Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
training has been slim lately. My daughter got sick and was in the hospital all weekend with potential meningitis. it ended up being just a virus but scary nonetheless.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
Been really a slackin'!

Did my first competition in a while...

Something with snatches, wall balls, clean and jerks, deadlifts, rowing, TTB, pull-ups and double unders. It was a partner WOD thing so, not really anything to document.

Still trying to keep up with my pull-up/Push-up challenge. On day 86 with Push-ups and day 37 with pull-ups. I also run a mile when I get a chance.

Last few WOD's I can recall

Back Squat

For Time

Day 100 of push-up challenge

Did tabata with a goal of 100, got 111.


Amazing how you get better at something while working on it.

Been doing a workout here and there but nothing crazy - have the Tough Mudder on Saturday, after that I'm starting the Gymnastics Bodies program.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
So - update. Just finished 3 weeks of my new gymnastic bodies program. It was a bumpy start not really knowing what I was doing or where to progress etc but after 3 weeks it's starting to come together. I'm working hard on the stretching portions and am starting to feel better.

I'm clearly weak in the areas I've neglected and strong in the areas I haven't.

I'm doing this for a few reasons...

#1. I'm way too inflexible. It's embarassing actually. I've neglected it for far too long and feel it needs some dedicated time.

#2. i feel it's probably a good way to learn progressions for new people as well as an aging population of recent additions to the gym.

This isn't a knock against any CF gymnastic programming but I wanted a program to follow - people are always doing different barbell programs - it's similar to that. Just a gymnastic version.

I'm in the initial stages of the program and will update periodically.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
Just an update here. Still following along on the gymnastics thing. It's going well, making progress etc.

Getting through the holidays was rough - too much eating/drinking etc but feeling good now after dialing it in on Tuesday :-) (Monday was an observed holiday)

Here's what i've noticed so far.

I was terribly inflexible. Super tight. I won't blame CrossFit because that's dumb. CrossFit requires capacity in flexibility as well as strength. But strength and metcon was what I pretty much focused on for years. At the expense of basic gymnastics and flexibility.

Holding a proper hollow position for even a few seconds was super hard in the beginning. Being able to do a smooth 'rock and roll' was almost impossible. Could barely touch my toes with locked knees. My lumbar spine was essentially 'locked' in the curved position.

I think this put me in a position to get injured...and injured quite often. I'm about 3 full months in and will post back in another 3. The only 'cardio' or conditioning I've been doing has essentially been warmups. One mile run once a week, 2K Row, 10 Min Bike or 300 double unders.

I'll be able to keep running through the winter though because I just got a Trueform!

That's about it.
