Hey [B]John B[/B], eating your Wheaties? Geez - your warmup is my workout! :rofl:

[B]07.22.2010-Thursday REST DAY[/B]
AM: 30 Burpees 15# vest


[B]07.23.2010-Friday[/B]
AM: 30 Burpees, 15# Vest

PM: Running late at work, so did this at home.
Warmup - Run 400, step n stretch, step n pull, ham kick, floor sweepers, OHS, lunge & twist, shoulder mobility & stretch...

[B]Strength: Backsquat[/B]
1x125
1x135
1x145
1x150
1x155
1x160
We're supposed to retest 1RM - Finally got up to 160, but I wasnt that happy with the depth, just breaking parallel. Im too timid alone - I do better with my coach or at least a spotter there, I bet I could've gotten more. Last 1RM was 150# 3 wks ago (home alone), and I felt I could do more then too. For some reason Im afraid my lower back will round when I go lower.
Then, 2x5x135#, 3x5x125# (working on depth).

[B]WOD:[/B]
"Burping Nicole"
Complete the following in 20:00:
5 rounds of: 400 meter run, 20 pull-ups
As many burpees as possible until the clock reaches 20:00

I dont have a pullup bar, so subbed 65# barbell rows. I'dve subbed ringrows at the gym anyway, saving my shoulder. Got 21 burpees.
Looked like I got out of a pool when I was done - 90° and 100% humidity here today... strangely, the squatting seemed to make running, if not faster, at least not so hard today.

Couldn't imaging going the complex of exercises in the box so I took the "path of lesser" confusion. FRAN.

21-15-9 reps of
95# thrusters
Pull ups.

Last time I scaled this to 65# and finished in 6:39.

This time I used 35# DB's and finished in 6:15. The DB's were used to compensate for shoulder inflexibility. Still need work on getting my butt down. I did set a ball as a target and was inconsistent about hitting it.

Stephan thanks for the feedback. If I ever decide to go into therapy again, I'll call for your rates.

Crossfit class at my gym.

7 X 7 for time
Pull ups, HSPU's, burpees. Finished in 18:34.

Talking to the class leader about offering a "Paleo Challenge" at the gym. I may do this for myself if I cannot get a larger group involved. There are just a few sticking point to my eating that have been set backs. Having a group would make the challenges easier.

[B]07.24.2010-Saturday[/B]
AM: 30 Burpees 15# Vest

PM: at home: Warmup - run 400, step & stretch, step & pull, ham kick, lunge & twist, pushups, OHS, squats, shoulder mobility & stretch

[B]WOD[/B]
7 Rounds:
3 Cleans 95#
4 HSPU
[B]8:20[/B] Shouldve gone heavier on the cleans they were too easy; HSPU on the 25# plate plus towel. I measured my feet on the wall and Im only going 6-7" at my hand width.... still thinking on that. Not all my reps got that ROM either. Felt fine while I was doing this but my shoulder is def. bothering me again, not as bad as last time but it's there.

Run 400 cooldown
(its still 100° 100% humidity here)

Deb I know how you feel on the back squat, I rounded my back once squating heavy (heavy for me anyway) and had to yell for help, never again I will always have a spotter on heavy back squats

WU

10 pullup
20 GHD situps

Team WOD 4 man teams myself a new guy Dave, and two lovely young ladies
100 Thrusters @ 95#

200 Double Unders

25 in the last round

couple times I felt like my next breath could not be deep enough, and even a whale sized breath would not be enough strange feeling that is!
