Dan 3 | 2008-03-04

Randy 4 | 2008-03-04

sarena kopciel 5 | 2008-03-04
No perhaps Greg just programmed an easy day with 1 of each on the metcon!! Kinda like a Xmas come earlier day!!
Eric Jones 6 | 2008-03-04
LOL! That's how the experts do it! it actually makes the plates easier to reach too since they are higher.
Greg Everett 7 | 2008-03-04
Sorry about that. Trying to do too many things at once.
Derek Simonds 8 | 2008-03-05
Oh if I had that many bumper plates!
Shawn Thomas 9 | 2008-03-05
Greg, Thanx for ur opine on my low back. Yes I do see a chiropractor. And I am tighter than a noose in my flexors/psoas/glutes & low back. I also get multifidus pain on my right side that seizes up my erectors. I am stretching like a madman. However, when it comes to ab work, I am bad for not doing much at all (boring), but I have started doing some plank work. - shawn
Greg Everett 10 | 2008-03-05
Derek - There are more on the other side of the gym! Shawn - Get that ab work in! Have you tried massage/SMR type stuff to try to get those multifidi to relax a bit?

I use to get alot a massage done, helped alot. I will book an appt. today. I am on the ab stuff asap, should I be doing situps? won't that load up my already tight hip flexors? what is the "death stretch" God help me..lol
Greg Everett 14 | 2008-03-05
Death stretch - http://www.cathletics.com/daily/index.php?show=daily&dailyID=23 I'd limit full sit-ups/hip flexion work for now, but you can still get in some heavily loaded ab work (oh yes, crunches...). The planks are good too as long as you're holding the position without hyperlordosis.
ec 15 | 2008-03-05
nothing in the tank today. sn - hit 105#, but wrist was acting up and didn't feel like lifting heavy. tried the metcon, 1.5 pd sdhp, 35# db pp, and 50# chops - but called it at 3 rnds. 10 min even. bleh

Nick 18 | 2008-03-06
sorry for the lame question, but when you list something like: 12 KB @ 33% of BW, I assume you're using 2 kettlebells, right? I just have the one, so I'm modifying workouts, but when you tack on the percentage of bodyweight, I just want to make sure I understand what's intended in the original workout. Thanks!
Greg Everett 19 | 2008-03-06
Nick - One KB for the high pulls
dan colson 20 | 2008-03-06
Snatch heavy single 84 kg PR Clean & Jerk heavy single 90 kg (attempted 100 kg but r elbow buckled a little on the jerk, I'm calling it a miss, usually the L elbow is the problem focused to hard on that side i guess) Front squat heavy single 130 kg
