3 rounds CF warm-up.

225# deadlifts for 30 minutes.
2 a minute for 5 minutes
3 a minute for 5 minutes
4 a minute for 5 minutes
5 a minute for 5 minutes
6 a minute for 5 miunutes
7 a minute for 5 minutes
for a total of 135 225# deadlifts.

2 of us did the workout together with one bar. He began his at the top of the minute...mine at the bottom, so we had to complete the reps in 30 seconds.

I thought death by deadlift was bad @135.... That sounds killer!!!!!!
Its one of my goals to get at least a 280 lb. deadlift someday.:)

[B]Skip[/B]…Hotel Sierra, what a work out. Gotta try it sometime.

[B]Deb[/B]…Most “sand box” deployment locations have contracted food services. Naturally, the contractor operates as cheaply as he can. On top of that, the DoD has heavy handed food safety standards (actually selective food safety standards). Most of the meat tastes horrible, is grotesquely over cooked, and is kept warm in a water bath. Blech. Boiled eggs are way over done to the point of oxidizing the sulfur in the yolk (black color). Nasty. On top of that, it is fairly common to “live on” pepto tabs for 2 to 3 weeks until your insides settle down from what ever bugs or substances are in the food. Okay, I’ll get off the soap box now.

[B]Tom[/B]…inre sticking to the zone…amen brother! I tend to do well at beakfast and lunch and not so good when I get home again.

[B]Diane[/B]…some pretty impressive DL’s there. Glad to hear the catering biz is taking off. Must be great to be your own boss.

Tried the Double Under/Sit-up WOD for 120 sec of DU, then 120 of SU, 90/90, 60/60, 30/30.

Haven’t jump roped in a while and it showed. Gave up on the DU’s pretty quickly and just did single jumps. Then I screwed up the sequence, then got back on track. Gave up counting and just plowed through the WOD.

After a short break I practiced a few DU’s and then did 100 single jumps, 100 alternating, another 100 singles, and then 100 alternating. Did them back to back with no break.

Lots of doctor appointments today. I am going to have an umbilical hernia repaired next week which will take me down for a bit. I asked the doc when I could work out again. He said, “Two weeks,” thinking I meant walking or easy bike riding. Then I explained about heavy squats and such. He laughed and corrected himself to, “six weeks”. But he also mentioned I would figure things out soon enough since the discomfort will guide me. I’ll definitely start very, very easy, but I just can’t stop.

[B]Tom,[/B]
IMHO, food quality is the most important factor. Its quite difficult to overeat quality foods, especially vegetables and meats. A bit easier to overdo the fruit and nuts, although not the same as bingeing on pizza and donuts. If your pee stays mostly clear, your probably drinking enough water. You need to adjust your diet to what works for you and to something you can maintain, preferably for life.

[B]Diane D., [/B]
Excellent trade on the clothes for bands!

[B]Diane M,[/B]
Admire your fortitude. I have a really hard time totally abstaining from anything I like. Hope its working for you.

[B]Deb,[/B]
Hard to find anything wrong with your day's food.

[B]Skip,[/B]
Beastly WOD. That makes me sore just thinking about it. I've never tried more than about 45 reps or so at that weight in one WOD.

[B]Charlie,[/B]
I'm sure you'll use your hard-earned wisdom in starting back up after a hernia repair. You'll definitely be able to maintain a lot of your conditioning with some light endurance work.

[B]Deb[/B] - 280# DL goal - WOW!! My DL goals include two new PRs before my 51st b-day in October and 200# by mid March. I don't think I can conceive of 280#!!

[B]Charlie[/B] - Oh lord, your food story is horrible!! The egg thing about turned my stomach. It's easy to under-appreciate the sacrifices made by our soldiers.

[B]Skip[/B] - Great DL WOD! What was the 7/minute round like?

[B]John[/B] - Way to go on not quitting!!!

Today - 08/19/09
6AM group (of 1) workout on the North Shore with Patrick

No metcon today:

3X20 bulgarians (each leg)

3X10 push-ups with legs elevated on bench seat
3X10 push-ups (regular) (failed at 5 on 3rd round)
3X10 push-ups with hands on bench seat (failed at 7 on third round)
1X10 push-ups with hands on bench back

3X
30 bench dips (round 2 - 18/12, round 3 - 19/11)
10 triceps push-ups on bench

A lot of teeth-gritting and "Arrghs" on the push-ups but no gasping for breath or profuse sweating! Nice break from that "I think I'm going to collapse" feeling!!

Charley, good luck with the surgery. I have a prostate biopsy this afternoon and will be out for a while. This is the second after a negative two years ago. I may be as addicted to this board as crossfit so I'll still be around.:)

I did the 090818. This is a Push Press: 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1.

reg warm up was supplimented with Military Press: 10 X 95, 5 X 135.

155, 175, 185, 200, 195, 195, 205. The 200 seemed very tough so I backed down. The 205 went up easier than I thought that it would be. I've done a regular press at 200 a few months ago. Some of my heavier lifts have felt more difficult over the past month or so. I have attributed this to a 12 lb wt. loss over the past 2+ months. My waist has also shrunk from a 44 to 40.5 over that time. This is a result of doing more consistent Paleo. I'm in my 10th month of crossfit. Frankly, I've enjoyed the improvements in the metcons more than lifting heavy. (Sorry for rambling!)

Total for the morning: 1310 lbs.:kicking0:
