Thursday 1/7/10

Sorry I was not able to post this earlier the day. I'm still sidelined with the flu (grrrr, I hate being sick and I'm the worlds worst patient). Here is a WOD you can do today or tomorrow. Enjoy, it's another one of the "Girls".

1/2 "Angie"
For time:
50 Pull Ups (obviously most of us will have to do these assisted, or jumping)
50 Push Ups
50 Sit Ups
50 Air Squats

Or, do 1/4 "Angie"
For time:
25 Pull Ups
25 Push Ups
25 Sit Ups
25 Air Squats

Yup, the full-meal-deal Angie is 100 reps of each! Ouch.

Monday 1/4/10

Back after a much needed recovery. And back with a vengeance, I must say. Today's WOD is probably the most well known of all the CrossFit WOD's, the infamous "Fran". Yup, another one of the CF "Girls" and, yes, she will kick your butt as hard as any of the CF Girls.

Warm Up/Stretch/Range of Motion

Skillz and Drillz:
Thrusters review - here is a YouTube video of how they are done, notice the depth of the squat and the full extension overhead with head poking through:

Thrusters 3 X 5 at a moderate load

For time: 21, 15, 9
Thrusters Men @ 95# Women at 65#
Pull Ups

Scaling Options:
  • Reduce the number of reps
  • Do assisted pullups
  • If 21, 15, 9 is too much, do 15, 12, 9
Post time (and any scaling) to "comments".

Warm Up/Stretch/Mobility

Skillz and Drillz:
  • Kettlebell Clean practice. For those proficient in the KB Clean, work on the KB Snatch - 5X5 each side. If you do not have a KB, use a dumbbell
WOD: "Dirty Thirty". There is a CrossFit WOD unofficially, yet affectionately, known as the "Filthy Fifty" (http://www.crossfit.com/mt-archive2/001550.html). I've put together what I'm calling the "Dirty Thirty" (10 movements, 30 reps each). Either way, this is a "Chipper" WOD; if you push yourself on this workout, you will know why it's called a "Chipper"; you can also refer to this archived post: http://crossfitbtwg.blogspot.com/2009/10/update.html Not a video for the faint of heart or young ones...

"Dirty Thirty" - 30 reps of each, for time:
  • Sandbag Get Up @ 30#-60#
  • Assisted or Jumping Pull Up
  • Kettlebell Swing @ 20#-35#
  • Overhead Lunge (15 each leg) @ 20#-45#
  • Knees to Elbows - scale this by doing bent knee leg raise
  • Push Press @ 45#-65#
  • Sit Up with Knees Out (as in reclined bound angle pose)
  • Sumo Deadlift High Pull @ 20#-45#
  • Burpee
  • Double Under. If you cannot do DU's, then do singles X 120
If there are any movements you are not familiar with, go to www.crossfit.com and click "exercises and demos". Below is an excellent tutorial on how to do "Knees to Elbows".

See you tonight!
