    From the CrossFit Brand X forums:

    Today, everyone is a Big Dawg. If you are unfamiliar with the movement pick a light weight and work on your technique.

    Here is a video of the Clean:

    Also, let me add that today is not the day to wear your running shoes. Weightlifting shoes are best, but low-top Chuck Taylors (or some other sort of hard-bottomed, flat shoe) will also work pretty well. If you don’t own either of those, then do the WOD in socks or Vibrams. Wondering why? Read this: http://www.hyperfitusa.com/hyperfit_usa/2009/11/finding-your-balance.html

    P.S.: I’ll be filling in for Kevin P. , the regular Sunday instructor, who’ll be competing on the clean & jerk in NJ (and the snatch, of course) at a Master’s Invitational. Let’s all wish him good luck!

    Also, I’ve tried the paleo hacks at Chipotle yesterday and Qdoba today.

    At Chipotle I got 3 servings of carnitas for around $8.25, after tax.
    At Qdoba, I got a side of shredded beef ($2.59), a side of steak ($2.99), a side of pork ($2.59), fajita veggies (peppers & onions, $0.89) and a side of guac ($1.69) for a total of $11.60 after tax.

    On a related note, you can also just go to Trader Joes and buy a bag of salad (5-7 oz.) and a chunk of pre-cooked carnitas (12 oz., 4 minutes to microwave) for less than $8 after tax.

    And still working on double unders and pull ups. Got 39 double unders in a row today, which is a big PR.

  • Elizabeth

    Allison taught a terrific class today! As a result, i maybe didn’t get very close to pr on the clean & jerk, but got a lot closer to doing them with half-way decent form. Thanks, ab!
