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 Golden - Lacey/Janet

1200 - 3 of us

Warm Up

"Roxanne" - start in bottom of the squat and play song by the Police, on "Roxanne" stand and lower for the first half of the song, on "Roxanne" do a burpee the second half of the song.  Reminiscent of "Bring Sally Up" at Crossfit Undeniable.

Hip Hammy

Gymnastics

Autonomous Skill Work 

Take 15 minutes to work on multiple skills from the below list. All progressions and
modifications will be acceptable to work on during this time.

- Pistols
- L Sit/Hollow Holds
- Handstand walking and Holds
- Handstand Pushups
- Muscle ups (bar or ring) – and all progressions
- Pull ups
- Toes To Bar
- Rope Climbs
- Double Unders

I worked on kipping pull-ups - key is to establish kip from belly button to sternum; then work on timing for hip pop and pull; then work on holding hollow body at the top of the pull-up

I tried a few sets of kipping leg raises, but was breaking my superman at the knees

Recommended to work on kip timing every session in the gym.

Metcon

Metcon (AMRAP - Rounds and Reps)

Against a 12-minute running clock…
Run 1200 Meters
Immediately followed by as many rounds and reps as possible of:
12 Push Press (95/65 lbs)
12 V-Ups

I ran the first 800 in 3:51 and the 400 in 2:18, I started the push presses with 5:51 on the clock.  I scaled the push press to 65# and was able to do 6/6 without issue.  I scaled to tuck-ups and was able to do 4/4/4 without issue.  I finished with 3 complete rounds + 15 reps.

That was the fastest 800 I have run at CFG.

Finished with OH Bamboo lunges (5# plates) OH Bamboo Walk (4kg KB) and 1 rope climb.  Felt really good today.
