Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
First day with the walking cast off. :kicking0:

Warmup: Row 800m
Lift: Back squats 45 X10/ 90, 110, 135 X5
Conditioning: 35# KB swings X30

Legs and foot feels weird after almost three months of either favoring the foot or being in the cast. Podiatrist said to resume all normal activities as quickly as possible to speed the healing. The squats did not hurt but they weren't "comfortable." Decided to do them today because we're planning to ski on Monday.

Have a wonderful holiday everyone. Wishing you all the very best of years in 2013!

The last set of Thrusters were awful!! Did them in 4 subsets which ragged me for the rest of the round - ended up forgetting the box jumps and air squats & had to make them up!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Back after too long of a hiatus. I recognize some of the old names and greet the new ones.

Just to catch up, I have been "self-training," first at a globo and now at home in a CF gym I've improvised as well as using some local resources outside my home. Those of you who are friends with me on FB probably caught my updates of running the side of the dam all summer, which was [B]amazing[/B] in terms of the fitness benefit. I [B]highly[/B] recommend uphill sprints for optiumum metabolic fitness, leanness and strength.

It usually involved a "warmup" of a 1/4 mile jog, followed by walk/jog 2-3 flights up the stairs on the side of US Army Corps of Engineers' dam (120 stairs), then I would do 3-6 sprints ME up the grass beside the stairs, a very severe incline, typically 45-50 yards, with necessary rests in between. I also did some Wendler 5/3/1 over the summer.

The weather being what it is, I am now doing an all-indoor routine, consisting of PTP (alternating days: bench, DL, squat/side press), followed by a Tabata of an assistive exercise re: the lift I did that day. So for example, this morning, I did:

2:30 on the treadmill, 10% incline
5 deep, slow OHS with Oly Bar

(weight is relatively low, just started this PTP routine and want to take it slow)

2x53# kbell (each side)
2x53# kbell (each side)

8x:20/:10 OHS with PVC (averaged 10-12 per round)

Also doing Janda situps 1-2X per week.

Have added in yoga 2-3X per week as well, the final, missing element of flexibility for me for a long time!

Will update as I progress. Anxious to go back and see what y'all have been up to!

Claw - Nice hike!

John - Welcome back.

Warmup: Row 800m; Abmat situps X2X20; back extensions X2X15; box squats 45, 85, 105 X5/ 130 X3
Lift: Box (12") squats 140, 160, 180 X5
Skills: OH squats 45 X3/ 65 X1 (f) (f); Power snatch 65, 75, 85, 95, 105, 110 X3/ 115 (f) (f)
Cash out: 35# KB swings X 35

At 115, the power snatches were more of a "snatch press" than a proper snatch so I didn't count them.
