Crossfit Open 13.4
Well it’s four down, and one to go. For 13.4 it was:
Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes following the rep scheme below:
135 pound Clean and jerk, 3 reps
135 pound Clean and jerk, 6 reps
135 pound Clean and jerk, 9 reps
135 pound Clean and jerk, 12 reps
If you complete 12, go on to 15, 18, 21, etc.
Since I saw names like Jason Khalipa, Rich Froning, Mikko Salo, and Daniel Tyminski, at the top of the leader boards, I thought this was going to be a workout for the bigger guys. But my strategy was to drop the bar and pick it up with little to no rest, and keep good form on the cleans and go straight into the push jerk. Also, push jerk, push jerk, and push jerk. I never fell back to any other forms of the press. It was a little slower on the start, but I ended up doing better then I expected and hit 85! I also wore my chucks (All purpose Crossfitting shoe) which helped me stay comfortable and knock out those toes to bar pretty quickly. My heavier weight lifting shoes might have taken a toll down the line.
Anyway… it went well. Four down, one to go!
