Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Had my a** handed to me :ranting2: because I was too cocky about the "Skip DL" WOD!

[U][B]Warmup[/B][/U] - same as yesterday
*DUs were much better :)

2:00 plank


Warmed up with 85x5, 105x3, 125x2, 145x1

30 min of DL on the minute 150#

2 reps for 5 min -ok
3 reps for 5 min -ok
4 reps for 5 min -ok
5 reps for 5 min - 2 min ok, 1 min @ 145#, 1 rep @130# then DNF (did not finish)
6 reps for 5 min - DNF
7 reps for 5 min - DNF

150# was about 71 % of my PR back in January. Obviously it was too much for this WOD. I was able to do all the work in less than 30 sec and unbroken until I failed.

Total: 67 DL in 20 min.

[B]Steve[/B]...Nice DL work. Those wts are getting up there.

[QUOTE]Had my a** handed to me because I was too cocky about the "Skip DL" WOD![/QUOTE]

[B]Linda[/B]...happens. I do it all the time. Sometimes I actually learn from my experiences (but not very often). Means you are trying and working hard. Most women would swoon and faint at the work you do and the wts you pick up. I see lots of the "young things" in the base gym all the time, doing curls and tricep rows with 5 lb dumbells.
"I don't want to get bulky. I just want to tone up."
"Not to worry, your arms look like sticks and you're not really doing any work anyway," is what I wish I could say.

Strong is sooooo much better. Strong makes you confident and confident makes the fairer sex more feminine.

And now I'll get off my soap box.

Planning on doing the 150 wall ball shots this afternoon. I anticipate (though dread would be a better descriptive word) predict pain. Looked on the main site to see how quickly folks got through it. Around 10 to 15 minutes. I was very surprised. Was thinking it would take much longer. Today's main site WOD looks even more brutal. Plan on tackling that one tomorrow.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
8-19-09 Did I say Push Press? I meant Shoulder Press...sheesh.

Got the OK from the PT to start K-bell swings, lunges, and wall ball shots....alas, no burpees. So, today I biked to the gym under my new alias, The Sidewalk Kamikaze, and did this:

WU: 1040 m C2 5:00 min
applied my homemade athletic tape gymnasts grips to keep the rips down, and:
21-18-15-12-9-6 of
100ft walking lunges
situps (abmat)

Scored a blazing time of 37:16. I managed to do all of the pullups and situps as Rx'd, but I slowed waaaay down on the lunges IOT baby the knees (plus I was getting just a tad gassed.) I'm pretty happy. Stretched some, got on the step machine for about 1 min to test the still hurts to climb stairs, then I rode the Blue Bomberoo home in the boiling Georgia heat.

On a side note: The only pullup bars available at the gym are these rubber coated and funky angled things attached to some cable cross over machines. I find I can do kipping pull ups forever (well, if by forever you mean 21 reps) on these bars, but on my 1.5 inch galvanized set at home the kips are more challenging. I assume it's all about the angle.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Deb, good work with the Burpee Challenge. I'm impressed that you made up yesterday's balance today. Strong will. BTW, Burpees suck!

Steve, I'm jealous of those pullups. 19 is something to be proud of. I cannot/do not kip so usually don't do more than 10 or 12 (dead hangs with a little english) in a row.

Definitely tweeked something in the collarbone region doing push presses on Tues. The last one was ugly at 195# and I'm paying the price. Also rolled my ankle on Tuesday coming down "Big Bertha". What a mess.

Thursday squatted after a good warm up. 5x5 with 225#. Actually did 5,5,5,3 (WTF) and than finished with 8 x 135#.

Friday still feeling it in the collar bone area and after the squats in the hammies, glutes and quads, so went to the stairs at lunch. Knocked out 18.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 12:32 PM.
