hi jason,

wow!! good effort with the snatches... and that metcon (deadlift, box jumps)...

i noticed that you play rugby!!! i love rugby!! two of my mates are professional union players with the Western Force, a Super 14 team..

what position do you play? i'm guessing by your size, i'm thinking centres, fly half (or second five - depends where you're from), winger (dunno how fast you are)... what impact has crossfit had on your rugby???

sorry to sound like a schoolgirl, but rugby is a passion of mine! Last night was season opener and it was great going to watch a live game!!

I'm hoping to play again after I finish anticoagulant (anti-clotting) therapy!!

jeremy austin from crossfit gold coast used to play at the elite level for queensland reds and act brumbies...

eat well, train hard, live happy...

Congrats on getting a PR for the most advanced CF movement out here IMHO. You continue to inspire and amaze me JD!

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Did FGB today...RX'd. The last time we did it it wasn't rx'd because of limited equipment (we only had a 15# ball and an 18 inch box jump).

My previous PR was 267. Today my score - 297. I had two goals...beating vinny (306) and breaking the 300 barrier. Missed 'em both. Owell...still a PR. Felt a little tweak in my back warming up doing the SDHP but it didn't bother me.

Here's the breakdown

Wall Ball 30/25/22
SDHP 23/20/18
PP 26/20/18
BJ 21/21/18
Row 11/11/12

Total 297. I think if I could just get a few inches taller I would do much better on the row..:)

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Big day today. On my running outside days I usually just go for 40 minutes at an easy pace. I figured if I stay consistent with that I'll keep going further and further in the same amount of time.

Today was the first time I officially hit the 4 mile mark.
My house to 869 Lake Shore Drive and Back. According to google maps that's exactly 2 miles. And I want a few houses past mine to round out the 40 minutes.

Also had a head wind on the way back.

Good day..

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

7 rounds for time

10 Ring dips


I think the spirit of this workout is under 10 mins but, owell. Starting to get the kip down on the ring dips.

Also took some time out today to practice walking on hands (did a few 10 sec stands and walked about 10 feet a few times), pistols (got a few) and double unders - just seems like I haven't done them in a while.

Sumo Deadlift
10 - 132
7 - 182
5 - 202
3 - 222
1 - 242
1 - 272
1 - 282 (I'm an idiot here. I put a 10# plate on the right side, forget the left)
1 - 302
1 - 312
1 - 312
1 - 312

Here's the story here. I haven't gone super heavy on deads in a while due to back issues. Other than a slight knee twinge I felt good today. Couple things...

1. I'm trying to dial in my form so that's why I did the Sumo Deadlift. I think doing it that way it is easier for me to keep my (entire) back straight. I feel that not maintaining a rigid spine will, and probably is a limiting factor of my deadlift and will probably keep my CFT down, not enable me to go heavier on other lifts etc.

2. I didn't go super heavy...just heavy enough to jolt the system...

I basically copied off of Tony Bainbridge...Not because he's super strong but because we're about the same height, so I figure if he can do it that way so can I.

Couple notes...

I really need to learn to lower the weight better by initiating by sticking my butt out.

Need to find out if I can do Sumo DL for a CFT.

Also. I'm starting to add some extra strength work, and will probably do a metcon tonight.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Did some real silliness this evening.

22-16-8 (to keep reps even for single arm work)

Dumbell squat clean (2 Dumbells)
Push Press (1 arm Dumbell R/L)
Overhead squat (1 arm Dumbell R/L)

We were supposed to do the above reps for the 2nd 2 exercises using each arm totaling 22,16 and 8 reps...I was a MORON! And for some reason, I did the squat cleans correctly but did 22 reps of the other 2 exercises for all 3 rounds.

Used 40# Dumbells.

My time 14:55.

That's what I get for not paying attention.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 11:47 AM.
