Monday was Squat cleans at 95lb with ring dips for sets 0f 21-15-9. Crossfit’s “Elizabeth”. 8:29 Workout is prescribed at 135, but after my last bout with that weight I decided to go lighter and work on form and feel. Still very draining. MetCon drainage. Got some downloads in (just picked up a ton of 80 & 90’s hip hop albums…taking me back. Good stuff like Jungle Bros., De La, Ice-T, Schooly D, Tribe, BDP, Organized Confusion and on and on..) …..and then some bath and beauty bar junk. a.Overhead press 95×6, 95×8, 105×8, 115×6 b.Reverse Fly, Barbell row, db bicep curl 40lb, 115lb, 30 lb x8 each x2 rounds c.db shrug, lat and front raise, short lat raises, side bicep curl 80lb, 20lb, 15lb, 35lb x8/10/20/8 two rounds Tuesday Squat cleans 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 135, 135, 155, 155 (fail), 135, 135, 135 A little later, did the CFE wod. 4 x 300 meter sprint, 5 minute rests 38, 39, 39, 39

Wednesday 12 Burpees 12 Pull ups 10 rounds for time. Pete and I did this one together, so we had to split pull rounds between the bar and rings. Ring pulls are much harder, so times were a bit slow. 21:28, 5 rounds each ring and bar.
Thursday 5k for time I mapped a course but ran into some construction so I went a bit farther than needed. 21:17 total time, probably crossed the 5k right around 20:00. Lots of nasty head wind. Last mile was tough, can go faster on a better course with some competition. Goal is sub 18:00.
Friday 4×400, 2 minutes rest between 0:59 0:59 1:01 1:01 Legs were very heavy from the four days previous. Carried through but had no pop.. Would like to hit these all sub 0:57
This hit my lower back in new ways. Levels of pain I have not felt before. No post workout soreness, just complete burnout during.
Tuesday 10 135lb Squat Cleans 50 GHD sit ups 8 Squat Cleans 40 Sit ups 6 Squat Cleans 30 Sit ups 4 Squat Cleans 20 Sit ups 2 Squat Cleans 10 Sit Ups
135 lb squat cleans are a new treat. Another Olympic movement that looks dangerous but is actually very beneficial. The strength, growth, progression and over all fitness I have felt since starting a regular Crossfit regiment has been pretty outstanding. These workouts are no walk in the park but the results are worth it, and the mind frame that you are forced to embrace while undertaking them is something else.
