Rest day in Oakland, so we did tabata something else34/92/82/83 for a 291Got a lesson on kipping pull-ups beforehand, which helped, although still needs work.My friend killed me on pull-ups and squats, ended up beating me by 14 reps.

I've been eating horribly since I left. Glorious junk food. Chips, tacos, pizza, hamburgers, soon... a California style burrito. My insides feel toxic but a vacation is a vacation.

So there is going to be class on Sunday?

Erik- Jacinto and Shane will be holding down the fort this weekend so your bi-coastal crossfit challenge is still doable.

Wall Ball 10lbs: 30 24 21 15Cleans 45lbs: 3 6 5 6(started out with tall but switched to regular cleans after 2nd rep)Push Press 2x10lb DB: 17 16 15 15Total: 173

I'd been struggling with unexplained high blood sugars since Tuesday AM, but after this WOD, they are back to normal again. w00.

I want to try tall cleans again!

bfastprobioticleftover lamb (damn I love lamb), chicken sausage and an egg white. salad of gai lan, fennel and grape tomatoes.


Don't have my numbers but they totaled 140 and broke down to something like:

Tall Cleans @ 55#: 13/8/8P Press w/2 20# dbs: 15/12/12Wall ball @ 10#: 17/14/15

tall cleans are hard, but very useful!

David - nice work!! I always love to see your snatch. sigh, it'll never get old.

Erik - I am jealous of the deliciousness in which you are indulging. You should be well fueled for Sunday.

May 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMargie
oh whoops i forgot the 4th set of numbers, oh well.

Bethany - wall balls - sick!! good work.

is mark the guy with the goatee? he put a U-lock on my bike cause i locked it to the fence then yelled at me about how i can't do it.... some community center... that guy bugs me somthin' fierce.

Zak,Regarding post workout nutrition, Yams and some protein would ideal. You'll better absorb a starchy tuber than fructose PWO. Margie is right, humans do not require carbohydrates to survive. As long as protein, fats, vitamins and minerals are presnt the body can take care of everything else. Going extremely low carb will hurt your performance in CrossFit though.

Bottom line:Eat your vegetables.

It's official! I will be temporarily jobless in mid to late June. Who knows what my future holds.
May 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAJtheTrainer
I forsee burpees in your future, AJ.

May 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDavid South Brooklyn
Actually I intended to start a new powerlifting cycle today but ended up in doing this:

10-9-8...3-2-1 reps of Deadlifts @ 225 lbs and Push ups. (16:12 minutes)

I guess I've to consider myself CF-addicted. Many thanks for the great experience.

Breakfast: 2 cups oatmeal

Andy as in Hadel? Hey hey!! I love that we've got international posting!

Great work Andy.
May 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMargie
Yeah Andy!! Drink that CrossFit kool aid!!

(Do they have kool aid in Germany???)
May 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDavid South Brooklyn
way to go Andy!!
May 29, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterjacinto
Hey Andy,

It's great hearing you're keeping it up. Tomorrow (Friday) the workout of the day on the main site is Crossfit Total, another fun wod. Needless to say it involves max deadlifts.

Also Margie, tonight... hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and nuts... and a cherry on top... so good.
May 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterErik K.
Breakfast - Marble Crueller.

David - Do you remember Joe Hong? He works out in my gym at Bear Stearns. He is in your scrapbook doing kettlebells. He does the main site WOD like it's his duty.
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAJtheTrainer
I'm thinking about doing the Crossfit Total WOD from the main site today at the gym. A little nervous about not being able to bail though. Any chance we're doing a heavy lifting WOD tomorrow morning?
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBethany
David - That was a nice snatch. The ladies should post a video of their snatches.
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAJ
Started to do the CFTotal today.

Did the Back Squats:

210, 215, 220

THEN I was interrupted and screwed up big time by a know it all.

I got so mad that I left the gym and didn't finish.

SO the total will have to wait. Today was a back squat day >:(

May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAllisonNYC
Allison that sucks!! How frustrating.

bfastprobiotic2 oz lox, 1 egg white, flax cracker, 1 oz avocado, salad of mizuna, couple grapes.

lacked the lick. Where was my hot fudge sundae?
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMargie
Disappointing total...215/125/325 for a 665

Nowhere near my PR on either press or deadlifts and I'm still pretty weak on back squats.

May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterErik K.

"I've been eating horribly since I left. Glorious junk food. Chips, tacos, pizza, hamburgers, soon... a California style burrito. My insides feel toxic but a vacation is a vacation."

May have something to do with it :)
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDavid South Brooklyn
Hey David,

Yeah, I thought about that also, but then decided to just blame it on the altitude.
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterErik K.
By the way -

GOOD LUCK to Jeremy at the Games tomorrow!!!!

David - have fun ref-ing. Can't wait to hear all about it!
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMargie

My back squat is the same as Davids!

You better start squatting darling!

Margie- I'm sending David something to give to you ;) Get ready for a little laugh!

Jeremy- You're going to kill it. Give me a ring and let me know how it's going .Say hello to Miss Karen Douglas for me a.k.a. Spider Chick. She'll the the hot little blonde kicking the guys butts and drooling over them at the same time.
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAllisonNYC
oh goody!! a present from Allison, I am excited.

May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMargie
On a high note:82 lb OHS with the clean grip. 3 lbs shy of my OHS 1RM. I could have gone higher had I not had to clean it, jerk it, and then ohs. Plus, some a-hole was telling me to keep it down because I was dropping the weights.

On a low note:

While I was practicing my kipping pullups, a-hole #2 came up to me to give me some unsolicited advice.

a-hole #2: Uhhh, you know, you really should try out the assisted pullup machine because you're going to kill your shoulders doing what you're doing.

Then he walked back to the dumbbells to work on his bi's and tri's.

I bet I get more unsolicited advice from dudes with rounded backs and quarter squats than all y'all!
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterxuan mai
First CFT, loved it.

195 back squat110 shoulder press265 dead lift

= 570

My back squat is pretty weak, but this is my first heavy attempt in many many years. Press wasn't a surprise, dead lift was a PR by 10#.

Looking forward to more. I was pumped to dead lift a weight I couldn't budge a two weeks ago.
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAdam
Thank you all for the warm welcome on the blog.

Although my back was still pretty sore from yesterday I did the CF total as Erik/Mr. Deadlift recommended.


I'm sure you will squat way more weight soon, Erik. Your deadlifts show you have a solid base of strength.

David, no kool aid in Germany. We have beer...

Margie, I've to apologize. Please shoot me an email.
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAndy
Tonight I reluctantly returned to my gym for the first time in something like 3 months. They "remodeled" and filled it chock full of crappy equipment. I could barely find room to deadlift and my heart wasn't really in it, but here are my CFT numbers anyway:

BS - 100SP - 50Deadlift - 145Total: 295

Deadlift was surprisingly far from my PR of 160 - I couldn't get 155 off the ground and the smallest plates there are 5 pounds. :(

May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBethany
Oops, my math was off - BS was actually 105, so my first CFT is 300.
May 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBethany
beginner class is still on at 11am tomorrow, right?
May 31, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKent
Class is on, Kent! Jeremy and I are in Albany for the East Coast CF Challenge but Shane and Jacinto will be there to run it.

Bethany, as i've learned today, moving weight is a LOT easier when there are ~25 people watching you and cheering you on. You'll break 160 soon enough.

Nice Total Andy!!!
