Forgot to mention that I went Snowboarding for two days over the weekend at Bear Valley in the Sierras. Not too shabby of a view:
Treated myself today with some personal coaching. My cousin and I drove over to San Francisco Crossfit and got an hour and a half of coaching from Adrian Bozman. He's super sharp and an excellent coach, not to mention a firebreathing crossfitter himself. Worked on deadlifts and snatches. Learned a few good cues for each lift that I'll start integrating. Then he ran us through a short metcon of 8 rounds each of tabata (20 sec work, 10 sec rest = 1 round) 5 yard shuttle runs and pushups. It was as usual much more brutal then it sounds. Thankfully I didn't keep track because those pushups got pretty pathetic. Jerrod and I had a great time at SFXfit, and I highly recommend seeking out a good coach to help you work through new lifts/weaknesses that you might have. Amazing how fast it accelerates the learning curve. No replacement for good coaching! Thanks Boz!!
Then came home, had dinner and on a whim joined Josh and Alex in a search for a new 1 rep max...
120 x 5
135 x 3
155 x 1
175 x 1 (PR + 10lbs)
185 x 1 (PR +20lbs)
Max 53lb Kettlebell Snatchs in 5:00 min: 85
Boy was that a suckfest. Probably did too much volume today, but oh well it was fun.
