Unscheduled Rest Day. Kind of needed to refocus and really look at my programming. Read up on "Crossfit burnout" and got to thinking......

20111204

20 minute AMRAP
5 Push press @ 115#
30 DU

Finished with 15 rds. I subbed the DU after 11 minutes. 1) The rope was kicking my a$$ 2) shoulders were smoked 3) I kind of suck at DUs

Anyhow, I can add DU work to my programming along with some serious shoulder mobility work, snatch and OHS.

Went with something simple tonight.

10 rds of DL, KTE and box jumps ( 10, 9,.....2,1). Worked with 225# and 24" box. Took my time and worked on my DL form. I wasn't in any hurry with this WOD. Felt good.

Got some cardio in with my wife by doing some Zumba.... Yeah, yeah....lol Kept my heartrate up for 30 minutes without going out in the cold rain and running.

I decided to take my WOD outdoors tonight.It was a brisk 37 degrees so I went with a thick compression shirt to offset the cold.
Anyway, I warmed up with a 1 mile run and some bear crawls and jumping jacks.

10 rds of 30 rope singles, 100 m Farmer's walk @ 50# each hand, and 15 KBS @ 30#. I hadn't used my DIY handles in a while and I soon remembered why. My forearms are smoked! I have pretty decent grip strength but tonight it was brutal. Compounded by the cold, it was a burden to keep a good grip on the handles. I paused at 50m to readjust my grip on my 9th and 10th rounds.

May have to lay off any lifting tomorrow due to expected soreness...I'll make the call in the afternoon. I need some road time anyhow, so I may run. maybe, sprints with my vest or tire drags....hmm.

Began workout with some DU practice. I think that I should invest in a speed rope. My weighted one is awesome but it may be causing some of my difficulties.. I moved on to the Burgener warm up and some shoulder mobility exercises.

Actual WOD was light. I did 5x 30 handstand holds, then moved on to some snatch balance practice. I started light with 75# and worked up to 95#. I think some of the tutorials are helping. The movements felt more fluid. I'm using the hook grip and pushing the bar backwards more once I'm at the bottom position. Still have to drive downward though....More work ahead but I'm satisfied with my progress.

Well, my daughter convinced me to buy a speed rope today. I put it to use an warmed up with 5 minutes of DU practice. It felt alot different to work with a lighter rope; still not as proficient as I'd like but it's a start.

WOD:
4 rds
20 Push ups
20 hammer strikes with 10# sledge
5 Squat cleans 170#
10 KBS 1.5 pood

REST DAY

I watched several mobility videos and did some active stretching on my hip flexors. Found alot of trigger points, and worked on releasing some of the tensions and getting a good stretch.

Also, put in some time with the sciatic nerve and worked that area extensively.....Felt awesome!!!

Began with 100 jumping jacks for a warm up.

3 rds
10 Back squats 195#
40 rope singles
10 KBS 1.5 pood
10 burpees
10 tire slams
10 KTE

I cooled down with 4x 10 sec L sits and worked some more hip flexor drills. Tonight, I went with a simple but effective exercise. I use my PVC pipe and a med ball; a squat to the ball. Painfully good for squat depth and loosened up my hips alot. Finished off with a 2 minute Chinese squat.

I definitely need to run tomorrow.....
