Power snatch, 3-3-3-3 (touch-and-go reps)

Clean and jerk, 2-2-2-2 (can be power or squat cleans)


Technique suffered as a result of it being to heavy. I kept muscling it up as opposed to one fluid motion. Many years of lifting is going to have to be reprogrammed real quick if I want to be competitive in the open.

WOD: 3 Rounds for time of:
15 Toes to bar
10 Kettlebell swings, 70#/55#
5 Burpees

Used a 75lb KB (Thank you, Mario) and achieved a time of 5:10

My toes to the bar sucked and I will be putting in some serious overtime on them to improve.

What are toes to the bar?

These *******s right here...


The goal is not the thing itself. Broadcasting it is not execution. The fellow I wrote about in the Self Delusion essay on the public site confuses announcements about his goals and plans with the actual doing of things. I don't ever say "just do it" (it's trademarked anyway). I say shut-the-****-up and do it. Then you can write your blog. Internet declarations of intent carry as much weight as the excuses used when one falls short. Besides, you can always do more than you think so announcing your intentions can be self-limiting.

What the world needs is less talk and more action.
