Crossfit Shifted

Feeling even better today. The head cold is finally getting better.    Todays WOD look particularly nastly especially the plate push.   Pushing a plate after Jerks and Pullups is never going to be easy.

21 Push Jerks (135/95)
21 Pull-Ups
50m Plate Push 45
15 Push Jerks (135/95)
15 Pull-Ups
50m Plate Push 45
9 Push Jerks (135/95)
9 Pull-Ups
50m Plate Push 45

Did the first round unbroken, Second Round I did 10 and 5 on Jerks and did Pullups unbroken and then in the last round I did 6&3 on Jerks.   I was probably a little conservative on the Jerks in terms of how I broke them up.    On the plate push I actually Squatted and slid it forward versus driving it like a sled.   This technique was much easier and didnt take the stuffing out of me before the Jerks.

Time - 10:18. Fastest time in the class. 

Very impressed with this girl who is new to Crossfit (4 months) on both her snatches yesterday and her Jerks today.  Very good technically and at the RX weight.  She is a former Pole Vaulter at ASU.   I think Ben Bergeron called it that Pole Vaulters movements translate well to Crossfit.
