Oh… So that’s why I felt so bad yesterday. Cause I have the fucking flu. Good news tho, at this rate I can pull a “Spencer” and cut to 69kg.
Spencer on technical Weightlifting stuff.
Paul Castaneda – 260# Snatch:
30 Snatches 135/95#
Jon North wrote a helpful little blog post addressing kind of the same thing (over extending). Also a good read…
If Spencer’s link is not working…
Damnit Rudy. Would you just give me my fucking nerdgasim on weightlifting that you’ve been promising me since Saturday?!!
2:17 rx’d that was nasty!!!
I’ve got 2 spots for New Orleans – Feb 24-26th, if any of you guys are interested.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Did 2012 Open WOD 2 instead. Last year- 67. Today- 71 with a 4:47 Isabel in the middle.
3.10 @ 95lb.
Really weak at Oly lifting – hopefully I’m in the right place to improve.
squat or power?
seriously just get it overhead
If it said games version i would assume power, Just wanted some clarification. thanks!
1:07 rx mostly muscle snatched
You’re alive! Where have you been?
Started working with an Oly coach 3 times a week. Haven’t been doing as much Outlaw, I get it in when I can though 🙂
Nice man, good to see you’re still around!
You’re a beast. That’s impressive
You sure thats 135# cause you make it look like its about 95#!!!
Did not manage my breaks well.
fuckin suck at snatches
Not my strong-suit….but I did the work
4:27 as Rx
2:43 RX’d (1:30 PR from August)
3:16 Rx took 30s off my previous Isabel.
First time doing this benchmark.
*really surprised myself today. think i left time on the table by breaking to singles too soon when I really didn’t have to.
**tasted blood after completion. i wasn’t bleeding. anybody know what that’s about?
forgot to say… (PR) by 50 seconds
sometimes i have a strange coppery taste in my mouth when i train as well. i find it happens more often if i haven’t eaten enough carbs through the day. could be totally a bogus explanation but thats my only guess
the copper/metal taste… that i’m used to. this was a whole different level.
Same here. That’s how you know it’s good
I have that problem after a hard metcon. feels like your teeth are bleeding on the inside. i haven’t found anyone with an explanation yet…
Max was 175 On Monday
3:27 as rx…. :30 slower than PR….
Stronger than I have ever been but I have zero wind.
Zach is a strong SOB
2:10Rx…. Felt great all the way through think I couldve gone a bit faster through the middle and more explosive. Tons better than last year at this time.
3:25; (PR – 2:40, 9/2/2012). I wouldn’t read too much into it.
5 min, back was roasted at 20
isabel- 3:34. first time rx.
Isabel- 1:41 (7 sec PR)
Made up yesterday’s test as well
400 – 1:03
Pretty amazing week! After coming off of a layoff for 6 weeks I started back training and cutting the junk food Jan 7th. Strict Paleo has been awesome! Special thanks to my wife for the food 🙂
I am no competitive exerciser. I workout for myself at home with no coaching
If I don’t work them my HSPUs, pull-ups, muscle-ups and especially my running plummets.
That being said, I had a couple of good PRs this week. Diane was cut almost in half from 26 min and change to 13:29 and Isabel was cut 2 1/2 min to 4:00! I’m pretty happy!
The squats and 400s were ugly at best. It will take some time to get back some speed.
I think, with some coaching I could actually be good at Olympic Weightlifting…
8:26 at 85#
-ugh…can you tell that this is a weakness of mine? Can’t wait for the day that I can do this rx’d!
1:49 PR’d by over 2 mins!!
Pr by 1:30
2:36 Rx (first time doing it Rx)
First time with this benchmark
Did 15, 5, 5, 3, & 2. Rests were too long and should have done all 5 on the final set… Will be under 2 min next time!
3:24 Rx, pr by :16
First time with this one:
3:06(PR) Happy with PR but definitely not satisfied. Felt like I should have done better.
Felt terrible, should not have run this today.
I used this as an opportunity to retest 12.2. I got 70 reps last year and that wod kept me from going to regionals. Well i got 83 reps today which would have been a top 20 finish in my region last year. FUCK YEAH!
A pr by over a minute. Pretty happy. Felt like I took a lot of breaks.
Isabel @ 95#
“Isabel”: 2:58 RX, first time
Isabel- 1:56 PR by a couple mins… still not awesome
First time on this one.
2:45, Significant PR
scaled to 115 and 4:11
45kg in 3:26. 8 weeks ago did 45kg 22 reps in 4:00.
2.42 down from 3.39, happy with that faster again soon I reckon.
5×5, 4 and 1.
30 Snatches @ 95#
