Getting close to finishing the physical therapy and training with the assistant. This has lengthened the warm up. Took the 0912177 work out of Squat Cleans:1-1-1-1-1-1-1. Changed this to attempt lifts that would meet good form. The goal today was to make sure that I got under the weight to at least parallel position. And not to attempt a weight that would challenge this.


Completed Squat cleans: 55-65-95-115-135.

Finished up with Hang power cleans: 135-145-155-165-175.


Next time I do this, I will have to start working on getting the elbows up without changing the allignment of the movement. Today went well.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Good morning, y'all-

I just found this thread. New to the board, been CF-ing since early October following the mainsite wod and using scaling from BrandX.

I have some age related issues- I am old, weak, and slow for starters. I can change the weak and slow part, so I am working on that.

I have been outfitting my home office as a garage gym. It used to be a garage but now it has tile floor, 1/2 bath, nice drywall, and a kitchen area. I work in it as a psychologist and now I work out in it, too. I slide some furniture around and I can do squats etc.

And I am joining one of my local affiliates for the coaching- after visiting orthopedic surgeons a few times, I want to have someone else look at my form and technique so I don't end up hurting myself due to pride or ignorance.

So-- just a note of introduction.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Welcome aboard Cliff. Also a practicing psychologist. My story is not too different from yours. On the back end of some physical therapy and training with the PT assistant to attain better allignment. I'm a little over one year into this program.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
John-
I am not on FB. Just have not wanted to put the time in to keep up with something like that. Hardly fittin' this in sometimes.

I wonder about Stephen L. too? I know Terry D. has just gotten too busy.

Nice to meet you [B]Cliff![/B]
[B]JSR[/B] - thanks for the info!
[B]JJ[/B] - yes - so much pharma around here. Years ago I did a lot of ciba, sandoz, parke-davis, warner lambert, Schering, Genentech, Pfizer, et al. Not so much of it anymore and all through other parties.


Rest 12/17 & 12/18 (holidays are interfering w/my wods!!)

Welcome [B]Cliff[/B]

12/19/09

How's everybody doing ?

Exercise bike finally got here today !

WOD
10 minutes- Xbike 2.3 miles
71 rpm, lowest setting to work on ROM.

It ain't much bit what a mental boost ! At least I feel like I'm back in the game, if only just a little bit.

I ordered some rings from Muscledriver and they are already on the way. I should be cleared for some strict upper body work in about 10 days.

Gotta appreciate the small blessings ! (Like being able to put your sock on without the use of a special "tool"-next goal!)

Welcome Cliff

John - I bet it's great to be on the bike

I can see you looking outside thinking about today's WOD

AMPAP - SNOW - move As Many Pounds AS Possible in one and a half hours.

I have no idea how much I did but it was great

Hi everybody! 47 is getting close enough to 50. I work out at Crossfit Pacific Coast ([url]www.crossfitpacificcoast.com[/url]) in Santa Barbara, California. I post my workouts on their forum, but will add interesting stuff here.

I'm aiming for 48 consecutive pull-ups on 6/7/2010, which will be my 48th birthday.

John Warkala 12-20-2009 11:46 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
12/20/09

WOD 15 mins xbike -3.3 miles
ROM (Range of motion) drills for hip and leg.

Looks like a rest day tomorrow. The biggest danger for compromising my recovery is trying to do too much, too fast.

[B]Jay[/B]- For the first time since I moved into my house (17 years ago), I didn't have to move any snow. Kinda sucks because I have a nice Toro snow thrower and I like to play with it. I usually take care of a couple of elderly neighbors and another neighbor with a heart condition, too. I hope they made out alright.
We got about 2' in Bellmore, how'd you do down in Oceanside ?

We had about a foot and a half although the front of my house can get drifts and they get over three feet. I should have come over to borrow the blower.

When will you be able to go back to work?

12/21 WOD.

5 Rounds For Time w/ (75#/45#)
5 Presses
10 Push Presses
15 Push Jerks

13:40 @ 65#. First round only took 1:00, but don't let that first round fool you. By the end, I was only able to do 1 press, 5 push presses, and 7 or 8 push jerks at a time.

Started with one round Tabata squats: 17 squats. This improved my prior effort of 13.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
modified the mainsite 091221 workout: Diane. Working on HSPU in alt positions in P/T. So the workout called for 21,15, 9 resps of 225# DL and HSPU's. I subbed 135# OH presses. Completed in 9:42.

Found out that the same flexibility problem I have with OH Squats applies to HSPU's. My current HSPU's are like an incline press at a steeper ankle than would be done on a bench. This can work upside down. However, right side up with a barbell overhead, the bar falls. The PT is giving me lots of exercises to create more flex.----so work.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Been bad about keeping up. I am supposed to be getting ready to retire and these young guys keep heaping work on me.

Any way..
Sunday - 1 hr hike in the snow covered hills of Iowa. Pretty exhausting.
Monday - 30 min of snow shoeing. Wanted to do more but the sun went down and it was getting dark.
Today - at the base field house gym - walk 0.8 mile; 3000m row; 0.8 mile walk with push-ups on every lap; 2000m row; 0.8 mile walk with more push ups.

Abs are a bit sore. I'll have to see how they are tomorrow.

We are supposed to get freezing rain tomorrow followed by a lot of snow. May have to break out the cross country skis.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
I've been a slacker, taken two days off in a row. But I had to congratulate Diane on the DUs. I've been practicing. I'm really beginning to take a liking to those. Might get me one of those fancy speed ropes.

Deb, Don't worry about not being "fast" on the box jumps. It's the height that counts!

Diane Mahoney 12-23-2009 11:48 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Thanks Jeff! Suddenly I'm looking forward to double-unders! We are supposed to do 100 of them for time soon. I know it will take me a LONG time, but I'm eager to try!

Box jumps is another thing I need to work on. I wish they had short boxes at the gym because I am really afraid of the tall ones. :rolleyes:

Charles Pyke 12-23-2009 12:18 PM

Jeff,

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Jeff, good find.

I pulled a groin/ab muscle/tie-in whatever. It feels better for not exercising. got some trx for this from the PT. Re-discovering the benefits of DSMO.

The DL and front squat workouts on the main site look really interesting:
1-10-1-20-1-30.

Oh well they will be there when this thing heals. Meanwhile, I got the day off to finish up Christmas preps. I am hosting for the family. Cooking as well. Plan to do most of this today so I can hang out more than I did on Thanksgiving. Too bad the grandsons are not coming---I'd have an excuse to order a bouncey again.

To all my CF buddies, have a great holiday--whatever you celebrate.:highfive:

I hope that all of you are enjoying this beautiful holiday. Feeling a little restless with the box closed. The Ovation channel on cable is doing the Battle of the Nutcrackers. Saw the Royal Ballet of London earlier. Now the Bolsoi is performing---they are so incredibly athletic---almost like the Cirque.

So if you cannot get to it, let your "mirror neurons" do the work.;)

5 Burpees
10 Situps
10 KB swings.

Kept up a good pace- I finished 7 rounds, the wife finished 6.
