    as long as my neck’s better, i’ll help out.

    I’ll help on Friday at least, though I think it should say “Thursday, February 1” and “Friday, February 2nd”.

    there’s a great video on the national site of a guy doing the snatch.

    Doh! We fixed the dates. Good catch, Sam!

  5. Mike Minium January 24, 2007 at 4:57 am

    Yeah, J, that’s an awesome vid!

    “doing the snatch.” there’s gotta be a better way to say that.

    Oh yes, all these new terms: clean, jerk, snatch…

    they scare me. 😉

    Today I did three rounds of:

    5 shoulder press

    10 push press

    15 push jerk

    with 40# dumbbells

    15 dead-hang pullups

    It took 29:30 (multiple muscular failures every round)

    Just wait until we get you in a singlet, Maren.

    Nice workout Sam.

    Today was my first workout with handstand pushups. I want to do more with gymnastics basics. It was not only fun but is making me stronger!! Watch out!

    CrossFit: It’s all Jerks and Snatches…

    At least we’re clean…

    Max – Good one! Is there a tee shirt for sale with that saying on it?

    Mike – I have no idea what a singlet is, but I’m quite sure that it is VERY difficult. Speaking of difficult, I can barely move my arms today. And I can’t sit down without saying “ow”. I only worked out for about 30 minutes yesterday and it’s crazy how sore I am. I got sore from Jim’s boot camp but never THIS sore. But that was mostly cardio…

    go slugs!
