    A few words of inspiration for those doing the Games WOD from Reebok CrossFit Back Bay that I thought I’d share with you all.

    This is it…
    You are at your Burpee station waiting for the countdown. You check the height of your jump as you take your final deep breaths. The coach has the remote in his hands and now it is pointed and ready to start the clock…
    In this 10 seconds you need to be confident. This time before the workout will be spent knowing that you’ve put the time in for this. In this short moment you can be sure that 90 Burpees isn’t an obstacle, but merely a snatching lubricant. You need to be certain, in these 10 seconds, that you are going to work your hardest and give it your everything. Each of those 10 seconds have been repeated time and again, but today they are yours to know that today’s workout marks the moment where you will push your limits beyond their capacity.
    Let those 10 seconds expire. And then unleash hell,

    1. Great quote! Thanks for sharing!

      Also, if you concentrate, you can hear the sound of thousands of Crossfitters laughing at that snatch joke in there. lol

    2. Heather S

      Thanks for that post Jo. Now I’ll spend the day thinking about those 10 seconds differently- focused on making those the ten second count down to an amazing gift I can hardly wait to open. Pace – belief – discipline. In my corner of the box that’s what tonight will test.

  4. Chantal L.

    QOD: Time and discipline. I was away from home Saturday until Tuesday night. I’ve been struggling with sleep/food preparation and WODing. I hate the feeling!

    WU x 2 (w/ barbell snatches & burpees)

    Games WOD 13.1
    17 minute AMRAP of:
    — 40 Burpees
    — — 30 Snatch, 75#
    — 30 Burpees
    — –30 Snatch, 135#
    — 20 Burpees
    — — 30 Snatch, 165#
    — 10 burpees
    — –Max rep Snatch, 210#

    Score 116 reps / Tiebreak: 5:53

    Managed 16 reps at 135#, which I am pretty happy with as my 1RM is 140# (set last week). I had 7 minutes to do as many 135# as possible and got 16 in. Last year I managed only 2 at 135# period.
    Once again the coaching at CFM makes the difference, and without Kevin’s advice I would not have made it that far.

    Good luck to everyone tackling this tonight! My experience (mostly Kevin’s tips that I tried to follow):
    — find a consistent pace for all your burpees, but don’t kill yourself.
    — 10/10/10 is a good breakdown for the first set of snatches…I aimed for 15/15 and it didn’t work out.
    — Find a rhythm for those heavy snatches. I was aiming for every 20 seconds and it gave me enough rest to reduce the amount of no reps.
    — oh yeah…Dear Future Me… GET UNDER THE BAR!!!

      1. Blake

        You can do it Robyn! When you get to the 45# snatches just focus on good form and be confident! The Games is all about pushing your limits and surpassing your own goals. I predict a new AWESOME PR for you and epic smiles all weekend!

    1. 2 scenarios, I believe…

      1) you will get a new snatch PR at 45#, (probably) for more than 1 rep.
      2) if 45# doesnt quite work out (doubtful), the first round of burpees still counts torwards a Rx score, and you could scale weight to get a good workout no matter what.

      To summerize, anyone can/will submit an Rx score, but if weight is scaled no reps will count beyond 40 burpees.

      Any other coaches care to elaborate, or correct me if Im wrong?

    Foam Roll Friday (calves and shins)

    WOD:
    6 rounds
    12 KBS @ 30#
    20 squats
    Time: 9:12

    Quads were like jello, during the first round of 20 squats I could tell this one was going to be tough…and it was.

  7. Someone mentionned (Kim?) that we should try and do burpees to games standard whenever possible in the next year. We’d surely be better crossfitters for it, no doubt.

    Anyone?

    1. Joanna

      Would it be nice…yes. Is it possible…not really. Regular classes with up to 14 people all needing something set to their specific height does not make for an easily run class, would not be possible in all cases. Not to mention if there’s other equipment required for the workout. Doesn’t mean you can’t practice on your own though. And just hold yourself to a higher burpee standard. Get your feet off the floor and arms straight up in the air at the top, don’t cheat the move by keeping your arms bent on the jump, get used to getting full extension at hip and arm on every one. That’ll help.

      1. Yeah you are right. I think I will do it if for example Im in a class with only 3 people and I could get a spot under a bar. Or if I ever miss a WOD that Im registered for, or lose a burpee bet.

    1. Lora

      Those were crazy one-arm snatches tonight Patrick! Very impressive….and so bad-ass! Happy I got to witness that πŸ™‚

    Games 13:
    I am 52 years old and I’m the strongest I’ve ever been – but the strongest I’m going to be. People say that a Games workout is just another wod – it’s not. It’s an affirmation of our every lift, every jump, every rip, every drop of sweat.
    People worry that Games will defeat them – it won’t. It only raises the bar below what we are really capable of.
    People think that Games is a Stanley Cup, a Superbowl, a conclusion – it’s not. It’s the beginning of our next year.

    Let the Games begin.

    1. Chantal L.

      VOUS are such an inspiration to me! This clearly shows why.

      Let the games begin! (I love the Hunter games reference)

      P.S. I didn’t know vous were 52 (same as my mom – sorry to make you feel old – maybe I should stop ‘vous’-ing you now! )

      1. Heather S

        Vous me all you like – a little respect goes a long way πŸ˜‰ But now the real question is…why haven’t you got your mom crossfitting??

    SCORE: 71 >>> I got through the first set of snatches and squeaked out 1 more Burpee. Thanks Judge Wendy!

    The last time I remember crying at CrossFit was the first time we did 100 Burpees (25×4). This would be the second, partially because I was a ball of nerves and it felt good to be finished, but mostly, because I REALLY did not think that a single 45# snatch was going to happen, let alone 30 of them! Thanks, Kevin, Jo, and Amanda for SO SO much!

      1. I think what you saw all over my face was me willing myself, “Do NOT throw up, cry, or faint, right now!” πŸ˜€

    I couldn’t snatch 75lbs so I tried with 65lbs and I got 2. Then I tried with 70lbs and I got 1. Finaly, I had 1 minute left so I tried the 75lbs again… twice… but I couldn’t do it. I still got a PR since my previous PR for snatch was 45lbs πŸ™‚ GREAT JOB EVERYBODY !!!

    Score : 107

    Burpees were tough but I think the worst part of it mental… not used to the big 40 and 30 numbers.

    Happy that I was able to snatch 7 x 75#, considering that I had just done those once before and had only gotten to 40#. The bad part was that I ran out of time and could have kept going… so if I had to redo it I would push harder on the 2nd set of burpees to get more time for the snatches. Oh well!

    Ok. Rookie question time… who uploads the scores onto the Games’ website? And if it’s me, how do I do it?

    Excellent atmosphere, excellent work by all at CFM tonight!

  25. Amanda

    Wod 13.1 – 117 reps. Happy with that, just wanted to get more than a few of the 75# snatches because that’s more of them that I’ve ever done. And my max is only 85.. I spend a lot of time working on my form with a snatch rather than getting heavy, because it’s such a tricky lift and I want to be good at it.

    Those bastard burpees kicked my ass.

    What a fun night!!! Thanks for the great judging, Jason!

    My highlights:
    Patrick’s 1-armed snatches.
    Hearing some of the girls whose nerves got the better of them today say that they were glad they signed up and that it was fun (Sarah, Robyn, Leesa, and some others). Really proud of everyone who was afraid and did it anyway.
    Evan’s 135# snatches!! They were a thing of beauty, I was a VERY proud coach. His attention to his form paid off tonight. Well done, Evan!!
    I missed it but I heard Tara R’s 75# snatch was fun to watch. πŸ™‚
    Sebastians’s 135# snatch!
    Great job everyone! Can’t wait until next Friday!!

    Bucking furpees!!! They get me every time!

    Definitely could have done more snatches at 100#, but ran out of time because the burpees kicked my ass.

    Note to self: a week of vacation with crap food and less than 5 hours of sleep the night before a Games WOD, is not the best way to prepare…although, I’m still pretty happy with my score. Thanks for being an awesome judge tonight Heather πŸ™‚
