First video was primarily "front lever," and "planche," which are both common gymnastics training exercises. Not saying I could do them, but I agree, an advanced crossfitter should be able to do either. As for the second video...it's just a kipping pullup with a clap at the top. I may not knock out 20, but I check to see if I could do clapping pullups before I sat down, and they are definitely doable.


That said, I am still trying to work my way into a planche/planche-pushup. It takes a lot of balance, in addition to strength. Not the easiest thing in the world.

This is after three weeks on it. Mon, Wed and Friday. I changed to Leg Curl from Leg extensions. Any help let me know. I also did running for the first time in about 2 months. Felt great to run, no more pain in my calf or hamstring. I can't wait to see after another month. Thank You

Blitz, with compound movements...
 
Well, I didn't get to start last week, due to some family issues. Monday I started my experimental Blitz, with sample compoud movement.


I'll keep the weights to myself, as I'm rehabbing from injury, and the numbers are embarrassing ;-)

I started with just one round. Tomorrow will be two rounds, friday will be 3.

Lat Pull: goal reps 60, actual reps 56
Chest Fly: goal reps 60, actual reps 52
Rear delt fly: Goal reps 60, actual reps 53
Hamstring curl: Goal reps 72, actual reps 65
Clean & press: Goal reps 32, actual reps 26 (low rep counts due to the large range of motion and very strict attention to form)
Deadlift: goal reps 56, actual reps 47
Back squat: goal reps 60, actual reps 45


I'm going to dial back the weight on the deadlift and back squat, as I'm a little sore today. Everything else went well, and I'll work on the rep count for C&P once I'm sure I can do it without injury.

Good Thinking
 
This is interesting for me. You seem to have it right. I had not figured multiple joint exercises and am aware that rep counts well necessarily be lower but velocity should not be. I'll run some numbers on combined movements.Good thinking on the "soreness" factor.

Thanks for the good work.

update
 
So after tweaking my workout and doing lying hamstring curls. I can say that it has improved my run time. I used the elyptical trainner since my ankle was still tender but on my usual level of resistance i kept a 9.5 mph pace for 3 miles without being over excerted. Nomore hard breathing after one mile no burning in my legs after a few minutes. I have a PT test coming up and i will post my before and after run times. Thank Blittzz

Finally talked two guys into trying it with. After them whinning about not feeling sore the next day we adjusted the weights a little more to get 1/4 the max weight and they enjoy it. Will keep yall posted.

Just an update: been out of it for a while...dealing with some pretty severe chemical burns. As of last week, though I'm able to work out again, and will be back to it this coming week. I will likely just start over, as several weeks have likely set me back to my starting point. Will post results.

The gym on my FOB is very small and most of the time it is pretty crowded. Could I do two or three sets depending on the day of each lift and then move on to the next? Would that mess up the routine to badly?

In the gym it is not feasible to have that many machines/areas tied up at one time. I am going on R&R very soon and when I return I am going to start Blitzing.

Big questions for starting Blitz
 
I just read 24 (24!) pages of thread, and am glad to see everyone's pleasant suprise at such results using Blitz. It's got me psyched! I'd love to be a SFAS-Prep guinea pig :lifter (PM me if you're interested, no ship-date yet). But a couple questions, which might help future Blitzers:

1. What would an effective home/portable Blitz gym have in it, if you can only access pulley-machines at your local gym?

2. Is Blitz possible without a workout buddy?

3. Is there a best circuit of exercises to prepare for 18X, or does it depend on the person's physical fitness at the time?

4. I've seen the Science behind Blitz mentioned, and would love to read a little of the theory behind the whole system, if you've got the time.

Thanks, and I hope that this will help inform the confused and curious.

Your first exercise events should probably be rereading the rules and stickies and running to the Intro thread to take care of business there.

Don't sweat that. You've already made a friend.

Oops
 
Could've sworn I posted an intro, looks like I did not. Sorry for breach of SOP!

Check the "Bodylastics" band system. also there the Coture band system but you'll need to augment with some lighter bands to Blitz, same with the "Tower of Power'" by Body be Jack. there is a pretty good Lecerage system built buy "Stamina" called the "Viper".

2. Is Blitz possible without a workout buddy?
Very difficult to count reps without a Partner. but possible with a good timer or large sweep hand clock hinging in front of you.

3. Is there a best circuit of exercises to prepare for 18X, or does it depend on the person's physical fitness at the time?
Blitz is an exercise Method and allows the individual to design circuits to match needs. PM me for suggestions if you want.

4. I've seen the Science behind Blitz mentioned, and would love to read a little of the theory behind the whole system, if you've got the time.
PM me is you'd want more than I've sent you.

Thanks, and I hope that this will help inform the confused and curious.[/QUOTE

Hope this helps...and anyone using should post some for the others.

A couple of weeks probably will not set you back much...Let me know... Good luck.
