11/02 WOD

Thrusters (95#/65#)
Pull Ups

9:56 as Rx'd. PR by over 90 seconds, but God this is hard! Lots of room for improvement, particularly on the thrusters, in terms of pushing from the legs and hips and pressing less. Next stop, sub 9!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Tuesday, Nov 2

A new health center opened in our building. While it's packed with ellipticals, treadmills and cable machines there's a proper squat rack and bench. So this should be good. No more walking down the street in the Chicago Winter for a workout

Regular 40, 30, 20, 10 warmup

Shoulder Press 5-5-5
95 lbs, 105 lbs, and 115 lbs(4)

Bench Press 5-5-5-5-5
95 lbs, 95 lbs, 135 lbs, 155 lbs, and 175 lbs(3)

Will have to get a bit more familiar with it all so I can start working in some crossfit WODs

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[B]Jeff[/B], awesome news on the fitness center (sounds like with a few Locker tools you will have a good place to get some work done) great to see employers are starting to see the value in fitness in design of their buildings.

[B]Deb[/B] from watching the games and from observation of other trainers I am under the opinion that the "hand release" is done while chest is on the mat so to ensure that the FRM is accomplished on each rep, arms are locked out at top of each rep as well. Great work on the WOD!!

[B]John B.[/B] Dang:yikes: your WU's look like my W/O's!! Inspiring for sure--keep up the great work!:thanx:
Vacation-Stretching 10 Push-ups (still feeling pretty sore/weak in the shoulders) will take it easy and due abbreviated sets and reps to build strength/mobility back
Mwod-hips (5min)-roll on the pain ball lower back (found muscle soreness is moving around L/R--obvious inflammatory in the lower spine still

Up early to see election results (resulting in elevated HR) and some encouragement!
25-air squats
scare-crows-5 x 2 2.5lb
planks-5 x 30sec
Stretch-et all
Push-ups 3 x 10

I know you didn't intend it but did you realize the humor in your post. There are a lot of people who can't even DO your warmup. :rofl:

[B]"Dude, like you SQUAT 135 lbs just to warm up?"[/B] :notworth::notworth:


Not a rest day, not a WOD. Just a plain F'n busy day.

Although my 12yo son did perform in his first opera at the Lyric in Chicago.

Very cool. Worth missing a workout.
