Charlie, you are very funny even if dim-witted. ;) Glad your wife is OK.

[QUOTE=Terry Dickman;691307]Been remiss from posting lately...busy at work, teaching CF and trying to get my workouts in. Welcome to tall the newcomers. I started a new program for the next 8 weeks...MEBB, one of our trainers went to Coach Rut's MEBB seminar a few weeks ago. ....snip....QUOTE]

Dumb question: What's MEBB?

Whoa - I must have special powers. Four minutes after I mention the broccoli boys, they magically appeared!! Even Brad was with the program! ;)

[B]Charlie[/B] - Glad to hear your wife is OK!

[B]Jeff[/B] - Max Effort Black Box - I didn't know either so I googled it. There was an article to read about it but it cost 6 bucks so hopefully [B]Terry[/B] will tell us for free!

[B]Deb B. [/B], Microfracture. They drilled holes in the bone where the arthritis is and tried to grow some pseudo cartilage. Jury’s still out on whether it actually worked or not. Next time I need to get cut on I’m doing it in [B]Charlie’s[/B] garage. At least then I’ll know I’m in a Crossfit friendly environment.

[B]David O.[/B], As they say down here in the southland, “Hey.” I’m relatively certain that implies welcome. I stole a part of your WOD from yesterday. Results to follow.

[B]Diane M.[/B] The Gorilla Run pics were awesome. There’s a bridge run here in Savannah I want badly to do. The wife challenged me to wear a naughty Santa’s helper outfit for the race. My problem is that if my knee won’t allow me to run by race time (Dec 5), I’ll be stuck walking 5k in a skirt. I think I’d prefer a gorilla outfit.

[B]Charlie![/B] Knucklehead. If we had done your hernia repair in the garage I’m pretty sure it would have stayed fixed. A window screen patch and some epoxy would have shown London who was boss. [B]Extra glad your wife is OK.[/B]
WU:
500m C2 2:47.1
50-100-150 SU jump rope
10-10-10 #30 goblet squats
10-15-20 pushups
10-15-20 #45 good mornings
10-10-12 dips
5-5-5 #45 press
5-10-10 #45 OH walking lunge
5-10-15 pullups
10-15-20 situps
WOD: 10 rounds for time of #65 Thruster x 10 (scaled down from #95) and Burpee x5
22:14.1 This was definitely a case of my eyes being bigger than my endurance. Also got carried away with the WU and didn’t leave as much gas in the tank as I needed.

I'm thinking a duct tape girdle might be useful to me right about now. If you can't fix it...duct it!

how about swimming or isometric exercise. It is NASA recommended.(WFS)

Intolerance for boredom may be a problem.

[B]Charlie[/B], Glad to hear things are ok at home. Are you active AF? Guard? I was Air Force long time ago (I'm in this thread you know). Spent some time at Enid and Wright Patt.

[B]All[/B]

I've noticed many of us do their own programming. I go to an affliate about 30 minutes from home and sometimes I can't make it all the way out there so I'll do what I can at our local Globo. Can't always do the wod. Can't drop weights either. So I often focus on strength or do body weight stuff. How do you all go about your programming? Follow the main site?

Jeff

Jeff, I go to a Lifetime Fitness. Beautiful multipurpose facilities. There are a few in your state. I use a power cage for most of the lifting. I put mats on the floor where the plates will rest or be dropped. I get the WOD's from the main site. Since my goal is to do four of these per week, I do get some latitude among workouts available. No climbing rope---although the place has a climbing rock wall. I use a 20 lb medicine ball on one of the pillars--it's loud. I did miss my hold once and took the hard covered ball on my mouth. So I bled, big deal! They do have Concept 2 rowers. I'm self employed so I can work out in the middle of the day. Hence I have less competition than most for equipment or when working multiple area. I bring my rings when needed and tie them to a power cage. It all works. My form however would be better if I was going to an affiliate and I'd get some coaching.
