Today will be interesting. I am still really sore from all those squats on Friday. I almost fell down the stairs three times yesterday. Lifetime, how are your legs from that?
Wow, am I struggling or crying? lol
Tim – the soreness was brutal. It’s a little bit better today, but the last two days have been tough. It the closest I’ve felt to 400m of lunges!
Work on narrowing stance, knees were coming in on the way up rather than staying in line.
75 – 95 -115- 135- 145
Joey – is that your “I love muscle-ups” face? I think I have that same expression when I do burpees :)
Working on low bar form and sinking nice and low in squat.
If I haven’t mentioned it, Jill R is hardcore. On a workout last week she tore her hand. She wasn’t like “Oh Sh*^! Look at my hand!” She said, “You got some scissors cause it tears worse if I pull it”. It was nasty too! About 1 1/2″ long x 1″ wide with a strip hanging on in the middle. I should have took a picture to do it justice. What you got on that Princess Hands?
For all you that have the itch to run…you are welcome to do a regular Michael today. Just wanted to put that out there. I’m not saying it will necessarily be tomorrow’s WOD but there’s a strong possiblity…
Way to go JOE!!
How can you NOT have Michael tomorrow? This is great running weather. (Easy for me to say after finishing a 3 mile treadmill run just now – weak – but I did add 100 squats, 50 push-ups, hand-stand work and sit-ups). I’d be all over Michael tomorrow!
If given the option, I’d rather do Michael tonight than tomorrow. And Rudy – you sayin’ I’m not hardcore because I bitched about my dude hand? Thems fightin’ words!!
DOn’t worry Erin, I crab all the time, even when not working out.
Ow look what the jump rope did to me!!
But Jill I do admire the hardcore.
Erin you gonna be at the 6 so you can run with me:) (and crab with me on the run on how its actually NOT that warm)
Mandie – aww you’ve got my back! Unfortunately, I can’t make the 6, so looks like I’ll be running solo at 7pm.
Kidding aside – I was there when Jill ripped and didn’t even know it until I saw her hand taped as she was leaving. She is hardcore :)
Eva: 5 Rounds
30 kettlebell swings
Used 1 pood kettlebell
Around 52 minutes
I have done this WOD once before and forgot how painful it is, wow! Was able to see a video of myself and really need to work on my kipping and kettlebell form.
man alison they are not letting your break be an easy one out there eh? i see they play hardball out in the great northwest. you’ll be even more of a killer whence you come back. good work
Thanks Alex! CrossFit Eugene has definitely been picking some killer WOD’s. Still haven’t been able to tackle those double-unders yet though=)
Jill, I am impressed with your hardcoreness=)
Speaking of ripped hands..I have some words of advice for those that may want to try the liquid band-aids. DO NOT put liquid band-aids on an open rip!! I tried it and it felt like I had dumped acid on my hands. However, it works well when there is no open wounds.
freddie’s revenge: 6:17
this was rough. burpees. killed. me.
155,155,135,145,145 – keep bar planted below shoulders, dig in heals, keep chest straight up, ankles straight.
really worked on form today…didnt go for weight. used the video camera and caught some of my weaknesses. need to push through the heels and point my chest straight out…use less of my back to lift the weight.
135, 155, 175, 185, 195, 200(pr)
Good depth, and I didn’t use my back like I had been (I think). This is about the only thing I feel good about my form on consistantly . . .
115, 125, 135, 145. Then switched to a narrow stance and worked on form for 3 sets at 115 and 1 set 125. Went as low as possible.
I was spent after my 275 set. Nutrition has been really bad since Wednesday, but I did thoroughly enjoy it. Expectations were not too high today coming into the workout. The Do-Wins made a huge difference on stabilization.
Alison, I feel your pain. I made the same horrible mistake once. Poured liquid all over an open tear. Screamed like a 2 year old. I’ll take salt in the wound anyday before liquid band aid again.
Did you make your muscle-up face Lifetime?
Also, swimming laps in a pool filled with chemicals not great for the rips.
It was far worse than the muscle up face. It was the Lifetime face. Let’s hope no one ever has to see that one…
Worked on (40)GHD situps, hand stands against wall and pushing away from wall and paralette “L” sits. (Still fighting upper respiratory/sinus infection)Easing back into some semblance of a workout:(
95-115-135-155-165 (failed on 3rd rep)
135/185/205/225/245 (failed on 3rd rep)
250#-270#-290#-310# x 2 sets of 5.
This actually was in the context of my strength wod today so this wasn’t a max effort at 5 reps but pretty close. first try w/the weightlifting shoes on back squats and they do help keep the heels flat and weight centered. good purchase
135 155 175 195 215
75, 85, 100, 115 (last 2 reps needed to be lower), 120 (last 1 rep needed to be lower). Need flat shoes.
135, 155, 185, 205, 215
10 pounds heavier and my form was much better. My knees stayed where they should be. It felt good. Thanks for the help Eric!
Did this in the gym at my place on a smith machine, not free weight so didn’t have the balance factor.
