Re: The Bassman's Log (Steve Lampl)
 
[quote=Chris Scott;415343]Hi Steve! I love to see that you're a night owl, too. Couple thoughts...
-I love my Door Gym for working on deadhangs. I think I saw that you know about grease the groove. It really works--in the 6 weeks after buying my Door Gym I went from 2 deadhang pullups to 9.
-When you get your copy of Starting Strength, you'll be happy to find that a correct squat is "ligament neutral." Rippetoe himself has no left ACL, and tells stories about people squatting shortly before and shortly after total knee replacements. And there's many stories of people who rehabbed long-ago knee injuries that they thought to be chronic, simply by squatting correctly past parallel. The mile should be much tougher on your knee than the squat.

So let me be the first to say, great goals! Now go out there and kick some a$$!

P.S. Doesn't insanity involve expecting [I]different[/I] results when doing the same thing?[/quote]

Hey Chris,

Thanks for the great thoughts. I've considered buying a PU bar, but I don't know how well our door frames will handle it - - new house and all, we're also kinda afraid of marking things up.

I've gotten my SS book - - I can really feel the difference in my bum knee when my squatting form is correct.

Thanks about the goals. Kick some butt..........get my butt kicked; it all pays the same. I'm all over it!

As for the insanity thing, I'm just quoting an unknown source. I get the impression of "permanently stuck in a rut" from it.

[quote=Bob Guere;415486]Posts before mine might say this already, so I apologize if I'm repeating this. Working on cardio is fine as well as intervals, but I promise you this; If you continue the WODs from the main site, which include plenty of metcon, you will up your cardio capacity faster than you thought possible. I've been doing this 9 months now, and I still get winded, but I've run a 5k maybe 6 times all year and have knocked the time down over 2 minutes. Before I quite TKD, my sparring capacity was HUGE! All from just the main site WODs. So, be patient, don't doubt coach's madness... there is a method. You will increase your capacity faster than you will on the climber and elliptical. I promise you![/quote]

No apologies necessary Bob! I've read some other comments also regarding metcon vs. cardio. Maybe I'm just relying on how well I used to do with interval and high-intensity continuous cardio and comparing that with being so winded thru CF. My lack of lung capacity I just attribute to being de-conditioned. Maybe I do just need to be more patient. Thing is, even with the WODs scaled way back, sometimes just the gross movements (e.g., Clean and Jerk, Thrusters, etc) with very little weight are anaerobic exercise for me at this stage of the game. That's the reasoning behind my adding in cardio to raise my base conditioning level.

Sorry I was so long winded getting that out!

Hey Nancy!

I've sure been thinking about it. Just don't know if I want to brave the snow every hour or so in the middle of winter - - had as much as two feet on the ground for about a week last winter. We've got the perfect place for an outdoor bar, but it would mean slogging through the white stuff to get to it!

It's amazing just how much I [I][B]cannot[/B][/I] eat anymore! Two previously "normal" meals for me Saturday made me feel like I'd eaten the Goodyear blimp - - minus the helium!

We're actually just about 1 1/2 hours east of Modesto on the west side of the Sierras at about 4600 feet. Tho I'm a pretty hardy sole and [U][B]LOVE[/B][/U] the snow, I'm not sure about braving it for a cold pull-up bar. Besides, I'm one of those sort (with the black cloud which tends to follow me) who'd probably get too close to the bar once I was able to do a few pull-ups and my lips would stick to it.........

Thanks, Chuck! Knee feels pretty good, especially on squats done with proper form. Almost no ill sensation whatsoever. Versa climber and stair master help it to track better too. I go for the first of my new PT sessions tomorrow, so well see how the physiology goes.... (did I say that right?).

Nancy,

You're too kind, but I can't take credit for coming up with the push-up GTG. Saw it somewhere early on and said to myself; "Self, you need to be doing that!" My push-ups are coming [I]S L O W L Y[/I], but unfortunately, it's always been harder for me than pull-ups. I'll hit a point with the pull-ups and then take off (at least, I did when I was younger), but the push-ups have always sucked!

[I]REST DAY!

Physical Therapy, Session 1 for Right Knee.
[/I][/B]
Well.......I learned today that I don't really have a muscle imbalance between my VMO and vastus lateralis (inside and outside quad muscles), but rather a markedly weaker right hip flexor / adductor - - it's probably only half as strong as my left hip. This is causing the knee cap to track to the outside of its lateral range and the VMO "tilts" the knee cap as it contracts and the knee straightens. Sooooooo, we'll see what a month of PT will do for starters.

[/B]12.5# X 5 X 3 (alternating each arm) - total 6 sets (3 ea arm). Deceptively simple exercise - - in fact, was very difficult to both keep careful form (and not swing weight) and use more than that light a weight. Tried once with only 20# - - too much!

I feel you on the injury fears. Six weeks into SS, and I still catch myself wondering from time to time if squatting will make my knees explode or deadlifts make me a paraplegic. <shrug> Heard these things all my life, and it takes time for them to go away completely.

[QUOTE=Stephen R. Lampl;420828][B][U]FRIDAY, 10/10/08[/U]:[/B]

[B][I]WARM-UP:
[/I][/B][I]Stationary Cycling[/I][I] - 10:00[B]. [/B]L5 / 2.4 miles HR 104.

[B]WOD WU: DLs
[/B]10 reps with 45# bar
5 reps X 135# - felt good
5 reps X 225# - also felt good, but definitely no stamina for sets of 15!

[B]WOD: "Mr. Joshua" - 5 rounds for time.
400m Run
30 GH Sit-ups
250# DL X 15 reps

Modified Pack/Puppy Scaling: [/B][/I][I]3 rounds for time: [B]26:15.[/B][/I]
[I]1.25 mile stationary cycling L5 / 110 RPM
30 GH sit-ups (no GH bench, so used flat weight bench, hooked feet under BB, back extension below horizontal).
135# DL X 15 reps. [U]Almost[/U] failed on last two reps - third set, but kept good form.

[B]Addt'l Strength Work[/B][/I]:
[I]Push Press.
WU = 45# X 10 reps.
[B]WO:[/B]
65# X 5
85# X 5
95# X 5
105# X 3
105# X 3 (Couldn't get past the third rep / lock out on the 4th either time!)
95# X 3 (spent - - couldn't do a 4th rep here either).
[/I][B]Note:[/B][I] Today, [B]my WO sucked![/B][/I] Felt weak, had the problem (again!) of catching my breath - - pulse averaging 144 - 150. No endurance in the legs.

Perhaps it's time to re-evaluate how I'm approaching my WOs![/QUOTE]

Time to re-evaluate in what regard? I would say on virtually any weight lifting complex centered WOD I feel weak, out of breath, and like my lungs are going to cough blood. That's part of the game.
