Competed in first ever meet in the 275# weight class - completely raw - no wraps, belt, etc.

Squat - 192.5 kg
Bench - 135 kg
Deadlift - 245 kg

Total - 572.5 kg

Meet was super boring. Only me and one other guy in my weight class. He was a beast though and it was awesome to watch him lift. I think this is something I will do once a year as a benchmark.

Family day at the beach (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/saturday-10th-of-october-2009.html) with CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/) and a bunch of other affiliates in Miami. CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/) programmed a little loop in and out of the ocean that we ran through. Lots and lots of fun, then we grilled meat and veggies and ate, drank and laughed until sunset. Pics over here. (http://s177.photobucket.com/albums/w218/thefreshest1/CrossFit%20305%20-%20Beach%20WOD/)

Started with:
Sprint 25' into the water, full submersion and sprint back

then three loops of:
bear crawl about 30'
sprint another 30' and turn and sprint 25' into the surf
15 pushups in the surf
50' sprint in the surf
15 situps uphill in the surf
long jump burpees back to the start

finish by sprinting into the water

19:45 for me

Rest and recuperation

Dominic Sirianni
10-18-2009, 11:41 AM
Worked out at the home base - CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/) in Miami.

They programmed (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/monday-12th-of-october-2009.html) the following WOD, which I believe was a main site WOD a few weeks prior.

For time:
Run 800 meters
15 left-legged pistols
15 right-legged pistols
25 sit-ups
12 left-legged pistols
12 right-legged pistols
25 sit-ups
9 right-legged pistols
9 left legged pistols
25 sit-ups
Run 800 meters

I can't do pistols, so I held onto a gymnastics ring for balance. I had some good legs left in the last 800, which was nice.

23:03

did a one minute plank hold after.

Tonight there was a lecture on Paleo/Zone eating as a new Lean Out Challenge out. I will be participating in an effort top drop some pounds and get faster.

Dominic Sirianni
10-18-2009, 12:07 PM
Crossfit 305 (http://crossfit305.com/) workout - they programmed (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/tuesday-13th-of-october-2009.html) a WOD that is a slightly modified version of a main site WOD.

21-18-15-12-9-6 and 3 rep rounds of:
Power clean 95/65 pounds
Sit-ups
Squats

Finished in 19:28 Rx

Had a lot more gas but my lower back started severely cramping again. Gotta get rid of this extra weight. Its hindering my workouts for sure. Any high rep weighted movement where the eccentric motion taxes my back seems to trigger a severe cramp in my lower back that fades away after about 20 minutes of rest.

Dominic Sirianni
10-18-2009, 12:13 PM
CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/) had this programmed (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/wednesday-14th-of-october-2009.html):

30 Muscle ups for time

or

10 rounds of
10 pullups
10 pushups

Scaled to
5 pullups/5 pushups - 9 rounds
5 ring rows/5 pushups - 1 round
10 ring rows/10 pushups - 5 rounds

16:32

Callus started to rip after 45 pullups, which really sucks.

Dominic Sirianni
10-18-2009, 12:18 PM
CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/) had presses and deadlifts programmed (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/thursday-15th-of-october-2009.html) today.

Overhead Press
3-3-3
190-195-200

Deadlift
3-3-3

I got this far in warmups:
45x5
135x3
225x3
315x2
405x2
540x1

Calluses ripped completely at this point and I stopped


4 x 100 meter sprint

I got the sprints in 14-15s each which was really great for me. I felt very light on my feet which could be due to the Paleo/Zone eating or just the mental aspect of making healthier choices.

Dominic Sirianni
10-18-2009, 12:26 PM
CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/) had Helen (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/friday-16th-of-october-2009.html) programmed for today. I was pretty banged up, but wanted to warm up and stretch out without taxing my system.

Cardio Helen
400m jog
21 russian kb swings 1/2 pood
12 ring rows
3 rounds
12:31

Never lost my breath - lots of stretching afterward.

Dominic Sirianni
10-18-2009, 12:37 PM
CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/) had their first weightlifting class (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/saturday-17th-of-october-2009.html) today that was focused on the Snatch. Peter ran the class ad we did a whole lot of snatch balance work and some two position snatches. It was a lot of great technique practice.

Then at 1pm we headed over to the park to do a whole bunch of fun stuff.

First we did some light warmup and dynamic stretching. Then we did:

15 squats
jump up the bleachers, one at a time, run back down
15 push-ups
5 rounds

rest and recover, break into six person teams

wheelbarrow 25' broad jump back
2 rounds

rest and recover
lateral jungle gym back and forth while team wall sits
sprint to light pole and back

rest and recover

100 pullups
200 dips

Big props to Gruber for carrying my big ass.

Great workout and a lot of fun.

Miami is experiencing a cold front so CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com) was feeling pretty nice in the high 60's. They had Fran programmed (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/monday-19th-of-october-2009.html).

"Fran"
21, 15 and 9 reps of:
Barbell Thruster 95/65
Pull Ups

I scaled the pull-ups to 7-7-7. Last time I did 6-6-6. My time was 5:57, last time it was 30 seconds faster. I do seem to have lost 6 pounds of bloat in a week of eating paleo-foods in zone proportions at 18 blocks a day.

Dominic Sirianni
10-21-2009, 09:13 AM
CrossFit 305 (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/) had Elizabeth programmed. (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/tuesday-20th-of-october-2009.html) I did that one plus some assistance work at the end.

"Elizabeth"'

21-15-9
Clean 135 pounds
Ring Dips

Did it as prescribed in - 15:18 (PR)

10 GHD
10 back extensions

3 rounds with equal rest

4 pole to pole sprints max effort with about 20 seconds recovery.

Feeling pretty good right now, although my legs are fairly thrashed.

Dominic Sirianni
10-22-2009, 08:42 AM
Workout at CrossFit 305 (http://crossfit305.com/) @ 630pm

4x800m (http://garageworkout.blogspot.com/2009/10/wednesday-21st-of-october-2009.html) every ten minutes - 3:48, 4:04, 4:25, 4:24

So the first 800 started and then the next one started 10 minutes later. The idea was to get all the times within 10 seconds of each other. I came out wayyyyy too hard on the first run. Live and learn.

4x40yd max effort - rest was walking back to start
max pull-ups one minute - 15 (pr)

Legs felt pretty smoked. I felt them all night long.

Weighed myself - 10 pounds lighter than Day 1 of this challenge. Bloat is disappearing.

Dominic Sirianni
10-22-2009, 09:18 PM
Workout at 530 pm at CrossFit 305 - Miami, FL
Push Press
3-3-3-3-3

tabata push-ups

205x3
210x3
215x3
220x1 (failed on second rep)
205x5

tabata push-ups - 49

skipped sprints as my knees were shot.

I felt super low energy and had a hard time in the workout. I am attributing this mainly to restless sleep brought on by leg pain and fourth day in a row of training. Rest day tomorrow.

Dominic Sirianni
10-23-2009, 05:20 PM
Rested today - did nothing. Took a nap.

Dominic Sirianni

Did the Olympic lifting class at CrossFit 305.

We did a lot of progressions, some snatch balance, heaving snatch balance, high hand snatch, tall snatch, etc. It was a lot off great technique work.

We finished up with some overhead squats, worked up to some triples @ 155#, nothing too crazy. Each squat had a two second hold at the bottom.

Then at the 1pm class we did Murph with a buddy. Two people complete the CrossFit workout Murph as fast as you can. Partition as needed, only one person can work at a time. Last run done at the same time.

"Murph"

Run 1 mile

100 pull-ups
200 push-ups
300 squats

Run 1 mile

the whole thing took 40 plus minutes.

I also got a chest to bar pull-up for the first time ever. I am 12 pounds lighter a week and a half into eating paleo/zone.

Use as many sets each minute as needed.

We were guests of CrossFit Milford (http://www.crossfitmilford.com/blog.php?id=5448) on Turkey Day while visiting my folks in New haven. They were extremely welcoming and nice and we got a great workout in. My back froze up on the second 800m but unfroze with some foam roller.

"Get Your Turkey On"

Each team will complete each of the following. The teams will be in groups of 2-4 (depending on the number of people in attendence). One group will run while the other group performs as many repetitions of the desired exercise. When the group comes in from the run they will switch roles. Your total score is based on the total number of reps performed minus your total time.
800 meter run
max rep deadlifts (225/155)
800 meter run
max rep wall balls
800 meter run

Not sure of the final score because we lost count on the last round!! Great workout though.
