Deadhang pull-up ladders: 1-2-3 X 3
21-15-9 reps for time of:
Deadlift 125# (155# Rx'd)
Ring dips (substituted 2 for 1 push-ups)
My time: 10:28. Those push-ups were killer, and maybe 1/4 of them were legal chest-to-floor. The rest were as low as I could get though. I am afraid of push-ups or heavy deadlifts showing up at Sectionals. I don't want to scale! Ugh, there goes my stomach flipping over again.
But the good news - I got the deadhang pull-ups! For real now, no half-kipping or inchworming. I can go from arms locked to chin over the bar with no kipping, and I can do 3 in a row. Very happy about this! Now not only do I look as buff as Linda Hamilton in T2, I can do pull-ups like her too (good because there isn't always a good kipping setup when you're in lockdown).
- I love Son of Grok's rant about Lean Cuisine. I feel the same way!
- A yummy combination from CrossFit Santa Cruz Central: scallops and bacon! I think I'd simplify the recipe a bit - skip the multiple pans and the olive oil, use the bacon fat to saute everything, shove the veggies to the side of the pan while cooking the scallops, and throw the spinach in with everything at the end. Definitely worth a try, I think.
