Reply Dan T on May 22, 2013 at 7:02 am C&J 135, 135, 145, 155, 175 (10# pr) Great working w/ Ted on the platform today. Thansk for the coaching Max. Dan Reply Alison on May 22, 2013 at 1:19 pm Nice PR. Reply Andrew Ho on May 22, 2013 at 7:10 am C&J: 175, 185, 205, 215, 225 (#5 PR) For a guy who’s so great at gettin’ low in da club, you’d think I wouldn’t be so horrible at gettin’ low on the jerk. You’d be wrong. Gotsta get LOW!!! As always, great times with Big Mike, Dougie Chicken Legs Bell and Rich P…thanks, fellas. Reply Doug B on May 22, 2013 at 7:43 am Whoa whoa, those chicken legs hit 225 this morning. BOOM! Also extra style points for my sweet hat covering up my luxurious locks. Reply Rich P on May 22, 2013 at 8:44 am I think Doug was the only one on that platform who wasn’t at some point disgusted with their performance. Doug is too chill to sweat it… Reply sarah wilson on May 22, 2013 at 9:27 am big numbers Reply Rich P on May 22, 2013 at 7:42 am C&J: 175, 185 (fail jerk), 185, 185 (fail jerk), 175 Messy today. Couldn’t hide from my lack of recent training. Post WOD: Stringing together pullups more smoothly and ran a half mile just to decompress. Reply Tricia D on May 22, 2013 at 8:07 am C&J: 55, 65, 70, 75, 80 Failed the jerk on 85, but stills 5# PR. Felt weak today and really need to work on squat clean form more. Great working with you Kristen! You are strong girl!! Reply Heather O on May 22, 2013 at 8:26 am Awesome job girl! You are getting super strong! Reply Sarah S on May 22, 2013 at 8:33 am Love that you got to make it to weightlifting Wednesday! Awesome job. Reply Michelene on May 22, 2013 at 10:37 am Way to go!! Reply Tricia D on May 22, 2013 at 1:55 pm Thanks, guys and KristIN – sorry about that! Also still v. stills :). Reply Andy L on May 22, 2013 at 8:15 am C&J: 135, 145, 155, 165, 175 (fail jerk) Reply Ken K on May 22, 2013 at 8:32 am C&J: 135, 155, 165, 175, failed 185 3 times. Stuck at this weight for a while, will improve technique…Ass down, straight arms, full extension, fast elbows. Reply Kristin R on May 22, 2013 at 8:33 am C&J 5×1: 65/70/75/80/85. Not sure I’ve done this particular scheme before but I think the most I had done was 70 or 75, so definitely a PR. Great working with you today, Tricia, and thanks for the help (and cool/mortifying video analysis), Harry! Reply Big Mike on May 22, 2013 at 8:44 am C&J: 155/175/185 Fx2/185 Decided to bail as the toll of 63 snatches and 63 thrusters in the last 48 hours was ringing in my shoulder. Need some time with light volume to work on the clean as I’m still rowing and not taking advantage of the giant lever that is Big Mike. Andrew H definitely earned his platform #5 badge today. Suck form does but weight is big with this Padawan. Reply Andrew Ho on May 22, 2013 at 8:54 am Ha! Reply Eddie on May 22, 2013 at 8:55 am Clean and Jerk: 115/135/145/155/165(f)/165(f) Reply Sarah S. on May 22, 2013 at 9:05 am C&J: 85/95/100/105/110 (tied PR). The good news is that I got the 110 clean first try, but my jerk needs majoy style tips from Sarah W and Krissy. Reply sarah wilson on May 22, 2013 at 9:26 am You rocked it, Sarah S. Reply Heather O on May 22, 2013 at 9:28 am Awesome Sarah! You are so strong and are certainly an inspiration to me to hopefully get those numbers some day! Reply Michelene on May 22, 2013 at 10:39 am Impressive work. You are an inspiration! Reply Alison on May 22, 2013 at 1:17 pm You guys were rockin’ over there! Nice work. Reply Tricia D on May 22, 2013 at 1:53 pm Holy strong for a tiny little lady! Nice!! Reply Heather O on May 22, 2013 at 9:27 am Happy Hump Day everyone! I took today as a rest day after four days in a row of CF and running combo, but did get in some serious and much needed mobility this morning, so that was great. I was wondering though if anyone knows the class scheduled for the holiday on Monday? Thanks! Have a great day everyone and see the mayhemers in the am! Reply Rachel E on May 22, 2013 at 9:43 am C&J: 105/115/120/125/135 (5# PR) Failed squat clean on 140# twice, but almost there! Thanks for the video, Harry — definitely helps me visualize what I need to do. I had no idea I was a crooked cleaner… Reply Andrew Ho on May 22, 2013 at 9:48 am I totally knew. Reply Rachel E on May 22, 2013 at 9:55 am I should have known since half of my apartment is a mess. HEYOOOOOO Reply Doug B on May 22, 2013 at 10:51 am HA! Reply Maureen B. on May 22, 2013 at 11:10 am 135#!? Awesome. RAWRR. Reply Deb R on May 22, 2013 at 11:20 am So strong Rachel!! Reply sarah wilson on May 22, 2013 at 12:36 pm I live in awe of you Reply Sarah S. on May 22, 2013 at 1:46 pm I have C&J envy! That’s awesome. Reply Corey on May 22, 2013 at 10:27 pm Dude that is legit. Even crooked Reply Chris M. on May 22, 2013 at 9:58 am C&J – 210/215/220*(Failed jerk)/220/225 Strict Weighted Pullups 45×3/55×2/65×2/70×1/80×1/90×1 (Fail – close but no dice) Reply Neeb on May 22, 2013 at 9:59 am 5×1 across 225 5x300m row with 1 min rest. 55 secs each Good luck on your interview today Rita! Great PR this am too! This is your day! Reply denise sullivan on May 22, 2013 at 10:12 am c&j: 85# pr match failed at 87# and 86# now on a mission (adding 10 pu’s-day) thank you karen, great working out today Reply Wendy P on May 22, 2013 at 10:31 am C& J: 70,75,80,85,90. ( 25#PR). So fun lifting with Missy and Martha!!! Cash out: 1mile run and tabata sit ups with wall ball ( unsure of the name??) Reply Deb R on May 22, 2013 at 11:26 am C&J: 85, 90, 95, 100, 105 (5#PR) It was weally nice wifting with you today Sara C. (W’s intended). Per the “Boss man” extra work of prowler push/7 burpee combo 5 rounds. Thanks Shannon for being my partner! Reply Sara C on May 22, 2013 at 12:59 pm Wifiting with you is weally weally fun. Reply Sara C on May 22, 2013 at 12:59 pm Oh and your weights should say 85, 90, 95, 105, 105! You did that 105 twice, remember? Reply Annmarie on May 22, 2013 at 11:48 am C&J: 75, 85, 90, 95, 100 #5PR Thanks for the tips James! Reply Sara C on May 22, 2013 at 12:58 pm Major PR! Hitting 100# is an awesome milestone. Reply denise sullivan on May 22, 2013 at 4:36 pm great job A.M. psyched for you….hard work and diligence are paying off Reply JC on May 22, 2013 at 11:55 am C&J – 155# across. No point going heavier until my form improves. I tend to revert to a basic Push Press when things get heavy. Post WOD – hill runs with LJ 3 x up the hill with 30# weighted vest – all around 20 seconds. 3 x up the hill no vest – all between 18 -19 seconds. Lots of DUs. Reply L.J. DiCarlo on May 22, 2013 at 9:30 pm It was fun running with you today. Thanks for keeping me motivated! Reply Chad M on May 22, 2013 at 12:07 pm C&J 185/205/215/225 Failed at 235# Reply Susan Stein on May 22, 2013 at 12:47 pm Clean & Jerk: 75, 80, 85, 85, 85 (failed last jerk) Totally frustrating day on the platform. Got too inside my head. Completely failed 90# which I’ve done before. There’s always next time. Thanks for staying positive Carrie & Cory. And thanks for the cues Matty. Extra work: 5 rounds of 40m prowler push (25#), 7 burpees 100 ab mat sit ups Reply Sara C on May 22, 2013 at 12:58 pm C&J: 85, 90, 95, 105, 100. 105# was a 5# PR. The jerk was more of a push press at the end, so I dropped back to 100# for the final lift. I really need to work on my jerks because, as Kevin pointed out…if I can push press 105, I can jerk a lot more thank that if I can get my form correct. Thanks to Matty and Montoya for the awesome cues! Reply Ali G on May 22, 2013 at 1:11 pm 105/115/120/125/130 – failed 135 Reply Sara C on May 22, 2013 at 1:22 pm Nice, Ali!! Super impressive. Reply Alison on May 22, 2013 at 1:17 pm C&J – 85, then dropped down to 65 for skill building. I press out at the top, so am working on the aggressive punch. Really need to get that nailed. Thanks Harry for the tips. Reply Sarah S. on May 22, 2013 at 1:45 pm Smart move. See Sara C’s note above – if you can push press 85#, your jerk weight will skyrocket once you nail down the form. Reply Derek on May 22, 2013 at 1:27 pm Happy Birthday, Big Bri!!! Reply Katie C. on May 22, 2013 at 2:12 pm C&J: 105,105,105,105,115,115 (did an extra lift after watching Harry’s video…great tool and so helpful to how i move first-hand). Still letting this tricep get back to normal but felt OK today. Great lifting w/ Sam and Liz…first time w/ a weight belt which I liked. Reply Kevin G on May 22, 2013 at 2:44 pm Clean and Jerk: 85, 95, 115, 125, 130, 135 (failed) (Squat Clean & Split Jerk) A 5# PR thanks to Kevin and Heather’s awesome coaching! Reply Morgan k on May 22, 2013 at 2:50 pm 115-125-135-145-155 Reply Melinda on May 22, 2013 at 3:17 pm C&J: 105, 115, 125, 125, 135(failed jerk), 135. Not PR. + 3m run + gymnastics work As always C4, nice work today! Reply Liz M on May 22, 2013 at 4:26 pm 5×1: 105, 115, 125, 130, 135 Gave it one more try and failed on the jerk part at 140#. Yesterday: 11:37 Rx The runs felt super slow… Reply KarenH. on May 22, 2013 at 5:28 pm clean and jerk 73-78-80-85-87 PR 1 mile run before class. With music was a huge help. I didn’t focus just on how much I dislike running and I agree re: the correct form on the jerk. When it is done correctly it makes a huge difference. Now I just have to dial in getting it done correctly Reply Brian L on May 22, 2013 at 5:36 pm C&J 5×1– 155, 185, 205, 215(pr), 225 missed 5×300 row with 1 min rest, 1:05mins each DU’s 5mins Reply Rob C on May 22, 2013 at 5:37 pm C&J: 95,95,105,105,115,115(fail),115. Ha, failed for the camera!!! Suppose it’s good to see the fails to learn. Guess I got distracted, ha ha. Lot’s of fun today lifting with Leo, nice work! Reply Missy on May 22, 2013 at 6:29 pm C& J: 70,75,80,85(fail), 85 (fail), 85 – got it with a split jerk!! Haven’t done 85# since 2009. Had fun with Wendy and Martha!!! Cash out: 1mile run and 1 minute plank/ 1 minute sit ups – 4 rounds Reply Joe D on May 22, 2013 at 6:48 pm Clean and Jerk 115/135/155/175..PR!!/185..PR!!! 30lb PR overall!!! Previous PR of 155 done on 4/28/13 Reply Erin on May 22, 2013 at 7:55 pm Clean and jerk: 95, 95, 105,105, 105 Reply Mike R. on May 22, 2013 at 8:02 pm C&J: 145, 155, 165, 175, 185 (failed jerk twice) – Tied PR @ 175 on C&J and 10# PR for clean @ 185. Some MU and T2B work after… Thanks for the kipping tips on the T2B, Justin… What a difference maker. Reply Christian on May 22, 2013 at 8:04 pm C&J – 145/155/175/185/200(Failed jerk)/195 Back squat 10×3 – 225# (about a minute rest between sets, not OTM but actually took less rest as the sets progressed) 1000m row cool down An Abridged version of Bullet Proof Shoulders. Reply Christian on May 22, 2013 at 8:15 pm And Ali – awesome awesome work with the thruster. Super impressive!! Reply Eric C on May 22, 2013 at 8:37 pm C&J = 245lbs, 1 mile run. Reply LEARD on May 22, 2013 at 9:01 pm Clean and Jerk 225# (20# PR) Drilling form getting ready for the Baystate Games. I also learned not to spike the bar when I hit a PR, always learning. Reply dave mc on May 22, 2013 at 9:30 pm 5X1 C&J: 165 failed the jerk at 175 Reply Megan B on May 22, 2013 at 10:04 pm C&J 115, 125, 135, 145, f155x3, 125 Mental failure on the clean. Been a while since I cleaned heavy and I heard that voice telling me the bar was too heavy. Surprise, I didn’t get the clean. Sigh. Fortunately, tomorrow is another day and I’ll get to try again. Reply AK on May 22, 2013 at 10:07 pm First spring FH game. 60min no sub. Boo ya! Reply Christian on May 22, 2013 at 10:56 pm Big Time!! Reply Corey on May 22, 2013 at 10:34 pm 2a comp practice: 5×1 thrusters, worked up to 120. Heavy thrusters are legit difficult. Who knew? Have a great benchmark to start from. Only up from here. 1 min of hand release push ups, and one of the other comp wods “cash out”. Then max set of consecutive double unders. Got 39. Reply Jen W on May 22, 2013 at 11:12 pm NICE on the DUs! Reply Jen W on May 22, 2013 at 11:11 pm C&J: climbed to 150. Failed at 160 twice. Cash out 5x300m row with the 6:30am crew. Reply Colleen (C4!) on May 23, 2013 at 6:57 pm C&J: 105, 115, 125, 135, 135 Reply Christopher Smith on May 27, 2013 at 5:42 pm Great Information! Thanks for taking the time to post.
