@4

Did you read the article? It cites no scientific articles (evoking CF's posts on global warming, but I digress), and the author's argument wasn't responsive to the health benefits but rather opined that the diet wasn't sustainable because grain feeds a lot of people and meat can't feed as many people. She also threw in a lovely canard about how some paleo devotees hunt their food like Paleo man used to, as if that were relevant to an analysis of the merits of the diet itself. The article was thin on fact on thick on plaintive appeals to the wonders of the vegetarian diet - but note that the author is an avid animal lover and has published books on the topic.

For two weeks I have been craving more Tabata and now? I feel like I got what I wished for.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Brizendine at October 27, 2011 6:16 PM

in regards to the article, i do just fine eating a balanced diet of 40-40-20 %s of protein, carbs, and healthy fats, and part of the 40% of carbs that i eat come from grains. i also eat between 4 and 6 times a day. i lost over 50 lbs in six months eating that way, not to mention, i'm stronger than before, have a mean 6 pack, and never go hungry. all of these "diets" seem faddish to me, not to mention, expensive.

i'm totally fine not going to paleo route.

Comment #10 - Posted by: crissy at October 27, 2011 6:18 PM

Really excited for this workout. "tabata something else" was one of the first WODs I ever did so and I'm ready to hit it again tomorrow.

The last workout tabata was tough. This looks tough for me since I'm not the greates at pull ups. Usually 8 max in a set. And having just started crossfit I have little grasp on kipping.
Question about tabata timer. I work out in a normal gym. What do most people use? iPhone app, clock?
Also is there a trick for getting from one exercise to the other? I'm usually still breathing so heavily that I barely have time to walk to next station. Haha. And I thought I was fit before I started crossfit...

Comment #31 - Posted by: Bill at October 28, 2011 4:36 AM

The article misstates the pale argument, and is written by an anthropologist, not a nutritionist. The concern of the author isn't the health effect of the paleo diet. Her concern is how "we" are going to feed the world if so many are eating meat.

@4 made a great point, correlating her argument to the global warming crowd: the article is a non-scientific (i.e., irrational) blurb by an "expert" outside her field.

The people who bring you the government's food pyramid are the same people who bring you global warming.

PRed on the pull-ups today, but it's a trade off:combined reps of pull-ups and push-ups stayed constant. Should have made at least 11 sit-ups each interval and 20 squats.

Did 10x2 back squats with 60 seconds rest between sets last night @100kg across all sets (after Tabata FGB in the morning). Legs are very sore today.

Comment #38 - Posted by: preacherman at October 28, 2011 6:40 AM

any feedback on this is appreciated -

i've been doing CF (and some sealfit) for about 3 years now pretty consistently. i started with a pretty good base, so for the first 1-2 years i experienced consistent, yet slow growth in muscle and overall fitness. about 6-8 months ago i hit a serious physical and mental plateau - I call it the "crossfit wall". physically i stopped seeing progress (strength and cardiovascular endurance). i stopped following the WODs strictly, rather I started creating WODs on my own or picked between CF and Sealfits WODs on a daily basis. I do not feal as though I am getting a good workout unless i am doing some sort of Metcon workout which is causing me to burnout frequently. i rarely take days off, so i think by doing Metcon WODs 6-7 days in a row i am inhibiting my ability to improve. i do all the olympic lifts and low-rep strength work, but once I complete these I feel as though i have to do a Metcon to get my heart rate up. i also feel like I am consistently doing the same workouts everyday (sqt cleans, deadlifts, burpees, pullups).

mentally i can not get through a WOD unbroken lately. i stop and take breaks when i know my body can push through it - but mentally I cash out. i do not even look forward to WODs like i used to. i show up - grind out a WOD - and then leave.

not sure if anyone else has ever hit the proverbial CF wall I speak of, but any advice would be appreciated? i know some of you have been doing this for almost a decade, so i would assume others have had similar experiences.

also, any advice for pushing through a difficult Metcon from a mental perspective? what helps you push through a WOD unbroken instead of putting your hands on your knees for suck of air inbetween rounds? i used to have some buzz words or phrases that helped me push through - but they do nothing any more

Good luck.

Comment #45 - Posted by: IlliniJason at October 28, 2011 7:47 AM

abt,
I'm sure you've already heard this, but sounds like you're over-training. I speak from my own experience. Laughed out loud reading your post because it could have been written by me. I am just getting back after a back thing that was the result of what you're talking about. I was mixing and matching CF wods, Sealfit, and CFEndurance. Typically going 2-3 times a day. I was doig WOD at my affiliate in early morning, then an endurance wod in afternoon, and strength work at night. Stupid. Eventually, jacked my back up and was forced to slow down and actually not wod for 2 weeks. Almost went insane, and remembered/got re-connected with why I do crossfit to begin with. That's your answer for pushing through the wall. Get back in touch with why you do this vs. any much easier program. Reset your focus on that, and you'll push through. Now, I'm just getting back and feels great again; like new. Good luck.

Comment #51 - Posted by: Matthew Lawrence at October 28, 2011 8:54 AM

@atb#38...

Take some time off. There's a reason why CF mainsite WOD's are 3 days on and 1 day OFF and why some days are "just strength days". You need to break your metcon addiction and cure your fuckarounditis (google it.)

Don't get caught up reading posts from Sealfit guys doing 5 WOD's a day (you know..one each for baseline, strength, stamina, durability, etc...) instead remind yourself of CF's fundamental concept: constantly varied, functional exercise performed at a HIGH INTENSITY. coasting through wod's and habitually doing the same movements and the same ol' strength work is not CF.

So step back, set some new goals, limit your time in the gym, learn a new sport, don't be a gym rat, take rest days, enjoy life!
...

as for today's WOD I'm taking a rest day. TSE is one of my favorites so I may do it tomorrow.

Comment #52 - Posted by: brian p m/34/5'8"/170 at October 28, 2011 8:55 AM

@38 ATB I am with you. I started crossfit back in 05. Have hit several Plateau walls etc. Mix it up would be my advice. For 3 months i went straight Crossfit Endurance ran some races etc. This summer did some old school weight lifting and mixed in some sealfit for my metcons. Its hard at times to stick with straight crossfit wods get out and do something different and you'll soon come back. Currently i find doing crossfit and sealgrinderpt.com for my metcons the way to go and i program my own strength work is best for me good luck.

The variety of WODs, as well as the anticipation which builds each day as I wait to see the WOD, makes for great fun.

at #38:

I feel this way at times too. I sometimes think I cannot take a day off even b/c if I do, my work thus far will be squandered. The trick for me...take the rest day! I have seen real improvement physically and mentally. I also look forward to WOD's a lot more since I know I get that rest day as a breather. If you don't think you are pushing yourself hard enough, just ask yourself, "What would Chris Spealler do?!"

Also, remember what Conan said is great in life..."Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women!"

Hope that helps

#2 - The article is overall pretty thoughtful without being too informative or instructive - I think the best chord she strikes is the sustainability one, at least, thats the one that resonates with me the most. The answer to all this that gets me to sleep at night is to eat local, sustainably grown food, even if its not necessarily the "best" for my development as an athlete.

Kevin C. -- thanks for noticing my PR, I appreciate it!

@atb #38 you'll probably get many responses advising you to rest for a while, and I definitely agree but I wanted to add my 2 cents on one thing: you mentioned that you stopped following mainsite WOD's and started essentially cherry-picking WOD's so you could focus on metcons. This is exactly why I decided a few years ago to strictly follow mainsite WOD's no matter if it was something I wanted to do or not. Even with 30+ years of exercise experience I know that if left to my own devices I naturally gravitate towards stuff I'm good at and away from things I suck at or are unfamiliar with. This way I learn/practice all kinds of things, but maybe more importantly (at my age) I'm not hitting the same things over and over and I think it really helps avoid getting burned out.

As someone smarter than me once said, "there is no such thing as overtraining, only under-resting."

Feedback for @ atb #38. I am no expert, but you sound like you are either overtraining, or not getting enough sleep/rest. Also you made no mention of your diet or age, but there eventually comes a time when a bad diet will cause your fitness gains to stop, and as for age, well, you know we are all getting older, and that's all I'll say about that.

Comment #85 - Posted by: Phil at October 28, 2011 12:23 PM

@ #37 (preacherman) I've hit that wall myself at times. And I find it is best broken through competition. I often work out alone as I am not near a box, but when my motivation wanes and I find myself "slacking" I find some sort of competitive situation to either observe, participate in, or best of all judge. About a month ago I was really struggling, but I attended and judged a crossfit competition in my home town (300 miles from where I live now) and it was just what I needed. To see all of the young kids getting started and watch others on par with or just above my fitness level competing was enough to get me on track.

Comment #86 - Posted by: Alan at October 28, 2011 12:24 PM

atb - I'd suggest, if you're not already doing it, to find a crossfitty sport and start playing it. Cut back CF to a few times a week to just maintain, and work on the sport. Mountain/road biking? Kayaking? Rugby? Rock climbing? Lumberjacking? Boxing? MMA?

My personal sport is motocross. CF is the first workout program where I've felt as exhausted as I do after a race. I can just see people now rolling their eyes and saying the bike does all the work, but until you've wrestled a 235lb bike with 50HP around a rough track for 15+ minutes with 20 lbs of protective gear on in 90 degree heat, you won't understand how taxing a sport it is.

@ #21 Matt J

I work out in a globo gym too, and use a G-Shock G-7700 watch (~$45) for Tabata WOD's. It's got a dual countdown timer that auto-repeats, I set both timers for 30 seconds. The alarm last 10 seconds (beeps 10 times) when each 30 second interval is done, so I just rest while the watch is beeping and work during the remaining 20 seconds while the watch is quiet.

It's light and relatively small, and got a whole bunch of other features. It's a great Crossfit watch.

As far as transitions between exercises, I'll just drag equipment across the gym and set up where ever is most convenient. Today I did all the exercises right next to the pullup bar.

Matt J @ 21 -- I found this iPod Tabata timer just yesterday and tried it for the first time today and it worked really well. I always used to time Tabatas with a watch or clock and I really prefer the iPod method because you can focus completely on the workout and not watching the clock (I train alone, so there's nobody else to keep time or score). The guy who made the timer gives you a voiceover 3-2-1 countdown to start and finish each interval/rest period and tells you when it's time to switch exercises, and the music is something to listen to but not distracting. Just set your iPod to keep repeating the file and you're ready to go.

atb #38,

Lots of really good advice above. Quite a good group on here today. Kudos to all who chipped in.

The age old question(s) here on .com: is the Main Page too much/is the Main Page too little? For some (like you) who have a greater capacity than others (like me), the Main Page might need some supplementation. But all of the rules of the road still apply regarding rest and recovery. Do you have a day job? My experience is that many/most of the folks doing the massive volume programs like Sealfit are either specifically training for something that requires volume and have plenty of time to do essentially nothing between sessions, or are very young, incompletely employed, and have plenty of time to rest/recover between sessions. Neither describes me, for sure.

I like the "learn a crossfitty sport" suggestion to bring some relevance to your training outside of just being a better CrossFitter, too. Kudos there.

Best of luck.

my score was 454

i did this without warming up, it wasnt a good idea
since i was more inclined to go all the way at the beggining of each tabata but i couldnt keep up that rithm.

I had my legs really sored from last workouts and it got to my squats.

pull ups: 23 18 15 13 10 9 9 9 : 106
push ups: 25 20 17 13 10 11 10 9: 115
sit ups: 17 13 13 12 13 12 13 13: 106
squats: 23 17 15 13 14 13 15 17: 127

i dont remember doing this wod before although i did do some wods similar, so even though i am not glad with my performance it is nevertheless a pr :P

7*1 Thruster:
135-155-165-175-185-195-205 PR could have done more.

Then Tabata, with no PU, too cold outside.
pushup- chest to deck 14 (had 16 going to last set
)
SU hit 11 each time, aim for 13 next.
Squats- hit 15 each time, next time aim of 17.
Good day.
