[quote=Stephen R. Lampl;786937]Great job, Bill. Going overhead kills the arms for burpees and the burpees make going overhead difficult...And yeah, that last little WOD must have been pretty nasty![/quote]

"last little WOD"!!!:yikes: We wanted to slap the instructor who suggested it!:) (at least we could swagger through the next class with the "We so tough" walk!)

Dynamic stretching (pass throughs, walking lunges, hip extensions, inch worms, sprints)

400m run
50 air squats


(at least I wasn't the last one!:pepper:) We felt our quads from the day before.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Terry, thanks much for sharing your OHS experience. It certainly validates what I'm experiencing, but I now know just to be patient and keep after the skill work on OHS.

Bill, I hear you with regard to the instructor. Seems there can be a little mischievous pleasure in programming of some WODs here and there. Reminds me almost of a PT instructor or two I had at my LE academy years ago. They took perverse pleasure in having us do an inordinate number of push ups or sit-ups at times.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Been out of town for most of the week in NYC. Had a chance to hook up with Eric at Crossfit Metropolis on Wednesday where we did split jerks. His group was pretty new to oly lifts so he started the instruction from scratch which is good. Always smart to get back to basics sometimes. I always learn something new at a different affiliate when I'm traveling. We did a similiar exercise that Bill mentioned. Only this one we just leaned forward to fall down (coach spotted) and the foot the snapped forward to catch you is the dominant one. I had been using the wrong foot and my jerk movement improved by switching.

As a result of the travel, working out is spotty.


WU, one mile run, paced at 9:00min

Bench Press 5-5-5-5-5
135 lbs, 135 lbs, 155 lbs, 175 lbs, and 155 lbs

Kettlebell Swing 5x5
55 lbs, 65 lbs, 75 lbs, 75 lbs, and 75 lbs

Wednesday (CF Metropolis)

Split Jerk 3-3-3-3-3
95 lbs, 95 lbs, 105 lbs, 135 lbs(1), and 135 lbs

I built a Pull up bar and made some rings for the garage so may as well use them.

5 Rounds for time,
Run 400m, 15 ring dips, 15 pull ups

Terry, It's great to see you are still on the leader board for the Masters. Way to go:notworth:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Sounds like the NYC trip was great. I glad for the wealth of knowledge out there in the greater CF community - - it's good to meet up with others and work on those things they specialize in.....

Props on constructing your own rings and pull-up bar. How did you build the pull-up bar; I'm thinking of putting one up on my garage, but have a high ceiling (11.5 feet) and don't know if I want to pony up $100 - $200 for one.
