is there a sub for back extensions?

Comment #1 - Posted by: Daniel at December 22, 2012 5:16 PM

Could rowing be an acceptable sub for the run? It's winter up here in Montreal and the snow makes it tough!

Comment #2 - Posted by: Jess at December 22, 2012 5:30 PM

Sub superman's for back extensions

Comment #3 - Posted by: Akb at December 22, 2012 6:05 PM

Jess, I am in Ottawa, i do sub row on extreme days, but I love the Icers, they wrap over your shoes no slip, brave the cold, you can do it!

25:30 rxd
An almost 7 min improvement. Approx. 32 min last time. Guess this crazy thing called crossfit actually works. Was also a lot easier this time should have pushed harder on the runs.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Hollyhog at December 22, 2012 6:48 PM

Ab mats are backwards. I always faced them that way too before I went to the level 1 cert- they should def face the writing the opposite way on those things! Great workout either way!

Am I wrong or were they doing hip extensions in the video, and not back extension?

Comment #9 - Posted by: JT at December 22, 2012 10:19 PM

#9 pretty much the same thing. superman extensions back extensions hip extensions. same thing different name. Just use the one that develops your core the most

Comment #10 - Posted by: Jose m/27/189/5'11" at December 22, 2012 10:45 PM

My first CrossFit wod back in May 08. Great stuff!

Before I bought my bench, I like subbing good mornings or supermans. Personally, I liked good mornings better...

#9 I used to find that annoying. However, if you can't beat em join em, I say. Hip extension = back extension. (Regardless what the demo says!)

Comment #18 - Posted by: Ginge at December 23, 2012 5:41 AM

RX 25:20. Started with 6:30 mile, and I did it on treadmill which is a sub to afghan being rainy and cold. Have nothing to compare since I just started crossfit like 2 weeks ago. This workout was harsh. I do have a question I tried numerous position on the GHD equipment for back extensions, but my thighs kept hurting because of tension or pressure, what am I doing wrong?

Comment #19 - Posted by: John Ramos III at December 23, 2012 5:42 AM

I have a general question on sequencing the workouts.
I've dabbled with Crossfit, and did CFE last year in prep for a run, but I'm still learning the process.
Can you take days out of order?
For example, I follow 1 week trailing, so todays workout would be "Tabata This" from last Sunday.
With family commitments it would be easier to sub tomorrow's squat workout today since I can do everything on today's workout at home and need the gym for the squat/GHDthing. Thus I'd like to go to the gym today and do Tabata This tomorrow.
Is that kind of flopping kosher?

Comment #20 - Posted by: Ryan Cook at December 23, 2012 6:38 AM

19:45 but did 30 reps each rnd and had to do back ext over a Swiss ball...def easier.

Not bad considering I just got back to it after 6 months off due to a knee injury and weighing 20 pounds heavier (not in a good way) than the last time I did this WoD. It feels good to be back at it!

Sunday musings...

1) Ninjabread Men. The world's coolest cookie cutters!

2) Back-up QB. The most popular player on every losing team in football.

3) Role-player. Every team has a structure of sorts. In every sport success depends on players filling certain specific roles, the sum of which hopefully leads to success. It is only the most unusual team, either a "one-off" or that most special of teams that is the harbinger of a truly new paradigm, that doesn't have all of the same pieces parts in the same place doing the same things. Whether tradition-bound or cutting edge, though, the roles assigned and accepted on a team are designed with only one thing in mind: winning.

We all play on a team of sorts, one we call The Family. Just like team sports there are roles assigned in The Family, and just like a team sport the role you play is likely to be one in which you are locked for your entire "career". The difference, of course, is that the assignation of roles and the execution of those roles in The Family have absolutely no association with the pursuit of winning. Odd, huh? But essentially true.

Other goals certainly apply, other outcomes. Peace, or maybe detente. Quiet, or maybe just calm. Loud, boisterous, the (outward) picture of success. At various points in the "season" the roles assigned and played may actually produce something that DOES look like winning. That's really cool.

The other difference between team and The Family is that the players on the team are ever changing, added and subtracted as necessary to continue winning, and any given player may actually take on a different role in this pursuit of victory. Not in The Family, though. Ooooooh no, not there. No, the role you've been assigned never, ever changes. Nor does it change for anyone else until someone is retired forever.

It took me years--many years-- and an observant Mrs. bingo pointing this out, before this sunk in. There is no evolution, no paradigm shift, no revolutionary coach or system on the way when you go home this Christmas. Everything will be the same, a little Groundhog Day for the Holiday. The team will not have changed and every role player will play the same role.

Even you.

4) Other. The original "word" for this thought was to be "enemy", but the more I thought about it the less that seemed to apply. You see, "enemy" is really a very simple concept, one that is just too black-and-white in this world of grey in which we live. An enemy is nothing more or less than someone who has openly declared intent to do you harm. Nothing too very ambiguous about that.

This is very different from a person who dislikes you, or someone you dislike. It's fundamentally different from someone who is angry at you. These folks can simply be ignored; they can be consigned to the trash heap of indifference. I've been known to say that it's perfectly OK to make an enemy as long as you've done it on purpose so that you can assess the ramifications beforehand. Re-thinking this in light of a more accurate definition of "enemy" probably changes my tactical advise to "it's OK to make someone angry at you."

This is important today as we traverse our lives with our "situational awareness goggles" on high, important when we identify someone who is better described as "other" as "enemy" or "possible enemy". By any measure we actually live in a world which is incredibly safe. We are not surrounded by legions of enemies but rather by "others", people who stand apart for one reason or another as different. Maybe even odd.

If we view our world as one which is inhabited by only friends or enemies we are at risk to categorize these "standouts" as dangerous until proven otherwise, all data to the contrary. We are at risk to extrapolate the actions of one "other" to all, even those who share nothing with those villains besides their "otherness". Is this really necessary?

Frankly, my worldview as a young man was very narrow, my willingness to even let the "others" be something less than zero. No, "others" were to be feared or ridiculed; they were certainly not meant to be ignored, let alone accepted. Now? Most of the "others" are just varying degrees of different, nothing more. Pick a number...99point whatever % are just that and will never be anything more diabolical or dangerous than a friend might be. They will never be an enemy, no matter how much their "otherness" sets us apart.

For most of us the world is filled with friends and others. We just don't have that many enemies known or yet to be discovered. I do not advocate replacing our "situational awareness goggles" with "pollyanna specs", but we really don't need to have the setting on "high alert". The risk of the false positive, the risk of identifying an "other" as an enemy is very, very high because there really are very, very few real enemies. Very few people who mean you, or anyone, true harm.

Don't let the cacophony resulting from the rare sighting of an enemy, of evil, blind you to the fact that those who will not be your friends are almost always just "others."

I'll see you next week...

50min or so stop watch stopped on me, this one took FOREVER. Legs and core were like jello after skiing for 12hr straight Friday and Saturday and then driving 6hrs to get home. Any other Michiganders here know when Mt. Bohemia opens? The border guys are probably starting to wonder why I go to Canada every weekend. Website says early January but I haven't been up there to know what the weather is like.

CFWU-2. Just OHS & upper body & extensive DU work to get them corrected. Burgener WU.
23:09
Very disapp. Didn't do well on any part. Back ext prob not abnormally bad. Situps were tough. Runs too slow. Didn't push hard on any part. Hope part of problem due to cold weather & more than likely bad diet around Holidays.
