Good advice William, (I am definitely going to be scaling weight) for awhile as the wrist is still pretty tender.

Managed Thursday to do the "400m" Walking lunge WOD--17:30 (my Quads are still screaming today!!!

Highlight of the week was bringing my next door neighbor to the Box on Friday and he is going to start coming with 3 days a week!---5minutes of Cindy did it's magic!

Congrats John on signing up for the run! great cross training and you will amaze yourself and others of what you can do with CF as your base!

Have a Blessed Weekend everyone!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Haven't worked out since Saturday - Springtime cleaning, my fave --- NOT!

On top of that, throughout the day yesterday, my biceps became increasingly sore from the kettlebell swings. That's my only guess as I can't remember what else I did to make them hurt so much. As of yesterday afternoon, I could not straighten my arms. I looked as if I was always ready to start dancing "the Robot". Ouch...getting better and will be back at the box tomorrow.

I don't know if I'm hitting the exercises too hard or whether it's beginner's enthusiasm, but for two weeks now, one muscle group or another has been hurting. However, I've not been so happy in such a long time.

Many of you have probably seen this video, however I think it's worth watching again if you have, and if not...what a treat. Great athlete!

You'll make 90. Keep working at it. The game WODs are no joke..When you start to get tired, just stop for a sec, regroup, think form and technique, and don't listen to those little naysayers in your head. Great job!

great weekend.

friday shoulder workout w/sled and then zerker squats 1-1-1

265-280-290 (pr by 5 lbs)

then friday nite watched the canucks beat the black hawks

saturday total rest day

sunday was out for an 1 1/2 hike with wife and dogs to a park we had never been to before. after the first 1/3 came out of the woods to a soccer pitch that doubled as a dog park. did 3x40 yd sprints with my wife on my back. the dogs were looking at us funny.

kept going on hike and got onto an under developed bit of trail with lots of mud. just for fun i told my wife i would carry her through all the muddy spots if she wanted to keep going. great idea....if only i knew how many muddy spots there were.

i think in addition to the 3 40's i did i ended up carrying my wife close to 500 yds yesterday.

good thing she is in shape and only about 140 pounds otherwise i would be really hurting rather than just hurting today.

Wilfredo it's been almost 9 months since I started CF and without fail one body part or another has some type of soreness every single day. I love it... :D

Nice job by all. Rest weekend for me, I feel great today. Did some tabata work this morning on my own, no one showed up at the box for our 5:30 am class so I went back home and did a globo gym workout instead. Must say I missed my adrenaline pump this morning.

I was the last one done, But I got 'em!!

55#-55#-55#-55#-60#-65#-70#x...moved down to a trainer bar + 20# (31#total) to work on speed and technique which are both grossly flawed. I did close to a dozen really working on speed and drop and felt much better afterwards.

I wish so much that we had an OLY lifting class close by.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
i would have hoped i would have learned something in the 49 plus years i have been around but nope.

got to the box to nite. wod was 5000m row. jumped on the erg pulled for a 250 m. and realized my shoulder would be really angry at me if i did the 5000m row. i asked my coach what he had in mind for me since i was out for the row.

he just smiled and said 2000m sled pull with 90 lbs go check what your last time was.

48:19 i say.

he then proceeds to say j.f. (who is late 20's early 30's, an alpine mountain guide and about 6 inches taller and 20 lbs lighter than me) did it last week in under 25 minutes you should be able to break 30:00 minutes.

no way i say but i will try my best.

Trial run at 11.5

Toes to bar will be the gaiting factor for me. Any helpful suggestions are welcomed. :D

I managed the first round at 100# on the cleans, then dropped to 85#, struggled through the 10 attempts at t2b ended up more like k2e, then breezed through the 14# wall balls which shows tremendous progress with my strength.

We'll see what happens.

Modified because I'm supposed to snatch tomorrow. Pushpress easy, all legit like Nick taught me, swings easy, but pullups at 162lbs - what a difference, just terrible!!! Had to break them, got down to singles. Popeye arms after, WOD reminded me of Horrible Helen, but pushpress makes it sooooo much better. Pushpress always makes my shoulders feel better somehow.
My friend told me take a contrast shower you'll be fine to snatch! Geez, they suck. WOD felt darn good though...

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Today we did pullups, weighted for those who have dead hang. Person assisted for those of us who don't have dead hang. This morning is the closest I've come to strict unassisted dead hang. I'm sure in another week I'll have them and be over joyed.

Deb you great on pull ups even if you did have to break them up!

Oh yeah. My coach said I'm just weak! AND, got in trouble for CFing, not supposed to do KB swings. He said they'll mess up my oly, NO SWINGS.

Wilfredo Flores 04-22-2011 03:19 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Question:

I'm a little confused as to what I should do, my doc is telling me to take some time off: sprained ankle still a little sore, can't straighten my arms and my right shoulder is bothering me.

When I was younger, and dancing/teaching/rehearsing/performing, and taking daily class, I would get injured and keep going. That was well into my 40s, I feel I could do that now, modified of course. Doc feels, I'm not thinking this through. My thought is to go back to the gym ASAP, and let my body work itself out. Guys? Ladies?

Deb Weber 04-22-2011 04:28 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
[B]Wilfredo[/B] that depends. Can sense your disappointment, since an upper and lower body injury rules out so much.

When Im sore, a good pull on the rower, get some blood flow going usually helps flush that away, and a WOD is ok. I would try an epsom salt bath for general aches & pains, seems to work.

But, if it were me, I'd be cautious with the sprained ankle no point making it worse. Shoulder bothering you how? Bursitis, joint pain, muscle pain, limited ROM or what?

Pat Quigley 04-22-2011 05:02 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
I don't press thru injuries anymore. I do exercise the parts that are not injured though. Yesterday is pulled something around the posterior delt doing weighted dips. I used much of the stuff from the Movement cert. to repair this AM. It's better but not gone. Since today was Deadlift day, I did have to worry about the shoulder. I even warmed up on the rower to check.

Strength: Deadlift: 5X 315, 355, 405.
Sissy Squat machine: 10X315, 400, 500.

I'm staying away from anything I have to use my foot for, which means just about everything, however have done some rowing and that has helped keep me, at least, feeling as if I'm not falling too far back.

The shoulder is an old rotater injury from way back, I hurt it at the gym, but didn't do much about it, and as you may know, one uses their shoulder a lot. So it's never really healed properly. I am more careful now, and warm up as much as I could. Did a few push ups and very light kettlebells to test..it was okay. But at this point willing to wait, until I feel my body is getting together again.

I just feel like I'm biting at the bit, rearing to go, and just as I get going, I get injured. Lesson learned: be smarter about it!

Happy Easter.

At the Shed, the wod was 45/30/15 FS-DU so I weight trained, cuz my FS sucks. Maybe DU and deadhangs later.

Patience, I tried I really did. [B][SIZE="3"]I snatched 95# today!!![COLOR="Red"] PR[/COLOR][/B][/SIZE]
Finally! I would've done more, but I didn't want to get greedy, Nick said it doesn't count unless he sees it, and all the small plates were in use, would have had to go to 50+kg. Sensei Matt of Oak Ridge Dojo fame saw it, however!! :D

Thanks Pat...working on being patient and smart about this, and not letting my ego get the best of me. I think that's already happened, that's why I'm on the sidelines so soon. However no sense if whining about it...hitting it this week again...but smarter.
