Finally not a timed workout!!! Ultimate power engage!

Comment #1 - Posted by: Philips at September 22, 2010 5:01 PM

That's an ironic quote coming from old Honest Abe, here's another:
"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause."

standing

Comment #8 - Posted by: mike/40/6'3"/210 at September 22, 2010 6:00 PM

Quick question about form: can we engage any other parts of our body in the press? i.e., can we give a little jerk with the legs, or is it strict arms only? Thanks in advance.

Comment #11 - Posted by: 'sota cf at September 22, 2010 6:20 PM

#8: I don't know about how crossfit RX'es it, but I almost strictly do push presses. I'm going to say they mean literal shoulder press, which I understand to be feet shoulder width apart, and strictly upperbody and no jerks or push pressing. I haven't done really heavy shoulder presses in years due to partial labral tears, but my shoulders feel as good as they ever have when I was younger, so I'll give it a shot I think. I'm going for 175, which is more than I've done in the past 4 years.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Brian at September 22, 2010 6:27 PM

If they wanted push press or push jerk or split jerk they would have specified. I belive this is strict shoulder press. Grind it up.

Comment #46 - Posted by: Ged at September 23, 2010 5:20 AM

I realized something yesterday as I was pounding out the WOD at my base gym.

The military expects me to run 1.5 miles "AS FAST AS I CAN," and do as many pushups and situps as POSSIBLE IN 60 SECONDS in order to achieve a "fit" score and see if i pass. That kind of workout actually sounds like a mini-WOD.

Yet the military wants to open a huge research project into crossfit, insanity, and P90X style high intensity workouts. Do they expect us to train leisurely when they're asking us to bang it out as fast as possible? Just a thought.

BTW... Over the last two years I've done P90X, Vertical Jump Bible(not high intensity) and started crossfit two weeks b4 the birth of my first son this June. P90X was before I went to basic training and I came out the other end with a trophy for top male in PT at 28 yrs old competing with guys in their "prime." I've still got a lot to learn and a long way to go but the results I've had should help prove HIGH INTENSITY WORKS!!!!

Sure, it's a remote possibility you might have rhabdomyolysis. Most likely, you're just really really sore. Been a while since you worked those muscles, hasn't it! Don't try to be the big swinging D*** in the gym, work your way back into it and keep your ego in check.

It all felt pretty good. My shoulders are slowly coming back. No shoulder pain. I'm not as strong as last time, but I'm happy with today's effort.
Last time I hit 135 for the last set.

Oh yes, I know it was 7 sets, I just wanted to hit one more for the set I only hit 2 reps. Kind of a make up.

Thanks. Sorry to ask a lot of questions - just want to make sure I am doing this correctly.

So do a set of 3 reps - wait 3-5 minutes, and then do another set of 3 reps? Seems like a lot of rest time in between sets of 3...but I suppose the idea is to maximize the weight you put up?

Thanks!

#2 Stalin. A fight against the "Man Of Steel" would be fun, plus he was an evil Commie and they're always fun to pound on.

I used to love watching Vasiliy Alekseyev lift on TV when I was a kid. Seeing him shuffle sideways through the door and then onto the stage was a memorable event (did that dude EVER wear a shirt?). Then, bing, bang, boom...under that weight and unstoppable! GO ALEKSEYEV!

Comment #119 - Posted by: PhilH m/40/5'10'/205/Crossfit Bday: 10 Sep 10 at September 23, 2010 12:23 PM

quick question: whenever I do 1 rep max or 3 rep max on shoulder press, but not necessarily on push press or push jerk, my neck and middle traps get really tight shortly there after. Its hard to turn my head, etc.. Am I doing something wrong? I am guessing it is from really pushing my head through the hole on the way up. Thoughts.

Today's lesson was not to try cranking these three's out in rapid chains but to let myself stop all motion and 'reset' for each rep. It was a big help, as was the shoulder mobility work from K-Star.

First 6 sets did using regular front rack position. On round 7, tried using more of an "elbows down" position, but I can't even get the weight started as my shoulder joint feels like it is jamming (sharp pain). On round 8 went back to the regular front rack position. Just about had two reps...

I failed both times I went for 52.5Kg. WTF? I don't understand how I can have 5 sets of 3 at 50 and fail to get 1 rep at 52.5.

Any help would be appreciated.

Afterwards, I went to 3 reps of 60 on a Push Press, and then 3 reps of 70 on Push Jerk. I finished the day with a 1 rep max Push Jerk at 80Kg, and made it easy.

I treated today as a dynamic effort (speed) day ala Westside. So 7 sets of 3 reps, on the minute every minute, used 95# for all.

Then did the same thing with back squats: 3-3-3-3-3-3-3. Used 185# for all.

Cashed out with L-sit practice on my new (homemade) parallettes. Only went 30 seconds cumulative, and it took me 3 tries to get there. There's always something to work on...
