LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATION AT CFSD, DAY 1.

[/B][/I]Well.....color me even more enthused than I've been since I started CF! Absolutely priceless to be able to put into practice (with proper correction), the fundamental movements of CrossFit. Trainers are [B]awesome![/B]

We did some Tabata BTB squats today also......I was hoping for a bit better, but I'll take my score of [B]9[/B] happily - - These were [I][B]hard![/B][/I] Legs were NOT happy....

Fran went quite a bit better. I scaled back from my previous Fran to raise intensity. Today:
21 - 15 - 9 of:
75# Thrusters
Jumping Pull-ups
[B]Time = 6:20[/B] (Previous: 02/18/2009 as Rx'd at 11:33).

Looking forward to tomorrow's training and workout(s)![/QUOTE]

Awesome, Steve! :highfive: Can't wait for another report!

Hey Steve! Great to finally meet you. I had a blast this weekend and am ready to get this stuff implemented in my training. Keep up that great enthusiasm and positive attitude!

[quote=Aushion Chatman;530111]Awesome Steve, it was great to meet you, you have a great attitude and would be a blast to train with I think. Hope you had a great time down at CFSD...come back anytime![/quote]

Aush,

It was great to meet you also! Thanks for the complement - - I did have a great time there at the cert and at CFSD. It was also great to meet Trish and Chris - great people also. I will definitely take you up on the invitation when I get back down SD way.

Take care!

[I][B]090301 LEVEL-1 CERTIFICATION AT CFSD, DAY 2[/B][/I]

[I]Review of concepts and rudiments learned / discussed yesterday. A "drop-in" guest at the cert for the Nutrition section of the course; Robb Wolf! How awesome is that!

A fun WOD to end the morning -
[B]AMRAP in 10:00
10 X 24" box jumps
10 X 1 pood Kb swings
200m run (subbed 250m row - [/B]R/achilles still complaining[B])
Got 100m shy of 4 rounds.....BLEH![/B] (Lowest score of the class - - I was disappointed but the rows took longer so I guess I shouldn't be too upset).

Afternoon fun - - broke out into our groups to cover:
[B]Snatches
Kipping pull-ups and an intro into butterfly kips
Hip extensions, back extensions, and GHD situps
Rowing ([COLOR=Red]PR'd[/COLOR] my 500m by 7 seconds - - [COLOR=Red]1:40![/COLOR])
Muscle-ups [/B](Still need to work on this one a bit)

Finished up with CF Programming. I'm gonna have to watch myself with this one....I am crazy enough to try [B]anything [/B]once! Just shouldn't subject clients to it....:D

Summing it all up: I thought I was hooked on this stuff before the cert and didn't think it was possible to be more enthusiastic about it. Now I am [U]really[/U] stoked. There is so much for me to work on I almost don't know where to start and want to do it all.....time to prioritize.......

Thank you, Bob. Great to meet you also. I'll hit the floor running with this too. Plan to work out at the affiliate in nearby Sedona when I'm at my Dad's this week. Hope my behavior wasn't over the top - - I can get carried away when I'm stoked on something.....

Take care. See ya when you get up to/towards Yosemite. Stop by when the pass is open if you get up toward Bridgeport!

That's the same feeling I had after my cert. So much information to process, and I had a completely changed outlook on what crossfit really is. I'm glad to see you had a great time(was there any doubt). Robb Wolf as a guest lecturer. So jealous.

I agree on the mind decompression. I'm surprised they don't have certs that often in Australia with as many great CF athletes there are. Here's hoping for more certs. You'll have a blast at the Gym cert!

1:40 500m row!! :notworth: Did you get any coaching on your rowing technique?

Sounds like the cert was amazing! I hope you're able to walk! hehe...I know what happens to an old person that does too many squats...been there..done that!! :rofl:

The cert really was amazing! Only correction I needed on the rowing was that I let my knees break before passing my hands over them on the recovery. That was it! Blew me away!

Legs will recover -- maybe....ROFL!

Re: Steve's "I'm not aging quietly" log
 
great time with the row Stephen... 1:40!!!!

and all you did was a minor adjustment!!! awesome.... maximising your leg drive!

hmmm..... maybe its time to get a deep tissue massage (i think it's marketed as active release therapy over your way) for your quads.... it'll hurt, but yeah, awesome...

oh, don't bother with getting a WOD in with Coach Brigham (crossfit sedona)... go straight to getting olympic lift coaching! if i remember correctly, he came second or third in the masters class in the championships last year...

go strong!!!

Gosh Carter, thanks! I do LOVE rowing. I think with some work I could do well.

Nice to know about Coach Brigham. I'd get a lot out of an Oly session.

Legs feel better now- - did Barbara today....now I can't feel them at all...!:rofl:

Re: Steve's "I'm not aging quietly" log
 
[I][B]090303 TUESDAY
[/B]Worked out in a very small, nice, friendly globo in Cottonwood, AZ. This gym positively takes the cake for having more equipment crammed into a small space than I've ever seen. No place to do a "wild" CF workout.....

[B]Warm-up
Stationary Cycling; [/B]10:00 / L3 / 90 RPM / 120 watts, avg. / 3.5 mi / HR 100.
(Different bike than I've used before...)
[B]Shoulder pass throughs 10 X 2
Body Circles 10 X 2
Push ups 10 X 1
Sit ups 10 X 1
Lat pull downs (kneeling) 50# X 25
Pull ups 5 X 4. [/B]Checked out bar. Was part of cable crossover rack and too close to the wall. Did 5 OH grip, 5 UH grip, and [/I][I]5 X 2 kipped.
[B]OHS 10 X 2 w/ wood stick. [/B]These felt more solid than ever before. Had to fight for OH position on every rep - - shoulders are NOT flexible!

[B]WOD: "Barbara"
Five rounds, each for time. Rest precisely 3:00 between rounds.
20 pull ups
30 push ups
40 sit ups (unanchored)
50 squats
TIME: 5:20 / 5:41 / 6:44 / 6:31 / 6:23
As Rx'd, except for pull ups jumped on last round.

[/B]This was my first "Barbara" ever. I messed up with the stop watch on the 3rd round and so I added a minute to the time it showed. It was probably closer to 30 sec.

[B]Note: [/B]Had a couple of neat things happen:
[B]Pull ups: [/B]Managed to kip [COLOR=Red][B]10 in a row (PR for reps!)[/B][COLOR=Black]in the first round! As I got tired, there just wasn't enough room to kip with my poor form, hence the jumping pull-ups.
[B]Push ups: [/B]Don't know why, but these simply killed me. Had to break 'em up into small sets - got no more than 15 in a row today...
[B]Sit ups: [/B]No ab mat. All unbroken except for round 4 - - had to move 'cause the seam of my shorts dug into my lower spine - - OUCH!
[B]Squats:[/B] Was really please here - - for the first time I was able to do at least 20 reps unbroken at the beginning of each round! WOOT!

All in all, happy with this workout for a first time. Really want to try it where I have more room and am better rested.

As for my legs and the DOMS I still had from the cert. My legs don't hurt now.....I can't feel them...:rofl::rofl::rofl:

[B]I LOVE CROSSFIT![/B]

Hi Delita,

Thank you! The cert was a blast and taught me so much, it's hard to adequately describe. DLs felt wonderful - glad my grip didn't give out.
I'd never have thought of myself as being / becoming an animal. What a great complement! You made my day!

Hey, congrats on the Cert and that DL. That's a huge jump. You've clearly been getting way stronger doing things other than max DLs. Nice job on the 6x500m row a couple weeks back, too. Holding a pace like that for that long is positively brutal.

090305. THURSDAY

Worked out again at globo in Cottonwood, AZ.

Warm up: Treadmill. 5:00 at 4.0 MPH.
MOD. CFWU X 1rd
Shoulder pass thrus X 10
Body cir ea. Dir X 10
Trunk rotations ea dir X 10
Push ups X 10
Sit ups X 10
OHS X 10
Dips (jumping assist) X 10
Pull ups X 5
Db swings X 10
Lat pull downs 75# X 25

WOD: Helen.
Was going to do this one - Didn't realize how gassed I was from DLs yesterday until I tried the db swings. R/ Achilles was really hurting too when I ran...

Substitute workout:
Progressive 400m runs
1. 400m @ 5.5 MPH
2. 400m @ 6.0 MPH
3. 400m @ 6.5 MPH
4. 100m @ 7.0 MPH. Had to cut it short due to R/ Achilles. Took short rests at 4.0 MPH between runs. Too bad I had to stop. These felt really strong and I'm sure I could have gotten 8.0 MPH today...

GTG kipping pull ups. Tried to work on technique despite cramped space, which forced me to really concentrate.
4, 4, 3, 4, 2, 5, 5, 3 = 30.
Got the fives when I got a chance to explain the kipping PU to a retired strength coach from the local community college. She wanted to help me with my pull ups 'cause it looked like I was having trouble doing them. She'd never seen a kipping PU before. - had to really concentrate to show her and explain while I did them. Ripped 'em right out!

35# Db swings X 20M. Was going to do more. Totally smoked...went home.

BLEH!

Re: Steve's "I'm not aging quietly" log
 
Thanks for the kind words, Helen.

I've lost just under 25# since I started CF at the end of Sept. Was doing Weight Watchers too, so that has helped. I have no idea about my current body comp, but according to the charts in the Zone book, I should be at about 23% BF. The same charts put me near 28% in October. I need to find someone with calipers or get hydrostatically tested.
I never did take a "before" set of pix or measurements. I do notice a change tho - - middle-aged spread is going away and there may be some abs hiding under my waning "spare tire.". :rofl: I know one thing for sure; I feel and am a whole lot stronger than when I started!

As I've said before....I. LOVE. CROSSFIT!

Well do a little something, some press up BW squats, sit up, in aa wee circuit. Take a walk....Its active recovery!

On your question in Vanessa log about squats, id start with high bar presonally. Low Bar i feel, takes some one on one coaching!

[quote=Richard Macaulay;535831]Well do a little something, some press up BW squats, sit up, in aa wee circuit. Take a walk....Its active recovery!

On your question in Vanessa log about squats, id start with high bar presonally. Low Bar i feel, takes some one on one coaching!

Hey thanks, Ricky! Yup - - I'll probably do a little something tomorrow after I travel.

Appreciate your take on the squats. I did it wrong for many years - - always high bar and wrong stance. Since doing CF and noting Coach Rip's reasoning, I can see how eventually the low bar position is so strong and stable. Problem is.....I am NOT! Cert really helped my form so I'm anxious to load up the old bar - - but I need to put the old ego on the shelf and just work on form....
