Alex Nettey and Alex Tubbs – matching 300# PRs:

Day one Chicago Training Camp – ridiculous. The amount of huge lifts tonight, per capita, was completely unexpected. To see 5 or 6 women on a bar making attempts at a 185+ Clean and Jerk, or 5 or 6 men on a bar making attempts at a 300+ Clean and Jerk, is something I never could have imagined would become a fairly normal occurrence. Cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings.

WOD 121006:

BB Gymnastics

1) 3 attempts to establish a 1RM Snatch.

2) 3 attempts to establish a 1RM Clean and Jerk.

Notes: Treat this like a meet. Warmup well, then stick to only 3 attempts. Plan out your lifts beforehand, and rest 2-4 minutes.


Take 7 minutes to establish a 1rm Front Squat, then:

2 reps every 30 seconds for 7 minutes @ 75% of above.


5 Push Jerks 135/95#
10 Burpee Over the Box Jumps 20″
15 KBS 24/16kg
10 Push Jerks 135/95#
20 Burpee Over the Box Jumps 20″
30 KBS 24/16kg
15 Push Jerks 135/95#
30 Burpee Over the Box Jumps 20″
45 KBS 24/16kg

For time.

Notes: A touch on the top of the box is not required, but it is allowed.

    worked up to 315 on front squat
    as rx’d on 7 min work at 235

    17:44 had to use 55 lb db. didnt have kbs today.

    • HELP!!! i watched the video of my last snatch today adn last clean and i need help. the one thing i notice is i stay on my toes and dont go back to my heels. THis doesnt allow me to get under the bar in the snatch and it doesnt allow me to stablize the clean. How can i work on this? heres the videos for other problems people notice.

      • Just focus on lift offs from the ground to the pocket position. increase the weight only if form is awesome. focus on pushing the knees back hard and activating the lats to pull the bar back into the thigh. keep your chest up and make sure your hips dont rise before your chest.

  8. coach et al., question: today was shit. Last night I woke up twice having nightmares (WTF am I 8 years old?) and just felt crap today – sore joints, the works. Anything heavy overhead was just killing me. So I backed off. Is it advisable to re-do the 1RM test on Monday; i.e. are we going to be using those numbers to work from later in this cycle? Thanks in advance.

    Conditioning: this felt ok. wasn’t blazing fast, but kept moving. the coach running the main wod at our gym shut off the clock about midway because his class was done so I have no time. probably about 8-10 minutes tho. No way to tell really.

  21. BBG:
    Snatch: 88lbs, 108lbs, 108lbs-toughest movement for me. It is not the weight but my technique just have to keep working at it. I signed up for a Crossfit Boot Camp at Red Point for specialized coaching on it.
    Clean and Jerk: 108lbs, 128lbs, 133lbs. Still not good with my hand and wrist placement. Need to work flexibility.

    128lbs-1RM-7 mins
    88lbs-1 Rep-7 mins

    20:20 – had to use a 24″ box because the gym did not have a 20″ box.

    No snatch, PR’d earlier this week



    Front Squat up to 315, felt heavy. maxed out back squat yesterday

    reps @ 255, completed



  28. BBG:
    1) snatch went up to 105#, which is far from PR, but better still not worst day, especially when I could not at the beginning snatch 95# for warm up. Calmed myself down and just snatched to have at least sty.
    2) did not do. Made instead open wod of 7mins. of 1-2-3-4-…ladder of hang cleans@100# and T2B.

    186#, PR by 41# since 20/08/12. That’s crazy that I am much stronger, but my Oly lifts do not progress. It drives me crazy….

    15:10mins. RX.

  29. BBG

    1) 175, 185(f), 195

    2) 245, 265, 280(f jerk)



    Done @ 260



  30. Sooo… I had an actual meet today and was hoping to qualifying for the American Open in the 85kg class. This requires a 260kg (572) total. So warming up I stuck my PR of 120kg (264) on the first try so I decided that would be my opener as it would give me a chance on the clean and jerk. And of course, I missed all three attempts coming very close on two of them. Bombed out! I am going to try again later this month I think. I know I can fucking do it damn it.

  31. My Oly lifts weren’t on point today. Didn’t get close to my previous 1rm for both lifts.
    Snatch: 135# (failed at 145# x 3) PR = 155#
    Clean & jerk: 175 (failed 185# x 2-ended up doin high pulls, I wouldn’t drop and just stopped after doin that twice)

    1rm front squat: 240# (5# PR) FINALLY A PR
    Completed the strength conditioning @ 180#

    Conditioning: 11:48.
    Burpees felt slow. Kept movin the whole time.

  32. BBG: Snatch: 265
    Clean/Jerk: 315

    Strength: 1RM front squat: 375
    : 285lb for the 7 mins

    Conditioning: 17:58 Rx

  33. 1) After making 80kg really easily, I failed 85kg closely 3 times. My PR is 90kg so I’m gutted
    2) 110kg. Failed 117.5kg twice. I’m slow as shit.


    Sets done at 120kg – Completed but it got spicy

    Conditioning – 15:20

    Burpee box jumps suck.

  34. BB Gymnastics
    Technique day for me – up to 90%

    285 then reps @ 215


  35. Thank you Outlaw.. Yet still no excuses, Yesterday I took 5th place in the Fitober event in Branson MO. I’m pretty proud of that considering the caliber of ladies in the north central region. In the last event I was keeping up with the first place leader until we hit overhead squats. It was light and I should have had no problem, something was off. Any way I’m not letting that ever happen again. Starting a once a week buy out doing 20 ohs
    adding 5 lbs every week.

  36. BBG:

    1. 145, 155 (f), 155 (f)
    2. 185, 200 (f), 200 (f) — cleaned 200 but couldn’t get under it on the jerk

  42. Snatch: Failed all 3 attempts. Started at 200 and missed but went up, like I would have in a meet, because I knew I had it just was a little forward. Ended up missing the other 2 at 205. I guess going up was not a good choice. Not a happy about this.

    C&J: No time.
