Late - 12/2/09 - Grace action

Being addicted to working out (literally), I usually get 2 solid workouts a day, which is not the greatest training regiment for everyone. Allowing time for the repair of micro traum to the sacromeres (basic unit of function in myofibers) is essiential for making observable gains. By reducing inflammation and letting the reticulum covering the sacromere to repair, not only will muscle fibers be strengthened, but soreness is reduced. How does one do this? Wait adequate time for YOUR body and do not focus on 1 region of muscles. By focusing on region, microtraum of the sacromeric reticulum turns into trauma or worse severe trauma, which tranlaste into longer repair time and serious inhibitions in your ability to preform (i.e. range of motion, flexibility..etc).

Morn Workout

5x500 m row (1:43, 1:41, 1:40, 1:43, 1:38)
with 1:1 work:rest cycle

Evening Workout

30 Clean & Jerk at 156 lbs

Time: 4:32

Things to note in this WOD:
Its 156 lbs because Crossfit Ames somehow acquired 41 lb bars? I am not 7 seconds off Josh Everetts time at the 2008 Crossfit Game's Final WOD. The WOD consisted of 30 squat cleans and jerk, which I most certainly did not do.
