April 2004 CrossFit Certification Seminar.
Well, I modified slightly. Last time I tried at 1.5BW, I tweaked my back...I think it's a little too heavy for me just yet. So, I went at 1.33BW.
I finished 8 rounds (using 225lbs.). Nailed the 7th pullup of the 8th round just as my watch went off.
Form was good, deadlift was a little bit more than I did last time. A decent WOD for me.
Used 255 on the deadlift at 168 lb body weight. Finished 8 sets but had broken sets on the last 2 sets of deadlifts. Also lost a bit of skin on my hands as well as a result of grip giving out which was the limiting factor in this WOD for me.
bw 177, deadlift 265. Grip toasted by the end of session.
150 bwt,225 dlifts, 7 pullups;9 and 1/2 rounds. Does any one know when we last experienced this specific agony? Thanks
I completed 7 rounds at 315lbs. for the deadlift.
After the the third set I was forced to do breakdowns on the pullups in 5-2. This was a hard one and I know that I will be feeling it tomorrow.
I'm a newbie to the WOD - today is only my 3rd. How do you warm up for these intense workouts - or don't you?
Andy, I think it's a bit of "personal preference" regarding warmups. For example...today I worked on the elliptical trainer for about 10 minutes first, then did some very light deadlifts (like 135lbs.), then stretched my legs and lower back. After that I was good to go.
I guess my advice (if it means anything) would be to warm up to your satisfaction...so that you're confident you're ready to work.
Deadlift (with Trap Bar) 275
6 sets with about 50 seconds to spare so I just stopped there. Will try to get at least 7 sets next time.
I just completed - as you suggested - 10 min eliptical - didn't stretch enough. Not strong yet in the olympic lifts - did 9 sets at 125 lbs (75% bodyweight of 160) with 7 pull ups each time - different grip on each set of pullups. I'm having a very hard time typing my arms are so pumped up right now! AWESOME!
Yeah, my forearms were fried after this workout. I made it through without breaking up the sets...but I was laughing (sick reaction, I know) when on the 7th pullup of each set my grip was failing...to the point that I probably couldn't have gotten an 8th or 9th rep.
bwt 114; trap bar deads @ 170. 11 rounds, no breaks. Variety grips on the pullups.
Reduced the weight to 3/4 bw (135 lb. weight)
4 rounds -- got started on the pullups for a 5th. Broke all the sets of pullups.
Decided I could skip my anticipated grip workout...practiced hollow rocks instead.
Body Weight 180
Dead Lift 150 (83% of BW)
First 2 round of Pull-ups - 7 reps, following sets 4+3
hadn't posted in a long time but have still been doing crossfit
modified somewhat b/c it was 10pm and almost didn't feel like doing it, its hard to get off of the couch and go downstairs to do crossfit, anyway,
5 rounds for time
5 ring pullups
anyone have any thoughts on what the best time to workout is - it just seems like at night is the only time i can find - 2 kids a wife a job eats up a lot of my time :)
by the way, messed up and did 1.59 BW on deadlifts
bw = 185#
Gene and Paresh
bw = 175
deadlift = 265
rnds = 8
315# trap-bar deadlifts (stood on a 45# plate to increase the length of the pull).
Used 95# for the deadlifts. 20# vest worn for both exercises. Started breaking sets of pull-ups with the 8th round. Got through the deadlifts of round 16 with 5 seconds to spare. Grip is fried.
First time doing deads without straps, it was not fun going, heh.
all broken sets on the pullups, first two or three sets were straight through for deads then broken after that
Used 315lbs for first 3 rounds then had to drop down to 285lbs.
Oops, I did 12 reps for all my pull ups. My hands are raw now!
Time 17:32 (was aiming for a round every 2 minute)
bw = 196 lbs
5 rounds with deadlift 310 lbs and pullups w bw + 22 lbs
then had to reduce to dl 270 lbs and pullups bw another 3 rounds
This was a killer!
Thanks Ed! Somehow I'm sure that Kelly would have done about 14 rounds, which inspired me to at least get into the double digits.
8 rounds with 250lbs (1.3x bw). Grip was toasted and hands are blistered...lovin' it!
5 rounds with 345 (230 bodyweight). I was hoping to get 7 rounds, but after the first rep I knew it wasn't going to happen. I wasn't feeling too perky, so I thought briefly about quiting, but I just don't do that. I told myself: "Quit if you want, you $%#@ $@#%, but post the damn result, even if it's 2 rounds. Pride got me to five. I tore my hands to hell. Overall a tough workout. I've been throwing a lot, so my back is tired.
6 rounds with about 1:15 left, modified.
Since I've never approached BW (195), I started with my PR: 135. Managed to stick with it, most sets 4/3. Am slowly learning not to engage my lower back, but not always successful - will be sore tomorrow. Got some nice scrapes on my shins.
PUs typically 3/3/2.
Reduced DL to 130 lbs (160 bw) unbroken sets
Pullups unbroken but w/slight cheating with a lil push of the toe off the floor to help with the higher reps.
6 rounds with 30 secs to spare.
