7/19
WU: Row 600m; upper body mob; hip and hamstring stretches; squat 70, 85X5
Lift: Squat 105, 120, 140X3, 155X6
Assist: 55# good mornings X5X10; lunges X5X10
WOD: Isabel (Scaled)
PVC snatch X 30 reps
3:37
Cash out: PVC OH squats; 10# snatch

Small victories. During the snatch workout was getting the shoulder mobility improved and better bar position at the top. All of the PVC OH squats were with good body position.

7/20
WU: Row 600m; upper body mob; hamstring work; bench 75, 95X5
Lift: Bench 115, 130, 150X3, 170X8
Assist: Push-ups X4X10; 50# DB rows X4X10
WOD: Fran (scaled)
45# thrusters and assisted pull-ups 10, 10, 10, 10, 5
5:52
Cash out: 45# KB swings X20; balance beam X 2:00

Small defeats: Shoulder quite sore and stiff after the thrusters. Uncomfortable to raise arm overhead or to put hand behind back. The "good news" is that it doesn't hurt where it used to hurt after the labrum tear. I think I'll do a leg heavy WOD tomorrow. ;)

just bend at knees and shrug. Less power than Oly or power. My coach uses these as warm ups. When you then do the whole lift it is so much easier.

[QUOTE=Pat Quigley;1079266]... Holding at the bottom is tough--yet I think it really helps to lock into the brain the "bottom" of a back squat...[/QUOTE] Especially when the instructor says, "You didn't HAVE to do that!" :D

Alden - Hang on to the good stuff and work on the goats!! Nice work out!!

Claw - Boy, can I relate!! And you're the speed demon!!

[B]WU:[/B]
Run .98mi UP Area B Hill (175ft elevation)
400m run
2 rounds;
3 Wall Walks
10 Push Ups
15 Air Squats

5 Rope climbs (~12ft)

[B]WOD:[/B]
3 rounds:
100m sprint
3 Rope ascents
2 Wall Walks

100m walk back to start

Didn't bother to time it!!

[I]Forgot how much I missed rope climbs - and brutal they are!! The only saving grace was that it wasn't in the upper '90's with 100% relative humidity! I was glad that I was able to still climb since Jan '11! Did my best to avoid rope burns!! ;)[/I]

William, I agree. Just getting WOD is the only key feature.

100 du
30 kb snatch w 53 #
Scale: 50# db and 3:1 jumps

Bill H - Looking forward to the day when rope climbs and pull-ups are only hard and not painful ;) But most every day is progress so I can't complain.

Not much "lead in my pencil" today. Late night last night with friends; big dinner with wine so I didn't sleep well.

95# [I]Hadn't done these in a while. Wasn't getting low enough into the squat.[/I]

then

4RFT:
400m run
15 Pull ups

15:08

[I]Was supposed to be Chest to bar pullups. I scaled to as high as I could get 'em pull ups! Just focused on being consistent! And I wasn't the slowest one on the board!!

On a somber note, my brother-in-law passed away this morning. It was way too early for him (he was only 58), but since he had suffered much over the last four years, he is at peace. And at least all his children were able to see him before he passed. It's another reminder to be thankful for CrossFit and that I'm able to do WODs, and what a great bunch of folks all the crossfitters are!![/I]
