    A. worked up to 115 before starting to feel it in my hip and pulled the plug. Got some great advise from Jeremy
    B. 23:39 1 ab mat for HSPUs, everything else Rx

  2. Staci

    Oly Lifting: 125# Snatch (5#PR)
    WOD: 2 rounds with 1 abmat and 1.5 pood (back seized up, so couldn’t complete last round) 🙁

  3. Steve Vinz

    A. Hang Squat Snatch — 95 lbs.
    B. HSPU — Blue Bands, T2B, Power Swings — 1.5 Pood.
    C. 150 Russian Swings
    Good workout, tough on the shoulders.

  4. Cally Vinz

    WOD 13:07 (lying T2B, Push press with weights and Power Swings- lots of scaling on this one). Hang Snatch 65#, getting better. Need to join the oly class this Fall!

  5. DK

    Got some good snatch practice in, focusing on catching in the hole.
    WOD : 10:16 scaled and Addison had me do an extra round. 10, 20, 20 13:26 I think.
    Good WOD!

    CrossFit, 6:30 pm class

    A. 5 x 1 – 2 x Hang Squat Snatch (Below the knee) w/90 Sec Rest
    I practiced here, light bar with a 10lb plate on either side, mostly for balance. Definitely a practice session. More reps than Rx, but it was about balance and getting the feel for it.

    B. AFAP
    3 Rounds
    20 x HSPU “2012 Regionals”
    I so comped this one, as usual. HSPUs were from the waist with feet up on a box for two rounds, and half reps, and switched to push presses with blue-taped kettlebells for the last. Did not achieve the level of awesome that Scott did with his kipped HSPUs, not giving up until he’d achieved his last fucking rep. He was #AWESOMESAUCE

    20 x T2B
    1 set knees to elbows, 2 sets lying leg raises. Clearly need more ab work. As I clearly need more everything work.

    20 x Power Swings (Stop and Go’s) @ 2 pood /1.5 pood
    Did the blue-taped…think that’s 1 pood.

    C. 50 x Hollow rocks
    Didn’t do. DID do 2 sets of 10 push presses with blue-taped kettlebells while Scott was doing his hero thing with the HSPU, so I gave myself a virtual bronze star, and then took it away from myself for not doing at least one wall crawl.

    Came 30 minutes early, did mobility work…which made me feel awesome, ready to go. Knees are getting better, hips are getting better. I still suck at mobility, which is OK, because I’m working and improving. The 15 burpees in the warmup were done with enthusiasm, and probably the best form to date. Which isn’t saying much.

    I was planning to do a few sets of powerlifting after supper tonight, but I was pretty well trashed by CF today. Which is fine; I’m trying to cut BW and fat for the next 6 weeks, and my strategy is CrossFit, CrossFit, CrossFit, and a lean paleo diet.
