Training Board is…

Training Board is basically my gym notebook.

In theory, I can also blog in a more public spirited way about weightlifting, nutrition, weight loss, etc. But mostly, I just use this blog to track my workouts. And surfing.

If anything I have posted seems useful to you, let me know with a comment.

About Me

I'm a level I "sports performance certified" USAW coach, and I train, and work as a trainer at Asheville Strength and Conditioning, a great little gym here in Asheville, N.C.

I work with clients who want to get strong and fit, and am especially happy with helping older or detrained individuals.

My own training now is more focused on developing strength and using basic lifts and classic strength and conditioning techniques. A lot of the older portions of this blog deal with CrossFit and reflect my journey into fitness self-awareness. I first discovered CrossFit, back in late 2008. I learned a lot from CrossFit's "fitness as sport" model of training -- and benefited tremendously from training with my friends at CrossFit Asheville -- and furthermore I must credit my interest in CrossFit for opening my eyes to the larger world of training for strength athletics, Olympic-style weightlifting, powerlifting, and other arcane approaches to moving the Iron around.

CrossFit Asheville WODS • May 2, 2009, at 10:46 am

Saturday WOD — Carrier Park

I had strong nutrition yesterday, followed by a good night’s sleep, of about 7 hours, with plenty of coffee and a 2.5 block breakfast. Then I hooked up with the CrossFit Asheville Crew (Shanna, Corey, Corey H, Evan, Dan, Katie, Tom, and a couple of others) at Carrier Park in West Asheville for a Saturday morning throwdown.

We did agility drills, followed by 2 rounds of Pushups (12), Situps (12), Squats (12 — second round overhead). Then hip mobility stretches, and practice one arm dumbbell power snatches.

The WOD: 10 rounds for time of

LEFT cloverleafs,
14 x one arm DB power snatch (7 reps each / alternating arms) (I used 20#)
RIGHT cloverleafs
30′ Walking Lunges

My time: 17’56″

I powered through this workout and came in first… largely because I used 20# weights; the other guys used 25#, 30#, and even 45#. I did one set of 14 with the 45# when I was done. I can do them, but it would have taken me 40 minutes to do this WOD. I’ll have to think about that for next time.
