Yesterday Rich did the workout again and improved his score too…304 maybe, can’t remember but right around there. Cody went from 225 to 265, an incredible 40 point jump and Dan jumped from a crazy 391 to an even crazier 404. I was also stellar and went from 260 to 256…but we’ll just keep that to ourselves now won’t we.
The CrossFit Open is going on now…
…and it is your opportunity to mix it up with the rest of the CrossFitting Planet. Each week a new workout is posted and I will be posting that workout for everyone to try. The first workout, 14.1 (2014, 1st workout) came out today and was:
30 Double Unders
15 Barbell Snatches (ground to overhead…snatches are fastest)
10 Minute AMRAP
Barbell weight is 75 lbs for the men, 55 for women. For those of us who actually had dinosaurs as pets when we were kids, the weight was 65 lbs. Had we had any women in that category, 45 lbs.
Dan 391 which puts him in 32nd place in the entire friggen world out of 8,565 score submissions so far and 1st in the Northwest with 392 entries.
Rich 276 points which puts him 1,649th out of 8,565 in the world and 85th out of 392 in the NW.
Eugene 260 points which put me 6th in the world but only out of 82 score submissions and 1st in the NW out of only 12 submissions.
Cody 225 for 222/505 in the NW and 3972/9196 world wide
Matt got 223 for 186 out of 392 in the NW and 3,968 out of 8565.
We are off to a good start
Made up a workout with double KB swings, double KB squat clean thrusters and double KB snatches…I called it It Don’t Mean a Thing. I asked around as to what the title meant and nobody knew. Those in attendance were Cesar, Danielle, Matt and Ashley and Cesar said, “Well, it’s an oldie.” That was as close as anybody got. A definite age thing there. “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing do wop do wop do wop…” a 1931 song by Duke Ellington. It is the swing part that the workout is about because it is all about swinging a couple KB’s.
Cesar and Danielle came in for some lifting and Sifu Chris Clarke was in the house teaching the afternoon martial arts crew. Unique opportunity to learn from a first generation Dan Inosanto trained instructor.
