Greg,

I wanted to post and say that I just wrapped up the first mesocycle of the CA WODs (I went back and started from the beginning) and I am loving the workouts! My C and J went from never having done it heavy to a PR of 197lbs at a bodyweight of 170lbs. I also snatched 158lbs (still have tons of problems here...) and managed a FS of 215.

Also, I wanted to get any ideas from anyone out there on a solid weightlifting reference book of sorts, does that exist? I have "The Weightlifting Encyclopedia" by Drechsler but I'm hoping to find something with more illustrations/pictures.

Thanks again!

Dreid -

There's nothing out there satisfactory in my opinion. If you can be patient, there will be in the next few months.

1. coach b warm-up
2. sn complex: 40,50, 4 sets @ 60k
3. Tall clean for sets of 2: 70,90,110,120,120
replacing met con with 12-15 40yd sprints w/ full recovery. I enjoy running & hate rowing + I'm going to take my dog w/ me.

If you have a new O lifting book coming, don't name it after a Minor Threat song. Maybe AF, "Victim in Pain" would be good.
Bradford Green 11 | 2008-02-01
Got access to a precious C2... so round 2 of metcon:
8:15 rx'd
Tim Wheeler 12 | 2008-02-01
Hey Greg what do you think of the book "Essentials of Weightlifting and Strength Training" by that Egyptian MD. It has a lot of pictures at least.
Craig Snyder 13 | 2008-02-02
Power snatch-OHS-snatch balance
45x3, 65x2, 75x4
Tall clean 65#, doubles x5

Met con:
7 (or 8) rounds of:
30 second rope sprint
5 burpees

I lost count and I am pretty sure this was 8 rounds and not 7. I really do need to get a rower. I feel like I am missing out.
