Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. It was pretty typical around here, kids had fun. Some assembly required.

Thursday I went to the Globo for our box's Christmas eve workout.

12 Days of Christmas CFTC Style:

1 Burpee
2 Handstand Pushups
3 Deadlifts 225#
4 Box Jumps 24#
5 Thrusters 95#
6 KB Swings 55#
7 Pushups
8 Pullups
9 Clean and Jerks 95/65
10 Walking Lunges
11 Wall-balls 20/14
12 Power Snatches 95/65

I only got thru 11 rounds before they were closing the gym and subbed dips for the wall balls. While I was on the rack doing pullups a kid home from break (looked to be either a college athlete or ROTC) recognized the kips in my pullups and asked "Crossfit?". He was with some buddies and we were sharing the pullup bar. I replied yes and showed him the slip of paper with the WOD listed. He egged his buddies on, who were struggling with the PUs, to do the WOD. No takers. I went on with my workout. As they were walking away I overheard him say to his buddies, "That's Badass".

[I]Fun one!! This was a shocker, the weight part was no problem. Probs w/my right shoulder or rib muscle, need to get a ball to roll around on. Shoulder was complaining some during the k2es and then my pullups sucked today, I think maybe it's because I'm AFRAID of hurting my shoulder more. Funny thing is during/after rest of the WOD, both my shoulders feel better! First time doing pistols. Handstand pushups were awful at the end - my back was just saying, oh no you're not!!! Im sure it was really ugly and I was the last one done!:rolleyes: Oh well, I'll get it next time! [/I]

CF doesn't like stairmasters much, but if you keep a vertical body position (no leaning!) and your heels down, it is effective. Let go of the handles or put on a vest and it really gets your attention. Love to run, but I have broken several bones over the years and arthritis really cuts down on my running capacity.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

15 mins xbike -3.5 miles
ROM exercises

Big week this week. If all goes well, might be able to start some limited upper body work. Got the new rings hung by the chimney with care !

Have transitioned to one crutch around the house, (stlll use two outside because of the snow and ice), should be down to a cane by the end of the week.
