On Push Press, is that 4 sets of 1 or 1 set of 4?

quick question- starting week 3 of ca wods after bout a year of xfit, really liking it, but experiencing some serious joint pain, especially in elbows and shoulders, should this be expected? any tips on alleviating some of it? thanks again and thanks for great workouts

Some joint pain is typical when switching to so much snatching and jerking, but make sure it remains only minor and ice as much as you can. You may need to back off a bit on the volume until you adjust to the workload, but your joints will become conditioned to the work over time.

Would it be bad to start with your program in the middle or should i wait till you start a new cycle? I am sick of being weak.
Thanks,

Dutch

Go ahead and jump in - just know that this week will be light in terms of both weight and volume in prep for record attempts on Saturday. The next 4 weeks will be very classic-lift intensive, so if you want to ease into it a bit more, you can start at the beginning of the current cycle.
