[QUOTE=Nik Nichols;647745]Hey, You just had to rub it in!!:rofl: I havent done this one yet, i looked through the last time it was done to get an idea of how long it takes. I hav a 16 lbs ball full of kitty litter that leaks on you. It sucks big time. I will be taping the heck out of it for tomarrow.

Honestly I'm not really impressed with it. It will be tiring yes, and a mental push to get it done, but I want more.(we all know I hate them anyway) I hope to get ot done at first break and have lunch for more. Maybe squats. Maybe I'll video pullup attempt.

What do you think will you be hitting it?[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=Brad Rasmussen;647823]I'm going to try to finish it in around 8 minutes. Last time i got 9 something.[/QUOTE]

Both of you aim to get it under 8 minutes for sure. Just bang out 3 sets of 50, I did 50 wall ball a couple of weeks back in about a minute and a half after already beasting my legs. It's not an extremely intense metcon because you have to wait for the ball to come back down, just take your time, focus on tight squat form and it will be cake. Tell you what go for 7 mins instead.

Might be worth you doing something heavy before hand then doing as many wall ball in 7 mins as possible Nik.

Ok 7 min's if I can catch the ball. I will tape the living crap out of it.

I'll hit it at 10:00 this morning I hope.

Hey it is only 7 min!!:rofl:
[QUOTE=Brad Rasmussen;647823]I'm going to try to finish it in around 8 minutes. Last time i got 9 something.[/QUOTE]

Brad 7 min is the goal!! I have a 16 lbs ball, so take that into consideration. My issue will be catching the ball, it always is. I only have one eye. So depth perception is a mess. catching anything is hard. But in saying that I do wall ball every time it comes up. Oh and getting tire slows me down too. But the 7 min challenge looks hard.

Scott Jenkins 08-20-2009 06:37 AM

Re: Nik
 
You should definately do the Wall Ball Nik as it will help to train your depth perception, just dont get cat litter in your good eye. Why dont you get a roll of duct tape and just go round and round the ball until its got no leaks in it.

Go for the wallball nik! I did it today with 45 lb thrusters in 6:56. So I met ur 7 minute challenge! The thruster sub is a killer. Left me on the floor for a couple of minutes feeling nauseous!

I used to do thrusters before I had a wallball, i think it's the closest sub but in no way do I think it's comparable. It just doesn't have the accuracy,coordination or precision element to it. Good effort though.

"Karen"

For time:
150 Wallball shots, 20 pound ball


timw 10P:41

I sucked, broke up to sets of arround 5 after the first 50, ball leaked all over, legs burning, shoulders burnung. Brady said I was throwing short. not 10 feet, he said I was 6 to 8 inches short.

i will be out of the office on delivery, so no lunch extras. Saturday is looking shakey, i have to pick up my wife at the airport and no one to watch the little one. So I may loose saturday.

My turn to suck.

That ain't too bad at all. I'd still have opted for an AMRAP 7 though ;)

Impromptu rest days are the business. Take the time out with your family and relish it.

Well I could have stopped at 7min, but I don't see as to wher I could have done any better. I was going as best as I could, so stopping at 7 would just really translate in to less reps. It is just a weekness for me.

The effort is all that counts Nik and as long as you put alot into it, you'll get alot in return. Anyway, that time isn't bad. On my named WOD spreadsheet, 10 min is listed as right inbetween advanced and intermediate. Us crossfitters just expect more from ourself:ranting2:

Agreed matey , agreed. For me if I know that i'm going to slack a little I'll set myself a time limit and bust my *** to get it done in that time. You're absolutely right though... 3 minutes aint going to make a bit of difference.

True enough, I will have to think like that more. But on this workout ...well it is a weakness, I just need to work on it.


3:00 break

I got 2 in a row muscleups, grip held for a second rep...sweet slow progress.

30 C2B BFkip. Wanted more, but burned at 30.

shoulder press
85x3
105x3
125x2
135x1(current pr)

I tried 2 more reps but failed. Close to getting over the 135lbs hump.

Hand stand practice, I just kicked up and held for as long as I could, no time, no real rep setup.

Consistently hitting 30 c2b is solid fella. I'm ironing out a few weaknesses myself. It's just part a big part of what we do.

Thanks, and excatly, I have a lot of ironing to do!! But there are a couple of weeknesses that i tend to neglect, wall ball and thrusters. My other weekness I don't dislike, I'm just not good at.

I attatched the one that I use. It's kind of old and doesn't include all the named WODs. Also it may not be 100% correct, I don't know who made it.

The challenge wod looks like it's going to be a suckfest, I'll have to make the runs 600m as we only have a 100m at our box. Bit of a mare beceause everything becomes a turn around. I guess it sucks to be me today, could be worse though.... HSPU's could have turned up.

Scott Jenkins 08-21-2009 02:46 AM

Took a while to find your Karen Nik, loads going on here while I been sleeping. Great job on finishing with all the litter landing in your face, my hands a very sore today also, we could both do with a nice Dynamax ball next time around.

I was thinking that a gig soft dinamax would be so much better. We will see. Martin and I are off to hit this lung fest now. My lower back is a bit sore this morning from all the squats and wallball. the situps should work it out though.

Camille, I couldn't find a tennis ball, so I found a wheel off a modle car, a little bigger then a golf ball a little smaller then a tennis ball. hard, but a little spongy. It helped. I need to roll it a couple of more time. It made a big difference. I just need more time. Thanks for the tip!!

Hope it mends itself soon mate. Bodyweight HPC across the board is nice. I think that if you'd ramped up you might have pb'd. What's you oly lifting like?

Agreed with Leon, BW hang power cleans is strong work Nik and thats really inspired using a toy car wheel as a roller, I have a cardboard tube, just done those walking lunges and I think its needed.

Oly is fair to good I think. I would have ramped up, I wanted to. I wanted atleast 170, but I struggled so much with the 165, I didn't feel like I had anymore room to go. I was/am tired from the last couple of days. I just didn't have my head right and a little tired. Martin takes a mesure of my focus. I wanted to ramp belive me, I just didn't have it. i pushed more weight total then last time. That is a pr in itself.

True mate, sometimes that just happens. It happened to me the other day with the PC/FS/Row wod, my head just wasn't in the right place. As that weight gets heavier it's essential that you create speed through the middle, get the hips to go vertical at extension and actively pull under. As long as you're above parallel that'd count as a legit rep.

Thanks mate, I really need to get on the bar more and work them.

Re: Nik
 
Nice hpc's. I'm with ya on being tired from the last couple wods. My legs were so sore last night that I had a hard time getting up off of the couch. Got a large blister on the palm of each hand from yesterday's pullups too. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's rest day. Got my rings yesterday. Maybe use tomorrow to play around with em. I was contemplating doing the challenge wod tomorrow but it looks awfull painful. Probally hit it sometime next week. Have a good weekend.
