9/25 WOD

"Fight Gone Bad!"

Three rounds of:
Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
Row (Calories)
Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20" box (Reps)

Total: 211.

Not a great score once again. Started with 31 push presses, which gassed me right out the gate. Wall balls were slow, but legit! Sumo deadlift high pulls were a surprising bottleneck. Great FGB5 event!

Hey Deb, nice avatar. Summers gone in Jersey?..for some reason we are having a heat wave here...101 today, 99 tomorrow... go figure. I think the shoulder thing must have to do with age and crossfit, mine are always sore...seems like they feel better when I avoid overhead stuff, but thats hard to do with crossfit. Press and Push Press will help your jerk, but I think practice with quickness and technique would help more. I know I really need to work on that, check out this link, there is a video and article on the jerk. WFS [url]http://olyathlete.com/[/url]

M.E. Supine Bench 3-3-3-1-1-1

[B]205,215,225,235,245,265[/B] went up easy, thought about 275 but will save that for another day

Rest 5:00

did this with the other trainers to help motivate Danny (my coach for the Games), he is competing next weekend at the The CrossFit/USA Weightlifting Open, same weight class as Matt Chan.

How Many Rounds can you complete in 10:00? (CF/USAW WOD)
6 Cleans @125 lbs
12 Pull-ups
24 Double Unders
[B]4 rounds +3[/B] I sucked at the DUs again

9/27 WOD

21–15–9
Squat Cleans (135#/95#)
Ring Push Ups
Weighted Sit Ups (25#/15#)

18:15 at 115# for the squat cleans. It is hard to overestimate how grueling squat cleans are! Ring push ups were easiest. I needed more weight than two 35# dumbbells to anchor my feet for the weighted sit ups, so thanks KJ and Augie for holding me down on rounds 2 and 3. (Yes, Augie finished and then had time to hold my ankles down in round 3.)

We ran two heats because of the shortage of ring dip stations, and we ran long. This WOD took longer than you would think by just looking at it on the whiteboard.

I hear you all on the shoulder thing. Once I get mine warmed up, they seem to be okay, but they are generally sore and creaky most of the time. For me, it's the kipping pull up that seems to bother them the most.

Deb, I think Terry makes a great comment on the jerk, and I really enjoy that Olyathlete site. Press will help, but probably not as much as push press. There are plenty of female Oly lifters that I can out-press, but that can bury me in the jerk. They are fast and fearless!!

Week 1, Cycle 5 Wendler 5-3-1 (my modified version)

I am replacing the back squat with front squat for at least a couple of cycles. I’ll still get some back squats in, but it won’t follow the 5-3-1 template.

Press (5, 5, 5+) – 100/120/135(5)

Front Squat (5, 5, 5+) – 120/140/155(5)

GHD Situps 3×10

Ring Push Ups 3×10

4x400m run (2:00 rest) – 2:02/2:11/2:16/2:02

I could have taken more that 5 on the last set of front squats, but I have not trained these in a while and I want to see how my legs react.

The 400m runs were done at CFC. That 400m out-and-back is a little long and a little hilly. For the moment, I am happy with those times, but they are nowhere near where I need them to be.

My problem isn't soreness, it's stiffness. It's just hard to get them to open up enough for a lot of movements. Our coaches have been working in movements from the Kelly Starrett mobility blog ([url]http://mobilitywod.blogspot.com/[/url]) (WFS). Lots of good stuff in here!

PS. We're wilting in Santa Barbara at 82 degrees!

Good day folks,

Back from a mini vacation and low and behold FGB was posted for WOD!
8hrs each way sitting behind the wheel sure makes one stiff and sore!
I fell pretty hard on the dirt bike and have some sore ribs--Wah, wah wah!
Did get in 12miles on the MTB and that was fun!

FGB- Subbed weight to 65# to see how I compared to the last (first time) I attempted this great WOD!
“Fight Gone Bad!“

Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20″ box (Reps)
Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
Row (Calories)

Rnd#1: 29,21,24,18,12
Rnd#2: 20,17,22,14,12
Rnd#3: 14,17,18,11,13
Total Today: 262
Previous was: 274
Felt really weak and stiff not to mention gassed! the decrease in reps showed dramatic need to work on breathing and upper body strength!
DANG I LOVE THIS STUFF!
