squat cleans?

Comment #4 - Posted by: Phil at February 17, 2010 5:04 PM

Yeah!!

3-2-1-GO!!

Comment #5 - Posted by: Orca 39/6.1/207 at February 17, 2010 5:10 PM

#4, no just clean, address the bar, squat down, jump to outward stance, as bar is in the air, you are addressing your arms and chest underneath it, you should be in a semi-squat position, then raise up, thats a clean.

I'm on my way to the gym right now to do this. I did the Tabata this morning, came here to look at some of the ladies to see who i wanted to do, see tomorrows workout posted, perfect.

Comment #6 - Posted by: BTE at February 17, 2010 5:10 PM

clean = squat clean

Comment #7 - Posted by: Richard at February 17, 2010 5:13 PM

ditto...clean=squat clean

Comment #8 - Posted by: Tubbs at February 17, 2010 5:16 PM

#4, yes squat cleans. Clean and squat clean are synonymous. PR'd this on monday at 37:12 with 290lb DL 145 clean and 195 bench press

Comment #9 - Posted by: Sean at February 17, 2010 5:16 PM

so...whats the form...squat or not?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Hitch at February 17, 2010 5:19 PM

Squat clean aka Full Clean aka Clean = start from the floor, catch in a full squat.
Hang clean = start from the hang position (above or below the knees), catch in the full squat position.
Power clean = start from the floor, catch in a quarter or half squat position aka the power position.
Hang power clean = start from the hang position above or below the knees, catch in the quarter or half squat.
"Hang" describes where you start.
"Power" describes where you catch.

took that right from the FAQ. squat cleans it is.

Comment #15 - Posted by: 11381/29/m/5'7/155 at February 17, 2010 5:48 PM

Trying to take off the "holiday 15". This should be fun with a 405 dead lift, 270 bench, and 205 clean.
3, 2, 1... GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment #16 - Posted by: ALX M/31/5'7/255 at February 17, 2010 5:57 PM

How fast through the reps? Any rest in between? I got that you just plow to the next exercise but not sure about reps.

Just got back...

bench - 195

(add 10 pounds to my clean, 75 to my dead, and it would've been RX'd, but this is my 2nd WOD of the day and deadlift was hurting alot)


time - 39:08

Comment #24 - Posted by: BTE at February 17, 2010 7:10 PM

#10 I've done power and squat versions many times, obviously squat (usually do squat cleans) is more difficult and power is much faster, I track my times with both versions

#15 get it done fast, fewer burpees the better :)

3 bars of death... ugh.

Last time this almost made me cry.

I am a cycle behind, been working oly lifting into my training, along with strength.
Tonight BS 175 3 x 3/ DL 242.5 x 4 - just could NOT get last rep!

I will meet Linda this weekend and pulverize her. Yeah right. She's gonna house me and I know it.

Hello, a friend of mine suggested me to compete in the cross fit games after he made me do some work out named gran in 1:43, permitting it fitting in with my decathlon season I'd like to give it a try. Can anyone forward a place to go to find this registration information? Thank you great videos.

just happened to have done linda on sunday. 24:45 (pr is 22:32). not too happy with this.

deadlift: 275
bench press: 185

#4 - linda rx'd is always with squat cleans. this was established years ago.

did tabata something else today. 456 pr.

squats: 160

Comment #32 - Posted by: ken c at February 17, 2010 8:11 PM

I think the wod "gran" is 21-15-9 of broomstick presses and steps

Comment #33 - Posted by: Brosephiroth at February 17, 2010 8:26 PM

Just a few words to the unsuspecting and unfamiliar: The first time I tried Linda she chewed me up and spat me out. I tried it as Rx'd with 300lb deads, 200lb bench and 155lb cleans. It took me 15 mins just to get through the first three rounds and by then my lower back was toast.

I was coming back after injury at the time so I was less conditioned to heavy lifting than I normally would be, however, I think if I had done power cleans rather than full squat cleans I might have made it all the way to the end.

So, although Linda is supposed to be done with squat cleans, if you have any doubts about getting through it, just do power cleans this time around and see how you get on. It'll still be brutal if you try to get through it quickly.

Grangrats to the Crossfitters who just competed in the Crash-B's. Pretty impressive, Tommy rowed a 6:30 beating 90+ of the worlds best indoor rowers, Tanya took 43'd beating over 130 rowers, and EC from Boston took 21st only 9 seconds away from top ten. Not to shabby competing against people who strictly train to row.

This WOD is sweet.

Comment #40 - Posted by: 12th Psyop at February 17, 2010 9:43 PM

Ya know, It's funny that when I first started using the hook grip about three years ago, it hurt and I had to tape my thumbs. Know it does not hurt at all and I don't need to use tape. Thanks again coach, Rip, and Coach B.

Have Fun, Train Hard,

Knucklehead alert for Lynne:

sr, comment 40, go away, you are an idiot. You should not care that much about what song is in the background of a video posted here.

AW, comment 29, your email address does not work. I am assuming that you are talking about "Fran" not "Gran" which is not a named WOD. In any case, please rest a day and then video your next Fran effort. If its under two minutes, even if its under three minutes, please post the video on YouTube and send me an email, my address will work if you click on it.

Posers, what can you do.

Have Fun, Train Hard,

Billy

Comment #43 - Posted by: Billy Olympic Crossfit at February 17, 2010 10:27 PM

Great workout guys, I love this one, just got one problem:

I'm a small guy, and (quote Burger King), I've got these tiny hands. lol, their not that small, but do you guys know of any ways to do a hook grip if the lifter has small hands?

Thanks in advance.

Comment #44 - Posted by: Ben at February 17, 2010 10:49 PM

I only own 1 bar. Opinions on switching out the weights to accommodate 3 lifts...or...leave weight alone and complete each exercise, one at a time, all the ways through. I lean towards changing out weight and sacrificing the time. Let me know....thx.

Comment #45 - Posted by: red5503/m/45/205/69" at February 17, 2010 11:14 PM

Linda is like my favorite. it hasn't been on the main page since I started but I did it in a couple times because its so boss. I always feel so beastly after finishing it. Hopefully this will be my first time with all full squat cleans.

Comment #49 - Posted by: Scott at February 18, 2010 1:19 AM

Okay looking for some pro advice here. On related pro advice from Russ and Jacob I've been working the things I suck at daily to a small degree. I believe the idea is to do them, but not to the point of failure or extreme exertion.
I started the idea doing 3x3 L pull ups, which over time got up to 3X7. After a big pull up day I was no longer able to do my 3x7s, (though I nailed the pull ups section!!).
So my question is, how should I vary the things that I suck at? Should I just start small and always build up until a big work out and then drop down as needed or what?? More detail is always better
feel free to email

Rookie, Playoff Beard, s'more, Cookie, J9, Olive Oyl- what up FRAT? I'm here, just been lurking. I'm busy running an empire :) See you all in July at the Games.

Comment #54 - Posted by: Strong Lil Pony! at February 18, 2010 3:34 AM

I picked up CrossFit during training for my first ultra. In reading through the websites, posts, and CFJ articles I could use some clarification.

Am I losing some benefit of the WOD because I couple it with my standard run workout (read: extended conditioning 1 hour or more, far beyond cardio conditioning but used to get the body used to long periods of raised activity)? Unfortunately, I do not have the opportunity during the day to split the workouts like they suggest on crossfitendurance. Any thoughts?

Comment #55 - Posted by: fte M/30/6'/200 at February 18, 2010 3:55 AM

More caloric intake and likely over training.

Comment #56 - Posted by: Brian at February 18, 2010 3:59 AM

Had to scale a bit.

5-5-4-4-3-3 reps of the triplet:

Deadlift: 305 x 4 sets then 205 x 2 sets
Bench press: 220 x 6 sets
Squat cleans, going light for form: 45 x 2 sets then 95 x 4 sets

M/21/200

Dropped bench press to 185 from 205; haven't benched in a long time since I've been doing CF. I think I did more power clean than squat clean; have trouble getting down low into a squat.

Deadlift: 295
Bench Press: 205 (10) / 185 (rest of sets)
Clean (power): 145

Time: 42:07

This was a hard WOD. First time I've really done Linda. Blew through the power cleans, although I should work on the SC. Deadlift was ok; usually broke it down into 1-2 reps, rest a few seconds, then at it again.

Comment #67 - Posted by: Dan at February 18, 2010 5:55 AM

m/32/5'9"/175

due to lack of resources because my partner and I are at a globo gym, I did 225 DL (40 lbs under), 135 Bench (40 lbs under), and 135 Squat Clean (4 lbs over)

31:53 (PR of 5:14)

Comment #68 - Posted by: elliott at February 18, 2010 5:58 AM

Decided to scale back on CFit for a little, since there's been so many brutal WODs that have left me lethargic (overtraining?). I'm going to hold off on Linda until tomorrow, went into the gym and was still sore from doing Cindy yesterday.

ok so this totally kicked my arse. i thought last night was hard, yeah no comparison.

had to scale weights down to manageable levels

ended up using 225 DL, 200 Bench, 125 cleans.

overall 32 mins. I lost some time setting up stuff and scaling down weight, etc. Also had to do first sets of deadlifts in sets of three.

Comment #80 - Posted by: GWW5/45/m/208 at February 18, 2010 7:01 AM

I wished i could do this one. Week 6 of slipped disk back injury, not impressed, hating not being able to do anything.

Comment #81 - Posted by: Rob L at February 18, 2010 7:08 AM

First time doing "Linda". Was feeling confident so attempted as rx'd: DNF (Completed 4 Rounds in 30:39 and had to stop secondary to get ready for work)

4 (10,9,8,7) rounds at: 30:39

245lb DL
165lb Bench
125lb Squat Clean

I was feeling good and probably would have picked up the pace on 6,5,4,3,2,1 finishing, I am guessing in the 45 min range.

Even though I DNF I worked on "squat clean" form (butt to the floor literally). That felt great and a huge accomplishmentconsidering when I started in 12/09 I struggled just to do air

squats to the floor. Next time I see "Linda" I know I will own her. (She probably will still own me, LOL!)

34M/165lb/5'9"

Comment #82 - Posted by: Jeff Wood at February 18, 2010 7:11 AM

Can I do this with one lift at a time? I.e. first do deadlifts 10-9-8-..., then bench presses and finally cleans. Does it make a difference?

Comment #83 - Posted by: johannes at February 18, 2010 7:13 AM

34:21 Scaled
DL @ Bodyweight (190#)
Bench at 1/2 (95#)

Question on the hook grip: Is there any benefit to using it if grip strength is not your weakest link? I DL almost 2x BW with a normal overhand grip and am not yet close to having a problem with the lower weights involved with snatch and clean. Prior to starting o-lifting I've had problems with thumb and wrist arthritis which the hook grip seems to aggravate. I'm painfully aware of the cons but have yet to experience (or apparently need) the most obvious pros. What am I missing?

Oh, it's on!!! I am going to attempt this as rx'd for the first time. It's going to be close - bench press is the weak point. It isn't going to be pretty or metcon-y, but it's going to get done.

F/25/5'8"/170

Had to scale weights down- used 225 for DL (~130% BW), 150 for BP (~90% BW), and 95 for SC (~60% BW).

Still hurt way too much but at least I was able to keep moving through the bars with a slightly lower weight.

27:55 or something like that. When I finished I collpased for who knows how long before I remembered the clock was running, so I crawled across the room to get it.

Comment #97 - Posted by: Maria at February 18, 2010 8:34 AM

My BW is 215.

My DL : 322

it's been awhile for me doing CF or heavy

by?

BW: 130

Deads: 195#
Squat Cleans: 100#
**Bench: No bench for me with this shoulder. Physically hurts to be in bench press just the bar. Orthopedic told me bench is one of THE WORST skills to do for anyone that has shoulder problems.

BENCH SUB: 10-1 pull ups/chest to deck push ups

Linda-3 bars of death

Last time I tackled this WOD I completed as rx'd in 40 minutes.
Then had to take the following week off because of poor form trying to go too fast w/ the heavy weights.
Lesson learned, scale the weights, its OK.
So today scaled as follows:

Deadlift 155#
Bench Press 115#
shoulder cooperated
Cleans 75#
19:50

All weights felt light but I pushed through with good form and no "bad pain".
I'll increase the weights next time, just a little. This was a good WOD for me.

Alright ... I’m a new to CrossFit (about 2 - 3 weeks) and I love the work outs. They are fun and challenging, but I’m a little concerned that I'm going to turn from She-Ra into the Incredible Hulk with all this weight.

I’m fairly fit from running, but I have never done and serious weight training before. Do I need to reduce the weight... :) More than I already have to, increase reps, or leave it alone? I want to be a strong, fit, good looking momma... Not manly. Any suggestions / advice or am I being paranoid?

I dont understand how you guys think that you LOSE time switching the weight plates. You get extra rest and considering your times, you did stop a couple of times during this WOD. Jus saying that blaming only having 2 bars for not getting a good time is somewhat irrelevant. Just my opinion.....

Comment #128 - Posted by: jake at February 18, 2010 11:03 AM

"Linda"

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet:

Deadlift: 1 1/2 body weight
Bench press: body weight
Clean: 3/4 body weight

Set up three bars and storm through for time.

I did SQUAT cleans.
weight is
Deadlift 250lbs
bench 165lbs
squat cleans 125lbs

TIME 38:34
last time 41:00 even with 5 lbs lighter on cleans


I had to pull off 125lbs off the bar to get the clean weight, and after the cleans rerack the weight for deads. It got real frustrating changing weights arround. When you are spending more time changing weight then doing the exercize it gets to you.
I went back and timed how long it took me to pull the weight off and put it back on and it took 1:08 min so I spent over 10 min changing weights.

Now I was real happy with the workout. Deads unbroken, bench unbroken(no spot keeps you moving) Cleans only first 3 rounds broke.

Set the weight too conservatively, definitely could have done more. We know for next time: Also, only 2 bars, with two CF'ers, so every single exercise had a few seconds rest as we traded off on each one. Definitely made it a bit easier to catch/keep my breath!
DL = 185
BP = 125
Clean = 85
@35m for each of us.

Our main concern was the bench press, as we don't actually have a bench for it. We have flat and adjustable benches, but nothing to hold the bar, so every set included a clean, plus a weighted sit-down onto the bench, plus a weighted sit-up to get up! However, since the weights were light enough, we added in a few push-presses to the end of the cleans, just to spice things up. ;)

Comment #140 - Posted by: dk m/33/6'0"/220 at February 18, 2010 11:48 AM

So technically a clean is just getting the bar from ground to catching in one movement (ie; clean). Doing a full squat usually is the result of getting under heavy wieght. But when doing lower wieght it is usually more efficient to not go into a full squat to catch it. It's like kipping pullups, you can get more reps in less time and so more power. I found that with the more weight is do, i naturally begin to catch in full squat.

Comment #146 - Posted by: Crossfitninja at February 18, 2010 12:09 PM

reply to comment 137:

Of course it is more efficient to catch a clean in a "power" stance, especially with a light weight.

A "clean", however, is NOT a "power clean". the clean, especially at a lighter weight improves athleticism (and hip flexion) in a different way than a power clean.

Most team sport athletes can power clean more than they can "clean" because they do not often need to have eccentric control through the ROM at the bottom of a clean.

This is worth noting, and is worth working even at weights not approximating your 1RM

-5 kipping pullups round 1, 1 round 2

-5 unasst dips round 1

-76/34 asst on the rest of the pullups dips

My plan was to scale down as such:

DL body weight (185)

Bench 3/4 body weight (135)

Clean 1/2 body weight (95)

Two problems arose, though. First, I'm still a bit worried about my shoulder, so I decided to do the cleans with a 27# body bar just for form. Second, I made it through 9 reps of the 135# bench, but I was worried about failing without a spotter, so I cut it down to 115, which ended up being a little too light for the later rounds.

Ugh, I went down to ignominious defeat today. Made it as rx'd through the round of 7 (300 lb DL, 150 lb cleans), then just could not handle the bench press at body weight anymore, I had already been forced to do singles in the round of 9. The other exercises were fine and actually not all that challenging, did most rounds unbroken. Need work on bench to address a serious strength imbalance - probably dips, and shoulder press, etc. will help too. Finished up the workout dropping the bench press to 135, time 44:01.

Guess I'm still just Linda's biyatch.

Scaled heavily
285# DL
185# BP
155# cleans

tweaked back at the end of the 7 rep round so just did BP and cleans after that. Someone was doing lighter DLs so started up again on DLs at 199# for 4 rep round and down. I can normally storm through DLs but felt really weak today.

Yet again, I miss understood the assignment. I thought I killed it, until I re-read the WOD before this posting. Basically I did 10 rounds at 3 reps for all the exercise instead of the rep number matching the round I was on. Looks like I cheated myself out of 25 reps since I did 30 instead of 55. Nevertheless for those that fell into the same trap as I did. Here at the numbers. I guess I could double the numbers and add some to account for fatigue though.

Great to see such strong work coming from the ladies. In8girl, where y'at? Last time you did this, did you do full or power cleans? Curious.

Comment #169 - Posted by: MM at February 18, 2010 2:09 PM

#125 Jake

You're right, when you have to change plates between the first few sets you do get an extra rest. But, when you get inside of 5 and you have to strip plates off and move the bar and bench before you can move on, it does slow you down a little.

I post my WOD's so I have a bench mark to compare against the next time I do a WOD. I'm sorry my comments caused you so much angst.

"One bar linda"

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-3

215 lb deadlift
elevated foot ring pushups
105 lb cleans (strip weight from outside of bar on deadlift to leave 105 lbs on inside of bar)

Takes up a lot of time re-setting the weight, but it's the best I can do with one bar. Absolutely brutal on the deadlift, lower back is fried- the other exercises felt like cake compared to the deads. Will either add weight to pushups or add reps next time, they're too easy on their own.

Comment #175 - Posted by: Kamper M/45/200/74" at February 18, 2010 2:46 PM

159 lbs today

1:03:06, had 2 bars, so I was wasting some time switching weights.
Deadlift: 222 lbs (rd 10, & 9) 202 lbs to the end
Bench: 160 lbs (failed on 2 lifts)
Clean: 67 lbs (failed on 1 lift)

I'm new to deadlifts and newer to cleans. I think I finally have a better feeling for the form. When I get a chance to film myself doing a clean I was hoping I could post on youtube and you guys could help me with my form. Thanks.

Comment #176 - Posted by: FinnishCraig m/22/5'8"/160 at February 18, 2010 2:46 PM

So maybe Jake #125 can send me one of his bars since having to move more weight during the wod than recommended,seems like "break time" to him. I am more than happy to make this wod easier for you.

Comment #177 - Posted by: jnel at February 18, 2010 2:54 PM

212# weighed before workout (6'1", M, 25)

Close to Rx but not quite, all reps completed.

Weight:
DL: Rx'd 316# all sets (set of 5 and 4 reps used straps though)
Bench Press: 215 every set except 7,6, used 195 there
Cleans: Used 105# from set 7 on to practice/keep form

Total time: 57:00

I'm a little disappointed that I had to drop the weight so low to keep good form on all the cleans, but what can you do but keep working at it. Got some nice looks from people around me when the DL bar took a chunk of skin from my leg and I started bleeding down my leg but didn't notice. lol. Glad to be wearing my FEF shirt today!

Me: 43yo/M/5'10"/181lbs/11%BF

This is my 36th "Named Workout" in a row (3 on 1 off) since the beginning of the year. Linda.

Warm Up: Greg A's stretching and warm up + some bar mucles ups.

WOD: Linda 41:21 as prescribed.

Deadlift: 275lbs (1.53 x body weight) The deadlifts were the easiest. I broke these into set of 8-2, 8-1, and then did the rest of the sets in one shot.

Bench Press: 185lbs (1.02 x body weight) These were the next easiest. I broke these into 7-3, 7-2, 7-1, and then did the rest of the sets in one shot.

Full squat cleans: 140lbs (0.77 x body weight) These were the toughest. The rep scheme as follows: 4-4-2, 5-4, 5-3, 5-2, 5-1, and then the rest of the sets in one shot.

Cool down: one bar muscle up.

Have Fun, Train Hard,

Billy

HR ave 160 w/ max HR 172. Had to do broken sets of DL and Squat Cleans reps 9 thru 6? with the exception at Bench press which was easy for me. I'm suprised that that was a limiting factor for alot and that they dropped the bp weight? Maybe the next CF cycle will adress this with a focus on more pressing movements? I'm hoping HQ will give us a break and that tomorrow's workout only involves lifting protien shakes...

Didn't actually "storm" through it however, actually more like "plodding". Tried to keep a steady pace, but it is difficult with only one bar. Seemed to have spent an equal amount of time changing out weights to lifing....

Deadlift 265#
Bench press 70# Dumbbells (140# total)
Clean 135#

Time: 44:31

Only had 1 bar so I used dumbells for bench and swapped wts for the clean and deadlifts, I deff lost time doing that. Half way thru the WOD, this guy who works at my base gym told me I couldnt drop the wt.s. WHY? I hate that people think the bar is going to break, its an OLYMPIC bar bell. Do people not watch the olympics, those guys slam 100s of pounds down, 135#s is not going to do anything. whateva.

DO WORK!!!

32/m/5'11"/190#

Clock stopped for some reason, so no time....

Anyway, did some scaling:
I should have scaled even more on the squat cleans because they slowed me down a lot and were sloppy.
The Bench Press weight was close to perfect, but 10# extra would not have hurt any.
I could have gone as Rx'd on Deadlifts.

So;
Deadlift- 255 (285 Rx'd)
Bench Press- 145 (190 Rx'd)
Cleans- 135 (142.5 Rx'd)

I don't care for the strain of the RX 300 lb DL and it's so easy for the form to get real bad with fatigue, so I substituted the hack lift (HL) at 1.25xBW. Strong hack lift strength comes in handy if you're trying to lift a car off somebody...

Since it's my fourth try on crossfit (mountain marathoner for fun) I had to scale Linda down to, say, Lindette. Also, "my" gym is kinda low on bars, so had to sub some:
DL 72.5kg
BP 2x25 kg (20 on the last rounds) dumbbells
SqCl 35 kg (was too light, poor technique though)

As rx'd, 21:09. Weights today were: 255 / 170 / 135. Last time, I did full squat cleans for Linda (25:14), so this time I tried power cleans instead. Some thoughts:

-Round of 9 - I'm drenched in sweat. I forgot my hand towel. Globogym charges a fee to use their hand towels - f*** that. So I see some hand towels that are meant to be used to wipe down machines - I grab the driest one I can find. Good to go!

-Round of 6 - everyone is staring at me. All these globo muscleheads - one doing 135# flat bench, one doing heavy preacher curls - are looking at me like I'm crazy b/c I'm panting like a mofo and toweling off after every station. Some other dude is watching me do cleans, and I can tell he's wondering what the hell kind of move that is. I can also tell he's glad that he's not doing it.

-Round of 4 - the globogym bars are old, and the knurling is not very good anymore (worn down). Because of this, DLs are killing me, b/c the bar keeps sliding out of my hand. I look down and see that I have 3 huge tears in my hands. I figure it's okay, I've only got 6 DLs left - I'll just have to grit through the pain.

-Round of 4 - now on bench - one of the "hyper" trainer guys comes over and asks if I've been dropping the weights. I say no, not dropping them, but I'm doing touch-and-go DLs and they're heavy. He's like, "Well the owner keeps giving me this look, b/c it's making so much noise." I'm like - well, yes, but like I said, they are heavy. (In fairness, the DLs were killing me, so although I was not dropping them, I was not setting them down lightly either.)

-Round of 3. I trimmed my callouses yesterday - so I was surprised that I got tears. But now I realize what has happened. These are not the normal blister tears from callouses. They are blood blisters. Which have now broken. I am now bleeding all over the bars. Good thing I have that towel!

-Round of 2. I'm now doing "finger-tip" cleans. Holding the bar one knuckle down so I don't a) bleed all over it, and b) tear my hands up any more.

-After finishing and wiping down the bench, I wander around trying to figure out what I should do with the sweaty, blood-stained towel. I think about hiding it. Will they know it was me? Finally, I decide I don't give a damn what they think, so I just hang it back up where I found it. I'd like to see them kick me out of the gym - I'm paid up through December 2011 bitches!

-Happy with the performance. I was hoping for sub-20, since power cleans go much more quickly. Of course, going more quickly meant I was slightly more fatigued on DLs and bench.

-Power cleans are so much easier than squat cleans. But at the same time, Linda felt a little "incomplete" for me today w/o the squats. Don't get me wrong, it was still f-ing hard. But afterwards, almost every part of me was tired, but not really my legs (except for hammies).

WOD 30 of 200 as rx'd in 2010

Im 16 yrs old. Im 6 foot 4 and weigh 200lbs.
I did this exercise friday the 19th.
I cannot Deadlift 300lbs but i did do 230..
I cannot Bench 200lbs 10 times so i did 190..
and I cleaned 140lbs.

I sometimes like to throw in some crossfit exercises with my workouts. So Im not an avid "crossfitter"

Im just curious to see how i did and hope to start incorporating more WODs into my weightlifting. I really like it a lot. Thanks

Had to scale some and, even with the scaling, this took me 1:07:10. The squat cleans really slowed me down because I'm not quite comfortable with linking them together yet as my form suffers big time. So, I really concentrated on doing proper squat cleans.

Was pretty pumped to even finish this.

right around 5 rep round, some dude at my local air force base globo-gym interrupted because he was annoyed i was using three bars at a time- conversation went something like this:
dude: are you using this [bench]?
me: yep
dude: are you using that bar?
me: yep
dude: how bout that bar?
me: yep
dude: you can't do that
me: here, let me give you a bar from another machine (i proceed to waste precious linda time to deliver dude a bar)
dude: uh, thanks man, you know... i can only lift one bar at a time, hehe. (failed sarcasm)
me: well, I'm using three
dude: so what are you doing there? is that like a weird rowing thing?
me: no, it's a clean.
dude: a cling? a claim? spell it.
me: a clean, like opposite of dirty. i'm doing a circuit, can i continue?
dude: sure man, can i get a spot?

probably could've shaved off 2 minutes if not for dude. i suppose i should stop talking to strangers.

Great workout. Enjoyed it. That's a lie. I felt like I was going to pass out when it was done...had to walk 3 miles sipping on gatorade on the treadmill just to get myself back into gear so I could wrap up with some mild calisthentics.

6'2", 210 lbs. Sets: bench 225, clean 185, dead lift 315.

Definitely get a lot of weird looks from folks at Golds Gym when I'm doing these. Good thing: usually some other military guys see me and recognize it as the CrossFit W.O.D. and jump in!

30 minutes flat.

BRUTAL!

The last time I did "Linda" I used:

DL: 205
BP: 95
Clean: 75

The deadlifts were just completely too heavy and my form was terrible, which I paid for in pain for several days. A valuable lesson! Since then, I have taken my CrossFit fundamentals class, and gotten MUCH stronger.

With the weights I used this time, I felt like I had great form and I felt great the day after.

first time doing Linda with squat cleans.

oh lordy. Not strong enough to go as r/x yet

used 100kg DL, 70kg Bench (a bit light), 50kg Sq Cleans

34.17

Squat cleans add a whole new dimension to this one.

One of the mentally and physically toughest WODs I've done.

The deadlifts are the hardest part for me. First round unbroken. Bodyweight bench press feels relatively easy, all rounds unbroken. Nice squat cleans this time, broken in two sets until round 6, round 5 to 1 unbroken.
Did a few extra reps because I lost count (as always when all the blood is in my muscles and little blood and oxygen left for my brain...).

DL: 275
BP = 185
Sqt Cl = 135

Much better at DL lift this time. Sets were in 5 and 4 most of the time. BP was always straight thru. Sqt cleans were not the greatest but got through 4s and 3s. Lower back will be sore from DL but fought through it. Used HRM to rest better. Knew DL and sore lower back were the constraints for completion. Started a lift only after HR got below 70%. Figured it was better to be slower but fresher for the lifts. Avg HR was 67%.
10-4.39 61%
9-5.58 65%
8-6.24 67%
7 and 6 = 11.13 66%
5- 3.47 69%
4 and 3 - 6.06 70%
2- 1.55 70%
1- 0.47 75%

Total = 40:54. New LYNN PR from 51:53

Comment #574 - Posted by: Matt A at August 13, 2009 6:55 PM

DL was the limiting factor and bad form most of all of it. DL sets were 3's and 2s.
Sqt Clean were 4's then 3's
BP was straight through each set.
After rd of 6, at 33 min.
Finished at 51:53.
A killer workout.
Can't really imagine getting in the 30's without a massive strength improvement in dead lift. Sets of 4 or 5 could make it doable but all in all a frickn tough one. Longest workout for me other than run 6 miles.

Not quite as rx'd (220/160/120) deadlift should have been 240 but form is still not spot on and forgot stopwatch. Little over 35min which is worse than last time but the cleans and bench were correct weight and deadlift is way more than I did last time so definitely an improvement.

Good job feeling the steel on sq cleans, esp at mid thigh. Bar closer to body - easier to get elbows out & keep hand from hurting.

Did this workout for the first time. It was a killer. I probabaly shouldn`t have done my regular workout and I wouldn`t have almost passed out. Got it done in 16.33. DL275/ BENCH 185/ CLEAN 135. IM 5`8 180 my years of playing football didnt prepare me for this. But I love the challenge and hopefully will compete in the games on day. Congrats to all who can even finish the Linda

deadlift-94
bench-55
clean-55
Deadlift felt like right amount-could do the movement correctly, but fatiqued by end of reps.
Bench felt a little light. Cleans were ok, movement wasn't "ugly", but definitely hard.

21:03 (PR)
last time: 29:50
previous PR: 24:44
DL-235
BP-155
PC-115
BP- unbroken
PC-unbroken. These really suck the life out of me and made the transition back to the DL a slow one.
DL-started alright, then was broken into 2 sets. I should be able to do this one unbroken, but I have found out lately that my grip strength is pretty weak.
