Re: 2014 45-49 Fittest on the Planet goal

Last post was Tuesday.

Wed- stretching, foot repair, mental break.. 5:30 teach my burning stored body fat class at the gym. Had 5 people show up.

Introduced some new foot stretching. Was crazy to feel the tear on the PF Saturday. Never felt something like that prior.

Need to stretch my seriously tight shoulders also. Some of the rubber bands holding me together are old and crunchy.

Thursday- had to patch my roof for the rains that are coming.

Don't like doing projects around the house much. Must learn to like them.

No gym. Going in tonight for some rowing and some cleans working on the scooping and touch and go with them.

Re: 2014 45-49 Fittest on the Planet goal

Vic,

Couple things.

1. Good luck this year in the Open,stay grounded and healthy and enjoy the ride.
2. What was it that you did to your back. Have been having low back issues for moths and I/we believe it is inadequate activation of glutes and some mobility restrictions in my hips and quads that led to a bunch of stuff.

It seems that this has become quite common amongst more competitive Crossfit people and I would think it is a couple things.

1. Not a lot of posterior stuff - the sport is very quad dominant (especially if you are already prone to that)
2. The amount of repititions/volume it takes to be even pretty good no matter what divisions you compete in.

I know for me it was those things plus a lack in general of warm up time etc that has gotten me in trouble. Taking a step back and building things back up again though and so far, so good.

Jason,
I found out that I had a weak posterior.

My coach and I attacked it this off season.

Stronger abs, hip flexors, glutes, hamstrings..

More mobility. Strengthen and lengthen I call it.

Now the back is better and as strong as ever my new stuff is the shoulders and my planters F on the foot.

Time to bullet proof them.

Im excited to see how this fairs for me. Now the diet and amount of time cross fitting has gone down. I am hoping for a decent finish in the open and another month to sort the MQ stuff.

Thank you and good luck in the open also!
Vic

Re: 2014 45-49 Fittest on the Planet goal

Friday-
Long warm up- hip circle, bird feeders, bands, 2 of the 4 b's.

Dead lift- 135,225,275,325,365,395,425 was super easy off the floor. Attempt at 450# got it off the floor but straightened my legs out too fast. Was happy with the attempt almost got it.

Some power clean practice- the bar was actually making noise where the bearings were getting weightless. Was really good till 225.. but that was fine.

A bunch of reps at 155 going t and g for sets of 5 easy ones.

Some strict c2b was not my day.. 1,2,3,4,5,6

GHD rows- all 10 reps- 45,65,75,85,95.

Some rowing then tending to trash and laundry details.

Overall good day best DL Session in a 2.5 years, Power clean was going its best ever working on the scoop.

Foot was ok, shoulder was really sore the next day.


Saturday AM- Group warm up with class.
Teams of 3
20 min amrap-
Partner A rows 300 meters
Partner B holds plank
Partner C
20 alt lunges in place
10 squat jumps
10 push press 50# dumb bells
We got 15 rounds-
Mostly 1:40 or under pace for my rounds of rowing

Planks were for clearing and calming my breathing.

Overall good workout.

Did some accessory work after the workout, Rom wod, shoulder stretching and other things getting old I forgot.

Sunday was 90 min worth of stretching and caring for my shoulder and foot.

Monday-woke up many times that night with shoulder aches and pains.. decided to listen to my body and do some work and mostly care for it. Was 90 min worth of warm up, shoulder and foot repair, hip circle, glute ham raises, rowing, mu push pull drill, couch stretch. Cleans up to reps for 155#.

More shoulder work thru out the day. Paid off the shoulder did not wake me.

Tuesday now.. 2 days until they announce the workout and 3 days prior to doing the workout. Need to get in a good stable mind set ready for what ever hits me.
