Attempting to split jerk 225lbs for the first time. When performing the clean I need to work on getting under the bar more and do less pulling with my arms. I felt like I was almost able to get the bar up into the split jerk position but fell short on my attempts.
Completed 118 Reps. 70 Total Burpees, 48 Total Snatches. The rules went as followed:
Proceed through the sequence below completing as many reps as possible in 17 minutes of:
75 pound Snatch, 30 reps
135 pound Snatch, 30 reps
165 pound Snatch, 30 reps
210 pound Snatch, as many reps as possible
This WOD was inspired by Pat Barber and Wes Piatt from a video of their workout posted on CrossFit.com | Checkout that video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiyrDMhszUc
Below is the instructions for the WOD:
With a continuously running clock complete 5 thrusters every minute.
From 0:00-5:00 use 75lbs.
From 5:00-10:00 use 95lbs.
From 10:00-15:00 use 115lbs.
Continue adding 20lbs. every 5 minutes for as long as you are able.
I completed 75 total thrusters in 15 minutes. This was fun, I look forward to doing it again in the future!
Practicing the snatch at a light weight of 90lbs tonight. I need to work on this some more!
Working on a 1 rep max deadlift tonight. 405lbs is my 1 rep max deadlift as of September 2014. It's crazy what a difference 5lbs can be! Tonight I failed but it's all a part of the process, or should I say progress?
I’ve been doing this workout in variation 3 times now over the past 2 months. My last time was 12:43. This time I got 12:18 — a little bit faster but I was completely out of gas by the 2nd round. I skipped breakfast and did this WOD right in the middle of the day -- I'm thinking the empty stomach, and 80 degree weather might have been the problem! Trying to get under 10 minutes on this at some point. Until next time…
2 Rounds For Time (my time was 12:18):
1st round - 20 kettlebell swings (35lbs), 40ft dumbbell lunges (35lbs), 20 box jumps at 24”, 20 clean and jerks (135lbs).
2nd round - 10 kettlebell swings (50lbs), 40ft dumbbell lunges (50lbs), 10 box jumps at 24”, 10 clean and jerks (150lbs).

I love video editing and I enjoy working out daily, so occasionally I put together videos of my workouts on Instagram @RaymondRoman. Creating these quick 15 second videos for Instagram is fun, and also a good way to look back at progress I make overtime. Checkout some of the recent videos below!
