Rich Froning's 225 pound Isabel - [video]

Posted by Pukie at February 1, 2014 5:00 PM

I note a trend for this cycle

And then he goes and does that...unreal.

Just got retweeted by CrossFit. Life is good!!

DL: 405#

Row: 3:56

Pull-ups: 29 kipping

No PRs.

I LOVE THESE PR WODS!!! :)

Gavin- your cffb programming reals shows with that deadlift. Very nice!

Wow. Seriously?! Froning is incredible. He will be absolutely phenomenal at the Games this year. Definitely gives me more motivation to hit these WODs.

I have to say that seeing another 1000m Row nearly brought sad tears to my eyes because my upper body is screaming with DOMS. But I suck it up and get through it!

@Gavin, great DL.

Okay, and can every Friday be "Froning Friday?" That video!

The beastliness of Froning banging out 2-2-5 for 3-0 is swa-heet. Good-NESS.

going too hit this one up after work, barbell is so tempting right this second.

love these pr wods

-Cannot do pull-ups.Used assisted pull-up machine for sets of 5 on increasing weight until failure. About 30 reps, only rest to change the weight. Back is definitely the weakest element for me.

I dont have a rower or accesss to one so, do to the warm weather here I decided to substitute swimming. Wednesdays MURPH has really buggered me up. Quads , back, biceps and tri,s are really stiff. Yesterday I swam 350 metres breaststroke. A short rest, but only managed 15 dips on the corner of the verandah. Today I did 120 kg dedlift (306lbs) as a 1 RM. Could have gone a bit heavier but didnt have any more place on the bar for more disks. Then I swam 10 lengths of a 50 metre pool using fins and paddles. It doesnt make it easier. My shoulders and legs were getting murdered. I then rested for 5 minutes and started on the pullups. My right bicep felt like it wanted to tear. As I said before, MURGH really buggered me up. I managed 3 strict pushups. But Im confident, I willget to 20 strict soon.

Friday

OHS: 50kg (PR)

WOD-

Attempt PRs with as much warm-up, ramp-up, and rest between efforts as needed of:

1RM Deadlift

1,000 meter Row

Pull-ups Post load, time, and reps

325lbs with minimum technique deficiency

(NO PR)

Row 1000m /3:25 (PR by 2 seconds from yeste)

Pull ups ( 38 PR by 4)

Deadlift: 285 matched my PR but could not get the next weight up completely.

Row 1000m: 3:33 beat my PR by 2 seconds.

Pull-ups: 14 not sure what my record, but this might be it since I joined crossfit. The one thing i did discover is to not stop for a quick rest so you dont lose your momentum.

339 row

315 x 5 reps DL

27 pullups(27/27/20)

I changed it up today, just too sore. I couldn't do one pull-up today without a band.

Ran 4.1 miles easy effort in 35:21

5 pull-ups EMOM for 10 minutes, single band assist

Deadlift PR from last week: 200 lbs

DL 325# (340# PR)

Pull-ups - 15 (30 PR)

Just didn't have the deadlift in me but felt strong on the row, way better than yesterday when I met Pukie! Grip strength was nonexistent for the pull-ups but my butterfly kip felt nice and smooth. Wonder what we will try to PR tomorrow...

M/28yrs/72"/208#

First Post

Deadlift: 345lbs (PR from when I was more active is 415)

Row: 1000m 3:39 (Baseline PR.... First Attempt) Drag set to 5/6.

Pull-ups: 7 normal... should be more (PR used to be 22). Weak stabilizer muscles/neuromuscular coordination issue. Can't fire the right muscles in the right order. Plan to set up some rings or a bar in home and practice more (before I eat, when I first wake up, leaving the house, etc).

Just started Crossfit. Army but getting ready to become a Civilian again. Best fitness was during last deployment and I am making it a priority again.

Attempted 335 in the dead lift and failed, so I decided to pull off 10 lbs and try 325. After my rest I made the lift and realized I never pulled the 10 lbs. off! So I did get 335.

AHH the effects of psychology!

Murph today, results there. I need a nap now.

DL PR from last week, 265. Best pull-up total I could find was 22 back in Nov, as part of a Lynne.

Gavin, I agree...CFFB is really stoking your strength.

Joe N, great DL...your 1RMs are really getting good.

Bill M, still in awe of your strength-weight ratio

ChuckB, excellent DL PR. Agree, amazing how the mind affects the body. 2 times your body weight is great work.

OldMarine, I just saw your post on Murph day. Stick w/ this crowd, and you WILL be successful.

Curious to see what tomorrow's WOD will be, knowing the majority of us will spend the rest of the day eating junk food while watching the SB.

No rower- 3 min 1/2 mile run

51 kipping pull ups

I haven't commented in a while, but I had to comment on the last two days programming....

QUITE INTERESTING!!!

so I have a question... The answer seems to range depending on who you ask. When doing a 1RM deadlift what is considered 1 rep. Meaning, is your 1RM; lift then drop the weight at the top or is it the full motion; lift the weight then take the weight back down to the ground in the exact same path?

Row: 3:48.8 (came out of the box WAY too fast)

Pullups: 10 kipping (PR)

Nice benchmark for the new year:

345# DL - thought 375# was possible but my layoff was too long

OHS NEED WORK!!

At parents with no weight room..so I improvised..hung the new rings I just bought underneath the rafters of the porch..

Overhead lunges with 45lbs 5x20

ring chinups..slow..all the way dead hang to chest 5x8

Double unders 6x40 (did 40 in 20 seconds)

Ring dips..hands all the way to shoulders 6x10 very slow..

By the way, ring pullups and dips are way harder!!

I don't know my max dips on rings, but I have done 90 on the regular dips a few years ago til it messed my elbow up and now can do 50, but I promise you I can no way do 50 on the rings!!!! at least going allll the way down..its torture!!

question..for maybe Gavin or one of you longtime experts..I am currently focusing on olympic lifting..3 days a week with a coach..how much or how often should I do these WOD without detracting from my strength gains over the next 3 months?

thanks for the help

Dead lift: 315 PR

pull ups: 20

1000m row: 3:29 PR

@Algaroth, oly lifting alone won't make you strong. For example, you can work Oly lifting with sub-optimal weights to perfect your form, and you won't get much stronger. You really need to be lifting weights that are 85%+ of your 1RM to gain strength. Long met cons will detract from your strength, so it's up to you to find a happy medium between strength and metabolic conditioning. Depends on what your goals are and what you are training for.

Did some heavy DL work before yesterday's WOD, so skipping today. Did this instead:

Partner WOD

100/exercise - Alt sets of 10 w/ partner

Airsquat

Sit-up

HR push-up

Pullup

Also, I have a newbie question for anyone willing to lend some advice: As I am so new to rowing, and you all are killing these row times, what damper setting do you recommend for someone like me? I used "6" the last 2 times... not sure if that's right or not. Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated!! :-)
