I want to take this opportunity to thank Katie and Brad from River North CrossFit for hosting date #2 of the “DOOMSDAY” World Tour. I think I speak for the entire Outlaw staff when I say; the participants, facility, and city itself could not have given us a better weekend. Thank you guys for your sweat, participation, and attention—not even an army of underfed ambulators could keep everyone from learning how to make Jesus proud.
Uhhhhh… I don’t even really know what to say on this one. If I had to put it into perspective, just off hand, I’d put it in the top 3 most impressive Outlaw lifts ever.
Drew Anderson – 525# High-Bar Back Squat:
Kevin Simons – 335# Clean & Jerk:
Jessica Rodriguez – 255# Front Squat @ 116# BW:
1) Snatch: 2X2 @ 70%, 2X1 @ 75%, 2X1 @ 85%, 2X1 @ 90%, 4X1 @ 75% – rest 60-90 seconds for the sets through 90%, rest 30 seconds between reps for the final set.
2a) 3X5 Snatch Hi-Pulls – heavier than last week, rest 60 sec.
Notes: The finish of the movement should be at or near chest height. If this is not possible, lower the load.
2b) 3X5 Non-Heaving Drop Snatch – heavier than last week, rest 60 sec.
Notes: Feet start in the receiving position. There should be no upward movement of the barbell. Drop, and press yourself down with the bar.
12 Minutes Chest Facing Wall Handstand & Shoulder Touch Practice.
Notes: The goal is to get into and maintain the handstand with exclusively the nose and feet in contact with the wall. If you can get into and maintain the handstand within these parameters begin to try to some shoulder touches. Do not let your hands or nose drift away from the wall while performing shoulder touches. It is imperative that a hollow body position be maintained for this drill. Obviously, do not allow the desire to keep your nose on the wall end in injury—it’s not that serious.
3 rounds for total reps of:
1 minute ME HSPU
1 minute ME Front Squats 135/95#
1 minute ME Pull-ups
*Rest one minute between rounds.
