I'm sort of new to the crossfit world, I'm more of a traditional weights person, so do you complete each exercise before moving to the next or is it a rotation?

Comment #6 - Posted by: Sgt beef cake at August 4, 2012 9:33 PM

From my understanding these are not for time. So this is about as traditional weightlifting as Crossfit gets

my body is still beat from the filthy 50 and my job, have to take another day lol.

Newbies:

Welcome aboard, glad to have you here! I'm no expert, but this isn't exactly my first rodeo either.

This is a strength workout. It is NOT timed and is an example of how we Crossfitters get strong. My good friend Bingo does a much better job of this, but I happened to be up late tonight, so I'll give it a go.

Start out making five attempts at the heaviest strict press you can do. That's a STRICT press...standing, no knee bend, full extension and lockout of the arms at the top. If you have a previously recorded 1RM (one rep max), try and beat it. Take your time between lifts, 3-5 minutes is the range. Did I mention that you should warm up first? No? Please warm up first.

After you record that number, switch to the push press, and finally the push jerk. The number should get at least a little bigger with each lift. Write all of your results down so that you can refer to it next time this comes up.

If you are unfamiliar with these lifts, go to the exercises and demos tab there on the left side of the page for instruction. Better yet, find a certified Crossfit trainer and get some good coaching. Solid form is more important than the weight you lift, don't ever forget that.

Have fun, be safe and I'll be looking forward to seeing your posts in the morning!

Never Quit!

Big monkey versus little monkey? Bee Ess. The beauty of high intensity work outs is that you can not do wrong. I love Xfit and everything that this program stands for but I believe many amateurs get caught up in the numbers and statistics instead of what COACH wants us to strive for. I tell my clients to do what sucks and strive to own what is hard for you. Do what your friends and colleagues will not. (I do not need to explain what hurts...we all know it). Do not be discouraged people. Own the form, then you will progress. Lighter weights and better form equals your progression. God Bless you all. Especially our deployed Troops. Crush. It.

Comment #10 - Posted by: whiskeybravo at August 5, 2012 12:55 AM

Sgt Beef,
Do 5 single reps of a strict press approaching a 1 rep max. Then do 5 3-rep push-presses. Then do 5 5-rep push-jerks. See how heavy you can get on each lift.

Your starting weight on the push-press should probably be somewhere around your ending strict-press. And starting weight for push-jerk should be somewhere around ending weight for push-press.

Felt like I could have gone a fair bit heavier on the press and push press but the jerk was surprisingly challenging due to fatigue.

Day 2 of Cross Fit for me. I'm already hooked. Its been 18 years since I have done any type of Oly lifting so focusing on form as I build strength. Xfit is my new addiction!

Got introduced to it by the teams over here in Afghanistan. Got nothing better to do in my down time while I'm away! Thanks for the rocking site and support!

Sunday musings...

1) Newbies. Well HELLO there PB! Way to step up.

2) Family. Mrs. bingo and I have just returned from the 21st consecutive White family holiday, en masse, on Cape Cod. We went sans progeny for the first time (kids all growed up and unavailable). This is usually fodder for an entire musings, but truthfully it was just a lovely week in the sun with my better 95%.

I'm strangely OK with that.

3) PR. "I think the art of record-breaking is taking out of your body more than it has. The real secret is that I've worked hard." --Sir Roger Bannister

Not a one among us doesn't get this.

4) Community. I showed up in the middle of the Festivus Games yesterday (Mrs. bingo and I ran the AM classes). No trouble finding my people...pretty much everyone there was a CrossFitter, competitor or not. Even less trouble finding my little CrossFit family either; the Comet gang clad in bright red was gathered in communal scream for one of our teens as he pulled a 150 lb. PR in the deadlift (that is NOT a typo).

Been thinking alot about this community thing lately. No surprise that--I think about the CrossFit community every day and have done so for 7 years or thereabouts. I started the day in the micro-community (our family-owned and run Affiliate), spent the afternoon surrounded by folks in the mini-community (a local Affiliate competition/gathering), and finished my day chatting folks in the macro-community (the CrossFit world at large).

I was struck by how much was similar in each of these worlds, the vast commonality, the overwhelming goodwill between and among CrossFitters. It must be so difficult to understand this, to understand and appreciate how natural this feels to CrossFitters, if you are not part of one or all of these communities. There's a circular relationship, if you will, that begins with the freely given "source code" of the CrossFit prescription put into play by a single athlete. As soon as that athlete finds another Crossfitter the community ladder is set (micro->mini->macro), and the athletes look back to HQ to ensure that this process can continue.

The CrossFit summation comes from the bottom up, not the top down.

5) Alarm, fires, and firefighters. "Are they real fires? Or are people just reacting to something? Just because there's an alarm going doesn't mean it's a fire. And I think that people are confusing the two." --Chris Rock.

I'm always looking for the vocabulary to understand difficult concepts, to work my way through hairy situations. This was helpful.

Someone started a fire. In their heart of hearts perhaps they thought this was good. A cooking fire to fuel the growth of those present. A bigger fire, perhaps, to keep a bigger group warm. I'd like to believe this. I want to believe this. I'm need to believe this. Fire is powerful, and a purposeless fire set upon the landscape destroys all within its path. I can understand a fire STARTED, one that was put in the wrong place perhaps, with all control lost. I can't understand a fire that was SET, and so I choose to believe this was not so.

Alarms have been set off by this fire. Is it real? Are we simply reacting to the presence of the fire? Reacting too much? Too soon? I don't think so. I don't think that either we, the folks watching, or the firefighters, are over-reacting. The alarms this time are real. A fire has been started, for whatever reason, and it will neither feed nor bring warmth to those who are gathered. This fire will destroy the landscape if it marches unopposed.

The firefighters have been alerted. They have heard the alarm, indeed saw the fire well before the rest of us were aware it had even started. They are us, just like we know the firefighters we watch battle the wildfires out west are us. They are protecting us, after all, and we get this even if we are watching from afar.

Was the alarm too loud? Too soon? Does it really matter? The fire is raging in the wrong place for the wrong reason. It threatens destruction if allowed to burn. Fires are easier to fight if caught early, and fewer firefighters are hurt in the process. Why was the fire started? That part confuses me. I am saddened by the fire itself, saddened by my confusion about its origin. But unlike Chris Rock there is no doubt that there is a real fire behind that alarm.

I am not confused at all right now. I stand with the firefighters. They are us. They are me. I stand with the leader of the firefighters.

He is one of us.

I'll see you next week...

Comment #25 - Posted by: bingo at August 5, 2012 9:50 AM

Based on the documentaries of the top crossfiters, I think high volume, "big monkey," type training will be the dominant style of training for elite CrossFitters. Our bodies adapt to stimulus, eventually you will need more stimulus to create the same response. This means harder workouts performed more frequently.

Loved driving by Crossfit East Village yesterday and seeing all the athletes running out of their gym with sandbags on their backs. I did 31 Heroes earlier in the day and it brought a huge smile to my face. Just wish the people walking to the Padres game all knew why these athletes were pushing themselves so hard yesterday. Thanks to Crossfit East Village, all the affiliates and all the athletes who did 31 Heroes yesterday.

Just watching the womens's +75kg weightlifting event. I think they need another weight category. It seems you can have women who are 165 lbs...and the next category you have women who are almost 300lbs.

I'm a tall pretty muscular woman at 180 lbs... I don't think I'm abnormally big but if I were a weight lifter, I'd be considered a SUPER HEAVY WEIGHT... that's silly.

Shoulders were quite fatigued by the end. 3 minute rest between each set. My shoulders have always been a real weak spot, but I'm kind of impressed at how they are coming along. Tried my first muscle-up yesterday. I have a long way to go. It was quite laughable.

This compares to top weights of 140/150/155 from September 2009. Presses are hard. I couldn't get 145 past the ear-height sticking point. For the last set of Jerks, I barely got rep 4 up before my triceps just gave up and quit.

Fatigue was definitely setting end by the last few sets of push jerks, especially in the wrists from supporting the weight throughout the workout. Need to invest in some straps/braces. Falling in love with Crossfit more and more after every workout!

M/ 38/ 134 lbs/ 5'-6"
I did a different WOD yesterday:
3 heavy thrusters on the minute for 12 mins
I did a slow and steady warm up, burgener warmup with a lighter 40 lb barbell
45 lbs x 10 (concentrating on bar location, balance, and speed through the middle)
75 lbs x 8 (same concentration)
95 lbs x 8 (good weight balance and wrist and arm positions)
115 lbs x 4
125 lbs x 3

WOD:
125 lbs x 3 for the 1st 6 rounds
135 lbs x 3 for the last 5 rounds
145 lbs x 3 last round
(I wore wrist wraps for all WOD sets. not too tight to minimize and wrist pain later on)
POST WOD:
sets of 3 on each arm of single arm dumbell snatch:
25, 30, 35, 40, 45 lbs
all felt good and not too hard. I pulled a muscle in my lower/ mid back on the WOD, and started to feel it on the snatches.
Went swimming with the kids and Liz for about 1 1/2 hours + gymnastics, etc. after that.

That 110 was the heaviest bar I had ever put my hands on. I only got 4 legit reps, the fifth wouldn't lock at the top.

Great session today. Last rep of 210# push press was close. On 200# push jerk, I missed locking out the first rep, but I was able to get my mind right for 5 more. On the last rep, my right foot slid back just a bit - it was clear my body wanted to split to get under the weight. Backed off for the last set of jerks, I was wiped by that point.

CFWU-1. Shortcut since I slept in. Superman. Row 500m. Shoulder mobility.
95X3 WU
SP:135,140,150,160,170-PR
Went up pretty easy. Bar at clavicle, no lower. Good tight core & butt.
PP: 140,150,160,170,180-Felt like I got on toes too early thereby getting knee too close to toes.
PJ: 135,145,155,170,180 - Last set better than I thought it would be. Good dip helped. Did slight split jerk on last rep just to be safe. Core could still be more rigid overall.

CFWU-3. 12 pushups instead of HSPU 3rd. Superman. Burgener. K to E.

130,140,150,160,165! Went up pretty easy. Happy w/this exercise. Big chest, shoulders back.
135,145,155,165,180! Happy w/dip. Really helped in getting weight up on 3rd rep.
135,145,155,165,175 - 4+1. Disapp on last set. Tech got away from me. Think elbows in too far & chest dropped.
