Sectionals WOD 2

Front Squat

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 15 minutes of:
9 Deadlifts (155lbs / 70kg)
12 Push-ups
15 Box jumps (24″)

We will have two heats of the workout tomorrow, one during the strength portion of the WOD and one during the normal WOD time.  If you would like your score validated, you can can skip the strength and pair up with someone in class that is qualified to judge.  Otherwise, you will get your shot on Saturday.  These will be the only two opportunities that you will be given to complete the WOD.  You must watch the standards video before judging or competing.

    Um… I don’t know what happened… I meant to post the comment above in the previous blog post but I somehow screwed it up and I’m not able to delete it. Grrr. Sorry!

    I was also eating paleo before the challenge but, like for Amy, the challenge has motivated me to stop cheating so much. Like Alec, I’ve also been tinkering things a lot to see what works best. Oh, and I’ve also tried a whole bunch of new kinds of meat, which has been fun. 🙂

    GTG work is really awesome, but I’m not sure how much strength you could gain in the pushup between now and Saturday. I don’t want anyone to do so many pushups before Saturday for practice that their chests/tris/shoulders are burned out on Saturday. 10 reps here and there for practice doesn’t sound too bad though.

    Long term though, GTG is a great way to work on a specific movement as long as you’re not doing so many reps you get overuse injury (I tried doing 350pushups a day a couple of years ago- I had a very sore elbow at the end of one month- too many reps!)

    My sentiments exactly, Goose. If anyone is looking to try to improve their push-ups before Saturday, I’d suggest reading this article by Pavel. “Greasing the groove” is a really cool principle and it’s effective, too. I’ll be doing 10 push-ups every time I leave my desk this week.

    Jaime, that extra CTB practice you did may still come in handy. This is only week 2 of the sectionals…
