Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Nice PR and total, [B]Bill.[/B] WTG on the weight, [B]Cliff.[/B] Oh yeah, I dont think Ill make weight, probably lift as a super.:rofl:


Screwed up workout from the getgo, supposed to be recovery - everything changed! Gym so crowded, told me work up to openers (I dont know what they are). So I didn't have a workout plan it was fly by night. And not on my usual platform, PMS week, snatch boo boo hurting - excuses excuses!! Have to get out of my own head.

35kg/2 here he said, why psnatch - snatch!

38kg (3) lost the second one in the catch it was forward a tiny bit
40kg(2) all nice, easy, and all leg pulls up to here
43kg miss (didnt bring the bar in; of course with the fateful 43 on the bar they were all talking about someone dropping weight on their head!! Aaarghh!! I was not leg pulling)
38kg (3) miss fell on my a$$, bar WAY out.
I want to get 43 or 45 at that meet, will just have to see, fairly certain 40 will be doable. I think Im stronger than I think anymore. All mental. Justin is not going to the meet! Disappointing, trained directly across from him for months now :(

[B]Split Jerk from Rack[/B]
50kg (3)
none too bad, still doing the 1-2 THREE and trying to get my hips back. Soft on the 50s but not as bad as Saturday.

[B]Front squat[/B]
43kg/3 (2)
45kg/2 (4)
I met Gwen Sisto tonite![/B] i was on this platform right in front of the door and I see this woman looks so familiar coming in the door. It was her!! I got to meet her b/c she was going to work in with me - but then a platform freed up. The first thing I said to her was, nice shoes!! (she was wearing pink Ristos!!) But I got to watch her snatch - speed!!! Her and Danica, they're smaller than me but strong and so fast - Danica's still Big D - that woman is bomb!!!

The snatch issue - its all in my head!! I remember learning to skate, to turn around the coach made us skate up to a cone, pivot around facing it the whole time and skate backward - told us "say hello to the cone". Its kinda like that with my snatch - so EASY when I do it right, its like 'say goodbye to the bar!' It just goes UP! Im not consistent tho, easy to fall back into bad habits. I always doubt people learning snatches now when they DON'T ever write 'fell on my a$$'!! :)

Front squat no big at that weight; Nick asked, can you front squat 45?? Hello, I had to do 50 or 55 a while back, very difficult. Now it doesn't seem bad at all, I have no idea what so drastically changed; that bounce thing - its becoming like a reflex I look for to get up.

I got to see Nick snatch - still got it!! haha

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I interpreted this to mean as many reps as possible in a single set (i.e. can’t take your hands off the bar and rest for 5 seconds).
Bench @ 185 (I’m 181 lbs).* 15/15; 12/20; 10/18; 10/15; 8/15.

Bill, nice DLs and total. You seem to be really improving! Cliff, good work on the squats! Heavy work brother! Perry, awesome job on Lynne! Deb, good luck with your meet!

[B][U]Monday, Sept. 19[/U][/B]
Took the day off.

[B][U]Tuesday Sept. 20[/U][/B]
Ran 2.6 hilly miles. My quads still felt a bit numb and unresponsive, but I felt fast, if that makes any sense at all.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Ran 2 miles (hills) with weight vest. I have to weigh the vest to find out how much extra I had on. Mile 1) 14:45 2)13:40

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Way to go on the DL Bill! I'm trying to increase my DL but really feel it in my hips and back. I'm doing something wrong.

4 alternating rounds of 10 reps: dead lifts and squats @ 215lbs.

Was getting dizzy on the squats. Last set, I had to break it up into 4 reps, rest, 3 reps, rest, 3 reps.

WOD: Jerks: 1-1-1-1-1-1-1

95, 135, 145, 155, 165, (170 fail),165, (170 fail), 165.

Weird. 165 felt fairly easy but couldn't do 170.

Maybe DLs, squats and jerks aren't a great combination. Still, was a good day of work.
