Posts Tagged ‘Workout 11.3’

Team CrossFit Lakewood is at it again, this time with the third workout of the 2011 CrossFit Games Open.
One more time, the workout was as many reps in 5 minutes as possible of 165lb/110lb Squat Clean and Jerks.

Two heats of athletes lifted on Saturday, and the energy was high! Check out the video below and see how much fun we have together. Great job, team. Let’s keep it up! WE’RE HALFWAY THERE!

*****Highlight of the day for me*****
Drew Vance, aka Dru-Tang, hit a HUGE personal record for his Clean and Jerk today meeting the prescribed weight of 165lbs. He then went on and did it 3.5 more times! AWESOME!

Then on Sunday I decided that I had a few more reps in me, so I wanted to give it another go. A HUGE thank you to Megan for being willing to head to the gym to be my official judge/counter. (I ended up getting 4.5 more reps then attempt #2!)

New questions from Megan, UN-suggestions from Casey and great advice from Molly King.

A pretty productive little Drive Time! 🙂

Tuesday night, Workout #3 of the 2011 CrossFit Games Open was released, and reactions are mixed in the CrossFit Community.

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 5 minutes of:
Squat clean (165lb / 75kg) / Jerk (165lb / 75kg)

One rep would basically just mean the athlete was able to Squat Clean the weight, but not lock it out overhead. This means that each “Round” is a successfully completed Squat Clean done any way (Squat Clean, Power Clean to Front Squat, etc) followed by a Jerk (Shoulder to Overhead, really). There will be a lot of people out there that at least start off with a Full Squat Clean Thruster.

Here’s our very own Greg Walker showing you all what a Squat Clean Thruster looks like. Keep in mind he weighs 152 pounds, but he’s throwing 165 pounds over his head like it’s nothing. WHAT A BEAST!!

IMPORTANT NOTE on Range of Motion and Judging:
At the top of the jerk movement, the barbell needs to be in line with the athlete’s HEELS. Make sure we’re not counting reps that are locked out in front of the toes!
