Incredible numbers were put up on the CrossFit Total. A big cheer for John L, health who broke the 1000 pound barrier 345/187/470. Not close behind were strong men Matt, Nick G and Big Man Bob. Melissa and Anna each put up near 700# totals with tons of PRs thrown in. Rachelle had a 135# PR on her deadlift and at least 30# PR on the press. Anna, Joe, Sara H, Sarah L, Alexis and John each PR’ed every single lift, and of course, the Total. That’s 24 PR’s among just 6 athletes. Incredible!
A huge shout out to Coach Lou that has put together a strength plan that is both fun and extremely effective.
Workout of the Day
4 sets of the Complex
2 Power Snatch
2 Hang Snatch
2 Overhead Squat
Every attempt should be made to hang onto the bar. But if you drop it, just pick it up and complete the set. I would say 2 minutes rest between sets, and these are meant to be heavy across, so you may need 10 minutes to get warmed up. For the warm up, 1 recommend a Power Snatch, a Hang Snatch, and an OHS.
The Hang Snatch portion is you choice – you can start from whichever position you choose – high to low hang, even below the knee if you need to work on that position. You may receive in an OHS, or do Hang Power Snatch.
