Hi Steve,
Hope you are feeling better.

I saw that you had posted something in the Dead Hang Pull Up Society about having really tight shoulders. What are you doing to work on them? Aside from a few basic stretches (across the body, behind the back),I wasnt sure if there are any new dynamic stretches, anythnig else that's not as obvious.

I could use all of the tips I can get. Mine deltoids are like bricks right now ad it hurts to practice my kipping swings. :o


Thanks!

[quote=Danny McCabe;485611]Hey Steve,

Hope you're feeling better and back at the gym. I empathize as it seems I was sick off and on most of the first 3 weeks of December. Good Health to you![/quote]

Danny,

Thank you for your concern! The cold is still hanging on with a vengeance, but I felt better today, so did a short WO. Slowly getting back into it.....

Hi Alicia,

I'm probably not the best person to ask. I was told one of the best things I could do was "shoulder pass throughs" using a piece of PVC pipe. Another good one is the shoulder / trunk rotation, again using a PVC pipe. I also do arm circles. Are you doing your kipping practice swings without support (simply hanging)? If so, perhaps you could stand on a BJ or aerobic step and do shoulder swings supporting most of your body weight with your legs.

Last but not least, if you are fairly strong, you can substitute a light weight bar (1" barbell bar - - 15# or 25#), or if you feel confident, a 30# oly bar and hold it overhead at approx. shoulder width with palms facing forward (OH grip). Gently allow the weight of the bar to move your arms/shoulders rearward a few inches until you feel a stretch. You don't want to lower the bar to your back, just stretch your shoulders.

I've looked for some info on shoulder stretches, but all I've been able to find thus far is fairly elementary and what you probably already know. I'll see what I can dig up in the mean time and post back.

Take care and good luck!

[B][U]Sunday, January 4, 2009[/U]:[/B]

[I]Still really sick . . . sat around and vegged out.

[/I][U][B]Monday, January 5, 2009[/B][/U][B]:

[/B][I]Still feeling like doo-doo, but couldn't stand it any longer and went to the globo. Did a light, "sucky" work-out.

[B]Warm-up:
Stationary Cycling - [/B]10:00 / L3 / 100 RPM / 2.6 miles / HR @ 102
[B]Jump rope - singles: [/B]50. (Tried for some DUs, but it wasn't happening).

[B]WOD:
Hang Power-Cleans; 1,1,1,1,1,1,1. Post Loads.

[/B]WU with [B]45# bar X 10. Then 45# bar X 5.
95# X F. 5 attempts total; all Failed.
Dropped to 65#, did 5 X 7 (35 total reps) for form. [/B]Hit and miss - - Lifts with poor form were repeated (approx. 50% of them......BLEH!!).

Analysis: Slow legs (not quick enough thrust upwards on initial lift), slow arms (not bringing them up fast enough), and not dipping down enough (or quickly enough) to receive the bar. Tons of work necessary here....

[B]New Years Challenge:

Buy-in for 1/05/2009: 30 burp-ups.

Also did 5 DHPUs X 2 and 5 kipping PUs X 4. [/B]Tried UH grip once on the kipping and noted much more stability in my hip movement and that my chin/torso was much closer to the bar.

[B]Nutrtion still a bit off - - just trying to get over this cold........[/B]
[/I]

[B]Modified CFWU X 2
[/B]Shoulder pass throughs, trunk rotations, shoulder/trunk rotations w/PVC, lat pull downs (75# X 10), push ups. Added 5 burpees and 5 kipping pull-ups to second set.

Kipping wide grip: OH = F, F, 2*, 2, 3 / UH = 2, 3, 2, 4, 3
[B]Total = 61
[/B](* = shoulders and lats fried - - had to use a step to raise my starting height).

[I][B]8 rounds + 4 thrusters @ [COLOR=Red]75#[/COLOR] [COLOR=Red](PR) [/COLOR]= 39 thrusters[/B][/I].

[I][U]This was one of the most difficult WOs I've ever done.[/U] Kipping degraded toward end of each set - - believe I'm not opening my hips forcefully enough to carry the kip. On thrusters, my wind endurance seemed to hold out, but my shoulders just quit - - couldn't get the weight extended out over my head. BLEH!! On the good side - - I know what I have to work on; and I feel I really accomplished something today![/I]

I sure have thought about training. I was certified [I][B]y e a r s [/B][/I]ago through the Cooper Institute (Dallas Aerobics) when my LE Department was working with an organized fitness program. I was what we called an "Area Fitness Coordinator" where I basically helped oversee our annual testing protocols and helped our employees with "fitness prescriptions." The program was sun-setted due to employee injuries. I may train again after I attend a Level I Cert.

10 Rounds for Time
3 weighted pull-ups @ 45#, drop dumbbell, the perform...
5 strict pull-ups....then perform
7 kipping pull-ups
Dropping from the bar at any time ends the round.

What I did: "The MacGuiver WOD" (Held together with bubble gum and duct tape) [/B]Scaled to 15# for weighted pull-ups. 1). Round 1 completed 3 weighted, 5 strict, 7 kipping pull-ups.
2). Rounds 2 - 4 completed in broken sets (dropped off bar), 2 weighted, 2 or 3 strict, the rest kipping in sets of 4 or 5.
3). Rounds 5 on, had to dump the weight. Kipped all pull-ups.
4). Rounds 9 and 10 degraded to sets of 2 - 4 kipped pull-ups.
[/I][I][B]Total = 150 pull-ups. Not timed, but took approximately 1:07.[/B][/I]
[I]Used whatever means possible to obtain 15 reps for each round. Rested 2 - 4 minutes between rounds.[/I]

The job/assignment was really cool.....but my Department ended up doing away with the program. We ended up with too many "job-incurred" injuries. It's too bad also, because we had many more fit (or at least, fitter) officers.

Looking forward to the cert.....

Impressive work, Steve, especially all those pullups and the death by thrusters. (That sounds miserable.) Cool that your thinking of getting back into training folks. Doing it with CF as a methodology will be super rewarding. Maybe it's my CF elitism, but I have this image of guys looking like that old avatar of your jumping around and find it comical. [SIZE="1"][COLOR="Silver"](I hope I'm not alone in this. :o)[/COLOR][/SIZE]

That's a good list, Steve. I've also found Adrian Bozman's OHS drill to be excellent for improving shoulder flexibility and stability (especially in conjunction with the kipping). As an added bonus, it will give you practice squatting for the cert. :p The drill is pretty simple. Do a set (5-10) of standard, snatch-grip OHS and hold at the bottom for 5-10 seconds on the last rep. Move your hands and feet in ~six inches and repeat. Do about four positions, moving through a pressing stance/grip and finishing up with hands and feet together. Keep your toes turned out and make sure your knees track over them, so there's room to get your hips down. At first, the narrower positions will be comical, but over time, you'll develop a better ROM in both hips and shoulders, while keeping your back stable. I still can't get to parallel with hands and feet together, but I was close when I was doing this on a daily basis. Give it a shot.

Strong work on Friday especially those pull ups after Thursday's punishment. Burpee time was great too.
I have shoulder flexibility problems as well but the OHS work has helped quite a bit.

No, Patrick. It is not your CF elitism.......it's the truth. I [I][B]am[/B][/I] jumping around and find it comical......Gosh, what'll I look like doing that when I'm 70......YIKES :yikes:.

Thank you for your suggestions and positive reinforcement to my pursuits. I just simply need to work hard, but work safely at the same time. The dislocates and pass throughs are really helping. I noticed during my CFWU the other day that my OHS warm-ups (with the Kindo stick) were almost directly overhead.....much better than previously.

[B]
Sub: 5K Row.
Time = 22:04 [/B]Thought I could do better, but this cold made it hard to get deep breaths. Avg pace 2:14 / 500m. Tried a sprint - last 500m under 2:00, got only 250m at approx. 1:56 pace before had to slow down. Tried again, last 100m @ 1:54 pace.

[B]Weighted Pull-ups:

[B]Unassisted Pull-ups:
[/B]DHPU: 3 OH grip, 1 OH grip, 3 UH grip = 7 DHPU.
Kipped Pull-ups: 3 OH, [COLOR=Red][B]8 UH*[/B], [COLOR=Black]2 OH, 4 UH, [B][COLOR=Red]9 UH*[/COLOR][/B][COLOR=Red][COLOR=Black], 4 UH, 5 UH, 1 OH, 7 UH = 43 kipped PU.

WooHoo, Steve! Nice job on your Pull-ups! Do you realize how far you've come on these? Go back in your log and read your first few posts on these...
For example on 9/24:"[B]Recon Ron pull-ups[/B]: 2,2,2,1,1. [B][I]Almost[/I][/B] got 2 DHPUs! (1 7/8?)."
Check you out! Love seeing your progress.

Thanks, E! I like the line from the Byrds' old song (dating myself here), "My Back Pages"; [I]"......I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now." :D. [/I]Besides, I like driving my daughter crazy.....she's 33 and has been that age since she was about 5.......

Just stopping by your log to say hi. I don't know what took me so long. I look forward to keeping up with your work - you are so encouraging on my log!

Hi Jenna,

Thanks for stopping by! I'm honored that you are doing so - - especially with how busy you are. It is so awesome to watch peoples' progress and even more so, like you, those who are willing to share their experience with others, whether through affiliation, training, or just plain encouragement.

Take care! Gonna hit the rack myself......singing worship at church tomorrow......
