to alter my training to work toward several other goals. Volume will be reduced to accommodate the extra training, and also with an eye on recovery. Straddle planche holds: 10" total, then straddle planche pushup negatives BS: 230x2x2x2x2 Sn DL 115x1; 135x1; 165x1; 205x1; 235x1 PP: 145x3; 165x3 Wtd pullups: 3 reps each minute for 7' w/45 lbs added. 2 reps ad 1 rep the last two rounds.
