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.

Although I did this scaled on Friday, I wanted to repeat and submit an Rx score.  Eliza was kind enough to judge me and I managed to get the first 21 deadlifts in 2:06.  I did not attempt a HSPU.  I would rather work on a strict HSPU and negatives until I can lower safely.


Back Squat

*Set 1 – 5 reps
*Set 2 – 3 reps
*Set 3 – 1 rep
*Set 4 – 5 reps – Heavier than first set of 5
*Set 5 – 3 reps– Heavier than first set of 3
*Set 6 – 1 rep– Heavier than first set of 1

Choose the loads based on feel, but these should be heavy!

Rest 2-3 minutes between sets.

I went


I skipped the metcon which was dumbbell thrusters and pull-ups.  I attempted a few pull-ups and my right pec is still tender.
