Reposting this question here.

Any opinions would be much appreciated.

Im competing in the Alaska sectional in March. They have already released their workouts.


Is their anything I should start supplementing this training with since I have the added benefit of knowing a month out what the events will be, or just continue on course with the programming?

Richard said...


From Miami,I follow your programming almost daily and they are off the charts awesome.

I need suggestions on how to deveop a better OHS, I just can't get my hips back and down while keeping active arms and shoulders.
Thank you.

C4. No GHD; Subbed unweighted Good Mornings w/ hands behind head.

Tough to keep the pace from the unbroken PC's through the first round of C's. Looking forward to the rest day.

Very tough wod. I only waited 45 min after breakfast to start this wod, huge mistake, felt pukie for all of C and then 20 min after wod, my bad.

Felt strong though

Tough transition fron last set of power cleans into part C with only 60 sec rest. also going from swings to back X tough. good wod.

I underestimate these sessions every time. Experimented with 40kg high swings before, and that didn't help. PC hard. Not used to that many reps. Also bar was a bit bent...

I felt better today. However, I was still getting light headed in between rounds.

Check out the video on the crossfit main page of Spencer Hendel cleaning 320lbs and OHS 295lbs. He finished in the top 16 at the games last year. I imagine he will be at the carolina qualifier (his dad owns Crossfit Charlotte). He will be tough to beat, hopefully Rory can be there to give him a run for the money.

Notes: May have underestimated amrap(-2), but my tempo was good today. PC form feels better probaly good have went 10#s heavier. Could have went heavier for C3., but would have made C4 even moe crappier! Fun workout.

C4. unbroken, unbroken, two brief pauses at rep 12 and 16

Deadlifts felt fast. Cycled through different grips throughout the sets. Ring push-ups felt better than ever, and I may have stopped a rep or two short of a true -2. PCs were very easy at 135, and very challenging at 150. All parts of C were just as taxing mentally as physically. Intended to go Games standard on swings, but only made it there for about 80%. Tough day, looking forward to tomorrow's rest.

Everything felt tough today

RPUs - these were tough with tempo and made the PCs difficult. Also hard to gauge -2 amrap...think I was pretty close

PCs: felt heavy and last set was ugly...pulling early

Going from Clap PUs to regular PUs was tough...followed by KBS and this all added up to my shoulders feeling fried...the BEs were a welcomed rest!

Kbs. the globo I go to only has a 45. I couldn't make it through twenty swings like I thought I could. Needed something slightly lighter.
Don't know how I managed to not write down C4, but I didn't. Oops!

Cleans and deads felt good but the rest of me is broken and I am looking for5ward to the rest day.

A.180lbs, felt light and fast, all done with clean grip

B1. 14, 12, 9
B2. All sets unbroken and touch and go style with 135lbs.

C1. 20, 15, 9
C2. 11, 10, 9
C3. 65lb dumbell, all unbroken, wish I had kb's or heavier db's
C4. unbroken

On the power cleans, I probably could have gone a little heavier; I felt strong today. But, the fact that I was able to cycle through them touch and go style so fast like that with 135 represents a big stepping stone for me

OPT said...

Richard, post a video of 3 reps full squat (OHS) at 3RM, then we can help.

Yelvi, whats your BWT?..the events are arguably for the bigger guy with good hip speed...1st event will tell all...someone who can clean heavy will row watts high and do well on the met con (ex...compare Rory to Brett Marshall on last workout for size sake- 6 CTB chin ups and 6 ring dips is so quick for both athletes relative to the time taken to do 500 m rows and 6 heavy thrusters...that the amount of gymnastics reps makes it negligible...and arguably not a balanced perspective of testing for all sizes)....

so..if you are quick in the hips, and an OK runner, you got it made...that is unless they score the clean and watts based on BWT...then it is anyones game...which is what I'd prefer...

A. 135# all sets
B1. 10 all sets
B2. 75# all sets. Went light to keep good form. Very sore.
On section C I had to stop in the second set of KBS because I experienced a ripping, tearing pain just inside and under my left shoulder blade in the back. This is as far as I got. Did complete back exts:
C1. 8, 8
C2. 10, 10
C3. 1.5 pd unbroken, 12reps then had to stop.
C4. 10/10, unbroken, unbroken. Found my rhythm in the end of 1st set.

Paul, I suspect Rory will b at the regionals.... and he's def a beast... things he's done recently

pc - 335
ohs - 315
bp - 355

total- 1005

he's out training 4 special forces at this time... he should have 2 mo to get ready 4 regionals and recover from his starvation and torture... but he's a beast and I'm sure will give anyone in that region (or world) a run 4 their money... he's made a lot of improvements over last yr and I 4 one can't wait 2 see him wreak havoc!...

A: 145 quick easy but guarding knee
B1: 12/10/8
B2: 95#s for all three sets felt good but not really explosive because of stupid knee
C3:unbroken but only used 16kgs since this was the activity that blew out my knee and was very worried concentrated on staying on heels and hip extension not usings legs/knee
C4:struggled with these today for some reason first set UB the rest were broken after 10 yuck!

Deadlifts felt great. Ring dips felt surprisingly strong. I was very happy with my Power Cleans. These have improved alot for me.
Clapping push-ups and push-ups were good, then the kb swings followed by the back extensions just kicked my ass.

I was nauseaus and shaky for a good 20 minutes Postwod.

Awsome workout!
Thanks once again OPT. I'm loving this!

A. 250lb for all sets

45 sec rest

C4. x20 all sets unbroken- good burn

Last time on this to make sure I am now doing the rest correct, you rest between A & B for 45 sec and between B2 & C1 for 1 min. Correct? Huge difference in the power output when performed this way.

Notes: I screwed up big time on C circuit. I had a brain fart when doing the wo I did it the way i wrote it instead. my bads

Pete said...

I could use some clarification on that as well. My understanding is that you are correct Joey. According to the FAQ's this is how it should be.

"We will use a typical multi-facet resistance training workout that would be prescribed on this Blog:

A1. High Bar Back Squat @ 30X0, 4-6 reps x 5 sets, rest 120 sec
A2. Chest to Bar Chin-ups, AMRAP x 5 sets, rest 120 sec
B1. KBS – 2 pd, 21 reps x 4 sets, rest 30 sec
B2. Ring Dips, 21 reps x 4 sets, rest 30 sec

In this workout you move through exercise A1 at the rx’d tempo, for the rx’d reps, you then rest for the rx’d amount of time (exactly) after the set is completed. Following the rest you do exercise A2 at the rx’d tempo, for the rx’d reps, you then rest for the rx’d amount of time after the set is completed. You then proceed back to A1. This alternation continues until the rx’d number of sets are completed for each exercise. For the above, this would mean 5 sets through A1/A2, with 120 seconds rest between each set.

Once you have completed the A1/A2 series, you move to B1. You start B1, 120 seconds after your last set of A2. This style of workout can go into C1/C2, D1/D2, or A1/A2/A3/A4/A5/A6. Nothing changes, you simply following the rx’d order of exercises, the rx’d tempo, the rx’d reps, the rx’d sets."

We were mistaken at our gym today, I took a 180 second break between B and C. So my numbers above are probably higher than they would have been had I only taken 60 secs.

B1: 21, 16, 12
B2:70kg, 74kg, 78kg (#171.6) unbroken and fast, no pauses. Should've gone heavier for all sets.

Didn't set up my PC weight before hand; so that took 2-3 min. I have to keep in mind the RXd time between rounds from now on.

C1: 14; 10; 8
C2: 8; 10; 8
C3: 70# unbroken, last set was tough.
C4: unbroken, last set burned!

My rest was probably more like 4 seconds between the first and second round of pushups. I was too eager!

Fun WOD! Might do some running later.

A1: 120
B2: 90-90(8)-85 went down to 85 second set because I waited too long at bottom of 9th and 10th rep in second set, wanted touch and go :)
C1:12-10-10 made sure chest touched ground
C2: 10-8-8 again, chest right to ground
C3: 24kg-24kg-20kg went down last set to keep good form

Today was a very hard day for me. My mind was somewhere else but I chose to train and tried my best to focus and made it through. I am glad I did it, I know I learned a lot :)

C3.20kg, all unbroken

Think I could have done a better job gauging the AMRAP (-2). May have been too conservative.

B1. 18/16/15 - Not rx'd - tempo was off, couldn't slow the eccentric for some reason today
B2. 135/155/165
C1. 13/13/13
C2. 12/15/11
C3. 2 pood all unbroken
C4. All broken (10-10, 12-8, 11-9)

Notes: Deads have been feeling really good the past month. Fast and light today. PCs were good, with the last two reps of 2nd and 3rd sets being really hard. Back Extensions were terrible...fried posterior chain and CNS. Great 2 days coach.

everything felt good until the C section. happy with the unbroken power cleans. the push ups really sucked the life out of the kb swings.

Thanks Chris!

ken c said...


that's how i've always read how the rest times should be from the faq. it's how i do it. makes it pretty tough as the rest periods get shorter at the end.

Thanks for bringing that point up!

Mike Molloy said...


A: Fast and easy (225#)

B1: 13-12-10
B2: 135-145-155

C1: 13-15-12
C2: 11-10-10
C3: 1.5 pood
C4:Unbroken but brutal

Notes: Was able to get this in done at CF Bethesda on my trip through D.C.

Bad News: Had to drop the weight on the KB swing to work on getting the bell straight over head ala games standards.

Good News: Power Cleans felt much easier than a year ago at my regional qualifier.

Best News: I normally work out in an environment where dropping from overhead isn't an option, so I took the opportunity today to work on my Split Jerk. Hit a 20# PR with a 225#... which was nice.

C4. 20; all unbroken

PWO: Shake (24gP: Jarrow, 2 scoops Refuel), 8g BCAA-G, 5g Creatine
60 min later: 2 scrambled eggs, chicken sausage, apple, almond butter

A. These all felt fast and smooth
B1. Got really deep. Rings were about 4 inches off the floor and tried to get my chin/nose to the floor at the bottom on each one. Didn't want my chest resting on the deck though, so planked that out.
B2. I sold myself short here and should have gone higher. I would likely have been better served starting at 150 and jumping in increments of 10.
C1. Was hard to judge the (-2) for these, so I went to failure on speed. Once the reps slowed, I did one more and called it.
C2. Same as C1.
C3. Last round was a little tough, but manageable.
C4. Back was starting to sing in the last round.

I didnt have rings so did push ups on round db that moved side to side, not the same effect, but not a bad sub. My grip failed on 3rd set of cleans, definitely a weakness. Tough wod.

Deadlifts felt great! Really happy with how fast and strong they were. Good tempo on ring push ups. First 155 set of PC were more muscle cleans and fast. Moved to 165 and had to have a small jump but around 7-10 took 2 second break at top but still touch and go. Part C was tough but good.

Felt a little off yesterday and misjudged today. Went too light on power clean, too cautious on push-ups and thought the 2 pood was going to be enough but should have gone up to OPT for the 2.5 pood. Overall, was just a bit 'light'

Went a little conservative on the PC's. I should have started where I ended and went up from there. Lost focus on the last round of KB swings. I think that the starting and stopping was harder then doing it straight through would have been. All the push ups got really hard fast. Lower back was really tight for about an hour after.

I hit my 35 straight through on DUs on my second try today during warm-up. I'm getting there. Just looking for some consistancy. Probably going to give it a break for a while now though and work on another weakness during my warm-up/cool-down.

A: Seemed Easy. Ran out of weight for Heavy 1 @ 400. Could have gone heavier, so 225 was a guess.
B: Tried to emphasize second pull. I have a tendency to rely on a shrug for light cleans, fear that is robbing power for heavier pulls.
C: straight forward. Subbed reverse hyper on the truck tailgate instead of swiss ball BE.

did it yesterday but forgot to post sorry coach. word is liphost

Back again after a full week of rest/active rest. Been slow posting but I will assume it is best to post under the day I did the workout.

Did the folowing workout to get back in the flow:

_Front squat:
worked up to 100kg x3. wich is a 1RM PR.
Happy bout this. Getting stronger. Almost didn't make the last rep. Perhaps stupid to start this heavy but i was to psyched.

_3 rounds:
12 swings @ 24kg
12 K2E
21 DU
easy pace.
