No towers or anything to climb where I live....everything is flat. But Yosemite Half Dome is only a few hours away. That makes a great hike/climb...it s about an 8 hour hike to the top.

[B]Monday 091019[/B]
Worked on 1RM Squat Clean, did 215 lbs. Failed 225 lbs but got under it, just couldn't stand up. My max front squat is 235 lbs, so thinking I should eventually get there on squat cleans. Getting some coaching on this Wednesday.

3 rounds for time:
9 - dead lifts 235 lbs
12 - burpees
15 - wall balls 20 lbs

6:43

[QUOTE=Jeff Kilinski;682747]You strapped on 90lbs and did a pull up? Friggin' awesome![/QUOTE]

I held a dumbbell by my feet, actually. Thanks.

[QUOTE=Diane Dennis;682904][B]Jeff [/B] I really love your box-jump avatar. How high is that?[/QUOTE]

The box is the highest we have in our affiliate (not sure what it is in inches) but that's my son jumping it. It's probably half as tall as he is so if I'm 6ft tall it would be like a 3ft box jump to me. That's why I thought that shot was so cool.



[QUOTE=Daryll Krivanos;682771]Words fail to describe the experience of climbing ANY 60+ story skyscraper for time (Willis is 103 stories) . Nothing like it... I'd encourage any athlete to try a major stairclimb at least once.
[/QUOTE]


I've done the Hancock. Since I work in a 31 story building it was easy to workout but when it came time for the event it was a little underwhelming. The line to the start was a couple hours long and it only took about 15 minutes to do it. We might do the Hustle as an affiliate just as its for a good cause, the American Lung Association. I think as a CF group it could be fun.

As I said. Impressive. I've had a goal to do a pull up with the weight of one of my kids (70lbs) on my back. Not there yet.
