I would find it hard to believe that even though I have included a link every day this week for the CrossFit Games, that some of you may not know that already three events have taken place. Here are the results. The remainder of the action starts today! Check back on the website or come to Reebok CrossFit Back Bay and ask coaches for an update in the case that you don’t own a computer and are always connected to the internet.
Before this workout gets out of control please be aware of that the volume can crush you. Power Cleaning 75/55 pounds is no problem, even 30 times. However, if you go too fast, you can bet that the first Power Clean at 135/75 is going to feel a lot heavier than normal when you are completely out of breath. After that it will all be downhill. A good plan, good footwork, and good form will be needed for those looking to get into the 210 lbs. Power Clean. Even if you are going to scale make sure you go up in loads every 30 reps up to 4 times. Nothing fancy other than this today, it is late and I have some more handstands to do tomorrow…
Don’t forget to hook grip!,
Strength: 3 max attempts of:
Toes to Bar
WOD: 6 rounds for time of:
20 Push Press (75/55)
20 Overhead Squats (75/55)
After an internal 10 second debate as to how I would open today’s discussion, I figured this sentence was my best option. I have pushed back (by one full sentence ) the fact that I cannot wait for you all to do this workout! I just cannot help myself…I am actually sitting and smiling (talented huh!) as I type away. This little gem is actually a scaled down version of a WOD I did a while back that caught me really off guard. I enjoy OHS immensely and the loads for all the reps was below light. I started this workout in the same way you are going to (guns blazing) and even with my first two rounds done unbroken, the remainder of the workout felt like it had a personal grudge against me. The sheer quantity of reps is like getting into a fight with 240 5 year old boys. One by one, I can take ‘em out, but after a while, it will get overwhelming.
If you are thinking about pacing yourself, don’t. As soon as you walk into Reebok CrossFit Back Bay, you will note that this is a test of physical capacity and of being able to push just one more rep. This is mentally easier than most WODs because the load is by no means something that will need much focus. Instead you should force those muscles to fire away (with perfect form and safety) until the bitter end. I am personally interested in your times and since I am not around, please post your times on the comments section. Plus you don’t want to miss out on knowing what it is like to fight 240 toddlers.
That last sentence is ridiculous,
