Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Went to Tribal three times this week. This self imposed resolution to either go and work out OR stay home and warm up and stretch has provided an interesting motivational platform. Two mornings this week, I was just up early enough and figured I'd go and work out cause I was up already.

Today's WOD: 3 RFT
155 # front squat for 7 R
53# KB for 21 R
50 Double Unders (scale 3:1)
12: 37.

Michael, Thanks! My knees were SORE from the Bike ride and the squats. You were right about the Lateral Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) Those are Awesome goals! You will be amazed at what you will achieve!

Pat, Nice WOD!!

[I]Thought Deadlifts would be a good way to end the week. I also kind of wanted to see how I stand with respect to the guys in my age bracket. WOW! The DLs were tough! Tried to do them in subsets of 5, but ended doing 3 or 4 in a row. I could feel them when starting the box Jumps! Did several 2 to step ups to get me going. I would have been 21st out of all the Masters in my age bracket!! :rofl: Most of them did it in less than 5 min! I've got aways to go! :D[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
7/29 WOD
A. 3 Position Power Clean, 5 sets, rest as needed with 12min cap (ground, knees, high hang)
125-145(f high hang)-135-135-135

B. EMOTM, 10:00
odd- 5 Push Press
even- 5 Bent Over Barbell Row
Used 115# for both, challenging on push presses, easy on barbell row.

C. EMOTM, 10:00
odd- 8 Kettlebell Swings
even- 8 burpees
1.5 pood until I saw Ralph and MikeMac using 2 pood, then 2 pood.

With all the Endurance Training lately, I have barely touched iron. Nice to get back in the gym and throw some weight around. Strength down a little. On PC progression thought I loaded 135 on second set, was surprised to fail high hang clean, then realized I loaded 145 on by mistake. Decided to stick with 135 to complete the movements. Using 115# on push presses gave me a chance to work on legit push presses (i.e. not pseudo jerks). Glad I went up to 2 pood on Kb swings after first round.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@ Pat Q

I haven't done any 1 rep max for quite a while. Should be coming up in the next few weeks. I pulled 505 on DL eight weeks ago but that was after a very long hiatus and I've been hitting it hard and heavy ever since, so I'm sure it's up a bit.... My squat is in the 405-415 range if my knees aren't aching... So my three lift combo is 1125 or more on a good day.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 11:01 PM.
