REST DAY!!!! More like active rest.
60 minute Spin Class

What is active rest?
The term “active rest” or “active recovery” applies to training schedules used by athletes. In the recent past, athletes were encouraged to rest completely after a competition or on a day off. But newer research shows that engaging in low-intensity exercise during “rest” is better for maintaining fitness levels. Low-intensity exercise flushes out lactic acid and delivers healing oxygen to the muscles. Any activity that keeps the target heart rate in the 60 – 65% range is low-intensity exercise. Active rest activities are easy recreational movements like going for a bike ride or a hike. Read about active rest from the Guide to Sports Medicine at About.com.

I was in NYC for the weekend, what a gorgeous weekend!  I am so glad that I Crossfit and am in decent shape, otherwise I don't think I would have enjoyed myself as much.  Walking all day, going from 10 am to 10 pm, is rough.  Like I said it's a good thing I Crossfit!

Thanks Mr. B for sharing your life with us.

"The Last Battle" Author Unknown
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

II. I forgot my WOD today, so I used the old standby WOD
"Deck of Card"
Hearts = Hollow Rocks
Diamonds = Pull ups
Spades = Burpees
Clubs = Wall Balls

This is a great WOD and can be used with any 4 movements so it is always different. Just pick a card and do the corresponding movement and number of reps.  Work your way through the deck. It tends to be a long WOD but also a lot of fun because of the randomness.

90 Minutes of Bikram Yoga

Today was a rest day and going to yoga for the first time in months felt great.My flexibility sucks and anything I can do to improve it helps with the muscle and joint soreness. An added benefit for me is that it is nice and warm in the studio.  That in itself is enough to make me feel better especially as the temperature starts to drop and we begin our long cold descent into winter.

What is CrossFit?

What is CrossFit? CrossFit is an effective way to get fit. Anyone can do it. It is a fitness program that combines a wide variety of functional movements into a timed or scored workout. We do pull-ups, squats, push-ups, weightlifting, gymnastics, running, rowing, and a host of other movements. Always varied, always changing, always producing results. Kids, cops, firefighters, soccer moms, Navy SEALS, and grandmas all do CrossFit. In fact, hundreds of thousands worldwide have followed our workouts and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes. .

Proper rowing techniques helped to get through this workout.  The ability to maximize each stroke reduces the number of stroke you need to do.  Check out this video on rowing techniques.

REST DAY!

This is a good article in Rest and Training.  It looks at all aspects of rest, which includes sleep, days off, and nutrition.  I find taking a day off allows me to come back stronger, refreshed and motivated.

Great Fight Gone Bad warm up.  I actually liked this WOD, given that I don't particularly care for FGB and was somewhat dreading this WOD, it is one I would do again.  Not anytime soon but will definitely revisit in the future.

I thought I would be able to do better on this WOD.  But for some reason I could not move the 210#.  I have to say I was a bit disappointed but will definitely try this again.

1st Base - 10  Push ups
2nd Base - 10 Squats
3rd Base - 10 Burpees

This is a nice way to mix up a 20 minute AMRAP and no equipment is needed.  And we got an awesome work out. You can also divide the group into teams and see who gets the most runs in 20 minutes.

Friday morning I instruct at the box I train.  This morning I got in a bit early and completed a 1500m Row and 100 sit ups before folks started trickling in.

This is a great way to mix up an AMRAP.  You have to think about what you are doing and while at first it doesn't seem very challenging it quickly becomes challenging.

45 Minutes Spin

I went to check out the Real Ryder Spinning Studio.  It wasn't bad but really no different than any other spin studio. Loud music, dim lights and the instructor yelling commands.  The bike is suppose to simulate an outdoor ride.  I can't say that's how it felt, however, in order to keep the bike steady, while standing, you are forced to engage your core. I purchased a Group On deal so I will go back a couple more times but am not convinced it is any better than your standard spin class.

09/02/2011

I didn't do this work out but rather taught the class.  The WOD was challenging both physically and mentally.  And to top it off it was a hot, humid morning.  All agreed they were glad they came at 6:00 am as the heat and humidity were definitely a factor. 

WOD: 10 Rounds
100m Run
10 Pull ups
10 Burpees, Yay Burpees!

This is one of those workout that is sometimes more of a mental challenge.  I am not saying it is not physically challenging but it is one that you can easily talk yourself out of completing.  But you have to focus on that little voice in your head whispering, you can do it! Sometimes it hard to hear, but if you listen, YOU CAN DO IT! This is one of the most important lessons I have learned from doing Crossfit over the years, you can overcome any challenge, whether it is in the gym, workplace or home, if you put your mind in the right place and listen to that tiny voice.  And the more you listen, that tiny voice becomes louder and easier to hear.

Rock Taping

I have been wondering about all the taping I have been seeing on CrossFit athletes. What is the purpose and benefits of all this taping? This short video gives a brief explanation and the possible benefits.

09/01/2011

I. 800m Run/500m Row/30 Lunges/20 PVC Rollouts/10 Squats

II. Front Squats 5 -3- 2- 1- 1 (130#)

III. 10 Rounds
5 Power Cleans (75#)
10 Hand release Push ups
5 Toes to Bars

In order to avoid a mutiny, modified the number of Toes to Bar from 10 to 5.  And added a 20 minute cap, which was enough time to complete the WOD.

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

I. 400m Row/100 Jump Ropes/30 Squats/20 PVC Rollouts

II. "Nancy"

I really don't like Nancy.  It's not so much the Overhead Squat but the 400m run for 5 rounds really slows me down.

10 - 1 WOD are challenging but easy to construct. You can take any two, three or more movements and create a challenging work out.

I. 400m Run/150 Jump Ropes/30 Squats/20 PVC Rollouts

During this short 400m run, I have been working on my running form.  I notice that I am able  to run faster with less effort.  Also, running in NB minimus shoes I have found that striking the ground hard impacts my heels, and calves so improving my running form helps to reduce the impact.

Lisbeth's posts are always dead on.  This one "The Barbell Hates Skinny" pretty much sums up how I felt when I started Crossfit.  Overtime and with a lot of hard work I have gotten the results I wanted and learned to love the barbell.  I also know that with continued effort, I will continue to see improvement. Sometimes it is just a few pounds added or a few seconds shaved off a previous time, nonetheless it feels like a great accomplishment.  This is why I Crossfit!

Rest Day!

And boy do I need it.  After yesterday's 100 Pull ups and 100 Jumping Back Squats my body is tired, a day of recovery is definitely in order. A day off allows me to come back the next day rejuvenated and ready for anything that is thrown my way.  I also find this is when I can usually PR.

I am just not that fast with pull ups.  I have been working on the butterfly pull ups, which seems to be easier on my shoulders and a bit faster than the kipping pull up.  Check out this video comparing the two. Tearing the callus on my hands is another concern when doing this many pull ups.  I haven't tried taping but CF Los Angeles posted this video on "How To Tape Your Hands for Pull Ups."

08/11/2011

I like working out at 6 am, it's a great way to start the day. I find that due to the early hour my performance is not always the best usually because my muscles are not warmed up.  A good warm up is essential but I also have to recognize that my performance, whether it be the amount of weight I lift or the speed I go, may not be as good as when I workout later in the day.

Competition Mindset by Robert Hartgrove

I think Robert Hartgrove nailed the true essence of Crossfit when he wrote this:

I think it needs to be said...

Competition is a good thing. It pushes you past comfortable. It allows you to know where you stand.

However, let it be clear who you are competing with every day when you step into the box. If you are competing against the times written down on the whiteboard, or those that will later in the day, then you are selling yourself short. Remember, there are now thousands of whiteboards around the world with times you can't compete with every day.
There is really only one person you should be trying to beat every WOD... yourself. That little voice in your head that keeps demanding that you: slow down, stop and breathe, count that Double Under even though it got caught on your shoes, count that Overhead Squat when you know you didn't go below parallel, or quit the WOD because you just met pukie (nice push through today Jimmy).
You see, being the fastest time or heaviest weight on the whiteboard doesn't make you a better person. Being able to hear that little voice, give it the finger, and get back to work does. One of Crossfit's principals is to provide you with the ability to handle anything that life can throw at you to impede your progress. It was not designed as a daily competition between athletes, that's what the Games are for.
Take today's WOD for example. I am sure that someone will get a faster time today, but even if it stands on top after the last class, I won't think I won. There were too many times during the DUs that the little voice was too convincing, and I listened. Even the last 2 rounds of push ups had me spending long enough on the ground that if someone would have walked into the box, they would have thought it was nap time. I got beat today. I can do better. Not for the whiteboard, but so that I am a better me than when I arrived.
Therefore, use the whiteboard as a useful tool. Just remember it is like the scale or caliper, a medium to measure YOUR progress against yourself. I am not railing on the friendly competition during the WOD to keep focused on why you are pushing through the pain, it is always welcomed. Just make sure that it isn't the goal to beat everyone, because there will always be someone better(minus maybe a Rich Froning or Annie T, this year).


If you can consistently keep beating yourself, you have won everything.

I did not enjoy this swim.  Not sure why, perhaps I was tired or perhaps swimming in the lane next to the wall where the water was slushing around made it more difficult.  Maybe this is just an excuse.  But I must say I quite enjoyed my time in the hot tub.

3 mile Run
Time: 31:05

This was my first run of greater than a mile in forever.  I can't say I felt great but it didn't feel bad either.  I definitely need to build my endurance and stamia in regards to running.  And also speed. My pace wasn't horrible but it wasn't great either.  I have until September to prepare for Dances with Dirt in Hell, Michigan, a 100K team relay in the Pinkney Rec Center.  In past years I was much better prepared, but I still have time.

Double Unders my nemesis.  I know it takes practice, although, Buddy Lee makes it look so easy. I think one of the deteriants to practice is the whip marks on your arms and legs from missing. Anyway check out these video, maybe one of them will click:

Are We Built to Run Barefoot? Check out this New York Times article on this latest craze.

I just purchased a pair of New Balance Minimus Trail Running shoes for Crossfit training.  I love them but can totally identify with this article.  I only run short distances (1 mile or less) in my training and have had to definitely be more conscious of my running form. It is recommended to take it easy at first, so your body (mostly feet and calves) get used to the difference. However, I find them great for all other aspects of my Crossfit training (weight lifting, box jumps, pull ups, squats, etc.)
