Ugly 2 pood kettlebell snatches this morning!  I powered through it though!  Tough WOD:

10 Minute AMRAP

  • 10 Ring Dips
  • 5 Kettlebell Snatches per Arm (70/53)

Got away with 6 complete rounds plus 5 Ring Dips.  Felt pretty good about it because those snatches were ridiculous!     However, this wasn’t really the best thing from this mornings training session.  I PR’s my Front Squat 3 Rep Max by 5lbs.  I got 225lbs!!  Two red plates!  Remember this post where I said, “Next Time?”  Continuing to get stronger.  Love it!

It’s Friday, so here are some updates from our friends around the web…

First, another new Barbell Shrugged with guest Paul Eich, owner of Crossfit Fire of the Gods.  They cover some great information on diet/nutrition specifically for performance.  Check it out:

Also, check out the newest blog post by Ashley Bledsoe from Faction Strength and Conditioning where she tells us about her first Crossfit experience.

That’s about all I’ve got for today.  Have a great weekend!!  Lift something heavy, go for a long run, or both!!
