With a continuously running clock do one 135 pound Clean and Jerk the first minute, two 135 pound Clean and Jerks the second minute, three 135 pound Clean and Jerks the third minute… continuing as long as you are able.

Use as many sets each minute as needed.

Post number of minutes completed to comments.

  3. Lauren says:

    did Cindy at home today. 15 rounds (asst’d pullups) + 5 p/ups. 2 less than last time

  4. JT says:

    Did Cindy today – 12 rounds even. 4 off of my PR. All pull ups C@B and unbroken, push ups absolutely sucked after round 2, and all AS B2B (butt 2 ball) and unbroken. I don’t know if that makes me feel better or not but I have a feeling the first time I didnt do either of those things. Can’t wait for summer to be over so I can get off of this crappy diet, sleep cycle!

    I was surprised how this one got aweful so fast.

  9. klowe says:

    11 + 9 @ 135

    Form quickly broke down from nice clean and jerks to “sling it up and press”
    Next time 12 rounds is doable. Just gassed on the 12’s.

  19. Kerri says:

  21. Katie says:

  22. Katie says:

    Good article. Completely agree.

  23. Michael says:

    135#
    5 rounds + 4 or 5 half attempts, couldn’t lock out the jerks.

  24. Patrick says:

    Front Squats 5×3
    135wu – 185(4) – 185 – 185 – 185 – 185
    Back Squat Endurance set 1×15-20
    185(1) measly rep, talk about being a poon.

    Did this one alone in the HoboGym.
    Just not feeling it today, still a bit pooped even after taking 2 recovery days. 185(3) is 20lbs less than PR and it felt awfully heavy. Gave up completely on the 1×15-20 back squat.

  25. Katherine Berger says:

    85#
    7 rounds + 7 reps (that hurts)

    Still hungry as crap on the zone diet so I wonder if it helped or hurt…Russell said I looked pretty hungry during the workout 🙂

  26. Mitch says:

    WOD 115# 7+3

  27. Mandee Miller says:

    135# 7 rnds + 5 or 6 reps.

  29. Daniel says:

    Miserable 6 Round + 6 reps.

    Had 7 at the buzzer, but I was dead. Staying up late is killing my workouts, but I’m making money… Hmm. I almost want to make Crossfit my life, but my wife would kill me.

  30. Ashley says:

    First time doing anything like this… it was rough! 45# 7 Rounds + 4 Reps… It hurts… And Zak is whining too much about him hurting to massage me! =(

  31. Daniel says:

    While I don’t agree with many of the heath care reforms being proposed by congress right now, for Neal Boortz to blame skyrocketing heath care costs on obesity and the Democrats is just pandering and sensationalism.

    The rising cost of heath care is directly attributed to the absolute lack of direct competition and pricing pressures in the health care market. Consumers do not comparison shop on doctors, because they don’t have to. The majority of consumers do not pay the bill, insurance companies do; therefore, consumers don’t care what the doctors visit costs beyond what their co-pay is.

    Here is just one salient example of my point. I have several family members in the industry. One, my wife’s uncle, ran UNO Lakefront Hospital’s Radiology Department in New Orleans. According to him, pricing was never an issue. They simply charged what the other hospitals charged for the same procedure, thus pressuring Insurance Companies to pay the going rates set by this quasi-monopoly.

    The only pressure they felt was to keep buying the latest equipment or course at ever costlier prices. In one particular year they had to buy a new MRI to compete against the hospital down the road who just bought the newest, high-tech, machine that produced pictures marginally less grainy then their existing one. Even though their current machine was only 3yrs old, they had to keep up with the other hospital to impress the docs in the community to send patients to use their machine instead of a competitors. The docs in this example were acting as de-facto salesmen for the radiology department.

    So you can see the problem. The patient does not care what clinic he goes too just as long as the Ins. Co. pays. The docs have no incentive to send a patient to one clinic vs. another because the Ins. Co. pays. Then the hospitals compete for clients not by competing on lower prices, but by buying the newest, most expensive equipment that necessitates higher prices. So there is actually an UPWARD pricing pressure in this and many other sectors and aspects of the heath care industry!

    No government insurance program, socialized medicine or the status quo is going to fix this fundamental problem. Docs and clinics do not have to compete on price, and so prices will continue to rise! Congress might slow the upward price pressures, but they won’t stop it until competition is brought back into the market.

    Lasik eye surgery and plastic surgery are two of the very few medical specialties that must compete on price. They are competitive because insurance companies do not pay the tab. Individuals do. Women looking for new boobs will shop around for the best price per breast. Eye doctors routinely place newspaper ads announcing their “Low $/Eye!”. Why? Because they have to compete to get business.

    The solution? Consumers have to feel the pain in their pockets. Insurance should be modified to make them pay more than a $30 deductible for a $3000 procedure. “They can’t afford a $3000 procedure!” would be the complaint. Yes they would, because the docs, clinics and hospitals would lower the price to $1500 to get the work.

  32. Patrick says:

    Daniel,
    I hate to admit it, but there’s some truth in that first class FRAT.

  33. Russell says:

    Did we read the same blog? Boortz didn’t blame fat people for all skyrocketing healthcare costs, but a 6.4 to 9.1 precent jump is an obvious incre
    He also didn’t blame democrats, (though he should in my opinion) he just called their proposed tax a dumb idea, (which it is)
    As long as my premiums are based on the cost of taking care of people who won’t take care of themselves (smokers come to mind too), I’ll enjoy the FAT idea.

    9 Rounds as Rx’d

  35. Clint says:

    I would have to agree to an exten the article per this quote states “Obesity-related health spending has doubled in one decade to $147 billion. ” which in my eyes means our health care insurance premiums would go up. Who is that will pay for the added expense, I am positive it won’t be the insurance company losing money. I don’t blame the democrats they are just as done as the republicans I blame the healthy, cup cake eating sea of obese people floating around the country like a cancer. We as a country enjoy such excess that our poorest of poor people are obese. My experience with poor meant you didn’t have electricity, and perhaps went a day or two without a meal. This is just another example of solving a surface problem without fixing the root cause. I read a time line some where out there which stated if the trend continued which has so for the last 40 years, something like 100% of our nation will be obese in X number of years. I think it was 20. I guess the solution is raise gas prices to 20 dollars a gallon, and watch everyone walk and ride bikes to work.

  36. Clint says:

    FYI if i am getting my boobs replaced or laser surgery on my eyes (Frickin Lasers Bazzle) I am going to guarantee I might not be looking for the most competative price. I happen to be a real consumer I want the best care, nothing worse than a eye that sees worse or a crooked boobie.

  37. Daniel says:

    Crooked boobie. Lol.

    Yes they must have a good rep as well but all else being equal price is a factor.
