Re: Crossfit Log

Sounds like you found a good place. Like any organization they can vary widely. What state are you in btw?

Yeah I guess I did. Yeah I def agree with you on that. But I think my avatar could beat up yours.

Re: Crossfit Log

Whenever someone from crossfit comes to our olympic lifting gym I think they have just wasted alot of time (at least in terms of olympic lifts)

I don't think crossfit is a bad idea in principal, but from what I can tell it is done in a terrible way

I think someone who has an olympic lifting background (especially in lighter weight classes) would do pretty well in a crossfit competition without doing much at all

As you are in Leeds you should look up the weightlifting high performance centre at Leeds Met (Headingley), I guarantee you will progess with crossfit alot quicker even if you only go once or twice a week

Re: Crossfit Log

Sweet recommendation, I just sent them an email. I def agree a lighter guy with an olympic lifting background would do very very well at crossfit. There was a strange dynamic of a small non imposing 22 year old kid giving an older monster of a man technique tips yesterday. Later this kid easily scored the fastest time because of his perfect form on power cleans.

My first class WOD today:



I'm Jay obv. Messing around trying to handstand against a wall for the first time in my life was fun. I thought i could do the WOD without scaling the KB to 20kg from 24kg but the coach recommended it rather than possibly lose form later on. Wish i had done 24kg. WOD didn't feel too tough because I wasn't sure on pacing my runs.

Practiced DUs after, got a few and continued to skip but no consistency yet. Practiced more kipping and did lots of shoulder mobility.

Tomorrow's WOD has thrusters but i've been having a sharp shock in my inner left knee when at depth so tomorrow is a rest day.

Re: Crossfit Log

Good job man. Not too shabby. These are my favorite types of WODs to do for conditioning since I hate running long distance.

Re: Crossfit Log

Crossfit varies greatly depending on coaching.

Re: Crossfit Log

Were those standard kettle bell swings or the overhead 'american' variety?

snatch - 125kg
Clean and Jerk - 155kg

Jay, in Leeds you also have Andy Bolton's gym which maybe a place you want to consider
good luck
