..Hi James....back t squar one with Snatch ...used 65lbs....needs lots of work

dl's = 225...no problems
presses = 115, 135, 135(fail on fifth) 125, 125


Katrina Burton said...

A.) 75#-85#-90#
B.) 125#
C.) 70#

Happy with my work today! Could have went heavier on A, but no idea about power snatch numbers so I guessed. Could have called the 75# a warm up and done one more, but decided to end it there and go for it next time now that I know.

Forgot to ask Chad before I left the gym, but can anyone tell me about how much % of your 1RM press should you be lifting for multiple reps?

Hixy said...

Katrina, AFAIK 85 % of your 1RM is the 5-6 rep range.

Chad Action Brandt said...

A.) 115#/135/145
B.) 235#
C.) 5 X 115#

Very happy with today's efforts.
When I Power Snatched that 145#, it when up so fast I nearly fell over backwards. My iRM snatch is 155#!!
Up goes the 1RM Snatch baby!
I put the video on my Action Conditioning blog spot site.

A - 76/86/86/91/91...didn't mean to do 5 sets, but it is something I need extra work. Rtying to focus on receiving the weight at the bottom, as oppose to half way with more load.
B - 232# x 8, full acceleration on each rep. 2 sec between reps.
C - 121/126/128.5/131x2x4rep

Sweeney said...

A: 65/75/95
B: 209
C: 88/98/110/116/121

Feels good to be back at it.

CDunkin said...

A: 135/140/145/150/155 (failed on 3rd rep ohs at 155, so c&j'd back up and finished last 2)
B: 315 (65% 1rm)
C: 135/140/145/150/155

Really liked this wod. was very surprised to have the energy to push the weights up. After yesterday's two I was not expecting the sustained energy. OHS need improvement. I really like the heavy dl's and couldn't help increasing the weight. I would like to hear more about the acceleration MF mentioned. I appreciate the dictated rests....keeps things moving, and keeps me focused.

Ryan G. said...

A. 85/95/105, funny thing here is I thought there were 5 sets but my shoulders hurt so bad I had to stop.

B. 235# as rx'd

C. I chose to Bench press as over head lifts are officially off limits untill my shoulders cool off. 135/145/155/165/175

Steve said...

A - 95, 120, 135
B - 200
c - 115, 125, 135, 140, 145

CDunkin said...

Just realized my goof on part A as well. It's true what they say about exercising; it does not help short-term memory (ref: "Brain Rules", by John Medina, www.brainrules.net). Maybe that is why CrossFit is successful.

Brent Maier said...

A. 50/60/65kg (143#)
B. 131kg (289#) 65% of 445#
C. 40/45/50/55/65kg (143#)

A) Breathing while maintaining solid core.
B) Upped my percent to 65%. This felt light after last weekends #1 WOD.
C) That last rep was pretty tight. Focussed on not overarching back and locking out.

James, take a look at my C weight progression. You specify keeping loads high throughout the entire set on occasion. When not specified, should we start each set heavier which may lower our ending weight or progress like I did today hoping to end at a heavier weight?

Action, doesn't look like you have that video up yet. Remind us again when you get it posted.

OPT said...

brent, that is right, unless i indicate it, make only the last set the toughest one...especially if it is at the end of the wod like the press was...your CNS will not have (should not) have enough gusto to bust out a true 5RM 5 times at this point...
