:yeahthat:
(that's what I get for skimming; FWIW it took me 3 months to figure out its pull my KNEES back - I kept wondering, I'm pulling the bar as far back as I possibly can, its against my leg... not realizing my knees needed to go back to accommodate it :o)

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;1013399]pull your KNEES back (but not straight) and build a hang. explode legs when you get the bar to your lower thigh - it only has to go to nipple height for a clean.[/QUOTE]

Will try that. Thank you.

Thanks for all the B Day wishes.

12/14 WOD

1 Deadlift Every 30 Seconds for 10 Minutes

Followed by:
4 Rounds for Time
10 Pull Ups
25 Squats
200 M Run

Deadlifts @ 255#.
I should have done 265#. Doing a bunch like this really helps in terms of seeing the difference between a proper setup and form and improper setup and form. Taking a moment and being mindful of filling my lungs with air, putting a little tension in the lats, and really getting my weight back on my heels before lifting makes a lot of difference. Love deadlifting!

8:04 on the 4RFT. Tried to keep up with Zach and Brian but they just flew through this, particularly Brian. Big props to JJ for cranking out 40 unassisted pull ups after her long layoff.

[QUOTE=Michelle Simpson;1013110]...Fran played a serious head game with me a couple of weeks ago. Started with 65# and had to lower the weight to 55# and seriously wanted to leave the box forever that day.
I finished it in 12:52 which was horrible mentally.

Did Fran in my garage with a friend yesterday. I decided to stick to 55# and use that weight until I can get through all sets of thrusters unbroken. Yesterday even with broken sets, I still finished in 9:50 a full 3 minute improvement.

Sometimes you must take a step backwards to get a running start.[/QUOTE]

Michelle, That's what one of the instructors told me on Fran & the other standards. Go lower weight so you can do the unbroken sets & once you are doing good times, THEN work your way up! BTW, Nice work on your Press work!!

[QUOTE=Cliff Miller;1013300]...kinda fighting a cold...[/QUOTE]

Cliff, Way to go! I feel your pain with the cold!!

Yay!! Burpees!! :D Great Job!!

Deadlift 5-5-5-3-3-3 for Max Load.

135(5)-225(5)-275(5)-315(3)-325(f)-320(f)-275(3)

[I]Had to do this @ the Base Globo. Did it using a Dead Lift Platform that had the bar lower than normal, almost at my ankles. So, I was lifting longer. But I felt good that I was able to pull over 300# & not "Scare the straights" by dropping the weight![/I]

THEN

100 burpees

10:45

[I]YAY! BURPEES!![/I] :D
