Hope that the trainers look at this post because I have a question about the back extension. It wasn’t the best time for Daniel and I to fully discuss it this morning. In the back extension, are your hips immobile and your back curves up into parallel position or does it stay tight throughout the movement? I looked at the main sites video and it looked like the lady was curving up. I just wanted to get some clarity for any future workouts.
Strictly speaking, a back extension involves curving your back into position, kind of like a snake. A hip extension means keeping your back extended (flat) during the movement. However, we don’t do back extensions for time because it’s meant to be a slow and controlled movement, and we don’t want you pushing intensity without controlling your midline. Therefore, whenever you see back extension in a timed WOD, we generally do hip extensions.
You were doing it right. What I was trying to convey during the WOD to you was not to hyper extend at the top. Thinking back I wasn’t really clear on that to you. When I said keep a straight back I meant when you were at the top position. But yeah, you looked good on what you were doing as far as I could tell.
Again, Most of the WOD was a FOG. I was pretty much just listening to what you said was next on the list and going with it, and I am never quite sure if my movements are correct so I just wanted to get some clarity on the definitions. I agree that I tend to Hyper extend in many movements in the fear that I won’t complete the full movement.
Thanks Jeff and Daniel for clearing up my confusion.
30:06 (bar dips, GHD situps, 25lb dumbbells)
28:14 (3/4 pood KB Hang Clean Squats, “Boris” KB swings)
I thought I was doing 1.5 pood KB swings but it was only 1.
In asking Dr. Google about the absurd term “pood”, I found this article [http://www.dragondoor.com/articler/mode3/391/].
Henceforth the 2-pood KBs shall be called Ivan with friends Boris and Igor (1-pood and 1.5-pood respectively).
This WOD was rough!
15:36 rx’d… I love chippers, but this one was tough!
Silver reps 13:44 I did not use a band for my pull ups and I did only 1 rope climb. Great job everyone!
16:38 rx’d. tough one with the 2pood KBS.
Today was my first day back in a while. I did two wods today. I made up yesterdays wod during the 5:15 – 3 rounds for time: 800m run, 50 Hip Extensions, 50 Situps – Time was 23:26
Second workout I did todays wod with Gold rep scheme and Silver and Bronze weights. It was a mix match of all sorts. Mainly, just want to do this workout with everyone. Time was 17:47.
Overall, had a lot of fun working out with everyone and coaching today. Another great day at CFI for me.
Had a lot of fun with a big 6:30 class. Congrats to David for coming in a close second to today’s fastest time from Michael. Outstanding time from Robyn as well.
