Not CrossFit Total BW - 170ish

Warm-up 5-3-1

Clean - 135-175-195-210(Miss)-210-220(Miss) Had it up...in the death grip. Had I been thinking power clean I might've gotten it.

Bench - 135-185-225-235-245(miss)-240 PR I guess...Haven't really done much bench press the last few years...I'll take it.

Overhead Squat - Did a light set at 95 which felt okay but when I got 135 on the bar my left shoulder hurt like hell. I didn't have any inkling that I had a problem with my shoulder but I didn't push it. Sucks because I was really looking forward to the OHS portion of this WOD. In fact, I had planned to attempt a 15 BW OHS's when I was finished. But I didn't push it.

Also...I've had a tweaked knee...an iffy lower back and hip so I think I may do somethign light and easy tomorrow then take a rest week.

Seems like everybody has a blog these days...why should I be any different?? I titled my blog the [URL="http://jd180.blogspot.com/"]JD 180[/URL] w/f/s and plan to write about my lifestyle turnaround. Check it out if you get a chance. I just put my first post on there and hope to update it fairly frequently.

First day doing ANYTHING after a full week off. Felt good. Only did a 20 minute light jog outside - really nice out today.

Ran 20 mins (In chucks/pose all the way)

Went from my house to just past the first driveway across from the Ford house and back to 22712.

~2.35 miles if I had to guess...

good to be back but I think the week off will help.

21-18-15-12-9-6-3 rep rounds of:
135 pound Sumo deadlift high-pull
Pull to inverted hang and lower as slowly as possible

On SDHP's, pull the bar to make contact under the chin. On pulls to inverted hang, keep arms, trunk, hips, and legs as straight as possible, both up and down. This is not for time.


I only made it through the round of 12 then I had to run an intro. took me about 50 mins to get that far!!

Most of the sumos hit my chin...I gotta get better at the gymnastics stuff.

Deadlift

10 - 95
7 - 135
5 - 225
5 - 245
5 - 265
5 - 285
5 - 305 (PR)
5 - 315
5 - 315 (miss) 1 rep.

Just felt really beat up by that last set. I looked back in my log and the last time I did 5's on the dead was August of last year. Waaay too long.

The deadlift gives me so much trouble that it's hard to attack with a lot of intensity but I'll take the PR. Also my grip was bad. Hook hurt and alternate didn't feel good either. something else to work on.

GHD sit-up
Back extension
Knees to elbow
95 pound Stiff legged deadlift


34:53 Rx'd

My legs weren't perfectly stiff but stiffer than normal. I tried to concentrate on usiing more hamstrings than normal. Wasn't sure I was doing them right. My grip was still fried from yesterday. I'm also pretty tired from my new busy schedule.

1 rep max snatch - 10 minute time limit.

155. (PR is 170)

Missed 165 about 5 or 6 times. Had it above my head a few times. Bashed myself in the forhead once.

Probably should have warmed up a bit better.

It doesn't look that hard on paper but I'm sure its killer...... I guess it would take me about 4 hours to do it as rx'd though with the MUs. What was the hardest part for you?

What were the times from the games? any idea?

It's weird...Going into it. I thought the thrusters would be easy and the burpees would be hard...turns out, both were.

MU's probably took too long...probably about 5 - 7 lbs heavier than optimal right now.

Push press was easiest.

Thrusters were a nightmare.

Pull-ups were fine.

Burpees were annoying.

Lunges took the longest.

'Linda'

10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 BW - 170 (ish)

Deadlift - 255
Bench - 170
Power Clean 130

Time - 23:43 - Not a PR by any stretch for a few reasons.

#1. Bench was way harder because of the tabata push-ups from yesterday's WOD. I did all sets straight through last time...not today.

#2. I went traditional on the deadlift instead of sumo. I also did 1 rep at a time and re-set for each rep. I also didn't use the alternate grip. Used hook. I'm trying to get away from the alternate grip - hear that causes too many arm injuries.

#3. Probably a bit hungover :)

Just tried it. Pretty brutal. 18 rounds even with 5 seconds to spare, which I think is decent, not sure though.

[B]04/19/10[/B]

2 year CrossFit anniversary.

5 rounds for max reps of

2/3 bodyweight thruster
Pull-ups

Rested 3 minutes between rounds - no rest between thrusters and pull-ups. Really tired and beat up today.

Thrusters (115#)/Pull-ups

1. 15/20
2. 10/12
3. 9/10
4. 9/10
5 10/12

53/64 - 117

Something about doing pull-ups after thrusters...taxes my grip.

Went for another 20 minute jog today as I'm doing another 50% week. I told myself I would do this at least once per month...

My house to the driveway of 1034 lakeshore and back to 22804. Little bit further than last time.

Probably about 2.5 miles.
