Mark - No gym to go to so I am stealing your burpee count today for my workout - 81 burpees in the livingroom.

New gym tomorrow. I'm scared but determined.

Mark Ervi, Hey, I'm a crossfitter in Sand Springs. Going on 9 mos. now. Turned 50 last July. Noticed your thread of posting WOD logs. Not much into that but doing crossfit out of my garage. I generally run about one week behind in the WOD's just so I have time to research and practice any exercises that I'm not familiar with. Thanks for the tip on the 100 burpee challange. Never heard of it before your post. Decided to go for it and started yesterday. I've been lurking around this board for some time, just not into posting stuff. Keep up the good work.

First day at new gym - bodybuilder joint at the end of my block. Went in with a positive attitude.

In advance, I told the trainer (who is a former bodybuilder) that I wouldn’t use machines. Consequently, he assessed my fitness with the following:
WU: 24 dumbbell swings - 10#, 24 back extensions , sit-ups (1 min), shoulder mobility

SDLHP – 1 min – 30# bar
Burpees (90 sec)
Push presses – 1 min – 30# bar
OH squats –1 min - 20# bar
Single-leg hops across floor – 1 min ea leg, 45 sec ea leg, 30 sec ea leg
Mountain climbers – 2 min
Back squats with a jump (hollow tube – no weight) – 1 min
Plank – 2 min
Walking lunges

Barely broke a sweat.

Going to steal Mark’s burpee count again tonight and do 82.

Going back tomorrow – Hoping to see some deadlifts, cleans or box jumps thrown in somewhere. What are the chances that I can convert this guy to a CrossFit mentality?!?

Thomas, hope you will become a regular over-50 post-er. I know you will be our first one from Middle-Earth.

Diane, your "barely broke a sweat" test of fitness looked like it had several Crossfit elements, and would be quite the WOD test with just a little higher weights. Hope you are on to a good thing at the new gym.

Diane,

Sorry about the loss of your gym and trainer......What an awesome attitude you have with respect to the new gym and personnel there! That kind of change is always difficult, especially when someone is not really well-versed with CF.

Take care. Best to you and yours for the holidays!
