[B]Chris[/B]…about the visi-belt, LOL. Sounds like your rules are more screwed up than ours. Unless your deployed to our unit’s favorite location. There you have to wear one outside your jacket, not just around your waist. Another on your backpack if wearing one, and even walking to the Cadillac if your living in the transient tent city (and there are no vehicles there). Last I heard, the NCO’s were trying to color code the various visi-belts according to rank.

Well we are also supposed to wear the belt outside your blouse if you are outside after dark (which isnt a terrible rule here actually since people dont pay attention when they are walking or driving here). I didnt hear anything about color coding but it wouldnt surprise me.

[B]Linda[/B]...thanks for the additional advice on the foam rolling. It's just one of those things that seems too incredible to work. I needed a couple testimonials. Much appreciated. My quads are still sore from doing TSE three days ago, so I am willing to try anything.

[B]Chris[/B]...if you want to have fun with your visi-belt.... This works using two V-belts, especially if you have colored ones. Anchor both of them with one end to above your head. Cross them and then have two guys stretch them down and grip them like they were holding a two handed sword. Take a flash picture. Makes it look like they are fighting with light sabers. :rofl:

[B]Steve[/B]...rolling pin...yeah...I was getting desperate. Did make my legs feel better for a little while though.

[B]Charlie!![/B] Rolling pin?!? You must have really been desperate! I hate to say that I laughed at my visual of you with a rolling pin, but I did.

[B]Scott[/B] - Really good to hear from you again! You've had some memory loss however - you put burpees in the category of "good stuff". ;)

Today - 08/14/09
11AM workout in the gym with Bill

Stetching, run to gym, row 500m

About 45 minutes working on those @#$!& pull-ups. I did about a million jumping pull-ups, some holds above the bar, some negatives. It just doesn't seem to be doing any good. :bonk:

Push-ups with a 15-second hold at the bottom on the last rep - 3X10 (failed on hold at about 10 seconds each round)

Push presses with just the bar - 3X15

Walked home. After 5 days on, I was too tired to run up the hill and still a bit paranoid about being mowed down by a car. Rest tomorrow and tennis on Sunday.

Holy macaroni! I've just done Cindy once and I got 13 rounds. It's a fun one!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Thank you. Diane! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe.

I did a Tabata with our noon group. (not very wise after doing Cindy in the morning but some of our young Navy boys got me fired up)
Pull-ups- (trashed me)- 12, 7, 5, 0,0,0,9, 9.
Push-ups-19,17, 12,9,9,9,8,8

I hope I am able to just 'chill' when I reopen from 3:30-6:30pm.

Oly Lifting seminar tomorrow at the Oak Harbor facility with Coach Mike Burgener. WooHoo! Coach stopped in this morning so he and his son, Cody, could workout. Wow! It is awesome being in his presence!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Checking back in after an unintended hiatus (work, vacation, family, work, etc). Great to see all the new folks.

You're a legend and inspiration. Not sure if you remember me, but I stopped in and visited your box about 3 years ago when visiting my brother in Burlington.

[B]Diane M., Chris, Skip, Bill, and a few others I'm sure I missed[/B]
Belated welcome.

Happy Birthday, (belatedly)

[B]John B,[/B]
Strong WB work! One of my many Achilles' heels.

Excellent work on the PR's! Especially for two WOD's in one day.

"Linda" 10-9-8-...3-2-1 of 1.5 bwt DL; bwt BP; .75 bwt squat cleans
DL @ 226# (1.49 bwt)
BP @ 147# (.97 bwt)
SC @ 114# (.75 bwt)
Time = 30:51, PR by 2+ minutes and at nearest rx'd yet. "Linda" says the CFSB is working. BP's were slowest by far. Let "Linda" sub for my DL and BP strength bias workouts this week.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 04:36 AM.
