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

Warm Up with foam rolling, air squats, pass throughs, Samson stretches
Hang Power Clean
6x3@65#, 95#, 115#, 125#, 135#, 145#
This felt good. Work on full hip extension and fast elbows.
Snatch Grip Deadlift
3x6@135#, 155#, 185#
This felt OK. I ended up taping up my thumbs. 185# was heavy.
Heaving Snatch Balance
65#, 65#, 55#, 55#
Plan was to build each set, but my shoulder mobility was nill. I used 65# for the first two sets and was not dropping into a full squat. I used 55# for the last two sets and I felt better, but apparently the weight was way behind my back.
