Steve Smith said...

Coach, do you want the average watts from each 15 second effort, or from the entire row?

Soren said...

A: at home so no bench, so was a bit creative. Set up the rings, elevated my feet, ask the 55kg wife to jump on my back, and that was hard!

B: 25kg x 3 x 4
C: 5 sets: 30UB D/U, 10 UB Power clean at 60, 1 min rest


Martin Altemark said...

Still one day behind:

1. 95kg (100kg f)
2. 2x170kg (180kg f)

No HSPUs since we have team-training tonight where those will be done.

Next saturday is the Swedish championships in CrossFit and we are entering with a OPT/Big dawg-fueled team consisting of me, Bear, my wife Linda and another girl from our affiliate. Will be fun!

Very happy with the bench press considering the tempo and the state of my triceps after this week. Average watts recorded after the last 15 second interval. Topped out at ~600 in round 2, but most rounds were about 550-560. Damper at 7.

Please cud some explain wot the 30x0 and 21x0 means in the below:

Bench Press @ 30X0; 3,2,1; rest 3 min
B. Mixed Grip Chin Ups @ 21X0; 2-3 x 4; rest 3 min

Thx in advance

OPT said...

steve, avg watts for all 6 efforts for 15 sec
gc, the faq on the front page will explain it in more detail..

Joel B. said...

A. 175X3; 190X2; 205X1
B. 55.5X3; 65.5X3; 70X2; 70X2
C. 1. 514; 2. 522; 3. 512; 4. 536; 5. 535; 6. 548

last set was pretty much a 1rm no spotter on BP; alternated the supinated hand for the cu's; got more efficient as the rounds went on the row sprints. Also, I think the monitors have some variance. I think my normal reads out lower and today I used an older one in my garage.
