Barbell Warmup

Take 15 minutes to work up to a heavy snatch

Take 15 minutes to work up to a heavy clean and jerk.

Partner Wod

For time:

Deadlifts (135/95 lbs)

Ladder from 1 rep to 10 reps then ladder back down to 1. Each partner will do their reps as the other partner holds the weight off the ground waiting for their partner to finish.

Rules: Every time the barbell is laid on the ground each partner will do 20 kettlebell swings (35/25) at the end of the WOD, the clock will still be running for that team to complete the deadlifts and kettlebell swings. If one partner places their bar on the ground and the second partner decides to place their bar on the ground that is 40 kettlebell swings. If you try to get a better grip on the bar and briefly place the barbell on the ground or change your foot placement that is 20 kettlebell swings.

*Well, maybe its an addiction. Almost four months ago, July 1st to be exact, I decided to get my health back in order and get myself into better shape. I joined an intense (extreme?) workout regiment called CrossFit. For those that have spoken/seen me in that last few months, they know I cannot shut up about it. Well, one of the guys in my "Box" wrote an interesting piece on his website regarding his first 3 months as a CrossFit member. His articulate article puts everything I feel/experienced about CrossFit in one piece. If you have time and/or are thinking of getting back into shape, or if you are physically fit and are looking for a new physical challenge, I highly suggest you read the article.

November 1st will be my 120th day as a CrossFit member. To date, I am just shy of losing 30lbs. The weight loss, however, doesn't tell the whole story. The amount of lean muscle mass put on has been equally impressive. I hope to hit my goal by next week.


PS. My wife joined as well for moral support & in the process has gotten hooked too.*
