Yes, we have had multiple snafus with the live stream of the inaugural Outlaw Open. However, it looks like we’ve gotten everything fixed and should be ready to roll for our morning lifting session. As I said above, we will not start tomorrow’s event until the live stream is working. Our projected start time is 8:30AM PST, but if there’s any issues I will keep you all updated as much as possible. Thanks for not being jerks and being patient with us. There’s ZERO corporate money funding this thing, and we want to make it accessible for everyone, so we’ll keep trying our damnedest to make you all a part of what we think will be one of the best events in the history of mankind (hyperbole alert).
Side note: for all if you iPhone nerds (points at self), Livestream has an app which will allow you to watch the feed on your phones. Awesomeness.
Satuday’s Outlaw Open schedule:
9:00am – 12:00pm – Weightlifting Total: 3 sessions run on 2 platforms, based on opening numbers.
12:00pm – 2:00pm – Agility test + 3 minute Row for meters: heats of 5, every 8 minutes (heats announced during WL total).
2:00pm- 4:00pm – Med-Ball Toss (for distance) + Muscle-Up/Front Squat workout: heats of 10, every 12 minutes.
*All times are PST.
Elisabeth Akinwale totalled 181kg tonight. This was 20kg better than her total at last year’s American Open, and she was red-lighted on a 105kg Clean & Jerk that would have given her a 185kg total (she completed the lift, as you’ll see below, but was red-lighted for a slight press out). Even though it didn’t count for USAW standards, the 105kg (231#) was a lifetime PR for Elisabeth.
Elisabeth Akinwale – 105kg Clean & Jerk at the American Open:
3 attempts to establish a 1RM Snatch.
3 attempts to establish a 1RM Clean & Jerk.
15 minutes to establish a 1RM Front Squat.
100′ Farmers Carry 135/95#
100′ Farmers Carry 135/95#

Notes: Farmers Carries should be performed with two barbells. The 100′ should be broken into a 50′ down and back. HSPU are Regionals standard.
@EA: Nice way to get that cash, money! 😉 That’s what’s up! #PR

Well I did the bbg- hit 200lb snatch which is a 5lb PR, went to stand up with it and my low back totally gave out, It seized up, and I was stuck on the floor and couldn’t move for 20 minutes. Been on the floor at home all day. I have had disc issues in the past and I think I totally fucked up everything today.
No outlaw for this guy for a while. I’m pretty upset, was making some soild gains.
Any input advice or injury help would be apperciated. I have the snatch on video.

Good luck this weekend! A ridiculous undertaking that you should be extremely proud of.
CF L1 cert this weekend so couldn’t get to the barbell work, but did PR Fran by 52s at 4:03, that’s the only data point I have for today.
I’m expecting a big Medball Clean PR tomorrow.
Had “Fuck Yea” kind of day
Snatch: 205# / 215# / F-215# (after the three snatches I spent another 15 min or so working at them because I’ve been trying to snatch 225# before 2013, i failed the first two attempts at it but got 2 successful lifts after)
C&J: 255# / 275# (10# PR,this too was a set goal to have before 2013. No third attempt, had to teach a foundations class.)
Strength: 230# (15# PR)
Started Outlaw mid july with a Snatch of 185# and C&J of 235#, after seeing some numbers go up after the first month or so i figured a couple things. 1. Rudy, your a damn super genius, 2. I was going to snatch 225# and and C&J 275# before the years end. Today I achieved those goals so even though there’s days I want to punch you in the face rudy, today I could hug you. So thank you and the Outlaw community, this shit roolz.
2) 280 5lb PR
3) 305 5lb PR
What a great lifting day today.
Did different cond.
Also huge congrats to Spencer Arnold for winning the AO!!!

c&J 165 185 f 185 f worked from jerks yesterday
front squat 200 15lb pr
did a few hspu and felt fried, had already done 4 hours of rock climbing. psyched to finally hit 155 snatch.
195 whoo pr
7:39 as rxed
HSPU felt great i felt “amazing” after this cond
1.) 215 PR
Farmer walks slowed me down…a weakeness was definitley exposed. Couldn’t find a balance point. HSPU technique/strength has significanly improved.
20:09 – games rx’d
FS: 330# – wasn’t feeling strong tonight with anything.
Snatch to 230 – no misses.
Front Squat – Did triples, with 1st rep 3 sec pause.
*subbed 32kg KB’s, and went 200 ft instead of 100ft.
HSPU to abmat and plates.
I live in TX and I was wondering how I could get a hold of a “TX Outlaw” t-shirt? Are they still available?
I Prd my snatch by 10Lbs today at #220. Been following outlaw for 2 months. I never doubted any of the programming and It is paying off 10 fold. Thank you for this.
Oh yea also prd my front squat by 20lbs at 300#. I am Outlaw now and will say it proudly!
You, Sir. Are pushing my limits! I love it.
**had the rest day on Tuesday instead of Thursday… that hurt.
1) Snatch 185/200(f)/200(f) i have the height on the pull but I’m not dropping underneath the bar. 5# short of PR last week ,to be fair the 185 went up stupid easy
2) C&J 245/255(f)/255(f) i was failing on the clean @255
**back was breaking form, losing the bar forward.. i think it was fatigue. 10# off of PR from last week.
** prolly coulda done a little more, but my back was breaking forward so I called it quits.
18:56 **i did not believe i was going to finish with 90 HSPU. obviously, I did. sweet!
1) 185# – Was relaxing on the way down and dropping in squat. Need to think power snatch speed and the squat will happen.
2) 245# (PR for Sq clean/Jerk); 255# Sq cln (PR)
Instead of FS – Did our own competition, had 7 min to 7RM Back squat – 295# in WL shoes
Also did 47 pull ups in 90 seconds immediately following squat; 1250m Row in 4:26 and a couplet. Rested til next day for Cond.
BB Farmer carry is tough as shit. Figured out in 2nd round I need to start moving forward when I pick them up, they’re gonna tip whether you’re moving or not, and at least I was heading forward.
Did only 20 HSPU’s. Neck was bothering me quite a bit.
1.) 180, 190f, 200f (*210 is PR)
