"The Keg Drill" with Kelly Starrett CrossFit Journal Preview

Reader Comments (14)

Great for t-spine and shoulder mobility. I want to see a BUNCH of folks doing Kelly's "keg dril" at SBK in the near future. If you don't have a CF Journal subscription (and why?) ask me how to do it.

My very first C&J this morning! It was ugly -- didn't go deep enough, wavered with the weight overhead, etc. Did #115, #115, #125, #125, #125. But never very well. I'm excited to do this movement again.

Thanks for letting Kate & I join you on Saturday morning at 8:00am....I guess we were part of (at least temporary) history with largest class in the a.m.?

Just from 1 visit I can tell you guys & gals are in good hands. Keep it up!

Going to have to double check tonight if this is already up. How about a leader board for unbroken pull ups?

What about a leaderboard for flexibility somehow? Like sit-and-reach from elementary school? Seems like we should be rewarding all the 10 physical skills.

I like clean & jerks. Somehow knowing I have something else to do with the bar once I get it on my shoulders gets my own head out of the way during the clean part.


Max DUs: 37, a new PR!

Then some muscle-up play. Thanks Fox & Noah for tips & support.

Loving all the mobility work we've been doing! Like the idea of a leaderboard for flexibility, although I will never, ever be on it.

I need to lose this weighted vest of beer so that pullups dont destroy me.

They have a real nice gym out here, and they were super cool to me. Though I cant wait to get back and get in this cycle. BODYWEIGHT C and J Here I come!

Still working on the whole split jerk concept. Felt much better than last week, especially with David's help.C&J: 33, 53, 93, 103, 113, 123then backed it down to 103 to work on the split technique and dropping that back leg.

12 DUs! I think that's a PR.

C&J: 33, 53xlots,83x3,93x1,103x2,113x2,123x3,133x2. Felt a bit sluggish on the lift. Accidentally doing muscle cleans, which is a terrible habit from having had a sore hip so much. Oh well. Splits starting to feel a little better, knee dropping nicely some of the time. Looking forward to future exposures,

Double unders: max was 83 today. two less than recent PR BECAUSE I HIT THE STUPID RINGS! Grrrr.

Lots of attempts at samsoning myself Alec style. I feel like the bottom of the class in this arena.

Blahh performance tonight. Kept it very light on the C&J cuz of still funky back and working on form.65x1x485x1x395x1x4Double unders I only hit 45, not quite near my pr.

Late post from last Thursday --10k row - 41:39meters/split/s/m for every 10 minute interval:2381/2:05.9/202444/2:02.7/212381/2:05.9/222383/2:05.8/22final 421 meter sprint 1:58.5/24s/m

Kept it slow and steady trying to maintain a steady rhythm, work on form and ignore all the things that start to hurt.

C&J53x1x2, 58x1x2, 63x1x3, 68x1x2, 73x1x2 (The number of sets for some of these may be off. I don't have my notes with me.) This felt good. My cleans were going relatively well until the last one. I think that was just due to fatigue.

DU practiceI was really looking forward to this since I've been floundering on my DUs lately. I think my old PR was 19 (but maybe 21) so when I hit the first attempt at 20 I considered it a PR. Overall I was able to string together more DUs and do that more consistently than I have before.
