05/23/2011
BW: 206 lbs
I have gained 7 lbs back in the past month :D

Warm up:
Row 250 M
2 min hip mobility
2 min quad mobility
2 min shoulder mobility
15 air squats
10 spiderman push ups
Row 250 M

WOD: For max reps
1 minute Row for calories - 28 cals
1 minute rest
1 minute of Hand release push ups - 39 reps
1 minute rest
1 minute of Kettle bell swings (45 lbs) - 30 reps
1 minute rest
1 minute of abmat sit ups - 34 reps
1 minute rest
1 minute of Back squats (115 lbs) - 15 reps
1 minute rest
1 minute of Push Press (95 lbs) - 10 reps

That was hard as fuck. Started to gas out after the sit ups and felt very thirsty, which was distracting.

1 hour of Wing Chun wooden dummy kwon sau training
- First time back since June 16 last year. He's opened up some day classes, which will be much more convenient for me. I was training and in walks one of my crossfit coaches :lol: He's been training off and on there much longer than I have.

It was weird and I don't even know if I was doing it right. No one was watching, and me and another guy doing them were laughing the whole time. You lay on your back and touch right hand to left toes, left hand to right toes...something like that.

BW: 207 lbs

Crossfit was doing a 2K row today and I didn't really want to do that, so I went to Fire Station 10 again.

Bench Press
135 x 5
155 x 5
175 x 3
185 x 1
190 x 1
195 x 1
200 x FAIL! Had a spotter this time though.

Push Press
45 x 5
95 x 5
Started to do 105 but when I cleaned it, it hurt in my shoulders, so I discontinued. I should have stretched more before I started. Didn't really do any mobility beforehand.

Switched to dumbbells -
Push Press
25s x 10
30s x 10
30s x 10

Shrugs
45 lb plates x 10 x 3

Dumbbell curls
30s x 10 x 3

My time kinda sucked, but my shoulders ran out of juice and I couldn't really do anything about it.

Don't ask me why there was a leg warm up prior to a shoulder WOD.

I read that as 'karaoke drill' and I was imagining CF making you sing while you workout.

:lol: Actually, you spelled it right. I didn't. And that's what I thought the first time I saw it. But it's like a sideways running thing where your feet cross over each other.

It was so HOT in there today!

Warm up:
15 Double under attempts (1 successful)
10 hip extensions
10 V-ups
5 burpee broad jumps
15 Double under attempts (6 successful)
Warm up dumbbell snatch

WOD:
15 min AMRAP
5 right arm DB power snatch (35 lbs)
5 left arm DB power snatch (35 lbs)
30 abmat sit ups
90 single unders

Results - 5 complete rounds +2 snatches

I probably could have done 40 or 45 lbs for the dumbbell snatch, but I wasn't sure. My shoulders have been really sore the past few days. Didn't want to tear anything.
