Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
hi all,

glad to see you all still up at at it with living!!!!

Have been busy getting my pesky back into some sort of functional order..with reasonable success.

Concentrating on improving the hip hinge movement , keeping moving, trying to maintain some level of fitness.

Back at CFR.

working towards:

5 set 5 reps holding perfect form across no exceptions.
Deadlift @ 60% body weight
Press/push press push jerk: # between 25-30%
Oh Squat, front squat ,back squat @ between 25- 30 %

when this is achieved then I can look at perhaps reintroducing cleans etc. but we shall see.

and keeping core strength with planks, waiters walks with kettle bells
and doing WODs modified or scaled according to physio approval ( I am lucky ..i physio does CF at the same sessions as I do... he does not mind the odd question or request fro advice.. he says it is far better that watching the train wreck happen and having to put the bits back together :)


ps. will start boring you with WOD details starting next monday :devil:

Alden - That weed sounds NASTY!! I hope your shoulders feel better!

Helen - Glad to see you back! That sounds real cool that your physio WODs with you! I wish more doctors would work out. We had a reservist MD give running classes at the base this week. One of my CrossFit buds took it & learned A LOT!

@Bill, nice job on the 295# squat

Thursday March 26, 2015

signed some copies of AMRAP Murder

10 walking lunges with 11# bar overhead
3 pullups
3 dips
2 burpees
10 OHS with 11# bar

then played around with some empty bar drills, trying to use my legs to get the bar overhead instead of my back.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
JT - Wow! I'll have to read it! (Not sure if the wife will let me! :D)

400 m run
100+ SUs
10 leg swings on each for both directions
10 air squats
10 Push Ups
14 Dead Bugs
10 Burpees (YAY! BURPEES!!)

Open WOD 15.5
Row for Cal
65# Thrusters


[I]It took me 2 min to get the row done and 8 min to get the 1st two rounds done. I wasn't pushing it on the rows, about 2 pulls per cal (though the first cals on the last rounds took more pulls!) It really wasn't a bad WOD![/I]

Explained the difference between rowing for calories and rowing for distance about 50 times.

pass throughs, goblet squat, hip stretches, empty bar drills

Snatch Workout (trying to be more upright and use my legs instead of my back)
2 for 2 at 40kg
2 for 2 at 50kg
2 for 2 at 55kg
2 for 2 at 60kg
1 for 1 at 65 kg
3 for 5 at 70 kg (this is my normal meet opening weight)
5 for 5 at 50kg (went down to a sure weight to work on the adjusted setup. By setting up better I keep my shoulders over the bar better, which prevents being pulled forward so much, which in turn prevents having to over compensate by using my back to loop it up. This could really improve my snatches, and my cleans, and reduce back pain, once I get it ingrained)
