Today I made Outlaw training of yesterday. Well, actually just Olympic lifting part, because I could not get access to the rings due to WOD in the box (they used them for ring push ups). Istead of that, I made Elite Fit conditioning of my gym together with my team partner which is my biggest competitor so far. I beat her only by 10sec, simply because my push press was faster.


1) Snatch: 3X1 @ 80%, 2X1 @ 85%, 2X1 @ 90%, 5X1 @ 80% – rest 60-90 sec. between each rep through sets of 90%, then 30 sec. between each rep at 80%

I based the lifts on 115#, though my maximum is 110#. GFot everything with no problem at all. 105# first snatch was a bit press out, but the second one went super nice and smooth.

2) Clean & Jerk: 3X1 @ 80%, 2X1 @ 85%, 2X1 @ 90%, 5X1 @ 80% – rest 60-90 sec. between each rep through sets of 90%, then 30 sec. between each rep at 80%

Based on 145#. My jerk is coming back after not feeling confident for a while finally I feel the drive.


Handstand push ups
Push press@65#

Chest to bar pull ups
Sumo deadlift high pulls
Time: 6:57min.


8.12.12 and Ring Muscle-Ups

I forgot to write down or download Outlaw workout today, so I was left with no workout from Outlaw, just did Blackbox WOD. I intended to reach snatch 1 RM max., but stayed at the same 110#. However, these 110# now become everyday thing rather than something hard to achieve, which means that soon I should pass this limit.

Skills : Score = 6RM
6 Front squats @ Max
Time cap = 8 minutes
Result: 80kg. Intended to do 85kg, but after 4 reps I could not continue. However, 80kg=176# 🙂

WOD : 2 Rounds
30 Mountain climbers
15 Db Sotts press @15#

3 Rounds
20 V-Sit tuck
10 Toes to bar

4 Rounds
10 Burpees over the bar
5 Sumo deadlift @100kg
RESULT: 9:39mins. I consider this easy workout, hardest part was simply to keep doing those burpees, but other than than….I almost did not need to rest.

for 15mins:
1min. plank
20 abs in a minute
That was nice workout. I could feel my abs a bit burning, but did not find it difficult. Somehow felt super strong today.

After that I was helping my team mate with HSPU and Muscle Ups progressions, because we signed up for the competition. My first competition:
Feel super excited about that! However, there is job to be done and my biggest concern so far were muscle ups. And I got them! TODAY. my first muscle ups, totally unexpected, could not be happier…Made one, went to anounce all my friends….came back…made second one to be sure that I actually got this. I do! How cool is that? I call is my 9 months of crossfit “baby”. It took me 9 months to be able to make first muscle ups. But I know that now it will become easier and easier, because if I get something once, then I keep just adding volume.
It’s such a nice feeling….I think I`m gonna make Double layer fudge to celebrate that 🙂

5.12.12 & new PR

I did it yesterdays Outlaw WOD today and todays will do tomorrow as finally I don’t feel sick, which happened to me yesterday.
Intended to cover some of Saturday with 1RM snatch and 1 RM front Squat. Had idea to do C&J as well, but changed my mind due to the lack of time.

1RM snatch stays the same: 110#
1RM Front Squat: 203# (90kg+5#) – 17# PR since 6th October!!!

Super happy about that….did not expect it, especially having in mind that I did not feel that strong at all.

WOD 121204:

BB Gymnastics

1) 7X1 3 Position Snatch (low to high) – heaviest possible, rest 60 seconds, DEMO VIDEO

100# (missed third snatch)/ 3×95#/ 3×100# (even though I don’t improve weights in snatch, I feel much much stronger…100# seems like nothing for the first 2 positions, a bit sketchy with 3rd one, that’s way did not go higher).
2) 7X1 3 Position Clean + 1 Push Jerk (low to high) – heaviest possible, rest 60 seconds

125/125 (missed last clean)/2×120/125/2×130 (again…to clean 130# first two positions was super easy, was worried about my jerk, but decided to be firm and directly go under bar, without hesitations. That worked.


1) Back Squat: 1X8 @ 70%, 1X5 @ 80%, 1X3 @ 85%, 3X2 @ 90% – rest as needed.

Based on 230#.  1×8@160#, 1×5@185#, 1×3@195#, 3×2@205#.


2) Front Squat: 7X2 @ 70% – rest exactly 40 seconds (based on 121201).

Based on 200#! 140# Front Squats went smooth and easy, went all possible way down.


8 minute AMRAP of:

8 Ring Dips
16 KBS 32/24kg

Did not do as ran out of time. Had to go really fast to the meeting that I was already late to. Thanks to my friend from box, I got a lift and wasn’t late!

Overall, very nice day….
