CrossFit - Greg Glassman

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. - Greg Glassman

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.

CrossFit Front Squats

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Coach Andrea

(11AM) James, Michelle, Steve B and me

Warm Up

2 rounds of 250m row with legs only, 250m row with arms only, 10 KB swings (25#), 10 Goblet Squats (25#)


5-4-3-2-2-1 (75% to 95%+) Front Squat.  Warmed up 10x45# and 5x95# focus on high elbows, slow to 75% of drop and then quick from the bottom.  I partnered with Steve B.  We did 5x135#, 4x145#, 3x155#, 2x165# and 2x175# (PR!).  I attempted 1x180# and bailed.  Steve B. attempted 1x195# and nailed it.


As many rounds of “Tailpipe” in 8 minutes.  Tailpipe is 250m row, while partner holds double kb’s (55/35#) in the front rack position.  L2:  44/26#;  L1:  35/16#.

Steve B was maintaining a solid 1:45/500m pace on the rows and used 44# KB.  I was able to maintain 1:55-2:00/500m and used 35#KB.  We finished with 7 + 244m (1994m).  I started to feel the pressure of the KB in the front rack position and felt like my chest was constricted.  Slowing down on the return part of the row was very beneficial.  I was able to maintain my pace without wasting effort.

Mobility:  Couch stretch, flared legs against wall, squat against wall and foam roller on back
