A tip that may be useful for increasing your double-unders. I took the handles off one of these [url]http://www.buyjumpropes.net/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=013BoxersTrainingJumpRope&CartID[/url] (WFS) and drilled the holes slightly larger. I replaced the plastic cord with a vinyl coated clothes line cable. Went from 7 to 15 double unders first try.

I signed on to post my wod results and decided you must have been reading my mind. I got so stinking frustrated this morning. I managed 18 in the first round and then had to switch to 4 x singles for the rest of the WOD. I still have whelps on my arm and did them at 5:30 this morning. Boo!

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;904539]You guys (and Michelle) are killing me!! Everybody is SO strong & FAST. Oh, that row, I think I'd die!


Struggle with these as well Im no expert but I gotta believe the light weights CF uses in wods you're probably pulling high enough. FWIW the Oly coaches are teaching me, NO its NOT about jumping or pulling the weight UP quick as you can (you DO want explosive hip extension) its about [B]PULLING UNDER[/B] the bar as quick as you can. (he tells me a$$ down! a$$down! a$$down! - I drive them nuts!)
The other biggest tip I learned for these & front squat is - believe it or not - take a huge breath, chest up & out - then lift.[/QUOTE]

Deb thanks, but I'm more worried about the form right now. I think the strength is coming from cleaning up my already pretty clean food intake. I think you are doing exactly what you need to be doing for you. I get that pulling under the bar comment a lot too. Hell, I've spent years trying to prevent pulling myself under stuff. It takes time.

[B]02.17.2011-Thursday
Weightlifting[/B]

Warmup

[B]Powerclean[/B]
35kg 3x3
40kg 2x2
45kg 2x1

[B]Snatch (blocks)[/B]
15kgx5
25kgx4x2
28kgx3x2
32kgx2x3 (I was going great, better acceleration, & not even thinking about it - then I stopped to talk. Ugh, just could not get back in the groove! FRUSTRATING)
35kgx1x4 (missed 3)
37kgx1x4 (miss - kept pulling with my arms, it was like I never did this before)
35x1x3 (he dropped my weight, first one was ok, second one he said was the best snatch I ever did, 3rd eh - done)

[B]Front Squat[/B]
35kg3
40kgx3x8

I'm thinking I should've rested Tuesday, arms are pretty sore & I'm tired... As frustrating as tonite was, coach said I was doing very well and that he wished he had video when I first came, because I look like a completely different athlete now.

Keep your chin up Deb. Sounds like you're doing great!

[B][U]February 17[/U][/B]
10 minutes of jump rope practice
5 minutes of dynamic stretching
10 minutes of stretching

[B]"Annie"[/B]
50-40-30-20 and 10 rep rounds of:
Double-unders
Sit-ups
[B]8:57 (PR by 4:52)[/B]

DUs too broken up, but still happy with the time, especially after not doing any crossfit or jump roping for a couple of weeks. Felt pretty gassed which surprised me. I think I'm jumping too high on the DUs and need to relax more.

Easy day today. The next three days will be harder.
