>I’m gonna preface this one by saying this is THE CRAZIEST Squat I’ve ever seen, that ended without a trip to the hospital. I’m not gonna debate whether it should count or not, but I will say this—if Cam didn’t have great position coming up out of the hole, he’d have been a dead man.

  1. Cameron is f**kin’ cheating! You can’t count that hand assisted debacle as a good rep! lol
    Nice work though bud, glad you hit 5, you’ve had it coming for a while.

  2. Are we going to need our front squat maxes for the Hatch? Cause I have absolutely no clue what mine is anymore, it’s been awhile since I have tested it last and I don’t remember what it was.

  3. Christine drankiewicz said your looking for data, previous PR 405#, new PR 435#. That’s what’s up.

  4. HBBS went from a sloppy 425 to a rock bottom ass to grass 435. got half way up with 445 and had to bail

  5. First time posting, but I’ve been following the Outlaw Way for about 6 months now.

    Previous PR: 270
    Today: 315

  6. Am I the only one that did not PR post Smolov Cycle? I was about 20#’s shy. Not sure if it was an off day or if my legs were still smoked?

  7. Hey guys, how do you plan this 20 min to establish 1RM Snatch and CJ?
    Normal warmup and then?
    2 – 4 sets at 70 – 90% and then try to hit previous PR or you go straight to a new PR?

  8. Dear outlaw,
    I really like what you’re doing to my body. And my appetite.
    Sincerely,
    Ex-marathoner.

  9. I am the owner of True Strength CrossFit and we decided to follow Outlaw for everyone, with scales where needed. My comp team is competiting this weekend so they are gonna max next week. I have a life time best of over 600lbs(I’m a former world class 100meter sprinter) but my pre Smolov was 405 and I dropped a smooth 450 today at 209 bw. I will have more of my athletes start posting to help u out Coach. Thanks for the quality programming.

  10. Heyo, I skipped the C&J this morning cuz i’ve have some tightness in my tricep when I go over 205#(worked it out and letting it heal for 48 hours).

    Snatch: 165# (20# PR!!!)
    Fran: 3:56 (Beat my previous afghan PR by 40 sec!)

    #TheOutlawWayCurrahee

  11. 10# PR, Old HBBS – 365 New HBBS – 375
    I based the whole Smolov template 360# went up 15# week 2 and 10# week 3.

    Big thing i’ve noticed is that I can snatch 220#/100kg consistently.

  12. @Chris – I had a problem with my squat today too. I tied my old PR of 295 but didn’t get past that. This week was a bad week for me with sleep, not getting more than 6 hours each night. I think I might attempt it again. Coach or anyone recommend when a good time to reattempt?

  13. Funny and entertaining as it is to watch. And that guy is obviously extremely close to getting it, but, NO WAY does that count!!

  14. Snatch) 110kg, 5kg under

    C&J) 142.5kg, 2.5kg PR

  16. Snatch today 97.5kgs (pr 100.) New pr on c+j tho122.5kg so up twice in a week. Fran went nasty as usual 3:38 at 110kg bdywt…

  17. Two former Vulture Crossfit coach’s make it to the outlaw page for squatting.. I’m so proud, maybe one day I can make it there, I just need to get stronger, faster, tougher, smarter and better that’s all! Bagram Outlaw out…

  18. 1) 245 (-15)
    2) 305 (-10)
    C) 2.50

    … Going to forget today even happened! 405# back squat … 3 years of waiting! I’m celebrating with ice cream!

    Vulture for life

  26. Am I the only fag on here who only adds 5# pr’s. why won’t my legs get stronger I’ve done smolov, catalyst all kinds of programs and only lil jumps I only squat 360 wtf?

    • I used to have that problem as well, I read up on jtsstrength that one powerlifter there suggested that instead of using all time maxes for training weights you use a 365 strong max that you know you can lift anyday. I PR’d yesterday at 395 but I know I couldn’t do it any old day. I do know I could squat 365 any day no matter how sick or sore however so I’ll be using that for hatch cycle. Your 365 strong will be anywhere from 90-95% of your ‘comp’ max.
      Also don’t think your a pussy for wussing out and using lighter weight. Yes the weights will feel light some days, resist the urge to load up and grind it out. As much as squats are slow lifts you want to lift every squat like your ass is on fire. Accelerate through the ENTIRE lift. Don’t ever lift slow. Some guys go for as heavy as possible all the time and their squats are always slow. You will not squat heavy training that way. Constant acceleration, pop the bar off your back, keep it light enough to have impeccable form but heavy enough to get a response. Remember, we are training not competing, resist the urge to feel like you have to post numbers here that will impress everyone and load it up all the time.
      I spent a year on outlaw near when it started and put 2.5kg on my snatch, I went too heavy all the time. Even on Saturdays treat them like a training day. Don’t go for your personal best every Saturday unless the frying pan is sizzling. Hit daily maxes and always have good form. Don’t throw around weights close to your PB and have shit form every Saturday just to try and get that PR. Allow yourself to have crap days and spend time drilling with daily max weights.
      That’s working for me, hope you can pull something out of that you like and will help you. Don’t get discouraged, training is a lifelong pursuit. Sometimes your flying sometimes the bar mocks you but don’t ever quit and you’ll be bull strong.
      Stay up.

    • Maybe try to stop using outdated slang terms. I have a gay member who smokes u with a 395#pr at 195lb body weight. Grow up brother!

      • Zurba if that hurt your feelings you might not wanna look at the comment section. Just a term that you yourself have used. Relax.

      • +1. It’s an extremely offensive term to a lot of people. Because of that, would it be such a big deal to use another dirty word such as “pussy, cocksmoker, douche, cockwhore??” Replacing it in your sentence, in a non-offensive way, sounds like this. “Am I the only bitchtittiedfreak on here that prs……” And now you’ve offended no one and still got your point across.

        • I don’t know, this blog is getting pretty sensitive. I wouldn’t be surprised if some angry woman with a botched boob-job might take offensive to your using “bitchtittiedfreak” as a pejorative.

  30. BBG
    1) 185, 195f felt soon good – next time
    Tweaked my shoulder – hopefully nothing serious

  31. Good and bad day today…
    I snatched up to my old pr then went for a new pr and my spine couldn’t take yesterday’s spinal loading plus today. So I’m bummed about calling today but happy I went as far as possible yesterday in the department of spinal load.

  32. Beginning of cycle 355 ,after first week did 360 at a comp and today 385. Pr’d c&j to 280 previous to 265. I also pr’d to 205 snatch from 200 at beginning of cycle. Thanks Rudy!

    C&J: 275 (+10 PR) greedy/dumb move, went to 290 right after. F on jerk.

  39. I’ve never posted on here. I do Outlaw programming via LoboLifting at CrossFit Queens in New York. Just wanted to holla at folks who survived the Smolov cycle. I PR’d my 1RM HBBS @ 315# (15# PR from February) yesterday and today I was like fuck it and I PR’d my 1RM Deadlift @ 405# (15# PR from April). I weigh 150#.

    Shoutout Rudy and Nicolas Lobotsky and Smolov the sneaky Russian.
    Peace.

  40. BBG:
    1. 225#. missed 250# four times
    2. 265#. jerk still isn’t powerful with ankle (yes I’ll say this evertime so stfu)

    Conditioning:
    2:37 which is a 5 second PR

  41. Snatch-185# (-15#) Missed 205 a few times, just wasn’t aggressive enough on the pull to get it back over my heels.
    C&J- 235# (-20#)
    Fran-5:03

  42. BBG:
    1. 215# (PR-225#)… been stuck at this range for about 2 months now… beyond frustrating.
    2. 265# (PR-280#)… could have went up possibly another attempt… but FRAN!

    COND:
    2:32…. only a 1:39 PR. Previous was 4:11.

  43. BBG:
    1) 185, 195M, 200M
    2) up to 225 and missed
    Conditioning:
    4:25
    Tight from yesterday making my footwork junk and for a painful Fran.

  44. BBG:
    1. 155lbs snatch, not so good
    2. 235lbs clean and jerk, not so good either
    Conditioning:
    3:13 16 second PR (this was good) legs felt stronger and my hips really helped on the thrusters. The olympic lifting and squatting has really helped me.

  45. BBG:
    1) 185# (under 190#- couldn’t lock out)
    2) 240# (couldn’t jerk 255#, PR’d @ 250# on 7/9)
    Fran- 2:37 Rx (10s PR)

  46. BBG: F’ing terrible today
    Fran: 4:15 which is a PR by a lot but my shoulders r definitely the limiting factor today so still disappointed

  47. Just getting back into the swing of things following a couple vacations and inconsistent training. Bummed I missed Smolov but looking forward to the Hatch program.

    BBG:
    1) 255 lbs (2 lb PR)

    2) Skipped

    Conditioning:

    Coming off a shoulder dislocation and biceps tendon tear and finally starting to add some weight back on the olympic lifts and overhead. I look forward to more of the Outlaw Programing!

  50. Snatch 245 C&J 300 both 10# pr
    Fran 2:30 (couldn’t get my pull up timing right) PR by 26 seconds

  51. 1. 130 (+5 PR)
    2. DND
    3. 5:09 (1:30ish PR) *Literally UB Thrusters totaling 1:25… Pull-ups sucked that bad!

    Snatch- warmup went like this:
    Drills from the hip, full extension up.
    2×2@65, 2×1@85,
    1@105- nailed,
    1@115- nailed,
    1@125- nailed.
    I am GREAT up until my max. Failed 130 three times before I made the ugliest save and got it up. wtf..

  52. 1. 135 (20# PR)
    2. 185 (15# PR)
    3. 8:10 (PR) Last time I did Fran it was a DNF
    Felt strong today, especially after having a great Snatch PR with good form. Rudy is truly a bearded wizard.
    -Looking forward to Hatch, Strong Legs=Strong Oly

  53. 1) Up to 140# (-25#) Felt really strong and fast up to 130#. Then it all went downhill.
    2) 220# Clean and jerk (5#pr) and 242# clean (9# PR) SO although i didn’t hit a back squat PR yesterday, i have Pr’d my clean by 15# in two weeks. The smolov definitely helped.

    3) Fran: Im going to give this a whirl tomorrow.

  54. M/17/155#

    Lots of grip issues today due to boating/tubing yesterday, hands/forearms were fried. 10 minutes to max cause of an obligation this morning

    1.175# (ties PR)
    2. 205# (-20, failed 225# four times)
    3. 5:48 (never taken time before)

    This day just made me want to puke.

  55. The PRs from last week still stand.
    Snatch: 185# (failed 3x at 190#)
    CJ: 230# (failed 2x at 235#. Nailed the squat clean both times though, which is a PR and nice.)

    FRAN: I did 15 thrusters and decided I was too tired from the snatch and CJ. So I stopped the clock and started to put my stuff away. Then convinced myself to grow a pair and I finished it up without a clock. What would that say about me if I quit FRAN after all that work!!?

  56. M/30/5’9″/173#/Boston

    BBG
    Snatch:160# (5lb PR)..failed at 165# twice

    Form and power felt great

    “Fran” 5:40…. yea I got some work to do!

  57. snatch no pr, tried 90kg twice, technique is the problem here, not strength. Jumping back & catching forward = miss
    Clean & Jerk – cleaned 100kg, missed the jerk…was too tired.

    Fran: 5:45 – exactly same time as 2 months ago -_-

    Today was a new day with a 185lb snatch

    Deadlift: 420->475
    Front Squat: 305->350#

  60. snatches up to 90 and felt way solid, a little trigger shy at 95 but the bar is getting up to my eyes. C&J stayed light and worked on super solid landing in split jerk – up to 105

    Fran Rx 4:59 – PR by 1:30+

      C&j- same shit with my shoulder bothering me on the jerk and me being noncommittal

      Fran- 2:59! Boooooom old PR 3:21

    Definitely need rest day.

    Due to inadequate facilities here on vacation at a cabin retirement fitness center in TN, I was unable to perform the BBG. However, I was able to do the following:

    20 mins for 1RM OHS: 195#; 30# PR from 21.4.13 (prior to following Outlaw) – F@ckin’ stoked!!!

    Fran: 4:50; 0:15 PR from 13.2.13 (prior to Outlaw as well)

    What’s weird and what sucks is, I was able to get to Rd 2 for Open 13.5, meaning a sub-4 Franish-type workout. However, I was unable to get sub-4 here. Any reason as to why I seem to be back @sswards?!?

  79. Snatch – 165 – have a scapula mobility issue i’m working on. no confidence that I can throw a bar up overhead and catch it at this point
    C&J – 250# – PR. Also a squat clean PR of 255, missed the jerk.
    Fran – 4:56 – PR. Prior PR was 5:09

  80. Didn’t do the snatch or C and J today… still stuck at 225# for the snatch, and hit 301# earlier this week on the C and J.

    Fran: 2:35 (8 second PR)

  81. Snatch 195# (10# pr)
    Clean and jerk 265 (10# pr)
    Fran 2:38. 25 sec pr
    Great day. Thank you outlaw.

  82. Did Fran for the first time first (only time I had a pull up bar available to me – awful idea) – 7:21

    1) Did snatch practice at 85#
    2) couldn’t get above 125# (PR is 155#)

    Completely spent after Fran! Rough day
