Lifting Weights and Watching Clocks

October 11, 2018

Friday’s workout comes from CrossFit.com.  It will require some serious time management and even more serious barbell pit crew work.

Listen up – you cannot Bogart the 5s!!!  Roll them over to your friends.  Your friends sure would like a hit.

Keep some 5s and 2.5s handy, but please, please, switch to bigger plates as soon as possible.  That means using the 45s as soon as feasible.  You should not be loaded up with 10s and 15s.  Once you get to the DL, your bar will be overloaded.

If this goes the way I think it will, it will take 40 minutes. You will spend significant time on the Snatch, likely a short time cleaning, and significant time on the deadlift.

Workout of the Day

With a running clock, every minute perform 1 lift and add 10/5 pounds.  Start with a naked bar.

With an empty bar, Snatch for as many minutes as possible.

Once you cannot snatch the weight, clean for as long as possible.

Once you cannot deadlift the weight, deadlift for as long as possible.

Score is your best lift for each.
