Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff - Glad to hear your back issue has resolved. Those are never any fun.

11/25 Crystal Trail
Initial climb - 1.75 miles, 1475' climb, 1:08
Hike stats - 4.8 miles, 1843' of climbing, 2:45

I found a couple of good snatch training articles by Bill Starr on the CrossFit Journal last night. Some great coaching in there that should help me get the lift sorted out.

1.5 yrs, still struggling. still weak. The guy who babysits me said 5 yrs to be consistent. 10 yrs to get decent. I figure something to do into my old age. Maybe ill start a club. My last triple today: [url][/url] wfs

Yes the days are still getting shorter...

Pushups, situps, air squats, (lots of each)

10 minutes to find 3RM of push press (200#, ran out of time)

5 rounds of:
6 heavy deadlifts (315 for first two rounds, then backed off to 225)
10 pushups on the deadlift bar.
7 lateral box steps ups


Friday is going to be a Ctown CrossFit Total day, this ought to be interesting. Am thinking that Thursday (and wednesday) should be active rest days where I work on mobility.

11/25 workout @ Bacara

Backsquat (Smith machine)

Definitely relied on lateral stability provided by Smith machine to push weights up, but also went to below parallel cue. Pleased with this weight.

Front squats (50# dumbbells)
Push ups
Double unders

Front squats absolutely crushed me. First set 21, all later sets 5's and 4's. Holding dumbbells in rack position gassed my shoulders for pushups.

Fasting today, but I don't think that made a difference.

11/27 WOD
3 Rounds For Time
400 M Run
21 Kettlebell Swings (1.5pd/1pd)
12 Pullups

About 40 seconds off my PR. All kettlebell swings went straight through, first set of pull ups straight through, then 6 and 4's and 3's. Wasn't sure how hard to push it on the run, so went about 80%. Now that I have the kettlebell swings straight through, the run is where all the time is gained or lost. Big class this morning, so Christina ran us in two heats. As always, I was glad to be in the first heat, but a little more time warming up might have been good for me too.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Nice work folks!! Ended up taking a rest through the Thanksgiving Holiday. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

600m run
2 rounds:
10 Pull Ups
10 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
10 Jump Squats


Set 1) Every 30 seconds for 2:00 (5 total reps) – 1 rep @ 70% (200#)
*Rest 2:00
Set 2) Every 45 seconds for 2:15 (4 total reps) – 1 rep @ 75% (215#)
*Rest 3:00
Set 3) Every 60 seconds for 2:00 (3 total reps) – 1 rep @ 80% (230#)

Each set should be performed without re-racking the bar. Once you have walked out of the rack with the barbell, do not put it down until the set is finished. Percentage should be based off of your most recent 1RM Squat.


3 rounds for time of:

50 KB Hi-Pulls 24/16kg
50 Double-Unders

Subbed 2x Single-Unders


[I]The worst part was holding the bar on your back! Had to rack it between rep 3 & 4 of set 2 and rep 2 & 3 of set 3. The KB Hi-pulls were brutal. Had to break them into sets of 10, which QUICKLY went to sets of 5!

Thought I was the last one, but ended up one of the 1st ones in the class finishing! More DU Practice!![/I]
