Greg Everett 2 | 2008-03-30
Claude - Regular sit-up with feet anchored and holding 2 dumbells with locked elbows overhead the whole time. See this photo.

cool, thanks a lot for answering so quickly....and i am assuming a snatch deadlift is a dl from the beginning snatch position? sorry should have included that before
Greg Everett 4 | 2008-03-30
Claude - Yes - Deadlift exactly how you'd lift a snatch but without the speed and additional ankle extension/shrug.

Gotta say Aimee does not look too happy in the DB situp pic! I think I know the answer, but I am asking anyway. I am not meeting my coach tomorrow and dont have a place to lift (just a regular gym or CFNYC), would it be crazy to go to CFNYC and do Fran? MY main concern is that I have a meet 2 weeks from today and have truthfully done no metcon for months now. If (I assume) the answer is no, any thoughts on what I can do in a regular gym that will not be counterproductive? Thanks

Sarena - Squat! Deadlift! Push press!
sarena kopciel 8 | 2008-03-30
If only I could find a bar or bumpers tomorrow that would make that possible Greg! Can I work with DBs? I could FS, DL (1hand or 2) and PP with 2 DBs!
Greg Everett 9 | 2008-03-30
You can't even find a bar and iron plates! What kind of gym are you planning on going to? Curves?
sarena 10 | 2008-03-30
the gym in my building! There are a lot of those bodybars though along with a jacuzzi, a pool and tons of machines I wouldnt know what to do with!! But there are tons of DBs!
Greg Everett 11 | 2008-03-30
Weak. Do some DB snatches, cleans and jerks, and then go do some contrast hydrotherapy in the pool and jacuzzi.
sarena kopciel 12 | 2008-03-30
Thanks for the speedy responses! Will do coach! But i did email my coach if he or his lifters will be around tomorrow. Will wait and see! I am only with him a week so am not sure of schedule yet!! I do love working with him though. Do you know him, Nick Curry?

Hey all, I've just started lurking around the Catalyst Athletics site and I have a question about how today's should be completed. Do you complete all sets of each exercise before moving on to the next exercise? How much rest between sets? Please let me know if this kind of stuff is posted somewhere. I didn't see it in the WOD info page. Thanks.
Greg Everett 17 | 2008-03-31
John - Yes, the strength work should be performed as such - each exercise independently with as much rest between sets and exercises as you feel necessary (2-4 min or so). The metCons that appear are done in the CF style of rounds for time and noted accordingly.

Hi Greg, I've run into some time restrictions as I'm finishing up a thesis at school, so I was curious if there is a way to trim down the WODs somewhat so they can be done faster. My first thought was just to do crossfit for a bit, but I'm really enjoying these WODs and feel my strength needs more attention than it would get with pure crossfit. I read through your article on integrating weightlifting into crossfit and had a bit of a mental overload, so I thought it might be simpler to modify the WODs? Thanks, as always.
