Just a quick note, my numbers have gone up tremendously. I thought it would be hard for me to get a sub 3min Fran, never mind busting out a 2:27 with ease. Pulled out a 2:06 Diane and wasn't even tired. Simply amazing. and to think - we haven't even started the metcon yet! haha! 
A big thank you for your hard work. It is greatly appreciated!!! How can I get a CFNE tshirt over here in Norway? Maybe even one of those Built by Bergeron ones as well?

Reebok World Headquarters.

Rest Day

I don't know if we have every formally met. I am married to Tanya Wagner. 
I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know Tanya and I have been following your Competitors WOD programming for the past month and a half to 2 months. It has been nice following someone elses programming rather than your own, let me tell you. That being said I wanted to say thank you so much for your efforts in your programming. 
We are currently following about 1 month behind your current Comp. Wod programming and we have both seen huge gains in our strength and Oly Lifts. I just pr'd my snatch at 240lb yesterday after missing 205lb in this past years regionals and having an old pr of 215lbs. Tanya just hit 145lb on her snatch 10lbs more than ever before and also hit a 200lb C&J for her first time. Both of our strength numbers on our frnt and bk squats have also significantly increased. 
Thanks again so much for your generosity on allowing people such as ourselves to follow your expertise in programming for competitive athletes. Hopefully this can help both of us make a good run at the games again this year. Good luck to you and Heather with your new addition to the family. 
Thanks again Josh.

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.  Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination are omnipotent.  The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve more problem of the human race.”
-Calvin Coolidge, 1923.  "Silent Cal" did not speak often, but when he did, people listened.

 Trap City

1.  Clean and Jerk
15 minutes to work up to a 1RM

2.  Back Squat
5x1, across - as heavy as possible

3.  AMRAP 12:
with a partner and one barbell:
1 Squat Clean Thruster (185/135)
2 Squat Clean Thrusters
3 Squat Clean Thrusters

One athlete works while the other rests.  If Kevin and Matt are partners, Kevin does one rep then Matt does one rep.  Kev does two reps and then Matt does two.  Kev does three reps and Matt does three reps.  That is one round.  They would then repeat the same sequence, 1.2.3...1.2.3...
Partial rounds count.  Score as complete rounds + extra reps (ie, 4+6).
This workout is harder and a better stimulus when done with a partner, but if you train solo you can do AMRAP 8 of 1-2-3 with a :30 rest between all reps.
