PM to you......Take care!

[I][B]090306 FRIDAY

REST DAY[/B][/I]

[I]I really [B]WANT[/B] to go work out and make up for yesterday's dismal stuff.......have a LOT of energy today.

This is a probably a prime example of the necessity to lay off for a day and really let my body recover.......:([/I]

[QUOTE=Stephen R. Lampl;532529]WOD: "Barbara"
Five rounds, each for time. Rest precisely 3:00 between rounds.
20 pull ups
30 push ups
40 sit ups (unanchored)
50 squats
TIME: 5:20 / 5:41 / 6:44 / 6:31 / 6:23
As Rx'd, except for pull ups jumped on last round.

[/B]This was my first "Barbara" ever. I messed up with the stop watch on the 3rd round and so I added a minute to the time it showed. It was probably closer to 30 sec.

[B]Note: [/B]Had a couple of neat things happen:
[B]Pull ups: [/B]Managed to kip [COLOR=Red][B]10 in a row (PR for reps!)[/B][COLOR=Black]in the first round! As I got tired, there just wasn't enough room to kip with my poor form, hence the jumping pull-ups.
[/QUOTE]

Steve. Nice "barbara"! Just to do it as Rx'd the first time is great, never mind how long it took you!

And, the pull-ups! We've all worked so hard at our pull-ups that any pull-up PR is worth celebration! :highfive:

[QUOTE=Stephen R. Lampl;533010]

[COLOR=Blue]255# (old PR - I think)[/COLOR]
[COLOR=Red]265#
275#
285#
295#
300# - PR! (Had to try, since I was so close on Rd. 7) :pepper::pepper:

[COLOR=Black]Weighted Pull ups
20# X 2, 2, 2, (F - OH), 2, 1, 1 = 10.
[/COLOR][/COLOR]

[/B][/I][/QUOTE]

Awesome DL PR! :pepper: And weighted pull-ups on the same day! Wow...You are an animal! :notworth:

BTW... What has all this hard work done to your body? Have you lost/gained weight? Change in size? I'd love to see your before & after pictures!

Re: Steve's "I'm not aging quietly" log
 
Thanks for the kind words, Helen.

I've lost just under 25# since I started CF at the end of Sept. Was doing Weight Watchers too, so that has helped. I have no idea about my current body comp, but according to the charts in the Zone book, I should be at about 23% BF. The same charts put me near 28% in October. I need to find someone with calipers or get hydrostatically tested.
I never did take a "before" set of pix or measurements. I do notice a change tho - - middle-aged spread is going away and there may be some abs hiding under my waning "spare tire.". :rofl: I know one thing for sure; I feel and am a whole lot stronger than when I started!

As I've said before....I. LOVE. CROSSFIT!

Well do a little something, some press up BW squats, sit up, in aa wee circuit. Take a walk....Its active recovery!

On your question in Vanessa log about squats, id start with high bar presonally. Low Bar i feel, takes some one on one coaching!

Hey thanks, Ricky! Yup - - I'll probably do a little something tomorrow after I travel.

Appreciate your take on the squats. I did it wrong for many years - - always high bar and wrong stance. Since doing CF and noting Coach Rip's reasoning, I can see how eventually the low bar position is so strong and stable. Problem is.....I am NOT! Cert really helped my form so I'm anxious to load up the old bar - - but I need to put the old ego on the shelf and just work on form....
