Here's me .. can someone please put them side by side with the ugly one on the left? I would appreciate it

the second one I need oppinions.. which is better..the original one or the cropped version?



You did this same thing last year I believe....you couldn't figure out how to put the two side by side.

With all due respect, why are you doing the classic "Muscle Tech Out of Shape" pose?  You are obviously rounding your shoulders and pushing your stomach out to look fat.  Little deceiving don't you think?

4/19


Strength

3 rds 10 reps each (you go, I go format)

Strict Push press @ 95, 115, 135
High pulls @ 95, 115, 135
Tire flip @ 375# tire

3 x 15 Deadlift @ 225 (again, utilizing you go, I go)

Conditioning

Comments

- Was another light day today.  I really despise high pulls.  As I am typing this my shoulders ache like all hell.  The deads were a surprise.  I was slightly concerned with what recently happened with low back.  Also, the 225# felt heavier than it should.  Looking forward to Monday.

I see what youre getting at. I havent a clue who Bela Karolyi is... but this argument is sort of invalid.

Sean Foley and Greg Jackson DO walk the walk. Sean Foley WILL out golf you and Greg Jackson WILL fuck you up in a fight.

Failure to compete in ones skill isn't indicative of "not walking the walk". Maybe limited by physical short comings, or just a downright lack of god given talent; but they do "walk the walk" so to speak.



Yes, Foley and Jackson will.  No doubt.  But have either been under the pressure of a "pro" event?  No. Neither have had to prep for such events.  In the case of Foley, he only competed on the varsity team of a college yet he has a number of high level PGA tour guys coming to him.  So, if you are cutting Van down because he doesn't have an Olympia caliber body and thus his advice is bad shouldn't you apply that same logic to both Jackson and Foley?

Im not even trying to harsh on you man.

Its just that common sense dictates that only advice giving from someone who walks the walk is safe advice.


I could read off step by step instructions to installing a turbocharger on a mustang, based on internet findings, but I wouldnt have a fucking clue what I was talking about.


Good thing many exercised common sense and never listened to Béla Károlyi, Sean Foley, or Greg Jackson

4/18

Had to take a little break due to some major outside shit.  Was a KILLER not being able to go to the gym.  Finally am able to go back and so I took it light today.  Going to start fresh on Monday with a new training partner.  Has some interesting ideas on training and so I won't be following/modifying any of the training of some guys online.  I will be doing my own thing.  Part of what my partner and I will be doing will be to work up to a heavier 1rm on the Oly lifts and then alternating the weeks in a 'heavy/light' type of way.  Trying to use some of the powerlifting philosophy with it.  For the heavy we were thinking of starting with 80% of the 1rm and then take 3 - 4 weeks (the heavy weeks) and keep adding weight in 5 - 10lb increments until we can not perform 2 - 3 reps.  Then when that happens, shoot for another 1rm. 

Strength
8 x 10 : Front squats (50% 1rm, R:90sec) 155#
3 x 5 : Clean + press + thruster (R:90 sec): 95#
3x10 : GHD situps

Conditioning
4 x 25yd Prowler push : 140# total added

Comments
- With the clean + press + thruster, you re-set with each rep

I love fucking animals hundreds time more than you do (why fuck did I have dog avatar) before I even met you.


Josh may not be 100% all there, but I seriously doubt he would resort to bestiality.

Anyway....I see BigCyp has taken my road.

You did extremely well Krank.  I am very proud of all the hard work you have put into this and your placing!

Yeah, I am happy with all my placings except for the 1st week.  For the third week's workout of Crossfit Open I was almost in the top 100 for the world (for us old farts).  Weird thing was from week 3 - 5, I couldn't sleep Sunday nights.  Just like the night before a bodybuilding show.  Have to correct that for next year.

cool,good to see you back .that is a lot of competitiors,good goal .were you 100 pct ready for it or expecting something less in terms competitiors.

For the most part I was as better than I have been.  Was going and getting soft tissue work done on me.  This guy was absolutely the most painful I have ever experienced.  It did help with the knees and shoulders though.  After the first week (which I fucked up on) I saw how many people were in my group I realized what I was going to have to do in order to be in the top 500.  The top 200 guys do a qualifier for the games.  I am shooting for that next year.

Glad to see ya` back around bro......just noticed this log,pretty tough stuff!

I`ll have to peruse it later when I have more time.

Thanks Tim.  Not really "back".  Just going to keep going with the log.  Remember....Crossfit is evil and the devil's work according to midget Joe.

Well, its been a while.  I figure I would resume this log after doing the Crossfit Open.  No, its nothing like oiling up and flexing in front of an auditorium comprised of 80% men....so you will have to accept that I feel bad enough as it is.  On a serious not, I did make it into the top 500 in my age group world wide.  There was something like 3215 guys in my division world wide that completed all five of the open workouts.  I am happy with my placing (for the most part) but I know I could have been top 200 if I had nailed some of the "Skill" type of things better.  So, on to my 'off season' where I will be focusing  more so on the strength aspect of my lifts, then skill work, then conditioning.

Olympic
5 x 2 + 1 : Clean & Jerk (r:2min) - 225, 225, 225, 225, 225
3 x 3 ; Clean Pull (r:90 sec) - 185 , 185, 185

Strength
3x5 : Back Squat (no pausing, R:90sec) 275, 275, 275

Conditioning
4 Rounds (Resting 1:1)

250m Row
ME UB HSPU (no kipping is allowed)

Comments
- This first workout back to heavy lifting sucked.  The last 5 - 6 weeks were more focused on conditioning and maintaining the strength I do.  So, I will be following very clo

She's got that native Scottsdale look, not the pretend "moved from south Phoenix, lived in Glendale for a while, now I'm claiming I'm from Scottsdale" look.

Like the kind of chick a Getbigger would meet when he was having dinner on Saturday night at the Biltmore. NOT the cretins who save up for a month, put on their best sports paraphenalia, then head down to Fashion Square Mall and "fine dine" at Z-Tejas.

Would hit.

Or who get their evening "best" at Last Chance?   Grin

Cross fitters aren't smart enough to foam roll.

Maybe some aren't but at least they all meet the height requirements for the rides at Disney

Did it Saturday....found out my cooler has a small crack in it so my water was not staying in it.  Had to keep monitoring the temp every 10 - 15 mins.  Otherwise, the steak came out nice.  I do think I will continue to do my searing and finishing in oven though....I feel its much more my style....

19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: that fella that snapped his spinal cord up doing crossfit on: January 15, 2014, 07:50:56 PM
Good post but let me add: The cord did not have to be completely dissected. All that was needed for paralysis is a small fragment of bone to enter the canal and impinge or injure the cord in some way. Very delicate anatomy we are dealing with here.

ETIOLOGY
  • Thoracic spine is rigid owing to the support of the rib cage and the costovertebral articulations:
  • The spinal canal is narrowest in the thoracic spine.
  • Traumatic thoracic spine fractures require enormous forces. Motor-vehicle and motorcycle collisions, pedestrians struck, and falls (particularly from height >10 ft) account for most fractures: A small percentage are caused by penetrating injuries (see “Spinal Cord Syndromes”).
  • 50% of all spinal fractures and 40% of all spinal cord injuries occur at the thoracolumbar junction (T11-L2).
The thing about the thoraco-lumbar junction is that injury to this area is associated with what is known as polytrauma.  So, Could there have been a compression fracture prior to the bar striking him?  Unlikely, but possible.  The direct blunt force trauma to the column would be the most likely cause.  Most likely the posterior and medial columns of T11 (based on R Lous' column theory) would have been damaged if there was a fracture.  I haven't heard the specifics of what actually got damaged (other than severed spinal cord).  Not sure I want to know.

Chaos...all joking aside, its unlikely that there were any pre-existing problems with his back at that specific level.  Lumbar region quite possibly.  But would that be something that would have caused it.  I am still not clear if this was a straight out compression injury (unlikely), the bar striking the spine on the way down, or the bar striking the back on the rebound.

I was gnawing away viciously like an alpha male on my apple while driving and I just punched myself in the face due to a miscalculation. Stupid.

I was always under the impression you liked bananas.....well, for obvious reasons.

I wish I could figure out a way to send you the USAW manual just to shut you up but I have a feeling it wouldn't help especially since you can't admit when you're wrong. Lets try this again...

1. Press Behind Neck
2. Snatch Press Behind Neck
3. Overhead Squat
4. Snatch Balance
5. Power Snatch

#4..what does it read in that progression of teaching?

The snatch balance is part of the lift Krank. The last frame in this progression is called the SNATCH BALANCE!




This is the last I will say about this you obtuse retard.  You showed a pic of a guy doing a FULL SNATCH (your direct quote and pic shown above).  The guy at NO POINT racked the bar on his shoulders and then did a snatch balance.  I pointed out to you what a snatch balance was.

Going by your absolute moronic logic....when did he do #5???  I will ask one last time...are you TRULY this stupid that you can't admit you are wrong? 
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: There is this one member who is stupid.... on: January 15, 2014, 05:29:10 PM
I don't think so. You still can't even figure out what the snatch balance was/is. Needless to say, you have more time than me. Need a job? I can use another chiropractor in my gym.

Show me where the guy had the bar racked on his shoulders which is an INTEGRAL part of the Snatch Balance.  Right?  Tell me I am wrong.

Why do you think I have more time than you?  I can work less than you and make more.  Owwwwwwwww

Krank is pissy. I think he needs a "WOD". Someone shoot one.

Certainly won't be you....never seen a vagina ever shoot a 'wod'.  Still want to play Joey?  Get that bolster seat for your office chair....could be a long night for you.

http://www.outsideonline.com/news-from-the-field/CrossFit-Coach-Severs-Spine.html

A CrossFit coach might never walk again after he severed his spine during a competition in California on Sunday.

Kevin Ogar was competing at a CrossFit event when he attempted a snatch—a lift in which a barbell is raised from the floor directly to an overhead position in a single motion—but dropped the weight on his back. According to his friends, Ogar separated his T11 and T12 vertebrae, severed his spinal cord, and is currently paralyzed from the waist down.

Because Ogar is uninsured, the CrossFit community has rallied together to help pay for the medical bills. In fewer than 48 hours, people from around the world donated more than $100,000, CrossFit Unbroken owner Matt Hathcock told CBS. 

“It was just kind of a freak accident,” says one CrossFitter who competed with Ogar last weekend. 

CrossFit’s high-intensity workouts have exploded in popularity, and there are now about 10,000 CrossFit gyms worldwide. Though CrossFit injury numbers vary, studies have pegged the CrossFit injury rate from as low as 16 percent to as high as 74 percent.


All an internet hoax.....
