My time was a bit slower this time around because of some issues with tendons / thumbs / fingers / forearms. This is most noticeable during chinups.

Anyway, I figured I would post this for your enjoyment ... point, laugh, criticize, etc.

Oh, and I apologize for the potty mouth. You may want to turn it down if you are at work. Also, you may have to copy the entire link below into your browser, as the CF forum seems to cut it off at the brackets. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Nice work,
I was swearing today during elizabeth too!! Well looks like you wanted some feedback and you haven't gotten any yet so I'll throw out my 2 cents. Trust me I am no expert and your time on fran demolishes mine. Anyways, I don't know if it was the issues with your tendons, but you don't seem to be extending all the way down on your pullups. I bet if you extended all the way down and worked on your kip on the pullup portion, you would be faster than you already fast 4 minutes and change.

Thanks Bart! I don't like to swear, but sometimes it just pops out when I'm visiting the girls!

You're right, I do need to work on my kip. I understand the principles, just haven't practised it enough yet. As for the full extension, I had issues in the past while doing wide grip. I no longer use a wide grip, but I think my mind still expects the pain and stops just before I get there. A habit I will have to correct, especially for kipping. Maybe that's why I have such a hard time with kipping in the first place.

I may run Fran again on Saturday and I'll pay closer attention to the chins. Anyway, thanks again!

You will hammer Fran once you dial in your kip.

Nice work.

BTW, did you get the doc I forwarded a few weeks back?

Thanks Brad. I did receive the docs and I apologize I have not replied!! Holidays took hold and well, you know how it goes. Again, very sorry I did not thank you for the info. It was very helpful. It will be awhile before I'm ready, but never too early to start planning. :proud:

The good news = you're strong as a bull and have good endurance.

The bad news- your shoulder flexibility is lacking, preventing you from reaching full range of motion in the top of the thruster and bottom of the pullup.

Russ, you are correct that my shoulders have poor flexibility. But when you say full ROM at the top of the thruster do you mean elbows locked or bringing the bar into an OHS position? My OHS squat position is very poor, so when I extend, the bar is still in front. I've been doing the CFWU and working on bring my arms back to the proper position. It's improving ... slowly. I'll do a search on things to speed this up since I know OHS are going to roll around sooner or later.

What do you mean by OHS position? If you mean elbows locked with the weight directly overhead as opposed to in front, yes you're lacking that.

By OHS position I mean:
(deleted link)
I can lock my elbows no problem during military/push press/jerk, but the bar is not as far back as in the picture. It's something I'm working on, though.
