Double Down

Today is a double strength day. Work your two (or one) strengths of your choice.

Cashout – 30 Stiff-legged Wall Balls (must clear the 10′ line to count, no dip – just arms)

If you have extra time, work on a β€œgoat” (something you suck at).

  8. Jack

    Wu x 1

    Snatch – working on landing low in the squat. Low weight, perfecting form.

    45×5,65×5,65×5,65×5,65×5

    – Much better. Switched to hang just to work on the hip pop and extension. Landing is getting much more solid.

    Split Jerk – Never really practiced these but they need to be developed.

    95×3,95×3,135×3,155×3,175×3

    – These went very well. Much easier than I thought. Could have gone heavier.

    30 stiff leg wall balls.

    10 @ 20#
    30 @ 14#

    -Hard, nuff said.

    Snatch
    45×5 65×3 85×3 100×3 115x1PR

    Thanks for the tips Blake and good job!

  10. Jenn M

    Front Squat x5
    35-35-35-35-35 (still have trouble with not lifting my heels so I stayed at the same weight throughout)

    Cashout

    1. Valerie Arseneau

      That’s nuts! Those are the numbers I was trying to hit this AM on the squat cleans but it just wasn’t happening.

      Man, good job!

  14. A little tip to the later classes regarding cashout:

    If you cannot throw the ball over 10′ without keeping your heels completely on the ground, the ball is probably too heavy and you are using your calf muscles to compensate.

    Just sayin’. πŸ™‚

    1. Blake

      Typically deadlifts, power snatch, clean and/or shoulder-to-overhead (any press), thrusters… but could be anything really.

      Anything that pops up will be from the floor no doubt..

  15. Blake

    WU x 1 (sloppy WU)

    Back Squat
    x 5: 160 – 210 – 230
    x 2: 250
    x 1: 270 (PR)
    deload: 10 x 135#

    (Squat) Snatch
    x 5: 45 – 65
    x 3: 85 – 100
    x 1: 120 (PR)

    Getting better at not bottoming out on the squat…still needs work though. Still not up to my Power Snatch PR but getting there.

    30 straight-legged wall balls @ 20# … plus about 10 “off-the-heels” or too-low no-reps.
    probably not my funnest party game.

  16. Josh

    Clean & Jerk
    105×5
    135×4
    165×3
    195×2
    215×1
    220×1 5# PR for clean and 15# PR for jerk.
    Practice MU’s on rings.
    Cash out= 30- 14# just arm wall balls.

    5-5-3-3-1

    95-115-135*-135(2)-135(1)

    *did 3 but depth was not there for any of them

    Front Squats

    5-5-3-3-1

    185-225-265-285-310 (PR for 1RM of 10#)

  18. Heather Colleen

    WU x 1

    Cleans:

    55-65-75-85-95

    PR for form…I’ve gone higher but to quote Marie-No at the time “You got it up, but that was NOT a clean.” These might have been a bit slow on the elbows, but they were definitely cleans. πŸ™‚

    Shoulder Press:

    34-45-50-55 (4) – 57 (1)

    I suppose the 57# is a PR although I only did 1…really wish my presses would come along faster… πŸ™
