Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

Glad to see everyone got a decent workout in today. My WOD fell apart pretty quick after a 3xCFWU as follows:
What was supposed to have been 5 rounds for time of
155lb hang squat clean x 9
3 rope ascents
turned into this:
wheels came off before I got started good.
warmed up with HSC @ 95, 115 and 135. when I started the clock I fell apart with 155lbs...so I scaled to 135lb and felt so crappy I scaled yet again to 115 and re-started the clock. Felt so freaking uncomfortable with the HSC that I defaulted to front squats at 115lbs and 25 jumping towel pull ups....all 5 rounds took me 18:08 and left me smoked but feeling inadequately trained...I really gotta find a cert...

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

090324 TUESDAY

Training Class at Globo.

Warm-up:
Stairmaster (subbed for treadmill):
10:00, L2 - L8, HR to 125 or so.
Shoulder pass thrus - 10 X 1
Body circles - 5 ea direction
Trunk Rotations - 5 ea direction.

Class training: Medicine ball cleans - rudiments

Class WOD: For time:
100 Wall Ball shots - 14#
100 Ab mat sit-ups.
Partition as desired to total target numbers.
(Did 4 rounds by 25 reps of each).
TIME: 7:18

Additional work:

Pull-ups: Mixed grip and a few kips thown in...
5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 4 + 1, 6, 6 = 52 total.
(Think this is the first time I've gotten 6 in a row. Surprised I repeated that a few minutes later)!

Clean and Jerk:
WU: 45# cleans X 10
45# C & J X 5
95# X 5
Work sets:
135# X F, F, F, F.
(Thought I could do these - - the 95# WU were easy!) Dropped to 115#....
115# X F, 1, 1
120# X 1, 1, 1
125# (ties PR) X F, 1, F, F.
(Lost my focus doing these. Did not pull hard consistently "through" my heels, hip drive was weak, and had slow arms/a slow drop. On the other hand, jerks were solid all the way).

Scott,

Don't feel bad....I think we all have those days! Actually, to my way of thinking, it seems your time was pretty fast!

I also know how you feel about training - - Today's lifts left me feeling pretty sheepish.....looks like I need to practice a whole heck of a lot more....

Steve,
I am not sure I am the one to ask. I know what works for me. I would read the journal issue on CFSB, I think it makes tons of sense. Anytime you focus just on strength you loose elsewhere. Check out the journal article http://library.crossfit.com/premium/...rengthBias.pdf (WFS). There is also an episode on CFR where Jeff Martin talks about it (episode 31), you can download the mp3 from the CF Journal website.

Terry

Row 1000 meters
Body weight Bench press, 10 reps

Body weight 203lbs- used 205lbs first 10 reps, had to drop down to 185lbs for remaining 40 reps to finish. Need to work on bench press.
My time 35:53

Calf was very sore today but much better than I thought it would be.

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

Terry,

Thanks for the info on the CFSB article. I hear you regarding gains in one area vs. losses in another. Food for thought.

Two WODs on the 23rd? You are an animal! Sorry to hear about the calf. R/Achilles still bothering me and has reduced me to no running/walking WODs right now. Am excited - - if all goes well, I'll be picking up a C2 over in Santa Cruz tomorrow. It's a Mod. C, but doesn't matter to me - - I love 'em all!

Strong work on the 070113 WOD! I'm learning most of my CF work needs concentration on upper body strength increases. My bench, pull-up, and push-up work is lacking......This may be a good place to employ to CFSB work - - happy reading to me! Take care!

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

today was JT: 21-15-9
Handstand Push Ups
Ring Dips
Push ups

19:07

Used the smith machine for assisted HSPU, otherwise as rx'd
Had to break the ring dips up. Got a lot of funny stares as I was rigging my rings on the smith. Left side lat bothersome today, but that's ok 'cause tomorrow is my deep tissue massage. Woo-Hoo!

Terry, I have battled calf strains/pulls/pain for nearly ten years now. I have found relief using a massage stick (http://thestick.com/index.cfm) and lots of calf stretching. A really good article on stretching the calf can be found at: http://sanfranciscocrossfit.blogspot...tight-bro.html

Hope this helps

Scott

OOPs typo, the second WOD was on the 24th.

Scott,
Thanks a bunch for the info. Yeah, this is not the first time. Did this a few times before, softball and street hockey. At least this time it was what I would call minor.
I think the biggest contributor was the shoes I wore for this WOD. I have been wearing VFF's http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/ (WFS) for a while and thought I would try them running. I think with no heal support caused me to over stretch the tendon and muscle. Fortunately my calf feels much better today. I am not sure if it’s CF or diet or what but my recovery these days is seem so much quicker. Thx again.
