August 19, 2013 – Competition

Workout of the Day
A.
Every minute, on the minute, for 15 minutes:
Snatch from Below the Knee x 1 rep
(Perform from at least 2″ below the knee cap, plates hovering slightly off the floor, pause, then snatch.)

*Sets 1-3 – 50% of 1-RM Snatch
*Sets 4-6 – 60%
*Sets 7-9 – 70%
*Sets 10-12 – 75-80%
*Sets 13-15 – 80-85%

B.
Three sets of:
Halting Snatch Deadlift + Snatch Pull
Rest 2 minutes

Perform one halting snatch deadlift, return the weight to the floor, and then perform a snatch pull. On the halting snatch deadlift, focus on weight distribution through the mid-foot (not fore foot), engagement of hamstrings, and strong lats pulling/stabilizing the barbell into the mid-thigh. Hold in position until you acknowledge all of those points.

C.
Five sets of:
Front Squat x 3-4 reps @ 4111
(You MUST move up in weight from last week by 4-6%)
Rest 3 minutes

D.
For time:
8/6 Muscle-Ups

    I really appreciate the programming. I’m seeing improvements across the board. It helps me to see how the athletes on here perform what I thought was impossible. I am amazed daily by the performances of the folks who post here. I love this stuff.

    Cj at the moment I’ve put on a bit of weight 7 pounds over the last 2 months as i no we are training a lot of strength .
    Does this matter as I feel it a bit on the cardio side specially on those mile runs on sat. I follow a zone diet I’m on 5 blocks meals and some creatine as a supplement I no training will be more as it gets closer to the open and I will trim up then just wanted to no if its a good thing to do thanks.

    • Cj Martin

      Perfect. This is a good thing in the early off-season…as long as we’re talking about increased muscle-mass and not flab. Strength is still a priority for you, so don’t worry too much about your conditioning right now.

  • Trydal

    A.) 40-45-50-55-60/62,5 kg.

    B.) 80 kg on all sets.
    C.) 3x75kg on all sets. Increased by 7 %
    D.) Managed to get in 20 DB snatch before time ran out. Used about 10 min to get there. Unbroken on the MU, cleans and front squat got a little heavy for me.

    Decided to go unbroken on the first set of power cleans and squats without dropping in between. I managed, and I think I’m stronger for it – but it definitely took longer than breaking it up. Good push with Frosti today!

    • Cj Martin

      Good job Christer. At the level that you want to compete at, you need to shift your mindset to keeping these unbroken. I would rather you have that mindset and build to the point that you can complete this entire session unbroken than have you pace this and settle for mediocrity. This is going to be a 6-minute workout for the top male athletes, so pacing the cleans and squats isn’t much of an option.

      • robert sax

        wow- i would like to be top 15 at regionals next year and to then compete as a top male athlete – considering what you just said that s a ways away whew!

        • Cj Martin

          If that’s the goal, you need to start embracing and working through pain much differently. Your times on the track show me that you can do that, but that you are much more comfortable in certain domains than others. That mindset has to carry to everything you do in training.

          • robert sax

            would you say that i should look at a workout and work for the longest possible UB set and then work from there (instead of breaking up sets)?

            • Cj Martin

              It depends, but most people who pace workouts and break sets end up underestimating what they are capable of doing as they progress. It’s a process, but if you’re constantly pushing the envelope on what you think you’re capable of doing, you’ll have a much better gauge when it comes time to compete on whether you need to break the reps or if you can power through. Use your “training” as an opportunity to learn what it feels like to push up against your redline without crossing over it and crashing and burning, rather than an opportunity to break up sets and try to “win” the workout.

              • robert sax

                makes sense! will do from now on! thanks cj

                i find im always thinking to “win” the wod as opposed to pushing hard……

      • http://www.unbroken.no/ Christer Idland

        Thanks for the input CJ! I’ll focus on having that mindset from now on.

    Had to substitute for MU’s since I don’t have them. 3 Chest to Bar Pull ups, 3 Ring dips for 1 MU. 24 reps each.
    Used 70# Kettle bell, didn’t have a heavy enough dumbbell for Snatches.

    I was disgusted in my performance, I let the pain and fatique get in my head. I rested to long. I don’t want to give excuses so I won’t give one. I was mentally defeated and it won’t happen again, period!

    • http://www.crossfitgymproject.be/ Thijs Moonen

      Great reflection for the D portion!
      Go kill it tomorrow

        Yea this old man trying to keep up with the young bucks. I am trying to not let this keep me down. I am letting this to motivate me to push harder.

    40kg / 45kg / 52,5kg / 56kg / 60kg / 63kg x.x.fx
    Felt great at the lower percentages, but I noticed the speed was getting slower and slower because of the pause.
    Failed my last rep. I couldn’t get away with this long set with a fail on the last one, so as soon as it hit the floor I picked it up again and that was one of the best reps of the whole set – explosiveness wise.
    Lesson: I need to get more angry.

    B.
    70kg / 70kg / 75kg
    Really nice feeling in the hamstrings

    C.
    5 sets of 4 at 80kg.
    Used a belt for the first time on these paused front squats and it felt great.
    3mins rest was just enough to get recovered

    D.
    11:39
    I used a 32kg KB and 60kg on the barbell for the PC and FS.

    MU: ub – 4/4
    PC: single drop, pick up immediately
    FS: 8/8 – 8/8
    KB sn: single drop, pick up immediately

    The FS was a real burn. Never did 32kg KB snatches before, I took it easy on these once. I was looking for stable shoulder positioning each time.

  • Cj Martin

    Some of the Invictus kids hit this today:
    Nuno – 6:59
    Lil’ Fish (Lauren) – 8:05
    Lukas – 7:53

    They all provided excuses. :) But in all fairness, Nuno just returned from vacation and trained all weekend, Lukas hasn’t trained in about 4 weeks while traveling, and Lil’ Fish just returned from a week at the OTC doing nothing by weightlifting. I think they each could have shaved 30 seconds or more fresh.

    • http://YouTube.com/CodyVellaTraining Cody Vella

      RX ?! Awesome job!

      • Cj Martin

        No…actually I forgot to mention that they did not do this as prescribed. Nuno and Lukas used a 75 lb dumbbell instead of a 70, and Lauren used a 55 lb dumbbell instead of a 50. Good catch Cody, thanks!

        • http://YouTube.com/CodyVellaTraining Cody Vella

          That is even more impressive haha, I feel far from fit! Hoping to stop by Invictus sometime soon for a visit!

    Sets 1-3 – 145
    *Sets 4-6 – 165
    *Sets 7-9 – 180
    *Sets 10-12 – 185
    *Sets 13-15 – 190 (1 miss)
    (This is my worst position to pull from. Sets 7-15 felt strong, just missed the last one. Knee is getting better)

    B
    225,225,225
    (These felt extremely good, as if I could snatch it)

    C
    4x225x4, 1x205x4
    (Had to grind real hard on the 225 sets.)

    D
    7:45
    (Snatches were easy, MUs could have been better. Need to practice them more, my pressing muscles were fatiguing. Cleans were fine, but the FS were tough as I did the whole session straight with minimal rest. Now that my knee is getting better my leg strength will begin to rise)

  • Niko Vandevoorde

    did a local team comp this weekend, did really well (third overall, second place prizes due to a dream team from that program winning it, not 4 members from the same gym) First time actually winning stuff, felt super cool, ha! That being said, I felt wrecked today. I need to work more on recovery, should have done some active recovery yesterday to help flush everything out. Shoulders and quads were particularly extremely sore and tight.
    A. kept it very light, 95 to 155
    B. combined it w A
    C. 225×3, 275x3x3
    D. this was horrible from the beginning. I had no fuel and mentally out of it. Rough day for me, excited to get back and redeem myself
    17:21
    MU still hard
    PC singles
    FS 8,8 both sets
    snatches were bad news, delts smoked….

    Been so surprised and excited about the strength gains I’ve seen over the past 3 months since starting invictus. Love the programming CJ. Cardio is definitely hurting but my strength is what hurt me in the open this past year – so I’m glad for the increased focus on strength.

    Was fun, but needed to keep my pace more…

    B: stayed at 145# and focused on positioning
    C: all sets at 205# x 3 reps
    D: 12:23 @ 135# and 1.5 pood KB

    3 hours of sleep does very little to help with this level of volume… That said, the upside is that I managed 8 unbroken MUs (2 rep PR). The rest of the workout was disappointing. I just didn’t have much drive and energy to push the limits…

  • Kevin Cherrick

    A.
    Every minute, on the minute, for 15 minutes:
    Snatch from Below the Knee x 1 rep
    (Perform from at least 2″ below the knee cap, plates hovering slightly off the floor, pause, then snatch.)

    *Sets 1-3 – 50% of 1-RM Snatch 115
    *Sets 4-6 – 60% 145
    *Sets 7-9 – 70% 165 missed first

    Rest 2 minutes

    235/245/245

    Perform one halting snatch deadlift, return the weight to the floor, and then perform a snatch pull. On the halting snatch deadlift, focus on weight distribution through the mid-foot (not fore foot), engagement of hamstrings, and strong lats pulling/stabilizing the barbell into the mid-thigh. Hold in position until you acknowledge all of those points.

    Five sets of:
    Front Squat x 3-4 reps @ 4111

  • Dustin Stohler

    I love the way you sick freaks keep coming up with new ways to leave me lying in a pool of my own sweat wondering if I’ve finally managed to asphyxiate myself through exercise alone. I imagine you spend your spare time coming up with alternatives to water boarding when you aren’t programming WODs. I can’t tell you how much time I spent staring at a 155# bar wanting to scale this workout, but didn’t because it meant I’d have to get on here and tell a bunch of people I’ve never met that I scaled a workout. My point is . . . you guys are awesome. Thanks for the help. Keep up the good work!

    A. Up to 145 (I can power snatch more, but I’m still trying to get good at dropping into the squat. my form felt good up to about 135#, but at 145 I was either power snatching it or struggling in the squat. Not sure what to do about this)

    B. 205#

    C. Skipped

    D. 15:55. Scaled to jumping muscle ups.

  • bassem

    C) 225 – 225 – 235 – 235

    used the belt on my last set

    D) 12:00 cap – finished 1 MU on the last set – bar MU substituted.

    Three sets of:
    Halting Snatch Deadlift + Snatch Pull
    Rest 2 minutes
    Perform one halting snatch deadlift, return the weight to the floor, and then perform a snatch pull. On the halting snatch deadlift, focus on weight distribution through the mid-foot (not fore foot), engagement of hamstrings, and strong lats pulling/stabilizing the barbell into the mid-thigh. Hold in position until you acknowledge all of those points.
