400m run
100+ SUs
10 leg swings, each leg, both direction
10 Air Squats
15 sec fingertip plank hold
10 push ups
10 bar taps
5, 2 pull ups
10 45# Presses
10 45# OHS

[B]WOD:[/B]
Strict Press 1-1-1-1-1

Push Press 65-65-115-135-155 (2)-135
Push Jerk 65-95-115-135(3)-125

[I]I did this last on 17 May. I couldn't hit the loads I did then. This was frustrating since 135 felt so easy on the strict press! Going to the Push Press & Push jerk were tougher since you had to do more reps per set...[/I]

11/4 WOD
A. Reverse Tabata Superman Holds
These were quite easy.

B1. Overhead Squats: 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 @60 sec rest
75-95-115-125-135
Pleased to get a couple at 135. They felt good.

B2. 2 Strict Pull ups to 3 C2B to Max Kipping PU's, 5 sets @60 sec rest
**Coach's Note - No rest between pull ups on part B. Go right from strict to C2B and finish with as many kipping pull ups as you can do.
7 kipping PU's-6-6-5-5

C. 5 Rounds For Time @95#/65#
3 Press
5 Push Press
10 Split Jerks (Alt Leg per jerk)
11:29.
First set straight through then it became a train wreck. Probably cheated a bunch of reps, particularly strict presses.

B. November Monthly Throwdown
20 Min to Find Your 3RM Hang Squat Clean
155, a couple fails at 160.

Liked everything about this except my misses at 160 (current bodyweight). Felt the hips pop and dropped quickly and deeply under the bar. I think all the KB swinging helped, I'm interested to see what this becomes at the end of the month.

Wednesday November 5, 2014

Walked 1.5 miles
Rowed 1k

Prowler Push Pyramid
No words can describe how horrible and wonderful and painful and fulfilling this was... Start with an empty prowler and a pile of 45# plates at point A.
Push the prowler to point B (which was 30 yards of blacktop away). Walk back to point A. Pick up a 45# pound plate and farmer carry it to prowler.
Push prowler to point A then back to point B. Walk back to point A. Pick up another 45# pound plate and farmer carry it to prowler. Rinse and repeat until you have the whole pile of 45# pound plates on prowler (which today was luckily only 4 plates) Rinse and repeat unloading the prowler.
Stop to hurl and spit and curse as needed

After the prowler pyrmiad, which I did by myself in the twilight, while putting it all away, the class doing the WOD in the box was doing their CrossFit total. A couple of 20 somethings were pretty impressed with their 300# deadlift and for some inexplicable reason were disrespecting one of my forty-something friends who had just deadlifted 405#. He was, understandably, pretty pleased with himself and, equally understandably, confused about why the kids were disrespecting him. I know, it makes no sense why they'd disrespect someone twenty years older who just deadlifted 100 pounds more than they did. As I walked by I decided to support my friend so we went back and forth doing 405# deadlifts for a while. So these were "cold bar" deadlifts for me. At some point the 20 somethings felt shame and skulked away and I felt better for my friend.

A couple of physical therapy sessions and lots of "quality time" working on a trigger point in my glute medius has me feeling better. Still hurts to get up after I sit and it takes a minute or two to stand up straight but I can now walk and do most other stuff without pain. :kicking0:

JT, AGREED with what Cliff said! One of the things I liked about CrossFit was encouraging those not at our levels. Yeah, we'll give each other what for, but I make sure we all know it's in fun! I just don't get disrespecting other folks...

Nice job on the rows (and Presses), Bill S!

@Alden, glad to hear you are on the mend.

Thursday November 7, 2014

10 TGUs on each side with a 20# KB.
On one of these, every vertebrae in my back popped in a rippling rifle shot progression. After the initial shock it felt great.

Rowing Research
Rowing For Distance versus Rowing For Calories
Many people have asked me about strategies for rowing for time vs. rowing for calories. My research discovered that the Concept2, which was initially known as an ergometer ("Erg"), doesn't actually measure distance but instead measures force applied (e.g., ergs). It computes distance from the ergs. After poking around I found the erg equation. The erg equation includes a quadratic term. The distance equation is a second derivative of the erg equation and thus is linear. Therefore, as you speed up, the rate at which calories are counted increases exponentially while the distance covered increases linearly. Here's some data points from yesterday's experiment

I rowed 1 minute at each of the following speeds, and recorded the average watts, distance, calories, and calories per her. As you can see, the calories increase exponentially and the distance increases linearly, with the big inflection point in the exponential curve being around 1:50/500.

time/500 watts distance calories cal/hour
4:00 25 125 6 387
3:40 32 135 6 410
3:20 43 149 7 447
3:00 59 159 8 480
2:40 83 185 9 582
2:20 120 210 11 713
2:00 191 249 15 956
1:40 320 291 23 1339

So what does all that mean? It means, if you're rowing for distance, going a little faster gets you to the finish line a little faster. If you're rowing for calories, going a little faster gets you to the finish line a LOT faster, especially if you can go faster than 1:50/500m.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
@Bill, working the heavy bag and the speed bag is the epitome of "constantly varied". Working the speed bag is a big part of my Olympic lifting practice b/c it's so good for co-ordination and hand speed and eye/hand co-ordination.

Saturday November 8, 2014

Walked one lap around the muddy farm.

Swam 24 minutes continuously. It is odd to be in the pool with no triathlon circled on the calendar. It's interesting how much math and physics my brain does while swimming.

The Shed 'o Pain lived up to its name this morning...
It was brisk when we started and sultry when we finished.
There seems to be some kind of local weather phenomenon that occurs inside the Shed when people start lifting and moving and met-conning (is that a word?)

3 T2B (these were easy today and are no longer a "goat")
5 burpees (these were incredibly hard, moving 255# in a burpee is hard)
7 thrusters (75#, I used 75# b/c I haven't done a thruster during the Obama administration and remember them being hard, they weren't hard, maybe Oly lifting makes thrusters easier)

Row 5000m 26:15

Feeling a little sore and tired today. Rowed an easy 21 spm pace. I have a goal of running an 8 mile Spartan Race in July if my knees will allow it. The plan is to do as much low impact cardio over the winter as possible. I know it's not running, but there just aren't that many miles left on these arthritic old things. I'm working on the boredom thing too. I might need something more entertaining than Seinfeld reruns while I row.

Monday November 10, 2014

Two hours of supervised snatch drills with Coach Dan Bell at RCW.
Since we have 51 weeks until the next meaningful meet, we are breaking it down to the basics and starting over to try to do it right.

About an hour of yesterday's practice involved moving an empty bar from about 2 inches up and down into the power position. Another half hour involved moving the empty bar from the top of the knee caps to the power position. My glutes and hammies are screaming today. Who knew that the lower body was used in Oly Lifting....

Walked 1.2 miles at 2.0mph on the dreadmill, increasing the incline slowly.

Did 50 knee cap to power position rebends with an empty bar.

5 Rounds
Row 500 M
Incline DB Bench 45 lbs

Cable Pull Downs 185 lbs 3x10

Kept all of the rows between 2:00 and 2:05 which feels pretty hard. I have no idea what a 7:00 2000 M must be like.

last nite....feeling a bit better


Multi Grip: 5-3-1+ (75%-85%-95%) 145/165/185
calculated off a .9% of 1RM

Ext. Rot. Band Pulls: 3x20/s *no rests

9 Pin Press: 1RM 210lbs

Ext. Rot. Band Pulls: 4x20/s

Mega Bow 1-1/2 Rep: 8-8-8 52/72/92

Tate Press: 12-10-8-6 15-20-25-30

Flat Bench Ski Band Pull Overs: 3min.

Single Arm DB Snatch: 10-10-10/s 10/12/15

so at the start of the class my coach asks me for a chat....his request to think about crossing over at the box from xfit to the darkside of powerlifting.

i thought about it for the next hour and after a bit more of a conversation with him november 30 i will be doing an invite only powerlifting total at the box and then december 1st going full time with the powerlifting side of things.

it seems like it may be a good fit esp. after talking to the wife last nite and our both wanting to tighten up our eating. we had done the zone/paleo thing hard in the spring and it worked for us so this should be a good fit for the next few months anyways.

@bill I have no idea what a 7:00 2000 M must be like

my fastest 2,000 m. row has been 7:20ish and it by the end it really did not feel all that great :D i can only imagine what a 7 minute for 2,000 would feel like........
