  • From the CrossFit Brand X forums, some advice for today’s workout:

    Today everyone is a Big Dawg. Here is a vid that shows the difference between the press, push press, and push jerk.

    If you are unfamiliar with the push jerk start slow and light work on your technique.


    I would add that if you don’t have a subscription to the CrossFit Journal (and really you should, it’s well worth it at $25/year for access to the entire archives), you can also check out a bunch of different Olympic lifting videos on for free right here:

    And remember, today’s when you’ll want to wear weightlifting shoes if you’ve got ’em (or at least Converse Chuck Taylors, NOT squishy, thick-bottomed sneakers). Wondering why? Read this:

  • Akash

    worked my way up to 155 before i failed at 165. This has been a rough stretch between snatch balances, presses, and now push jerk for my poor shoulders…

  • kevin p

    Thanks Adam! Serious inspiration right there from one of my favorite lifters. The great Kakhi Kakhiashvilis.
    To put it in perspective, he cleaned and push jerked 518pounds weighing less than 198 pounds in that clip.

    Best coach ever

    Question, I have a friend who wants to check out the 10am free class on Saturday, but wants to know if we have outlets for hair dryers in the bathrooms or shower areas. Do we have such accommodations??
