    D1L6:
    • 23 rounds (-5 cf. previous D1L6, -5 cf. PR)

      My son was hit with a stomach flu last night, so I did not sleep very well.
      I decided to take it easy today.

      New photos.

Week 62

Post by cheapo » Wed Jun 03, 2009 3:34 am

Week 62
  • Tuesday, June 2, 2009
    D1L6:
    • 27 rounds (+4 cf. previous D1L6, -1 cf. PR)

      I had a very busy weekend full of renovation work.
      As a result I did not feel like working out on Monday.
      I went to bed early and made a great Tuesday workout possible!

      New photos.
    Wednesday, June 3, 2009
    D2L6:
    • Untimed

      In between sets I watched a bunch of CrossFit videos on kipped pull-ups. (Find them on this page.)
    Saturday, June 6, 2009
    D3L6:
    • 5'18" PR (-0'42" cf. previous D3L6, -0'05" cf. PR)
      Pull-ups: 32 (16-4-3-3-4-2)
      Push-ups: 64 (30-10-6-6-4-3-1)
      Squats: 64 (35...)


      New PR. Excellent. And much better than last week.
      And this despite only 16 pull-ups in the first set.
      But...
      sigh, kipping is still killing me: I am getting much better times with kipping than without, but my kipping is inefficient and costs me way too much effort.

the noob again with the acronyms (i'll get there eventually).
i've asked this in another log as well - what does PR stand for? i presume it's Personal Record.
and what does the cf means that you refer to?

Correct.

cf. an abbreviation for the Latin word confer, meaning "compare" or "consult"

just something else that i've noticed on your log and some other experienced members is the "untimed" D2.
why is that?

WOD: workout of the day
it comes from CrossFit which uses a randomized workout regimen.

We do Day 2 untimed in order to focus on good form rather than speed.
With all 3 days done by the clock, it is all too easy to sacrifice form for an increased number of rounds or a quicker time.

Of course, one could do Day 1 with perfect form, but one's numbers would be worse. (But they'd be real.)

Doing Day 3 untimed makes no sense, since the time on D3 is how we know when to advance to the next level. One could do D3 with perfect form. I have tried this. The 32 dead hang pull-ups at L6 are brutal.

thanx for the replies cheapo - as always, much appreciated.
wrt the untimed D2, i thought that was the reason. D1 concentrates on endurance, D2 on form / strengh and D3 combines the two, so there is really no point in timing yourself on D2, right?
seeing that i'm stll new, i'll keep on timing myself on D2, but with the emphasys on form. by timing myself i'll be able to monitor my progress which will be some form of motivation. as i progress, i guess i'll also start doing some untimed D2's.
check my log later today for my D2 results.

I eat a somewhat low-carb diet. I don't log it and I don't count calories. I try to eat good food and if I must have seconds, I try to make it seconds of greens and protein, not potatoes.

And I've read a lot of the articles at Mark's Daily Apple.
