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

Rope skips, strict pull-ups, PVC OH Squats, all technical movements

18.3 Scaled

2 rounds for time of:
100 single-unders
20 overhead squats
100 single-unders
12 chin-over-bar pull-ups
100 single-unders
20 dumbbell snatches
100 single-unders
12 chin-over-bar pull-ups

Men perform 45-lb. OHS, 35-lb. DB snatches

Time cap: 14 minutes

The Rx workout included 115# OHS, ring muscle-ups, bar muscle-ups, 50# DB snatches and Double unders.

The single unders were not bad.  They were taking me about 1 minute per round.  The OHS was tough and I broke it up into 2 sets of 10.  I did kipping pull-ups and could string together a couple each set before reverting to singles.  I was just exhausted for the DB snatches and was taking two breaths between each one.  In 14 minutes, I completed 1 round plus 95 reps or 561 reps.  Even if I had gotten back to the bar, I would have been lucky to get a rep.

Overall, it was a really good and challenging workout.  I wanted to do it on Sunday, but was battling a stomach bug.
