Ahh ****.

Skipping for distance? Really? Can't you just say you were straining under a 400lb clean or something?

You have surgery scheduled?

The weight is slowly coming off and I'm getting stronger every week. I'm definitely happy with my progress. I feel like I wasted all those years in the gym doing pointless routines that don't benefit my everyday life in any way. lol
Stance looks a bit wide to me
I'd like to see less rounding in your lumbar curve and I think your shoulders are starting too far behind the bar, which is likely leading to the early hip rise... check out how your shoulders come forward to a better position after that hip rise.

Hips and shoulders should rise together until about the knees.

Yeah, that seems to be the feedback I'm getting from a few friends with more experience than myself. I think i need to not hold onto the bar so long before lifting. I have a tendency to round my back when I do so and my coach scolds me every time.

I appreciate the advice and encouragement from you all.

Did my first 'Jeremy' today and holy crap, I am in pain. Now I know why everybody hates Burpees so much and honestly, the last set took every ounce of mental power that I had.

Oh btw, I now know what everybody meant when you said that it was addicting. With all the pain, I just can't wait for the next time and it feels great pushing past that point where you normally would quit.

Yeah, you wind up hoping that the next workout just doesn't use the same muscles

The problem is that for some reason, I only manage to go in days where we do squats so in 6 classes, I have worked on squats 6 times now

Last Night:

Mobility/Skill: Back Squats 5x5
225 LB
250 LB
265 LB
275 LB
280 LB

(I made sure to go real slow with the squats because I have a tendency to lift my heels on the way up)

5 Rounds For Time

Bench Press- 175 LB
Sprint- 100M uphill
KB Snatch- 6 per arm (forgot the weight)

Time was 7:46 which was right in the middle. I could have pushed myself a bit more but I don't want to go too hard since I might have shin splints. I gotta figure out how to get rid of them. Sneakers are fairly new Adidas ClimaCool's that I use strictly for training, no casual use. I really think I have poor form when running. I need to work on that.

those splints will go away with time....not a whole lot you can do besides stretching them out some.

3) Check how tight your shoes are when you're running. Too tight and it restricts the movement of the tendons on the top of your foot, which go up to your shin. When they're restricted, they pull off your shin.

Also, www.mobilitywod.com is searchable. He's gotta have something good there.
It blended in with the rest of my post, I guess.

Thanks, Damn Yankee. I've heard of people icing down their shins. I'll try adjusting my laces to see if it helps. Someone told me stretching their calf out regularly helped with the shin splints.

Donzo, you might also try "minimalist" type shoes if you're inclined or curious. When I was in school ages ago, I used to run track and get shin splints all of the time. In retrospect, it was partly the shoes, partly the training and partly me. (DY gave some good tips, I don't have any other than those aside from rest and not antagonizing the injury)

Generally, shin splints are from muscle training inbalances in your lower legs. Sometimes modern shoes protect us from more than they should and reinforce bad behavior.

did "Carse" yesterday:

21-18-15-12-9-6-3 reps for time of:
95 pound Squat clean
Double-under
185 pound Deadlift
24" Box jump
Begin each round with a 50 meter Bear crawl.


took me 51:36. which I wasnt really happy with.....getting back into the swing of things after missing 2 days a week for the last month. still though, this is an awesome, yet tough as heck workout. doing the bear crawl and then going to squat cleans was what was really the time killer.

Today's WOD will suck...I'm thinking of getting out of it:

Quote:
Daddy Long Legs

For time:

150 "double pump" wallballs (you must do a squat after throwing the ball and be done before catching the ball.

If you drop the ball or "rest" you must do 5 burpees before starting again.

Theres a CrossFit affiliate gym 4 blocks from my house. Everytime I drive by there and want to stop in, Im intimidated by the men and women beasting out there lol. I soooo want to do this. Im going to start on some of the excercises you can do at home. But does anyone recommend any lifting regiments for a starter? I have never lifted really but have decent upper body strength. Im going to need a scaled suggestion. I know the 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 to start out. But is that 1 rep, 7 sets of lifting excercises like curls. Then repeat the 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 for say triceps? Is there a specific order of lifting excercises/motions I should be doing?

Sorry for the super noob questions. Ive never really worked out hardcore or had a set regiment due to hardcore asthma I used to have. Its since gotten way better than when I was a kid, but still there. I still play soccer, go jogging, etc. But I NEED something more. I read through a whole bunch of pages, but wasnt able to get through all 93 lol. HELP! Thanks!

Highly recommend you just swallow your nerves and hit the CF gym. Almost everyone in the community is welcoming and supportive, especially of beginners. You'll get close guidance and information as well as a trained eye watching you when you lift.

CF doesn't generally do targeted lifting, like triceps or curls. It's about Olympic lifting which utilizes multiple muscle groups for the movement. Crossfit.com has workouts as well as explanations of all the moves.

But again... go to the gym!

don't be scared and just walk in there!!!! seriously, we have tons of ripped guys and girls in my box but also a lot of people that are out of shape. what i found is that ALL Of them are nice and helpful and they will push you to get better. as for the scaling, don't worry about it, the coach will help you do what is best for you if you tell them your goals and weaknesses.

just to add, the guy that helped me the most so far, other than my great coach, has been doing CF for a few years now and trust me, he is a beast. since the first class, he has been giving me pointers, pushing me to finish and just give me words of encouragements. the beauty of CF is the community and it doesn't matter if you have been doing it for years or days, everybody is part of the same thing.
