Thanks for the Kudos on the DL's everyone.

I have to figure out why this forum no longer notifies me when there are more messages.

4-22-12 Sunday

1000 M Row
25 box step up/downs 18"
25 Wall ball shots 20#
25 kb swings 70#
25 front squats 65#

11:57

Felt pretty good. Been off a few days working on house/home projects. Life is getting interesting family/career stuff. I may contact the artist who drew my avatar and see if he can show the terrain (life) as being a bunch of high and lows instead of one long mountain slipe. It makse more sense that way.

Are there any birthday WOD's you folks know about? Maybe I will do a filthy 55 next month in celebration of turning 55.

4/23 WOD

Clean and Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
135-145-155-165f-160f-160

Followed by 1 round of Max Unbroken Push Ups
(no more than 1 second rest at the top or bottom…none of the three-point-football-stance-rest nonsense of 2010)
35.

Pulled pretty badly with arms at 135 clean and jerk, but thereafter pleased with how little pulling there was. Fail at 165 because of lots of arm pulling. Fail at 160 was at push jerk after a successful squat clean. Both squat cleans at 160 felt pretty good. Even though I failed at my one-rep max of 165, I still feel like this was a very good day of Oly lifting. Weighed in at 157 after coming home, so 160 is definitely a legitimate bodyweight clean and jerk

Max pushups after all that cleaning and jerking was just mean, and the wiseguy comment about the 2010 debacle didn't help either. If you want me to do a bunch of push ups, you have to let me do them my way. :)

4/24

WU: 50 single unders, high knees, butt kicks, RC and general mobility warmup

Workout: 4 RFT
Run 1/4 mile
12 double unders
16:09 (total run time 6:42)

Cashout: Walk 1/4 mile, t-spine mobility

First two sets of double unders went pretty well; even managed a couple of multiple strings. By the third and fourth sets, though, I was having trouble with consistent single unders. Funny how that oxygen debt interferes with coordination. ;)

4/24 WOD

Went in to open gym to get my first muscle up or die trying. Well, I didn't die. Got 12 of them in about an hour, including twice linking two together. But this is the first (video slightly NSFW) [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0kYNL5bAgI[/url]
