the eating program is going to be an interesting challenge. i have cleaned up my eating habits hugely over the past year but i know i still have an up hill battle to totaly clean them up. giving up the beer i think is going to be the hardest especially in the summer.

[QUOTE=William Hoogsteden;959670][I]Short but Brutal WOD! Burpees (Yay! Burpees!) were the limiting factor! I was one of the 1st done with the 1st set of OHS, But the last done with the 1st set of Burpees (Yay! Burpees!). At least I wasn't the slowest![/I][/QUOTE]

I like Burpees. Or at least, they are very similar to the [URL="http://yogacrossfit.wordpress.com/2011/07/11/week-eight-day-27/"]Yoga Plavanas[/URL] that I teach in Yoga. Ive mentioned this more than a few times in my blog.

Since day one, the peeps I work out with have commented on "how fast" I am with Burpees, and how Im "really good" at them. Being new and not knowing what a good time for them is, I take their word for it. Since these comments though, I have noticed that I am mostly finished with them before others are.

[URL="http://yogacrossfit.wordpress.com/2011/07/13/week-8-day-29/"]Otherwise, had a really good WU and WOD today. Feeling really super this morning![/URL]

:super:

Valarie--enjoyed your blog. I guess there is much crossover between yoga and crossfit at the core.

Strength work: Bench press: 5X190,225, 250. Skipped the assist work for the WOD at Tribal.

6RFT: 50 squats, 25 ring dips. Scale: toes on box for the dips. 24:48.

The only way to make Burpees (Yay! Burpees!) tolerable IMHO, is to just do 'em! We did a 100 day Burpee (Yay! Burpees!) challenge last winter ( 1 the 1st day, 2 the 2nd,..., 100 the 100th, "shouldn't I be doing Burpees (Yay! Burpees!) the 101st :D) which helped A LOT!

[B]Michelle [/B]is back!!! nice snatching. [B]Pat[/B] strong as ever in the heat, along with [B]Cliff[/B](morrison, omg) and [B]Burpee Bill.[/B]

whats the name of that WOD, [B]John B[/B]? Shoulder Toast?? :D

Nice work [B]Jim[/B]; you and [B]Perry[/B] could get together for a team comp (youre pbly close enough). I'd pay $$ to watch it!! LOL

[B]Valarie[/B] saw the wodyoga blog. Maybe be a little careful w/SDHP - lots of folks wont do them at all, lot of shoulder injuries. Shoulders shouldn't round forward at the top, I guess a lot of times they do when you're rushing.

ALL the bar height and drive is from your hips/legs; theres tons of pics of lifts w/bent elbows at extension, it LOOKS like they've used the shrug to move the bar up more, but by that point in the lift, the acceleration is over, the shrug is a natural consequence of accommodating the bar coming up, & pulling your body under. Nothing at all to do with powering the bar.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Yesterday: biked an easy 35 miles with a friend. Sprinted ahead a bunch of times to get my heart rate up. Followed up with a mile swim. Pushed it on the swim the last half mile. Followed with beer on the beach in the late afternoon.

I think beer is integral to the cross fit experience.
