my bumper plates just came in yesterday right in time for this workout. if only i can rig something together to make temp. rack...

Comment #2 - Posted by: Phong at May 16, 2007 7:58 PM

The "...perfect rack...position" annotation positively slayed me...

Comment #3 - Posted by: Mrnatural76 at May 16, 2007 8:08 PM

Phong,

Cinder blocks are really cheap. Stack em up and rack away. Carve out grooves in the center of the blocks so the bar doesn't roll off when you're not holding it.

This is gonna feel good tomorrow after all the body weight exercises today!

Comment #5 - Posted by: Corey at May 16, 2007 8:19 PM

Loved the video....Question. During B's last set, second rep., it says there was a slight "jerk" in his motion. I could detect a slight hitch, but no real forward inclination. What was the "jerk?" i.e. What "exactly" was the incorrect motion/movement? Thanks...just trying to learn as much as possible.

Comment #6 - Posted by: B.M. at May 16, 2007 8:28 PM

Nice video, and I have to say I love this exercise. Can't wait till tomorrow to tackle it and see what the outcome is for me.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Jeff B. at May 16, 2007 8:49 PM

#7 B.M., the comment was referring to the slightly "Push Jerk" finish of that particular rep. vs. the rx'd "Push Press".

Comment #8 - Posted by: Brett_nyc at May 16, 2007 8:55 PM

#7 B.M.--

I think they mean that on that rep he just slightly ducks/pulls himself under the bar. i.e. Don't allow yourself make it any easier by bending your knees to catch the bar in a squat, no matter how slight. At least I think that's what they are getting at??

Comment #11 - Posted by: Matt Carroll at May 16, 2007 8:56 PM

#7 I think that the Jerk they're referring to is that his feet actually come off the floor a bit. I'm not qualified to really comment, but that's just the way it looks from my angle.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Derek at May 16, 2007 8:58 PM

great workout, cant wait to try it. oh wait, my shoulders are still wrecked from the certification this past weekend, haha. is that tony i hear talking in the background?

Comment #13 - Posted by: Brent at May 16, 2007 9:06 PM

When they say a slight Jerk they are reffering to a 2nd dip with the hips and legs (a whole new movement)... so a Push Press is Dip/drive and a Push Jerk is dip/drive/dip (which allows the lifter to lift a heavier weight) there is a video that plays all three the Press, Push Press, and Push Jerk at the same time.
Rest between sets depends on the Lifters ability. A novice lifter will only need 3-4mins while an elite lifter working closer to human potential will take upto 10 mins between sets... The heavy lift Workouts are thier own animal and should not be a race against time, they are more of a race against Load.

Comment #14 - Posted by: Dave H at May 16, 2007 9:40 PM

#12, Matt, I don't think they had a prescribed "rest time" (I could be wrong), but I think it was around 3 minutes in between sets.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Ronnieb at May 16, 2007 10:03 PM

Awesome video, well done!

Derek I agree, the feet completely leave the floor in a jump and land for a push jerk as the loads got heavier. If you look at the push press video http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/cfj-nov-05/push-press.wmv with them demonstrating correct form her feet never leave the ground. On the other hand the push jerk http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/cfj-nov-05/push-jerk.wmv her feet completely leave the ground in a very noticeable jump and land. I'd say if you have to jerk the weight up, you should lower your weight so you have correct form for the push press, not a push jerk.

Comment #16 - Posted by: gdmv at May 16, 2007 10:14 PM

I'm surprised everyone on the demo videos always wears squishy running shoes while doing heavy lifting. Those shoes are terrible for heavy lifting. You could shell out 100-200 for some oly lifting shoes, or just buy a pair of chuck taylor's or vans. They're much better. You lose a lot of power and stability with the squishy, fancy shoes.

Comment #29 - Posted by: rpo at May 17, 2007 4:18 AM

I love these videos. One question:
After Brendan presses out at the top, the position he receives the weight in as he brings it back down to rack looks a lot like muted hip function (pelvis chasing knees). Is this ideal or not? My understanding is that this position is less stable and less powerful; stability being the primary concern for this phase of the movement.

I tend to do the same thing and I've been trying to "fix" it. But maybe I ain't broke and I'd love to here one way or the other.

Thanks!

couldn't go heavier since I don't have any more tens and 25's would be too much since I don't have a rack

This was my first comparison workout since I've been on Crossfit. Felt tired and a bit sick (plus my diet's been sht the last few days) but enough excuses. BTW, after the last time I posted I found out the barbell in the gym only weighs 15Kg and not 20Kg as I'd previously thought.

Previous heaviest weight = 62.5Kg

Seems to me that there has been a lot of shoulder work and not so much chest work of late. Hope to work on that part soon. I have alot of catch up to do though, tore a part of my stoach muscle few weeks back and damaged a small part of liver in the process. Me and the doc have no clue how that happened. But should be good next week. No traing for bout 2 weeks:( Doc says "light workout ok". Yeah right!

started at 165 and worked up for 215 for 2. dropped back down to 190 for final 2 sets.

being able to rack it makes a big difference. I wasn't able to move 215 without racking it on my shoulders fully. Once I racked it properly it went right up. I'd say it adds 25 lbs easily for someone who isn't even that good at racking.

thanks for the great video demonstration and tips.

Form was everything for the missed reps. I kinda purposely shot the weight up on the last set to get it over with...

Does it matter if I do 7 sets at the same weight or do a pyramid? Which is the better workout?

I always assumed they used 45lb. bars, but it said that Shari was at 90lbs and on her last set she had 30lbs. on both sides. Any rhyme or reason they use a lighter bar? Obviously it makes no difference if the total weight lifted is the same, but I was just curious.

first, let me thank you for the WOD video! it really helped me with form and reminded me to be aggressive. a 15# increase in upper body for me is HUGE.

second, i was going to try to combine yesterday's WOD with today's, since i missed it. i was going to do the lunges after my PP. my workout started much later than i anticipated (student never showed up for his makeup test! the nerve!). on my last rep of PP, i thought, "man! i am hungry." and then my ideas of doing a met con following my PP went out the window. maybe i can get to it later today, but i didn't want to undo the good i have been doing by having my body break down my muscle for fuel. i write this mostly to remind the other newbies, especially those struggling with fatigue and soreness -- LISTEN to your body and be smart. i will be better tomorrow for my discipline today. hope this helps somebody out there!

For all of us in the law enforcement community, we have lost another brother. Late on Wednesday, 16 May, 2007, Kenosha Co. (Wisconsin) Deputy Frank Fabiano was shot and killed during a traffic stop. He is survived by his wife and seven year old daughter. The offender is in custody.

Please keep his family in your thoughts. Please train hard, be safe, and take care of each other.

Turned on to CrossFit by a guy at the gym I hardly know - we're both getting in trouble for doing "weird" and "non-standard" exercises. First WOD today...this ROCKS! 12 years USMC, 15 playing rugby, climbed Kilimanjaro last year...and this workout still kicked my ass. Nice to find folks concerned with strength/fitness (great video demos, great comments above, etc) and not beach muscles. Can't wait for tomorrow, I'm hooked!

I retract my comment from yesterday. Sunrise brought sore legs. Todays workouts certainly helped to finish me off.
Thats good advice about making sure you get plenty of rest and nutrients. Do everything you can for youself to help you grow and devlop in training. Leave all the hardcore stuff for a time when you have no choice but to. There is a fine line between "hard" and "retard". Dont cross it!

Just got kicked out of a New York Sports Club for being a "trainer". Was helpingmy friend the CFWU and OHS...was politely asked to leave. Maybe it was bc my friend had the best workout of her life w/o paying 80 dollars an hour and/or doing the elliptical. I then accused the manager of being a little "hefty" to be working in a gym. It was a good day.

Comment #144 - Posted by: JEM at May 17, 2007 1:19 PM

c,

You're right in your judgment ("half the time brendan is jerking it") but wrong in your explanation: "there is no jumping or anything in a push press, you stay on your feet."

Neither jumping nor the lack thereof constitute a jerk; rather it is the retreat of the hip concomitant with the press that defines the jerk. Of that he's guilty.

Technically his jerk is a DQ because he presses the weight to lockout, i.e., doesn't lockout before his feet hit the ground.

His move is a bit of a hybrid with a 90% push-press characteristic.

I will be deferring today's WO to tomorrow.

Instead, I wanted to honor my husband who had his last day on an ODA yesterday. He was on an ODA for 10 1/2 years, on 3 different teams, 3 of those years being a "Team Daddy". The brotherhood means as much to him as me and the kids do. It's a new chapter in our life. It's an honor to be his wife.

This is what the kids and I did instead-
21-15-9 rep rounds, for time:
Wall Ball (used an 8 lb ball)
Push ups (regular mixed in with on knees)
Jumping Pullups
Situps
SDLHP
Single unders

I jinxed myself posting after yesterday's WOD "I just hope no one runs from me tonight." It happened twice! A first in 10+ years. Caught the first and the second vaporized. Just the reason why I love CF.

Comment #170 - Posted by: Sesoku at May 17, 2007 2:47 PM

alright the definition is clear.

my point is that he'd likely push press more as the jumping motion shows that there is energy wasted - not all the moemntum generated by the dip was put into the bar. practice smoother contact = more weight.

good videos, maybe there should be a sn+cj day.

We lost our soccer game but I got a goal and an assist so am happy 'bout that.

Had a dream I was in a gym and doing kipping pull ups like crazy, plowing through one muscle up after another. In my dream my family called and when I looked at my watch I saw it was after 11pm. I had been there all day doing pull ups/ muscle ups.

You cannot imagine my dissapointment when I went to try this out at the gym. Still stuck on the gravitron.

Making up today's WOD later.

CFWU x 2 minus dips

55, 65, 75, 80, 85 (failed all three), 80, 80 (2 good reps, 1 failure)

First time going heavy with push presses. I think I'm still figuring out my rack position. The attempts at 85 felt weird right off the bat. I'm happy that I got six good reps of a weight I can barely budge on a standard press.

Finished with reverse forearm curls. My forearms aren't cranky like they used to be, but the extensors are definitely weak. They got fried during this workout.

My metabolic conditioning sucks. And I probably should've bought the 1 pood kettlebell to start.

#263 Jason--

Without watching your technique, I think a good guess would be that you are not capitalizing on the "jumping the bar" momentum created by your dip+jump. If the bar is solidly connected to the shoulders/chest and you put some explosive energy into it, you can't help but generate 20-70+lbs over your press. I think I'm pretty average and my press max is 155 and my push press max is 205.

Similarly, a good jerk technique can add even more lbs on top of the push press. I hope this helps, but there are several other common technique mistakes. Search the Message Board for details.

135/155/165/175(f)/175(f)/175x1/155/155/135. Had to get 175, felt really good to get my body weight even though it was only once.

Comment #312 - Posted by: mike in the ro at May 18, 2007 6:32 AM

As Rx'd, all reps full ROM with lock-out:

135 x 3
145 x 3
155 x 3
165 x 3
175 x 3
185 x 3
195 x 3

Aggressive drives truly make the difference on these. Next time I will shoot for a max of 215.

First day back since May 2nd. I had to quit due to some sort of 'exertion headaches.' After 2+ weeks and a 'clean' MRI, I'm going to start easing back in.

1 mi run: 7:40
100ft walking lunges
50 squats (broken 25/25)
25 good mornings

Enough for 1st day. No headaches, but I think I'd get one if I pushed too hard...

I think I must be feeling the last few workouts because my weights were much higher on May 1 or I started to heavy or a combination of both...I hope, because I don't think I am getting weaker. May 1, 2007

Used 70 kg for all my sets but the last one. Did two more excerises for my shoulders(bent over dumbell rasies, regular dumbell raises).

Very sore shoulders!

A few days late but I want to be able to click on the "compare to 070517" link the next time around, hehe.

What a great PR day!

115 OMG! Without much trouble either!

That is a 20lb+ gain in two weeks with only a moderate adherence to a WO schedule do to some scheduling challenges.

Next my mile went down from 13:57 on 05/12 to 12:06 today, again without much trouble. I might make my goal of a ten minute mile by next week after all!

from 30 lbs DB's up to 85 lbs DB's.

I had to do this one at work where they only have DB's. I could have handled more weight but my back didn't like them today.
