Tyler Smith said...

As I embark upon this last training cycle before my sectionals on the 6th-7th I just want to say... Thank you. I feel extremely prepared and focused going into this weekend and I owe it to you and the amazing community of Big Dawgs which follow this program. Many of these workouts have pushed me far beyond what I though I was capable of and I am certain it will pay off when the timer starts. Good luck to all who will compete this weekend and in the weeks to come and awesome job to those who have already competed. You guys/gals kick serious ass and I am lucky to be a part of such a strong community.

I love little Aubrey Rose!... Rory, ur one lucky daddy!...

Trevor Salmon said...

Hey Calgary Dawgs. Just wanted to update you on the first day at the World Masters Athletics Championships. I advanced out other prelims and into the semis but now waiting to see if i had a fast enough time to move to the finals. I have the 200m scheduled mid day and and the 60m final hopefully as well. Man there were some fast times. One guy from the US had 7:05 in the prelims

Lindsey said...

Aubrey makes her OPT debut!... Lookin good, girl!...

B. 106 reps.

Did "ordinary" GHD with touch floor/feet. Probably did that wrong. McGyver type GHD. Need a real one!
last front squat was to fast, but still Fsq PR. Also too fast on 2x100.
seated press was strange. Never ever done.
percentage seated press vs CGBP = ~76%

Did this one yesterday

A1. 65-70-75(F)
A2. 13(PR!),2 – 11,4 – 6,3,3,3

think i was able to find gears outside of slow and top speed

Rohan said...


I am decking out my garage gym. Would you mind letting me know which brand/model GHD you use. Thanks man!

Late March:

A1. Last set of 2 got 180 and as I tried to go for another I crashed down with the bar. My nervous system shut down. Couldn't finish.

A2. 115 second set of 2, stopped after my crash. Couldn't finish also.

B. 115 GHDs.

I feel weird.

david83 said...

Front Squats and Military press had to be super seted because of time. Also I used dumbells for the press and the heaviest I had was 70lbs.
Front Squats
225-3 235-3 245-3 255-2 265-2 275-2
285-1 290-1 295-1 (F)

Military press -slow tempo
60- 3
70 per hand slow tempo - 3,3,2,2,1,1

thank you


OPT said...

rohan...the choice you makes depends on your economics...my suggestion with equipment that largely differs from others...spend the money up front as it does not pay off over time...hence i'd suggest an Atlantis GHD 9 - http://www.atlantis-fit.com/products/item_img.aspx?prod=D-227&ext=jpg

Didnt have the right bench to do the military press so subbed with strict press. I have the horrible tendancy of arching my back when I am having issues getting the weight up so I played around a lot between 70-75lbs just focusing on tightening my core.

B: 113

GHDs felt GREAT!! Thanks for the tips Roch, it helped a lot!!

Michael said...

A1. 165, 185, 205
A2. Unbroken- fast
Run- felt good
Foam roll 20 minutes, stretch 20 minutes

I want to second what Tyler said to Coach. I train with Tyler and we can't thank you enough for what you've done for us with this program. We look at some of these workouts that now give us not fear and think back if someone had told me to do it a year ago and I would have laughed at them. I'm by far the best shape of my life and feel completely and totally prepared for this coming weekend. Thanks to the community of Big Dawgs here and I hope we can represent well. We are in the MS/AL sectional and we will keep you guys posted. Good luck to all others who are competing this weekend. My scripture I am remembering through this week and weekend is
Hebrews 12:11 which says "For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields(B) the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it."

Late Marcher

Caught this on my way to a plane to Narita - had to cut short. Didn't think I would get it in so I did Gwen at 135 yesterday.

A1. 185x3,205x3,225x3,245x2(PR),225x2
A2. 115x3,135x3,155x3,165x1,175x0
B. 15,15,15,14,10,12,10,10 = 101

Front squats felt heavy today - legs tired. Did presses from standing rack since I dont have a bench. These felt good.

GHD Overhead Situps were strict and fine until the last two rounds when my lower back cramped up again. Got a headache (always) and wave of nausea from these. Is this typical?

A1) 165/175/185/190/190/190/195/200/200/205F/205F - all Ass to Grass
A2) 95/115/125/135/140/140/145/150/150

% of CGBP = 77%

B) 11/11/10/10/9/9/8/8/8/7 did ten sets by mistake but very happy with the range of motion and speed of the last 4 sets. usually by then I am alternating hands but I was able to keep both hands over head and focused on my breathing!

200 is a 1RM PR by 10#

So close on 205 got down on tempo ass to grass and got stuck at parallel or at least what felt like parallel and I felt my back start to round out and just dropped it to save myself.

Thanks man that helps. I really appreciate your fast response.

Late marcher


A1. 115, 135, 135, 145, 145, 145, 155, 160 (PR)
A2. 85, 95, 95, 105, 110, 110, 115, 120(f)
B. 121 (15 every round, 16 on the last)
Military Press/CCBP = 115/135 = 0.85

Felt really fresh today. All sets of FS very challenging after 2nd round. Took me a while to find my weight on the military press. Man my efficiency on these is weird; 115 felt relatively easy, but 120 was way too much. Decided to stop after 8 rounds having hit a PR on the FS and failing on the military press.

Probably could have cranked out a 130 on the GHDs if I had someone timing me, or some kind of a beeping interval timer.

Also, has anyone seen the videos of the Utah-Nevada sectional?...that song they use is awesome, it just pumps me up, but I can't find it out what it is called for the life of me. If you know, please let me know, I must add it to my workout playlist.

The TEN TENdencies of a Crossfit Athlete
By: Mario Ashley
Crossfit Redline

1. The stopwatch is your best friend, NOT your enemy.

2. When, dealing with injury (notice I said when, not if) stop what your doing and take care of it. Period.

3. Standards are also your best friend, NOT your enemy. Without them we would never know our true potential.

4. There is no such thing as weakness if you work at them often enough.

5. Know your strengths and keep them that way.

6. Smile: It cost nothing but means everything.

7. Once you have mastered the mechanics of a movement it's your duty and obligation to teach it to others. A great coach is a by-product of a great athlete.

8. If you don't like the Zone Diet then consume 40g of Carbohydrates, 30g of Protein, and 30g of Fat with each meal. Dumbass.

9. Goals: We all have the same kinds of goals just different degrees.

10. Nobody is forcing you to do Crossfit so have FUN with it.

B. 12/12/12/12/12/13/13/13=99


Notes: Felt really good on the FS, so I tried for a PR and got it on the last set. This was not at the prescribed tempo however, just a max effort on something that I have been working on since September. SMP felt good until the last set when the CNS shut down and I couldn't get the bar back up off my clavicles. Gamed the GHD's to avoid flaring the L psoas that is still a bit tender from last week's GHDs. Good, good day - thanks coach!

Pete said...

A1. 185(3),205(3),215(3),220(2),225(2),230(2),235(1),225(1),205(1)

(87.5% of my CGBP 205)

Subbed toes to bar
-19, 15, 12, 11, 10, 11, 11, 10,

Very happy with the front squats. I hurt my back pretty bad a few months ago doing these and subconsciously I've been overly cautious. I think I've finally overcome that. I scaled back after 235 for 1 because that 1 rep was definitely a maximum a effort.

Military press was awkward to remove from the rack.

Had no GHD machine so I subbed Knees to Elbows.

Coach, is my i rep max on seated shoulder press supposed to be so close to my 1 rep max on the CGBP?

Katrina Burton said...


A1.) 3s@ 95, 115, 125, 2s@ 130, 135, 140, 1s@ 155, 165(PR), 170(f) SOOO CLOSE

A2.) 3s@ 55, 65, 70, 2s@ 75, 80, 80 1s@ 80, 80, 80... need to go buy a couple more 5# iron plates to fill in the gap we have between 80 and 95#. 80# is 80# of my close grip bench press

B.) No GHD so subbed unanchored abmat situps with 2 hand straight arm touch over head. 21, 22, 23, 22, 22, 22, 21, 23

1k run


Catalyst warm-up

Presses were easier than I anticipated, maybe 5 lbs. light on all sets. Pull-ups were fast and butterfly. First time running in months since knee issues. Went at 5k pace for all but a 100m stretch at about 85%. Knee felt good during and only mildly irritated after.

@ OPT @ 7AM with Gord

A1. 182/201/206, 216/231/236, 242/257/272/. Depth felt great with new Adistar lifting shoes. Thanks DJ
A2. 110/120/120, 125/130/130, 135/140/145. First time @ SMP. Limited by getting it out of cage safely. Awkward angle clearing the rack. Learned skill still to come.

B. 14/14/12/12/12/11/11/12=98

Run like the wind Trevor!

Impromptu rest day......shoulder is angry with me.
Feels A LOT better today than it did yesterday but I figured I should give it one more day of rolling/stretching to try and let it settle down even more.

B. 15/15/15/15/15/15/14/15 Total:119

I don't know my 1RM max for close grip benches. I know I can do 125 for 4+ reps. So my guess is the my 1RM would be around 150ish pounds. Based on this guess A2 was about 80% of my 1RM of close grip bench. However, my A2 were not exactly the military press that OPT asked for. First of all, the way the adjustable bench I have allows for adjustments, I was probably closer to 75 degrees. Also, the back of the bench is so tall that I highest up I could touch was about 1" below my clavicles, becasue I was unable to move my head out of the way of the bar path. I had no spotter to lift out to me for these and they were really awkward to get unracked. I also only have one power rack, so I had to completely strip and reload the between every set to do the front squats and military press.

Really bummed about the two fails at the end of my front squats. The 190lbs. single felt great, so I was surprised I missed the 200 and 195 attempts.

Looking forward to the double tomorrow!

B 105 (these felt real good)

Front squat pr for a single is 260, so 255 at 30x0 i was happy with BUT it felt VERY heavy. My front squat is definatley lacking compared to other lifts.

- PWO: 40gP/40gC (Shake: ReFuel and MRM Metabolic Whey), 8g BCAA-G
- 60 min later: steak, chicken sausage, apple, almond butter

- Not sure what my 1RM of Close Grip Bench is, but I got 185 for 4 on 20100210 with tempo of 30X0.
- Front Squats felt good on my knee and was getting good depth (far below parallel). Need to work on keeping a more upright back on my ascent.
- Lower back was leaving the bench as the loads increased in Military Press.
- GHDs felt really good...pace was exactly the same for first 15 seconds of every set. Managed to get 144 by keeping 18 throughout. Struggled a little toward the end to keep 18, but was getting it with about a second to spare on the last couple sets.
- Only one GHD and two guys doing this one, so we just did 30 seconds on and immediately switched. May have resulted in the rests being about 3 seconds long on each round.

Grant, nice pick up with the AdiStars! Eric was rocking his shirt today...thanks again.

LuLu said...

I worked out at the Y today on my lunch break and it was pretty hilarious. I was right beside an O lift class and had some lovely men tell me how much the bar weighed. Then they were kind enough to lift the 70lb padded bar away from the rack for me cuz "it might be too heavy" :) hee hee.

A1. 110x3,120x3,130x2,135x2,
140x1,145x1. Wooohooo my PR in December was 120lbs. I cut this short cuz of time.

A2. 70lbsx3,75x3,80x2,85x2, 90x1,95x1. Did strict press. I am soo close to 100lbs, can't seem to get it yet without severe arch in my back so stopped at 95 :)

GHD's tomorrow. Had not time left.

Lindsey said...

Nursing a knee injury from last Thursday...

A1. Modified to single leg box dips with bar in front rack position. Kept weight to bar only on both legs hoping to prevent further imbalance

A2. 65/75/85/85/85/85/95/95/95- roughly 80% of CHBP

B. 17,18,19,20,20,20,20,21- 155 total - hanging on to the GHD with my legs hurts so modified to anchored on an abmat. Two hand touch top and bottom.

Late March

FS: 205, 210, 215, 220, 225, 230, 235, 240, 245
SMP: 145, 150, 150, 155, 155, 160, 165, 165, 170F

Breathed at the top of each rep but tried not to rest any more than that. First time I've done this kind of rep timing scheme--definitely hard to stay tight and maintain control during eccentric portion, especially on singles. Failed on last SMP single. Spotter grabbed the bar when it slowed but I don't think I would have gotten it anyway.

GHDs: 12, 13
Only did 2 rounds because I haven't been on a GHD in a few months and rhabdo didn't sound fun.

March 7th

A1. 140, 155, 170(failed)
A2. All unbroken

The 155x2 felt so easy, I got carried away and went for 170 and missed it.

Run felt ok, I seemed to get really winded at the end of the 100%.

Mobility work felt like a little slice of heaven.

Not sure of 1RM CGBP but guessing around 225. So ... percentage = 80%.


Front squats felt ok, tempo was great throughout. Happy with the 5lb PR.

SMP was good, got up to my 1RM shoulder press.

GHDs - first time I've done over 100, after round 4 was really feeling the stretch in my lower abs ... hopefully tomorrow morning will be alright. Happy with my results though.

Early March

A1. 150, 165, 180

Notes: Thats like a 15 or 20 pound pr for the press and i felt like I had at least 5 more pounds in me. Despite being really sore from push ups, everything felt good today.

A2--only 3 sets, was aggravating neck/shoulder 60(3), 70(2), 80(1)--not sure what close grip BP is, maybe 90 or 95 #
B. 4 sets--11 reps each time. 1st time able to do this exercise in a long time due to back pain, so didn't push too hard

No idea for my SMP/CGBP, to guess probaly about 80%. Tempo was good through out. All squats were ass to grass except the last 2 reps were iffy on =. Now I've got some good data for some pr's.

GHD reps were low, but it was the first time I felt consistent and I didn't feel like I was going to tear something.

Presses felt really good, think I could have got 175 2-3 times.

First time ever that CTB has felt that fast and easy. Where was that when we did the 50CTB/50 burpees?!

Run felt good as well.

Craig said...

A1. 150/160/165

I could tell when i woke up that I was not feeling it today. Had to drag my butt to the gym, and struggled with the front squat, CNS just not willing today. On a good note have not pressed over body weight for approx. 3 years.

I’d be lying if I said I enjoyed squatting…managed only singles from 250# on…
