Yesterday

warmup x 3:

10 OHS, 45#
10 hip and back extensions
10 deadhang pullups, chest to bar
10 GHD situps
10 HSPU's, from floor

"Randy"

75 power snatches, 75#

5:59

Not a good effort. I over-strategised and cost myself at least a minute by stopping to frequently. I did the first 25 in a straight set, then did 5's after that. The first third of the workout only took one minute. All of my sets should have been for maximum reps. I should be able to do this in 4 minutes or less.

warmup x 3:

10 OHS, 45#

10 kipping pullups, chest to bar
10 GHD situps

"Frianebeth"

21 pullups
15 squat cleans, 135#
15 ring dips
9 deadlifts, 225#
9 HSPU's

I really need to work on my squat cleans. That was what killed me. I got winded and had to break up every set after that, except for the HSPU's. This should be a sub 3 workout.

Yesterday

warmup x 3:

10 OHS, 45#
10 hips and back extensions
10 deadhang pullups, chest to hang
10 GHD situps
10 ring dips

20 min AMRAP

10 pullups
30 situps
50 double unders

8 rounds

My cardio level is still lagging. I was able to maintain a 1:30 per round pace for the first two rounds, then it started to fall off. 10+ rounds is very doable for this.

Yesterday I did some snatch practice, but didn't really work up to anything particularly heavy. The workout didn't follow my usual structure, and I never really felt warmed up. Although, they may have been do to the fact that I was snatching barefoot, and CrossFit BWI isn't heated.

warmup x 3:

10 OHS, 45#
10 hip and back extensions
10 kipping pullups
10 GHD situps
10 HSPU'S, from floor

"Jason"

100 squats
5 muscle ups
75 squats
10 muscle ups
50 squats
15 muscle ups
25 squats
20 muscle ups

23:10

Not real happy with this time. Muscle ups continue to be a weakness, but the squats felt a lot harder than they should.

I was very pleased with this workout today. All these lifts are in the neighborhood of my PR's for each. I feel like my energy level is getting back to where it should be. Tomorrow, "Mr Joshua".

warmup:

1k row

3 x each:

10 forearm to instep lunges
5 muscleups
10 burpees, 12" target

"Mr Joshua"

5 rounds

400m run
30 GHD situps
15 deadlifts, 255#

34:50

For some reason high rep GHD situps kill my lower back. I don't know why. I do three sets of ten in my regular warmup, so I do them almost every time that I walk into the gym. It's not a form issue either. I had some form problems when I first started doing them, which resulted in a psoas injury. I've since put a lot of work into perfecting form on them. However, anytime I have to do a high volume of GHD situps, my lower back starts singing by the end of the second set. I can't figure it out and it ****es me off, because it kills my times on a lot of workouts.

3 x warmup:

15 OHS, 45#
15 swiss ball hyperextension
12 deadhang pullups
20 abmat situps
20 pushups

Bench Press x 5

185-195-205-215-225

10 walking lunge steps, 50# each hand
15 dumbell swings, 50#

5:44

I'm switching to a strength and metcon system that I use with my intermediate clients, where each workout starts with a single strength element followed by a short (5-15min) and intense metcon.

Friday

3 x 10 each:

OHS, 45#
hip and back extensions
pullups
GHD situps
HSPU's

Back Squat x 5

315-345-365-385-405(4)

30 Muscle-ups

6:16 PR

Back squats were a little rough. I got stuck at the bottom on the last rep of 405 and had to dump. My 5 rep PR is 425, so I'm getting close. Muscle ups felt okay. I started off with a set of 10, which is the most I've ever done consecutively. PR'd by 16 seconds.

Presses were good...would have liked to hit 185. The metcon was the CrossFit BWI WOD from Friday. Fun stuff.
