Great work in bad conditions and busy times Nik, I imagine you in a business meeting shouting while swinging the KBS then just running out

Hi Nik, I haven't even held a 2 pood KB but I know that 36kg(2 pood) DB swings are a nightmare!

Did you have a go at the full rollouts? I will be taking my solid medicine ball to my parents house for practice, you almost palm the ball across the ground making it easier to tell where your limits are.

Happy Christmas for tomorrow!

Yea, I got a couple after taping. It is tough though. But I think I'm at that point of doing them in WOD's now, at least at the begining!!

Plus Vanessa showed me a muscle up transition that is closer to a muscle up then jumping or any other assist. So They are now on the menue. Oh and they are not kipping either, I tried to do some like that and it is harder for me.(as in I can't get one)

Close, RThere is the filthy fifty I was on box jumps and my boss came out and started talking about work and asking about this order and that. All the wile I'm still jumping!!:rofl: I even kept my count which I have the worst time with!!

Yea 2 pood is a ''man'' weight!! I only got 1 round and 7 reps at it, then I couldn't get it high enough and dropped to 60 lbs. I will try the roll out today and see If I can't give myself a black eye for Christmass!!:rofl:

Happy Christmass too you!!!

Back Squat 5-5-5-5-5 reps

latst time this time

1. 175lbs 1. 185lbs
2. 195lbs 2. 200lbs
3. 215lbs 3. 225lbs
4. 225lbs 4. 235lbs
5. 240lbs 5. 245lbs


Those last two sets were tough. Real tough, but happy with the 5 extra lbs

Scott and Mathew, I did those foot to hand rollouts, they aren''t as bad as I thought. I did one per round during the squats just to see. I didn't rep them just messing with it. I may video it so you guys can check form and want to see it.

Ok, so I missed a couple of workouts over the holiday. It sucked that I had to miss them, but I expected it. So my back is really sor on the upper left side, I don't know what I did, I guess i slept funny.

I went back and did 50 weighted back ext. to try to strech it out(it usually works) and 50 weighted situps. I was going to do some roll outs and couldn't. I went to put the bar on the rack and my back said no.

I so wanted to do todays WOD, but I don't know. The end of the year looks like crap right now.:ranting2:

Re: Nik
 
Sorry to hear your feeling some back pain, it will probably pass very quick if its just from sleeping wrong Nik, you got lots of workouts to pick from so one must be good.
