all that's missing is the pull-up bar, but that set-up is sweet!

Comment #5 - Posted by: ryan at September 28, 2009 4:45 PM

It's crazy how each of those guys looks exactly the same! I wonder where they found them?

Comment #6 - Posted by: phil at September 28, 2009 4:48 PM

Hey mas! Nice set-up. I had no idea you were one of the X-men, able to do multiple CF exercises at a single time! Looks great. Congrats on a Main Page photo-op.*


*From Sunday musings...complimenting a fellow Crossfitter on his garage gym set-up is just one more way to say "I love you"...

Comment #7 - Posted by: bingo at September 28, 2009 4:49 PM

Cool,favourite lift !
cannae do it! banned in the gym ! by little people sitting at a desk with no idea about it,except it's not biceps curls !

Comment #8 - Posted by: Pedro Barrera,Scotland at September 28, 2009 4:52 PM

I'm gonna snatch 155 tomorrow.

Comment #9 - Posted by: DJD at September 28, 2009 4:52 PM

Thanks a million Bingo, your musings on Sunday were truly excellent, as usual, (yet another way to say "I love you"). Also, thanks Ryan, my heavy-duty pullup-bar is just through that garage door, and is actually my favorite Crossfit place to be--perhaps a future photo.

Thanks to the best illustrator in the world, joalmorris.com for the fantastic photo-shop work.

I'm cuckoo for 2x4's!

When did they post the new speciality certification, "Movement and Mobility" taught by Coach Kelly Starrett? After seeing those videos in the Journal, I can't wait to go to the certification in person.

And that photo kinda weirds me out a little. I mean, I know CrossFitters are superhuman, but...

Comment #13 - Posted by: Mike, Ft Benning at September 28, 2009 5:17 PM

That is porbally the coolest pic ive seen in a while, beside the Crossfit Ramstein pic on the A-blog.

So that's how you guys out there get such great times!!

Comment #16 - Posted by: Trudge at September 28, 2009 6:00 PM

At long last...time to start following the main site since nobody in Baltimore is open in the morning.

I expect some funny looks on the warmup but at least it's only snatch for day 1..

Comment #17 - Posted by: Pete T at September 28, 2009 6:10 PM

Sweet set up mas! very organic!

Comment #18 - Posted by: Chuck O at September 28, 2009 6:15 PM

cool pic, but whats the deal with the guy all the way on the right? he throughs no shadow... freaks me out

Comment #19 - Posted by: dave at September 28, 2009 6:20 PM

Anyone have any wisdom to share about running shoes? Nike Free? Vibram Fives? Anyone tried barefoot with any success?

Comment #20 - Posted by: Chris at September 28, 2009 6:25 PM

Do I max out on these sets?

Comment #21 - Posted by: Thomas at September 28, 2009 6:37 PM

One of my favorites! Just in time to get back into CF.

Comment #22 - Posted by: JRR at September 28, 2009 6:43 PM

What's our previous workout compare link for this one?

Comment #23 - Posted by: Matthew at September 28, 2009 6:51 PM

Is there any way "mas" could post some other pics from different angles of this awesome equipment? How about the specs on some of them, too? It would be greatly appreciated.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Keith at September 28, 2009 6:58 PM

Nice set up. That is called American ingenuity.

Ahh, there's nothing like a good snatch.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Scott CFathens at September 28, 2009 7:19 PM

All that from a guy who can fly airplanes and do 58 pullups and is over age 50! Way to go MAS! Love affair with 2x4s indeed! Congrats my friend, Paul

Comment #27 - Posted by: Apolloswabbie 6'2" 205 45 yoa at September 28, 2009 7:20 PM

My gym doesn't allow any olympic lifts - anyone have a good suggestion for a sub?

(i know, i know - find a new gym. as soon as i graduate...)

Comment #28 - Posted by: Randy at September 28, 2009 7:20 PM

mas
I knew you were fast but not so fast to get into four separate exercises in one photo! That's fast. Awesome setup too. Congrats!
I know your pullup bar is right around the corner...
Good thing you didn't take down your Christmas lights yet 'cause it's only a couple more months...

Comment #29 - Posted by: jon h M/47/145 at September 28, 2009 7:24 PM

Thanks for the 1rm snatch WOD coach! I've been waiting for this for a while. This is better than Christmas!

Comment #30 - Posted by: JonC at September 28, 2009 7:25 PM

Wooden weight racks=looming disaster

Comment #31 - Posted by: RRD at September 28, 2009 7:28 PM

#20: I run with the Vibram Five Fingers on a lot of my runs. Anytime I run on the grass, track, sand, treadmill (i hate these) or short distance on the road I use. Being military we still like to do 7+mi runs and I can't do those on the road with them. My feet just end up hurting too much. Working on it

They take a little getting used to. If you haven't been running BoF yet, expect very sore feet and calves. If you have it won't take nearly as long to get used to em but you will still be using a lot of feet muscles you didn't know you had. I suggest doing a lot of walking in them too. I walk everywhere in them.

Actually, i do everything in them. I have ran, gone shopping, rock climbed, scuba dived, skydived, etc with them. Really the only downside I feel with them is since you don't wear socks they start to stink... a lot. I wash them every week and they still have a bit of that foot odor. Oh well, still worth it to me.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Nick S at September 28, 2009 7:29 PM

hey Randy, just do it anyway and if they say something say sorry i didn't know. You're doing snatches tomorrow and when they get heavy it's nice to dump them so tell them you didn't know you weren't allowed to do that either. After you get warned repeatedly simply go straight to lying, like say i didn't do a snatch and it must have been somebody else that dropped that weight on the floor. If they catch you red handed, then simply say it was an accident and that you didn't mean to do it.

Comment #33 - Posted by: thats right at September 28, 2009 7:32 PM

silly question: just started trying these workouts on my own and i have no idea what the 1-1-1-1-1-1... represents. sorry! please help!

Comment #34 - Posted by: that girl at September 28, 2009 7:35 PM

oh yeah Randy, if that doesn't work out for you, then snatch dumbells, but i don't foresee you having any problems with the earlier advice.

Comment #35 - Posted by: thats right at September 28, 2009 7:36 PM

hey that girl, the 1-1-1-1-1-1- means do 1 rep at a time with increasingly heavy weight. Max out, go heavy. Missed lifts count (if you want)

Comment #36 - Posted by: that guy at September 28, 2009 7:39 PM

Make up "Angie"...10:27 pr

PROPS TO THE FRAT

Comment #37 - Posted by: s'more at September 28, 2009 7:47 PM

@thats right:

Unfortunately, that wouldn't work...

There are 5 of us that do CrossFit together, and they've already yelled at us in the past for doing cleans. Also, space constraints mean that we wouldn't be able to do it a) discretely or b) where we could dump the weight safely.

I'll plan on DB snatches unless someone has a better suggestion. Thanks!

Comment #38 - Posted by: Randy at September 28, 2009 8:11 PM

@37: whoops.

discreetly*

Comment #39 - Posted by: Randy at September 28, 2009 8:12 PM

I just started following and participating in Crossfit WODs, and can someone explain to me what
for example:
Snatch 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps means.

I know what a snatch is, but how do I follow the reps and sets?

anyone care to give me a brief explanation?

Thankyou.

Comment #40 - Posted by: Noal Dubois at September 28, 2009 8:21 PM

If i really don't feel comfortable doing full squat snatches are power snatches acceptable? My gym doesn't have bumper weights so i can't drop them, and the full squat on snatches makes me feel pretty off balanced.

Also, for you Paleo guys out there. I am slowly building myself into a paleo diet (w/ milk). I am used to eating an almond butter/fruit only preserve on whole wheat bread for breakfast. I am about out of bread now and need something to replace that bread with. Any suggestions?

Comment #41 - Posted by: Nick S at September 28, 2009 8:22 PM

Complete as many rounds as possible 20 minutes of:
95 pound Thruster, 5 reps
95 pound Hang Powercleans, 7 reps
95 pound Sumo Deadlift High-pull, 10 reps
done with #65 8 rounds, plus 5 thrusters and 5 hpcs :) HELLA STOKED!!! up a whole round from last month....one word... PALEO!
Let's see some big numbers ladies!!! GO FRAT GO!!

Comment #42 - Posted by: Cookie at September 28, 2009 8:28 PM

Nick S:
Take out the fruit preserve and load the almond butter, load it, on a banana, an apple, or a spoon (by itself). After mixing my jar, I sprinkle cinnamon in it and then mix the top 1/2" with the cinnamon and, voila - deliciousness! The bread cravings will go away, trust me, the bulk of my diet used to be peanut-butter sandwiches. The sugar cravings take a while to go away. I still eat a little, mostly in form of extra dark chocolate only after supper. Fruit and nuts do help the cravings.

Snatches (Burg WU)
95x3, 135, 165, 185, 195, 205, 210F

Why'd I drop that last one! I had it clean and balanced. Soft in the bottom.

First time using the shoulder since rehab began 6 weeks ago. Fingers crossed.

I would like to see some additional views of your wooden equipment too mas. That's is a pretty sweet set up. Especially the glute ham set up. I need to make one of them. I have plenty of wood around so I can figure it out, but any help you would share would be greatly apppreciated!

Comment #46 - Posted by: Shannon at September 28, 2009 8:43 PM

oops, I posted that under my wife's name!!! I would take any info or pics you have! Thanks!

Nick S at September 28, 2009 8:22 PM

I second Stephen. Almond butter on fruit is insane, and constitutes a sizeable portion of my fat intake.

Comment #48 - Posted by: Goat 33/M/185/5'-11" at September 28, 2009 9:04 PM

#39, it is 7 single repetitions. Do a snatch, pause (add weight), do another, add weight..etc..

Comment #49 - Posted by: neil at September 28, 2009 9:24 PM

First time maxing on the snatch...gonna have to take some getting used to. I watch coach's video to try and mentally sort out my form before going in. Managed 145. 155 was too much of a jump, but it didn't really feel heavy, just awkward.

Now a have a goal for next time.

OUT

Comment #50 - Posted by: USA Allen in UK (M/30/5'11"/199) at September 28, 2009 9:38 PM

Hey everyone there was an interesting article posted by a doctor on the Runner'sWorld web site about ice vs. heat after an injury. Thought I would share.

http://runningdoctor.runnersworld.com/2009/09/acute-injury-heat-or-ice.html?cm_mmc=training-_-2009_09_29-_-training-_-BLOG%3a%20Ask%20the%20Running%20Doc

Don't get bent out of shape and fly off at the fingers if you don't agree. We are all hear to learn. So feel free to take the time to do a little research and share.

Comment #51 - Posted by: Michelle at September 28, 2009 10:03 PM

after you do your 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps of snatches, do you keep repeating the workout or is it up to the person to decide when to quit, first time doing crossfit......

Comment #52 - Posted by: Anthony at September 28, 2009 10:21 PM

Cool set up mas. Any chance for the schematics...I've been thinking of a way to construct a GHD/Back extension-type tool. Yours ROCKS!

"after you do your 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps of snatches, do you keep repeating the workout or is it up to the person to decide when to quit, first time doing crossfit......"

:D

#1: Make sure you know how to snatch properly.
#2: Make sure you warm up properly
#3: Make sure you are snatching near your 1 rep max
#4: Make sure you increase the weight until you cant any more.
#5: After seven reps, you should not be able to lift any more.

Comment #55 - Posted by: ian (m, 1.85m, 32y, 82k) at September 29, 2009 12:33 AM

Due to lax shoulders, overhead is still my weakness - shoulder stability is getting much better though!

Almost managed to snatch my 1rm OHS!! Almost...

(Kg's)37.5, 40, 42.5, 45F, 45, 47.5, 50F, 50F.
(Lb's)82.5, 88, 95, 100F, 100, 105, 110F, 110F

Finished with some push jerking.

Hi, could someone please suggest a suitable warmup for this WOD. Whats the best way to warm up for an oly lift?

Thanks!

I have a pretty good one handed snatch, but my conventional one handed snatch is terrible, and I workout alone at a globo gym. Work on one handed dumbell snatches or try to teach myself snatch on my own?

Comment #62 - Posted by: Daniel NYC at September 29, 2009 3:28 AM

#20 chris...Viabrams baby i used them to train for my first 50 miler and i was more than ready. the main concept of the 5fin is to get feed back to ur feet to run gentler b/c that hurts so in the end u reteach ur body to run right and more effiecently...if the military and my wife would let me i would where them 24/7... lol yeah the Air Force had fun with can or cant i where them in pt uniform , i won i can where them as long as i where the injinj WHITE socks with them ...all i wanted to say was i got a 100 on my test , what did you get !!! Well, bottom line they are worth trying everyone whom have i know love them , just at least give them a month , it took me two weeks to get used to them , run times sucked , distance sucked , everything sucked then like a light switch it was on like donkey kong.

I've been having a lot of pain in my right elbow on the outside small bone. Mostly when I move it, not so bad when sitting still. Any suggestions on what it might be, or if I should do the snatches today? I did the SDHPs yesterday, it was sore before that, and worse after.
Thanks,
Craig

First time really doing full snatches, only done power snatch until now.

warmed up with OHS, pushdowns and hang snatch

89, 89, 89, 111(F), 111(F), 89, 89, 111(F)

paused at the bottom for about 3 seconds on each one to work on balance.

I love how a missed snatch knocks you on your a**! So humbling and funny, and somehow right....if you miss a lift you should know it right away!
first time maxing on these - I am week 4 into Burgeners 8 week supplemental program btw.
55-65-75(power snatch)-65-75-75-80(power)-80.
I am strong enough to go heavier, just not ballsy enough! snatching alone is just no fun either. wish I had THE FRAT here to help...

This may be tennis elbow. Do you use a computer mouse often- or work with shovels, rakes, hammers for a living?

Comment #89 - Posted by: Mikes at September 29, 2009 7:36 AM

going to the gym right now-first time attempting a snatch.
-gonna start w/ a nice warm up of some lunges, dips and pullups,then going for it.
wish me luck

Comment #90 - Posted by: aaronfit at September 29, 2009 7:38 AM

*83-> i get the same pain in my right arm after playing baseball without warming up properly. Only way it went away for me was alot of icing/hot tub action and extensive rest unfortunately.

Mark, congratulations on the main page picture! Well done. You're a Crossfit star now! I've long admired your 2x4 gym. Soon as I get my boat outta the garage I gotta get to work on a back extension machine like yours.

Hey MAS, Maybe it's time for an article in the Journal on your home made equipment! Love it, so according to Bingo that translates to love you. So be it.

Had the last two locked out on the bottom, lost both forward on the squat out??? Any suggestions, I'm thinking lack of shoulder flexibility, maybe soft core coming out?

first time on the snatch so I took coaches advice, did my warm up, burgener's warm up and then practiced the snatch with only a 45# bar for 30 min. The overhead lockout, is very painful, even with a broom stick. Hmmm...

Bergener WU

WOD:
Snatch 7x1 - 65,85,95,105F,105,110F,110F,110,115F,115

This might be a PR, I will have to check. Focused on form, all were very pretty - the Bergener WU has really helped, it almost felt like 2nd nature. No thinking just stance-grip-jump. There were also distractions: crowded, no bumper plates, fitness center personnel staring, whatever. I am super pleased with my progression in this lift, I now have a solid base w/form/technique to start moving up in weight. Also, all the ailments that used to plague me during this lift (back, shoulder, flexibility) are all magically gone after 6 months of CF!

Comment #112 - Posted by: Mike Wright at September 29, 2009 9:24 AM

86 and 88,
Thanks for the advice. 86, yes I work with a mouse pretty much all day. Tennis elbow is kind of what I was thinking. Is rest the main thing? I'd hate to take a break as I'm about 2 months into crossfit. Should I not do the snatches today? Like I said I know I hurt more today than yesterday after doing the SDHPs. Thanks for the suggestions.

Comment #113 - Posted by: craig at September 29, 2009 9:24 AM

First time attempting a snatch so warmed up with some overhead squats, hang power snatch and snatch balance with a 7kg bar. Can't quite get the technique right but had a surprisingly good workout anyway. This is really good for my shoulder flexibility.

Another hot one in the hot Kandahar tent (gym). Man I have not done a snatch since high school, so I started off light. I wanted to get the form down proper before move up in weight. I did 6 sets of 5 with 135 LBS and 1 set of 5 for 155.

my snatch form is absolutely atrocious...

10x 55#
10x 95#

115-115-135-135-135(f)-115-115

kept doing 10x air snatches and 5x 95#ers in between the ME lifts to try and get form straight. I realized that my biggest problem stems from being unbalanced at the bottom of the catch, which leads me to try and arm pull the weight to gain height (another bad habit)... time to hit the affiliate for some coaching!

Finished up with 50x 95# OHS's cause I really need to work on that balance at the bottom (and the shoulderblade squeeze/arm lockout)

Got a question for you 5 Finger wearers out there:

I don't think I can wear them because my second and third toes don't split all the way (just to the knuckle, about half what yours do), but I'm dying to give barefoot a try.

Anyone know of anything out there that's built closer to a regular shoe shape, but provides (nearly) the same benefits?

Thanks all.

135 (iffy - not sure I was quite low enough in the squat)
145 (fail x2)
140 (fail x2, then got it clean on 3rd attempt!)

Fun stuff. First time with 1RM squat snatches, so I started light. My fails on 115 were losing control of the bar (forwards) in the squat position. 145 seemed mental - my body did not want to get under the bar. Same with 140, but I think my form was cleaner, plus I took it nice and slow and didn't rush through the first pull.

I was stoked after, so did some overhead squats, 135x5, felt great! It got me thinking - obviously OHS are useful in developing the squat snatch, but I also think the converse applies. I felt very solid doing these OHS after snatching today.

@ #122-holy heavy weights overhead, how long you been snatching? how long it take you to get up to that????

first time with movement today, just worked form, trying to learn movement and do it properly from the start, broom several sets, bar severl sets, 95#'s 8 sets, very tough movement, lack speed, hip and shoulder flexibility and that "pop" on the second pull, have to work on this one!

Comment #148 - Posted by: in8girl at September 29, 2009 11:51 AM

mas: Really cool equipment. Did you have any problems getting those to be stable? Especially the squat rack? I might copy you to make my home gymn, if you don't mind. I already have the home-made wallball, sand bags, a "box jump" made of cinder blocks and a plank, and cinder blocks lashed to metal bars for lunges. Hoisting tree trunks has been great exercise, but I've always figured there had to be a better way for a cheapscate like me and I think you've done it.

Thanks,
Steve Cole

I agree, my OHS seem to get better after doing some snatches. I am guessing it is a mix of confidence and finding that balancing sweet spot.

Comment #150 - Posted by: Dan m at September 29, 2009 11:58 AM

7 singles all at 115. Iron plates, no platform, weak floor = no room for error. Still, I am comfortable at 115 where I used to be shaky, so that is progress.

I am so pumped to spread the word, instruct others in the CrossFit methodology, and change lives. Anyone thinking about attending a cert should think no more - it will be one of the best investments you will ever make. Thanks to Andy, Joe, Stephanie Rocket, EC, Miranda, and Joe - You all ROCK!

in8girl- hooray for sleep. I got 9.5 last night :) Ah, perhaps for October, instead of my scaled back WOD times, I will post nightly sleep duration. I will surely blow everyone out of the water there. I am a champion sleeper, I just don't let myself do it long enough, it feels somehow lazy. I will get over that :)

Amusing: doctors told me to stop with the weights, take up running.

Walked an easy mile today, still chugging lots of water. Thinking Thursday I'll dip my toes back into the water.... sigh, I'm the kinda girl who like to test the waters with both feet! This is hard. Thanks for all the emails/posts. You are all SO great.

Not sufficient flexibility and balance/control at the bottom to do snatches with any weight yet. Did lots of snatch related drills with 45# bar and a bunch of snatches with the empty bar. I have some work to do to get comfortable and proper position at the bottom.

This, double unders, muscle ups, hand stand presses, squat cleans are all things to work on.

With anchored abmat situps; knocked off 4 minutes. Avg HR 169, peak 178.

Thanks for all the kind comments! Thanks, Paul, Jon h. and Dave, and as always, to Coach and Lauren! Most of all, thanks to Thomas Crubaugh for introducing me to Crossfit, easily one of the most profound blessings of my life.

Unfortunately, I don't have specifications for my equipment, but I'll gladly send photos from alternate views to anyone who asks. Even though I live in Santa Cruz, the heart of the Crossfit Universe, with some of the best affiliates and trainers on the planet, I remain a dedicated mainpage guy, so apparently I'm self-motivated, but more importantly, I'm cheap!

Did some DROMS, rowed a slow 500m with emphasis on form, did 5 75# thrusters with emphasis on form, did some toes to bar and some pull-ups, finally the Burgener warm-up with my 12# sand/rebar filled PVC bar.

Then: Snatch - 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 - 65,75,85,95F,95F,95F,95F

All those 95Fs were actually successful power snatches, I just marked them as F’s because most weren’t even close to parallel. I just kept trying it over and over thinking I could get myself down faster, but for whatever reason I couldn’t. This WOD came at a good time because I’ll be working on the snatch with Justin again on Saturday. Took some video today, gonna see if any of it is useful and will post if it came out.

Rejoiceinsuffering (post #122)... At your bodyweight 150lb, that snatch would place you in the top five, nationally, in the 69kg class. What is your best clean and jerk?

Comment #169 - Posted by: splicer at September 29, 2009 1:07 PM

What do you do if you workout in a gym that does not have the rubber weights?

You can't bail with the steel ones and it's a serious injury risk to try and slowly download the weight from a overhead squat!

The last one was bad. I am still scared of the bottom of my overhead squat position and as a result don't drop under the bar at heavier loads. Overhead squat needs work.

could not use the olympic bar cause all the big lifters were all over them in the back room. I used the kettle bells and did 10 reps with 25# in each hand. did about 8 sets. I know that's not close to what i should have done today but could not get to the bars. Did i do any good? only my second crossfit workout. Also did the entire warmup and then jumped rope afterward. don't know if i will ever get the double unders?

Warmed up with some selective stretching, double unders and the Burgener warm up. Then I worked on my snatches:

Snatch, 1 rep, 45/65/85/105/125/130/135(PR)

Was able to squat snatch up through 115 lbs. Thereafter, I was getting power snatches. Need to continue working on my depth and stability in the bottom position.

Then I did the following metabolic conditioning routine:

AMRAP in 15 mins:
Squat Snatch, 95 lbs, 3 reps
Burpees, 6 reps
Pull Ups, 9 reps
Round Totals: 1:21/1:52/2:32/3:16/3:19/3:15

Need to work on the technique, the strength is there to do way more weight, getting under the bar and having it in the right position as it gets heavier - not so much.

I think I got impatient at the end. I should have taken more of a rest before trying 185. Still, I haven't done heavy snatches in almost a year, when my pr was 180. So this doesn't seem too bad.

Did about 30 sets ranging from 45# to 95#. From 65# moved up in 5# increments until I hit three solid snatches in a row. Made it up to 95# before I started to fatigue. Goal was to reach 115#. 95# was solid and could have went higher but was starting to lose my pop.

That was a lot of fun. Hope to see more snatch x 1 in near future.

Hey all. I haven't posted for a long time as I've been dealing with tendonitis in the elbows which affects all the fun stuff like pullups, and olympic lifts. I think it's gradually getting better in that I don't feel it every time I open a door. I've had to scale back but am continuting to do what I can. I just started teaching again and the school I'm at has a football team and therefore has a squat rack. NICE! Now I can do squats and presses without having to clean the weight first which is hard on the elbows.

While injured, I've had a chance to look at my training and realize that now that I'm 40, I don't have to be so darn competitive. I have to stop connecting my worth as a person with the amount of weight I can lift. I mean, I don't do that with my running because I'm a very average runner.... but once I find something I'm good at, I suddenly make it much more important to me than it has to be.

I did this before as I used to row on the Canadian National Team back in the 90's. I made the '92 and '96 Olympic teams... both times as an alternate which was OK in'92 but a hearbreaker in '96. It was especially tough when my team won a gold and silver medals those years. It took a while to get away from having self worth tied so closely to my erg score, or the number of international medals I had. Now I'm 40 (and have been for close to two weeks), those teammates I was so jealous of (thought about kneecapping a la Tonya Harding) are simply people like me.... middle aged moms, working on balancing career, family and a healthy lifestyle.

So... one day I'll be able to get back into my cleans, deadlifts and snatches... until then I try to master a handstand pushup, do front squats on squat clean day, and realize that crossfit is all about being healthy and happy and challenging myself today... not about challenging myself as I remember myself 15 years ago when my 2k erg score was 6:50. (something I HAVE to remind myself when I get on the erg these days.... or I won't get very far)

Thanks for listening and thanks to Crossfit.

Comment #223 - Posted by: JuliePlatt at September 29, 2009 4:34 PM

Never done snatches before and I'm using metal plates - didn't want to break anything (including me!) so I subbed on this.

I did 4-3-2-1 of:
Clean
Overhead Squat
Deadlift

I figure the clean and overhead squat make up about the same movement as the snatch.

PR'd on the Deadlift - 345 - up 10! Also got in my first 305 without using an alternating grip - only 1 rep out of two though - had to switch grips on the second rep.

Also PR'd on the clean at 175 - but this is the first time I tried over 135 and I think I could have done more, but worked up from 115 and didn't work up fast enough to know what the 1MR would have really been.

First few Snatches felt kinda sloppy, but felt good as soon as I got to 125....

Played around with form. Rough going with 35 lb dumbbells doing two arms at once. Switched to single arms and after several reps and watching how-to videos, my form became a bit better and then was having no problem tossing up 55lb dumbbells, my heaviest.

Howdy all! Scrat here! Holy cow - I have never done this wod before - talk about suck. :) I was only able to do 75 - failed at 80 but hey, ya gotta have a goal, right?
Strong Lil Pony - you take care of yourself and heal so you can be back out there killing it. Glad to see you posting again - missed you tons.
Trying the Paleo challenge. I think I have messed up already as far as the wods go, but I want to try to see if this can help my strength and times. I am excited to have the support of the CF world to get thru this.
mas coment #158 - I would love some photos of your equipment. We have a stash of weights and equipment at my house - comes in handy when trying to workout and raise kids all at the same time - and I would love to see the roman chair ghr set up. I have an er rack so squats and bench are never problematic but trying to do ghd sit ups are impossible at the house. If you could email them to me when you have the chance, that would be great! My email addy is sdwood37@gmail.com. Thanks!
Well, that's it for now. I'm off to cook eggs for dinner. Bring on the Paleo diet!!

First time trying Snatch (workout)
Decided to try and figure out the form with just the bar for about 6 reps. The decided to go for

#95 of 3-3-3-3-3

to learn the lift. Felt pretty good although form was usually not great on the third rep. I hope to try some more weight next time.

First time doing snatch for max load. Shoulders are a bit weak, I think they are what held me back b/c I wasn't fatigued immediately after the WOD.

CFWU and some practice snatches @ 45lbs
65 got it easy
95 Failed
75
85
95 Powered through it, but form was ok
95 Done properly
100 Power through it again & poor form

There is a PR somewhere in there, not sure if I should count the 100 or the 95 though.

Okay, so Jackson's still really new to Crossfit, so we worked on form some for a warmup. Did a partial Burgener warmup...the parts I remember. I know, I know, I'm downloading the video now. I just renewed my subscription to the Journal. Anyway, weight felt light, but form felt bad.

Okay so I am not feeling so bad now after reading through the weights and difficulties that everyone else is doing. This is my first time ever doing the Snatch movement.

Warmup - jump rope 50 whips
random stretching while waiting for squat rack

Workout -
I did try 115 first (way to heavy)
moved down to 95 and even though I could do the clean movement, I wasn't getting in the squat and stand so I decided to go as light as possible to get the movement, then go up.

1st time with snatch so just practiced with PVC.

Then did October Paleo Challenge first benchmark workout, max 5 successful deadlifts in 15 min, and post total weight and strategy.

235
245
250 (PR)
255 (miss)
245
245

Total of max 5 = 1220. Strategy was to start near PR and move up, trying to do not much more than 5 reps and get the most rest possible between reps.

Looking forward to 1 month of Paleo. So far 3 months of CrossFit and 25lbs added to deadlift. How much can one month of Paleo add?

technique, form needs lots of work, can't quite get the squating part down, shoulders aren't flexible enough or something. Weight didn't seem too hard to get overhead but didn't want to go up in weight until form gets better.

@ d-boy #130:

Try Nike Free. It is a normal shoe but not a lot of padding and the bottom is broken up so it is a lot more flexible. Probably the next best thing to the 5fingers if your feet won't allow for wearing them and you aren't ready to go barefoot.

No excuses on this one. I need way more practice than I have been giving. Warmed up with KB Swings 35 & 50 Lb's double and single arm, a few one arm presses and also went through Coach B's w/u.

115 Lbs with what felt like OK form. Not good but OK. My OHS is better and thought about going up towards that weight then thought better of it. “Mechanics, Consistency, Intensity”. I opted for mechanics, lowered the weight and worked on it for a while.

Practiced snatch with 45 a number of times. Really need to learn to sink into the catch - as it stands, when I do "real" weight, I end up throwing the bar halfway overhead, legs straight, and then doing a 1/2 Shoulder Press. But, it got better as I got more comfortable with the movement.

Worked on Snatch form today. Smacked myself in the forehead while warming up. I guess I was too for over the bar (self critiquing).

Did multiple sets at 115 and 95 from the ground and from the hang. Really trying to explode out of the pockets. Not happy with my form at all.

Comment #334 - Posted by: Jim D. 49yom 165# 5'11" at September 30, 2009 1:03 PM

did my best, but I know I have poor technique. so worked with broom stick between sets trying to learn this.

Did just the 45 pound bar and did 7 sets of 5 reps with just the bar and on the last one did 5 OHS.

Snatch:
135-145-155-165-175-190(F)

I had no issue getting the bar overhead, it was just a matter of technique and receiving the bar in the correct position. 190 is definitely very possible.

I have a rough time with the balancing act at the bottom and serious flexibility issues with my shoulders. I need to work on that before trying to really get any weight up with the snatch.

Experimenting with some GVT

Bench Press @ 50% 1RM (125) 10 x 10
Dumbell Row @ 20 RM (40) 10 x 10 each arm
Reverse crunches 10 x 10

Do each exercise each set, each set starts every 3 minutes.

I got all reps on all sets, so from what I've read, I should increase the weight next time.

Comment #415 - Posted by: AlexR 28 / m / 94kg / 6'2" at October 6, 2009 2:58 AM

Warm up:
Row 500 x 2
100 push ups - aprox 5:40

WOD:
Hang Snatch - 45x10, 45x10, 65x10, 85x5, 105x5, 85x5, 85x5

First time ever doing the Snatch. I went with the hang Snatch so that I could work in the power rack and focus on the 2nd and 3rd pull. I felt pretty good about the hip movement but I was kind of week moving into the overhead posistion. I felt like my body was trying to do Clean and Jerk. I need to keep working with the light weights and focus on the transition to the overhead. I also need to make sure that I am getting low enough under the bar, almost an overhead squat.

Never snatched before so just worked on technique (worked on first pull and high hang snatch etc) using an empty bar and then a #66 bar.

Comment #422 - Posted by: Josh R at October 8, 2009 11:46 AM

I'm always going to be doing WODs a week behind so I can better schedule myself and see what other exercises I can supplement without fatiguing myself for the next WOD.

I blew on these snatches. I was too embarassed to go below 95, but I also failed on all 7 attempts. Next time I'll have to go lower.

Failed miserably on the first 130 - stayed clutching the bar, which landed on my thighs (while in squat position). Hurt like hell and was thrown off after that.
