[QUOTE=Jim Cordes;795475]Ran the Night Moves 5 k in 23:49.[/QUOTE]

This time placed me 8th out of 17 in the M45-49 bracket. Not bad for only the second 5K I've ever run; not my 2nd "5K race," my 2nd time [I]ever running[/I] 5K. I think there's something to this Crossfit "specializing in not specializing...."

[B]JJ[/B], Yes, our coach is using Wendler's formula. I'd be interested in looking into that as my overall strength can be improved. Is that online anywhere?

[/QUOTE]

[B]Jeff,[/B]

I'll hook you up. Look for a FB message. It works.

03.09.10: REST

03.10.10:

25 minutes cutting the grass with a push mower wearing 30 lb. weight vest.

Not the greatest WOD, but on 4 hours' sleep (GO HAWKS!!), somethin's better than nothin'. Wendler 5/3/1 DL day (week 2) tomorrow.

[QUOTE=Stephen R. Lampl;795260][I][B]My all time best is 315#.......

[/B][/I]Bill, I messed up here - - was thinking dead lifts. My all time best BS was 245#, but with poor form and back in my college (or shortly after) days. I am sooooo lucky I never hurt myself, because I did these wrong for 40 years! Form is good and solid now, so I am really pleased to be "earning" the increased weight.

Great advice on the K2Es! I'll have to try that, but perhaps that is what I do now (I can't visualize the motion in my mind right now :D). I've found that I start swinging, so if I time my next rep correctly, it counteracts the swing completely and I can just hoist my knees upwards (in theory).

Nice work on that AMRAP WOD![/QUOTE]

Stephen- 315 is darn good for Dead lifts! I've yet to break 300#! (SOON!)
Hope the K2E's work out! The big key is keeping the upper body LOOSE (Easier said than done!)

Hey Bill,

Maybe my recent experience will help. I got a little hamstring happy with my DL form.

I used to be very squatty, too upright, not recruiting my hamstrings enough. Then I adjusted my form by not initiating the lift until I felt tension in my hamstrings, mainly by pushing my butt back a lot/keeping my head up.

Problem was, I was too bent over at the waist, and not also recruiting my hips and quads enough. I was straining my back constantly and could barely get 300 up (down from a p.r. of 340).

The DL is a very natural lift, and someone told me something recently, it's really neither a hamstring lift nor a quad lift, but a hip lift.

[B]That said, I am now approaching it by keeping my head up/good lumbar curve, but wanting to feel equal engagement of my quads and hamstrings before initiating the lift.[/B] A) I think this is injury-free form, and b) the poundages are much easier when initiating the weight up from the ground with all your lower body muscles.

Now my 1RM is going through the roof (355).

Also, do a lot of pullups and lunges, good assistive exercises for leg and grip strength.

20 thrusters
20 sumo deadlift high pulls
20 push jerks
20 overhead squats
20 front squats
~perform 4 burpees every minute on the minute... including minute zero! (meaning the wod starts with 4 burpees). Rx'd is 95# (65#)
[B]9:41 Rx[/B] Eh. Did it in 8:44 on 3/5/10 before the shoulder. Not my strongest day. I screwed myself from the get go by only getting 18 thrusters, when I was still kinda feeling out what would happen with my shoulder. I should've pushed for more reps before the burpees. The burpees were like, nothing, nice little break. Not too bad, the shoulder didn't really bother me, and I learned I don't have to be afraid of the OHS, the PT has strengthened the RC/back a lot.

Post WOD:
Row 250

[B]Bill,

[/B]Great job on the 'task driven" Cindy!

[B]Pat,

[/B]Props on the great DL numbers!

[B]Deb,

[/B]Way to ROCK the Air Force WOD. I still can't imagine doing that workout - - the burpees would really bog me down; but I'd imagine your work with the weight vest has really helped.

[B]John J.,

[/B]The advice you gave Bill r.e., the dead lifts makes real sense. I have been merely addressing the bar, then preparing for the lift by tightening my core and setting my lumbar curve, and then initiating the lift by shoving my knees back. This seems to recruit primarily the posterior chain, but little quad engagement.

Is there a key for knowing when (or feeling when) engagement of the quads occurs properly?

Thanks for the feedback on the DL's.

Today in crossfit class, we did the following: AMRAP in 20 minutes: 5 HSPU's, 10 sit ups, 15 DB swings 45 lbs. Finished 11 or 12 R +5 HSPU's+10 sit ups. Lost count of rounds. I know I got lapped once by the trainer's wife and at least twice by the trainer. It was a fun work out.

Thanks Terry! Would have enjoyed seeing you. Talked with Nick quite a bit - - your programming is really paying off. I did a bit of research over on the CFE site and realize that if I'm going to progress, I've got to get my endurance up and get serious with the eating. I'm with Jeff too on the running progressions. Those look like a great place to start, but of course scaled back. BTW - glad it was a bit cooler at CF Modesto than where you did your runs! Sheesh!

hi peter,
the stress level running program is just part of my programming for GPP.
doing sprints will help you in many ways. i believe this program by coach rut is not specific for running or breathing, it's original intent is for conditioning athletes, (football, soccer players, etc).

i doubt we will be doing sprints in our wods at the games but who knows, i would love to see some sprints come up as opposed to 400/800m runs. just trying to be prepared for anything and working on my weaknesses....i do anticipate that there will be a WOD with rowing or running though.

[/B]TIME: 12:08.
[I]My max clean is 135#, so there was no way I was going to get close to doing this Rx'd. Tried 120# - - good weight for this WOD. Several missed reps - - hit and miss on the form, but still doable. Clapping push ups were HARD....did them in sets of 5 which degraded to 3s and then 2s at the end.....

[B]Skill / Strength work:
[/B][/I]1 X 5 of dead hang pull-ups with negatives
Box jumps (20") for speed/explosiveness of reps; 1 X 15, 2 X 10
DU practice - - about 10:00.

reps CANNOT be partitioned, you must complete all reps of each movement before moving on to the next!
[B]24:08[/B] My first Angie! She kicked my butt! Have to do better next time. [COLOR="Red"][B]I SPLIT MY HANDS OPEN, 7 RIPS, I bled into the chalk bucket, embarrassing![/B][/COLOR] and kind of humiliating. VERY disappointing, I honestly thought Id blow thru this in 20 minutes. Left hand opened at pullup 30, bleeding, making it extremely difficult to do the other 70 pullups, probably ripped the other hand trying to compensate. probably shouldn't even count as rx as I kept slipping off the bar...I had to have spent at least 10 mins. trying to finish the pullups. The rest of the workout went fine.

Post WOD:
Run 400M - stretch


[B]Strength: Press[/B]

Ouch! Did you tape properly? Check this hand-taping tutorial out: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBXyuyr_-gI[/url] (WFS)

Major props for working through the mess! :highfive:

Jim, +10 points for using the correct form of "their." (one of my many spelling and grammatical pet peeves!) :)

6/15 WOD

Deadlift 3-3-3-3-3
Followed by 1x 400 M Run for time.
Followed by Reverse Tabata L-Sits

225-245-265-285f-265f(1 only)-265
1:19

The 1:19 400m run was another Elite Goal satisfied (1:25)! Raced neck-and-neck with Glenn to the end, thanks for motivating me!
Deadlifts with Bowers. He smoked them, 3-repping his previous 1 rep max. I was somewhat disappointed in only lifting 265#; I couldn't even get 285# off the ground once. L-Sits were pretty bearable, although I wasn't able to fully extend my legs after about the second round.

Full house this morning, including four people who wanted showers. We either need to start buddying up in the shower, or get more showers.

Deb, most people cut their hands on 100 pull ups. I've done it even w. the use of soft rubber pads on the bars. I think that the calluses from everything else makes the tearing more likely. I keep a nail file on my desk to work on the calluses before going to the gym most days.

Monday 100614

For time:
Row 500 meters
Body weight Bench press, 30 reps
Row 1000 meters
Body weight Bench press, 20 reps
Row 2000 meters
Body weight Bench press, 10 reps



Used 225# for bench. finished in 33:09. Next time I need to use a lower weight. The end of each set had several partial reps.

Thanks [B]Claw[/B] for that link; I don't usually tape. [B]Pat,[/B] I hear you, I don't usually get that many tears! Lesson learned. I file all the time too (Ive always had calluses on my hands anyway). :)
