Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
 
[QUOTE=Christopher G. Woods;388971]It's funny you say that, because I've always thought it was strange that you don't squat more-considering how much you deadlift. I think it's a hold over from back in the day, when I used to get my workout routines from Muscle&Fitness. I used to do leg presses like it was my job. I was pressing 800 for reps before I even knew how to do a deadlift. I'd love to have me a 3 x BW deadlift. I'm close, though; I've been teetering on the edge for the last six months. I just need to add about 25 lbs. to my PR, that and get my weight back under 170.[/QUOTE]

See, I look at it the other way around - you should be deadlifting more because your squat is so high! :D

The hardest part of this workout, by far, is holding onto the dumbell with your feet. After I was done, I told Ryan I thought I could probably have shaved off two minutes if I'd used my harness. His reply, "Yeah, but that ain't legit." I don't know how much I agree with that. Of the three video's I've seen, only David Ley didn't use a harness. I was able to do all of the thrusters unbroken, which makes me even less happy about my time. I'll probably hit this again in a few weeks.

I thought the original "heavy fran" was still 21-15-9? Either way, give this one a shot:

21-15-9 of:
BW Thrusters
50%BW Chinups

That's sorta heavy. :D

Really week time for this workout. I actuall did this workout because I thought it would be something light after the heavier stuff I've been doing the last few days. I did not give it the credit it deserves. I also overslept this morning, so I'd only been up for an hour. Let it be known, I am not a morning person.

"Albany CrossFit September Challenge"

10 min AMRAP, two person team pullups, only one person working at a time, both team members must use the same bar space

I hit this with Christa Solomon, one of an amazing group of ladies from Team BWI that we're preparing for the 2009 games. We knocked out 262 reps (see my sig for video); I did 153, for my part. I'll be doing this again in a week or so, with CrossFit BWI founder Ryan Thompson, for the men's pairs.

No PR today (PR=14:51). This sucked. There's definitely something holding me back right now. I've been posting way to many week times lately. I'm shifting my diet back to what I was doing in the spring. Solid 3-5x fat zone, 50% carbs from fruit, 25% vegetables, 25% grains. I don't care what anyone says, it's what gets me the best numbers. I also feel like I've got some mental blocks right now. My watch stopped at 1:07 while doing the first set of squat cleans; luckily I was videoing, so I didn't have to start over. Anyone who's followed this log knows I have a love/hate relationship with my watch. I like to be able to see where I'm at during the workout; it also makes it a lot harder to procrastinate when you can see how long your procrastinating. I need to get over this. I need to keep going as hard as I can no matter what the situation. I've been feeling a distinct lack of determination during my workouts lately; this has to stop. I had some other things go against me today. I made a poor choice by using bench that was too high and didn't allow me to place my feet firmly on the ground. I didn't think it was an issue until the round of 4 when, due to the large amount of sweat both on the bench and on my back, I unracked the bar and proceeded to slide sideways off the bench. Unfortunately, because I was benching in a cage and because of the height of the safeties, I couldn't just clean the bar back up to the rack. I had to unload the bar, rerack and then reload it; this cost me about a minute and a half and a good deal of momentum to boot.

I hope you'll figure out what's holding you back, you'll be out of control when that's solved.

Heavy fran is calling me soon :D
