[QUOTE]sports hynotist at box with 20 other members. i am not a "wu wu" kind of person but some of the things this lady was saying made total sense and reinforced a bunch of stuff i already was doing or believed.
[/QUOTE]
what was the stuff??

Does anyone calculate/read their biorhythms? My friend keeps telling me, figure out my biorhythm and work with them. ???
I think most of my problems around now is just stress.

I can understand the Biorhythm jazz... not sure about the hypnotism stuff.

At the base "Globo",
[B]WU:[/B]
800m run [I]Saw a CrossFitter doing today's CFWP WOD![/I]
SU/DU Practice
19 24"Box Jumps

[B]WOD:[/B]
"The Chief"

Max rounds in 3 minutes of:
135 pound Power cleans, 3 reps
6 Push-ups
9 Squats

Rest 1 minute. Repeat for a total of 5 cycles

2 rounds + 3 Cleans + 6 Push-ups
2 Rounds + 3 Cleans
2 Rounds + 2 Cleans
2 Rounds + 3 Cleans
1 Round + 3 Cleans + 5 Push-ups

9 Rounds and Change

[I]Brutal!! Power Cleans were the worst! Missed a bunch because I was afraid dropping the iron weights would **** off the "Globo" Management! :yikes: (We had an Instructor suspended because too many people were "dropping" the weights in their class. Don't know the details, but it's BS like that that makes me crazy! Hopefully, it can be resolved!

BTW, Great job Guys![/I]

deb most of the stuff was the positive mental attitude type things, the fight or flight response you know the stuff that we old timers learned as we matured and the 20 and 30 somethings don't have yet :)

Pat - +1 on the globo. I hate having to use them when on travel but given the sad state of most hotel gyms, I have to visit the globo if I want anything bigger than a 20# dumbbell. If there is a military base nearby, I use their weight room if they allow retirees use the facility.

6/4

Warmup: Shoulder and t-spine mobility; row 900m

Wendler Bench press 75, 85 X 5/ 95 X 30
Assist Pushups X3X10/ 52# DB rows X3X15

WOD AMRAP 12 minutes
65# hang power cleans X 10
45# KB swings X 15
Abmat sit-ups X 20
4 rounds + 2 cleans

Just over 1/2 Cent (51). Been in CF ~ 1yr. Some modifications due to PKR right knee (Apr 2011).

Lunges
Atomic crunchs

Henry - Welcome!!

The regs want safety & I understand with Iron weights dropping is bad. However, there is little or no standards as to what "dropping a weight is". I try to hang on the weights to below knee level & then let go, trying to prevent a bounce that might hurt someone else.

Our box has become "CrossFit in a Globo" but I'm hopeful that will change.

Heck, even doing a bodyweight CrossFit WOD at a Globo inevitably causes someone to come up to me & ask, "WHAT are you doing?!?!"

[B]Functional WOD:[/B]
"OutDoor Fran"
21-15-9
50# sandbag Thrusters
Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)

6:53

[I]Must've dropped the sandbag 5 times during the middle round! The Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) were surpizingly fast after the 1st round. Made up time then! Wasn't the last one done! Now if I could do that time with reagular Fran...:D
[/I]
[B]WU:[/B]
300m row
2 rounds:
15 AbMat Sit-Ups
15 Hand release Push-ups

[B]WOD:[/B]
10 min to find Max Dead Lift

315#

then
400m run
20 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
2 min rest
400m run
15 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
1 min rest
400m run
10 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)

12:34

[I]My head wasn't in it for the DLs. Tried 345 & 335, but failed. The guys said I was REALLY close the 1st attempt at 345. Bummer![/I]

[I]Guess I didn't do enough Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) yesterday!! Felt bad after the 1st round, but better the next two![/I]

Henry welcome aboard the good ship Crossfit.

William , in competition there is a rule violation for dropping the barbell on a dead lift. This just means that your hands must remain on the bar all the way down! Thud!

Crossfit total:

BS 385
Press 185
Dead lift 485
Total 1055

My form was awful. Just cannot do the heavy weight without routine practice for form. I haven't done a Wendler cycle in 9 months. Met-cons are better and I really enjoy working out with my group.
