Re: A Bears Tale

Good job on kempies challenge mate! That's definitely a tough one with those squat clean thrusters. I know that's the part that's gonna do me in! Are saving Fran for tomorrow? I'm gonna hit it today and try my best to finally get in the 3 minute range. Oh and about the shorts, those are my " I just built me a pair of parallettes and couldn't wait to use them" shorts! I managed to only get 2 hspu in a row with them. Ten times harder. I'm not sure if my head is supposed to touch the floor or not but that's how I did them. Good stuff!

Re: A Bears Tale

NIce challenge score Scott, things started to go a bit sideways from round 2 with me also. I did swings with 25KG dumbell and they caned me. Leon is always on my case for not getting enough leg and hip into my swing.

It's for not extending the knee and the hip fella, when you hit it right the swing is almost effortless. You did pretty well with the 2 pood the other night during the chipper but you have to be consistent with the reps.

Re: A Bears Tale

Awesome work on FGB and the challenge mate. That FGB must have hurt big time!

Thanks Jesse, two very hard workouts there, getting hard to keep up with main page right now. Good to hit FGB in an affiliate with a real box to jump onto, my numbers went down so badly after using a bench press bench to jump on before, its good to show up a weakness to work on.

You will be fine with it Ernie, probably beat my score, for some reason the swings really hurt in this combo and the C2B pull ups felt like the rest. Good luck with Fran, I will be hitting her tomorrow, not decided whether to go at her C2B or normal as normal hurts much more.

Nice looking parallettes, look a lot like Richards and your hands look about level with your shoulders at the bottom so thats all good. Your shorts look like golfers shorts. PS my DIY skills are severely lacking and you would not catch me upside down on anything I built myself.

Thanks Lee, I see your score and was gunning for it, went off at a 9 round pace but could not keep it up, after 4 minutes I knew it wasnt happening. Great work on your 8 plus rounds, you must of been flying on that 1st round to get it in 35 seconds, I done it all consecutive, touch n go etc and got 55 seconds.

Thanks Leon, the FGB hurt a lot more than the challenge, more muscular pain on that one.

Everyone at the affiliate really laughed at me after I finished FGB, I was really trying to talk but couldnt get anything understandable out, the beer afterwards definately tasted good.

Re: A Bears Tale

Great job on the FGB and challenge. You are a beast Scott. I don't think I have broke 300 yet.

Re: A Bears Tale

Todays CFFB workout looks pretty pointless for me 21-15-9 of bench and dips....... which in my sub world would be dips and dips. Might have a go at Kempies challange, haven't done swings in this gym yet, I may be there for some time tonight attempting to explain 'what muscles' i'm using

You could do pushups for bench.
