    Made another try on 17.2 today and I really did not get close to accomplish what I wanted. 85 lousy reps, 15 reps short of my goal.

    Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 12 minutes of:
    2 rounds of:
    50-ft. weighted walking lunge
    16 toes-to-bars
    8 power cleans
    Then, 2 rounds of:
    50-ft. weighted walking lunge
    16 bar muscle-ups
    8 power cleans
    Etc., alternating between toes-to-bars and bar muscle-ups every 2 rounds.

    Men use 50-lb. dumbbells
    SCORE: 85 reps

    Tired as heck today! Was not easy to keep up the motivation. Played around with some very light snatches for 10-15 minutes and then ran an 18-minute EMOM. That was it!

    Conditioning
    EMOMx18
    Min 1: 18 Calorie Row
    Min 2: 15 Kipping HSPU
    Min 3: 50 DU

    Took a few days off as the body was saying no. Trying to eat some extra food today to see if I can get the body to drop the extra weight I still have. It's not much but it still needs to go. Today, during 17.3 it became profoundly clear that my calorie deficit, although very small, have made me lose strength. Could not get a 61kg Snatch up and my PR is 85kg.

    Prior to 8:00, complete:
    3 rounds of:
    6 chest-to-bar pull-ups
    6 squat snatches, 95 lb.
    Then, 3 rounds of:
    7 chest-to-bar pull-ups
    5 squat snatches, 135 lb.
    *Prior to 12:00, complete 3 rounds of:
    8 chest-to-bar pull-ups
    4 squat snatches, 185 lb.
    *Prior to 16:00, complete 3 rounds of:
    9 chest-to-bar pull-ups
    3 squat snatches, 225 lb.
    *Prior to 20:00, complete 3 rounds of:
    10 chest-to-bar pull-ups
    2 squat snatches, 245 lb.
    Prior to 24:00, complete 3 rounds of:
    11 chest-to-bar pull-ups
    1 squat snatch 265 lb.
    SCORE: 43 reps

    Listen to body. Don't risk injury.

    Need rest? A short break?

    Took some days off and added a cheat day. Made all the difference!

    Been training as normal the last few days just not updated the log. Ran CrossFit Open 17.4 today and got a lousy 164 reps. I really should be able to push that one much more and I'll do my second try on Monday. Under 10% body fat now so closing in on my cycle I am going to run. Need about 2-3 more weeks and I should be able to start!

    17.4
    55 deadlifts, 225 lb.
    55 wall-ball shots, 20-lb. ball to 10-ft. target
    55-calorie row
    55 handstand push-ups
    SCORE: 164 reps

    Have u heard of this? Interested in your thoughts. Seems like a blend of cross fit and traditional lifting.

    I did see MuscleScience posting about it. Not only do I love it but I am ripping that one straight off implementing it in my studio that is launching in September here in India. Fantastic concept and their sale, work 1h burn for 36h are brilliant coupled with "Group Personal," I mean, "Group Personal" simply awesome.

    But regarding staying lean, no way to compete with CrossFit, IMHO. Go in, work like a maniac, eat almost anything, repeat. I see more and more Physique competitors who are doing this in the offseason also to stay lean easier without having to be super anal about their diet; Steve Cook comes to mind as one of them.

    Started eating at my maintenance level on Saturday. Well, Saturday was a cheat day as it makes returning to baseline that much easier. Already feeling stronger. I'll stay at maintenance for a week and then I am going to kick the shit out of this new cycle I am running. I ran another round of CrossFit Open 17.4 today and got 175 reps. I thought I could get closer to 190 but not there this year. Still, in an overwhelming lead in the Masters' Category here in India and with one workout to go, I am hopeful I'll nail that one. Next year, which was always the goal, I am hoping to qualify for the Regional Games in Asia, and it is not that far off as I am ranked in the top 50 in that group now.

    "Open 17.4"

    AMRAP 13:
    55 Deadlifts (225/155#)
    55 Wallballs (20/14#)
    55 Calorie Row
    55 Handstand Push-ups
    SCORE: 175 reps

    I missed MS posts.

    Appreciate your thoughts. This looks like something my schedule can accommodate. It's a little pricey.

    I need to be in the right place b4 drop some coin for a month or so.

    Marketing plan is amazing. Men at work who NEVER exercise and don't eat right are having great success. 70 lbs in 2 months....2 days a week and little change in diet. Easy peasy.

    Seeing some pus buildup under my calluses today and it looks like the infection I had in a finger is not gone. Will delay my cycle start and eat at maintenance for a while longer as I am sure this will be a round of antibiotics.

    Went to my old gym today for some isolation movements. Chest, Biceps and Triceps. Took a little vanity picture at the same time.

    The last workout of the CrossFit Games was announced this AM, and I did it first thing when I got in. Considering I suck at Double-Unders this was quite the thing for me :-)

    10 rounds for time of:
    9 thrusters, 95 lb.
    35 double-unders
    SCORE: 27 minutes 54 seconds

    CrossFit Open is over for this year and I am officially ranked number 1 in the country in my Masters Class. Feel damn good about that one! In the top 60 in Asia and since I have done CrossFit for 284 days in total I am very pleased. I have a great setup with coaching starting tomorrow and going for one year and hoping to make it to the regional games in 2018 or at least I will 100% say I tried it with all that I am. Considering they only select 10 men from the Latin America, Asia, and Africa Regions combined it is going to be harsh to make it.

    Logging will continue as normal starting Wednesday. Only one year to go :-) Always forward, never backward.

    Thank you! It's pretty funny how much better I look and feel ever since I a became less anal about my diet and combined that with a switch to CrossFit. Just fits my personality better.

    Much appreciated. It truly is insane amounts of work but it's paying off both in terms of appearance (which I care much less about these days) and in work capacity.

    Need a couple days off so I did some mobility work today combined with a VERY light workout. Will pick things up on Monday after receiving this from the coach today:

    FROM COACH:
    April 3 – May 29

    8 Weeks

    It’s time to build the foundation. Announcing “Silverback”, our first training cycle of the 2018 season. In Silverback, we have the potent combination of two goals – Strength, and Durability. There is no substitute for raw power in athleticism. Yet with that raw power comes a responsibility. To take care of one’s body. To be strong is one piece. To be able to use it is another. When we increase our raw power *and* our ability to use it… we turn bulletproof. We’re moving better while we set personal records. We’re less injury prone, allowing us to train hard throughout the week. We increase our understanding of the simple, yet highly effective slow lifts – the squat, deadlift, and press. And, most notably… we become very, very strong. It’s a combination that results in the base of our training for the 2018 training season. This is our backbone – our foundation to an 11-month journey. And it all starts this Monday. Here’s to 2018, and becoming bulletproof.

    “Silverback”
    Weekly Template
    Monday – Squat Waves + Squat Accessory + Midline
    Tuesday – Strict Gymnastic Skills + Conditioning
    Wednesday – Unilateral Strength + Pressing + Conditioning
    Thursday – Rest Day
    Friday – Repetition Squatting + Conditioning + Midline
    Saturday – Olympic Barbell Cycling + Conditioning
    Sunday – Rest Day

    Thursday so Chest and Arms day (a.k.a Isolation Movement Day!) and I quite literally thought the pump was going to kill me today. Just really managed to push it really hard today, much more so than in a while. On top of that, I have my mobility movements from the coach. All in all a good workout day!

    NOTE: I signed up for the competition they are running on these forums. Just a dumbass move on my part as I 1. Will be traveling, 2. Are only focusing on strength and CrossFit, 3. Do not care what I look like at this moment. But hey, I signed up so got to live with that.

    UPPER BODY
    LATS - FOAM ROLL
    TRAPS - LACROSSE BALL
    PEC MINOR/BICEP - LACROSSE BALL
    SHOULDER TO FLOOR
    CHILDS POSE

    LOWER BODY
    QUAD/ADDUCTOR - FOAM ROLL
    COUCH STRETCH
    STADDLE POSE
    PIGEON POSE
    DORSIFLEXION (ANKLE)

    It is called most improved competition , so technically, improving strength will have to be looked as well as physique.

    lacrosse balls hurt! i can feel all the lumps and tight thick tendons in my legs when using it. hurts like hell!

    But regarding staying lean, no way to compete with CrossFit, IMHO. Go in, work like a maniac, eat almost anything, repeat. I see more and more Physique competitors who are doing this in the offseason also to stay lean easier without having to be super anal about their diet; Steve Cook comes to mind as one of them.
    I'm shredding weight like a mofo doing all this running and am getting really good at it. Really like Orange Theory's cardio aspect. I think once my knee feels more comfortable and stable I will also add crossfit back into my routine.

    For two of my physique shows I was heavily into crossfit. It really helped me lean up and put a ton of mass in my legs, even though you don't show your legs. Lol

    Also, been lurking on this log for awhile. Very impressive and has been a source of motivation in my own training. Thanks for sharing it all.

    This is a massive 5000sq place which is sort of open on the sides. No way AC could be installed even if I wanted to pay for it myself. Just got to suck it up :-)
