"Fight Gone Bad!"

Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20" box (Reps)
Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
Row (Calories)
warm up 1 round
10 dead hang pullups
10 situps 40 lbs
10 ring dips
10 ghd situps
10 squats
10 pushups

total 266 with row (sdhp with 45lbs bar)

last time
297 with row if each pull equals 1 calorie.

Slower then last time, but that is ok considering.

Re: Nik
 
Good job nik! How did the back/rib feel during the workout? Was it hurting or uncomfortable? You know I was just about to ask how to calculate the calories if we use the sdhp as a sub to rowing.

Re: Nik
 
Great work Nik, looking after an injury and going for reps and still getting close to a PR. I found doing all those sumos much harder than doing one lot and rowing at the end.

My ribbs didn't really hurt on any one movement, just sore enought to let me know about it.

Really? I would like to do this with a rower to get the perscribed affect one time. I just don't really think about it. I have to sub so I just go. But they get tireing real fast!!

Re: Nik
 
3:00 break
6 muscle ups. The first 5 were to try to get them as quickly as posible with little break. The last one was supose to be from a hang pullup to a false grip and then MU, but I couldn't and haven't been able to get the false grip right.

10 ghd situps

rolling on my back.

Re: Nik
 
That's still a good number on FGB. I used to sub sdhp w/45lb bar in place of rows, but this time I discovered the schwinn aire dynne & subbed that for rows. I figured out how to set it for calories. It kills, but I like it better then sdhp.

Oh nice, that (or anything ) would be better then more sumos when you just did sumos.

Nasty one that Nik, It killed my hand landing in the push up position for the burpees. Its got to be strength tomorrow and as my guesses are usually quite close I am going to say 'Push Jerk 3-3-3-3-3 :D

Re: Nik
 
You managed to get up your slippery rope 9 times then Nik, did it get dicey towards the end as sometimes you can go so far up a rope and leave no energy or grip power to get back down. We are definately going to feel it in the stomach in the morning.

Oh man! You beat me by 6 seconds! Great job! I thought that WOD was a killer too. Burpees & 400 m run smoked me!

If I don't have a rope, what do you guys recommend for a substitute?

Yea, there waas a few times it got worrysome at the top. The tip of my ring finget is numb. I'm a little bummed, I have done this one faster. I felt good today, it felt good, I guess I was just slow.

HAHAHA 6 seconds is enough!! Good job on it. Sub like Scott, towl pullups, that is the closest you will get. It is a leathel workout, but affective.

Thanks, i have done the pullup WOD faster, I was let down on that one. But I'm ready for the SP max.

Re: Nik
 
Rest day. Glad for it. I will be changing breaks on my 240 with my youngest son this morning.

On another note. My metcon has been really lacking. I have been kind of slacking, my times are getting slower. I have realized I am breaking longer then I use to. I use to only give myself the''3.2.1.go'' rest. But now it is longer. I don't know how it slipped to longer breaks, it wasnt a choise. It just snuck up on me. Next metcon I will really try for better.
I feel like I'm pushing hard, it is not like I'm not trying or taking it easy. I'm just not pushing as hard as I was. This will change!!

Scott Jenkins 08-07-2009 06:07 AM

Re: Nik
 
Thats why you should get yourself in a class workout, you only have to take a 3-2-1 break and someone will shout 'Get back to the bar'!!! You remember when we said about how taking some water or chalking your hands was 'Montys' way of making you take a not needed or longer break.

Death to Monty!!! :evilsmile

Ernie Guevara 08-07-2009 06:12 AM

Re: Nik
 
I agree with the monty comment! I remember when i use to let him do that to me. He would say "come on just take a water break and you'll feel better when you come back". And i would listen and lose extra time on metcons. Now i hear him talking but give him the finger and stay right infront of the bar for a couple of deep breaths and get back on. Monty's a jerk!:ranting2:

Nick Harris 08-07-2009 07:38 AM

Re: Nik
 
Awesome comments Scott & Ernie! I am right there with Nik and others when that inner voice tells me to stop for a second to catch my breathe and it will be much better. :ranting2:

Thanks all. Scott Ernie you are right, Monty has snuck back up on me, I don't know how, but he did. This I promice will stop.

Nick,I will fight him back off.

Rachel I am with you, it is mostly breathlessness that gets me. I will regain it back.

Loving the CFFB, I just wanted to focus more on strength and build a good base, but I don't want to sacrifice too much metcon with my fire service physical tests coming up.

Nice job on the L-pullup workout, i'm currently gym hopping to try and find a crossfit friendly one for squatting, the one i'm in at the moment with the worlds worst pullup station. It has no middle but 2 curved rubber handles at the sides making it impossible to do chins!

Great work on the deadlifts Nik, glad you took my advice and got a PR!! Hope tomorrows WOD is easy on the lower back, core and hamstrings as mine are killing.

Thanks, thanks for the advice too. I think the best advice I got so far is'' When you feel like you can't do one more, do one more.''

Or was it you who said, on the air squats, ''It's only pain, you can do one more'' Which actually worked for me.

Can't wait for tomarrow.

Re: Nik
 
I see that we're almost neck and neck on those deadlifts, you've got me by 5lbs. though. I know that crossfit encourages the hook grip, but what's the advantage of it, I find it to be very uncomfortable.

Ah congrats, I will check your log in a bit.

Hook grip helps your grip all across everywhere else. Grip strenth. You are less likely or able to bend your arms and threated your bicepts with both hands in the over hand grip. Which is really unlikely. I would have used the mix grip if I would have failed to get a set from grip.
Scott Ernie, chime in if I am wrong or forgot anything.
:run:

Ernie Guevara 08-08-2009 01:55 PM

Re: Nik
 
I know the hook grip is better but not sure what the advantages are since I have not mastered it myself. I too find it uncomfortable but probably because I'm not use to it. I don't know if I'm doing it wrong or not but my thumbs hurt a lot when I use it. Sometimes I honk my hands are too small for he hook grip because I can barely get 2 fingersiver my thumbs while doing it. I know it helps ur grip from slipping especially in the cleans and snatches. I think all the Olympic lifting coaches recommend it so it's gotta be better than regular grip. Well those were my 2 cents, hope that helped somehow.

Jesse Emers 08-08-2009 02:00 PM

Re: Nik
 
Nice work on the deadlifts dude! You know that you can use [I]hook mixed[/I] grip:eek:, try it out sometime.

Scott Jenkins 08-08-2009 02:19 PM

Re: Nik
 
The hook grip locks your grip in place so rather than losing the bar during the pull all the pressure goes onto your thumbs which in turn takes some getting use to. I generally grip normal overhand until the weight tests my grip and then change to hook grip. It does hurt at first and can be uncomfortable but we are crossfitting not applying make up. :D
