[QUOTE=Scott Jenkins;855838]That's got to be it, your still fatigued from yesterday and hitting a workout in the morning like that is much harder than having the whole day to get the muscles warmed up for an evening attack. I always have a dodgy Saturday morning after the class Friday night.

The filming sounds brilliant, I hope you got sun glasses and the full stubble going on Nik, you definately gotta get some pics and post them up for us seeing as your not posting any workouts.[/QUOTE]

HAHA I will see what I can do, if nothing else I send out the movies to you guys if you want, if I can't get pics. It is supose to be about 30 to 40 min long. It is the ''next peisode'' in the story.

You have had some awesome WODs Nik. In re: walking handstands, the feet against the wall that I do is much easier and doesn't work the stabilizers/core anything like the real deal. I need to man up and go for it. The local h.s. football field would probably be a great place to go. Nice and soft landings.

That is where I did it. On the track. I was going to do it in the field, but it was wet. If you can get 1or2 steps I see it worth it. it took me 20 min to do and most of my steps were 2or3. It was fun.

I have done the wall walking, good sub, you can dtay up alot longet, it can be a killer.

Hey everyone. Well the filming went great, I got to be a securith gard for a mob boss in slacks and tank top and machine gon. Took all weekend to get the shots done, looks like the mivie will still take 6minths or more to finish. But I may get to post some shots this week.

On other news I am working on my car today(this morning) and Probably at lunch too, so I wont get much time on line because I'll we working on the car at breaks, so I'll catch up with everyone as quick as I can.

Eh, I haven't totaled in a wile, but it holds no apeal to me. If anything I'll try the hero if I can get time for it. I got to mess with the car at lunch, so if I get any time it will only be a few min. So I don't have tome for ''Forrest'' today. How was it by the way? Looks like you got a real good time.

Yeah I have no real urge to total, especially after watching lipson trying to break he's back on deadlifts, squeeze it off the floor!!!!! made my back hurt watching him.

I made a minor change to Forrest which made it easier seeing as towel pull ups do not fatigue your core as much as l-pull ups do so that was probably why my time looked quick.

You going to try and fit anything in today?

"Bulger"

Ten rounds of:
Run 150 meters
7 Chest to bar pull-ups
135 pound Front squat, 7 reps
7 Handstand push-ups


time 38:35

Great workout, Sorry we got to do it as a hero workout. God rest your soul Bulger, thank you and God bless your familly.

Runs ok, pullups unbroken, front squats unbroken but I took a breath or two at the top, not fast reps but good deep reps.

Hspu were the trick, all sets broken. but the lasat 5 sets were 5 reps the last set was 6 reps. I had to kip a few of the last reps on some sets, but all good reps

Breaks, run to pullup no break, small break inbetween pullup to front squats, I just couldn't will myself onto the bar right away, few breaths and then I was off. Then HSPUS all broke, but real happy with it.

Ernie Guevara 10-19-2010 07:04 AM

Re: Nik
 
Great stuff there nik! Another early wod to wake you up for the rest of the day!!! I knew the hspus were gonna be the breaker in this wod! Congrats on getting everything else unbroken. Did you power clean the bar for the front squats?

Scott Jenkins 10-19-2010 07:09 AM

Re: Nik
 
Thats strong getting all the pull ups and front squats unbroken and not too broken on the hspu's either, looking forward to hitting this now. Pleased that everyone has to join us with the C2B standard pull up today :D

No off the rack, My pullup rack is also thye squat rack, if there isn't a weighted bar on the back side of it I will pull it over during pullups so it made sence to leave the bar on the rack.

Thanks on the workout, with your strenth you will beat me for sure.

Thanks Scott, I mached my old pr, but just couldnt press out the last bit. Shoulders were the weekness. But I'm real happy with it, I did more weight total.

Accidently push press 100K that is funny. I accidently drop bars, not press hugh!

"Brenton"

Five rounds for time of:
Bear crawl 100 feet
Standing broad-jump, 100 feet

With 20pound vest
time13:30

didn't stop but once on the secon bear crawl, it cought me by suprise at how much harder the second round was on the crawl stopped once. Then all the crawls were slow, but unbroken.

Burpees were a bump even with a vest, it was only 3 reps.

Jumps were slow and as big as I could get.

No gaming just go. My goal was just to keep at it as fast I could. But broad jumps were slow, hop reset hop. The vest made it just a bit tricky.


Thank you Brenton for your service, God rest your soul and bless your familly.

Scott Jenkins 10-21-2010 07:08 AM

Re: Nik
 
Nice work Nik, your plan of just pushing through sounds like the way to go. Looks like bear crawls with a vest would severely tax the core.

Great programming I must add as with broad jump workouts people tend to not go for max distance and with the burpees after every 5 it makes everyone want to get more distance out of each jump.

You are right on the programming, that is exactly what I did, pushed the jumps to save on burpees.

Lower back is a little tired, I guess the burpees and vest got to it all though I didn't feel anything during the workout.

Sometimes broad jumps can irritate the back with the jolt on the landings, its the sort of irritation that goes away quickly so hopefully you will be good for tomorrow Nik, just keep those muscles loose with some heat.

Oh yea, it really isn't anything, minor disscomfort is all, a little streching will do it. It could have been the broad jump too, I really don't know, nothing hurt during the workout, just a bit sore now.
