Thursday August 23, 2013

Why can't every day be like 8/23/13?

Did one hour of mobility, stretching, and warming up.
Then got one hour of USAW coaching on the snatch in a 1:4 setting.
For the first time ever I felt the "flip" from the power position to overhead.
When that bar gets weightless and flips and you jump under it feels like cheating and magic and power and like being young and strong and useful all at once.

Then had a 1:3 deadlift clinic with Julie Foucher.
Revelations and records were involved!

8/23 WOD
"Sharknado"
1000m Row
then 3 rounds of:
15 Thrusters (95/65)
15 Toes-to-bar

15:43.
This really needs to be renamed "OhMyEffingGod-nado." It looked hard on the board and it was. ROM on both thrusters and T2B a little janky, although I focused on good depth for the thrusters. All sets of everything were 5 max, and by the end we were talking 2's. I was slowest among everybody but I got it done. This was choosing the wrench in a big way.

Hey Pat

Amazing isn't it... My last injection was over two years ago ....and six month ago when pain came on big time, prompted my change to crossfit form the garbage I was doing before.

I did a ton of research as there are over 20 boxes with in range .... Finally chose Crossfit Ripped based on the coaching and am I glad

I'll cut to the chase, after years of pain and hobbling..... A few months of lifting heavy and proper mobility and stretching .... I'm again leaping up stairs three at a time, 30 inch box jumps are a warm up, I can lunge and Bulgarian squat with 50-70# KBs or 155 on the bar and I'm back to the strength and conditioning I haven't seen in over twenty year( and improving daily)

Yes .... Proper coaching makes all the difference

re: chalk hash marks on the floor....
yesterday I used the kids little plastic horses to count rounds.
I set them up on my box and put one in a hat after each round.
It was both pleasing and sad to see the little horsies disappear.

Sunday August 25, 2013
(early morning session)

2012 CrossFit Friendship Master's Challenge Skill Ladder
Y = completed
F = tried and failed
DNA = did not attempt

Y 1 minute goblet squat, 53#
Y 30 second front plank
Y 30 second left plank
Y 30 second right plank
Y 30 second bar hang
F 30 second handstand hold against wall (wasn't able to kick up onto wall)
F 30 dubs (only got 16)
Y 44# TGU (did two)
Y 3 dead hang pullups
Y 2 kipping ring dips
Y 5 one arm kb-ohs, 44#
F 2 skin the cats (forgot to try these)
S 5 pistols (scaled to 24" box)
F 1 20’ rope climb (no rope available)
DNA 3 hspu
DNA 5 yard handstand walk
Y 10 second l-sit
DNA 1 muscle up

It was early morning, and I forgot to set my equipment up properly before the attempts. So I was rushing to raise/lower rings. I bought a rope for the barn but forgot to put it up. Will try this again next weekend (and every weekend until the October comp) to find my goats (it won't be a difficult search, they've been the same for years) and work on them. I really liked the idea of doing pistol progressions to a box. Each week/month you lower the box a little until you don't need it at all.

Strength

15 Minutes To Fine Heaviest Bench Press Rep

stopped at 315 as my shoulder was killing me....it's always something!

WOD

5 Rounds: 16:16

5 Hang Power Clean and jerk (from just above knee) @ 60% 1RM. Kept it to 135 due to shoulder

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
8/24 WOD

Four rounds for time:
Teams of two split the work
400M run (both run)
20 front squats (135/95)
30 push ups
40 Med ball sit ups

22:something I think; with Augie.
A little worried about the 135 front squats but we decided to do them anyway. My sets were 10, 10, 5-5. Pushups 15 straight through, all partner med ball sit ups straight through except when the slippery ball slipped out of my hands. Augie thanked me for going slow on the runs for him. No problem, I went slow just for you. *Ironic wink*


8/25 workout @ Bacara

10 handstand push ups
10 double unders
8 handstand push ups
20 double unders
6 handstand push ups
30 double unders
4 handstand push ups
40 double unders
2 handstand push ups
50 double unders

13:00
Spent probably half the time on the sets of 8 and 6 HSPU's. No mat except I could not get the last 4 on the round of 6 so I had to grab a mat, but I ditched it for last two rounds. D/u's only went OK. Strung 30 straight on round of 50 for my longest string.

Great work everyone! Back from two weeks of camping in southern CO. We alternated hiking and mountain bike riding each day. Great break from work and my back feels better than it has in quite a while. Guess it is time to start deadlifting again and tweak it. :rofl:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
8/26 WOD
A. Push Press, 15:00 to work up to a 3RM in 5 sets
135 (failed at 145, 1 only)

B. EMOTM, 8:00, 5 Hang Power Snatch
75, last set 80

+
6 rounds for reps per movement:
:30 max single/double unders
:30 rest
:30 no pushup burpees (jump on to plate)
:30 rest

255.
Not really happy with this number. Burpees were 10-12 per interval, double unders were upper-20’s to mid-30’s per interval. Lots of misses.

Going into the WOD I know I had done 30 HSPU’s yesterday so I was not surprised my push presses were only so-so. I forgot that this was my 4th consecutive workout, so I was not at my freshest. Plan for rest of week leading up to Pier to Peak is to rest Tuesday, WOD Wednesday and Thursday, then rest until Sunday. Lots of stretching and rolling out in the meantime.

Almost bought the farm on my first box jump... Didn't realize how jellofied my legs were and missed it completely. By the time I scraped my shins off the box I was recovered enough to nail all 20!

Bottom line, some pretty sexy (for me) snatch (165) and deadlift (455) numbers. And, people were actually able to swim in the puddle of sweat I produced. I'm not sure why they wanted to? Maybe b/c "it was there". But it was gross...

michael....you were totaly right on the needles in the foot thing....oh and have a blast in TO. i have some fond foggy memories from there.

yesterday's 5 needles in the were not fun. especially when the Dr. could not get the 2nd one into where she had to. in an attempt to chear me up (i think) she said that my ankle had worse arthritis than some of her 70 year old women she see's.

tried to find how I did on Linda when I started crossfit close to five years ago.

It was a nightmare back then. I just remember starting out under prescribed wieghts and then starting to strip off plates round by round. Did it at my local globo at the time and I kept hoping that someone would commondeer some of my equiptment so I could take more rest!

A total sh*tstorm at the box...

Warmup:
Row 500m, 5 med ball cleans, 5 kb swings
Row 250m, 5 med ball cleans, 5 kb swings
(Was supposed to be a partner wod, but there were an odd number of people and no-one picked the old guy. For some reason this got me yelled at by the coach {who apparently didn't realize that 11/2 leaves a remainder of 1!} So we were off on the wrong foot)

10 minutes to find 1RM thruster.
155, huge PR for me, in part b/c of how the USAW coaches have taught me to use my hamstrings and hips better. Apparently hitting a PR isn't good enough though. Second wrong foot in under 15 minutes.

16 minutes, EMOM
odd minutes, 3x95# thruster
even minutes, 3 muscle ups (or 6 CtB + 3 HR pushups)
All the bar space was full, so I went to rings. While doing the C2B I tried go get a muscle up. Third wrong foot, scorn, wrath, unintelligible instruction, I got ****ed and turned my ears off. Found a bar on a back squat rack for the rest of the rounds.

5 minutes rest (steam coming off my head from WOD and from still being angry. For some reason my button just got pushed. It wasn't pretty).

THEN, Diane (which I scaled to 155 and pushups off an 18" box.
9:42.
I couldn't move for 5 minutes after finishing. I was sitting on the box and sweat was running off me like there was a faucet on. It was gross. There was so much sweat it pooled and started to flow in a little river into another where a guy was putting away his stuff. Apparently this grossed out a couple of the other people in the box, who put the cherry and whipped cream on top of the sh*t sundae that was today.

Maybe it's a good thing that I'm going to Canada for a week and will have a week off from the box...

Incredible day "on the erg" with Erin Cafaro, two time Olympic Gold Medalist.
[url]http://jtkalnaynovels.wordpress.com/2013/08/31/dear-crossfit-on-the-erg-with-erin-cafaro-two-time-olympic-gold-medalist/[/url]

2 killer Wods

32 Tabata Intervals
8 with damper at 5
8 with damper at 10
8 with damper at 1
8 with damper at 3
For first of each 8 had to produce watts that matched your body weight.
For each successive rep had to increase watts by 10%

By the end of this wod (A) you are gassed and (B) you understand the damper.

20 minutes, EMOM
even minutes, row 200m
odd minutes, 3 front squats

I highly recommend Erin as a teacher.
