Jason-
We do Tabata Something Else with Abmats, legs in butterfly. Start with hands flat, touching ground behind your head and then they touch your feet.

Nice work on the Bear - even though you only got 5 rounds. Don't sweat it. That is one of the hardest workouts because it is so sneaky and involves a bit of gamesmanship to figure out what weights to use.

What was that 1/28/09 WOD, Thrusters? Cleans? :shrug:

Whatever it was - looks like a lot of weight!

I'm an idiot...it was thrusters.
Thanks for the info on TSE...and yeah. The Bear is a monster. It's one of those workouts that really takes a mental as well as a physical toll.

Did 'Grace' today.

got it on video that I'll post on my testimonial page once I get it on youtube...having lots of trouble with that. Also after further review i only did 29 instead of 30. Some people punish themselves for that. I don't. I just have to beat my time next time doing the full 30..

My time
3:12.

Also did max rep pushups.
47. Definitely had more in me but wasn't feelin' it after grace. Had to beat Carey though...

bodyweight 177.5.

usually do two strength exercises on this day but since I had rugby practice I just went with one.

Deadlift (I'm still going super light on the weight until I feel comfortable again)
10 - 132
5 - 182
3 - 202
3 - 212
3 - 222
3 - 232
3 - 252

All felt okay. Probably kick it up a notch next DL day.

Also had rugby practice. Lots of running, pushups, situps and BURPEES!

Ran 2 500 M shuttle runs.

1st one was like 2:14
2nd one was 2:22.

Today I wanted to do muscle ups. I've been doing them occasionally since I got my first one but I really want to get good at them so I can incorporate more of them into my workouts. My plan today was to do as many muslce ups as possible in 30 mins....

So...basically. I did 3 MU's in about 5:30. Couldn't do another one. Elbows and shoulders felt like they were going to explode.

Counting my warmup I did 4.

Ran home with my tail between my legs.

Better luck next time.

Workout # 2 for today. Wanted to see how many times I could OHS my bodyweight.

BW 175 (rounded down a pound or 2 :) )

10 - 65
5 - 95
3 - 135
3 - 155
2 - 175
2 - 175

Just went away after two reps...and they were definitely ugly. I think I got low enough though on 3 of the 4.

Or as Matt calls it...'Rhabdo Day'

Five rounds for time of:
2 pood Kettlebell swings, 25 reps
25 GHD Sit-ups
25 Back Extensions
25 Knees to Elbows

38:49 Rx'd

Don't know what a good time for this is...and I'm not talking crappy range of motion either but I'm just happy I got through it. Holy Mackerel!

gday jason..

just looking through your log...

you do have a weakness!!! for ages I thought you were a machine...

congrats on the bw OHS.... at first all I read was squat, and I was wondering why you were squatting light!! then I saw the word overhead.... :notworth:

what would be an interesting challenge is to OHS your pre-CF BW... :stir:

love your work and your vidz!!!!
