The Longest Crossfit Workout in a while

Today I did Saturday’s workout from the main Crossfit site, it looked fun:

Seven rounds for time of:
– 95 pound Power snatch, 7 reps
– 95 pound Snatch balance, 7 reps
– 95 pound Overhead squat, 7 reps

95lb doesn’t compute too well to kg, and at the last minute I had an inkling that it could be harder than it looked (the rafts of DNFs on the main site was the hint!) so I plumbed for 40kg, which is exactly 1/2 my body weight at the moment.

I’m glad I did, man that sucked! Lifting half body weight over head 147 times was never going to be easy, and do to resting after each exercise, I actually ended up doing 7 more Snatches (to get the bar up for the OHSs). It was a pretty poor time of 32:55 and I was whacked at the end. That’s the longest Crossfit workout I’ve done in a while.

    looks like a great workout. I think the hardest one I ever did was 7 clean and jerk, 7 pull ups, 7 push ups. that was rough and a long one 135 on clean isn’t always the easiest.

    Hi Gil, yeah your version would suck too, especially at 135lbs for the C&J.
