Post loads to comments.
did 2 rounds of ” Badger” – 15:00. Felt pretty damn slow. I think its allergies. I’ve been tired, sleepy, and can’t breath for shit when I work out. I’m glad the CF games aren’t in Alabama. I think I’ll feel much better in Aromas.
Katherine took some good pictures of the women’s class, but unfortunately did not realize that our site is built for horizontally framed images…. she turned the camera on its side for all of the pics she took. Maybe next time!

I called it after the 3 sets of Push Jerk for time and my wrists.

PP: 145, 155, 165, 175, 175
PJ: 155, 165, 175, X , X
Form got a little off and I hurt my lower back. Didn’t finish last 2 sets of PJ.
I look like steam is going to come out of my ears.

Form sucked because Russell wasn’t there. Leaves a lot of room for improvement for next time.

PJ: 135, 135, 135, 135, 135
My first set of Push Press was basically all arms and no hips, so for the reminder of the workout I had to lower my weight significantly to improve my form. Very frustrating but I think I finally got it.
Did Badger Rx 32:49
PP: Random Girls weight (3,3,3,3,3)
PJ: Random Girls weight (3,3,3,3,3)
Figured out whats causing the shoulder pain, I am some how supporting the bar with my arms and not resting it on my shoulders. The lower range of motion when I do this incorrectly is destroying my shoulders. Fix is hold the bar right, on top of shoulders and transition properly.
SP – 175, 1858, 195, 205x, 205x— really close one the second attempt (PR is 200)
PP – 195, 215, 225, 235, 225
PJ – 225, 185, 225(4), 225(4) — DONE 250(1x), 250(1x), 250(1x) <-just a stoopid meathead challenge between me and Winkles.
–Got totally schooled by Winkles today. Damn that kid is strong! Made me feel like the old man today!…but is was fun pushing each other to the limits.
Congrats to Winkles on a legit 210 strict shoulder press!!! Made it look easy.
PJ: 65-75-85-95 (4)-Fell ass backwards off of platform 🙂
Yeah…so on my fifth PJ at 95, I was getting reallllly sloppy and my form was breaking down. I ended up off balance and fell backwards off of the platform and threw the weight in front of me. Landed on my back on the concrete but managed not to get crushed by the weight. Probably fairly frightening and fairly humorous to watch. Should have stopped and dropped weight but oh well….
Lots of wrist discomfort lowering the weigh during push jerk. Much more comfortable with push press this time around. Push jerk still needs lots of work.
Wrist started hurting during push presses. Wrapping helped slightly. Stopped due to time. On the last 2 sets of push jerks, I rotated my hands about 45 degrees (knuckles to ceiling) to flatten my wrist and take the strain off the joint. Form on push jerk still not optimal. My back just doesn’t like to accept weight thrown overhead. Last set was working on form.
Some day my push jerk and push press will catch up with my press
I ran from matrix and did the cross country course and back at lunch 36:11 . Russell and I think it is a bit less than 5 miles total. Ran pretty hard, not much air in the woods today.
I will be sending pics and video of Russell from the national games in CA!!
Amanda is gone all week, so I’ve got kid duty. Another home workout:
50 Turkish getups w/ 25# db (L=1, R=2, L=3, R=4, …)
30 Turkish getups w/ 25# db
10 Turkish getups w/ 25# db
plus another 50 situps.
BTW, Matrix to start of running trail is almost 1 mile exactly according to google map pedometer, so Craig, your route was 5miles. nice.
from the games site. Are you friggin’ kidding me? FIVE……5…….CINCO????? events on the first day? And then multiple events on Sunday.
This competition is pure grudge match style. This will come down to mental toughness and will power…….not pure physical talent!
It is a good thing that Russell has a massive amounts of both! Things look good for our little ball of hate
The Individual Competition
The Individual competition on Saturday, July 11 will be comprised of five events. All athletes will compete in the events in the same order. At the end of each event, the results will be announced with the relative ranking of each athlete determining their score as described above.
The overall ranking going into each event will determine the reverse starting order for that event. For example, the athletes that win the first event will get to go last in the second event, while the athletes that come in last in the first event must go first in the second. The athletes in the lead (those with the lowest running total) after two events get to go last in the third event. And so forth.
Not all athletes will stay in the competition. After the second event, the bottom ten men and the bottom ten women (those with the most points) will be eliminated from the competition. After the fourth event, the remaining bottom ten men and ten women will be eliminated from the competition. At this point, there will be approximately 55 athletes competing in the final event (for each men and women).
The day will conclude after the fifth event. At that point, the 16 men and 16 women with the lowest total points will be invited to compete on Sunday. If by chance there is a tie for 16th place, the athlete with the best single placement in any of the five events will be awarded the invite.
There will be multiple events on Sunday, and the same scoring by rank will continue and be added to Saturday’s totals. At the end of Sunday’s events, the man and woman with the fewest total points from all events on both days will be crowned Champions.
On Wednesday afternoon 1400 PDT, we will publish the workouts, movement standards, and schedule for Friday’s Affiliate Cup competition.
On Friday morning 0600 PDT, we will publish the workouts, movement standards, and schedule for Saturday’s Individual competitions
