[QUOTE=Stephen R. Lampl;549054]Nancy,

Gee,[I][B] I wish[/B][/I] you were correct.....the first numbers were my bench presses.....I think I am permanently stuck with 4s and 5s for my dead hangs.....doesn't matter whether pronated, supinated, or close grip.....BLEH! :ranting2:[/QUOTE]

Oh...I see. Well, 4's and 5's are still good.

I think I'm giving up on the Recon Ron program and this is why....every time I try to do a lot of something, or push too much in any one movement....I seem to end up with an injury. Too many pull ups or push ups and I end up with wrist problems. Too much or too fast running, and I end up with calf injury.

Hard to admit, since I'm so competitive, but, I seem to be much better off in moderation. My new approach is to aim for as best as possible in as many areas as possible, while staying injury free. I'm going to readjust my goals, as, for example, I think for me, going for 10 deadhangs will probably just cause me wrist problems.

Husband's having similar issues with his cycling...riding with bike club full of guys in their 30's, and an ex-olympic cyclist...all the training and hard riding to try to keep up is starting to cause him some bad aches and pains.

Damn, I think we talked about this before too, and look, I didn't listen to myself, and I got a re-injury. :ranting2:

oh, sorry to hijack your log into being all about me....

[quote=Richard Macaulay;551276]Great work recently Stephen. Good CJ numbers, just gotta keep hitting that pull, especially if your jerks were solid, that can be the weakness for some.

And congrats on getting you C2, there amazing. iv got link to some great C2 drills if you want it. Put you through your paces?!

Ricky,

Thanks for the encouragement and suggestions! If you have links to drills or any advise, ship them/it my way, by all means! I can never have too much training info.

[quote=Helen Lawson;551329]Too bad about your achilles :crutch00:



But....:yeahthat::pepper::broc::kicking0:

I'm sooooooo proud of you![/quote]

Thanks, Helen. I'm not new to achilles injuries - - tore my left severely in 1980. I just need to get some sense into my head and stay off my feet (or at least not try to walk/run) for a few days.

As for the affiliation - - it's sure coming along. We may have a box soon; my acquaintance has just sent off all his paperwork. Maybe (but I'm not sure) there might be a different title next to my name sometime soon....

:pepper:

That's just awesome![/quote]

Hey, not problem, Justin. It seems every day now, we get a bit closer to being up and running. Looking for a box now and trying to figure out how large (or small) to get the "operation" off to a sensible start.

Thank you! Funny how things are but after I spent all that time belly aching about being stuck, I got a couple of 6s. Go figure.....

Unfortunately, I think I have gotten to be like Mark and you. I have become so blasted competitive that I just keep pushing. I think I'm just lucky and was out of shape long enough that I couldn't cause too much damage initially - - now my body is used to the abuse.....:D

I gave up Recon Ron a long time ago, but more because I have trouble staying with any one thing more than a little while (except for CrossFit in general). I should probably purchase some Woody Bands or at least, a couple of bicycle inner tubes for assists, so I can crank out some high rep pull-up drills. I just have gotten a lot of benefit from static holds, negatives, and jumping pull-ups.

There is no need to apologize! I really enjoy hearing about others' triumphs and tribulations. It assists me by letting me know what others are going through and perhaps, what I might expect at some time during my training.

Hope the calf is feeling better!

JR singles were a challenge with my sore R/Achilles - - kinda half one-leg jumped them......Score without JR singles was still 298. I was happy with the improvement!

[I][B]090327 FRIDAY [COLOR=Blue]MY 6 - MONTH CROSSFIT ANNIVERSARY!!

[COLOR=Black]Warm-up:
Stationary Cycling: [/COLOR][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=Blue][COLOR=Black]10:00 / L3 / 100 RPM / 2.6 miles
[B]CFWU X 2:
[/B]Added Shoulder Pass thrus X 10 X 2
Body Circles 5 X 2 (by ea. direction)
Trunk Rotations X 10 X 2

[B]WOD: (From Main Page)[/B][/COLOR][/COLOR][/I]
10 rounds for time of:
10 Pull-ups
10 Ring dips (subbed decline push-ups - feet on bench)
[B][I]TIME: 14:58[/I][/B]


[I]Tried some bar dips prior to doing this WOD. Bursitis in R/shoulder is apparently still going on. Could only get 11 or 12 full-ROM dips before my shoulder really started to protest. Tried bench dips - - still no dice. Reduced to push-ups.....:([/I]

[I]Pull-ups were kipped - - first round 5, 4, + 1; all the rest were by 2s....[/I]


[I][B]Squat Work:[/B][/I]
[I][B]Box Squat Practice[/B] (for strict form). All work was with 45# bar only.[/I]
[I][B]Warm-up: [/B]Air squats X 10 to bench.[/I]
[I][B]Working: [/B]High Bar position: 10, 10, 10. Low Bar position: 10, 10.[/I]
[I]These felt good and solid, but driving up through my heels from the bench was difficult, even with just 45#. Gonna keep the weight light until I really have this down.
[/I]

hey steve!!

good to see that you're listening to your body and being smart when you work out... there's nothing worse than being gungho and soldiering through a workout when you have [B]pain[/B]....

There you go, lots of nice sessions. Look at speed endurance training on that page....session 1....i gave that to scotty to, great workout. My dads always loved rowing, he tried that one once and got 9 times through it.
