I want that sled. How'd you make it ?
The sled is from BFS, Bigger FAster STronger. Mark made his own...pic is above...and it is a lot wider and less likely to swing back and forth.
The big bag there is "Judy," a 150 pound bag of rock salt. A "Jonathan" is where you carry the bag and tow the sled at the same time. Jon then added an interesting finish.
This is my backyard gym. It comes fully air conditioned with perfect year round adaptions to the environment. Yesterday, with Mark we had a nice layer of snow to drag the sleds on, so we added 120 pounds on the sled and did long "Jonathans" until my obliques started to fill shattered.
What is a push-jerk? I couldn't find it in the message board or FAQ.
I gave my best attempt at explaining the 3 types of presses (of which the push jerk is one of them) in the Comments section of the November 13, 2003 WOD.
Click on my name below (Mike Minium) and you should link to the Comments from that day. My explanation is about halfway down.
Hope this helps,
That is some beautiful country... I need to get out of the city (San Diego) one of these days.
55#/8:15 (495) = .111
Push presses were feeling too good to be true this morning, they were just flying. I was figuring the overall score when I realized that I forgotten to add a pair of 10# plates to each side. I thought I was pushing 75# with no breaks! I think I need more sleep...
The first couple sets of pullups were fun, the last sets were a lot of breakdowns to finish.
no breaks ,95 pounds,10:56 .144lbs/sec
Used 115# for the push-jerks. Tried to pace myself at 1 round/minute but this didn't quite happen for rounds 4 and after. Had to break sets in both exercises for the last two rounds. Time was 9:27. Score = 115/567 = .203 #/sec.
#75/12:55 = .097 lb/sec.
Was alright. Breakdowns on pullups, none on presses. Need to raise press weight next time, hopefully increase pullup count.
135# with my 2" "Dinosaur" bar. Started out with my 136# keg, but quickly found after the first 6 reps no way.
So, I took a break and reset the timer. 16:26.
Did'nt have to do breakdowns on the pullups until the final round.( once again, I vary my grip from palms away to curl grip)
After almost a week's layoff, I feel great. I am finding I can push myself harder without the bile building in my throat so quickly.
Have a great weekend all.
The exercises section on the main page contain a video called Presses, which contains several types of presses (shoulder press, push press, push jerk) all in one video.
Only did 3 circuits; yesterday's WOD was entirely traumatic.
Did 12 reps instead of the 10 suggested in the WOD for push-jerks and chins. Don't really know why.
125#, 9:45, 125/585 = 0.214
First time I've done the WOD on the day it was posted in a while ...
75/865 = .086
Feeling like I'm off the back, comparatively.
Coach, if the stated objective is to eventually do the pull-up sets without breaks would it be better to:
A) do the set unbroken but assisted (on G-tron)
B) do the set unassisted but broken
p.s. This is a very interesting three-day block ...
135lbs. A little on the heavy side for me. The push-jerk quickly became a push press during the 3d round. I'll have to go lighter next time. 12:55 was the time. 135/12:55 = .174 pounds per sec.
This picture looks alot like me. I'm curious, the last couple of workouts- brutal neausea. Is this common? What causes it and is there anything I can do to avoid it?
With time most folks will have a decrease in nausea and the systemic failure they experience. Occasionally however a WOD will really get you! Moderating intensity is the only way to avoid Pukie
Almost completed the WOD without a break. Pullups went fine (first four sets with an added 15 lbs.) Presses went good until the last two set, had to rest to complete. Total time was around 12 min.
Here's my "New Fence" workout I just did. This is pure functionality at it's best. I wasn't even that sore afterwards - thanks to CrossFit.
High-pull piece of crap power auger through dirt with a ton of shale, in the pouring *#&^& rain while digging 20 holes
Clean 20, 80-pound, 8 ft., lodge poles with 6" diameter, then carry them over 3/4 acre on a hill, in the slick mud, hold upright and put cleanly in the holes, in the pouring @#$#@$ rain
Clean 20, 50-pound bags of quick-dry cement and carry them for 3/4 acre, in the *^$$^# rain, again in the slick mud
Skied for 8 hours. Did pushups in patrol shack
Didn't break any sets of either exercise.
85 lbs / 12:42. Yep...the pull-ups were the time killer.
Maybe buddy wouldn't throw up if he hadn't worn the toque.
150/1229=.122. I went 150 for the simple reason that I knew the pullups would kill me.
