Cliff, maybe I can help. Wall Climbs you start in the pushup position with your feet up against a wall. Then walk your feet up the wall until your chest is against the wall. Then walk back down the wall to the original position. They are killer.

Questiion for everyone. Where do you get your WOD's from?

I used to cherry pick from different affiliate sites, but recently made a commitment to the main site so I wouldn't just work on my favorite exercises.

I likewise use the main site. Sometimes this leave me with some unwise combination given the strength bias in my hybrid combo of Wendler cycles and crossfit. Monday I did a WOD containing burpees right after heavy back squats. My butt is still sore. Tomorrow is heavy deadlifts.

thanks for the info on wall climbs. i think i will be waiting on them until my shoulder is 100%.

they do sound like quite the movement however.

2/9 workout

Small Group Training with Becky at SBAC. Interesting mix of work, including chucking medicine balls as high in the air as possible, both from squat and underhand, flipping heavy bag end-over-end, pushups with feet in TRX stirrups, and pull ups while lying on sliding incline plane. Represented myself pretty well.

Cliff, Wall Climbs WILL tax your arms & shoulders. If you're not comfortable that you shoulder can take it, SCALE!! Do a search for Wall Climb scaling on the main site!

One of the guys was told to stop doing the Wall Climbs in the Base Globo "...because Area B gym (Base Globo) staff told me they were not allowed..." Guess he "scared the straights"!;)

Jack, I use the CrossFit Wright Patt site ([URL="http://crossfitwrightpatt.com/"]http://crossfitwrightpatt.com/[COLOR=Black] ) for my WODs. We run about a month or so behind the main site. I'm also looking into incorporating the Gymnastics WOD [/COLOR][/URL][URL="http://gymnasticswod.com/"](http://gymnasticswod.com/ or [/URL][URL]http://www.crossfitgymnastics.com/[/URL][URL="http://gymnasticswod.com/"])[/URL][URL="http://crossfitwrightpatt.com/"][COLOR=Black]as part of my workouts.[/COLOR][/URL]

[B]WU:[/B]
400m run

[B]WOD:
[/B]5 RFT: 20 GHD Sit-ups
5 Push jerk, 135#

12:00.33

[B]Cash Out:[/B]
a couple of head stands

[I]This was the 1st time I did Push Jerks, so my form wasn't the best. Had to do it alone in the base Globo while our box is being renovated, so I followed Tony Budding's advice & went to a lower weight to try and focus on speed. Felt good about the WOD.

Thinking of doing the 100 push ups & toes to bar for time...

Back to below the knee tonight, but my weight went up. Its light weights, but my coach said I could add 20kg to my snatch right now if I can get consistent with good technique.... its a work in progress....I did have some pretty nice snatches tonite, a gymmate told me I did well tonite, nice to hear. :) Hopefully get stronger and better.
