[QUOTE]Powersnatch, he was trying to get me to only pull to armpits, stop that pulling the bar to my head. Touch and go, some reps fine, some not so. I understand what Im supposed to do - just can't do it all the time w/multiple reps and when the weight gets heavier, tendency to revert to upper body strength.[/QUOTE]
its tug the bar up w/hips, GET UNDER WHEREVER THE BAR IS.
My power lifts are all still Crossfitter lifts - pull/place the bar; he said I rotate around where bar is. dont forget that.

glad to hear all are safe from the storms back east

back at it again. great weekend. poor start to the week but today is a new day.

this past weekend my coach and i went to buckly washington to learn about loggers sports. saturday was learning sunday was competing

never had done the single or double cross buck. that's the one with the 6' saw.

my coach and i came second in the double crossbuck

i came 6th in the single crossbuck and beat my coach by 3 seconds

i came first in the ax throw beating my coach by 1 point

i was unable to do the standing chop due to my shoulder. i took a couple of swings and quickly realized it would not be happy if i tried the full chop.

came 4th in the chokermans race.

i ended up 7th overall missing one event and my coach won the entire thing.

what a great start to my 50th year.

to bad i had to come back to real life.....:)

8/31 WOD

AMRAP 20 Min
6 Burpees
9 Hang Power Snatch (75#/55#)
12 Double Unders

9 rounds + 6 burpees as Rx'd.
Something about knocking out 81 hang power snatches really helped dial the movement in. Also, some pretty funny counting going on. Mike Mac was watching Eli and knew he lapped him; I was watching Mike Mac and knew he lapped me; and Danette was watching me and knew I lapped her. Hence we had accurate counts of 11, 10, 9, and 8 rounds. Awesome! Who says Crossfitters are competitive anal retentive type-A personalities?

Thanks for all the encouragement, guys and gals. That is one of the things that keeps me going to my 'box', is how nice and supportive everyone is there. The same here.

Very impressive DL's there William. Nice going.

Tonight was a gym night. Did back and abs with my trainer who is a bodybuilder and a crossfitter. Felt like an hour of WOD's. Lot's of supersets of pulldowns/dead lifts/pull ups with various ab exercises.

My coach was talking to me about the importance of keeping a journal to track progress. I realized that is just what I am doing here. Thanks guys!

Tomorrow the WOD is a backsquat max for one rep. We'll see what I am made of. :yikes:

Tuesday 8_31_11[/B]
Warmup of sorts
2 mile brisk walk
contrast shower, trigger point, foam roll & stretch

OMG that trap is so sore!! I got it all released w/the contrast shower (that worked better than the epsom salts, go figure!) but can see the constant peering at a computer screen is not good for it. GPP today - dont even know what to do. Pushups probably, or maybe burpee box jumps?? OMG Im a dead woman! :p
