Squat and Double Unders/Power Cleans 11-30-08


185 1 x 5
200 1 x 5
215 1 x 5
235 1 x5 (PR)

Then with no rest moved right into:

5 Rounds for time:

10 Double Unders
5 Power Cleans 135lbs


Very slow time because I suck at Double Unders.  I think I'm ready to do Grace as Rx'd.  The hardest part will be jerking the weight, not cleaning it.  I'm guessing I'd end up with a time just under 10 minutes.  I'll have to try it and see.  Was thinking of doing 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 Double Unders with 5 Power Cleans done after each set of DU's, but that would have taken waaay too long.  I didn't have much time to workout today at all.  Caught some late paper at work.  So I basically rolled out of bed into my lifting shoes and started squatting.  Almost didn't workout because of the time crunch, but I'm glad I forced it in there.  Another PR in my steady march upwards with squats.  Did I mention I suck at DU's?  Note to self:  Don't suck at DU's.  Practice them and get good.

Or, you could be like GD and say: "no . . . "

:-) I myself intend on practising double unders just so I can be better than him at some crossfit thing even if it's one of the dippy things . . .

Yeah too bad its not something hardcore like mastering muscelups or heavy Overhead Squats. I'll join you on your pursuit to best the beast that is Jeff, even if its in one small area. Then we can really show him by challenging him to a double dutch duel and insult his manhood if he doesn't compete. Because obviously thats a very manly challenge. Right? He wouldn't dare say no, would he?

We better not let Buddy Lee (Olympic Wrestler) hear us say its dippy and unmanly, he might suplex us onto our domes. shhhhhh

Nice work on the squats... I'm going to have to try and one up your 1x5 when I'm able to (meaning you better keep working on it :-) )!

I wish I could work on my double unders, let alone my single unders! Haha.

Oh I'll keep working on the squats. No doubt about that. I squat every week with the program I'm on now.
