CrossFit Games Open 11.4


That tme of week again - CrossFit Games WOD #4

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:

60 Bar-facing burpees

Overhead squat, 30 reps 55/40kg

10 Muscle-ups

Ahhh, was wondering when they would come about, but both in one workout - destroyer of all that is good - burpees and muscle ups!  Does Coach Glassman hate me?  HAHA

Also, first workout of the Fittest of the Sierras this weekend - I can tell you until I get to those rings hanging in the air laughing in my face I am great on this workout.

Wednesday 13, April 2011

Today is a strength metcon for all my boys in the house (OK, truth be told this is one of my favorites as well.)

It is an actual FMP from Coach Ord and BrassRing Fitnes.

Operation Rock and Roll

Deadlift 10,000lb/5,000lb
Power clean 7,500lb/3,500lb
Push press 5,00lb/2,500lb

So, pick a manageable weight for each movement - key here is not to be a clock whore, but to make sure your form is good on each and every rep.  If you feel form giving, reset, or drop he weight.

Find your weight, and then figure out how many times you have to move the bar with that weight to equal the pound amount of the lift.

Deadlifts 70kg = 64 reps
Power cleans 50kg = 63 reps
Push press 40kg = 57 reps
