Was going to run a timed 2-mile tomorrow anyway...easy to add some back extensions and situps!

Whats a good sub for a back extension. I have a small gym in my apartment complex and I dont think it has a back extention thing. Plus, ive never done them before(lol@myself).

Comment #6 - Posted by: fcfkruse at December 5, 2005 7:59 PM

Going to substitue the mile runs for 1500 meter row. looks good though.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Mike Durham at December 5, 2005 8:53 PM

fcfkruse,

Lay dorsal-side up on your kitchen table, counter, park bench, etc...anything that places you in a position of being able to do the extensions. For a majority of the xfit exercises, a machine "thing" is definitely NOT neccessary. Use your imagination! Good luck and have fun.

Back Extension Sub=what Marianne said or use a fitness ball with feet hooked under table/bench/railing etc..

Comment #9 - Posted by: GregEv at December 5, 2005 9:06 PM

This old guy isn't running tomorrow. Ankle is still sore from the box jump and burpees last wednesday. Any suggestions to sub for the running.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Dave McE at December 5, 2005 9:26 PM

22:01 - 1600 meter rows (healing toe still being a pain), situps anchored by two kettlebells, back extensions.

Situps unbroken, extensions broken at 50 then every 10 thereafter.

30 kipping pullups

9x5 20# clubbell swipes setted with 5 two handed 20# clubbell mills during the one minute break between sets.

3x3/3 62# kb cleans

2x2/2 72# kb cleans - so much hip drive on the first attempt that I smashed the handle of the kettlebell into my chin; going to be sporting a nice bruise there tomorrow. I really like the paint on the newer bells - the gloss finish allows it rotate more easily without tearing up my callouses as much as the matte finish. Can't wait to be able to do double 72# kb cleans.....

The back extensions were alot harder than expected, slowed my 2nd mile down dramatically.

Comment #13 - Posted by: DaveT at December 5, 2005 11:42 PM

As rx'd, 27:40. A little too much time spent during the wkout fixing things I forgot to set up - like wt on the smith bar when I started the GHD situps. (doh!)

100 situps (50 ghd, then 50 on floor w/ feet anchored - 20,20,10,20,15,15)

Time includes 1:30 of waiting around for a treadmill for the 2nd mile, so it was really about 23:00 of actual work.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Nick K at December 6, 2005 7:54 AM

I'm new and this is my second WOD( I did yesterdays which was awesome). I have two questions, first what is the reason for squatting on the ball? Second, if you're weak at an exercise should you practice it everyday or only on days it's in the WOD??(i.e. pushups) Crossfit rocks!!!

Dan,
At our place, we use the med. ball to mark the min. depth for a squat to count.

Comment #34 - Posted by: Jeff at December 6, 2005 8:08 AM

Yes, Cambodia, Sambor Prei Kup outside of Kampong Thom. 5 days of 6-8 hour rides on Cambodian "roads" is brutal on the body, but I held together okay, thanks CrossFit.

Don't worry Dan, I met with plenty of mud, even in the so-called dry season.

Matt and Mike smoked me on the run portion. I got lucky and caught the back extension station open and was able to do a 67/33 split on both SU and back ext. without having to wait.

Did anyone see where that goof Steve Ilg said on his web blog that he and his "master students" did Cross Fit on their recovery days? I think he smokes those overpriced herbs he peddles. He used to have something to offer but he has become this completely self absorbed guru type. Sorry about the rant.

2nd WoD today. Everything hurts. I like it.

Comment #67 - Posted by: cd at December 6, 2005 12:47 PM

At the gym:

I didn't want to do the treadmill so took a few loops around the block. I figured 4 loops around a city block and 1 mini-loop through the rooftop parking lot was about right. Includes a couple flights of stairs and a nice steep hill. Everything was fine for the sit-ups w/abmat type device. Chose to do all 100 before moving to Back extensions because the exercises were on nearly opposite ends of the gym. I didn't want to waste time transferring. Back extensions were tough and took me nearly nine minutes, and then I couldn't run for nearly 1/4 mile into the second run.

Runs done on a treadmill at a decent incline (harder than road running, i think).

All SUs and BEs done on a GHD, alternating SUs and BEs, usually in 10s.

OK, so I saw the Steve Ilg comment above and had to investigate.
Here's what started the Ilg comment:

COACH's OPINIONS ON CROSSFIT

Noble Coach Ilg,

Thank you for your counsel on the Blessed Beads. I
look forward to their arrival.

I am now living WF "out loud" as you say, and a friend
of mine said I was wasting my time and should start
doing Crossfit like he is. Well, I know ours is a
Higher path, so I'm not about to get off now. Out of
curiosity I did spend some time visiting the site and
WOW, I'm not sure if it's a movement, trend or cult.
I'm curious if you're aware of Crossfit and what your
feelings are regarding the craziness.

Much love and a long wolfy HOOOOOOOWL!

Your Humble Wolf Bro in Sherman Oaks

*
Dear Wolf Brother in Sherman Oaks,

Ilg's response was something along the lines of,
"we do Cross Fit on our recovery days," and then some bragging about running up mountains and practicing what he preaches.

Looks like a site dedicated to the sale of herbs and swampwater to me. Yoga is a good idea, but using it as the only way to fitness? I think Coach uses the term, "A fool's gambit" for things like that. And this wolf guy calls CF a cult??

28 minutes.


Normal situps anchored (unbroken set), GHD for BE(20,20,20,30,10).

This took alot longer than last time, but I ran on sand and used a GHD for the back extensions rather than doing them on the ground. I also was sharing the GHD with 5 other people so I had a long break in between sets.

Comment #104 - Posted by: Ray V. at December 6, 2005 4:33 PM

The mind control, or brainwashing, exerted by cults often take the form of at least several of the following elements:

A totalitarian control over the lifestyle and time of its members - Many cults tend to dictate exactly what its followers should read, eat, how and with whom they should spend their time, and even what they should do in off hours. This totalitarian control is necessary for the leaders to indoctrinate the followers in everything they do, and is also an attempt to separate them from anything not associated with the cult. This is why cults often live together in groups.

A charismatic, self-appointed leader with complete authority - Cult members are taught not to question the teachings, practices, or ideas of the Coach. Many cult leaders truly are charismatic people, and are able to influence people to believe them. It is common that a cult member is not told everything up front when joining the group, but that they are taught increasingly controlling ideas and teachings as they go. In the case of some of the more well-publicized cults that have come and gone, it is also common that the leader's ideas and demands evolve over time, becoming increasingly controlling and restrictive. One very clear identifying element dealing with the leader of a cult is that the leader will always focus the attention and veneration of the members upon himself or herself. At the heart of a cult usually lies a very self-centered and self-seeking person.

A focus on withholding truth from non-members - Many cults teach their followers to be completely open and truthful within the group, while at the same time they are encouraged to be secretive and evasive when questioned by people outside of the group. This is another form of mind control-instilling guilt in the members if they hold anything back within the group. The members are taught that outsiders wouldn't understand or that they would only make fun of the ideas and practices and requirements for living within the group. Only specially-commissioned members are appointed to recruit members from outside. New members are usually encouraged to keep silent or even lie, especially to their families and close friends.

The three elements listed above are very successful ways to create a group mentality, an us-against-them way of looking at things. This is essential for any cult that wants to keep its members. The more afraid of the outside world the members become, the more strongly and faithfully they will keep within the safe fold of the cult.

I did the running on a treadmill with 1% incline. I lost a little time on mile #2 due to a power flicker that caused the machine to reset. This is my first crossfit workout and I felt like I was on the verge of passing out for about 15 min afterwards. Good stuff.

Cool! I have always wanted to be in a cult, Tried Amway a few years back but it wasnt punishing enough for me! I particularly like the way I hover around the computer between 8:30pm and 10pm waiting for tomorrows WOD to be posted, even when I know it will be an off day> And those videos (especially lately) are ment to break down the male crossfitter in new ways (ways that make you feel funny, like when I used to climb the rope in gym class) It's all a plot to get us to live together (Considering seriously after seeing Eve's abs) And maybe I can send all of my savings to CFHQ to be spread throughout the crossfit nation, I am already praying on percieved fitness buffs, beckoning to join our strange and eclectic ways! LOL!

Comment #128 - Posted by: Joey at December 6, 2005 6:50 PM

27:45. ran on treadmill, about 8:30 pace. feet unanchored on sit ups. definitely felt surgical mesh for hernia repair pressing against hip rest during back extensions. kinda weird, but took mind off how pumped lower back was. quickly remembered pump during 2nd run. did sit ups and extensions in alternating sets of 25.

Comment #129 - Posted by: kevin o at December 6, 2005 6:53 PM

Total time: 31 minutes and some change...first mile was sub 6. I don't want to talk about the second mile (9:30ish). Feels good to be done though...

Comment #130 - Posted by: Jason B at December 6, 2005 6:59 PM

2nd WoD: as RXd - 36:57 Bit of an issue w/ the stopwatch, so I'm a touch off. Feel pretty good about the score as I expected to get somewhere between 40-45 minutes. Slowed somewhat in the transitions between back extention and situps by yesterdays WoD (arms still won't completely straighten), but mostly I need to push through the pain. Slowed down too much on the second mile run .

Oh, ran on a treadmill @ 1% grade, extensions on a bench w/knees anchored on a Smith Machine bar (thanks for the tip marianne and GregEv), unanchored situps.

Comment #131 - Posted by: Don Greenfield at December 6, 2005 7:03 PM

25:00*

Ran first mile on treadmill at 1% incline in about 7:30. Did the sit-ups and back extensions in sets of 25. Came back to find the treadmill wasn't available, so I pedalled frantically on a stationary bike with medium-high resistance for 7:30. Total time: 25:00. Unfortunately, it's cold and icy outside (Minneapolis), so running outside isn't an option. I'm tempted to try this one again when the gym is less crowded to see how I do.

Comment #136 - Posted by: davidjwood at December 6, 2005 7:53 PM

Chris, same here- 1st complete, as-prescribed WOD for me, and about 32 minutes. That's a victory in my book, just being able to do one of these things without wussing out and having to substitute/reduce weight, etc.

Mile 1: 8:14
SU/BX: 20/20-20/20-20/20-15/15 (start weeping)-15-15- (groaning and muttering under what's left of my breath)-10-10-sob
Mile 2: 9:54, first part about as gimpy as you can get- I must have looked very strange on the treadmill.

As others have posted, the second mile was murder for about the first 0.4... then things loosened up and I got back to a decent pace (for me) again. Actually felt pretty good by the end. If I hadn't had the back to worry about, it wouldn't have been so hard.

I have to point out that I hate back extensions with a passion. I honestly didn't think I could do 100 in one day, let alone in about the 16 minutes it took me... I'd read other peoples' comments and saw that they could do them, so I just resolved to do them, even if I was doing 1/1-1/1-1/1-collapse-1/1, etc. I suppose that's why I *need* to do them- they are hard for me.

Joey, I hear you man... as a cult this wouldn't be so bad. I saw the video from a couple of days ago with the squats/muscle-ups/hanging power cleans, and I was blown away by how fit those three are. I think I was most impressed by Nicole- she just would *not* quit. Seeing the videos really helps with the motivation. Eva's abs are a nice side benefit.

I am sore all over, and I love it. I went for a run yesterday at lunch (6 degrees above freezing, 10 below windchill), and couldn't believe what a difference a little more than a week of crossfit has made. I still pushed up the hills, but my recovery felt like it happened twice or three times as fast. Now if my lips would just un-chap themselves... :)

Had to do runds inside on the treadmill(3.0 incline). I hate having to do that, it takes for ever to get up to speed. Wasted alot of time trying to figure out another place to do the back-xtensions. Ended up doing Supermans(holding each for ::02) on the floor for a sub on the last 50. The first 50 were done a make shift GHD. Sit-ups were anchored, done military stile (hands on chest, elbows to knees). 75,10,10,5 Back is smoked!

Good work today. Our times spread from 20:38 to 22:27, but I had the advantage of having had a few days off. I felt guilty so I did the Tabata Something Else I had missed for dessert. Tabata score = 45, (pullups 7, pushups 10, situps 13, squats 15). Not a record winning performance, but I felt good and punished. All in all, today was a good day.

Pulled 2000m row to finish in 6:59.2 which I was very pleased with.

22:45 Terrible cramping in the lower back area during the run forced me to stop and stretch twice. Now I know how my wife feels once a month.

29 min 10 sec.
Great workout, determined to get a better time when prescribed again

Comment #187 - Posted by: Rebeca at December 7, 2005 4:00 PM

32 minutes
10 first mile
su and be by 10's
9:30 for second mile

That second mile hurt pretty bad after stressing the hip flexors so much, but did it faster than the first.

I warmed up first with 20 min on bike and 20 min on treadmill,,,and then the rec'd warm up posted on the site.

I tried the other day to just do the recommended warm up. It was my first crossfit work out in a very long time, and my shins really hurt on the sprint, hence the longer warm up today.

Used the ET because my knees were still sore from 2 days of powder skiing at Targhee. Anyone know how distance on an ET equates to distance running?

A couple of days behind on this one. Didn't have my watch so I didn't time it.

Precluded with a 500m sprint on Concept2 rower and then a leisurely five minute row.

1st run was in just over 6, situps and exts. were done in sets of 25 and last run was just over 9. Back is pretty sore.

Comment #213 - Posted by: John Bilenki at December 9, 2005 12:07 PM

2 minutes faster than last time. Monte, my back was also cramping hard during the second mile. Had to stop 3 times.

Comment #214 - Posted by: Alex McClung at December 9, 2005 1:14 PM

ran 1 mile on treadmill, no incline, about 6:30

mixed 5 sets each of 20 situps (feet not anchored, arms crossed on chest) and 20 back extensions

walked/ran 0.5 mile on treadmill, called it quits b/c lower back would not let go, didn't want to force through the discomfort and risk injury

about 25 min total

BWt = 156
