Deads and Presses

Ha!!! Heavy movement, high heart rate:

Crossfit Plano, Suffer on Saturday

Deadlifts (at bw)/pushups as follow:

21 deads/3 pushups
18 deads/6 pushups
15 deads/9 pushups
12 deads/12 pushups
9 deads/15 pushups
6 deads/18 pushups
3 deads/21 pushups

Porch scale 3/4 body weight (did 132lbs about 80% if we're being anal . . . and we are)


Little background, did this on 9/28/07.

Started with 140lbs . . . had to drop to like 105. Finished in 20:32. Dead last in our group. it seriously bummed me out. Today was better. A lot better.

I don't know why exactly, other than keeping up with cfit. This workout seriously upset me last time. I'm usually not that upset by any one performance, but this one just messed with me. Now, I weigh less, can do more work in less time, and really, if I had done 140lbs, I don't think it would have messed with the time too bad. The deads were not the problem, the pushups were. Those need some serious work.

Dang...nice work. Thanks for the reminder that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Right now that light seems like an oncoming train.

Hey thanks! Yeah, if you keep at it I am convinced you get better, it just never seems like it at the time . . .
