Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
10/15 WOD

Overhead Squats:
Followed by:
Tabata Burpees


This was so fun! I felt like I had OHS dialed in for the first time. I put a med ball under me and made sure I tapped it each and every rep. I also really focused on activating my shoulders. These were probably my best OHS's ever. I need to disregard all my old numbers, because they were not performed to proper depth.

5 burpees. On the first round, I finished the 5th burpee at :18 and stopped, and I was able to hold 5 burpees all the way through, except the last round, where I really went all-out and hit 7. Next time around I'll aim for 6 burpees, which will require 100% effort.

All in all, one of the funnest and most satisfying WOD's I've done in a while.

The "300# barrier" was bugging me since March!! It was a purely mental thing! I’m still doing the “Happy Dance”! :pepper:

The bad thing about it was I had to go to my brother-in-laws funeral, which was sad, but inside, I wanted to say,"I did a new PR in dead lifts!" every time I talked to someone. Most folks wouldn't understand.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[B]William[/B]-great work yesterday and congratulations on the DL-PR!! My condolences to the family on the loss of your Brother n law. I can relate to that 300 barrier and know just how you felt after accomplishing it!--did mine last year on November 2nd (after failing on the 31st)-- I hit 305 as well!! I am now at 315PR and got 320# to my knees and failed. Working to do a new PR on 11/1

Mobility WOD--for hip. Even if you are not doing these regularly, look at the WOD. Kelly S. does the WOD in the corner of an "In and OUt Burger". Pretty funny. I give him credit. He took on the commitment and gets it done!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

In teams of 3

Med Ball 5k run (#20/14)

Complete as many rounds as possible of
-Row 500
-20 Thrusters (#45/35)
-20 Situps
-10 Ring Dips

The workout ends when the 5k run is completed. One team member will always be running. Runners may run any distance of their choosing up to 1 mile (1600m) The remaining 2-3 team members will complete as many cycles as possible. For scoring, the average 1000m time will be added to the average round time. Lowest combined time wins.

We ended up doing about 13 rounds with a time of 34min something. I don't really track the team wods. They're just alot of fun.
