good stuff....but I have your quote

I...for the record...do NOT have the qualifications to run.

and I clearly see you converting from OHS to a sprint.....I feel so disillusioned right now....day is night....Guinness is....well ok that stays the same....

I already posted that link at the long Moynihan thread. If I could figure how how to post the picture of the bar in the air, I would.

More and more with less and less.

I've spent just short of 35 years moving machinery. Everyday, you are pushing, pulling or wrestling large pieces of equipment through customer's premises. To make it interesting, we even have to wear cleanroom "bunnysuits" at some customers. They are made to walk around in, not work in.

Point is, you get "farmer" strong. In the gym, everything gets in a groove, so you end working that groove. Carrying crap over your head while dragging a sled backwards down a rough trail hits you everywhere.

Dan,

The link to your training with the GJ crew is great stuff. Creative, hardcore, and obviously max-effective as indicated by the photos. I just read your "Blood on the Barbell" article on T-nation also. Everyone should read that ASAP. Brilliant and inspiring!

Peace, Props

Damnit....I don't wear taped glasses and have bad acne......ok I'm off to give someone on Robb's ship a swirley so I can get back my semi-nerd title.....

I did some of the sled conversion stuff...in my latest Vblog

I've got to buy a sled. . .and some weights. My jr. high kids will love it once we get a sled here, which should be soon.

On another thought; I read some of the comments on T-Nation after the latest article. Now I know why they made the changes over there. Some of those posters are amazing in that they can still type with their heads so far up their collective asses.

Ken Urakawa

Ron, just find an old tire. Cut a couple lengths of 2x4 to wedge in there to hold the weight, and then use another bit of 2x4 as a washer for an eye-bolt. We drag it with a tow rope (less than 10$ at Kmart).

Ken's tire-sled is awesome...especially doing the overhead lockout "drags" !!!

Ken, you really should share that on video with the world...unless you're in the TM process right now, with multiple certifications to follow...

Good idea, even coming from a wanker.
Believe it or not, we've had problems getting old tires. Tire shops around here don't want to part ways with their recyclable stock.

I saw Ross Enamait used just a kids sled and attached a rope and threw weights on top of it.

Living in Orange County (avg. temp 74 degrees), not much call for a kid's sled.
I'm looking for an old wheelbarrow as I saw that proposed by Dan a long time ago in a CF thread far, far away. (like that reference, don't you?)

I'm still on the members list. Though, 14 of my trolls have been banned.
That is so childish, I am ashamed.

I heard he was a clown. And what's with the capital "J" on "Jerk?"

JW Luckett

According to the most intelligent and sophisticated explanation of the Jerk in the universe:

"Neither jumping nor the lack thereof constitute a jerk; rather it is the retreat of the hip concomitant with the press that defines the jerk."

Good grief.

I had a fear of concomitant, but my guy showed me how he does the jerk and I married him.

Here's thinking of you Danny! These were all fairly new people but they had a blast. Give them a year...

Oh and I apologize about the shoddy camera work.

Gary John

Ah, like that hill. No need to run that far, defeating the whole purpose of the workout.

Nobody cared at P&B, but yesterday, there was an marathon on the G4 cable channell of "Ninja Warrior". I mixed in two throwing sessions, but watched at least 6 hours of the competition. I shall give up throwing and try for this.
Two guys my age, sucked royal. Paul Hamm, the oly gymmie and his brother competed. I'd wipe them both out, cuz I'm tall enough to make it over the warped wall.

Mark Twight would kill in stage three. You spend the whole time hanging from something or just moving with your fingertips.

I just enjoy the wipe-outs.

With Ninja Warrior, Arrested Development and Attack of the Show (along with regular showings of The Big Lebowski), G4 has become one of my fav cable networks.

Gary,
you lost me on the "Ah like the hill, no need to run that far".

Gary John
05-22-2007, 12:37 PM
Pierre,

Admittedly Litinov was supposed to have run 400 meters after front squats.
Good use of the OHS would be a 30 meter all out sprint uphill.

Otherwise, you are back to just doing the skinnifying that x-fitters are hung up on.

All this was carefully studied at the MILF and we used grad students in both music and poetry. Neither group was overly harmed during these tests.

Gary John
05-22-2007, 12:42 PM
On the serious side, cuz it might help.

Think of a safety, fighting off the tight end, for several seconds during a sweep. The running back breaks across the middle, and the safety now has to sprint after him at full speed. A big shift from a strength move, to a speed move.

How many OHS reps before conversion?

That's not the same. Lit Front Squatted 405 for 8 then ran a sub 75 400...



I can't get my head round how awesome that is.

James Evans
05-23-2007, 09:02 AM
And I guess it has to be balls to the wall stuff when you run too. Not a jog round the block to get your morning paper.

Ron Nelson

I know there was more to this quote earlier. I even think it was pretty good.

Are there gremlins at work here?

John Alston
05-23-2007, 01:13 PM
Inspiring stuff all around! Makes me wish I had space to sprint after doing front squats.
Maybe I'll do ceiling touches.

Pierre Auge
05-23-2007, 01:45 PM
No gremlins...

Just people who can't FS 405 nor have a need - let alone sprint afterward.

How about this: An Infantryman who has to load 20x75lbs 25mm ammo cans on top of a 2 meter LAVIII then immediately run uphill 300m during a rocket attack/ambush to save his/her own life and neutralize the threat. (Yes I said her - Canadians allow women in all combat roles - they hold their own just fine.)

Thats what its all about - I rarely train football players!

Gary thank you for the advice, but we have different training priorities, I'm sure you understand. Light is relative!

Steve Shafley
05-23-2007, 01:51 PM
Holy crap, Pierre, what's that the "OHS + run until you are out of sight" WOD?

HAHAHA.

I like it hard, intense, and of short duration. The sled sprint I do is followed by a backwards sled drag, and it's about all I can do to drag the thing back.

Pierre Auge
05-23-2007, 02:01 PM
It was only 300m but it was close to a 50 degree incline. It started getting hard about 3/4 of the way up! The longest it took was 9 minutes for the oldest person there.

The fastest was 5:40~. 21x95 600m run - 15x95 600m run - 9x95 600m run. None of our strongest were there I'm thinking sub 4:00 if they had been.

Try it!

Either way I'm a dick and Danny is a good guy!
