Awesome Chris, didn't realize you shot this. It was a good time down there
WoW !!! Keep it up Chris !
Nurse Julie :)
Where can i buy one of those captain america tshirts? Are they a Hotshots 19 fundraiser shirt?
If you have time go and check Crossfit 502 in Guatemala city they have a nice box.
If youre in El Salvador drop by the local affiliate 1389 CrossFit...today "James" from Nor Cal CrossFit dropped by.
If you make it to San Pedro Sula, Honduras, be sure to pay us a visit at CF SPS!
Solid work all around, Dr. Chris.
If I am doing 3 days on, 1 day off and my off day was yesterday, should I rest one more day or do yesterday's roney training?
Shoulder press 1-1-1-1-1 reps
Push press 3-3-3-3-3 reps
Push Jerk 5-5-5-5-5 reps
@Kamil, easiest thing to do is to rest so you will be on schedule with main site.
Rest is good, not bad.
Fantastic, this a TRUE hero. More of this please!
Couldn't rest today, did Angie - 25:03...come check out U.S. Army Crossfit on FB!
this was a very welcome rest day. Can't say my nutrition was optimal, but I'll fix that when work settles down.
@ Mr. Jacobs #13
Perhaps I am misinterpreting your message, but it seems to me you are implicating that those individuals from all of the Hero workouts are somehow not TRUE heroes when measured up to this surgeon.
If I am wrong please disregard the following.
Is giving your life in another nation attempting to instill some sort of democratic order, which protects the rights of all citizens, some how less heroic than restoring vision.
Decided to do a squat day.
Playa del Carmen, MX
What I have to do to be able to increase the weight of my WOD? Actually I am 1/2 W of the prescription.
@frederic, you have to do a dedicated strength program. If you have never done so, then you can see some amazing gains from a linear strength program. I do CrossFit football's amateur strength program. It has me adding the following each week:
Back squat 10 pounds
Deadlift 10 pounds
Shoulder press 2.5 pounds
Power clean 2.5 pounds
Bench press 2.5 pounds
So in a month you'll have added 30 pounds to your squat, for example. These linear gains last about 20 weeks before it becomes difficult to advance.
@ Senor Frederic,
Old Norte Americano expression..."Yard by yard it is hard (difficult)...but inch by inch it's a cinch (easy)" By that I mean I have found if each time the WOD comes up again you try to add just 5 lbs or 2.2 kilos you will improve greatly. If you want to accelerate your progress...give up sugar & caffeine, eat paleo or zone (your choice) and make sure you get enough rest. It is a life style change...no magic...but it works like magic!
Decided to do a squat day.
I also decided to squat today. I have named this squat workout "Squat Ladder" Time around 8:30
Add weight, only rest is when you add weight maybe around 5-8 secs how ever long it took me to add weight then the round starts.
Then start back down taking weight off each round! Only rest you get is when you change weight!
About 8:30 squat workout
@Ian comment 19
thanks for your comments, I'm not eating Paleo but close, it will be hard to give up caffeine but I reduce it to 2 cups a day. I rest 2 day a Week on Thursday and Saturday. I follow the wods of crossfit.com and work out during lunch time at the Gym of the hotel I work.
I will increase slowly the W as you recommend and still working.
LOVE the photo of the Ophthalmologist standing on his hands! What a WONDERFUL display of heroism, VOLUNTEERING his surgical skills to restore sight to those in need. Someone who spent many years assisting Ophthalmologists in the field, this man deserves are HUGE pat on the back!
People must remember HERO'S come in ALL forms.
To the Ophthalmologist: YOU are the HERO to those you have returned sight too!
A R My Snellen Chart to you!
