Re: USAW Standard

First lift, three red lights for sure. Second lift had a press out in the left arm. There can't be any movement of the elbow after the lifter has hit the lowest point in the jerk.

Re: Coaching women...

I also take exception to that statement.... I've seen many guys who so uber-competitive, they will do whatever it takes to "win", such as cheating reps, ROM, etc. I had a guy pass me once in a...

Re: Indoor gym photography buffs?

I don't do a lot of indoor photography myself - I mostly shoot birds outdoors with a Canon 1D Mk III and a 500mm f/4. However as others have noted, your challenge is the need for high shutter speed...

Re: Still can't do a single kipping pullup.

I had the same problem - I could do strict pullups but it took me a year to figure out kipping. It was very frustrating because I had the strength but there were so many WODs that I couldn't Rx...

Re: appendicitis

Mine ruptured suddenly when I was in 8th grade (30 years ago.) I'd never had any issues with it before, and the pain wasn't localized to that side, so my parents didn't realize what was wrong until...

Re: Olifts: Shrug back, or shrug up?

Jon North's videos have really helped me, particularly his "hit and catch" series. He is a big advocate of making contact with the bar.

Re: Liz's Quest for a Muscle Up

Thanks! Things have been going pretty well lately, I like our gym's new format of posting these baseline/1RM days a month at a time. It's a lot of fun because I love testing myself. Tomorrow we're...

Re: Where oh where is Lisbeth?

This is totally off topic, but my first name is spelled Lisabeth. Very close to yours ... and the source of endless spelling errors which is why I go by "Liz" usually. ;)

Re: Liz's Quest for a Muscle Up

Thursday, July 17: We took on "Lynne" for the first time. I had no idea what to expect because I wasn't sure what I could do for 5 rounds. So I was shooting for a score of 10 each round, with 70%...

Re: Liz's Quest for a Muscle Up

Hi Milton, I'm doing pretty good! I just kept the same log, though I'm mostly just updating it with PR's and not every WOD. Sounds like your paleo nutrition is working well for you!

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

PRs are so fun! We did max box jump the other day and I hit 35.5". My goal was 36" so I consider my goal met! I was fine up until 33" and then I hit that wall of fear, so I had to try this several...

Re: Affiliate skips ever short heavy day.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Nice job Tricia! A PR is always nice to get even if it's not quite what you were shooting for .. same thing happened for me with "Cindy" last week, but I'll take the PR and get my goal the next time!

Re: Banded MUs

Yes, I used them and they definitely helped. I progressed to smaller and smaller bands until I got down to the smallest one (#0) and then I was able to do a muscle up for real!

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Got a 1RM overhead squat today of 115lb (PR by 10lb). That's the most weight I've had overhead in any lift! :pepper:
