Nice work on Tuesday everyone. Before I get into the specifics I wanted to repost part of a comment that Reggie had made in the previous entry. It’s Reggie’s 2yr Crossfit Anniversary and here’s what he has to say:
“On a personal note, happy second CrossFit anniversary to…me! 🙂 In late November 2006 (when I started my first CFDC class…and there was *no* “Elements” class at that time), I weighed ~230-235 pounds. I *thought* that I was in shape then (I do recall that the kettlebell swings wore me out. And bear crawl? Puhleeze!)! Now, I’m weighing ~215 pounds (and I feel as if I dropped a lot of bodyfat in 2008). Regardless of my performance in Sunday’s deadlift (okay, I will admit that my form has improved), I feel a lot stronger than I did two years ago. But I am still a work-in-progress (and constantly “under construction”). I’m not “there” yet!
Props and thanks to “Coach” Tom, Russ, Jerry, Jen, Maiko, Fred, Karen, Steve O., Tuba Steve, Chris R., “Salty Hat” Chris, Stephanie (the double-under queen), Tom A. (my “masters” partner-in-crime), Ami (still “The Truth”), “Big Daddy” Joe, John F., John W., Sara (“strong and sexy”), Jason, “Red Viking” Alex, Brian (“B-dawg”) W., and to all of the others — too numerous to mention (and please forgive me if I did not mention your name) — who passed through the doors of Balance Gym and gave me a push (or a word of encouragement or an ass-kicking) whenever I needed it at CFDC. I could not have done it without you. 🙂
Sorry for the long-winded comment, but my point to anyone reading this entry is thus (at the risk of being cliche): If *I* can achieve it, then so can *you*!”
Thank you Reggie!! I swear CFDC wouldn’t be the same without you around and I know I’m not alone in thinking that. Speaking of which, check out the comments from the previous entry to see a CFDC Christmas song Reggie wrote!
Getting Warm & Tearing Up Your Tailbone:
5 Dive Bomber Push-ups
Workout: Tom’s Specialty: DB Complex
The following counts as ONE REP and ONE REP only!
DB Hang Power Clean
DB Push Jerk
With that in mind, our workout was:
10 DB Complex
Pretty rough but some good old fashion bodyweight burpees killed more than the DB complex!
Now the action shots?
Apparently the camera setting was on “drugged-up poltergeist,” but I’m posting anyway ’cause sharing = caring.
Finisher: Wearing Out Those Abs and Tearing Up Yo’ A$s: V-sit and Plank Hold Competition.
Simple – hold the V-sit position as long as possible. Then we did the same with the Plank Hold. Dre killed both although Chris R. and Tom were close behind for the V-sit and Plank hold respectively.
Tom brought some news about the CF Games 2009: the regional qualifier will take place in April. So which CFDCer is up for the regional challenge? Do we need to do a mini CFDC competition to determimne who will represent CFDC??
