Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!

Press x 1


Can't seem to figure out the magical alignment of planets that allows me to press more than 185. I've done it a couple times, but can't seem to do it consistently.


15 back squats, 315#
500m row


This was a challenge form CrossFit Endurance. My sub-3 gets me into the cert for free. Free certs are SWEET!


30 min AMRAP
7 deadlifts, 185#
7 knees to elbow
7 burpees

This month's Painstorm, looks a lot easier on paper. I went with overhand grip on the DL's. Using an alternating grip would make the KTE's a lot easier. I'll probably try this again.

Haha, forgot to post my score for Painstorm.

18 rounds


Weighted Pullups x 5


5 x 500m row, 2min rest in between

Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
3 rounds

10 thrusters, 135#
10 burpees


This was a lot harder than I expected. I flew through the first round in about seconds, but the second round of thrusters hit me like a ton of bricks.

Good Stuff....I might have to give that one a try. Heavy thrusters always kick my arse...although I make up for it with the burpees. I'm assuming the burpees didn't slow you down though?

Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
The burpees weren't a problem, though I was a little winded on the second set. I still don't feel like it should have been as hard as it was. I was a meal behind schedule that day, which might have had something to do with it. I'll try it again in a month or so.

I came up with the idea of doing a FGB style WOD with the 12 x 3 min rounds a while ago, but I had never actually done it. Man, grueling is the only word that can describe it. However, an hour and a half later, I feel pretty good.

Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!

Dumbell Bench Press x 10


2000m row


Back seized up on the last rep of the last set of BP. It passed quickly, but it made me a little nervous going into the row. About 500m in my left forearm started to cramp up. Apperently, my grip still hadn't recovered from all the pullups and swings on Wednesday.


4 rounds
400m run
50 squats


Not my best time on this, but not my worst either.


Clean and Jerk x 1


Hurt my wrist on the second attempt at 245. I'll be running tomorrow, so it won't be a problem. However, I'm supposed to do "Hansen" on Thursday; hopefully, it will be better by then.

Christopher G. Woods 05-18-2009 03:28 PM

Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
3 x 10 each:

45# OHS
glute-ham raise
GHD situp

Deadlifts x 1


Back in action! Decided to take a week off after I hurt the wrist, let that and a few other things heal up a bit. Starting my new program today. The goal is to improve my O-lifting, become a faster rower/runner, and finally achieve the allusive 3 x Bodyweight Deadlift. Took a crack at it today; the first attempt started to come off the ground, but I was seeing stars after a few inches. The second attempt didn't even budge.

Trail Run- short loop

28:37 (PR)

First trail run of the season. Best time on this route (which used to be my medium route) by about a minute. Still not sure exactly how long it is. My guess is somewhere between 4 and 5 kilometers.
