    adam p – even if jase/stef forgot I didn’t ..happy birthday for tuesday

    I like weights. You know where you stand with them. Well, sometimes you’re lying under them, trying not to let them crush you, but you see, you KNOW they’d crush you if they could. There’s honesty.β€”T. Campbell

    I slept through my alarm 😦 😦 😦 Sorry Stef, and anyone who may have wanted my place in the 0530 WOD this morning. I’m majorly bummed out, because I love Power Cleans and was planning to do the pull ups unassisted…… next time, I guess.

    Happy Birthday, Adam!! Hope you have an awesome day πŸ™‚

    WOD
    10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 rep rounds for time of:
    Power Clean – 34kg
    Pull Ups – Blue band

    Use a load that is 75% or your Power Clean 3RM.

    I forgot to check my time but I think it was around 11 minutes…
    Loved this WOD and I was so pleased that I got a PB in the~3RM press. I tried this weight last week and didn’t make it!

    Also a BIG congratulations to Mandy who completed the WOD as prescribed! Well done on those pull ups! πŸ™‚

  4. Lisa said

    Oh, just read the first 2 posts;

    Poor you Michelle, I hate it when I sleep through my alarm 😦
    You would love this WOD so make sure you do it when you get some time..

    Happy birthday Adam πŸ™‚

  5. gus said

    WU – 100m row. mobility, CFWU

    Strength – 3 x 60/65/67.5kg, 10/7/4 x 50 kg

    WOD – 65kg PC, pull ups “free” – 13:34

    This was tougher than I thought. PC hit my general conditioinng more than HPC. Think the weight was abt right all PC unbroken apart fm a crappy last rep on the 7’s which Stef (quite rightly) made me redo

  7. Amanda said

    I did my first “as prescribed” WOD today – WHOO!

    Warm Up –
    1000m row
    Mobility
    1 x CFWU

    Press
    3-3-3 reps
    25kg-30kg-32.5kg
    Use ascending sets
    then
    10-7-4 reps
    22.5kg

    32.5kg is my PB, which I reached last week – only just. So this round I felt much stronger. Who knows – maybe next time I will try 35.

    WOD – As prescribed
    10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
    Power Clean – 30kg
    Pull Ups – unassisted

    Time: 11:59 – I think, need to double check.

    I enjoyed the power cleans today, my elbows are getting quicker. Although I think its more in the head than the elbows for me!!

  8. Tereena said

    Happy happy birthday Adam!!

    And congrats Amanda, well done:)

  9. The Cell said

    Everybody really worked hard this morning! Proud of your immense technical improvements and proud of your ability to persevere through fatigue to still complete solid reps! Amanda; solid effort As Rx’d, your pull ups are jumping through the roof! Tereena; 55 reps of pull ups, that is leaps and bounds of where you were not too long ago!

    There is nothing more important than technique, it lays the foundations for success, it lays foundations for increased and maximum levels of speed, power, strength and other KPI’s! Make no mistake work capacity is good, but if the movement is not being fulfilled to maximum range and is not technically sound, not only is it a mute movement, you will burn out super quick! As efficiency is not present.

    Look at it this way, if you are competing in a 400m sprint and only sprint 367m of it, you have not completed your task. It is void. If you are power cleaning and do not extend your legs and open your hips at the top of the movement to execute a full range of motion, the rep is void, if you continue to repeat this over many repetitions, the workout then becomes void… simple as that…

  10. Jase said

    Great effort everyone this morning!! It’s awesome to see PB’s, WOD’s as rx’d and the efforts of those who have made such massive improvements.

    I totally concur with Stef’s comments about form. It is paramount. No point being fast if you only did half reps and cheated yourself on you ROM. We shoot first for sound mechanics, then consistency in the performance of the movements, then and only then should intensity come.

    Oh and Andrew, we didn’t forget Adams birthday. Unfortunately there’s just too many these days to put a post up for everyones
    birthday. We remember it in other ways.

    Lunchtime:

    6km run along the east perth foreshore.

    Time = 34min

    I had 2 goals with this run today:
    1. To run faster than I usually do
    2. To complete the run without stopping to drink

    I covered the first 3km in about 15min, feeling pretty good, then developed a horrible stitch which plagued me the rest of the way and slowed me down significantly – I blame the easter eggs.

    It was really nice to run without carrying a water bottle πŸ™‚

  17. Pete Yeates said

    Scott, that looks F#(king MINT, how long will it take to climb?

    Stef – as requested, a link to Handstand wall runs: I found these much harder than anticipated, so naturally they are going to be a regular part of my training from now on.

    WOD
    10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 rep rounds for time of:

    Back to posting now that I am finally getting over the effects of the virus that I had

    Todays sessions were squad swim covered 3000m swimming moderate, fast, drills and drafting practice good session.

    PM was 7 x 1 deadlift where I managed a PB
    60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 87.5kg and more importantly I felt strong in every lift and did toy with the idea of trying 90kg but thought that I shouldn’t push my luck with all the muscle tightening issues I am currently experiencing

  26. michelle said

    pm:

    Press:
    3-3-3 @ 27.5-32.5-36kg

    then

    Deep bar dips, yellow band
