[QUOTE=Terry Dickman;794185]
[B]Scott,[/B] I feel the same on presses, I think thats a hard lift to improve in. One of the trainers in our gym suggested to[B] do progressions on presses for a few weeks to improve it[/B]. So he did like 5 sets of 3, of a manageable weight and every week upped the weight 5 lbs, until he could no longer progress, then went back to max effort attempts.... he said it really helped.

[I][B]HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JIM!
[/B][/I]Yea for D-Land. Wife, daughter, and I love going there. Relatives live in So. Cal, so we tend to "hit the Park" at least once a year. Our PR so far is 9 times on Pirates of the Caribbean in one day!
[B]Terry, [/B]Hope the shoulder is doing OK. Great info on the linear progressions for the presses. I need work there, so thanks for sharing that with Scott. Interesting also seeing the 5, 5, 5, 3, 3, 3 work. Hadn't thought about combining the two (5s or 3s).

[B]John J, [/B]Quite a "Functional Workout" if you ask me. Some of that must have been pretty tedious, given the time line!

[B]Deb, [/B]that "Shedkicker" WOD needs to be renamed to "Buttkicker!" Great job on the other one!

[B]Pat, [/B]the climbing wall must have been fun. I've never been up one.....

uh, haven't been to d-land in 25 years. isn't Pirates a kid's ride, Steve? :rofl: I expected you to tell us you rode the biggest, baddest rollercoaster 9 times. But, Pirates??!!

Of course, I'm kidding! My favorite is It's a Small World. It makes me cry just thinking about it. And yea, I get teased a lot about that! :D

400 meter run
50 deadlifts - 95# (65#)
800 meter run
50 knees to elbows
[B]14:10 [/B]Situps & deads seemed like a half minute each! I should pbly have scaled the deads up to 75. Wouldve been better time if I was better at running!! 200 & 400 were ok; the 800 I stopped twice on the uphill. Think its mental. Wasn't happy w/my k2es - I realized these hurt my shoulder!! (toes to bar, OTOH do not - go figure.) Tired today - some animal pulling my grill apart on the deck woke me at 3 last nite.

... a couple hours later

[B]Strength: Hang Clean[/B]
3x8x65% of 1RM - I used 80#...

Nancy,

I like just about all of the rides. Favorite is probably Big Thunder Railway, but Pirates is a close 2nd. It's Cheryll's favorite and doesn't mess her up too badly if she's having a fibromyalgia flare-up when we're down there.

And that's OK.....It's a Small World is cool too!

[B]Deb, [/B]

I think today was ""K2Es suck day".....had trouble with my grip and my abs felt like they didn't belong to me....didn't hurt, just wouldn't work.....

[B]William, [/B]

Thanks for the nice comment r.e., my back squat. My all time best is 315#, but that number has been so elusive since over a year ago. I'm thinking some density work is probably the ticket. BTW, your WOD of today had an awful lot to accomplish in 10 minutes. Awesome job....don't think I'd have made it....quite.....

Happy Birthday, Claw.

Steve,

It's not tedious for me, except I wished I had more time down there that day. It's what I live for these days. Only negatives are the bugs and poison ivy. Fortunately, I'm not terribly allergic to it anyway.

It is only an hour and 15 minutes away and a million miles from people and cell phones or anything. Quiet. Peaceful. Lots of simple honest (and physically challenging!) work to do.

John,

Sounds wonderful! I don't get a chance to do things like that much anymore - - our lot is only 1/4 acre, trees, and not a lot to take care of (no lawn - - wife and I have black thumbs anyway...:D ). When we lived up north, we had a wood stove, so I'd always be going and cutting wood, then splitting and stacking it. Lots of yard work too (berry vines, etc.). I definitely miss the physical work, but not the hassle of getting it done.....
