lol @ the interview with Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, at the beginning she said she recently started training in Crossfit Brossard... LOL I live in Brossard and I didn't even know there was a CF gym here.... i'll hope to see here there =)
Just subbed this one with gwen and Fran on the day with the 3 wods in one. It sucked then now it's just rrrrreeeeeaaalllllyyygonna suck. Ha ha. But that's crossfit ain't it?
As if Clever wasn't already a beast. . .Isabelle at 135lbs. . . .WOW!!!
I guess mainsite is back to normal? Honestly I was starting to have fun. I haven't had to scale that much in a while and I still couldn't produce the times those guys did. I'm a fan. I saw some sad faces in the comments. Personally I loved the challenge and if HQ suddenly decided to make main page more regularly hard like that I would be a fan. I think Pat Barber was the only guy who said he did mainsite and he didn't even make it this year. What do you think guys? Should lots of the standards be beefed up? Should the girl WOD's be retooled? Has CF hit a new standard for what elite fitness is about? I have never even done a regular Helen but I was able to tackle the double Helen rx'd. Sure I almost doubled grahams time. And it made me hurt like I haven't hurt in a while. But the challenge felt awesome. Thoughts?
#3, I second that. Amazing athlete, as well as drop dead gorgeous, great face of crossfit :)
Question- I have been watching a lot of muscle up videos lately. My question is about full range of motion. I know that arms must be locked out at the bottom, hands turned out so that the thumb points forward, legs mist be fully extended at the bottom, and then arms mist be locked out at the top. My question is away how you string them together. If you can meet all those standards can you swing into the next one, like how you see people fall away from the rings and swing into the next rep. I am just curious about why they are looking for in competition, complete dead hang between reps? Thanks for any help!
Did singles for warmup up to 165
used 125 as I have always done on isabel
I think it's awesome hot our girls manage to look hotter than all others even at a 2220 bpm. Excellent.
no big deal josh everrett does isabelle in about 70 seconds
that was how and 220... keyboard kinda got away form me...
CAMILLE!!!!!!!!!! NEW DESKTOP IMAGE AND WALLPAPER FOR MY ROOM!!!!! THANK YOU CROSSFIT!!!!!!!!
interesting stuff, after all these wods they have been posting after the games it has been pretty challenging, it seems they have been
Ready to laugh? Looks like there was a small misunderstanding in the Muscle and Fitness Hers article... on the 2nd to last page, look at the weight you should use for Helen. oh how i wish hahaha
decided to bump it up to 155, 6:56. Got excited after seeing Lipson do Isabelle in 1:03. man that is friggin impressive.
I've been waiting for this one. We shall see if my snatch practices have paid off.
Does anyone feel that commercial is a little pretentious? To me, it gives off that elitist attitude that many crossfitters have. Don't get me wrong, doing a WOD in an open park makes sense. But, doing a WOD in a downtown urban area? Hmm.
The Air Force WoD on Tuesday, abbreviated 5K today (read: 2.5K), and Isabelle tomorrow? YEAH!
Did it at 177lbs in 3:40. I'm gonna try for a sub 1 min as prescribed soon. Love that again faster video. I take my classes outside in nyc and people look at us like we have eight heads or something.
So u have to pick a weight u can do 30 times? So you can't do 10 @ 135lb, 10 @ 115 & 10 @ 95 for example..
My goal here is simply to beat Kristan's time...
Should this be a squat snatch or does it matter? In the two vidoes demos one shows power snatches the other shows squat snatches... thanks for your comments.
If there are any Cross Fitters in Thailand who are interested in finding someone to train with please contact me. Some good spirited competition would be great! Thank you.
Scaled to 95lbs. Need to spend more time on this movement.
Was that an interview with Camille? Or trying to score a date? Whatever. I don't blame the dude. :-)

I agree that the games WODs were awesome and definitely a challenge, but I am glad to get back to some of the old standards. Having done the girls WODs for so long, I would be personally hate to see them get retooled. Coach Glassman created such an efficient system that I think works for the vast majority of Crossfitters.
However, for those at the competition level, additional programming is probably necessary. Rather than altering the standard WOD to fit the minority, I would rather see them post a second "Games Track" WOD for those that want to take it up a notch. It could be double the standard WOD, more weight, or even a completely different WOD. It would be similar to the BrandX scaled WODs, except the reverse.
Last WOD before the Canadian Death Race in Grande Cache. Putting Xfit to the test on the old mine road and Hamel assault.
Go Death Racers!
2:32 as Rx'd (PR by :50)
Sick commercial. That's what I'm talking about!
You are amazing. I was so glad that I got a chance to meet you and get to know you a little at the Games. Everyone is right...you are a great person to represent our sport and our community! Keep it up girl!
Camille looks great yes, but she finished 9th in the games. Why isn't Kristan who WON the games and dominated in a fashion that no one ever has before featured? You feature the men's winner yesterday, and today pick someone farther down in the ranks for a pretty face? Isn't this about function over form (guess not based on the comments on Camille's appearance, are we training for aesthetics?). Form follows function.
Miranda - you are incredible - double PR! great video!
Todays qoute is kind of funny considering this (http://games.crossfit.com/blog/2010/07/scoring-games,707/) discussion about scoring the games.
I think it's cool that crossfit is being recognized more in mainstream media but it still seems like they don't take it seriously. Oh,and I like how Adel Garcia called what she does a sport. Looking good is not a sport, it's called vanity and it doesn't matter how much you get paid for doing it, it's still pointless.
Not only she has a sister, but a twin sister....and she does crossfit....imagine that.
Yeah, I agree with Patrick, doing in a WOD in an urban area like that is totally pretentious. If I saw someone doing that around me it would totally turn me off from Crossfit.
First time was 3:14 RX I was not satisified with that time, so ....15 min. later 2:35 RX
4:25 as rx'd. Much harder than I thought
Scaled to 65#
Talking about checking your ego at the door. Sheesh.
Gotta say, tho, I am working w/ back injuries (hopefully saved a little face).
There's too many vids being posted lately. It's making the page crowded and a little saturated. What's others thoughts on this?
It says "snatch" not "power snatch" which means you have to do a full squat, correct? And if so, how many actually did full squat?
Loved the commercial! A little guerilla marketing, Again Faster style.
95 lb standing shoulder press 5 sets, 3 reps

Does anybody besides me wanna hear an interview with Mikko post games?? His thoughts and feelings... Man, i wanted him to win!! He is SISU!!!
Someone's telling me that butterfly kipping pull ups are bad for you because you use your shoulder joint to catch yourself when fatigued. I've scoured the data but haven't found anything addressing this specifically.
Links and thoughts are appreciated, please feel free to send it via e-mail
Love Miranda's calling of "Time!" after completing her final snatch in the first round.
subbed Fran (lower back sore from Tuesday's DL's.)
9:02 PR by half
Someone may be confused, making assumptions, or is ill-informed.
It is never recommended in any prescribed movement to give a load over to passive joint structures. Nor is it intrinsic to any of the movements.
Any useful movement can overload a joint if done incorrectly: whether from poor mechanics or because of excessive fatigue. That does not make the movements "bad." Driving a car with while sleepy is bad. Driving a car in general is not.
When done well, there can be a very smooth, rhythmic, predictable, ramp up of load falling into the bottom of the movement. The knees flex as the body falls, shortening the distance the center of mass travels. The shoulders are SET and ready for peek load before the knees extend through the bottom of the arc completing the ROM.
Besides, it makes sense that grip will fail before a healthy shoulder will.
Hope this helps.
Back hurting from DL from 16 on
Need to go faster
subbed 60 55 lb single arm snatch (30x each arm): 5:17
I thought the commercial was interesting for marketing purposes but just doing it on a regular basis may seem a bit odd.
I would imagine it's like any other demonstration in public to show presence.
2010-07-29: 3:11. Sub 100 with ps's. 1st time. Form not great.

I didn't think I would ever be able to do Isabel as Rx'd. I was planning on doing 95#.

Scaled to 115lb
Broken into sets of 5. Technique was lacking.
scaled to 95#
30 power snatches
Probably should have gone with a heavier weight.
scaled to 95#
As Rx'ed: 10:47
Little too heavy for me as it ended up looking more like a power clean into a shoulder press. Slowed down and tried to work on form, poor as it was. Might have used less weight if I had bumper plates to use.
Finished with CFE swim workout, 15 min. for max distance

As Rx'd in 7:02
Power snatches with rx'd weight, PS form still a little rough. 7.17
I'm a little behind. I did "Roy" this morning. 20:30. That wod really hurt. I'm still in a bit of a daze.
As rx... if it's OK to do power snatches.
30 power snatches at 95# time: 8:16
I don't think I've ever snatched more than 95# before. I've been trying to figure out squat snatches and the weight I'm doing on those is way below 95#. I should try this again soon as I was kind of cautious about the weight and didn't want to push to hard and get into a position where I'd be stumbling around a la Khalipa trying to get my last rep.
(no slight on Jason intended. The man is a beast who can push himself to limits I can only imagine... I just had an image of me crashing into the bikes, tricyle, baby stroller and go cart parked in the garage)
Did power snaches at 115#
Well I've been humbled. Snatches are by far my worst lift. Need a lot of work.
as rx'd (power) 16:46
Did lots of technique work before with low weight and then took the workout slow to focus on technique.
You're killing me. You could just said "yes," but to add "twin" and CFer.....

Crossfit Bday 072710
Went with 65lbs and worked on form. The weight was pretty easy but my form was !@#$%. 6 sets of 5.
First time doing this WOD. 2:49 with a 95# bar. Much too easy - next time will have to go heavier or Rx.

Well, it's very clear that I have not been "getting comfortable with uncomfortable" (as OPT would say) with Snatches!
80# Power Snatch
instead of saying you should have went heavier, you should have done a squat snatch instead of a power snatch.
Did Grace instead,
7:43. Took my time, form tight.
Scaled to 125#, time=7:58. I need MUCH practice on snatch skills.
I used a broomstick and finished 30 reps in 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
As rx'd (but definitely not pretty like the demo video...) 7:25.
Scaled to 75#, still the heaviest weight I've ever used for a snatch WOD (snarky shoulders).
6:02 (up in weight I go!)
Lt. Col. Mint, in his farewell WOD, busted his "Fran" cherry. 45# Oly bar--7:30.
S/F young Sir! Don't be a stranger.
BDL is just sick. Wicked sick. Sweet Christ man. Good job on sub 1 minute Rx. I am in awe.
Snatch 85 pounds, 30 reps
Scaled to 115. First Isabelle.
I am grateful for all of the amazing female athletes that are constantly raising the bar. These women set an example for our community and demonstrate what is possible through dedication and commitment. It's remarkable!
Camille - it was so much fun watching you at the Games and chatting afterwards - find that training partner and get fired up for next year!
Miranda - you rock, chica.
Petty, #103, that's an interesting way to look at it. I would look at it slightly differently, I am still working on full snatch and don't think it safe/prudent at this time to be doing full snatch for time. My main goal with today's wod was to hammer myself for 3-4 minutes or less as hard as I could go, especially considering we had more volume at the beginning of this three-day cycle. So rather than slowly do 30 full snatch I decided to instead do power snatch and then work on regular snatch. Most likely I would do the same next time but with more weight.
By the way, what was your time/load today? Yesterday? The day before that?
Me and SP used 100# power snatch to try and concentrate on good form at speed
Time 2:22 (SP finished just before me again)
More work faster Rev
wuz coaxed into doing the women's rx
Miranda - sub 2! you and me. sometime soon :-D
In Sept 09 I could barely do 95lbs once. Today I missed three reps, paced myself to focus on form/not missing any more reps. Crossfit rules.
as rx: 4:24 PR (first time)
could only get 3-4 at a time without form starting to really suck. so did sets of 3.
9:52 probably a pr.
didnt catch bar in full squat snatch but went into a full squat before coming back up.
tried out my brand new bumper wts,
too scared to drop them from the top tho.
functional equipment.com good price.

There were some ugly reps with alot of pressouts. But no misses.

Core strength & burgener warmups

Did mostly sets of 3, until the last set of 5. Unsure of myself on the snatch, and don't have the lungs to string a lot of them together yet.

CAMILLE HAS A TWIN!!!!!!!!! IM MOVING TO MONTREAL!!!!!!!!!!!
Can anyone see the label on Camille's sports bra? She is an amazing athlete, so I don't want to take away from her stellar performance at the games but as soon as I saw that bra top I was hoping for a close up on the label.
3:05 as rx'd, first Isabel
followed by 2:06 for Nancy
Haven't worked out in a couple weeks. Very happy to get back into things with snatches. This is a 2:25 improvement over my last time in Sep 2008. I do love this WoD.
6:43 had to scale to 115.
W/U: ROM exercises, 20x; power snatch, 4x3 at 45-65-85-105#.
As Rx: 5:38.
C/D: foam roll low back; shoulder press 135x5 - 145x3 - 155x1.
Power snatch w/controlled drop (no bumpers). First time doing this w/135#. Initial time was a squat snatch at 95# (3:01) and the next two times were squat snatches at 115# (4:07, 3:34). The snatch is still one of my many goats. Didn't feel strong enough to go any faster today.
Due to injuries I haven’t snatched, or put more than 90# over my head in over 2 months. It didn’t feel good, but I got it done :)

These are a weak point of mine and my form went out the window @ 115#. I could have done much better at 95 the whole way. I have to push to get better here.
I'm looking into doing a Not for Profit Military Affiliate at Papa Air Base, Hungary and I was wondering if anyone had any input. I'm looking to find out more info than what was in the FAQ section. Do i still need to pay the affiliate fee? Does the insurance and RRG stuff still not apply to non-CONUS locations if it is a military affiliate? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

much better than the 31:07 on the RXd day, it was blistering hot and tough to get through the WOD, this time was much easier, even after Isabel!
Day 3 on crossfit. I substituted the snatches for power cleans with 135 and did 8/6/6/5/5 with short breaks. Also did seated military press with 135 and the same reps. I've never done the snatch, and I'm sure my form is junk...

Wanted to work strength but keep intensity up, broke it up into
115x15 and 95x15. Up front, I know my numbers aren't great compared with the firebreathers, but looking back to my Level 1 Cert in may, I'm excited by the progress. I was dumping 95 lb snatches after 2 reps. Bottom line, if you haven't yet, get to a Level 1 Cert or an affiliate box- there's nothing like having somebody critique your form to get you to the next level. Can't wait to get to an Olympic Lifting Cert.
Time: 5:53 (4:00, 1:53);
Never done snatches before so watched a few videos and did some with the bar. Focused on not bowing my back, not sure if I went low enough.

some power, some squat
Never did these before; did 10 snatch balance to get a feel for it, then 30 snatch with just a bar.
So I wanted to compete with Miranda. Scaled to 95lb: 2:24 (30 reps). Her 29 reps beat me by 2 seconds. Her second attempt beat me by 11 seconds. Props to her. Later this week I will attempt 135lb but can't think of challenging Christopher's time.

Why is it okay to sub power snatch for snatch? Seems like cheating if you could have done full squat.

then did thrusters 3 sets of then @45# and
pushpress 3sets of ten @ 95#
used 95# about 10 minutes
Did not feel comfortable during the high pull phase, or the 'catch'.
9:51 mine was more a press than a catch.
Dont know what I was thinking should have done it as Rx'd and suffered more
Why snatch a weight you can power snatch? In the sport of weightlifting, you can power clean/power snatch, the athletes only catch in a squat because they can't pull maximal weights high enough. More power is generated in a power clean/snatch than the squat version, and isn't CF about maximizing power output?

Was confused I guess used 95# prob for the best need to work on form a bit.
Did it with 95 pounds...decided to try the lower weight to save my form and go for the cardio workout too instead of going with a higher weight and taking my time
Also did 30 pushups with hands leaving the floor at the bottom and 2 sets of 10 squats at 135 with maximun depth...trying to train to my weaknesses
I'm a wuss. Used 95lbs
2:15 with 95#
I thought I was going to die after this one...I'm going up in weight next time!
First time on this WoD and still learning the movement so I scaled the weight to 65# - didn't want to be a wuss so I did full snatches instead of power....why do a progression exercise when the WoD calls for the full version?
Time = 6:54
23 / M / 5'9" / 135lbs
65lb snatch x30
I got my form to be acceptable after a long warm-up and so had only a few ugly reps, though I wasn't fast. I'll probably try this with 80lbs next time.
catching up...as rx'd
rough after surfing for 3 hours....
6rnds of 400m run/ 25xburpees
done outside, no 1' target. tried to do a good jump each burpee. approx 450m runs
20-30 min rest then Isabel:
very very sweaty and hot
Excellent response. Thanks for the info. One thing that comes to mind is the intent behind the programing and the availability of scaling the weight. I understand that the programming is to maximize randomness in the exercises but I also think it is done in a very intentional way. The snatch with a full squat engages your core for balance in the squat unlike a power snatch. If that type of stress on the core is intentional in the programming, then it seems that a person that can power snatch 135 might need to scale up to "maximal" loads. I"m sure I'm over thinking it and I know that most the people doing power snatch @ 135 are far more fit that I am. I'll just shut my mouth now. Later
6:04 (pr by like 15 min from April!)
No bumper plates at the gym, so I sat this one out. I really hate doing WODs like this at my gym cuz everyone cries so much when you drop the weight. With Isabel Im bound to drop it from failure or a missed rep, whateva. Thats ok tho, I ordered 2 45s and 2 25 bumpers, they should be in the mail soon. Then next its a oly bar, a couple of 10s, iron 5s, squat rack, more 45s (2 bumper, 2 iron), maybe some 35s, then a plyo box and a list of other things but these 1st.

Mirand it was a pleasure to meet you at the games and all the other people too. It's crazy how everyone of crossfit are amazing people. I'm please to be a part of that community thanks evryone to be just who you are :)
Used 95lbs. Squat snatches.
Tried to go too fast at the beginning, and ended up missing a few, which cost me more time. I actually did this in under 9 mins last time (albeit with 85lbs), but back then I didn't have bumper plates so I paced myself really carefully.
As rx'd, power snatch, 4:29.
First time with Isabel! What a fun WOD! My snatch form needs a lot of work, most of these were muscle snatches that I had to press out. But I didn't have any misses, so that was good. First five straight, then a lot of dropping, lowering even to hang position from overhead w/ snatch grip was taking too much out of my back and forearms.

7:57 as Rx'd (squat snatch)

didn't time it!
still a very tough movement for me :(

It's the day after I did this exercise yesterday. Having watched the video of this WOD, I decided to do it using power snatches at 90 lbs.
5 mins 4 secs.
100 lb power snatches
Should have gone heavier but this has to be most worst lift of all form wise. Better safe than sorry.
30 45# Snatches. Some Squat, but mostly Power.
30 95# Squat Snatches.
Worked on form and ROM. A beautiful and fun lift.

CFWU-3. Pushups instead of HSPU 3rd. Superman. Burgener. DU.
10:22 as Rx'd - squat snatches.
Much easier whe I could come close to keeping legs straight at end of 1st pull. Also helped when I had feeling of writsts rolling or breaking. Hoping that meant bar staying in correct plane.
Keep an eye on something on floor a little bit in front of me to try to keep back perpendicular to floor.
