Boz is certifiable. Go get 'em, Brother.

Andy, keep enabling him. Nothing like automatic weapons and skydiving to keep a Flowboy on track.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Matt Swift at September 21, 2009 6:20 PM

Had a few questions about cardio with the WODs. Does everyone mix in cardio either post or pre WODs or try and run earlier in the day? I know a lot of the WOD's include row and running but just wasn't sure since on a day like today it didn't seem that cardio oriented since you're suppose to have a full recovery between lifts.

try to do the crossfit warmup as fast and hard as possible that will get ur heart rate going. And what I do if I feel good after the WOD I may go for a run...hope this helped

ps deadlift are great

Comment #20 - Posted by: Dan c at September 21, 2009 6:32 PM

Boz should have brought a jump rope and gone for a docosable-under. I think that would be 22 passes.

Awesome pic! I still owe you a visit out to your box, Adrian. Thanks for doing such a great job with the L2 certs. You HQ guys work your tails off!

DL 1's WOD: I did this in combination with the SP-PP-PJ. Good guess of what was next, I suppose... just glad to have 2 working arms again!

#14-
Cardio is overrated. CF's metcon days (Helen, Filthy Fifty, basically anything that makes you feel like you're going to puke or pass out) do far more for you than traditional long, slow distance. They work your glycolytic energy pathway, primarily. Strength days like the SP/PP/PJ and tomorrow's deadlifts will test your capacity in the phosphagenic pathway. Increasing your work capacity in those two pathways transfers over to better performance in the oxidative (think long-term cardio) pathway, but it doesn't work the other way around. On the strength days just focus on hitting them as hard as you can, and if you're not completely physically and mentally spent you probably didn't go heavy enough. Or you could be one of the superhumans who can hit two-a-days. In that case, feel free to throw in some interval running or a metcon later in the day, or check out CF Endurance for some more ideas.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Eric at September 21, 2009 6:45 PM

Boz...it is time for a tan.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Groo at September 21, 2009 6:46 PM

#14 - Read the What is Crossfit and other free downloads in the Getting Started section or in the journal tab to understand how the CF method and programming gives you as much CV Endurance as you need...unless you are a serious long distance specialist.

It's fair to say that 1 year in, my long distance running times are down slightly - maybe 5% but all my other CV and Anaerobic endurance based times across all the rowing distances, 1km run and below are all up off the CF programming...at the same time as which my pull ups have tripled, my strength is 50% higher and my flexibility has increased.

it's a hard thing to do when you come from your own exercixse background (as we all did) but my advice is to surrender to the programming go as hard every day as you can and then go by the results.

Can't do DL tomorrow, pulled two muscles in my lower back 2 weeks ago doing the CFT, 1st time I had ever injured my back.

I did my cardio as a warm-up after a long day of traveling for work, and during my 2nd set at 425# I felt the sharp pain and instant failure. Done heavy lifting for awhile, which is killing me. Nothing unsupported for a few weeks, then we'll be back at it slowly.
Any suggestions from the "bad back" FRAT out there, I don't want to make anything worse.
I've been through 6 knee operations, dislocated & separated shoulder, etc...don't need another issue.

Try doing some bridges, planks, and side planks for some stabilization therapy. hold some L-sits, do some supermans for time. Anything to where your lumbar stabilizers (core) are being held tight for periods of 30 to 90 seconds. Think non-weighted lumbar spine stability.

Heavy deadlifts aggravate a chronic L5-S1 problem I have, so I took it easy on today's wod:

Deadlifts, 10 reps, 135/225/315(PR)

Felt like I could have pulled 10 reps with 335 lbs tonight but played it safe. My 1R PR is 420 lbs but I have not gone below 10 reps on deadlifts since June.

Comment #38 - Posted by: Spanky at September 21, 2009 7:21 PM

Thanks everyone. I think I didn't do the strength stuff with enough weight. To be honest just didn't want to yardsale the bar at my gym, need to get to one that has some of the rubber weights or get with a partner on those.

I'm in love with these workouts and am starting the 30 day paleo diet today. And I definitely feel like some of hte other workouts are massive cardio days since I've almost thrown up in a few already.

Comment #41 - Posted by: PSA 6 at September 21, 2009 7:38 PM

So, I am having a little bit of the CrossFit Blues. I train at a box where the owners really discourage some of the more advanced athletes from pursuing training outside of their very general programming/daily WOD. If we try to focus on our individual training for competition, they say things like, "What is good for the group is good for the individual... you're just a distraction... general fitness, constantly random programming (they really say this), etc etc." With all the jargon they toss around, they seem miss the point. They highly cater to people who are going to bring them more money (good for business) but discourage their more focused athletes from training hard and smart. It really takes the heart out of what we are doing. What about the freaking CrossFit spirit? I am inclined to leave the box. In fact, I would leave tomorrow, but I don't have a space to CrossFit on my own right now, and there are no other affiliates in the area.

I have heard that other boxes have owners that serve as coaches-- motivators who really want to see their athletes succeed. We just don't have this where I train.

I always thought that the challenge of CrossFit was to be disciplined enough to commit to the training wholeheartedly. I never thought the challenge would be to convince a box owner to actually let you train hard at their gym. I feel like I am in Globo-landia.

Anyone else have this problem? Anyone else have the CrossFit blues? Suggestions?

#42 having the crossfit blues

I guess it all depends on what you are focusing on...your strengths or your weaknesses. I try to put together a "goat" workout each week. For example, I put together snatches, muscle ups, and 400m runs or handstand push ups, double unders, and burpees. These are all things that I either (1) hate or (2) stink at. It seems to me that it makes a lot of sense to get out of my comfort zone regularly. I think this will be more beneficial for me in the long run than emphasizing my strengths. Just my 2 cents worth....

Assuming we all got the whole picture from your post, I'd say that your trainers are succumbing to a dogmatic attitude that is anything but CrossFit. If you came into my box and wanted to do nothing but row 2k every day, I'd probably say you're not really doing CrossFit. But to discourage you from pursuing athletic endeavors outside of CrossFit is to miss the point completely. If you can't reap the benefits of all your CrossFitting, why the heck are you doing it? In "What is Fitness", coach specifically prescribes picking up new sports often. One of my best friends does triathlons. He does a LOT of sport-specific training. But he supplements it with CrossFit. I don't see a problem with that at all. To me, CrossFit is about empowering people to be more than they ever thought possible. As far as money goes, there will never be a shortage of people with a low level of fitness and self-esteem that would be forever changed for the better if they signed up at a CrossFit gym. My advice would be to just shrug off the foolishness, keep on CrossFitting and do your thing. Most of us in the CF community would encourage you to pursue whatever athletic endeavors you want. But we'd also say to stick with CF to make sure you keep a solid GPP.
Good Luck!

Reno Ty and Spanky,
Thanks for the support in your posts. I think the issue is not that the affiliate owners discourage training for other sports. It's that they discourage training for individual competitive purposes IN CROSSFIT. Unless we do their WOD, they don't take well to the training. They view it as a distraction.

I guess I should just find a way to get out of that box. If only I weren't dependent on their equipment!

Crossfit blues:

I had the same issue when I was going to a box. In my case, I felt like the owner/trainer was just "mailing in" the wods and I didn't feel challenged. He kept repeating wods week after week. I would say that I wanted to do a different wod than his wod and he would sarcastically comment, "Sure, it's not like it's my gym!" So I just laughed it off and did my thing. But, I was courteous and respectful and stayed out of other people's way. I felt the same way as you, as if he was more concerened with the general group than more conditioned athletes who wanted to hone specific skills. If you want to do your thing, then just let them know how you feel and try and be courteous to the others and stay out of the "groups" way. I'm not sure what your issue is, but I think the reason I got an attitude is because the owner of the box I went to felt insulted that I didn't want to do his wod. Additionally, it may be that the owner doesn't think you are ready to do your own thing. Or, they really don't want you distracting other people. Ask yourself this question... What if a trainer/owner from a different box relocated and came to your box and wanted to do his/her own wod everyday? Would your owner be ok with this? Maybe, maybe not.

P.S. Should mention that some affiliates may have a legit space/equipment/safety issue with people doing their own thing during a group WOD. We've had a few "loners" at CF DC who would get in the way of the large group. My advice to leave only holds if the owner won't work with you on it despite available space/time.

Can you give us an example of one of their wods and/or a wod you would have liked to do?

Are you talking about if you wanted to do a crossfit football wod when they had programed "annie" for that day?

Last max was 425, going on my 6th day of WODs straight. I wanted to take today off but, I enjoy Dreadlifts. Going to do some block work at 495 and get more comfortable with the higher masses. I also need to knock out some sprints, then promise myself that I will take the next two days off.

Comment #98 - Posted by: Angelo at September 22, 2009 5:49 AM

newb question : 71 kg (156 lbs) is all the weight I have for the moment but I feel like I can deadlift more than that...should I do 5 sets of 3 reps instead or maybe 3 sets of 5 to get more benefits from this strength day?

I don't know what a gym, or group of people needs to affiliate. I am at Panzer Kassern in the Germany. I am affiliting with crossfit as of now. People keep saying we don't have what it takes to be technically affiliated, but I say come here and say we don't have what it takes.

BLUES

Talk to your affiliate owner/coach. Not on the floor when he's working with other athletes, but when you guys can both have a real dialogue. Maybe try to catch him at lunch or 30min before a class (schedule it). Tell him exactly what is on your mind, and listen to what he has to say. All our athletes do our programming, unless we need to scale. If someone wanted to just come in and do their own WODs, it wouldn't work out at our box.

Sometimes there is just a disconnect, and getting it out on the table can be nothing but useful for you and your affiliate in the long run. He may realize he is deficient in some areas, possibly less varied or intense than he thought (any coach can be guilty here). You may find that your lack of challenge is actually a goat that you need to address personally. For instance, some of my competitors decided they wanted to go exclusively Chest to bar on all pullups. I nixed that, bc there are WODs where I want them going much faster, and C2B wouldn't provide the stimulus I was looking for.

At the very least, go at the WODs hard...whether you like, understand, want to or not. If you supply the intensity, the results can't hide. Lastly...talk it out, make suggestions, and listen openly.

Comment #112 - Posted by: J Millen at September 22, 2009 6:36 AM

First I just want to say thanks for the support. I value this community and appreciate your help in this problem.

For me, the issue is not whether or not I can substitute a different WOD on any given day. The issue is having the support and space to train with specific intention over a period of time. This may include doing a crossfit football WOD instead of Annie. Or I may need to focus on strength, work capacity, or speed on a given day-- it would depend on how it fit in the training for that specific period. I am a trainer, so it is not out of the question that I can program myself. I am also not a loner-- I work well when working with a group.

Generally, I have tried to stay out of the way whenever I am doing a different WOD at our box. Most of the time I have just gone outdoors to stay out of the way, but this has still been met with dissatisfaction. The affiliate owners just declared that we are not to do WODs outside of what is on the board, with the exception of specific substitutions within the WOD structure. I think I see a few trends: 1) the owners are rightfully concerned about affiliate income, cohesion, and safety, 2) however they are slightly insecure about/put-off by athletes not using their WODs, and 3) while they support and prioritize the general athlete, they don't create a space for crossfit competitors to train more specifically. Rather, individual competitors are not a priority for them.

But do individual competitors and crossfit affiliates have to be mutually exclusive?

If you are an affiliate owner, how do you approach athletes who train to compete in CrossFit? Are there any CrossFit Gamers who experience these same tensions, or do you feel supported at your box? Or do you all just own your own affiliates? If so, how the hell do you afford health care?

444.5 PR!

Last time on the 3-3-3-3-3-3-3 deadlifts, I had a 1RM PR of 445 and a 3RM PR of 375, only to find out that the bar I was using was a 39.5 lb bar! So, in reality, they were still PRs, but at 440.5 and 370.5.

JB-- just saw your post but had already written.

I have talked with them. They are juggling a lot of priorities, and large group management takes the cake right now. In conversation, they aren't really supportive of those who have expressed similar struggles. Unfortunately, I don't think I would trust their guidance at this point. I think it may be time for me to get my own equipment and train outside of that gym. That can be expensive, but I may just have to do it.

I think the tough part about this is a loss of community if I leave that box.

Not sure what the problem was this morning. Maybe not fully recovered from the ghd situp/back ex on Friday. No where near a pr.

165 went up with only small struggle
175 didn't budge, (didn't count this one)
170 (f) made it half way up my shins
165 (f) made it half way up my shins
155 easy
160 little struggle at knees
160 same as above
162 again same as above

The last two concentrated on weight on heels. That seemed to make the initial pull quite easy, just started to stick at the knees, but managed to pull the rest of the way.

I don't know what a gym, or group of people needs to affiliate. I am at Panzer Kassern in the Germany. I am affiliting with crossfit as of now. People keep saying we don't have what it takes to be technically affiliated, but I say come here and say we don't have what it takes.

Hi, I'm new to Crossfit. I love the WODs however I'm not sure how to interpret WOD like today's. Am I supposed to gradually increase weight or work at a max weight? I know weight differs for everyone which is why I'm assuming it isn't posted. I'm curious how weight is determined for specific workouts. Would someone shed some light on how I should determine weight for the WODs? Thanks!

Hey Robyn just start off with a weight that you know you can do and work your way up and your final deadlift should be the weight you max out at. If you move up in wiehgt and struggle to lift it lower it and try again. But start off at a weight you definetly know you can do and just work from there. Hope this helps you out and goodluck. post your weight let us know how you did.

Robyn #166

Todays workout is a one rep mex deadlift. Meaning you should warm up using the standard CrossFit workout (or whatever you have been using). Do 4 or 5 warm up sets and then hit your one rep max. If you dont know your one rep max, work up to it. You should NEED 3 - 5 minutes rest between sets. If you dont, then the load is not heavy enough. Remember you are building strength in this work out.

Hope this helps.

Wonder if someone can help me. Been using Crossfit for the past year to improve my MMA and all-roudn fitness. It's made a massive difference to my competition and the way I train.

Recently tore ligaments in my knee though, and am waiting for surgery. Can't do most lifts (including push press etc) as a result. Any suggestions as to what I should do? Don't really want to go back to 'body-building' weight training. Looking forward to CapeCrossfit opening in Cape Town...

#165, I'm not a doctor, but I am a first year medical student. When you start feeling pressure 'down there,' especially when picking heavy things, that could be a signal of a hernia, or at least weakness in tissue layers in the region that could lead to one. I would say go a little lighter, less herky-jerky, and focus more on keeping things tight.

Yesterday's WOD was great, and I managed to enjoy today's even more. I've never tried to max out DL so new PR today!

Deadlift heavy singles: 315(3)-405-425-450(f)-445(f)-405-405(f).

PR is 435. Sub-marginal day, still looking for that target of 450, was able to get it off the floor but awfully slow and shaky. 425 was the best lift of the day, felt good. Might be a little fatigued.

Cash out: DU practice, got 5 sets of 10+ in about 10 attempts, strung together 26 consecutives, a PR; OHS with towel and hold at bottom, 1 minute.

Re: Post 221 (Talon)

Yes, you must use an alternating grip on heaviy deadlifts as this helps keep the bar from twisting out of your grip.

I've used an alternating grip since before my first Powerlifting meet in 1972, all strength athletes use that grip.

300 is my PR but I haven't been able to hit it since I first got it awhile back. Can't seem to keep the bar hooked in at that weight. Not sure if it's a perspiration issue or indicative of a lack of grip strength. I can lift it if I can keep the bar in my hands. I really want that 2 X BW deadlift! So close!

first time with this wod (still need to get more/better plates and now new bar since mine is now bent). have been somewhat intimidated by this lift... no longer. perhaps could have gone heavier than 300 but it was all the weight i had. still feel good about it.

THIS is why form is so important. I was at a plateau with a low DL for _years_, and I had never done any research into proper form. The last time we did DLs, I ended up hurting my back, and I decided to watch the deadlift instructional videos on the site. It taught me just a handful of simple, easy things to do, and WOW did it make a difference! I just beat my PR by nearly 20% just by improving my technique! And what's more, I bet I could have done 315.

Moral of the story: physical ability is a function of both muscle AND mind. Do your homework!

This morning, I tried to do the best I could with my deadlifts. I ran two 800s first, because I have found running is the best way for me to warm up for deads. I did a full warm-up. I went slow and steady on my lifts, and hit a PR on the 5th, just like I planned. I tried to get my head in the game, but…

242
264
286
308
328 PR (by 3 pounds)
330 F
242

The 328 wiped me out. The 330 didn’t even get off the ground. I had PR’d, so I was happy, but I was still frustrated because I knew I was ’supposed’ to be lifting more.

Fast forward to the evening. Watching my clients lift got me anxious to pick up that 330 I had missed earlier. Once they finished their work, I stripped some of the weight off and decided to try for it. No warm-up, in my running shoes, I picked up the 330…and it was easy! I added 5 pounds, waited a few minutes…and got 335! Ugly, but it went up. About half an hour later, another client matches my 335 and says he’s trying for 340. Well, we’ve been close on our deads for the past six months, so I had to try and keep up with him. He got the 340 easy, so I went over…and got it! YAY! I sincerely believe that if it were not for seeing all of the clients succeed this evening, I would never have been inspired to follow in their footsteps. I thank them all for helping me get my brain out of the way and hit my deadlifts!

So, this evening was:

330 PR
335 PR
340 PR

Thanks, my goal was to DL 500 at 50... not there yet. My best is 485lbs, but that was before shoulder surgery last year, blew it out doing the caber toss at the Masters World Championships.

Shoot for the 405 club, ... that's the big one.

I really wanted to break 305. Improved 20# from the 9/7 heavy lift WOD. I have to make up for all the years of bodybuilding oriented workouts that did not include dead lifts and heavy squats. I should be over 400 on this lift.

Comment #343 - Posted by: phil g atlanta, ga at September 22, 2009 6:21 PM

I don't have enough weight at home to do singles, so I did:

Deadlift 3-3-3-3-3 reps

CFWU x2
135 x10
205 x5
255 x1

311 x3
311 x3
311 x3
311 x5

Felt great during this, so went for 5 reps on the last couple sets. Then finished with a few power clean attempts at 205 just for fun, and some double-unders. DUs are coming along.

I probably could have pulled 375 for the first and second but would have dropped # from there on. I didn't have a 1MR. Did I approach this correctly? Suggestions?

Comment #366 - Posted by: JTB at September 22, 2009 7:22 PM

JTB - I'm going to approach this as follows:

Pick something heavy I think I can DL. If I can, great, I'll put more weight on it. Repeat until I reach 8 or 9 singles, or until I max.

Don't want to sound like I'm making excuses but do any of you guys think that being on the tall side is not good for DLs? I feel like I'm at some sort of mechanical disadvantage when I'm at the bottom of the movement. Maybe it's just weak/old/crummy form

Bob, according to Kinematics, work only happens on along the x-axis. Vertical lifts(y-axis = height) aren't work!

(sorry, I never get to use physics jokes)

I've got a 6'10'' friend who says the same thing though. He hates most ROMs that start near the ground.

Woohoo! Very happy with that. Been stuck at 180 for a while. Going straight for PB at earlier sets worked. Might have gone for 190 but the second set felt that was enough for the day given still generally sore from half marathon.

PR at 345.

I started Crossfit a year ago but had to take 3 months off becuase I almost cut two fingers off in a landscaping accident. Just started back last week and am pumped. Have set PR's in shoulder press and deadlift since coming back. While I was injured I did regular bodybuilding routines because I could easier grip machine type excercises with my hand than pullup bar/deadlift type things. My metcons are way down but my strength went up. I think I actually needed a few months to just work on strength (squat, bench, shoulder press, etc.) to catch it up to my metcons which were always fast but could have been faster if I could push more weight.
I am excited about the future.

260 is a PR (all time) for me. Back about 2 years ago before I knew I had a back problem, I hit 255. Since struggling with spondylolisthesis, hitting this PR is huge to me.

Not bad...some third country security forces were deadlifting, arching and making me cringe, so I gave them some pointers. What's nice is there isn't much language barrier when it comes to lifting. I don't think they understood many words coming out of my mouth, but they got the foot placement, back angle, and lumbar curve pretty easily by just watching whereabouts I showed them. Good deed for the day done :)

Did a modified version of this after a modified version of the shoulder press, push press, push jerk WOD. Hamstrings kind of torn up from the last few days WOD's so didn't go for it on the one rep max to avoid re-injury of my left hamstring. Come to think of it, I haven't done a one rep max since June when I tore my hamstring on the one rep max deadlift WOD. Instead, did (1) 225x3, (1)275x3, then (5) 325x1. Hamstrings were definitely on the edge with the 325's, but it was manageable. Called it a day after that . . .

This time:
145x2 - 155x2 - 165(f) - 160 - 165(f)

My CFT DL weight is 165kg, so this was definitely not one of my best Dl'ing days. Also, the back was rounding something ugly. I think I'm gonna lower the weight and focus more keeping the back as tight as possible.

Man there are some strong people here!!!
315/365/405/415 f/415/425f/425 f
Getting stuck in the higher part of deadlift. Used supports to bring bar to mid thigh did 415/425/445
Reset the bar on ground completed 425 rather easily.
Two lessons: 1)I was pulling way to slowly trying to maintain back angle. I did better when I thought about cleaning it, still maintained back angle but I did it with speed.
2) I need to work on my back. I finally got a grip that is going to support my pull. I can squat alot more than 425. Which tells me I need to focus on my back a little more. I will keep doing pulls from midthigh to work that out.

Starting to work up to some real weight. Focusing on my form and not reinjuring lower back. Amazingly, my low back not only felt great, but I didn't really feel anything back there except normal feeling workout stress.

Very disapp. Lacking confidence in tech. Letting knees point in. Think chest rising quicker than hips. Raise hips a little to engage hamstrings, make back more parallel to floor.
