Push Press, Floor Press Box Jump/KB Snatch/Pullup 7-19-10

Went to the 2010 Crossfit Games in Carson, Ca this weekend. Had a great time hanging with the Brand-X crew. Got to meet Metric and TexasPatrick from the Brand-X forum who've I've known via the internet for the last 2.5 years. Had a blast with them and catching up with the others who I haven't seen in a year. Enjoyed the Games and saw some impressive performances. Congrats to all who made it that far and put on a fierce competition.

As RX'd from Crossfit Football is with 100m sprint instead of box jumps, 5 rounds, and 70lb KB. I scaled/modified it to fit my needs. Box jumps were done with all of feet on the box. Had a few pressouts on the Snatch especially in the last round. Was a potent little screamer. Best of all this is the first metcon I've beat Dan in probably 10 months. He finished in 7:29 largely due to an inability to get all of his large feet onto the box. Still a good job of pushing hard.

Knee is getting better but still not 100%. Felt it while doing OHS with dowel.

Nice performance on the metcon tonight. Damn my clown feet, and my own standards for a stupid box jump!

haha Thanks man. It was nice of you to do twice as much work and allow me to beat you for once.
