Tuesday September 25, 2012

Warmup included tuck jumps, overhead squats, and something else.

Did 15 minutes of snatch practice, both normal and split.
Had some good results. Really focussing on technique.

Alternated deadlifts and box jumps.
Got a 36" box jump!

Then did a metcon with running, burpees over the bar, and toes to bar. Did the toes to bar on the real bar for the first time, instead of starting from the ground and jumping. This explains why I can barely breath now and coughing feels like broken ribs but where your stomach muscles are supposed to be....

[QUOTE=Deb Weber;1097457]nice work cliff AND alden; I guess the shoulder's good! :highfive:[/QUOTE]

Thanks, Deb. Yes, I'm very happy with the shoulder progress. Not sure it will ever be back to where it was before the injury (as far as being aware that it is "different") but performance-wise, it is coming along. I'm within 10-15 pounds of my previous best shoulder press and 15 pounds over my previous best bench press. :pepper:

9/30
Warmup: Row 700m; Abmat sit-ups; back extensions; upper body mobility
Lift: Deadlift 45, 105, 130, 160 X5 (deload week)
Skills practice: Hang squat snatch PVC, 20, 30, 45, 55#X5

Really happy with my progress in shoulder mobility and strength. Although my weights are low, I can finally do a proper OH squat and snatch. I just try to add 5-10 pounds each time I practice them; starting to think it is time to buy some bumper plates. :)

10/3 WOD
Narrow Grip Bench Press
8-8-8-8-8
95-105-115-120-120
120 was my max, really pushing last rep.

Teams of 2:
5 Rounds For Reps
1 Min Row for Calories
1 Min Air Squats
(Alt Row/Squats for 10 Minutes Total)
555 (I think; if not 555, then 505)

Worked with Shane Wallace, we crushed this one. We each knocked out at least 40 squats per minute for the 10 minutes, bringing us over 400. The rows were much more expensive points so I did not try to crush these except for last minute.

First WOD in a long time, super busy at work getting ready for vacation.

Nice work Kevin!

[B]Sunday October 7, 2012
[/B]Tried to shake off some of the rust at the shed.
Some easy TGUs, easy KBS, easy air squats, and lots of groaning.
It was interesting and disgusting that I hurt worse from five days of inactivity and travel than I would have if I'd been CrossFitting. Apparently Neil Young is correct, that it's better to burn out, than it is to rust....

Welcome Kevin.

Well,

Did the Mid-Atlantic Hopper Challenge this past weekend. What a great experience! Crossfit BWI did a great job putting on a first rate event.

For the Masters Division (which was 45+) we ended up doing 5 WOD's in less than 30 Hours.

Top 5 made the finals and to my great suprise I made it! When the dust cleared I came in 5th! I amazed myself with some of the things I was able to do even though my mind said I couldn't.

The comeraderie was awesome and I competed with an outstanding group of guys, some of them made it to the Crossfit Games in California this summer.

I will try to recap the WODs.

[B]Day 2 Wod 4[/B]

Good work everyone!

Kevin - Welcome

Cliff - Sorry to hear about the rotator cuff

Was on business travel last week so my workouts included things like:
Concourse Sprint (trying to make a tight connection (f)) :(
Adapting to using hotel gym and not many dumbbells
Adjusting around a severely tweaked back; probably from all the snatches and OH squats I've been practicing. :icon_spee

The good news is I got on the inversion table when I got home Sunday night. While hanging there and twisting back and forth, trying to loosen up the back, something in lower back popped and the pain went away. The back is a little stiff but I can't seem to reproduce the pain that was there while moving through my normal ROM. I'll be back in the gym tomorrow. :thanx:

Cliff - Yes, that Yoder smoker is a great piece of gear. Thinking of buying one. Jan doesn't eat read meat so she wouldn't share in the enjoyment and I'm not sure I can consume enough to justify the price.

Bill H - yes, the shoulder is feeling pretty good but I definitely "feel it" when doing pull-ups. Not sure it will ever feel normal. Also wish I had room for dip bars in my home gym; I can do A LOT more regular dips than ring dips and they don't stress the shoulder as much.

10/11
Warmup: Row; upper body mob; Abmat sit-ups; weighted back extensions; deadlifts 45, 110, 135X5/ 165X3
Lift: Deadlift 180, 205X5/ 230X8
Assist: 65# good mornings X3X10; T2B X3X10
Skills: PVC OH squats; shoulder mobility
