Respect for the 15 attempts Nik, all that work will strengthen you for next time when you kill it.

Ernie Guevara 05-12-2009 12:10 PM

Re: Nik
 
Good try Nik sometimes its not just about the strength but the technique as well. My last set i got 210lbs and felt i had more in me so i went for 220lbs. I had my version of your 180 with the 220 lol. i just couldn't get under it!!

Don't worry about it Nik, just keep working on your technique and you'll be building up little by little. Thats how all of these oly lifts are. You gotta spend some good time working on the technique and the numbers will fly up. Unless you are a freak of Nature like Scott and upright row 220lbs :rofl:

We made some progress with Nik's form a bit today. I noticed that he was lifting his hips quicker than his shoulders. We did some practice and worked on that. Other than that, he has pretty good form. I think he just needs to get more power out of the drive.

I, on the other hand, get more power out of my drive but wuss out with my shrug and elbows. I think we are both capable of more weight. It'll just take practice to build the confidence.

[QUOTE=Camille Lore;587207]1 hand negative pullups? :yikes:[/QUOTE]

Yes, I am threatening them now. I figure to get stronger arms do pullups(dead hang if you got them. What is harder than that? ONE ARM. I can hold at the top for just a sec with my left arm, a little shorter with my right.

your right there's always a spare meeting room or office around (i used to do it during the burpee challenge:D), throw in some HSPU's and your sorted. The only problem is explaining the noise when your legs hit the wall

I was not sure about whether I would kip or deadhang so did not go C2B today, no Monty today , I was slightly angered by idiots before I started Diane and when I am a bit angry Monty runs and hides behind my ears. :D

Re: Nik
 
Four rounds for time of:
100 ft Walking lunge, carrying 30 pound dumbbells
24 inch Box Jump, 30 reps
30 pound Weighted pull-ups, 20 reps

ok no C2B, head over
no weight on box jumps

I screwed up my time. I hit the start button, checkd that is was running(I had it hanging off the pullup rack) dropped it and went all the way till the pullups on the second round, it must have hit the stop when I dropped it, it shower .95 of a second. I started it again and finished the second set of pullups and the last two rounds in 15:47

So I got a lesson in this is for fitness first not time. Oh well it was a good workout any way.
