2011 CrossFit Games

CrossFit geeks rejoice! The Games are about to begin. If you don't know the CrossFit Games are the "Olympics of Exercise". Designed to find the fittest man and woman on the face of the planet.

I'm still not sure why I'm so stoked about the Games. I mean really—it's just people exercising for God's sake. I guess part of it has to do with the fact that I know how hard these athletes have to work to complete their task. The other part of it must have something to do with that picture of Camille.

Whatever it is it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters right now is 3...2...1...GO!

Switched the deadlift type today to focus more on the hamstrings. Haven't done these in a very long time so I was conservative when choosing a weight. Could have added 20# to each set.

Time: 17:05

Scaled weight to 95#. Had to stop OHS after the first couple reps to put on wrist wraps. Double unders were broken all over using the shitty Nike rope. Note to self: use wraps next time and buy a new rope.

Extremely frustrating day. Failed on 3RM attempt. Heat and humidity were brutal (lost 1lb of water weight in sweat). Mentally I was off of my game and couldn't get it together.

110714 Alottatabata

Another session at PT tonight. Chris put me through a tabata workout to test the calf. This is what he came up with.

Tabata: 8 rounds 20 sec. work/ 10 sec. rest. 2 min rest between exercises

Jumping squats on Bosu ball
Plyo push-ups
Mary Catherines
Double unders

I didn't keep track of my score. The objective was to get through the workout without aggravating the calf and that objective was achieved. Totally blown out at the end of this one.

No WOD today. Did an one at PT on Monday on my off-day and am feeling a little run-down. It's been 6 days in a row with no rest with another PT WOD scheduled for tomorrow. Torn calf is healing up really well though. I was able to run, double under and do bosu ball jumps (testing out a box tomorrow) with no pain.

Rolled my own WOD today. I've been wanting to integrate these into my training and finally got around to it. It was tough physically but the hit to the CNS was significant.

Couldn't get it together on the last set of front squats. Tired and a loss of a few pounds could have contributed.

For the WOD I didn't refer to my previous results (best @ 40) and wound up doing less. Very disappointing day.

110706 L-rope climbs, HSPUs, One legged squats

CFSB C2 w2d2

Buy in:
Burgener warm-up x 2

Strength:
Deadlift 3 x 3
225-275-305(PR!)
Lift done sumo-style

HR set deadlift (sumo) 15=>20 @ 195#
Score: 16

WOD:
5 rounds for time of:
1 15' L-rope climb
5 Parallete HSPUs
10 45# one-legged overhead squats
Time: 16:34

Scaling notes:
First rope climb done as L for first 5' then form broke but continued up rope using hands only. The rest of the reps were done using spanish-wrap technique.
Didn't have paralletes so HSPUs were done as normal.
Can barely do unweighted pistols so these were done without weight.

First time doing deadlifts sumo-style. Felt more tension in the hamstrings and much easier on the lower back. Really happy with my pulls today. Just 15# to go to reach my goal of 320# x 3.
