This is my 20 rep max attempt for the challenge Noah Ohlsen @nohlsen put on Instagram (3/23/15) for the heaviest 20RM deadlift. After warming up and getting close to a one-rep max, I went back down to 255lbs., an amount I thought I might be able to get 20 reps out of but I fell short at 14. I gave it another shot but unfortunately got 6 reps on my second try! This was a fun challenge though because it so happened to be on a day I was deadlifting!
I attempted the 15.4 CrossFit Open Workout today. I did the scaled version of the workout because I can’t do hand stand push-ups yet! Here’s a little clip I posted to Instagram.
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 8 minutes of:
10 push presses
Men push press 95 lb. and clean 115 lb.
Women push press 65 lb. and clean 75 lb.
Total rounds completed: 5
Total reps completed: 100
This is a short film from sometime around 2002-2004. I recently found the only copy of this I own, I had completely forgot about it! There was no audio on the DVD I found, the assignment might have been to make a silent movie with sound effects, or that may be have been the intention because since there was no dialogue, I’m assuming that was the plan. So here’s the edited version with sound effects, the original copy is 4 minutes 8 seconds long; here I cut it down, did minor color correction, and got rid of some jittery frames. Enjoy!
Finally making some minimal gains on my clean and jerk. I’ve been stuck for months cleaning at 225lbs and got up to 235lbs today. I probably could’ve split jerked it, instead of trying to press it. Checkout the clip below that was posted to Instagram.
