Muhammad Ali quote

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men
who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given
than to explore the power they have to change it.

Impossible is not a fact.  It’s an opinion.

Impossible is not a declaration.  It’s a dare.

Impossible is potential.

Impossible is temporary.

Impossible is nothing.”

-Muhammad Ali

Did you know 2012 is a "leap year"?  Either you did or you didn't, but those of you who pay attention to those details had to wonder if we would be doing any sort of leaping on this unusual day.

Well, here's some things I had in mind for today:

  • DU
  • Box jump
  • JPU
  • Broad jump
  • Hurdle

But I had some requests for burpees...CrossFit Games style.  That means as many as you can do in 7 minutes.

You'd think that would be enough for one day, but we should end with a bit of Oly:

Typically known as "Grace" to the CF community, clean and jerk 135 pounds thirty times.  But I don't like the "ground to overhead" heavy metcon as it's become.  I prefer to do Oly with as close to perfect technique everytime.  Screw the clock.

So, that's how we'll finish the hour.  Clean and jerk thirty times at about 60 to 70 percent of your 1RM.  Shoot for two per minute, but don't sacrifice technique.  Rate each lift.

Easy day.

  • Pistols x10 (five each leg - use straps, bands or grasp hands)

Elevated deadlift:  Use a box to raise yourself up 4-6" or use 25# steel plates as the largest diameter plate.
  • 3-3-3-2-2-2-1-1-1

  • Row 500m
