perfect timing on the foreman article as there has been some heated discussions on goheavy recently
Greg Everett 5 | 2008-10-01
Heated discussions about powerlifting vs olympic lifting? Never....
Alex Europa 6 | 2008-10-01
WHOA! I beat Tommi in a MetCon?! No way! I'm just glad Richard did 1/2 Nate instead... Cheers fella! ;-)
tommi k 7 | 2008-10-01
whenever there´s pull ups in a metcon, my times suck...but anyway, GOOD job Alex!
Blake M 8 | 2008-10-01
Learned something today! I can't snatch after C&J. My form was all off and I didn't feel stable at all at the bottom. Guess there is a ryhme and reason to the order of the lifts!
Richard Vanmeerbeek 9 | 2008-10-01
Snatching after the C&J was definitely a bit special.

Alex, it's on for the next metcon !

i have a question about warming up. i never sandbag on warm ups. i always warm up for at least 10 minutes before i get to lifting. i learned my lesson when i pulled a hamstring about ten years ago. my question is this: after my standard warm up should i warm up as well by lifting lighter weight?
for example, today is 100% of c&j-should i warm up with light weight before going to a full 100%, or just go straight to heavy?
Richard Vanmeerbeek 11 | 2008-10-01
Greg, I've been itching to go for a heavy deadlift but I'm strictly following the daily workouts. If possible, what would be the best time in the cycle to throw one in ?

what's the name of the one minute silence song on your video on sunday. can't find it on youtube. pretty good band.
Matt Wichlinski 13 | 2008-10-01
is there any significant difference between cod liver oil and regular fish oil?

Bill Starr swears by lecithin, I think it's a soy based product, is it worth anything?

What about dessicated liver tablets? Vitamin B12?
Aimee 14 | 2008-10-01
Marisela-
You NEVER want to just go straight to your 100%, or straight to a heavy weight. You always want to start with the bar and make jumps accordingly. So say your best clean & jerk is 110kg. You would want to do something like this: the bar, 45kg X 2, 65kg, 75kg, 85kg, 95kg, 100kg, 105kg, 110kg.
See? You are very likely to injure yourself and/or fail if you just put 110kg on the bar after you just got off the rower.
Take conservative jumps (2.5 - 5kg jumps) until you get a little more experienced, then you can start taking bigger and bigger jumps (10-15kg jumps)

C&J: Failed at 265# so I'll have to settle for 255 today
Snatch: 180#
BS: 330

Nate: 17 rounds and 5 swings

Metcon: 4:42 - 30# DB's
Greg Everett 16 | 2008-10-01
Marissella -

Check out this video and this video. You need to warm up for each exercise following your general warm-up.

"Available in All Colors" - definitely worth investing in all the OMS CDs.
Greg Everett 18 | 2008-10-01
Richard -

Throw it in on the day we do 100% CJ following that CJ. Oh wait that's today. I'd wait until the last Saturday in this 4-wk cycle then after your snatch and CJ. Do it before your squat if you want to test it.
Greg Everett 19 | 2008-10-01
Matt -

RE fish oil, check out this thread in the forum.

Couldn't tell you much on lecithin - no personal experience with it.

Liver tabs are cool. I use them occasionally as recommended by Garrett Smith. I also use a B12 supplement. Try them out and see how you feel with them. If you don't notice a difference in a couple weeks or so, don't spend the money.

C+J:230#
Sn.:165#
BS:280#

Everything felt awesome. Last three days have been perfect, lifts feeling great, no real undo soreness, I even added in some heavy snatch balances yesterday because I had the extra gas in the tank.
marisela 21 | 2008-10-01
thank you so much. i always do work up, but i thought maybe it was overkill and i was doing a lot more than i needed to. looks like i'm just being lazy. :)

thanx again.
Jonathan 22 | 2008-10-01
C&J: Up to 185# x1x1, but failed at 190#

Squat: 265# x2x2
3 rounds for time of 20-15-10 30# DB snatches (each hand) and KPU: 7:43. The snatches turned into power snatches pretty quickly.

C&J - 230lbs x 1
Sn - 145lbs x 1 x 2
Sq - 330lbs x 2 x 2

Met - 15:00

Today was really good. The C&J is coming along very well. I had a lot of confidence on all the lifts. The C&J is coming along very well. Shoulder pain is slight if any. Given the snatch was light, it felt very natural. Thanks to Greg and everybody else for answering all my stupid questions.
ken c 24 | 2008-10-01
44/6'1"/185

rough lifting day. don't think i care for the reverse order. i know now that i prefer an orderly universe where snatch comes before clean and jerk.
