2008 Crossfit Game WOD 3

I did this WOD on 10/23/2010 in 2:59. I was happy with my time then but new I could do better. I went to the class today to find out that this was the WOD! Before the WOD Id did:

Tabata Sprints
12% Incline
9 MPH

Then the WOD:

5 Rds

5 Deadlift 275#
10 burpees

My Time:
2:25

I was pumped when I saw the time but I was not sure how. I knew I was going fast but this is the fastest time on this WOD that I have seen....and again I know I can go faster. I will continue to get better and work to be the best!

Again Faster WOD 12...II

So I did this already....but knew to have a chance to win the comp I would probably have to do it again....and that would not guarantee anything. Did the WOD last week...8 Rds + 22 Reps:

Again Faster WOD 12

6 HSPU
8 Over box Jumps 24'
10 DB Hang Clean 40#

9 Rds + 18 Reps

Felt much better about this performance and hope it is enough to hold up for a win!

50 Burpees

You Challenge

So I created you challenge for people to challenge each other. So far i have......1 challenge.....no takers.......but me. i did the challenge today to post and let people see it:

25 burpees (Hand release
-then-
6 rds
5 Clean and jerks 155#
10 push ups (Hand release)
-then-
25 burpees (Hand release)

2 Minutes to get 1 rep Max Clean and jerk

My Time:
10:15

Clean and Jerk:
265#

Have no idea where to gage this but happy with my time.

Now was time for the class. We started with lateral run Death by 10. i finished with 14. Then we jumped into 1 minute of Max jumping Pull ups - 21. Still more before the WOD.......Turkish Get ups. I have not done these in a very long time. I got 100# DB and a 95# BB.....Failed at 115# BB. I will work on this.

The WOD was a good one:

4 Minutes Max Reps:

Calorie Row 84
Back Squat 45# 109
Push up (45# plates) 71
DB Snatch 70

Total Reps
334

This one was good....I felt good on the row and did not rest once on the squats.....the push ups and snatches on the other hand got me! Rough but a good one!

Thinking of retrying the Again Faster WOD again tomorrow to try and reach 10 Rds!!

Competition January 15th

So I have been preparing for the Crossfit Games and in this preparation I have been allowed the opportunity to train for a competition in Indianapolis on January 15th at a friends Box. Should be awesome. I just received the movements and they look like they will be perfect for a good competition. prep work:

Front Squat 3 Rep

135# x 3
185# x 3
205# x 3
225# x 3
245# x 3
245# x 3
265# x 3
275# x 3

Did not go as heavy as I could, but felt this was a smart weight to end at. Then through together a WOD with my biggest weakness! GHD's:

3 Rds

12 GHD's
250 M Row
10 Toes 2 Bar

My time:
8:05

GHD's do me in every time. Even this many....and for some reason I feel like I am going to throw up throughout them. I need to keep programming them in at least once or twice a week. After I did a regular in my routine now:

Tabata Sprints
12 % Incline
9 MPH

Hurt....like normal!

Getting Better

I always try to get better. It is my goal to be the best....I feel I am know where near being the best but every thing I do brings me a step closer or a step farther away. I am doing the best I can to trudge forward. I have been telling myself January 1 is go time. All out dedication and training for the games to be the best. I want to go to California....but I know there are many more out there deserving and working there butts off to go. I know they have many motto's and quotes to get people motivated....like work harder then your opponent....or other type quotes. I do not have a quote....I am going to train to be the best and do the things I hate! That will make me better:

Max Height Box Jump:

My Height:
52 inches (FAILED 53.5 inches)

Then:

DT 155#

12 Deadlift
9 Hang Power CLean
6 Push Jerk

My Time:
6:30

I came back to the gym to train Broc and then hit some more:

30-20-10

Hang Clean 95#
Wall ball

My Time:
3:46 (Did this 11/17 in 4:06)

Then something I have never done before and need a lot of work with:

30 MU's for time:

My Time:
8:45

Not at all what I wanted but I have a bench mark now to get better off of. Then I stole something I saw off of OPT's blog:

1 Heavy Thruster every :30 for 10 Minutes:

205# x 2
215# x 8
205# x 8
215# x 2

This was horrible and I was moaning and groaning. I tried to quit at 5 minutes and dropped the bar.....but I forced myself to clean it back up and keep going.....why.....because I do not like it and I need to get better that's why!

Tabata Sprints Suck

Why are these so hard! I have been doing them with the hopes of it getting easier and me beginning to be able to increase reps....but this is enough and it is only last 4 minutes long! When will it get easier!

I am not sure if it will but I do know I will continue to do it because it gases me!

Before I did the sprints i played around with MU's:

4 mu's on the minute:
4 / 4 / 3 / 3 / 3 / 3 (could not get 4 on the last 4 minutes)

I am going to work up to being able to do 4 for 10 minutes!

3 Days in a row....almost completely off...not fun!

We...sometimes you do not always get to do what you want. Case in point today. I had planned to have a good training weekend, which has turned into a binge eating bagel day. I am working today for 15 hours so it has turned into an off day. Yesterday I did get some work in:

Did not feel very productive but it was something. I am planning to do the competition workouts from the Midwest Hopper going on today. Other then that I did burpees in the back office last night. I plan on doing that again today. I will be off at 9:30PM tonight and I got in at 7:40AM. The next two days will be good training days!

You Challenge

Took off today for some rest. But did play around with rope climbs, not enough to do some damage and also some hammer slams on the tire. Then:

Tabata Sprints

9 MPH
12% Incline

This hurts every time and takes 4 Minutes! I love it! That's it, other then my burpees to come. I am wondering how the front of my calves hurt so much from yesterday...I am thinking it had to be from the GHD's. Back to work tomorrow.

On a side note....I am starting a challenge site on Facebook for competition and fun called You Challenge...Go on and check it out!

FRAN (My first WOD)

So.....today we did Fran at the box, a friend that I love to hate. I like hearing of the WOD and how well people can do.....but I hate performing it. So when i saw this was on the agenda it was bittersweet. First because I had just made a goal to get sub 2:15 by my birthday.....Feb. 13, Second was I fear the pain! Hear goes the day:

Farmer Walk Comp with 90# DB:

5 minutes with a partner about 30 ft down and 30 ft back. I believe I did it 8 times.

Front Squat:

135# x 5
185# x 3

1 through 10

I had done a WOD a few months back that I saw on the Journal. Jason Khalipa and Chris Spealler went against each other on the WOD. i did it and was beat by both of them. I decided to try it again......and again was beat by both of them:

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10
Clean & jerk 155#
1 Rd Cindy

My Time:
15:58 (Khalipa 14:15 and Spealler crushed that)

I had the classes do this workout and it was a doozy. After the WOD I had everyone do Max OHS and Max Back Squat 1 minute rest between each:

My Score:
OHS 95#:
35

1 Minute Rest

Back Squat 95#:
40

I was hoping for more Back Squats but that just was not happening. After the squats I did Tabata Sprints:

12 Incline
9 MPH

I have these scheduled 3 times a week for my sprinting. They are rough and I love it.

On a side note my wife did over 140 Back Squats with 65#.....there is no way I could have done that great job!!

I got home and a couple hours later I did Tabata Deadlifts with 315#:

5 / 5 / 2 / 1 / 2 / 1 / 1 / 2 = 19

The Disco

I woke up this morning and I was pretty sore.......then I thought.....my sister is probably wrecked!

I had a text at about mid night from Broc that he wanted to train in the morning at 7:30.....problem was it was past Midnight. It was a go though and I was up and out and ready to do some work after I trained him. I started with heavy lifting:

Power Snatch

135# x 2
155# x 2
175# x 2
185# x 2
185# x 1
195# x 1
205# x 1
215# x 1 (FAILED)

Then went to Power Clean

215# x 1
225# x 1
235# x 1
245# x 1
255# x 1
265# x 1

Stopped there because I was fatigued and new I still had the 9:00 AM WOD to do:

We started class with AMRAP Air Squats 2 Minutes - Men vs Women:

I did 115 reps. Women ended up winning by 3 reps. They did good, but they should have never won!

Then was the WOD....Crossfit Disco:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Power Clean 75% Body weight (used 135#)
Pull ups

6:05

I thought this WOD would be very easy, but it hurt. I had to break up some of the pull ups in the mid sets because my biceps were hurting so bad. I think it was the combination of the lifts that did it.

was at work late so only did 25 burpees in the with no time.

Filthy Fifty (PR)

Today was awesome.....my sister was in town....I was going to get to work out with her and my wife.....and.........we did Filthy Fifty! Last time i did Filthy 50 I went against Brandon and I was shooting to beat a friend of mine who had a time of 17:22.

Before I tell yo how I did....my sister and wife did awesome. These type of WODs are brutal and for anyone to finish them is something to be said about that person......so great job to you and everyone in the classes.

As for myself, the Main Site had Austin Malleolo finishing the WOD in 16:11.....which meant I needed faster! So the original goal of beating 17:22 changed to beating 16:11:

Filthy Fifty

50 Box Jumps
50 Jumping Pull ups
50 KB Swings
50 Walking Lunges
50 K2E
50 Push Press Oly bar (45#)
50 Back Extensions
50 Wall Balls 20#
50 Burpees (My 50 for the day)
50 DU's

My 9/28/2010 Time:
18:20

My Time Today:
15:30 (PR)

Very excited about my time!!!! This WOD was rough but I remember it being much worse last time.

When i got home Deadlifted

I asked Brandon the other day if he noticed a difference in my training....whether I was getting better....he asked if I had been PR'ing....I said yes....he said well then yes! And it made sense....as long as I am always getting better then my training is going well. it is when i stop PR'ing and getting better that I need to change my training.

Great Day.....and got a little better today!

BB Overhead Walk

Today was a good day in the gym. Last night I thought of a workout that would get to some people.....and did it ever. Almost every ones face during the WOD made me think they all wanted to quit Crossfit. After seeing their agony I new I had to give it a go:

Warm up:

Row 500 M

WOD

5 Rds:

30 Ft BB Overhead Walk 95#
10 Thrusters 95#
30 Ft BB Overhead Walk 95#
10 Back Squat 95#

My Time:
7:47

This hurt and I will have to remember it. The 30ft walk was down and back and it made the Thrusters brutal on the shoulders. Burpees tonight......and I am planning on Rowing 2000M again to lower my time for the competition.

On another note my sister is flying in from Florida today so I am excited to see her. It had been over a year since I have seen her....very excited and should be a lot of fun!!

Shoulder Press PR

I do not do to many workouts with the style of tabata.......:20 sec on - :10 sec off: 8 Rds. I got to the gym in the morning and started off with:

Tabata Sprints:

12% Incline
9 MGH

This hurts your hammies and butt.....can see a benefit if I keep this up. Then the class got ready to start and we did 1000 M Row. We did not have enough rowers so I did:

100 SDHP w/45# Oly bar

This is the equivalent to a 1000M Row in Crossfit standards. I did not time myself on the exercise. After that we did some rough Band Sprints.

We had a partner and ran with a green band around us while the other person held resistance. When we reached the end of the gym we ran backwards to the beginning.....cycling through this 6 times......I demonstrated so I did 7.....weak in the legs after this.

We then took a break from the legs and did:

1 Rep Mac Shoulder Press:

135# x 1
165# x 1
175# x 1 (PR)
185# x 1 (PR)

It felt good to get 185# up. I hit a point halfway up where I was not sure if I would finish the lift. Fortunately i had someone yell at me which gave me the extra umff I needed.

When everyone was done we had 1 last thing on the agenda. More Tabatas....but this time it was with Deadlifts. I was planning to use the Main Site for the Deadlifting the other day but this was something I had never done before:

Tabata Deadlifts 315#

5/5/5/4/3/2/2/2

By set 5 I started losing feeling in my legs.....haha......this was rough.....especially after the band sprints. I will keep this type of training in my back pocket. Great day, Burpees tonight!

Arizona Competition

I was online yesterday and saw that a competition took place over the weekend at Crossfit Flagstaff in Arizona. Wish I could have gone.....but I couldn't.....so I pulled out my handy dandy notebook and wrote down the WODs, which I used one today:

10 Min AMRAP:

8 Chest 2 Bar Pull ups
6 Box Jumps 36"
4 Front Squat from the Ground 165#

Then 2 Minute Rest

1 Min AMRAP

Ground to Overhead 165#

My Score:

followed by Front Squat:

135# x 5
185# x 5
225# x 5

Power Snatch 115#
Wall Ball 20#
K2E

My Time:

I was hoping for sub 14.....so I was happy with my time. This was good for me because after being sick I have been down about how my fitness was going to be when I was healthy again. Nice to know that I can still go after a WOD. After the WOD I did:

Tabata Sprints (on a treadmill)

12 Incline
9 Speed

This burned the buttocks and the Hammies like no other! Going to hope for a good Main Site WOD to hit hard tomorrow and then try to throw a strength and another WOD in the mix. Soon I will hitting my 50 Burpees.

Annie

Today I went in the gym hoping for two things.......to feel good enough for multiple WOD's.....and a good WOD for class....

We started with Hang Clean 3 Rep Max:

135# x 3
185# x 3
205# x 3
225# x 3
245# x 3
255# x 3 (FAILED 3rd Rep)
255# x 3 (FAILED 3rd Rep)

I was not thrilled about Failing on 255#, but I new I was still recovering so accepted it. After the Hang Cleans we had an Awesome WOD! One that I had done once before almost 4 months ago.....long time coming.....last time I did it I was happy with my time:

Annie:

50-40-30-20-10
DU's / Sit ups

8/13/2010 Time: 7:03
My Time Today : 5:34

PR!....always good when that happens. I felt good because my DU's were on.....sit ups was where my speed was lacking, but I can work on that. After the DU's I let Brandon make up a WOD for me:

10 Rds (wearing a 20# vest):

7 Dips
7 Back Extensions

My Time:
5:32

Then DL work......which I love to hate......had a friend in the gym join me:

10 Rds (1 Rd a minute)

5 DL's w/ 275#

On the 11th Min AMRAP:

10 Reps

I was able to get 10 reps with 275# after the workout. I quit early but was happy with that.

At night:
50 burpees

My Time:
1:49

All in all it was the first day I felt well enough to do multiple things and that made me happy!

Morning No More

My alarm went off and I quickly turned it off checking the time......4:45AM......a few minutes to lay here and then I will get up to make my smoothie.......a quick twitch and I was up again.......spinning to look at the clock........5:35......the class started at 5:30.........into the basement I guess.

What a morning.....I went to the basement coughing and came up with a WOD that changed after the first Rd because I could hardly catch my breath......I hope it is the sickness still because I suck!!!! The WOD:

3Rds

10 Deadlift 225#
12 HSPU
14 Pistols

5:37

I was originally going to do 5 Rds but that didn't happen. I am frustrated about everything going on with my body and my mind. Physically I am drained from being sick and it is paying a toll on my mental state. Until my wife said something to me.........."it doesn't help you physically to bring yourself down mentally".....She was right.....not that a switch had been turned off, but I understood. I was going to use this as motivation. Kick my butt once I was healthy.....get even better.

That night after work:

Hang Clean

135# x 3
185# x 3
205# x 3
215# x 3
225# x 3

Did not drop the weight after reps.

Then 50 Burpees:

My Time:
1:44

November 8th 2010 to Today + Sickness = BAD

I am not sure exactly how sickness can effect a person physically and more importantly.....in their training. I wonder this because I am not 100% healthy yet but felt it was time to hit a WOD since it has been 3 days without working out. I decided to do a WOD I thought would not kill me but would be tough enough to see where I am........

I did a WOD from November 8th 2010:

3 Rds

30 KB Swings 1.5 Pood
25 Wall Balls
20 Pull ups

9:18 (November 8th)

10:39 (Today)

Lets just say that I am not happy with that performance.....so I am going to do this WOD again on 12/14/2010 with a goal of beating the first time. I am assuming that I will not have gotten significantly better in two weeks and I should be healthy by this point.......that being said I am hoping for the best and knowing that I may not get the best.

On another note......my 50 Burpees in 50 days stopped......I will be picking this back up today and starting over. I want to go 50 straight day and that just ended with me getting sick.

50 Burpees

My Time:
1:45
