Been really a slackin'!

Did my first competition in a while...

Something with snatches, wall balls, clean and jerks, deadlifts, rowing, TTB, pull-ups and double unders. It was a partner WOD thing so, not really anything to document.

Still trying to keep up with my pull-up/Push-up challenge. On day 86 with Push-ups and day 37 with pull-ups. I also run a mile when I get a chance.

Last few WOD's I can recall

Amazing how you get better at something while working on it.

Been doing a workout here and there but nothing crazy - have the Tough Mudder on Saturday, after that I'm starting the Gymnastics Bodies program.

Jason David 09-14-2016 06:49 AM

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
Have ben running a bit as well. Not a ton.

Jason David 10-07-2016 08:08 AM

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
So - update. Just finished 3 weeks of my new gymnastic bodies program. It was a bumpy start not really knowing what I was doing or where to progress etc but after 3 weeks it's starting to come together. I'm working hard on the stretching portions and am starting to feel better.

I'm clearly weak in the areas I've neglected and strong in the areas I haven't.

I'm doing this for a few reasons...

#1. I'm way too inflexible. It's embarassing actually. I've neglected it for far too long and feel it needs some dedicated time.

#2. i feel it's probably a good way to learn progressions for new people as well as an aging population of recent additions to the gym.

This isn't a knock against any CF gymnastic programming but I wanted a program to follow - people are always doing different barbell programs - it's similar to that. Just a gymnastic version.

I'm in the initial stages of the program and will update periodically.

Jason David 01-06-2017 02:09 PM

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
Just an update here. Still following along on the gymnastics thing. It's going well, making progress etc.

Getting through the holidays was rough - too much eating/drinking etc but feeling good now after dialing it in on Tuesday :-) (Monday was an observed holiday)

Here's what i've noticed so far.

I was terribly inflexible. Super tight. I won't blame CrossFit because that's dumb. CrossFit requires capacity in flexibility as well as strength. But strength and metcon was what I pretty much focused on for years. At the expense of basic gymnastics and flexibility.

Holding a proper hollow position for even a few seconds was super hard in the beginning. Being able to do a smooth 'rock and roll' was almost impossible. Could barely touch my toes with locked knees. My lumbar spine was essentially 'locked' in the curved position.

I think this put me in a position to get injured...and injured quite often. I'm about 3 full months in and will post back in another 3. The only 'cardio' or conditioning I've been doing has essentially been warmups. One mile run once a week, 2K Row, 10 Min Bike or 300 double unders.

I'll be able to keep running through the winter though because I just got a Trueform!

That's about it.

Jason David 03-27-2017 11:26 AM

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
So hadn't done a metcon since September, still signed up for the open...

Ended up doing better than I expected and didn't get hurt.

WOD

17.1
213

17.2
78

17.3
57

17.4
165

17.5
16:45

Didn't get to HSPU on 17.4 and still can't do a dang bar muscle up but, all in all, very happy.

Back to my regularly scheduled stretching. Mobility is much better since I started. Plan on keeping it up for a minimum of a year.

Jason David 04-01-2017 10:42 AM

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
500m row for time
1:37.3
Hadn't done that in a while. Can't check my pr because I have to re-log in every time i hit a dang button in here

Jason David 10-18-2017 03:55 AM

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
Been a while...

Still been stretching, mixing in ROMWOD with gymnastics bodies...I hate rowing so much that I've been using it in mini wods about once a week.

Last few mini wods were..

Run 400m
