Overhead swings.

Todays WOD:



I didn't hang around for it since i didn't want to do thrusters with my knee pain. I posted on the crossfit injury boards about it.

Went down before the WOD to do some mobility work and practiced double unders. Got my first one w/ being able to carry on skipping afterwards then got 7 in a fashion of single, single, single, double repeat which felt good considering i couldn't even skip 4 weeks ago. Learning DUs though does seem like doing crossfit for the sakes of crossfit, not sure how they could overlap to much else.

Re: Crossfit Log

Yea Leeds.

Thursday: bunch of mobility as per usual. Practised push press for 3 sets of 5 at 40kg, my strict press is at 3 x 5 x 47.5 so still a lot of room for improvement.

I wanted to do that WOD I posted but they put another option on the white board that a lot of UK affiliates were syncing together to do.

Start with 1 burpee then row as far as possible until the clock hits 1 minute, then do 2 burpees, back to rowing as far as possible, 3 burpees at 2 mins, back to rowing and so on. The goal is to row 2km before the burpees beat you by taking up your whole minute of time. If that happens you take your distance rowed. Only the gym owner of our affiliate completed it at dead on 13 minutes. Myself and a handful of others got 1600m, one person got 1850m. Going to revisit this workout in 2 months.

Today: Deadlift for warms up then 5 x 1 x 120kg.

The 2nd WOD contained a bunch of squat positions so I avoided them for my knees sake. The 1st WOD was 1 mil run, which i did in 5:58. That should have been 10 seconds faster with better splits but i've never done a timed mile before. I was surprised at how difficult it was to break 6 min/mile esp since I have a goal of a sub 18 3 mile. I also have the London Marathon in April and the gym record for the mile is a shockingly high 5:45 so will add in low intensity running to pick all these 3 off.

Re: Crossfit Log

the burpee/row thing sounds fun... I think I would be able to do 400m or something like that

It was easily the worst I've felt from exercise in a long time. I was holding back being sick on the last set of burpees. For about 2 rounds before I finished I was in eyes closed just keep moving mode.

FWIW you need hold about a 1:45/500m pace with fast burpees to finish it. I think you'd get a lot more than 400m with the first 4 rounds alone you'd be rowing at least 2:20/500m pace for about 3.5 minutes so there's 760 metres, after that it gets exponentially harder every round though. I'm sure smileyEH, Jaysick, J Brown etc would have no trouble in finishing though.

Here's the run WOD and the following WOD i skipped out on:


SU = Single Unders but double the required amount. It was switched to being a partner WOD so it was 3 minutes rest (while your partner did the round) rather than 1 minute. Still 5 rounds each.

The gym's doing fight gone bad today but i had a long degen poker session so will be doing that thursday. Looking forward to doing a bench mark WOD.

Re: Crossfit Log

Today's WOD:


First time doing sumo deadlifts. Weights (kg) were 40 60 80 100 100.

Scaled the WOD down to 90kg and single unders. This WOD was A LOT of fun. Loved doing touch and go deadlifts. It felt like I kept solid form throughout.

Surprisingly it was the press ups that slowed me down. For my rounds of press ups I did 15, 15, 8 and 7, 5 and 5 and 5, and then on my final round it was 4 3 3 and then just singles to get the last 5 out. I was star fished out on the floor waiting for my forearms to rejuvenate.

I'm getting more double unders now. I can go somewhat unbroken doing 3 x singles then double, repeat. My jumping style is inefficient I hear though, so will work on that once I can go unbroken.

I want to start greasing the groove on press ups, air squats, pull ups, lunges w/ weight overhead.

On top of that I still need to practice Olympic lifts. And more mobility stuff and more gymnastics stuff, handstand press ups and muscle ups are still milestones i'd like to get. All this makes it easy to spend 2 hours in the gym for a < 10 minute WOD but i enjoy being there, making progression and seeing what's happening.

Re: Crossfit Log

is it common to refer to push ups as press ups?

Re: Crossfit Log

Yes old chap, it's press up in the Queen's English.

Today's WOD:


Pretty easy WOD, we got 14 rounds + 2 burpees. Hard to get more rounds without being very good at pushing the kettlebell down from the top. I practiced power cleans rather than doing The Bear as I can't squat with my knee. It's getting worse and starting to hurt in general, i have a physio session on Monday w/ a physio for the Great British weight lifting squad, so hoping for better advice than 'lol what? just don't squat.'

If it doesn't hurt doing wall balls then it's Fight Gone Bad WOD tomorrow.

Re: Crossfit Log

Did Fight Gone Bad got a measly 245 reps. Wall balls and Box Jumps are the stations to rack up points but being a super weak squatter meant the first round of wall balls killed me right away.

1 minute per station, 3 rounds, 1 minute rest between rounds:

Wall-ball: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull: 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump: 20″ box (Reps)
Push-press: 75 pounds (Reps)
Row: calories (Calories)
