Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff - Awesome Rowing PR!!

400m Run
100+ SUs
10 Leg Swings, each leg, both directions
10 Air Squats
30 sec fingertip plank
10 push Ups
10 Bar Taps
5, 4, 3, 2, 2 Pull Ups
10 GHD sit ups
10 Hollow rocks
10 45# Presses
10 45# OHS
Berguner Warm Up

Establish 1 RM Snatch

5 Snatch (#135\95)
15 Kb Swing 1.5\1 pood
20 Toes to Bar

Only got 95#, though I got a 115# on top of my head. My shoulder was talking to me.

On the Metcon, I scaled to 95# power snatches.


[I]I took my time on this one, trying to just keep moving. I did the snatches basically one at a time. I was able to do the KBSs straight through for the 1st two rounds. I broke the TTBs into subsets of 3 to 5 reps. I ended up with the 2nd fastest time on the board. :D[/I]

Rest Day (rest is training)

Snatch Practice
1x155 (miss)
1x155 (hit), have been struggling a little with the snatch in the past few weeks, am maxing out around 155 instead of 175.

strict press, 10x45#
50 single unders
strict press, 5x75#
50 single unders
strict press, 5x105#

strict press, 1x115, 1x120, 1x125, 1x130, 1x135, 1x140

Friday 10/24/14

With a continuously running clock complete 5 power clean and press every minute.

From 0:00-5:00 use 75 lb.
From 5:00-10:00 use 95 lb.

Got through the first 10 minutes easily. 115 lbs just didn't feel doable for sets of five. Did five singles with good form.

Subbed clean and press for thrusters. My knees just don't go there anymore.

Cliff, congrats on the pr. That's moving.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Bill, nice job subbing out the thrusters, wisdom trumps Rx.

3x10, 2x15

4x95# (failed on #5)

PM Session
A nice walk around part of the farm carrying a five pound plate in one hand. I'm very happy I went with the 5 pound plate instead of the 10# kettlebell...

Compare to the last time I was in walking shape: (in peru)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Bill, I know no-one has ever said this before, but burpees suck....

Monday October 27, 2014

Worked with my coach to find appropriate opening weights for the American Championships coming up on Saturday November 1st.

Hit 78kg in the snatch, and just missed at 80 and 81kg, so I am going to open at 70-72 depending on how 65 feels in the warmup. Hit 105 in the c&j and missed badly at 110 (PR is 113). Will start at 100-102 depending on how 90 feels in the warmup.

I feel a LOT better about the upcoming comp now that I've hit some decent numbers in a simulated comp like today. The key will be to do the best I can and not worry too much about what anyone else is doing while still being aware of what they are doing in case I need to up a lift by 1kg to win...
