Ryan's Log
I'm a 5' 8", 19 year-old sophomore in College at Appalachian State University. I'm an exercise science major who is frustrated with the curriculum. I was keeping a log at americanparkour.com and then briefly at Crossfit.com's message boards. I decided to move it here because I think it will get more/better attention from the local community.

I got into Parkour in early 2007 and started crossfitting in fall of 2007. I live in Raleigh, NC when I'm not at school. This past summer I trained and worked at CrossfitNC. While I was there I dabbled in BJJ. I also enjoy Wakeboarding and snowboarding when I have the opportunity. At the beggining of August I took some time off from CF to do starting strength, with great results. I drank the milk and ate a disgusting amount of food. I literally JUST finished SS and now I'm following the CF wod scaling up the load and scaling down the volume. I'm also using Rippetoe's texas method to work on my Press. Here's some stats:

Bodyweight: 173 (cutting at the moment)

Crossfit Total:885
Squat: 350
Press: 130
Deadlift: 405

Michael: 18:57
Murph: 38:12
Fran: 5:00
Helen: 9:42
FGB: 326
Weighted pullup: +70 lbs
Snatch: 144 lbs

Rest Day

Due to my hectic schedule and my recovery needs, I decided today would best serve me as a rest day. Kind of dissapointed because the WOD was heavy singles on Clean and Jerk and I really wanted to hit those. Maybe throw them in before the WOD tomorrow.

Texas Method

5x5 Press @ 115

Crossfit WOD


Double Unders


Those first 50 double unders were the best I've ever done in a workout. Once fatigue set in, form faded fast.

Rest Day

I'm currently trying to figure out how to work some DL into my Texas method stuff. I'm also going to try to start squatting heavy once a week to stay strong in that lift. I'll post once I figure out just how to accomplish all that and still follow the 3/1 CF.com wods.

You may want to go light on squats (like just warmup sets or something) on the days you aren't going heavy. Else, your motor pathways will get rusty and you will see stagnating progress, IMHO. Even if you just run through warmup sets one other time a week very quickly, i think you will see better results.

Just my opinion though...

Steven Low 12-10-2008 05:55 PM

Do one heavy lift before your WODs. Should be pretty easy to do.

I'm unbelievably sore from the past 2 days of CF. The mainpage prescribed a 10k today. I did not do that.

Steven Low 12-14-2008 09:01 AM

If you're sore for more than a week it might be a good idea to back off.

If I recall you're zoning to cut down on the fat so being a caloric deficit means you won't have the recovery capabilities you did on SS.
