WODs for the week 10-10-16

October 10, 2016

Olympic Lifting-  You will see that much (but not all) of THIS week is the same prescription as last week,  in fact the 8 week block turns has what amounts to 4 mini-cycles in it.   Recording your numbers is important.  Please make sure you do so.  Some of these days the work volume is high and you won;t have a ton of time to waste on figuring out what weight you need to be at via trial and error.

MONDAY-  5setsx3reps Power Snatch.  5×3 Power Clean. 5×3 Front Squat with a 3 second pause.  5×2 Snatch Grip Deadlift with a 5 second descent.

TUESDAY- 1 Snatch Pull, 1 Snacth, 2 Overhead Squats x 5.  1 Clean Pull, 1 Clean, @ Front Squats X 5.  Clean Deadlift 5×2 with a 5 second descent.

WEDNESDAY- 20 minutes of elevation at 75-80%

THURSDAY-5×2 Split Jerk with a 2 second pause.  5×3 Snatch Grip Push Press.  5×5 Snatch Grip Bent Row. 3×8 Good Mornings.

FRIDAY- Snatch Max then x3 singles at 85%.  Clean Max then x3 Singles at 85%.  Back Squat x3max the 3sets of 2 reps at 85% of that number.


Monday–CFG Open WOD 11.3

MEN – includes Masters Men up to 54 years old
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 5 minutes of:
Squat clean (165lb / 75kg)
Jerk (165lb / 75kg)

WOMEN – includes Masters Women up to 54 years old
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 5 minutes of:
Squat clean (110lb / 50kg)
Jerk (110lb / 50kg)

Squat clean and Jerk
In this movement, the barbell goes from ground to overhead with the athlete passing through a full squat position while the barbell is racked on the shoulders. This can be a full-squat-clean-thruster, a power-clean-front-squat-split-jerk, or anything in between as long as the three key positions are reached. The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing. The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below knees. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the heels.

Rest 5 Minutes–Then Repeat workout identically except loads are 135/95.  Score each WOD separately. We did this in last year’s run-up to the open on 1-29-16.  I didn’t post my scores but I did record them.  I got 40 reps (20 full clean and jerks) at 165 and 50 (25 c&J) at 135.  Scale the first weight to a load you think you can get  4 times in a minute. Then reduce by 15 or 20 %.   This is pretty tough.
