Snatch practice:

Find your maximal 1RM squat snatch, try to spend roughly about 20 minutes working on a very heavy squat snatch and if shoulder mobility has been one of your issues, don’t think so much about how heavy you can go, but think about how good your shoulder positioning is while performing this movement. Remember as begginers weight lifters, we have to make sure that your upper body and foot work is set up before you grip your bar, bend your knees down, shift your hips back to make sure knees are not passing the toes at lifting position and bring your torso down to grip the bar. You can practice your first pulls, by “jump and shrug” cues before you go on the pull under. Remember to keep your movements at a comfortable load without losing for form. Ask any of the coaches for tips and support on how to better up each time.


1RM SQUAT SNATCH (Snatch practice)


10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 POWER SNATCH MEN 135/95/65 WOMEN 95/65/45

in between each set of snatches and pull ups you must complete 30 double unders

your score will be total time.



As we all know, coach Becca will soon be delivering our second CrossFit child, ;) that means is time to celebrate together before she takes off for a few weeks until she is ready to be back, we will be hosting a party for her April 11th 2014 and it will be running from 5 pm until 7 or 8 pm, gifts will be appreciated but not necessary to come celebrate with us, she has a registry at TARGET and BUY BUY BABY in case you want to come with a gift on your hands. We will only be having a huge workout @ 4 PM and all people can stay to eat and drink with us, give coach becca some love before she has to go.

Skill warm up:

AMrAP in 7 minutes of:

Double unders.


We are working up to a heaviest high amount of reps in this workout, essentially on the bench press you are using the first set of 10′s and 5′s as warm up load, so make sure you don’t drive yourself to failure on the first sets. The last 3 sets of triple should come stronger and your arms and chest will be prepared to a heavy triple.

Bench Press


Work up to the heaviest triple, make sure to have a spotter with you in case you fail on a attempt.


3 rounds each for time of:

50 wall ball shots 20# 14# (pro division must have a high target you may use the beams)

rest 2 minutes between rounds.

your score will be, total double unders, your max bench press triple, and your fastest round. HAVE FUN!!



So the open is over and we wanna congratulate for those of you who participated and performed the workouts with us, thanks everyone for the support, now the question is: What is next? Keep training on those aspects that you hate the most, weather it is lifting heavy at a high amount of reps, or simply work constantly on you one, triple or five rep max on all your movements. Weather you are planning next year on advancing to regionals or weather you are looking forward to next years open, look back at your scores from this year and take notes, What do I need to work on?? is it strength? is it skills? or is it flexibility?? whatever the case is focus on setting up goals on how to excel to all your physical capacities. The biggest benefit of keeping score is the ability to then assess how to improve. Don’t waste this opportunity to do that!

Take the next few days to have fun too! If you have been missing certain elements of training that you haven’t done because of the Open…throw them back in! Play a little bit!

Today we had a special member come back into our FERZa family, this guy was my second member in the cherry creek area and had to leave us for a while for personal family conflicts. He is back and ready to be a great competition to the PRO’s division. Mike Inman welcome back.
On a separate tab we have changed the way we are laying out the workouts, there will be a scaled, a RX and a PRO’s division for male and females, all loads will assigned by the coaches and will have to stick to it until you can move up on your category. PRO division must have all loads and complete movements with a full range of motion, for example hand stand push ups must be performed on the ground without a an-mat pad under the head to qualify as a PRO competitor. RX may have a few modifications such as ring dips and padded HSPU and scaled division may have as many modifications as needed with the exemptions of the loads. If you have any questions please consult with any of the coaches.
