My Last Blog (that you’ll see…)

I have been less than consistent with posting blogs.

111 RFT

  1. Hand to med ball
  2. Jump to plank
  3. Chest to med ball
  4. Jump feet to med ball
  5. Med ball clean + wall ball shot (20# & 10′)
  6. Catch med ball and black on back behind neck
  7. Med ball back squat
  8. Bbehind the neck med ball press
  9. Move med ball to chest, mid-thigh, and then floor

This was grueling. I completed 9 sets of 10 reps, a set of 11 reps, and finished with a set of 10 reps.

Time = 28:53

AFAP
Complete 65 presses @ 65% of 1RM in unbroken sets (no rest at top of press or on shoulders); row same # of calories in same # of strokes, e.g., 7 presses then 7 calories in 7 strokes

Then

AFAP
65 strict C2B pull-ups in unbroken sets switching grip (normal, right palm forward, left palm forward) each set; rest exactly 30 seconds between sets

Again, a grueling workout. I completed presses in 2 sets of 7, 2 sets of 6, a set of 5, 3 sets of 6, a set of 5, and finished with a set of 2 reps. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to row 2 calories in 2 strokes. And rowed 3! I usually rowed at least an additional calorie each round.

Time = 17:40

I completed 7, 6, and 4 pull-ups, followed 3 sets of 3 reps. Then 2, 3, 2, 2, 3, 1, 1, 3, 3, 1, 3, 3, 1, 3, 3, 1, & 1 reps. Normal (both palms forward) was the hardest and right palm forward was the easiest to complete. Twenty-three rounds, thus 11 minutes of rest.

Time = 14:26

AFAP
10 rounds @ 75#
– Strict HSPU
– Strict L-sit C2B pull-up
– Strict K2E
– “Bear” complex (PC + FS + PP + BS + behind the neck PP); bring bar to shoulders, mid-thigh, and then floor after each round
9, 8 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 rounds @ 80, 85, 90, 95, 100, 105, 110, 115, & 120#, respectively; rest 90 seconds between rounds

Holy shit, this was tough. That’s a total of 55 reps of each activity. The first HSPU at the beginning of each round was much easier than subsequent rounds.

Running times: 7:47, 16:16, 23:53, 30:45, 36:48, 44:47, 46:18, 50:04, 52:55, and 54:58.

Row 250m AFAP

Time = 48.1 (42 strokes/minute)

Then

11 RFT
100m row sprint (goal 20 seconds or fewer)
5 twisting burpees

Time = 13:47

Then

Press
Singles to 90% of 1RM

I easily worked up to 135# (which used to be a HUGE struggle).

Today (Tuesday, November 13)

11 RFT
– 9 no rebound box jumps, 24″
– 7 Russian KB swings, 53#
– 5 box jumps
– 3 kipping K2E

Time = 15:38

Then 

Sumo deadlift
Singles working up to 90% of 1RM

I completed reps @ 205, 225, 245, 265, 285, 295, 305, & 315#

I truly enjoyed “A User’s Guide to Cheating Death” hosted by Tim Caulfield. Whilst not a direct quote, Tim emphasized that, regardless of the type of activity, everyone should find something they enjoy doing. This includes, of course, yoga, swimming, hiking, running, weightlifting, CrossFit, kickboxing, etc.

I’ve found something that I enjoy doing, and, much like running, I enjoy doing it alone. I will continue to exercise and work out in my home garage/gym, and I will continue to enjoy doing so.

What I won’t continue doing is sharing the workouts publicly. Yes, I’ll continue blogging, as I truly enjoy both writing and reminiscing. I no longer feel compelled to share.

So, there’s that.
