Thanks Bud!
[QUOTE=Jesse Emers;662147]Huge PR Nik! Thats some fast stuff, awesome effort.[/QUOTE]
Thanks Jesse, it is pushing myself that is doing it.
[QUOTE=Scott Jenkins;662304]Massive improvement there Nik and respect for getting after that sub 3 on your second round, must of been horrible to just miss it first time around. Great overall score also, your really improving fast mate, great to see it.[/QUOTE][/I]
Oh man Scott, I hit the buttong dead on3, and thought that was it. No way will I beat it on round 2. I hit round 2 as hard as I could and it just happened.

Great job with the DUs and Annie Nik. Your DUs seem to be improving nicely. I have a feeling those rafter pullups are alot harder than they look.

You are right, they are imposible. So I'll be working on them for a wile. Matbe in a year I might be able to hang on?!

I think I am closer on the DU's then i think, my shoulders were/are so sore from the HSPU's that my arms didn't want to work rogether at first.

[QUOTE=Nik Nichols;661999]"Barbara"

Five rounds, each for time of:
20 Pull-ups
30 Push-ups
40 Sit-ups
50 Squats
1. 3:00
2. 2:53
3. 3:51 (pushups started to break)
4. 4:17 (pushups and situps broke)
5. 3:29
total time 17:30

time befor was 19:40
time befor that was 22:43
All pullups C2B

My squats were on today, fast and steady. Pushups was the first to go, but only broke for a breath or two. Then situps went, but the same two breath and go break.

I feel like throwing up but not bad, no headache yet, ears are ringing and poping, but feel pretty good.[/QUOTE]

I'm late on this but great job. I'm impressed by your last round, wow ! :highfive:

Aw man, I have complete confidence that we will see a video of you doing them in the not too distant future!
I'm pretty sure the guy is a climber. Brad Johnson if you want to try googling him.

Hey Sailer, hows it going? It is all practice on the HSPU's I end up on my head more then I like. You will be down to one abmat quick enough and then flying through them without anything.

Re: Nik
 
Strong front squats Nik, I reckon you would of got the 220lb if you went for it on the second round, after all you got 215lb across the board, strong work. Did you feel like the bar was pulling you forwards towards the end, I nearly did not get up on my last rep.

Exactly. It was pulling me elbows down and forward, it was a fight for form. I am happy, I went at it thinking 225, but it wasn't happening. To make excuses, I didn't sleep well, and I have alot on my mind today, really destracted. But if I can get 215 destracted, I'm in a good place.

My short legs pay off sometimes!

Yeah we have mirrors in the globo and on my last rep I looked like a bird that had flown into a window with my pain stricken face and distorted arms.

You tried out the inverted burpee yet, it will be easy for you.

HAHA, yea me too, my right wrist started hurting on the 3rd round, but I just forced it out of my head, I can hurt for 3 reps. So I had the face as well.

I did the FS's at break, I'm thinking of hitting the challenge now. I will have to roll out of the inverted burpees, I can kip up maybe once, the rest i land on my feet, but to far back and fall back. The HSPU's will be tough today. We will see what kind of sweat I can generate. Oh and the purpee pullups will be on rings to beable to get the rightr height. My bar is to low for it.

Nik Nichols 09-15-2009 11:00 AM

Re: Nik
 
Ok tommi, you are an evil man, that challenge was no joke. I got 10rounds burpee pullups and 1 inverted burpee HSPU.

The burpee pullups were fun, I did them on rings to get the height needed all deadhang.
The inverted BHSPU's qwere death. by round 7 I could hardly roll out of the burpee. The HSPU I ended up on my head and kicked out of the rep, didn't count. I hate wasting effort, so from there on out I would end up on my head and refocus take a deep breath and push back out. I actually got good at doing that and took shorter breaks on my head.

Oh my quads got crampy in there somewhere, I guess from the inverted.

Killer workout!!

Challenge, 6 burpee pullups 6in above reach to ring deadhang pullups
3 inverted burpee HSPU's

Burpee pullups, you have it, do the burpee the jump is to the bar for a bullup.

Inverted burpee handstand pushup. start on your back, tuck your legs to your chest roll up onto your shoulders, THROW yourself forward rolling onto your feet , kickup to a handstand and do a pushup. That is 1 rep:rofl:

Sounds fun HUH? !

Good job on the challenge Nik! 10+ rounds sounds like a good score to me. I might give it a try tonight or tomorrow. What's the highest score on this challenge so far? Does ur head hurt from stayin on your head so long?

Thanks, no I have a thick skull, Tommi got 12 + rounds I think, I think there has been highter, but I'm not sure. Goo luck with it, the inverted ones were the hard part.

Yes, good job on the challenge Nik. Not an everyday workout, but at least the burpee-pull ups are quite effective whenever you´re limited with equipment, time or programming. :rolleyes:

Just throw some exercises in a hat and pick a couple out, whatever combination comes out its all good Nik or just pick some of your favourites and smash them together.

Nice work on the challenge also.
