Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Jeff,

I think I'm gonna pass on that challenge. I want to focus the next couple of months on a couple of weak areas for me— pullups and a lot of the overhead Oly stuff.

I found some nice pullup focused strength programs this AM elsewhere on the site which I plan to work in once a week and see where I get in terms of how many clean full hang pullups I can do. Right now, I can do 2. Losing another 13 pounds (my goal this year) will no doubt help!

I am pretty strong at stationary press, but not at push press or push jerks, and I want to go up 35-40 pounds in OHS this year. So I plan to do a lot of Sotts Press at home, and push press/push jerk work at Rogue.

Then this spring I am going to start working in some 10K runs as WODs once a week for fat loss.

I really like the CFSB type programs you post. When I'm not going in to the box, I do a lot of similar stuff to what you're doing here at home. So please keep posting them. Wouldn't mind doing a challenge like the one you describe maybe later this year as I get closer to trying to reach my "big" 2010 goal: dead lifting 2x my weight!

Thanks, John and Jeff. I see I have some massive catching up to do with you all.

Today
AMRAP 15 minutes
10 Hang Power Cleans (65 lbs.)
10 Push Ups

10 rounds, 5 HPC's

Very light pullup and ring dip work.

Jim Cordes 01-13-2010 12:54 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
1/13 WOD.

Tabata sit-ups, then
3-3-3-3-3 Deadlifts, then
50 DU's, 10 K2E, 50DU's, 10 clapping pushups.

12 Tabata sit-ups (all rounds were 12 except last which was 13)
225-245-265-285 (2 only)-275
3:42.

Everything felt great except double-unders: when I get tired I miss a lot. My PR on deadlift is 1x 285# on Crossfit Total day; I tried 285# a month or so later and failed, so it was great to get two reps in today. The two reps were pretty bad form, but when I went back down to 275# I did three with good form. K2E's were slow but legit, with no swinging. Clapping pushups are just fun.

01/13/10 workout at CrossFit Confluence

After the long lay-off from CrossFit, I was incredibly sore yesterday and took the day off. Unfortunately, I was just as sore today and had to do “Fight Gone Bad”. I was mentally and physically unprepared and I totally stunk. But that leaves a lot of room for improvement next time, eh?

My order was rowing, wall ball, SDLHP, box jump, push press.

I rowed OK (beat a young guy all 3 rounds of rowing), could barely do wall balls after rowing, was spaced out on SDLHPs (wrong stance, wrong grip – and nobody corrected me), too paranoid to jump so I did step-ups on the box, and then thought I should be doing shoulder presses instead of push presses. All in all, a complete disaster. Debating whether to actually post my numbers and be an object of ridicule. Maybe tomorrow after I lick my wounds. Geez.

1/13/10: REST

But, rewarded a good business month with some purchases at Rogue: a pair of 25 lb. bumpers (now have 230 lbs. bumpers and 275 lbs. iron), 26 lb. and 35 lb. k-bells (now have sets of both), and some Rogue wood rings!

I had been doing ring dips and ring pushups at home with some Monkey Bar Gym straps/handles where the metal adjustment bracket was KILLING the outside of my arms (bruises after very WOD using them). Sold those on eBay to a local guy.

Only thing really missing from my home gym now is a C2, but I think that will happen next winter, Lord (and business) willing.

My 7 year old was down in the gym helping me organize tonight— and did a clean pushup also learned how to sumo DL a 26 lb. k-bell. Great stuff.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
MRI showed no tear, just tendonitis and a fluid sac. Foot is still hurting but I am able to workout just can't do any running. Took it easy today, rode bike for about 20 min. and did some heavy dead lifts.

10 x 45
5 x 135
5 x 225
3 x 315
1 x 365
1 x 385
1 x 405

Felt like I probably could have made 425 to 450 if my foot had not been hurt.
Went home and iced it, doesn't feel to bad.

1/14 WOD.

4 Rounds for Time:
5 Left arm KB Thrusters (1 pood)
30 Second Handstand
5 Right arm KB Thrusters (1 pood)
30 Second Handstand
15 KB Swings (1.5 pood)

13:42.

Crap was this a shoulder burner! Rx'd at 1.5 pood the whole thing, but the shoulders were fried with one-arm thrusters and handstand holds, so went to 1 pood for one-arm movements on 2nd round to end. Handstand holds, which require some finesse, were a disaster with all the fatigue in my shoulders. (Barbell complex plus handstand practice plus extra power clean work as warmup didn't help the wasted shoulder issue, either.) I'll need help washing my hair tomorrow because I won't be able to raise my arms that high. :shrug:

just got back from Florida. Still some groin issues. After a long slow warm up that included squats , OH squats with weighted bar, hip raises and sit ups on GHD, pull ups, push ups, dips, small sets of Turkish getups w. 15 lbs.

completed Fran: 1 RFT 21-15-9 reps of 95# thrusters and pull ups. After first set of thrusters, lowered wt to 65#. I was not getting low enough (actually tried to touch top of 2' table on ea. rep.). Completed w. good form. Time was 6:49.

[B]John[/B] - CrossFit Confluence is on the North Side (a few blocks from the confluence of the Allegheny and the Monongahela rivers!). It is the CrossFit location that I have been yearning for! The other Pittsburgh CrossFit locations are in outlying suburban areas, but this is close to downtown and 10 minutes from where I live in Crafton (the near-west suburbs). It is a brand new affiliate that is coached by one of the most talented trainers in the city (Patrick Benton). Patrick and I have worked together for a long time and he introduced me to the CrossFit concept. I've been drinking the CF kool-aid ever since, even though I've had to work out in a lot of locations that were not CrossFit conducive (various globos and body-builder gyms).

I've had 6 weeks off from all workouts so I'm not in peak shape right now. But wait until early-to-mid-Spring and I'll be kicking the butts of the youngsters once again thanks to Patrick and CrossFit Confluence! (Note: I have no financial affiliation to CF Confluence - just a long, loyal affiliation to "Coach P")

[B]Diane[/B], It's great to have you back and posting again.

[B]Deb[/B], It's just something about your affiliates programming that I like. Here's my FGB numbers (my first, BTW). Humiliate away.

WU: Pushups, situps, pullups, dips

WOD; Fight Gone Bad ...where each event is 1 minute of effort with a 1 minute break between rounds. Having never done this before I assume you just add up all the numbers. Heck, what's a good benchmark?
RD1 RD2 RD3
20 23 25 #55 Push Press
18 16 14 20in Box Jump
12 13 11 #55 SDLHP
12 14 15 #20 Wallball
7 7 8 C2 Row Calories
69 73 73 Total = 215

This really sucked; The box jump and SDLHP especially. I might have been able to put up some better numbers but I was self timing and had to stop after each effort to write my numbers down. Oh, to have a training partner.

John,

There was a National FGB WOD and competition this summer. I completed 240 reps. Beyondthewhiteboard has the rankings and distribution here,

[url]http://www.beyondthewhiteboard.com/workouts/13-fight-gone-bad[/url] (wfs)

The site has yet to develop an age based distribution. I'm sure if you search the bbs here you'd find a lot of posts.

The whole thing was very cool and a lot of fun. We had 4 or 5 affiliates in the Chicago area at our box. It was like a mini Games.

This was the fourth national (Global?) FGB to benefit Wounded Warrior Foundation. I'm sure they'll do it again this summer. Here's the site,

Noon workout at CrossFit Confluence

WU:
500m row; 3 rounds - shoulder pass-throughs, Sampson stretch, PVC OHS, push-ups, back extensions, sit-ups

WOD: "AlterNate" - Choose either "Nate" or "Helen"

I chose Helen: 3 rounds - 400m run; 21 KB swings; 12 pullups
Subbed 500m row for run and pull-ups were jumping
4:32/ 5:25/ 4:42 = 14:39

My legs were tired and uncooperative causing my row to come unglued in round 2. I pulled it back together for round 3, but needed that third lung for the whole thing. Happy when it was over.

Graduating from jumping pull-ups to band-assist next week.

Warm up on 30" stationary recumbant cycle (said I was "working" from home:rofl:).

1/16/10 Home Page WOD

With a continuously running clock, squat for 60 seconds. Subtract the number of squats completed from 60, and do that many pull-ups in minute two. In minute three, squat again, subtracting the number completed from 60. Do that number of push-ups in minute four. Minute five is squatting again, and minute six pull-ups.

The pattern is squats, pull-ups, squats, push-ups, squats, pull-ups, etc. The goal is to stay within the workout's formula for as long as possible.

Don't do more than 60 squats in any round.

In any case, stay moving for at least 12 minutes.

So as not to crush everyone, Mark decided to scale it at 65% your ME clean. My last Power Clean was 185, so I worked out with 120#

Five rounds for time of:
Deadlift, 12 reps
Hang power clean, 9 reps
Push jerk, 6 reps

I asked about the order and one of coaches responded that there is some strategy involved "Do 6 DL's...." Anyway, I misinterpreted that to mean I could do 6DL, 3 HPC, then 6 sets of 1 DL, 1 HPC, 1 PJ. Nope. :shrug:

Surprised nobody noticed it. My time ended up being 10:07. So to be on the same with everyone else I'm going to redo it either Monday or next week in the right sequence. The challenge is scored by best time and most improved.

It will be interesting to see my time in the correct order.

Rest day for me. Loving the workouts at the new affiliate, but a rest day was much needed.

Terry, great work on the SDLHP. Just incredible. If I hadn't been thru such a long stint of physical therapy and even now working thru some issues, I'd be chasing the heavy weights. However, I'm really tired of carrying one limit or another. So for the next few months, my focus will be to just do each workout with as full a range of motion as possible and pay less attention to the numbers.

Today's workout was 12 minutes of work: count # squats for 1 minute and subtract that total from 60. During next minute do that #pull ups. Repeat squats and do subtraction for #push up. Do for 6 X 1 minute squats, altering pull ups and push ups.

Did this one from home, warm up on recumbant cycle for 30 minutes. Attached rings to outside balconey for pull ups.

Stats were for each round were: (1) 52-8, (2) 50-10, (3) 55-5, (4) 50-10, (5) 50-10, (6) 45-15.

302 squats, 28 Pull Ups, 35 Push ups. Squats were just above parallel.

Pat, I like that idea. If you slack off on the first one, you have to do more of the second. I'm out of town a decent amount, that would be a good Travel WOD.

Today, Quasi Rest Day

30min Mindless Cardio on the elliptical in the basement
100 squats, 50 situps, 25 pushups.
