Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
WTG Jeff! Nice WOD Michael!! I would like that one... is it Grace & Karen? (they're gentler with their punishment, HELEN OTOH - simply destroys me!!!) Nice strength work, JJ & Pat... and Jeff C. good on ya, lots on your plate this year!


P90x Yoga - ahhh needed that.

Off from weightlifting yesterday, coach wasn't gonna be there. (Got a link from USAW to watch the Nationals and I saw the other coach there. Saw a guy miss two snatches, then he tried from like, the second pull position?...miss! Nothing but Q's now about those lifts! I should try to learn more about this sport.:rolleyes:)
The rest was needed, shoulders are feeling pretty sore, and my one knee there's something with it. Rolled & balled everything out. My hip flexors/inner thighs get sore more than anything else with this lifting... shoulders I think Im used to them being sore. Sucks getting old, LOL!

[B][U]February 20[/U][/B]
Ran 2.75 miles to pool
Swam 1,100 yds straight through
Ran 2.75 miles home

Kept HR in 130s mostly (crept into low 140s on hills on the run home). Didn't time myself. Too crowded in the pool today and just focusing on HR today. Felt very good.

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;904539]...Struggle with these as well Im no expert but I gotta believe the light weights CF uses in wods you're probably pulling high enough. FWIW the Oly coaches are teaching me, NO its NOT about jumping or pulling the weight UP quick as you can (you DO want explosive hip extension) its about [B]PULLING UNDER[/B] the bar as quick as you can. (he tells me a$$ down! a$$down! a$$down! - I drive them nuts!)...t.[/QUOTE]

Deb - good thoughts. My problem with the cleans is that I'm TOO slow getting under the bar. I've seen Oly lifters whip themselves to the final position, while I seem to take FOREVER to get there.

Jim - great job on the triathlon training. How do you keep your heart rate so low? During a run, mine usually gets up into the 150's & stays there till I'm done.

Pat - great job on the shoulder presses. That was the only lift I improved upon in the CrossFit Total WOD. (Was one of the few lifts the Doctor would let me do for a few weeks.)

Cliff - Way to go on the Front squats!!


400m run
3 forward rolls
3 backward rolls per the Gymnastics WOD [URL=""][/URL]

I've been eating Paleo since starting CF in July, however I decided to compare my paleo to Zone blocking after not seeing significant scale/measurement changes over the past 7 months. Jeez I have been so out of whack eating half again as much protein as I need, one quarter of the carbs and a few handfuls too many nuts. So for me, for the next six weeks I'm going to be strictly weighing, measuring and blocking.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
2/21 WOD

5-5-5-5-5 High Bar Bar Squats
All pretty easy until I got to 205. Not sure I could have put up 5x215.

AMRAP 12 Min:
8 Medball Burpees
25 M Walking Lunges with the medicine ball anywhere above the waist.
7 rounds.

We started with abs-focused warmup, then 3 x 10 GHD sit-ups. Based on the rhabdo post today, sounds like our trainers are getting paranoid! Good, keep us safe and healthy. :) Only Augie and I with Traver, lots of entertaining stories in between sets. Went head-to-head with Augie the whole way, BS and AMRAP too. This was fun.
