Re: Sharknado

for todays workout, after i played around with front squat stances and such, i did a straight squat burnout workout. i would do as many front squats as i could, rack it, do as many back squats as i could, rack it, strip a weight off each side while resting 1 minute, then repeat, the goal being to hit more reps with each drop in weight. i do not recommend this as it was BRUTAL!

weights used were 315, 275, 225, 185, 135, 95

i am sure i will pay for this tomorrow.

Re: Sharknado

Yep, that is going to be hell the next few days.


In other news, I took another big step in my conditioning. 10 DB R/L Pwr Sn (started with Sq but knees didn't like it) of 20-30-40-50. Last reps of 50 I could tell was about my limit as I barely could do them consecutive. I had some thoughts of trying to do singles to 90 but called it.

Lay off squats, knees feel better. Try to do squats after laying off squats, knees feel tight. Grr. Hit 330 but wasn't feeling up to doing 300 for 5x3 and moved on to OHP/Pendlay row.

Hands feel chewed up from doing Sn triples after a week off.

Anyone else think Klokov's wife got implants after her track career was over?

Maybe your levers being like that help explain why you are so strong? I'd imagine being able to do front squats without knees forward would be a lot stronger position - you are able to engage more of the backs of your legs/glutes. I wasn't trying to be insulting of you in the front squat thread, I just really haven't seen anybody be able to front squat without knees breaking forward.

I know you know lifting so take this with a grain if salt, but how is your calf ankle flexibility? If that is bad thin it could keep you from knees forward.

Re: Sharknado

So, I went to open gym at my CF affiliate yesterday, and several people were asking me to watch/critique their snatch (like I'm some kind of expert from being on a weightlifting team for three weeks )... I can diagnose and cue for a lot of the lift, but one problem nearly everybody there had was their hips going straight up first thing on the first pull (there was one coach we had that taught the lifts in a way that lent itself to that error), and I couldn't figure out a cue for that, though I tried a bunch of different things.

Any ideas?

Re: Sharknado

Well guys I've decided to switch focus on my training. My trainer helped me come to the decision actually because I asked him for advice. When I joined this new crossfit affiliate about 9 months ago I put on some size/strength for a couple reasons. First, I was training more consistently and getting more sleep than I had in a while. Secondly, because this gym focuses a lot on strength. But after I got a lot of my numbers up I noticed a big plateau over the last couple months and even a decline in strength on certain things like squats.

What I've been doing is using heavy weights in our WODs and pretty much wiping out a ton of my energy doing too much cardio. The workouts would take me longer than a lot of other people because I would never scale, which kind of misses the point. So i'm going to be focusing primarily on strength - making sure to get all my lifting sets in every week and then some. I'm also planning to squat heavy twice a week and probably doing box squats or front squats a third time. Ready to hit that 315 squat! I'll keep the metcons short and fast

I was thinking if your knees don't go past your toes isn't that a good thing?

I might have to upload a snatch video for your expert analysis now

but seriously I might do that.

Re: Sharknado

N/m after more analysis, I think she just put some body fat on.
