Those Northeast Boys are BEASTLY! Nice job Dave, James, and Rob (and Jason too..west coast BEAST).

Comment #2 - Posted by: Kim Malz~Fit Mom in CT of CrossFit Persevere (F39/130/5'2") at September 1, 2010 5:10 PM

Jason and I get the award for smoothest looking split jerk minus the pressout and footwork.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Dave Lipson at September 1, 2010 5:13 PM

Hey what do you do if you don't have enough ceiling clearance for the split jerks?

Comment #4 - Posted by: Jerad at September 1, 2010 5:24 PM

Though, Jason & Dave may be strong, James Hobart's split jerk is the only one that would get 3 white lights in competition.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Allan at September 1, 2010 5:25 PM

Look at that lumbar curve....

Comment #6 - Posted by: Bob at September 1, 2010 5:31 PM

"Aligning the hips, shoulders and barbell over the base of support (left image) is stronger than with exaggerated lumbar extension (right image)."

True..But from where I sit the exaggerated lumbar extension in the (right image) is much more photogenic.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Cronk at September 1, 2010 5:32 PM

Not to take anything away from Orlando because the guys a beast, but that looked more like a squat clean / Thruster more than a C&J, which is what Grace is right?. Am I wrong?

Comment #8 - Posted by: Eric at September 1, 2010 5:41 PM

#8. . . agreed, but what he did was harder than jerking the bar, wasn't it?

Comment #9 - Posted by: Tom at September 1, 2010 5:46 PM

#9, Absolutely it was, but were those "jerks" or thrusters...I'm just pointing out that if the WOD calls for jerks it should be jerks, if you can't jerk the weight then reduce and complete the movement Rx'd. Otherwise call it "30 squat clean thrusters for time".

Comment #10 - Posted by: Eric at September 1, 2010 5:50 PM

If I had to take wild guess, I'd say Rob O. is fully capable of jerking.

As Tom said, its harder to hit the thruster rather than the jerk anyway.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Shane Jensen (M/22/5'11"/182) at September 1, 2010 5:53 PM

Few thoughts...

@#4: Just bash holes in the ceiling. Or try to take it outside if possible.

@DaveLIPSON: Dood you don't have to use so many 10lb plates when you lift...you know...these things called 45s?

Comment #12 - Posted by: James H. at September 1, 2010 5:58 PM

I have yet to see the Orlando video but every time I see Grace it's Power clean and jerk. But when they added the squat at the games one year (I think the year Khalipa won) I believe people were doing squat clean into a thruster. Either way that is rediculous before I even know how fast he did it.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Paul at September 1, 2010 6:01 PM

So the position on the left is stronger. But what is the reason for that?

Comment #14 - Posted by: Mehdi at September 1, 2010 6:08 PM

I dunno, it's frustrating to see the 30 minute Burgener video discussing the CF/USAW competition yesterday in the journal and its in-depth descriptions of good and failed lifts and then have these videos of "Crossfit's Top Dawgs" doing what is supposed to be a split jerk and having it look like a spazzed-out jumping-split-push-press w/ a tap dance chaser. Maybe that's the "Hybrid" in Hybrid Athletics? Love to see some CFer's with solid technique throwing some weights up for the noobs to emulate. Respect to the weights going up but post it on HQ if it's done right.

Comment #15 - Posted by: asuderelict at September 1, 2010 6:09 PM

Props to J-Ho. Great lifts man.

Comment #16 - Posted by: asuderelict at September 1, 2010 6:13 PM

Grace is typically performed as ground to overhead anyhow for 30 reps. That's for as long as I can remember although I think it is often done as C&J.

Rob, that was awesome!

Comment #17 - Posted by: Lol Mettam at September 1, 2010 6:23 PM

CF ATL - nice!
Rob you are a beast. That was just sick!

Comment #19 - Posted by: AllisonNYC at September 1, 2010 6:33 PM

Hobart has some legit lifts. Nice work bro. If there is any lifter to emulate, it is him. The jerk should be completed without a press finish.

Comment #20 - Posted by: Adam S. (M/24/5'6"/180) at September 1, 2010 6:34 PM

I agree with the images posted in the picture today but on the left one her ear is not showing. So is the standard the less stable lift?

Comment #21 - Posted by: Dan at September 1, 2010 6:35 PM

Where do I find fish oil in higher doses? I'd like to eventually up how much I'm taking a day, but I can only find it in at MOST 1g doses. I'd have to be taking quite a few of those a day. Is there nothing higher?

Comment #22 - Posted by: SeanV at September 1, 2010 6:36 PM

Hobart and Lipson inspire me daily. Thanks, boys.

Comment #23 - Posted by: rob orlando at September 1, 2010 6:36 PM

I always thought these heavy weight days were meant to get 7 heavy reps in, not 5-6 warmup reps at lighter weight and then a max. I try to keep all the weights within 20# from start to finish, after several warmup reps. I'm usually close to a PR, but too fried to really have achieved it. What do others think?? Thanks.

Rob O. takes a ton of grief on this board. I give him a lot of credit for his patience and humility. I wish my form looked that good!
Keep sending the tapes Rob.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Dan at September 1, 2010 6:45 PM

Got stumped at the box today with this question:

On a box jump, "Why do I have to open/extend the hips fully after I land on the box?"

Anyone got a good answer for that?

Comment #27 - Posted by: B. Rhaly at September 1, 2010 6:45 PM

CRamsey -- I'm with you on the heavy weight days. Sets across wind up with a lot more volume than stair stepping to a max.

Comment #28 - Posted by: kitch m/41/198 at September 1, 2010 6:52 PM

Great lifts by everyone! Wow, some of those are good dead lift numbers!

I'm very happy to see that pic of the proper overhead position posted for the world to see. That is going to help out a lot of Crossfitters. Very cool.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Pat Sherwood at September 1, 2010 6:53 PM

James and Rob great work. Jimmy you move as smooth as butter. Rob I admire that you have the balls to try things that other athletes would cower at. Semantics aside, that was awesome. Pretty sure our splits would not count at the oly competition. For me, technique starts to break down as they weights get higher, but that is the battle most of us are fighting.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Dave Lipson at September 1, 2010 7:38 PM

The people knocking Rob O cannot be serious. The man is a monster. That was inspiring.

I would like to see KING KONG ON STEROIDs, If anyone attemp it please, please, please record your self.

While Wearing a 20 Pound Vest

3 Rounds of:

1 x 615 pounds Deadlift
2 x Muscle ups
3 x 315 pounds Squat clean
4 x Ring Hand stand Push ups,

I just made that up, :) I wonder if Lipson, Rob or some of the strong elite crossfiters would be able to complete that. Rob just took Grace to another Level with 225 LB Grace, I wish I could clean that much weight atleast once. That was insane.

Comment #42 - Posted by: Steve at September 1, 2010 8:28 PM

How much time are you resting between reps?

Comment #43 - Posted by: Mike at September 1, 2010 9:15 PM

I don't know that I agree that the position on the left is the stronger one. They are only subtly different, but I would argue that the picture on the right has a slightly better bar - scapulae - midfoot alignment. The pic on the left has the bar over the middle of the shoulder joint, which is probably not quite right. Most Oly lifters when they stand up with a heavy weight look more like the photo on the right.

Comment #44 - Posted by: TomC at September 1, 2010 10:10 PM

Further, I would argue that putting the head through more, as shown on the right would allow the traps to shrug a little more and provide more support.

Comment #45 - Posted by: TomC at September 1, 2010 10:24 PM

at the games and the competitions building up to the games we were always were told in the background that the standard for overhead movements like this involved a portion of the ears showing... also a little confused. i think if her head was through a little bit it wouldn't have bothered me so much. dave, rob, hobart - keep being BA's!

Comment #46 - Posted by: SarahL at September 1, 2010 10:49 PM

typo above: we were always told in the background*** (and by background meaning - judges, competitors, volunteers)

Comment #47 - Posted by: SarahL at September 1, 2010 10:50 PM

Rob O. U are a BEAST!!! to do do that much weight at full squat and to take it right overhead without dipping again blew my mind. Great work

Comment #48 - Posted by: StevieB at September 1, 2010 11:27 PM

Rob O. isn't actually human. He's clearly 100% beast.

Comment #50 - Posted by: JohnB at September 2, 2010 12:55 AM

Rob O.- That was truly an inspring Grace. 225?! And then to make it a full-squat clean. Yikes.

James - Very good looking split, brother. Legit and competition clean on all of them. Well, except for the "pump fake".

Rob,

Truly incredible performance. For those of you hating on Rob for not "jerking" the weight. Grace is merely a name. The video title could easily have been "Rob O. 30 ground to overhead @ 225#" and most people would have said it was a Grace. Stop nit picking.

Second time ever doing these and I'm pretty certain the 175# are also PR's before the 180. I could use some work on form getting under the bar better. A set of bumper plates at the gym would be nice too. Overall I guess not as bad as I thought.

Comment #110 - Posted by: mikey mic at September 2, 2010 11:13 AM

First off, Hobart that was an amazing series of lifts, great form and lots of control. Something to work towards for all of us.

I have one quick question and one comment. When I am doing an oly lifting wod like this I typically do the normal CF warmup (pullups, OHS, pushups, situps, back extension and dips) and maybe some box jumps or something to feel a bit explosive. Then I will practice whatever the movement is with moderate weight and then dive in. When warming up with split jerks do you guys switch legs at all? I am definitely more comfortable going one way that the other, just like with swinging a golf club, baseball bat or riding a skateboard. Would it make sense from a general fitness standpoint to do so, if nothing else than to work on balance on both sides? When I am actually going heavy I definitely do one split one way as that is the way I am most confident. Just curious as to others thoughts.

In thinking about and planning this workout, which I will be doing tomorrow, I started looking around YouTube at various clean and jerk competitions. I was surprised to see that at the 2009 world weightlifting championships there were still a fair number of athletes, especially in the 77 Kg class, using a traditional "squat" jerk rather than a split jerk. I can't imagine how it would be more powerful, stable, etc., to lift this way. Thoughts, comments?

Tomorrow my goal is to have more confidence and not be scared about getting under the bar. I find that my fear of being under a lot of weight often overcomes my physical strength. I know how to bail, I just need to get under there...

155-165-175-185. Needed a huge press at the end to get 185, figured that was it for the day.

Buy in: Bench press 5-5-5+ 150-170-190(7); dead lift 5-5-5+ 315-355-395(5) =5RM.

Cash out: strict pullups neck to bar, 3 rounds max reps 16-7-5; 1-arm kb snatches, 1 pood, each arm 20-15-10-5.

I could have gone heavier on the jerks, and could have cleaned a few more pounds, but getting the bar back down to the ground solo was getting SKETCHY at 210. No squat rack and no bumper plates.

I had to set these up the old fashioned way, by cleaning the weight. That 210 was a failure in the clean, not the jerk. I probably gave away a few pounds by not being able to pop these off a rack, but these were good honest weights for some decent technical training.

75 and 85 pounds for various reps, for the memsahib.

135,135,155 (form not so good), 155 (poor form), scaled back to 135 to maintain form, 135, 135

tried to figure out the movement, got better near the end. need to commit to get under the weight, because not putting up weight that's much heavier than shoulder press.

Split Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps

As rx'd: 65-85-115-125-135F-135F-135PR

NOTES
- New to oly lifting so learning as I go (hence the laughably low weights)
- Warm-up consisted of double-under practice on my new Again Faster Revolution rope...I must say, the rope makes a huge difference! Finally started to string some together!

I was very happy to go above body weight on these!

Got a bit wobbly by 154 (PR) and there were people wandering around the gym not paying attention to what was going on around them. One guy started doing arm curls about 18" behind me so I didn't feel safe pushing it incase I needed to drop the bar. Reduced the weight and did more reps instead.

So what the hell is the standard so I can teach my athletes the proper technique!!! Has it changed for sure!! Sitting with my coaches now and a few just returned from L1 cert. Ears must show is what was taught!!! If it is and official change push it out as that! Affiliates should be the first to know this not my effing athletes on a Saturday morning for a Leader Board WOD! I dont want to hear check the HQ site when I make a correction with someone that just started CrossFitting yesterday!!!

Don't know how correct this is...

First the human body completely straight has no power, it can only reset. Seriously try to jump or create any active movement straight.

Second lifted with professional strength coaches for a good portion of my life and never heard that.

Third, look at a body in a hand stand pushup (which is essentially this... it isn't straight.)

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Better than last time (when I was on a restart), but still not up to my PR (135). Form on back leg is a little wobbly, but we'll get it next time.
