My Training

Recently, I have been just starting to get back into training with higher volume. I had some lingering injuries from Rugby and CrossFit that I needed to let recover, so I listened to my body and let it heal quite a bit. Now I am starting to ramp up again. I focused extensively on strength over the last 6 months especially in the explosive components of the clean and the jerk, while still focusing on technique in the snatch. In addition, I have spent a lot of time back squatting, deadlifting and thrown in some bench press and a lot of pullups.

For the next 4-6 weeks I plan to work on my strength and strength-endurance and begin to incorporate in a lot of rugby specific skill and conditioning work. Here is a workout that I did a few days ago. I completed a hero WOD (Tyler: 5 rounds of {7 muscleups & 21 95# sumo deadlift high pulls}) with Bruce and Joe in the morning. I was stoked because I knocked it out in just under 21 minutes. Then I went away got lunch and trained with Ben in the afternoon and I went heavy on the clean & jerk because of the low rep scheme, but it hurt! 4 rounds of 185# Clean & Jerk, 8 Burpees, 12 Pushups, 16 Air Squats. I was a very disappointed with my pushups, but I have to remember that I did a lot of tricep lockout in my first work of the day. Anyway here is the video let me know what you think.

  1. For having done the workout you did at the start of the day i would be happy with this. Despite your pushups lagging a little your form looked great and pumped it out. 185# is looks like no joke.
