8/27/12 first day of school WOD.

Its the first day of my last year at ODU, time for a new 3RM shoulder press.

EDIT: Results of the 6AM class at Crossfit Rife. 

Shoulder Press, 3RM test: 95-115-120-125-135-140(f)-140PR


PRed at 140 for a set of 3 after a failed set. 1RM used to be 155, haven’t tested that in a while, but based on my 3 rep, it’s prolly up :)

Run 1 mile: 7:25 not a PR but whatever.

+10 GHD situps post run, for teh abzorz.

WOD Friday the 13th!!! 4/13/12

Should have dressed up as Jason or something for this workout, but didn’t figure out what the date was til now :(

Overhead Squat 5x5

135-135(3-2)-135-135-135

Some guy thought it would be cool to come use the end of the ONLY lifting platform to do step off lunges with a weighted vest and dumbbells. Normally, not a problem, but RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF MY WORKOUT!!?!?!?!

Didn’t even ask, just came up and did them. He’s lucky I didn’t drop the bar on his head.

AMRAP 12min

5 Front Squat 185lbs

10 pushups

20 double unders

Result: 4 rounds 5 squats.

Got this one from CrossFit Cookeville’s page. Great WOD, couldn’t do it RX though, 205 is too heavy for me to use in a WOD just yet, but Im getting there. Lost a lot of time when I failed a squat and had to pick the weight up. Squat rack safety bars are helpful, but impossible to clean heavy weight off of. No room for hip extension. Oh well. Good workout though.

WOD 4/12/12

Strict Press 1RM

135-145-150-155(PR 5-10lbs?)-160f-160f-160f

Tried to hold 135 for a few sets of 3, 135-135(1-f) <-how you know when it’s time to stop

Then, after a few minutes rest (<10)

21-15-9 rep rounds of:

115lb Shoulder to overhead

Kettlebell swings 1.5pood

Pullups

9:27

This was a hell of a grip workout. Good one though. Maybe could have rested a bit more between strength and WOD. Gotta make sure that happens more often.

WOD 4/10/12

Deadlift 1RM

For some odd reason, I didn’t write the weights down, or at least can’t find where I did. I know I got up to 385, and that’s where I failed, roughly 6-8 inches off the ground. 

I worked up slowly this time, as opposed to last time when I tried to make a 20lb jump off of a 5 lb new PR of 365lbs. I know that I pulled 370, and  I may have gotten 375, but I will claim only the 5lb PR and be conservative. 

Had an interesting encounter on the 10th though, A couple of really huge (6’5”) dudes were bench pressing while I was lifting, and they were kinda hefty, not chiseled but bigger guys. Anyway, they thought that what I was lifting was impressive enough to compliment me on the weight. They asked my body weight and were impressed that a 185lb guy of my height (6’2”) could lift that much, and didn’t think they could themselves. 

That made me feel really good about myself, and though my lifts arent where I want them to be, I know I’m on the right road to get there. Thanks random huge guys at the gym for your compliment!

370lbs PR

WOD 4/9/12

First workout post in 6 days. Been ill with the bronchitis. Hacking and all that. Still kinda crappy today, coughing a lot, but couldn’t rest anymore. Went to the gym and got some shit straight.

Back Squat 5x3

205-225-235(3 rep PR)-245(1-f)

I noticed that Im losing power in the bottom of my squat, so to stop the plateauing, I raised the safety bars a bit and started my squat at the bottom position. Resting the barbell on the safety bars and starting from there, going to a standing position.

From-the-bottom squats (Sets of 1)

225(f)-225(f)-205(f-f-1)-205-205

This REALLY Helped me see how to turn my hip flexors on and how to produce power from a fully closed hip position. Great neurological tax and got easier as I taught my body how to use those muscles.

"Grace"

  • Clean and Jerk 135 lbs

30 reps for time

4:35 - my partner beat me by 3 seconds… oh well, I’ll have to deal with a 1:28 PR!!!!

Previous: 6:07

Long-Ass Absence Catch up post

OK, So in the midst of my 17 Credit hours, 2 jobs, and such, I havent been on here much. Sorry guys. Here’s what I’ve been up to.

Gaining Weight Again!!!!!! -> Im at 187.6 now up from 185. Yuussssss.

Strength moving on up. Continuing to see gains in my lifts. 

Metcon/Bodyweight workouts getting harder -> Definitely need to focus some larger effort into my bodyweight workouts. Can’t be getting slow if I’m trying to get to the CrossFit Games!

3/27/12

Back Squat 135x10-155x10-175x10-185x10-225(5-2-1-2)

Got damn close to my 1RM, but for 5 consecutive reps! Ill take it.

3RFT

10 yoga ball situps (no GHD :()

20 pushups

30 1.5 pood Kettlebell swings

11:02

3/28/12

Push Press 5x5 -> 135-155 (2-2)-135-135-135

This felt pretty weak to me, considering I’ve had a 1RM Press of 155 for a little while now. :/

Row 2k 7:41 <- PR time! Prolly could do better :)

3/29/12 Rest

3/30/12 

Power Cleans 5x3 175-185-205-215-225(PR) Feeling much awesome about this.

21-15-9

Power Cleans 115lbs

Thrusters 115lbs

15:35 <- ouch. +5min from last time I did this. I think the issue was I didn’t rest enough between my PR Power Cleans. Oops.

3/31/12 Rest

4/1/12 Rest

4/2/12 Thrusters 7x3 135-155-165-175-185 (1-drop fail) Def tried to catch this PR lift before it went behind me and I dropped it, tweaked my shoulder a bit, but otherwise ok. Bodyweight Thruster PR for the win!

2008 Games WOD: 5RFT

275lb Deadlift 5 reps

10 Burpees

5:24 <- PR at prescribed weight. Last time was 5:09 at 225lbs, so Ill take only a 20 second slow down.

4/3/12   Bench Press 7x3 185-195(3rd rep sucked)-190-190-190-190-190(2-f)

I was hoping to get closer to my 1RM with this, but Ill take holding out at 190.

5RFT

45lb Overhead Lunges

21 Burpees

13:47  Straight from the main page, Ill take it, but it’s a little slow for my taste. Would have preferred something between 10-12 minutes. Will work harder.

That about does it folks, Ill be getting regular again after my physics test tomorrow!

If you complete the round of 21, go on to 24. If you complete 24, go on to 27, etc.

I made it through the 15 thrusters and got 1 pullup. I tore the shit out of my hands 2 min into the workout. Both hands. Bleeding. etc. Was quite upset about this cause I know I could have done much better than 76 reps, but oh well. There is always next year. Would have been a great workout if I had been able to go full throttle, but after tearing my hands, the bars got slick and I couldn&#8217;t really grip well.

The open is finished though, and Im pretty proud of how I did for my first time around.
After 5 workouts, I am 638th in the Mid-Atlantic Region with a score of 3827.
Worldwide, I am 7611th with a score of 46392. Later when I get creative Ill post some more about my experience and a more detailed breakdown of my scores. Awesome time, will definitely compete again next year, and hopefully, will make it to the Games.

WOD 3/21/12

Third day on. Feeling a little beat up. Didn’t get any PRs today :( Rest and Recovery imminent 

Press 1RM

135x3-145-155(f)-155(f)-150(f)-150(f) 

This seems to be a mix of mental block and third day on syndrome. Tired from pushups and pullups from Cindy yesterday, shot my shoulders. Will give it another go next week.

"Fran"

21-15-9

75lb Thrusters

Pullups

6:11

This was 2 seconds slower than my previous time back in January. This was mostly mental weakness. I could have done better, but let the workout get into my head. Will attempt again soon.
