Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
treadmill 10 minutes, leg swings, frankenstein walks, repeated Mobility WOD#35 from yesterday. Some of WOD#36. If you have trouble finding these, go to Crossfit LA. you can find the access there and pick up the feed.

Wave 1, BS: 5X 205,235,265. I've got to work on more mobility to get the depth on the BS. I use a powercage to set the bars and a small box w. plates to set the depth. I just felt tighter today. The work out of the day from the main site was a good supplement for the Wendler.

1 RFT: 10 X 15Reps of 135#DL/Push Ups. 14:57 as rx'd. Last time I did this was in 03/10 and had to scale this for 10X10 and finished in 17+. This is a nice improvement.:pepper::pepper::pepper:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Thanks [B]Terry[/B], great article!! I worked on this a little after todays wod, I can pretty much press out 95# now, after all the clean practice, thats a positive. I hear you on the soreness, I guess it's age. [B]Claw[/B] isn't that a great site? I do all that stuff - people forget to stretch around their neck and their chests for shoulders; I can ALWAYS find spots in my upper back/shoulder blades with the balls, I have the most trouble releasing my upper traps.
Saw the heat wave on the news... 113°?? Its gotten warmer here, maybe Indian summer, for a week or so it was 46-50 at night...


[B]09.27.2010-Monday[/B]
AM: 30 Burpees w/Vest

PM: warmup - row 500, pushups, squats, chest & shoulder stuff

[B]WOD:[/B]
For time:
50 hand release push-ups
40 toes to bar
30 deadlifts - 135# (85#)
20 burpee bar hops (jump & clap over the barbell)
10 thrusters - 135# (85#)
[B]11:33 w/GHD situps & 95#[/B] Opted for GHD instead of T2B because today is shoulder-y, and I wouldn't be recovered enough for Wed. (6 squat clean, 12 pullup, 24 doubleunder - 8 rounds - ugh). 95# thrusters seemed heavy, worried about Grace in 2 weeks....
Is there a way to T2B without so much shoulder torque?
Clean practice. jerk, PP prax

Oh yeah!!
I played on the rings like a fool. Skin the cat, the upside down thing, upside down pike pullups.
this cat/somersault thing seemed to be a pretty good shoulder stretch!!! :D

[B]14:38 regular wod. [/B]another horrible time; :( The runs killed me - I need to run more, been neglecting that in trying to get stronger, and I can do a 8 min/mile pace - but not for long & without getting a stitch. I would have liked to do the shedkicker but those are for, well, the shedkickers (cant modify). I can't do full ROM HSPU - OTOH, I never will if we never get to try them. Need to prax these at home. Decisions, decisions - too many things to work on to be able to fit them all in. And I still want to work up to a 280# deadlift. In the words of Scarlett O'Hara - I'll think about that tomorrow!;)

Followed by 1 Round for Time of:
500 M Row
400 M Run
100 Mountain Climbers

Press 75-95-105-110-115. Then, just for fun and because I was feeling strong, I went for my Press Elite Goal of 3/4 bodyweight = 120#. Score! PR! :kicking0:

5:14 on the 1RFT. Curse you Augie, you beat me by 10 seconds! I just can't overcome that 30 second advantage you have on me in the 500m row. OK rest of you CPC'ers, you're now chasing a couple nearly 50 year old guys. Come get us!

Deb,

you and all the others on this board are a great inspiration to me (as I don't have anyone close to my age to work out with--wah-wah! For sure the Squat challenge is going to be a eye opener! It is just what I was looking for to build strength. (one of my major goals for this year is DL-1RM PR (currently 320) and as well upper body strength.

Todays WOD was surely good for that:
WU--5 minutes Jump Rope (didn't trip myself):o
15 Air Squats
stretches--end to end!!-10 min
15 DL-115lb

WOD: 10 rounds for Time
DL-15 reps 135# (did first 4 rounds RX than dropped to 115 to insure good form)
Push-ups 15reps (lift hands at bottom)
Did first 7rnds unbroken then had to drop to sets of 5 to the "bitter end"
DANG THAT WAS MUCH HARDER THAN I EXPECTED:rofl:
[B]Time: 20min[/B]

Cool down: Stretch hammy's, 25 abmat situps-hands behind head, 10 deadhang pull-ups, (start breathing and seeing straight again!!:D

Tomorrow CF Rest day for me (plan on going on a MTB ride at least 10 miles) and running (2) miles

[B]220 reps rx[/B] (4 rounds + cleans plus 4 PU) Looking like a bad week all around; I screwed myself today, w/rip paranoia, so much tape...pullups were ones and twos. :mad: Finally ripped it off during round 3 and no problem. I'dve had a few more rounds w/o it cuz I could do 5-6 pullups fine, frustrating! No unbroken doubleunders!! Want to do this one over, b/c it was a fun one!!!

Deb,

Don't you know it, It still never seizes to amaze me how my head gets in the way of my potential (so you for sure are not alone) You, Claw and others do an amazing amount of work and 'all you all's' results are what I am chasing! I see know reason to ever change my lifestyle now (accept to up the effort)!
It is fun to see some of the young bucks try to impress us and than get humbled (amazing how humility makes for strength)

10 KB Swings, 1.5 pood(55# DB)
10 Box jumps, 24 inch box(step ups)

9/30 WOD

“Nasty Girls”
3 Rounds for Time of:
50 Air Squats
7 Muscle Ups
10 Hang Power Cleans (135#/95#)

15:54 @ 115# and 21 pull ups instead of 7 muscle ups.

Considered going a little higher on HPC weight, but 115# has been my scaling all 135# Rx'd WOD's, so I stuck with it. It was heavy enough! Started with C2B pull ups, but could only manage 5 or 6 before I started failing, so reverted to normal pull ups. I used 50 squats as my active rest, but that slowed me down a lot. I knew this was a tough WOD, but thought I would finish faster than I did. "Nasty Girls" certainly deserves its name!

[QUOTE=Pat Quigley;849638]Had a "moment" during the work out and lost count of rounds.[/QUOTE]

Must be a "Crossfit moment." I hate it when they happen; but it's a real test of character: Do I keep counting at the higher or lower number?

Also, thanks for the tip on "Younger Every Year." I got the audiobook and find it very thought provoking. I wonder if they would advocate six Crossfit workouts a week, or if some of the exercise days should be scaled back?

busy workout. either I was just not focused for some reason or I could not get down to business. I was on the floor for close to 75 minutes.

Skipped the M-WOD. Kelley S. is challenging all of us to build up to 3 continuous minutes of "hollow rocks". I'm really enjoying these M-WOD's. Most of the moves are the same as those he taught in the Movement/Mobility Certification. He's an informed and amusing speaker.

Wendler's Wave 2 (70,80,90%) DL, 3 X 295,335,380(4). The system allows more reps on the last set.

Friday 101001

Snatch, 1 rep
Clean and jerk, 1 rep
As many rounds and reps as possible in ten minutes of:
55kg Squat clean, 6 reps
12 Pull-ups
24 Double-unders(3:1 singles)

Add together the best snatch (in kg), the best clean and jerk (in kg), and the total reps performed in the triplet for your final score. Post score to comments.

Snatch: 125 lb, 56.7 kg, Cl&JK, 155lb, 70.3kg. 4 rounds. 295 points.

There was no bounce left in my legs by the time I hit the cleans. The cleans unfortunately done flat footed.

Pat Quigley 10-02-2010 02:55 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
this must be a virtual expression of meeting yourself coming and going.

Wendler Wave 2 OHP(70%,80%,90%) 3X120,135,155.

Crossfit class:

5 X 7 X of following sequence: power clean, front squat, push press, back squat or overhead squat, push press. Max weight. Task was to keep barbell moving for each repetition. Max for last set: 75#.

coach suggested that I skip the Wendler for presses today. But nooooooo!:yikes: .

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Hi folks, I't been a while since I popped in here.

Whoa Deb - great avatar photo!

Last time I was here I was planning on changing up my workout to more O-lift and strength work which I did do through to the Spring. It was not as rewarding as I had hoped for plus I hit some kind of strength loss in deadlifting which was unusual for me.

In May I took a planned break from workouts and never got back into a routine. I did get my green card taken care of and I did get a fantastic job in the area but it had/has a huge learning curve - lots of overtime and to top it off it's been really darn hot all summer!

We just bought a house too so now is a good time to get back to a regular routine. It comes with a pullup bar already installed in the garage at least and the streets are safe to go for a run! I wish we had some knowledgeable coaches/trainers here but the city is what it is. I've been stopped and asked about Crossfit, by folks looking for a local program, when I wear my T-shirt (but there is none).

So I plan on reporting in again regularly (after 4 months of nothin'). Nice to see the regulars all still here. I don't see the 2 Dianes though - I hope they are happy and fit.

My plan for this week is to just get back in the groove of dedicating time to workout - 30 minutes 5x a week doing bodyweight stuff and stretching.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
10/4 WOD

5-5-5 Front Squats
Followed by:
25/50 Pull Ups/Double Unders
20/40
15/30
10/20
5/10

135#-155#-175#
Front squats felt very strong. My previous bests were 3x165# and 1x185#, so 5x175# is definitely an improvement.

11:45
Was barely able to hit one double-under in warm-up, so I was a little concerned about my time. Took a while on the round of 40 to hit my first one, but then I was generally able to string them together in lengths of five to 20 or so. Glad we've been doing pull-ups lately, I can always use the practice! Augie and KJ screamed through this one, good job to you both!

Strong work [B]JB.[/B]

So just a Q - you guys do your own strength programming? I know a lot of you are doing 5/3/1... (Our gym suggests general stuff.)
It never dawned on me I could pay someone to make one up for me! duh - I know a PL gym right next door! I just want to get my squat up and DL to 300.

Here's my 125# jerk. Still need to learn to jump under the bar.
I like the video thing - I can see all my mistakes! only prob is sometimes I dont know how to fix them (like pullup, i see i have no pushoff at the top somtimes - no idea how to fix.)

[url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5sfqsC7gE4[/url] wfs

Im doing business cards for these peeps - anyone know anything about this? Exercising around/changing your circadian rhythm?

Awesome Helen time Terry!

10/5 WOD

15-12-9
Deadlift 275#/165#
Dumbbell Thrusters 35#/20#.
Followed by a 2min Cumulative L-Sit

8:35 @ 225# D/L, 35# dumbbell. Finished exact same time as Tyler who did WOD Rx'd. Like this one a lot! I loaded 245# on the bar at first, but realized that would be too heavy for all these reps. I tried to go low enough on thrusters and thought I did, but Baker disagreed. I just have to start using med ball as depth cue on all squat movements. :(

Didn't notice how long it took me to get two minutes of cumulative L-sits. I never had my legs fully extended, but had bent knees. My splits were something like 40 seconds, 20 seconds for a few reps, then 10 for rest of reps, then an additional 4 or 5 seconds to make up for any rounding errors.

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;851532]Strong work [B]JB.[/B]

[B]So just a Q - you guys do your own strength programming? I know a lot of you are doing 5/3/1... (Our gym suggests general stuff.)
It never dawned on me I could pay someone to make one up for me! duh - I know a PL gym right next door! I just want to get my squat up and DL to 300.[/B]

Here's my 125# jerk. Still need to learn to jump under the bar.
I like the video thing - I can see all my mistakes! only prob is sometimes I dont know how to fix them (like pullup, i see i have no pushoff at the top somtimes - no idea how to fix.)

Im doing business cards for these peeps - anyone know anything about this? Exercising around/changing your circadian rhythm?

5/3/1 is the way to go. Work hard and you'll get there with it.

Deb, there is no substitute for good coaching. If you have access to powerlifters who are willing to do some teaching, it's worth it. As for the 5-3-1, you can download Wendler's essay and construct the program once you know your max's in the basic lifts: DL, OHP, BP, BS. The alternative is Rippotoe's Starting Strength. With the latter, you will be doing the basic lifts much more often. I chose the former as I will let my body decide how frequently I take each phase of the program. I integrated the Mobility WOD to help with the wear and tear of the heavier lifting. Barring that, I am ok taking a week off when I feel I need it.

I haven't done the 5/3/1 but I hear good things about it as well, one of the guys in our gym followed it for 2 months and upped his shoulder press and jerk numbers. But he did say his lost some metcon capability, but I think its quicker and easier to get that back then strength.

Another option is MEBB I have been following it for a few weeks again and like it, I am just following Coach Rut's programming at (WFS) [url]http://www.bootcampfitnesskc.com/the-fitness-conduit/[/url]
It's a 3 day a week program, I am throwing in an extra day of sprints or a light weight metcon in every week.

Pat's right about good coaching. My coach/fellow trainer competed in the CrossFit USAW weightlifting competition last weekend, he took 7th in the 94kg class. It was nice to hear Chad Vaughn critique his form and say he must have been taught well,...he taught himself for the most part, but he has been to many clinics and seminars too on Oly lifting, plus private coaching from Gregg Everet. So now I know I have access to a world class OLY coach :)
