Awesome stuff Nik ! I will try it asap, but I only have 50kg of sand so that will be a big pile of suck :D

Wow Nik I like this! I have a big leather duffel bag thats already filled with 70lb of sand and I'm going to have to put 30lb of metal plates in it. I'll probably have it slung over one shoulder most of the time. I would imagine what type of weight container/how your carrying it will have a huge effect on how hard this is.

Nice work on your 1/2bw mile! Looks like a fast time to beat:evilsmile.

I bet that bag will really do well as long as the weights don't start hitting you in the back and such. You are right. If I had to carry two 40 lbs dumbbells I would hav had to put them down for grip. But still I bet I could move pretty quick even like that.

I want to do it again. I wen at it with the idea of not putting the bar down.

AHAHAHAA, you know he wont train with you again!!

I am really sore, really sore!! Shoulders, traps, bycepts, outer pec, calfs are killing me!!I'm ok, but really sore. I don't know if it is just the challenge or that and wednessdays WOD DOMs. I am taking a rest day. I saw todays WOD and I wouldn't do it justice the way I feel. I will make it up, because it looks great. I really want a go at it.

Yes you can always just push the workouts on one day seeing as you hit the challenge on rest day. Good thinking Nik.

I thought after I made him sick the first time he may not come back for more punishment but big respect to him that he has. Reckon he will be fine this time around, I will chase him all the way shouting.

Sorry, the internet at the shop was acting wierd, I guess it is the crossfit site, can you or anyone pullup the main page?


WOD

10 squat clens
50 ghds
8 cleans
40 ghds
6 cleans
30 ghds
4 cleans
20 ghds
2 cleans
10 ghds

time 19:29

Cleans were good and smooth, all though on the first 10 reps like on rep 4 or5 I remembered the hip drive and got better form. I missed onlt 2 reps.

GHD's on the other hand were really broken and hard. REALLY broken. I could get the first 10 reps of each round and struggled from there. reps in 3's2's 5's.

No excuses, just the facts.

I love a good squat clean!!

Re: Nik
 
Did this week’s challenge an hour or so after yesterday's SC/ GHD beasty

Carry 1/2 bodyweight for 1 mile. Any drops are rewarded with 5 burpees before continuing.

Wore 9kg (20lb) vest and carried a short bar loaded to 38kg giving me 47kg which is about a kilo heavy atm. Kept a steady dog trot the whole way with bar carried in high bar position with hands draped wide crucifix style - no drops at all.

10 minutes flat - happy with that. Great challenge Nik, really enjoyed that!!

Cheers, kempie

Re: Nik
 
"Angie"

For time:
100 Pull-ups
100 Push-ups
100 Sit-ups
100 Squats

time 16:16 exactly 1 min faster then last time.

Situps hurt after yesterdays GHD's, but were pretty good. Squats were good today.I caught myself slowing down without even knowing it.

Pullups are like pullups are. Stopped at 30 reps first time.

Great job on Angie nik! That's a fast time. How come u only got 30 pullups in a row? Was that part of ur strategy or did u just feel tired? I got 30 pullups in a row for the first time. Was on pace to get a pr on Angie with 50 squats left and both my quads cramped up. So I had to finish the last 50 in 3 and 5s while stretching out in between. I might try ur chLlenge tonight, depends how my quads feel. They r sore from cramping up.

Just do the challenge tonight whatever your quads feel like Ernie, its not too bad and you will not have to bend your legs that much, also we felt we could of gone faster so run fast from the beginning. :evilsmile

Scott is right. It sounds worse then it really is, it goes faster then you think it will. GO do it, and go fast. I didn't go fast enough at the start.

Re: Nik
 
Complete as many rounds as possible 20 minutes of:
95 pound Thruster, 5 reps
95 pound Hang Powercleans, 7 reps
95 pound Sumo Deadlift High-pull, 10 reps

8 round.
last time I got 8 almost 9 rounds. I was in line for 9/10 round at the 10min mark but died quickly ther after. Thrusters and sumos are two of my goats, cleans were a break and really fast, but that was about it. All exercized were in really good form.

[QUOTE=Nick Harris;670925]Great job on Angie Nik, very impressive! How were the Thrusters? Smoked?[/QUOTE]

Thrusters were hard, but I did all sets unbroken. I think it is mental at this point. Once I got to it, I would do one, take a deep breath do another.

About to do that sandbag challenge on the streets of Philly. 100lbs bag, bw=185-190 (haven't weighed in yet today).

I was trying. I'm looking forward to the snaches, but even with good form I don't know if I can pull what Ernie pulled.

I did some snach warm up this morning to try to get it going. We will see.

Ernie Guevara 09-29-2009 07:04 AM

Re: Nik
 
No worries nik just get one rep at a time. Try not to get frustrated like me with it lol. I guess we all just need more practice on it since the snatch doesn't come up as often as the other oly lifts. Good luck with it!

Nik Nichols 09-29-2009 08:17 AM

Re: Nik
 
Thanks Ernie.
10:00 break

Ku practice, DU practice(5 in a row)

Hey Nik:
Yea, I watched the video and my snatch needs serious help (I need to do an oly cert next!!). The video was great (note: you attached the KB video here in error, I believe). I definitely bring the bar out away from my body too much and this "pocket" idea and going slooooooowwww till that point really drives in the point to keep that bar CLOSE to body.
I still can't get 2 consecutive DU so 5 in a row is amazing to me! :)
Great job as usual!

Thanks for the correction. You are right. This should be the proper link(w/f/s) [url]http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CFJournal_BurgenerFiles_ThePocketTrailer.wmv[/url]


Also stay over the bar as you pullit to the pockets. Me I don't have big weight on the snach, but my form is ok. So today will be a test of what I can do. I have never maxxed it. So unfortunatly I'll have to build to a max insteat os pushing close to a max from a start.
But the unknown is the fun part. ''What can I do?''Part
