    5×5 Back Squat


    This was difficult. I Still find it funny that I was doing this entire workout at 315 three months ago. My Fran time was also about a minute slower. I think there is such a thing as “too strong”.

    Guess I slept too late for a CFHSV “Michael” will have to come up with something in the Basement Hobo Gym.

    The above article and accompanying citations are essentially a scientific testament to CrossFit methodology and nutritional recommendations. If you to are a skeptic (or geek, um… like me) check them out.

    Sorry it’s pretty “sciencey”, but that’s the nature of original research.

    ‘Michael’ – 25.36

    Brad provided much needed motivation for this workout. Thanks. The run was the most difficult part. On the second and third 800 meters, I know I looked liked an old man running a marathon: Knees externally rotated; back killing; moving inches per stride. Knee braces, a tie-dye t-shirt and a sweat band on my forehead were all that was needed to make the image complete.

    Hmmm…old man, knee brace. Thanks.
    I sure there’s a 1979 Bjorn Borg-style Fila headband around here somewhere.

    Power Snatch 3×7

    65-75-85-95-105-115PR-115-125×2,failed 3rd
    130×1 (ugly basically a push press starting from the ground)
    130×1 (better) new PR

    My goal is a bodyweight snatch. Guess I should put that on the board.

    22:26 wasn’t sure if I was supposed to anchor my feet or not on sit-ups. Either was Russell wasnt there to say I couldnt. So I did.

    cut and burn about 30 sweet gum trees for time……about 6 hours.

    today was REAL crossFit. I’m an dead on my feet.

    I’ll be doing it again tomorrow. So if anyone wants a “real” work out give me a call.


    (…..who will do anything to avoid running)

    Did this at the hotel gym. Running on the treadmill for 800m 50 back extensions, lying face down on a bench, and 50 sit-ups. Unhooked untimed, but I pushed straight through and didn’t stop. Running on a treadmill helps to keep the pace. I ran a 7:30 pace for every 800M
