I consider Crossfit something that is big in my life. I've been at it for about 2 years hard. I'm coming on my 2 year of my biology major and have to come up with a big biology project. I would really like to involve crossfit in the project but no ideas.

Any comments or advice would be great

I love the yard Brent. I want to do the same but with a roof kind of like a WOD pavilion.

Cuttingly hilarious article. Soooo true. As for MY son, all that underachiever wants to do is fly attack helos for the Marine Corps. Sigh. Oh well. I warned his mom that he needed more organic soy milk, tofu snackies, Barney the Dinosaur and sitar music as a baby. But would she listen???

OOOO-RAH! SEMPER FI!

Comment #17 - Posted by: sarge712 at September 28, 2011 9:44 PM

Did this tonight before doing the WOD from yesterday...
196lb Snatch... not happy with it tho...
So to get more confident w weight overhead I then did this rep scheme w/
OverHead Squats - 236lbs
Then a mod'd version of yesterdays chipper... good workout! DRENCHED!!!

Nice job on all the snatches, but I have to give a shout out to the EAST COAST CREW!

Awesome work on the snatches Pat. Seriously that was a sight to behold....242 lbs!?! Damn.

As for CF HQ....lame article, must be an off-day. That's ok, we all have them...

Comment #20 - Posted by: Chris at September 29, 2011 12:17 AM

When it states "Snatch". Is it the same as a "Jerk" in the sense that you can choose b/t a regular snatch and a split snatch???

Comment #21 - Posted by: Stephenson at September 29, 2011 3:21 AM

LOVE the Flux Pavillion in Mr Barber's vid. Dub-Step is definitely my go to music for WOD's. Fills my heart with joy to see it displayed on mainsite!

Dear Pukie,

I work out in a gym at a place of employment that is fairly large but houses some folks you might expect to Crossfit. Yesterday I noticed a sheet of paper listing a WOD. People work out a different times of day, so it's anyone's guess who left their WOD.

Would it be inappropriate to leave a stack of old Crossfit Journals from the mid-2000s on the desk next to the WOD list? Would that be presumptuous of anything? What is the etiquette here?

Sincerely,
Over-thinking in Pa.

Still working towards a BW snatch; almost there.

Also got my first P-bar planches today thanks to yesterday's video. Knew I had the strength but didn't have the technique; something clicked for me watching Dusty and David demonstrate and cue it. Great video.

Thursday 110929

Snatch 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps
75lbs
95lbs
115lbs
125lbs
135lbs
145lbs f,f,f,f,f,f got it on the 7th try
150lbs(68k) f, got it

That is right I kept hitting 145 which was my old pr, I was not going to not get it. I knew it was a technique. I just kept at it.

Same for the 150lbs(68k) but it ony took two trys. I ran out of time at that point, I had a bigger plan of starting my 7 reps at my max and then drop a little weight and hit heavy singles for the other 7 reps, but I ran out of time.

last time
maxed at 135lbs and stopped.

I ran out of time. We were working on Bradys form most of the time. He has bad trouble with snach and OHSs and it took all of lunch, I was up to 125lbs when lunch was over, so I slaped on 20 lbs and hit a quick single to make myself feel good.

My current 1 rep is 145lbs.

Comment #54 - Posted by: Nik Nichols 40yo 5'6'' 167lbs at September 29, 2011 11:09 AM

135 - 155; drilling

I'm surrendering. As a Joe Mills coached weightlifter who competed in the 80's, I'm slowly giving myself over to Burgener's technique. It's quite the opposite from 'throw your hips and go,' an emphasis on the jump down as opposed to the extension.

It just take a while, even when you want to change.

I am working on my squat snatches. I am still finding it hard to focus on a million things for a movement that lasts for about a second. I am still catching the bar a big high and drifting down into the squat.... practice.. practice.

75-75-80-80 (f) -80-85-85-90(pb)

90 is a PB for the squat snatches ... so my focus is paying off. I'm hoping to use those 25lb bumpers soon.

PR is 185. Just not catching it well today. Bar was moving at a great speed and shoulder felt pretty good. It's funny how when I weighed 175, I would have been pleased with today. Not now when I'm heavier.

Some ugly looking snatching going in the gym today. None of us really knows what we are doing. Watching the videos and reading the literature. But so far mainly ugly little variations on clean and press with a quarter squat thrown in somewhere in the middle.

Comment #71 - Posted by: jomo m/47/175/6' at September 29, 2011 2:48 PM

Hey all, I'm new to crossfit and I was wondering if there is an alternate to the snatch. For reasons long and largely irrelevant I can't really squat while holding weight over my head. Tried it today with just a bar, no weight and almost fell. I tried some adjustments to my stance too and just couldn't get there, so I figured it might be best not to load up the bar.

Anyway, if someone has an alternative I'd love to hear about it.

Rather disappointing snatch day. As Kevin C. said, just couldn't find that groove and it happened to me as well today. Had enough strength to get the lifts, just not enough practice with the snatch lately.

40M/5'10"/172#

W/U: jump rope, 100 single-unders + 50 double-unders; Burgener warm-up; erg row, 10 cal; snatch, 16x1 at 45-45-45-55-55-55-65-65-65-75-85-85-85-95-95-95.

As Rx: 105-115-125-135-145-155-165(f).

C/D: skipped.

Off 1RM PR at 155 by 10#. 11th time doing this WOD. The snatch is a huge goat of mine, so I always appreciate an opportunity to work on it. Unfortunately, I only practice it when it comes-up in a WOD. Took my time tonight and used the video camera to really dial in my form. Still nursing a sprained low back, so I skipped the DLs I had planned on doing for a C/D.

First time doing snatch for max weight, so I took it easy and really focused on form. I even video taped myself with my phone so I could make sure I was doing it correctly!

65-75-75-85-95-95-105

Afterwards, did some light snatch work to continue to work on form. This was my first time ever snatching over 100lbs, although I think the form was a little weak!

Comment #85 - Posted by: Saam at September 29, 2011 5:36 PM

reached 145, matched PR. Several fails on 135 tweaking form, getting warmed up.
Then ran to/around roosevelt island and back
Swam 800m later

Didn't do this one today. I'm not very experienced in the snatch. So I did the Burgener warm up about 5 times and then did some OHS to work on that as well.

I'm a lousy snatcher. Going back to high school sports in the 80s, I very rarely did deep squats (they were considered bad for the knees) until I started CF 7 months ago; and I NEVER did snatches. Since I still have a hard time with deep squats, I also have a hard time getting under a heavy snatch. So, consequently, my snatches are 'power', or some hybrid "tweener". Figured I'd start with 95 and see what happened. Result?

95-good/105-good/115-OK/125-OK (tied PR)/135-F/135-OK (new PR)/140-F

The WOD Demo videos helped--especially the slo-mo...gave me some good pointers on form.

I guess I'm OK with that...for now.

All PRs for full squat snatch.

After three years of Crossfit, at the age of 40, I can now do things that I've never done before. Before Crossfit, snatch had never been a part of any workout I had done. Thank you Coach Glassman, Coach B, and thank you Jon for introducing me to this fitness. I am more fit than at any other time in my life and I love it!
