“Liquid Cocaine”

CrossFit New England Benchmark WOD

×
  • 5 Rounds for Time
  • 5 Clean-and-Jerks (155/105 lb)
  • 10 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
×
Strategy: Looking at the overall volume today, we have 25 moderate weight clean and jerks and 50 chest to bar pull-ups. Taking into consideration how we would likely break those up as a whole will help athletes make a decision on what is best for them each round. Right off the bat, we can confidently say that singles will likely be the best option on the clean and jerks. The pull-ups will be athlete dependent, but we are probably looking at 1-3 sets here. 5-5 or 4-3-3 are options for 2 and 3 set strategies. Whatever the chosen option, the goal is to minimize time spent not moving.

Background: “Liquid Cocaine” is one of CrossFit New England’s official benchmarks, first posted on their website January 26, 2011. Though CFNE names their daily WODs "for fun," this WOD is from a short list provided to us by CFNE’s Director of Operations, Eamon Coyne. Eamon called this workout “Death Race,” but we couldn’t find it published by that name.

CrossFit New England is famous for being the training ground for multiple CrossFit Games champions, under the expert eye of head coach and owner, Ben Bergeron.
