[QUOTE]Because the fact that english is not my first language you feel the need to bash me...awesome, BTW you missed a word or two in your sentence.[/QUOTE]

I missed the words "my" which I omitted in reference to MY english, as in the words I was transposing into the comment window. And I missed the word "are" before Camille LeBlanc. Well, besides the words that get asterisked out because I curse like a baseball player.

Let me be clear. I am not ridiculing your command of the english language. You write a helluva lot better than that gobbly-muck that Camille is always posting on social media that hurts my brain to try and read. I can understand that she will never get rid of the accent and probably have decent spoken grammar because she hails from that frozen land with reindeer and hockey.

What you are not getting is the words I am imparting in these posts. You insist that Sam Briggs doesn't have that strong of legs compared to someone like Kara Webb (or Becca Day though that's awhole nother discussion). Yes, she isn't squatting 150 or 180kg. Both Sam and Annie have long legs (especially Annie if you watch her snatch or clean) which don't make for as great of squatters (Kara is 4 inches or 10cm shorter which is the same height as Camille but weighs 12kg more).

OMG, she doesn't squat like Taylor Stalling, PLing so and so.

She outlifts Thorrisdottir in her Oly numbers by a 18kg total(though neither are exemplary Oly/Weightlifters) and deadlift and weighs 5-6kg less while squatting the same and deadlifting 10 more kg.

Yes, Camille and Lauren squat more and SnCJ more (though they do not deadlift more than Sam and Annie by A LOT). Camille is a good 5" shorter than Annie and 3"shorter from Lauren besides 4" from Sam. If anything Camille has shorter legs and a long torso compared to Fisher with her opposite proportions in her legs and torso.


I give up. :confused:

[QUOTE=Jason A Smith;1250186]I like the first one but reverse the reps on HSPU and pistols. 20 pistols easy, 20 HSPU will be a lot of people staring at the wall for a while. Especially if they are strict, which I could see.[/QUOTE]

Reckon that's a personal thing, for me 20 hspu 25 seconds, 20 pistols 2 minutes, unless I go at them not caring about my knees which is only something I will do if necessary to get to the games.

No chance of pistols and HSPU this week... ( I think)

Foucher vs. Brooks are the wrong people for that... Bridges and Panchik.. yes, because CFHQ want a battle and they will get that with them.

[B]Foucher vs. Brooks[/B] could be:
Push ups, burpees, box jumps, wall balls and double unders....

Why not put everything we hate in the same workout :) and rip our lungs to pieces....

[B]The ultimate ENGINE workout![/B]

I want there to be C2B again so someone on the broadcast staff can make a vaguely inappropriate joke.

It sure is Scott. I actually can crank out pistols pretty well. I also have crap knees but this does not really bother them. The HSPUs (if strict) would be a staring contest with the wall for most as after about 50-60 they will be done.

Best bet. Some people are either clueless or just like to argue.

See: "Why are the games in Imperial not Metric?" thread...

I remember being at regionals 2009, before kipping hspu had been invented, 12 guys kneeling looking at the wall, happy days. And that was just 15-12-9 Clean & Jerk and HSPU.

In case anyone is wondering programming was left to the regional organisers in 2009 not HQ and every regional had different workouts.

Going to be an ascending ladder, and I think the rope/guns picture is going to imply wall ball shots and doubles. Maybe 10-10, 20-20, 30-30, etc... for 9-11 minutes.

There was a pool table on Castro's instagram this morning as well. Likely hinting at something. Talked about getting engines ready. I guess it is time to breath ? Hopefully.

And Scott I remember that too, seems like a long time ago....how things have changed. The first Friday night in the HDC at the Games 2010 was like a ghost town, and now sold out.
