Rest Day? We don’t need no stinking rest day!

Actually, just wanted to work on some of my weak areas… which is like… all of them.   =)

Warm up with a 1k row, 3:56. Sub 4 minute, I’ll take it.

Bench Press:
10×100
8×115
6×135
4×155
8×115

40 pull-ups
20 GHD sit-ups

Cooled down by running a mile, 10:21. That’s 3:38 off my time from yesterday. To bad I can’t keep progressing at that pace. I’d be doing sub 4 minute miles by the weekend!

Michael

Three rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
50 Back Extensions
50 Sit-ups

Missed this one about a week ago and have been saving it to do when the time was right. It’s much too cold to run with any degree of comfort, so I subbed 1000m row for the run. Any excuse to use my row machine.

Hit the stop watch and took off….

Finished the second round and went to look at the stopwatch to see how I was doing and it read: 00:00:00

Crap!!!

Timed the last round and multiplied by 3 for an estimated total of 28:00 but have no idea how acturate that is…

Annie

50-40-30-20 and10 rep rounds of:
Double-unders
Sit-ups

I still can’t do DU’s consistently enough to get through a workout like this. So I subbed singles and did double the number, 100-80-60-40-20 and then did sit-ups in the roman chair. Never really clear if when they say sit-ups if I’m to assume GHD’s or regular old military sit-ups.

Anyway…

10:45

Tomorrow is Saturday!!!

Complete as many rounds in twenty minutes as you can of:
15 Pull-ups
15 Ring push-ups
15 Back Extensions
15 GHD Sit-ups

Sub’d GHD with parallel Roman Chair sit-ups.

4 rnds completed

Wow… what a disappointment… 4 sounds like such a small number…

How about this;

60 pullups, 60 Ring Push-Ups, 60 Bck Ext and 60 Killer Sit-ups= 240 reps in 20 minutes…

That’s more like it.

Rest Day

An old trucker I used to go to church with would always say, “There’s no rest for the wicked.” It just always struck me as peculiar, and now whenever I see a “Rest Day”, I can’t help but think of that quote and that old trucker, especially when I don’t get the rest day because I’m trying to make up for missed WOD’s.

Today is one of those days. It was a Black Friday, not because of the shopping day, but because this WOD nearly made me black out. The time became inconsequential and for the first time besides injury I was afraid I wouldn’t finish.

Sweat AngelI got my first “Sweat Angel” and a pretty cool one if I don’t say so myself. The t-shirt I had on was one of my old USAF squadron shirts with the viper and Air Force wings. Check it out.

Not only was I soaked, but it was about 38° in the garage and the floor was probably much colder. When I laid down, the steam was pouring off my face so thick, I could hardly see the ceiling. Wish I could have got a picture of that.

Mr. Joshua

Five rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
30 Glute-ham sit-ups
250 pound Deadlift, 15 reps

Sub’d GHD’s with parallel roman chair sit-ups and DL was 205# (my body weight)

Five rounds for time of:
25 Inverted Burpees
25 Pull-ups
25 Burpees

We tried to do inverted burpees, but with our hard rubber floors, it just wasn’t possible. We have floor mats coming, but they won’t be here until later this week. So after a quick discussion, we decided to hold this work out for later when the mats come in, maybe on Wednesday as a rest day.

So for tonight we decided to have a little race. We had been working with the kids and were pretty well warmed up, so we decided to do a modified version of the CrossFit Warm Up routine for time.

It went something like this: 3 rounds of each, 10 reps of

Overhead Squat with broomstick
Sit Ups
Back Extensions
Pull Ups
Dips (Bench)

I still have a lot of pain in my lower rib cage from whatever I pulled last week, so for the pull ups, I used a blue band for assistance.

Completed in 9:00 exactly.
