WOD: 12-07-2009

“Pumpkin Pie”

Yes I changed the name of the workout, but its mine so I reserve that right.

“Why Pumpkin Pie?”  I once heard someone say “think of the best pumpkin pie you ever ate and now think of the worst, there really wasn’t that much difference was there.”  All 3 of these movements are the same way,  you never say “Man, he’s got a blazing kettle bell swing!”, same goes for box jumps and wall balls.  So the only way to differentiate your time or show improvement is fewer breaks and less time spent in a low gear.  So as John  Mellencamp once sang “make it hurt so good”.

For Time:

21-15-9-6 reps of

KB swing

Box Jump

Wall Ball

I know seems like an odd collection, but remember I know what’s on the menu for tomorrow.

Tim missed a new PR but made a fight of it the whole way.

See everything we do in a workout on “Our WOD”

    This doesn’t seem too bad, but you are not factoring in the special “warm-up” we did this morning or the heavy thrusters………then the WOD. Actually, the WOD was nice and fast and I like that.
    I’ve never done over 65lb thrusters, so I was very pleased with a 90lb max. Brad, your thrusters were great, very impressive- so glad to have you at the Box. Jim and Zach great to have you guys back!
    Christina, Michelle, Linda ??? Help a girl out! We need more estrogen in the AM 🙂

      Yeah, I liked today’s overall program a lot — atomic s/u, thrusters and the wod, which I liked as well (probably means I didn’t push it enough). Ok then. I guess I’m ready to step up to the “big boy” box (24″)

      I will be there to help out every morning this week, but we leave for Vegas on Friday and won’t be back until Sunday night. When Gary told me what you did, I was glad I got to sleep in! 🙂

    G&C, Since you aren’t celebrating your anniversary, this trip really isn’t “all about you” and you won’t be gambling or drinking and there isn’t much else to do in Vegas- I would appreciate a CFLV t-shirt. No workout necessary, just get me a t-shirt -if it’s cute!

    Ran 400m in between rain showers, then did joint mobility. For warmup did the regular sit ups. Max wt on thrusters= 60lbs. Did Wod in 11:40 or 11:04 ( 25lb KB swing and 12″ box)forgot to write down the time. Was excited because I did this WOD- AS PERSCRIBED!!!! This is a first for me, Matt usually has to scale me down. I was wondering if I could keep it up for the wall balls, or would Matt change me over to goblet squats half way through. If I didn’t get that stich in my side hopefully my time would have been better.

    Fantastic work today. You guys cracked me up on the warm up, keep it fun it keeps me creative. Then several of you really upped your game on the heavy thrusters. Finally, several of you found new intensity on the WOD. Closing up tonight I saw at least 3 PR’s on the board, as a coach that’s better than peanut butter and chocolate (my highest praise is egg nog, so don’t get a big head).

    Laura thanks for letting me work out with you, you did a great job pushing me and it was fun (except for trying to read the watch while doing the sit ups).

    53lb KB, 20lb ball, 24in Box

    on the thrusters…I think I started at 75lbs then 95lbs then 105lbs and that’s the most I could do! I tried for 115lbs but didn’t make it this time! Hopefully I’ll be able to get that next time!
    35lb KB, green ball?????, 20in box

    I’ll be getting a journal book TODAY so I won’t have to go off of memory!
