6 hours, which is 2x what I got the night before. Someone broke the sprinkler head in their room and the fire department evacuated the building for 2 hours. At 2:30 in the morning.

4 1/2 hours of interupted rest (not even sleep). Instead of doing today's WOD, I'm working on my deadlift form. With both the deadlift and squat, I've been rounding my back a little when I get to the bottom of the movement.

Patrick,

That pelvic tilt is a result of tight hamstrings pulling your ischial tuberosity and thus your pelvis out of alignment. Your hamstrings are a Lot stronger than your lower back muscles and no matter how hard you try and set your back, you will always get that rounding unless you start an aggressive stretching routine.

If you come to class tonight i can show you some stretches to help you get deep in that hole.

i got 6.5 hours roughly. i am a light sleeper. wind can wake me up. it's not fun at all! the night before i dont think i ever slept, or maybe i dreamt that i was just barely awake. the only nights i can sleep like a rock is if we do some crazy wod, otherwise i just cant get deep sleep.

Press4x3@165

Power Clean8x3@135

50 Burpees for time - 2:40

Had one of those light going off in my head moments during the cleans where I realized that the faster I got my elbows around, the less the bar crashed on to my chest. I have probably been told that 100 times in as many ways, but it didn't really click until just then.

Unless this project hits a screeching halt tomorrow, I should be seeing you all in class on Saturday.

I read an artile on strong lifts recently on glute activation. While doing some overhead squats to warm up today, I realized that I definitely was not using my glutes the way I'm supposed to when squatting. Once I started squeezing those properly, I was flying out of the hole.

Now I'm exited to do some squat work with this new knowledge.

Workout (skills night):

some version of the CFWU60 second hand stand against wall30 seconds total free hand stand (many attempts)60 seconds total frog position (step 1 in the planche progression)60 seconds total tuck front lever (step 1 in the lever progression)double unders work until my arches hurt

Is anyone else using http://Logsitall.com to keep up with their stats? I created an account and entered a few workouts from my notebook yesterday. I found it pretty tedious from a usability standpoint, but long-term it might be useful for progress tracking if I can get past those issues and use it regularly.

Breakfast - 8am

2 tacos with extra meat and extra cheese from Del Taco.

Greg had 3.

Workout with Lauren in 20.

I never thought I'd say this but here it goes -

I love the Zone. This shit works.
Allison - how long are you in AZ for?

How's the Zone working for you? In terms of performance increase, fat loss, energy...

Are you on 10 or 11 blocks?

Margie: AT LEAST until the Games.

I'm on 10 blocks.

I try to do a workout before breakfast and like to break my blocks up into 5 2 block meals.

I'm dropping fat like crazy. Glassman said he can't believe how fast I'm responding to the diet and how my body is changing.

I'm recovering faster. I'm able to do 3 workouts a day with energy to spare.

I feel lighter and faster but I'm putting up bigger numbers than I ever have. Good combination.

I'm not having crazy hunger pains or intense cravings anymore. I didn't think they would ever stop. I still feel hungry throughout the day but it's only a little and I've comfortable with the feeling.

I didn't think I would ever be successful with the diet. I also thought I was going to prove Greg wrong and that I was the exception to the rule. I Was Wrong. The Zone is working.

I can't wait to see where it takes me.



10am

workout with Lauren in their garage.DEADLIFT THERAPY

I'm going back to the basics and concentrating like I never have before on technique. Keeping my back set.

Played with sets of 5 around 165? The weight is nothing but going slowly and staying in control of it is exhausting!

Greg and Lauren gave me great tips and fixed me up. Lots more work to do though.
adam - i'm bill patton - the logsitall guy - i've been working hard to make the system easier - but the sheer diversity of the crossfit workouts make it hard to have a 'single click' entry system.

I did set up a ranking of the day - so it is now easy to get the ranking/stats for the main crossfit workout of the day:www.logsitall.com/about_crossfitranking.asp

if you ever have ideas/suggestions/complaints - please don't hesitate to get in touch wkpatton@aol.com
