I did Fran today for the very first time! :kicking0: That was fun! I went light - 45# - on thrusters but tried to keep them unbroken. The trainer said she'd never heard me breath so heavy. :rofl: My pullups still suck (excuse my French), but they are getting better too. Next time I will definitely try a little heavier for the thrusters.

The guys in class went heavier (so few of us there at 6 AM), so while they were finishing up, I did some core work.

Deb B thanks for the avatar. Did "Cindy" today and reminded myself to anchor a small stability ball to do form checks on the squat depth.

Did 20 rounds plus 5 Pull up. This is one more round than the last time. Used a check sheet for hash marks. The time broke down like this: 1st 10 rounds in 8:48, next five at 14:11. and last five in 20:05. I checked the stop watch after the five pull ups.

Taking a break from lifting heavy weights may just be leaving me more energized for the metcons.

sorry for so many posts (can't find that edit button!)
[B]John W[/B] that IS strong work.
[B]Dave[/B] your PR on Cindy is [B]27 rounds[/B]?? Wow! and [B]Pat[/B] did 20 rounds Terry did 18. :highfive:How do you guys go so FAST??? Im like, the s-l-o-w-e-s-t one at my gym.
[B]Jeff[/B] RE SB - is there some percentage of 1RM or something you work from? When fives, triples, singles come up at our gym, I just try to use a weight where I'll get some reps but fail at the end.

Deb, My 1RM keeps improving so I do the same, pick a progression in which I plan to fail at the end, although I do eyeball it in a way. Some on the board think the if you are still in a linear progression at CF than you are not "intermediate" enough to undertake CFSB. BS. I've been CF'ing for about a year, I got the moves down and I'm constantly improving my technique on the Oly's. Besides, CFSB is a good recipe to work from and I like the strength work combined with Metcons.
