Strength day

In the morning I tackled the Deadlift 10 x 2 and OHS 5 x 5 workout but didn't finsh the OHS because it was time to go swim. I got up to 285 on the DL and Bob was just a bit under that. Lance is having back issues so he stayed with 185 and added box jumps and air squats. Both Bob and Lance did the OHS with a 30 lb bar.

In the afternoon Brenda did 75 OHS's with 40 lbs in 6:57. No way I could do that one. I just can't get that OHS. Pat did Fat Bar Deadlifts with some stupidly heavy amount of weight and then jumped up on the two big tires stacked up on a layer of car tires at 44 inches high. Big jump. Erin showed up and did some KB swings, pullups, thrusters and pushups...she's really staring to show. Collin came for his second day and learned to squat snatch and was able to do 75 lbs pretty comfortably. He also got the squat clean and push press down pretty well too. Then he did:

Air Burst

10 RDL
10 Hang Power Clean
10 Push Press
10 Front Squat
10 Pullups
Run 400
3 Rounds for time

...in 21:31. Not a bad start. After he came in from the first run he said, as so many do, "Man, it's like I've never been working out." CrossFit workouts tend to bring that notion out of people. Tomorrow we do the 500.
