Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

5 Rounds for time: RX'd 1/2 BW (180)

11 Thrusters 92#
7 Snatches 92#


Little higher than Rx'd due to the weight of the bar...just used 2 25# bumpers

315 is my PR. Felt myself going down way too slow...may have had something to do with the thrusters yesterday.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Okay...was BS'ing with a friend earlier in the week and he started talking about the dreaded '300 Workout' and in typical irresponsible fashion I blurted out that I could probably knock that out in less than 20 mins...anywho. We bet 50 bucks.

Today was a test run of sorts. Not sure what 1 rep of a floor wiper is but I went from feet on floor to bumper 1 then over to bumper 2 and back to floor. counted that as 1 rep. Was that actually 2 reps?? Chime in if you can answer that.

Here's how it looked.

25 pullups
50 Deadlift 135#
50 Pushups
50 Box Jumps 24 in
50 Floor wipers 135#
50 Clean and Press 35# DB. (I think it would be easier with a KB) Dont' have a 1 pood for some reason
25 Pullups

Time - 21:26

the first set of Pullups took 35 secs. The last set took 2.5 mins. If I can shave some time off of the BJ's and FW's I can easily get in under 20.

P.S. I know i'm a dork for doing this...

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

it's okay to be a dork, if you know it and admit it. For the record, I've never done "The 300" workout, but I am sure I will some day.

Nice job on that Thruster/Snatch WOD -- that looks awful.

Re. the back squat work, David Schneider has tipped me off on trying to go up in higher increments when you are at/near your 1RM, that way you do not fatigue yourself so quickly. So in your case, I guess you'd do your normal warm ups as usual then something like:

275 x 1
295 x 1
320 x 1 (if the goal is to see if you can set a new PR)

instead of having the intervening single rep lifts of 285 and 305.

Just a thought. I haven't had the opportunity to do it yet b/c this week we didn't do any heavy singles, but I'm going to give it a shot next time.

A trainer at my gym who is super fit did the 300 today. He bagged the floor wipers though. Not sure what his time was. Your counting on the floor wipers was spot on. Excellent job JD!! I've wanted to try this one but 50 DLs would put me in the ER.

Guess I can't do Isabel yet...
O-lifting is difficult and humbling. Does anybody start crossfit and say..."MAN!! I just can't get these darn pushups down!! No problem with the C & J or Snatches!! I need a pushup coach!!"

Owell...I think that my '09 goals will definitely include o-lifting...

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Today was a big day. Ever since I beat Vinny's time in 'Fran' i've been looking forward to the next time...and beating him again!!!

Today we did Fran. Vinny's wife was there...there was a pretty good group and we were all fired up and ready to go.

Vinny's best time prior to today was 5:38...Mine was 5:03. I though there was no way in hell he was going to bet me. We both PR'd but get this...his time was[B] 4:21[/B]GOOD LORD!! What a monster!!! My time - 4:49. PR by 14 seconds so I guess I can't be too upset. This is why we love CrossFit. The minute you think you got it all figured out somebody comes along and kicks you in the pills.

Great job Vinny!! I'm gunning for you!!
