Re: A Bears Tale
Some heavy bench after a Fran is beyond me, nice !

What's your height ? I think we have about the same stats :) I'm 188cm, 85,5kg

Re: A Bears Tale
Hi Richard , I had about 20 mins break before the bench press as i was pushing my training partner through his Fran. My stats are 186cm/88kg so yes very similar to yours. Just looked at todays WOD and its more pullups. Dont think my grip has had time to fully recover since i started Xfit a month ago!

Re: A Bears Tale
You're doing a great job, and your grip needs WODS like these trust me, it'll be great ! But don't worry, with the 400m in between each pull-up set, your hands won't be too stressed.

Get some !

Re: A Bears Tale
Yes jus back from gym and enjoyed that one. Went hard as i could as well:

Nicole Run 400m then max reps chins for 20 mins

8 Rounds completed: 19 - 12 - 11 - 10 - 10 - 9 - 7 - 7 = 85

And not any grip problems today.

Practised Overhead squats for second time and managed 60k for 2 reps though was doin a lot of shakin. Cheers Rich for the encouragment

Today seeing as the WOD comprised of two movements i am yet to do i decided to spend an hour practising them with great results.

A first got my first HSPU nearly to the ground then got 4 single muscle ups.:pepper: Still a long way from being able to do 2 consecutive muscle ups as lose false grip on way down.

Still very pleased.
Afterwards i done bodyweight Deadlifts 90kg x 100 reps for time: 7.28
Then Half bodyweight Bent over rows 45kg x 100 reps for time: 4.28

Re: A Bears Tale
Good job Scott ! I'm still waiting for my first muscle-up, I have trouble with the false grip...

Congrats :highfive:

Re: A Bears Tale
Cheers Richard, I tried for about half hour with no success, then remembered someone said to look towards the ceiling and and aim for it and before i realised i was in the dip position. Im also having trouble with the false grip as when i try to do a negative MU i end i just falling for the lower half. I also think just using the false grip on all pull up related exercises for the last week has helped. Just wondering , do they have any Xfit gyms in Belgium as my nearest one is about two hours drive away, would be great to train in a gym like you see in the video demos!?

Re: A Bears Tale
Looking at the ceiling, I'll remember that. I still have a pain in my right wrist from months ago, I can't hold the false grip because of that (it's the only position where it still hurts).

There's no Crossfit gym over here, I wish there was one ! I train in a normal gym so I have to handle all the bars carefully and not drop that heavy weight on the floor, I bring my own rings, etc...

I'm going to California in July tho, I'll finally have the opportunity to train in an affiliate, and use some KETTLEBELLS !!!
