Oly Class is Back!

JM_CrossFit_20121115_2836

We work on the Olympic lifts and their accessory exercises a lot (they basically comprise all of our regular strength work), but it’s good to know some of you want more.  By popular demand, I’m very excited to announce that on Wednesday, March 6th at 6 PM we will begin offering a weekly Olympic weightlifting specific class again.  This class will focus entirely on practicing and perfecting the snatch and clean & jerk, and will replace the Basic Training class offered at that time.  If you’d like to get a little extra quality time with a barbell, all you need to do is sign up and show up ready to put heavy things over your head.

    Push-ups got really tough on this one. Great job by everyone in the 6am!

    Push Press 37kg
    WOD: 5 + 9 rope pulls (lots of room for improvement on rope climbs for me. Did the first 3 rounds with just 1 climb then moved to 9 rope pull-ups).

    Push Press: 45kg. I overextend my back a lot when we go overhead and it gets heavy. Failed one set at 45 because of that. Things to work on!

    WOD: 4+2 Rx. I fought to not get lapped by James on this one…but damn those rope climbs are fast!

    Great work 6!

    PP: 180# – 3 rep PR.
    WOD: 3 rounds even. Rx.

    Sure, it’s not that many rounds, but I’m psyched that I had a total of 9 rope climbs in a 10 minute WOD with other movements.
