@Bill H - Thanks. Appreciate it.

11/5
Workout: Row 1km; walk 1 mi; pull-ups BW x10/ +21 x7,6,5; front plank 2:00; KB press 25 x10x3/ 35 x10

A couple of physical therapy sessions and lots of "quality time" working on a trigger point in my glute medius has me feeling better. Still hurts to get up after I sit and it takes a minute or two to stand up straight but I can now walk and do most other stuff without pain. :kicking0:

JT, AGREED with what Cliff said! One of the things I liked about CrossFit was encouraging those not at our levels. Yeah, we'll give each other what for, but I make sure we all know it's in fun! I just don't get disrespecting other folks...

Nice job on the rows (and Presses), Bill S!

Awesome squat work Cliff! Hope your lags feel better!

I intended to do the KB swings back to 1 but boredom and sore glutes made me rethink that.

Bill...150 Wall Balls sounds brutal. I wouldn't be able to walk for a week.

@Alden, glad to hear you are on the mend.

Thursday November 7, 2014

10 TGUs on each side with a 20# KB.
On one of these, every vertebrae in my back popped in a rippling rifle shot progression. After the initial shock it felt great.

Rowing Research
Rowing For Distance versus Rowing For Calories
Many people have asked me about strategies for rowing for time vs. rowing for calories. My research discovered that the Concept2, which was initially known as an ergometer ("Erg"), doesn't actually measure distance but instead measures force applied (e.g., ergs). It computes distance from the ergs. After poking around I found the erg equation. The erg equation includes a quadratic term. The distance equation is a second derivative of the erg equation and thus is linear. Therefore, as you speed up, the rate at which calories are counted increases exponentially while the distance covered increases linearly. Here's some data points from yesterday's experiment

I rowed 1 minute at each of the following speeds, and recorded the average watts, distance, calories, and calories per her. As you can see, the calories increase exponentially and the distance increases linearly, with the big inflection point in the exponential curve being around 1:50/500.

time/500 watts distance calories cal/hour
4:00 25 125 6 387
3:40 32 135 6 410
3:20 43 149 7 447
3:00 59 159 8 480
2:40 83 185 9 582
2:20 120 210 11 713
2:00 191 249 15 956
1:40 320 291 23 1339

So what does all that mean? It means, if you're rowing for distance, going a little faster gets you to the finish line a little faster. If you're rowing for calories, going a little faster gets you to the finish line a LOT faster, especially if you can go faster than 1:50/500m.

The combined rowing data from yesterday and today:
As I fill this in we'll be able to plot the distance vs. calorie curve more accurately.
Right now it is shaping up to have a beautiful linear vs. exponential curve contrast

Bill S - Yeah doing "karen" drains everything out of you! The only saving grace for that WOD was the 2 min rest.

Alden - awesome WOD!

JT- That rowing stuff sure looks interesting especially for a data rat like me!

[B]WU:
[/B]
10 leg swings on each leg for both directions

[B]WOD:[/B]
20 min AMRAP:
10 C2B Pull Upd
10 HR Push Ups
10 Ring Dips
10 HSUPs

4 rounds + 1 C2B PU

[I]The C2B's were actually the easy part o the WOD! This one smoked my shoulders![/I]
