Comment #5 - Posted by: EC at November 16, 2011 5:28 PM

how funny! when the thrusters came up it reminded me of the last thruster wod for the triple and how its been a while.then i recalled how its been the same time since snatch balance was even mentioned-low and behold here she is.considering i had just started xfit at the time im psyched to see if ive improved.
I topped out my triple thruster attempt with a 225 single and now i got 250 2 days ago.itll be interesting!

I really enjoyed the interview with MSG Ed. Good honest guy. Also, the pic today is HAWT!

Comment #18 - Posted by: Matty at November 16, 2011 8:28 PM

@14 J.W.C

In a push jerk you dip down and then stand up quickly to propell the bar upwards, and then you drop under the bar.

In a snatch balance you just dip a little bit and nudge the bar up before dropping under. It can be a bit difficult to get under quickly enough without doing the little "stomp", but if you are able just drop under without it. But the bar is really meant to not move upwards before you catch it.

Hope that helps. Look at it again and you'll see the difference. I think there are a few videos (in the videos archive section on this site) with coach Mike Burgener and his daughter (that I just now forgot the name of) where they show a few variations of snatch balance exercises.

Comment #19 - Posted by: sven at November 16, 2011 8:42 PM

Had some shoulder issues, and technique missed the dip. 75lbs was max times multiple reps. Watch video next time.

Comment #22 - Posted by: crissy at November 16, 2011 10:44 PM

oh, and j.w.c., it's different from a push jerk in that you don't squat as much when you do one. it's just a slight bend of the knees. here, you go into a full squat. it's also different from a thruster, because, with a thruster, you don't have that "jerk" movement. it's more like a push press but with a squat. :)

Comment #24 - Posted by: cosmo at November 17, 2011 4:17 AM

J.W.C. I think the snatch balance differs from the push jerk in your catch height and hand positioning. On the PJ your hands are about should width apart, but in the SB they should be much further apart like in the snatch. In the PJ after your dip, drive and small hop you catch the weight in a quarter squat, but in the SB you get all the way down to legs parallel/hip crease.

Go Maya and Brandy!
I'm fairly new to Crossfit but the strength gains I've seen and all this new muscle is great! Along with it comes the confidence, strength, and stamina to get things done. I've never felt so empowered. Thank you Crossfit for showing this lady that badass isn't just for boys!

Comment #28 - Posted by: AG at November 17, 2011 6:13 AM

I've been following this site for about two weeks. I love the hard work and change of pace (my legs are sore as h**l!!) CrossFit seems like an awesome arm and leg workout, but I'm concerned about losing some of my core strength. I usually follow up the WOD with some crunches or something. Anyone else do this? How do you get an ab workout while sticking to the posted workouts?

Comment #31 - Posted by: JennS at November 17, 2011 6:52 AM

#25 - Andrew
Trust me, you aren't going to lose your core strength. Most of these movements are highly core intensive. My 2nd workout when I started was Tabata Fight Gone Bad. My core was blasted, and I couldn't walk straight for a week. You shouldn't have to worry about it too much.

A lot of people do the "Official Crossfit Warmup" which includes about 3 x 15 sit-ups. If your core isn't hurting now, it will after your legs and arms catch up.

At least that's what I think.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Topher at November 17, 2011 6:53 AM

Andrew, CrossFit is all about power that is generated from the core. Once you really start getting these motions, I think you will realize just how core intensive these workouts are.

205 (was basically a jerk with a hesitated full ohs, was using steel plates in globo gym)

I would have prob gone all the way up to 225 of I ha rubber plates and could throw it around. Being my first time I was satisfied with 205.

Andrew, core isn't "abs". Its the entire trunk. These workouts will be far beyond anything else you will do for your core. Keep working!

Comment #36 - Posted by: Andrew H at November 17, 2011 7:46 AM

Andrew, give it your all for atleast 2 solid months (without extra crunch crap) and then come back an tell us about your core strength.

I can't seem to get the snatch should a solid overhead squat be perfected before moving to the snatch?

Comment #39 - Posted by: Brad at November 17, 2011 8:02 AM

Andrew, I have to agree with the others, almost everything we do starts with core strength including today's work. In order to stabilize anything overhead, the mid-line stability must be there. But if you do want some extra core work find a GHD machine or do some hollow outs or hollow rocks. Here's a decent video of the hollow rock. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxMtbEQFpnw

KEEP IT UP MARINE!

Comment #41 - Posted by: dan lau at November 17, 2011 8:20 AM

Andrew,

Your abs are a small part of your core. The part of your core that is able to safely handle large loads is the group of muscles called the posterior chain (hamstrings, gluets, & lower & upper back muscles). These movements, performed properly, strengthen these muscles improving strength, power, agility, balance, etc.. The abs will definitely come along for the ride, but strengthening the posterior is by far a greater value.

I'll never forget what TJ from TJ's Gym said while I was visiting his Marin County box, "we are posterior animals obsessed with the anterior". Crossfit gets it right.

W/U: 3 rnds of erg row, 10 cal; DU, 20x; bar hang, 30 sec. BP, 3x5 at 135-155-170 (deload).

As Rx: 45-65-85-105-125-135-x.

C/D: foam roll.

Off 1RM PR at 135 by 40#. These were actually my warm-up sets. Upon catching 135 behind the neck, I felt a disc in my lower cervical or upper thoracic spine slip out. Feels like it's wedged between the vertebrae and poking out to the right. I'm posting this several hours after and it's still painful. Hoping to manipulate it back into place somehow. Ugh!

Michael,

Since in new to crossfit and I never done most of the power lifts, is it better for me to start for scratch, and do low weight till I build the strength???

Andrew,

You have come to the right place. To the left side of the page you'll see a link, "exercises & demos". Here you'll get a good idea about how to safely perform the oly & power lifts and get a better understanding of what Crossfit is all about.

Please don't overdo it on the loads until you have the technique down. That's an injury waiting to happen. If your new to the lifts you'll still get a good workout starting with lighter loads, focusing on proper body mechanics. If you can, look into a local Crossfit box to get some hands on training. It will go a long way. If that's not an option for you, some other great resources are the Crossfit discussion board and the Crossfit Journal, a $25 subscription, but worth every penny. Another idea, video yourself performing the lifts and compare it to the proper techniques in the exercise & demo section.

Happy CFing

Comment #49 - Posted by: Michael at November 17, 2011 9:02 AM

Andrew,

One more thing, you probably already know this, but NEVER underestimate the importance of getting a good warm up before a workout and stretch afterward. It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt :)

Oi! These overhead lifts make me miserable!

I'm hoping I'll learn to love them one day.
One can hope!

I think my max 'real' snatch balance was 65lbs.
After that, 70 & 75lbs were really overhead squats.

On the plus side, I got in 2 sets/10 reps each of fairly decent kipping pull-ups. They felt easy!

I'm not sure if I should increase reps or sets as I try to strengthen my pull-ups. Reps, I guess. Nice goal, to pull unbroken for 15 or more......

Comment #58 - Posted by: TRN III at November 17, 2011 11:05 AM

Maya = pure inspiration. Enviable technique and excitement at the end!

Core / posterior = what they said. Overhead Oly lifting, which I suck at & don't have the functional shoulders for right now, has to be the best balance - core - posterior - strength tester around...

I also toss in, once or twice a week as part of warmup, these:

- 500m row (posture, core/anterior shins to head, posterior all, arms, oxygen, you name it)

- KBS 1 pood for speed/control, either solo or as part of 21-15-9 KBS + dips timed.

- Tabata L-sit progressions (hanging from leg-raise stand...R1 = knees to chest for 20 secs, 10 sec rest, R2 = left leg extended 20 sec, 10 rest, R3 = right leg extended 20, 10 rest, R4 = both legs extended (L-sit) 20 sec, 10 sec rest -- rinse and repeat to total 8 rounds. If your legs don't droop in R8, add another 4 rounds...)

...and as of last night, am now going to add at least once a week to warmups Turkish Get Ups, probably 25-35# for 10 on each side. Man does that work a lot of body systems...

As the weight got higher, the squats were less deep, but I was getting under the weight instead of pressing it, which is an improvement over last time. 155 and up was kinda pressy..

Was a cheap PR since its the first time I've ever done these. Its also the first time I've ever tried OHS'ing more than 135, so really happy with this.

Did this last night but just getting around to posting. First time doing the snatch balance, so overall felt pretty good. In hindsight, I probably could have went a little heavier.

reluctant about pushing the weights--still have some pain in lower back from the wall balls/squat snatches a couple weeks ago--must be some injury vs. DOMS, but is slowly healing

115lb was best i could do with decent form--falling forward, not getting deep, not confident on lift, etc. hate to do a million reps with a pvc, but looks like that's what i need.

Some fails at lighter weights for some reason. Probably inadequate warm-up. 2nd try on 220 almost had it.

Afterward, set OHS PR of 225.

I think i made a mistake last time and did OH squats or something. Didn't really get all the way down for the 60's. Next time don't be afraid of dropping the bar. 55's were ok.
