Good look Taz. :-)

If a rep is failed, do we repeat until clean is achieved?

Comment #3 - Posted by: Jay at April 19, 2010 5:05 PM

I think "reps to comments" is a mistake. It should be "weights to comments".

This should be interesting tomorrow - can't quite believe how sore my legs are after today's WOD...

Comment #4 - Posted by: gazaloo/m/45/160lbs/5'9" at April 19, 2010 5:48 PM

If I am reading this right, we are doing 1 rep in minute 1, 2 reps in minute 2, 3 in 3, and so on, correct? Are we supposed to be doing max loads for reps within that minute?

Comment #5 - Posted by: Anthony at April 19, 2010 5:51 PM

anthony, you do 1 rep per minute...for a total of 15 reps.

Comment #6 - Posted by: tyler 30/m/200/6' at April 19, 2010 5:54 PM

Is this 15 total reps/minutes to find a 1RM? Or 1 rep in minute 1, 2 reps in minute 2, etc. If the latter, what kind of weight is suggested?

Comment #7 - Posted by: Whit at April 19, 2010 5:56 PM

some help please ???

I am putting a box together and would appreciate some advice on what I can use as flooring.

I see that plywood sheets can be a reasonable option for weightlifting platforms and are relatively inexpensive at the hardware store.

Could I go further and cover all of the area where weights will be used with plywood sheets and avoid the cost of rubber which is very expensive in New Zealand and does not seem to be carried by equestrian dealers etc. ?

The floor in space I have (90m2)is a very good smooth concrete finish. I would welcome any views on this and apologies if this is not really the place to ask such a question.

Chris,
use the forums, there's a whole section on equipment. You should only be posting things here about that day front page stuff.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Rob at April 19, 2010 6:02 PM

Totally mis-read todays WOD. I did 100 meters of walking lunges. 300 lunges instead of 120. Oh well, my glutes will thank me in the end.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Denis at April 19, 2010 6:08 PM

so i did the wod 21-15-9 225 dl and 135 ohs today, but had to scale the ohs to 105. my time was atrocious at 20+ minutes and it was the ohs that got me, particularly felt like a lack of balance from my shoulders. was stringing them together in 5's and 6's. after reading other peoples times on this wod, i am kind of beating myself up about it. what steps do i take to improve my ohs? should i practice walking with a weighted barbell overhead? lightweight snatches? i am 6'2" and wont use it as an excuse, but does that make it harder for me to get heavy on these things? last time we had a 1 rep max for ohs it was 135. thanks in advance.

Comment #15 - Posted by: john poulos at April 19, 2010 6:38 PM

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the wod calls for "cleans", not power cleans - why is the example video not showing cleans? This may be a little misleading to newbs who instead of practicing a clean with lesser weights, will hammer on heavier and do power cleans. Now, sure it'll be a good workout, but will they learn a clean is this way? nope...

Comment #22 - Posted by: Prolix at April 19, 2010 7:24 PM

I'm clear on the 1 rep/per minute. What is the goal with the load? Ascend for 15 Minutes? That was not the case in the video. Ascend till you miss, then work at 90-95%? Ascened for 8 minutes thne descend for 7? Please fill me in if you KNOW. Eager to try this one. Great weights Tommy, Ben and Miranda.

Comment #23 - Posted by: Brock Wilson at April 19, 2010 7:26 PM

It is not the critic who counts MF'ers. Gleason clean if you want to clean. Power clean if you want to power clean. Nevertheless I am sure that you or anyone else who participates in tomorrow's WOD with either version will be better for it.
Tommy just F'ing crushed a F'ing 335 F'ing clean. Those other two were not too shabby either.
I tell you what Gaucoin, you clean 335 with perfect form and I will kiss my own backside two times running sideways.
The idea is intensity driven. That means to push it until form may or may not falter. If it isn't starting to look a little crazy toward the end then it's probably not pushing the intensity. You show me an athlete who manages perfect form throughout a wod and I'll show you someone who could have gone harder. Some coaches and athletes’ may not agree with this...not my concern.
CrossFitters, I may get frustrated with you but I still love everyone of you MF'ers.

Wow! That is some impressive weight guys. Great trainers lead by example. Keep up the great work ya'll.

It is great to see all these videos and links on the main site lately. They are helpful and interesting, but I only have time to watch them on my day off from WODs. I'll catch up eventually.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Vanessa at April 19, 2010 7:55 PM

Hey Matt,

I am very sore right now. More then I thought I would be. I even threw 400 meter rows in between the lunges and squats. May as well go hard or go home.

Denis

Comment #27 - Posted by: Denis at April 19, 2010 7:57 PM

Thurmond et al...my question was not of the efficacy of a power clean workout vs. a clean workout. I simply find it ineffective to show a video (strength and performance aside) which does not provide proper and consistent examples of a clean. Ponder this...when a workout with "clean" shows up, one chooses to power clean, then a "power clean" workout shows up and the same chooses to again, power clean. When does this athlete learn cleans? How does the athlete improve and become better if the athlete does not learn to clean? This was the centre of the question, not whether these particular people are strong or better than anyone else. It was not a post meant to critique or offend, just to evoke thought.

#24 Thurmond

Problem is, Ben wasn't cleaning 275lbs with good form, which would have been 30lbs of his max in this video. A met-con is one thing, but letting your form go to crap on max efforts is another.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Wheels at April 19, 2010 8:10 PM

Well put Gleason! The video was nice to watch and they moved some big weight; however at our box we will be doing the full squat clean. It will be great no matter how you do this, power or squat clean.

Comment #31 - Posted by: Daugherty at April 19, 2010 8:17 PM

A clean is a clean is a clean? I've seen people that have been made fun of for asking if a clean should be a squat clean and the answer is often "saying squat clean is being redundant". Looks like a fun workout either way... but I agree that it should be more clear. Saying "Clean" but then showing power cleans in the video is confusing.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Matt at April 19, 2010 8:21 PM

question about POSE running?

i'm trying to coach myself on how to do it right by watching the videos and what not, and notice my calfs are really burning after runs..is tat normal? help?

Comment #33 - Posted by: j at April 19, 2010 8:23 PM

decided to do this tonight....
used 185lb for the clean and went ass to the ground.
Not bad..
could have used more weight but o well.
If I would have power cleaned it would have been a different story.

Comment #35 - Posted by: Shane at April 19, 2010 8:30 PM

#29 but this isn't a max effort either or you wouldn't get less than one minute of rest. Try it and you'll see.

Did both power and squat cleans. Started at 180, PR'd a power clean at 215 around rep 8, PR'd a squat clean at 215 on rep 9. Then CNS started going to crap.

180/215

Comment #36 - Posted by: hax at April 19, 2010 8:41 PM

J #31...

Yes, that is normal. You should introduce the change gradually, increasing by only a couple minutes at a time, until you can complete longer runs without pain.

A friend of mine has taken about 3 weeks to build up to 35 minutes of forefoot/midfoot running.

When I switched, I did it all at once and had calf pain as well... now I know better.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Greg at April 19, 2010 8:46 PM

For all those confused, I believe the following is the correct interpretation of todays workout:

1 rep each minute for a final total of 15 reps. Do as much weight each time as you think you can manage. If you beat your 1RM at some point, awesome! If not, good work anyway, you just did 15 badass reps. If you want to go for 1RM, you might not want to work up to it over 15 reps, i.e., around #7 or #8 your body will probably be in best position (warmed up and not yet fatigued) to get your max effort for the 15. This is what you see in the video, they hit their max about halfway in, and then just tried to maintain above their lowest weight from there on out.

As for squat clean vs. power clean. The WOD just say "clean." And I've seen WODs that have specified "power clean" and other WODs that have specified "squat clean." So it seems to me that either would be acceptable. So do whichever strikes your fancy, or both! ...Or you could do the infamous, never before successfully attempted ultra-clean...perhaps I've said too much...

Comment #38 - Posted by: samtheman at April 19, 2010 8:52 PM

should be a good time eh?? (:

Comment #39 - Posted by: Nick at April 19, 2010 8:58 PM

Unless the WOD specifically states that a clean must be caught in a squat, a power clean is perfectly fine. If you compete in the Olympic Games in weightlifting, it is legal to power clean the weight.

Comment #43 - Posted by: Hanna at April 19, 2010 9:19 PM

***FRAT***

Love this wod structure! I recently did a similar workout at Crossfit Oneworld in which we did one push-jerk on the minute every minute for 20 minutes. It was great.

However, Freddy programmed it so that you did the entire wod using the same weight (approx. 80% of your current 1RM)

This also makes the workout more convenient for us garage gym types so we don't have to keep swapping out weights during the rest periods.

That's how I'm gonna do it, get some everybody!

Comment #44 - Posted by: Playoff Beard at April 19, 2010 9:38 PM

Thurmond, why so aggressive? 150kg (335#) is not an impressive weight to clean for a 90kg (200#) male. Heavy for a globo gym yes, but that form is brutal, super wide stance to catch which is not safe. Lots of wrist racking as well, extremely dangerous if caught at the bottom (elbow will smash knee = broken radius).

Comment #45 - Posted by: grambo at April 19, 2010 9:50 PM

Can anybody please tell me the name of the song or band that was playing during the McGhee workout day video, or a way to find out? Sounds like a girl punk band, I want to download it but have no idea who it is.

Comment #47 - Posted by: gubbers at April 19, 2010 10:15 PM

That video is a disgrace..The horrible form being used in that video is exactly the opposite of what crossfiters should be doing. It is also the reason why others in the functional fitness and oly lifting communitites are against crossfit. The lack of attenttion to detail with regards to form. If I let clients lift like that in my box I would be out of business fast from all the injuries. Form must be stressed above all else, if so, everything else will fall into place. Guranteed!

Comment #48 - Posted by: John at April 19, 2010 10:50 PM

I stand by what I said in the above post, but my hat does come off to the crossfiters in the vid. Moving that type of weight is impressive and a great show of strength.

Comment #51 - Posted by: CrossFit Auckland at April 19, 2010 11:40 PM

NorCal rocks :-)

NIce work to everyone in the clean vid. I watched it twice. Not sure why the technique is so horrible as some have stated. None of the three are accomplished Olympic weightlifters, nor do any of them specialize in weightlifting. I didn't see any of them doing anything that I think would risk injury.

And now for my rant:

Squat clean vs power clean. Seriously, does it matter? You can get a great workout if you do it either way.

Suck at the squat clean? Just do a power clean! This workout is programmed to give you an out! Unfortunately, you will never get better at the things you suck at if you avoid them.

In our ever attempt to lift bigger weight (and post as big a number possible on this site), we forget that there is nothing wrong with lifting lighter the right way rather than heavier the wrong way. More lifts lighter and right will get you to better results sooner than heavier lifts performed heinously wrong.

Besides, ugly sucks ass.

Comment #52 - Posted by: freddy c._one world at April 20, 2010 12:00 AM

Ben could add a heap of weight to his clean if he delayed his arm bend and exploded with his hips. If you pause the video, you'll see he starts pulling with his arms when the bar is around knee height and consequently loses a heap of power.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Brad at April 20, 2010 12:40 AM

So is this a clean(full clean squat) or a power clean?

Comment #54 - Posted by: Kermit at April 20, 2010 1:01 AM

135/185(PR).
After 11, went to squat cleans (165). Max reps of 5 on last set.

Comment #55 - Posted by: Xman at April 20, 2010 1:33 AM

30/M/143/5'10

As far as I see from Olympic lifters, you can lift more weight just when you clean, look at the video of the clean and jerk of 581 lb (WR) by Hossein Reza Zadeh of Iran, FORM IS EVERYTHING, he got perfect form. however if you never clean before, I would recommend to work on form and get it right rather than going for the WOD. I don't think the WOD is to get your 1X RM. I am going with the playoff beard starting at 85% maybe 90% of my 1 x RM, I will go with higher weight in the last 5 reps.

right from the FAQ,

2.15. What's the difference among the clean (and snatch) types?
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.
Tip o' the hat to Keith Wittenstein

Have a nice WOD everybody. I bet the rower from the other day won't lift more weight than Tommy Hackenbruck today, ;) I love Crossfit.

@ Roger #56 (?)

Crossfit and crossfit endurance should be done together. If you have time read the crossfit endurance faq it will explain how to incorporate both routines.

Also, crossfit endurance schedules it's endurance workouts without knowing what the crossfit mainsite wods are. crossfit endurance is now also posting a strength wod which compliments the endurance wod.

But you should read their faq. They explain it a lot better then me.

Comment #66 - Posted by: miker at April 20, 2010 5:34 AM

The only person using decent form in that video is Miranda

Miranda's SQ Clean at 165 around the half way point is the bean "clean" in the video and the way I'd suggest doing this wod.

Tommy's form is OK - but going too heavy

Ben needs to drop about 60lbs and work on form. Ben is reverse curling every clean.

If you skip through these at slow motion you'll learn a ton of what not to do.

Not sure why crossfit would bother to put that video on their site. Those two guys are going to mess up everything in their bodies. They both let their hips rise before their shoulders, don't move the bar fast enough (which is the whole point of olympic lifting) and catch with their backs rounded, feet turned too far out, and elbows down... Very bad examples. It's no wonder Ben's form got astronomically better when he dropped to 275#... 315 is too heavy for him.

Worked on some squat cleans in rounds 11-13 with 135. Pr'd with 175 at Round 15. Only a PR becuase I am still pretty new to Oly lifts and haven't really tried putting up much weight, mostly have jsut worked on form, staying around the 135 lb mark. Did sneak some chalk into my globo today, helped a TON. Climbing chalk via EMS, good stuff!

Comment #94 - Posted by: lil_Mess at April 20, 2010 8:54 AM

Random thoughts -

Better form is "better" only in the efficiencies it generates and therefore in the loads/reps it allows us to complete.

CF's charter is not "better form because that's what the pros in that particular discipline can do by spending their lives learning that discipline." CF's charter/goal is in the physiological adaptation that results from using that particular exercise modality.

Obviously, safety is always primary in any endeavor. Injured=time not training.

Ponder those comments in light of the video. Damn, those three are strong. With my best form, I'm good for maybe 270 on a clean (at 185 lb bw). Should be fun.

my PR is 255 for this WOD I had 185/235. Failed at 240 and for my last 5 reps I switched from squat cleans to power cleans and stuck at 225 to work on my elbow speed. The short rest period was killer on this one.

Finished up with some ring dips and HSPUs.

Comment #104 - Posted by: Bill Hoogsteden at April 20, 2010 10:11 AM

Well...I can still see this one, Freddy. :)

IMHO: When I first started CF I think I would have been asking some of the same questions as those who are asking about "which clean". I'm by no means an expert now but after some time, you figure out what "cleans" are. What you need to ask is according to whom. If you ask a basic CFer I'm guessing they would offer you options. Whereas if you ask an oly person, they would stare at you blankly and wonder why you would ask that question--but answer you.

I'm guessing as a CFer, any form of "clean" is acceptable. Everyone here works out for themselves. What you should ask and wonder is what are you trying to achieve?

Right now I'm 5mos pregnant and still did the WOD. I started at a 65# clean (squat) and went up to 95# (squat). I concentrated on form and making sure that my hip crease was below my knees. Not huge numbers but something I could safely manage--especially being pregnant.

I must admit, I really set out to do “The Bear”. I had just done 30 C&J @100# on Sunday. Barely could get through two rounds of the Bear today. Sore throat, feel like crap, shoulders/ back tight. Picked up the bar and just started cleaning it. Nailed a PR and held it for 7 times. Sweet!

Comment #108 - Posted by: in8girl at April 20, 2010 10:26 AM

Reminds of a time that I was working cleans while deployed recently. I had a particulary epic fail on a clean and a guy that was stretching in the same room nearby very honestly and sincerely offered me a "spot" if I needed it.
"Huh???"
"What??"
"A spot on a clean??"

I tried my best to describe what a clean/Oly lift was and that by using bumpers and good bailing techniques I was "self-spotting." I thanked him but said that he would get hurt very easily trying to spot a full clean. We started talking about Crossfit and he started coming to our CF WOD time the next day.

Enjoy.

Nice WOD, Getting stronger and Stronger the attempts that i failed was because i didn't pull my self under the bar too fast or maybe I didn't extend my self half an inch more that i needed to get under the bar. Nice WOD though, i never though that i was going to get that much weight, Did 30 Candle Sticks from gymnastics, L sits for in the floor 3 rounds of 20 seconds holding the L sit, and Hollow holds 3 x 20 seconds. played with handstand for a little. and the CFWU for the end. Have a nice one everybody.

Cleans (aka squat clean) - 160/135 lbs

I believe when the WOD says "clean," you should be doing a squat clean and only doing a power clean if told to do so. Maybe that is incorrect, but if you watch the demo videos that is how they are shown.

A clean is a clean is a clean. Do whatever you can or have to do to clean the load effectively. With increased technique, your highest loads will inherently require deeper squats. Watch the video of Tommy, Miranda & Ben. Depending on their loads, their squat depth fluctuated accordingly as needed. Too many folks here get hung up on "squat or power". Even in Oly lifting competitions the squat is not required, they don't squat because they have too, it is used as a tool and technique to clean more weight.

I AM SO PUMPED!!

I started doing power cleans 20 years ago and in my twenties hit a max power clean of 175#. A year ago I started crossfit and got back to a 170# power clean max but I also started trying to do full cleans but they've always been weaker. UNTIL TODAY. I cleaned 180# !!! That's 10lbs more than my power clean max and 25# more than my last clean max.

(as you can tell,I'm pretty excited)

WOD all full cleans 135/180

It went like this:
135-140-145-150-155-160-160-165-165-170-170-175-175-180-180

I just kept being able to do them.

Crossfit ROCKS!!

C/D: 8 mobility exercises.

Full squat cleans. I was curious how I would do today, given how tired my back and legs are from this and the last cycle. 225# is only 15# below my 1RM PR so I'm happy with this performance. Exacerbated my left lower back injury on the last 225# attempt. Not too happy about that. But, I don't think it's all that bad.

175/155

All squat cleans. 175# is a pr for squat clean version.

The thing I like about this WOD is it hinders "paralysis through analysis": Hear the beep on stopwatch and go.

The Olympic lifts and the golf swing are similar in the sense that they are both highly technical. One of the best drills to free up the swing is to hit 5 - 8 balls in fairly rapid succession. This WOD has the same effect for me with the lifts. However, the next best thing to free up the golf swing is a couple of beers or double rums...

Have a great rest day all!

Comment #198 - Posted by: Ronnieboy at April 20, 2010 4:18 PM

I hear you Ronnieboy regarding paralysis by analysis. I was just cleaning the bar and didn't think about the weight. After my workout I had to move the bar out of the way and was kind of shocked at how heavy it felt to deadlift it.... let alone get it to my shoulders. If I had more time between lifts, I could have easily psyched myself out.

Comment #201 - Posted by: CodyS m/16/6'0"/190 at April 20, 2010 4:23 PM

Hey all! Thanks for all of the comments and critism of the cleans. I 100% agree that with better technique at getting under the load in a squat clean will eventually lead to adding more weight to my clean. Tommy, Ben and I all understand that completely. As I said in the end of the video I am better at power cleans than I am at squat cleans which is why I went with the power clean for max weight for the first 10 min and then worked my squat clean for the last 5.

I have only been doing this movement for 2.5 years and I remember like 2 years ago that 65-75# was a struggle in WODs. I can assure you that A LOT of work has gone into improving my technique since then!!

We must remember that CrossFitters are not specialists in these movements, and while focusing on better technique each time we lift is very important and largely encouraged we will never be masters at these movements. These movements are complicated and I know at least for me...will always need refining. Isn't that the point? Threshold training??

Almost forgot!

Along with WOD today, did my first 5 mile run! Always thought that fatties couldn't run that far, but looks like I'm wrong.

Think of Crossfit as the Decathlon of training. Would Brian Clay's 1500m compare to Lagat? No. Can he put the shot as far as Hoffa? No. But he does them all at an exceptional level. Sacrificing perfection at one skill, for mere excellence at all skills. In Oly circles the Decathlon champion is considered the Worlds Greatest Athlete.

Stopped at 144 because it simply felt heavy enough. Plus I would have had to reconfigure entire bar to go higher. I bailed for the first time. I have metal weights and they went crashing down onto the plywood I was using to boost them up a bit to compensate for smaller starting plates.

No new records so I just have to be happy realizing the progress I have made. I have Cleaned 185 in the past as a PR. Today I couldn't even get 175. Ouch. Only made 165 today.

Happy realizing the progress I have made however. Back when... it was hard to clean 135 now I can get 155 with OK form. Its the little things that count.

probably should've done higher weight at the end, since I still had enough gas to do 5 more at 125-135. at same time, lighter weight meant I could pay more attention to form.

I quit around half way for a very important reason...

135/145/155/165/175/175 (tie-ing my PR... i think)

Now the reason why I quit half way...

There has been this new guy that's been going to the 24 hour fitness that seems to know a lot about what he's doing so I went to talk to him.
Turns out that he's a coach for athletes.

I asked him to help teach me the clean and he taught me a lot more then what I used to know. I also showed him my air squat flexibility and he knew right away that my problem was my hip flexors which I've been knowing for quite some time. He showed me exercises to help stretch and strengthen my hip flexors. He told me alot of times its not just the hip flexors being tight. The hip flexors might be too weak to be able to pull you down into the bottom of a air squat.

I also told him about my problem with the jerk and that how the plates are metal and not rubber. He told me about this gym that he described basically as it being a 24 hour fitness for power lifters. The price was basically the same as the 24 hour fitness also. I'll go check it out on Thursday.

I'm sick and tired of the 24 hour fitness. It's too "Fake" for me...

interesting WOD. i really wanted to work up to 205, but that was just a number, because heavy cleans aren't something I do ever, and I had no idea where to go. I think I've done 185 before, but never 205, so it was a good day to get it 5 times, pretty easily. sometimes i noticed that I was getting the bar moving really fast and the weight felt like nothing, other times I didnt get the same acceleration and it was much harder between hips and shoulders.

started at 135 and worked up each set by 10s. Did full cleans until 175. Switch to power cleans and got up to 225 with no failures. Worked back down to 175 doing squat cleans for form. Didnt time perfectly for a minute but 15 sets took roughly 20 minutes. 225 is a notable PR as I failed at 175 in Feb. Love Crossfit!

Officially started my 15 min with 160 maxed out at 185. Miranda kicked my but at the level 1 cert in Afghanistan and did it again today.

Fun WOD! Previous PR on squat clean was 215. I like the "on the minute" lift, b/c it forces you to just go - don't think too hard, don't psyche yourself out, etc. I did 16 reps b/c I had to end on a positive note. The last one was a real confidence builder - might have been my best pull of the day!

All squat cleans!

One of my first ever non-scaled WODs! I have been dabbling in crossfit ideas for about a year now, but I rarely do the WODs or else I scale them by about 2/3 the weight or 2/3 the volume. This was a good workout and I finished it off with 2 sets for my calves and 2 sets for abs.

HUGE PR!!! I had only done 205 before

It's like the angry animal finally woke up to get the bar to move like it needed. Felt really good. Should have started higher, but my previous PR of 205 wasn't far from 185. Good Day!

I actually did the data driven WOD
15:03 (3 rounds of: 10 parallette clapping pushups, 250 meters row, 20 reps of 85 lbs power snatch for time)
I was really consistent.. I did about 20 secs for the clapping pushups and about 1:00 for the row and then about 3:00 for the 20 power snatches (this was a lot slower than I wanted.. ) My hands were shredded from my last D.L. WOD, but I taped them.. not too bad. I tried to slow down a little to try to kind of work on my form a bit and keep the bar close... FUN WOD)

175 is probably a decent clean, although I noticed I am pulling with my arms too soon. 185 and above is definitely a power clean. Need to work on form.

few failed reps at 170 finally got it on last one. mostly went back and forth between 120 140 160. changing weights meant little to no rest between sets.

Felt good overall. Kept core, esp lower abs tight. Really helped. Pretty good shrug made a difference on reps where I remembered. Pleased w/weight & ability to maintain that weight. Prob need to tighten range next time. Still not sure about adequate use of hips.
