    Default Jordan's Log of Competitive Exercise

    • texas starting strength seminar september 2020
    • wichita falls texas december seminar 2020
    Background:

    Stats: 30 year old male, 5'10, 205lbs
    Lifts: SQ: 640 (wrapped), 591 (sleeves), BP 430, DL 725, Press-264
    Clean- Unknown, Snatch- Unknown, Fran- Unknown and unknowable

    CrossFit History:

    Used to do "CrossFit" in a commercial gym with friends. Form was likely laughable, workouts were cherrypicked, etc. I have no bench marks and am basically starting from scratch. My goal is to train CrossFit exclusively until the 2016 open and see if I am even remotely competitive for going to regionals (perhaps 2017?). Follow along for lots of laughs, rhabdo, and general tomfoolery.

    Goals are to lose 10lbs, improve Olympic lifts/CrossFit skills/conditioning, and tackle the open.

    10-18-15
    Session 1:
    Run 25 min @ RPE 6 w/ HR 120-130. Distance traveled 2.1 miles. Running with that low of HR is hard so there was some walking.

    Session 2:
    Warm up: EMOM x 12 minutes alternating 10 double unders, 10 wall balls (20# to 10' target). Double unders improved markedly towards end of warm up

    "Close Grip" OHS: 70kg x 5 x 4 (RPE 5 or so. Grip was 3rd finger on Olympic Ring)
    Snatch from Hip: 60kg x 3 x 4 (not heavy, just trying to drill technique)

    60s handstand hold w. face to wall. Nose and toes only thing touching wall. Done continuous. Not hard, but I need to learn how to "roll" out of this position.
    6 min strict ring muscle ups- 3 reps. Having problems with a transition that doesn't hurt my wrists. Need to practice.
    50 hollow rocks done as 10 x 5 sets

    3 rounds of:
    20 step ups to 20" box w/ 45# db's in each hand
    20 KB swings (24kg)
    15 toes to bar
    Time: 11:30 (first round @ 1:59)
    Grip was smoked for the step ups at start of round 2. This is going to be difficult.

    Turns out, I'm not a regionals level athlete after 1 workout.

    Do you have a xfit couch or are you programming yourself?

    Jacob Tsypkin is doing my programming. I'm supposed to work with Ben and Alec Smith when I get back to VA for some gymnastics and other CrossFitty things.

    I was like, really sad when you retired your log.
    My heart lept with joy when I saw this at the top of the screen.

    Also, I was under the impression that once you were strong enough, a few weeks of skill work and conditioning and you'd be on the podium at the games. We shall see.
    Great job this weekend, always a pleasure.

    Thank you for starting this log, I am really excited for it. I too was sad when you stopped your last log, especially since I started reading it very late but now I'm seeing the beginning of another journey! Good luck with CrossFit and thanks for sharing! Also, it feels weird seeing your first 2 workouts doing non-strength work (step-ups and kettlebells?!)

    I look forward to you joining Matt Nolan on the team of Crossfitters that pull 700+. My favourite part is when Nolan wistfully asks when he gets to deadlift again.
