Thursday 110623

Ricky Frausto Filed Under:
Rest Day

Pose running is broken into three phases or concepts: Pose (position), Fall (lean), and Pull (hamstring vs. hip flexor). In the video, Brian discusses the last phase and introduces a drill to help improve an otherwise weak pull. An incomplete pull of the hamstring causes the hip flexor to compensate and finish the work thus bringing the leg out in front and potential heel strikes (halting movement).

P.S. remember, this is not running on your toes....... forefoot makes contact first but heel will kiss the ground thereafter.

  2. Did Monday's WOD today and finished in 24:38 Rx'd. I stuck with normal kipping pullups this time to work on building more strength and since I've been told many times that butterfly pullups are not good for your shoulders over time. I think I lost quite a bit of time here because butterflys are so much faster. This also meant more time hanging on to the bar which was harder on my grip which made the swings even tougher. Pretty much what I am saying is I have a bunch of excuses :)

    But seriously, I am glad I did regular kipping and I think I am going to stick with them for most of the time for now on. Maybe on that chance day I want to try and kill a WOD I will go back but not for normal day to day training.

  6. I guess I should not have poked fun at the double unders from yesterday - they found me here at Crossfit Invictus and they brought their buddy 'Man Makers' with them.

    Four sets of:
    Box Step-Ups x 6-8 reps @ 2111
    Rest 45-60 seconds
    Single-Arm Kettlebell Row x Max Unbroken Reps each arm @ 2010
    Rest 45-60 seconds;

    and then,

    Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 8 minutes of:
    20 Double-Unders
    10 Pull-Ups
    5 Man-Makers

    I almost got three rounds completed - the beer from last night was dragging me down.
