The usual assortment of youngsters and me.

I am now sitting at the local BMW dealership waiting for my car to pass inspection. Apparently, there is some sort of problem with the seat that is going to take another hour. Grrr! I would pass the time reading old CF Journal articles but I can't remember my password.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Buy In:
2 Rnd:
5 Inverted Burpees
5 Knee 2 Elbows
5 Toes 2 Bar
"Grace": Scaled to 45lb @ 30 reps
with sqt cleans and push jerks
Time: 4:25

I wanted to practice my form so I chose a light weight and tried to keep my time under 5 minutes. In the future should I increase my weight while keeping my form and my time (under 5 minutes) or should I stay light and try to push under 3 minutes? Any comments would be apprieciated.
Outstanding!!! 45lb gain on your push press is very impressive.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Great work yesterday everybody. It was mostly a rest day for me, but did do a 5:00 met con with my class. As many rounds as possible of PKSS holding 20# db's and doing a one arm row each arm and a second push-up. I lost track but think it was only 20-21.


Super PR(s) on your PP. Amazing improvement! :pepper:


I'd say it depends on your goals and strength/weaknesses re: how to scale Grace. Personally, I'm usually strength limited on these types of WOD's, so if I can do them as rx'd, I figure I'll get stronger. I'd recommend doing Grace at the highest weight that you can handle safely and with good form (some deterioration likely by the end) and at a pace that keeps me breathing hard. It took me about 2 years to get to the point of doing this one as rx'd.


CFWUx15 reps x 1 set
Bench Press: 44x5; 95x5; 114x3; 132x5; 142x5
High Rep BP: 114 x 15

Met Con: Grace
30 x 135# Cln (pwr) and Jerk (push); rx'd;
9:20 (PR by 3:30!)

Have a great week-end everyone.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Robert, Scott, and John, I am impressed by those GRACE times. I have been sticking to 100lbs. the last few times and I have not broken 11 minutes yet. I always do full squat cleans, and I cannot dump the weight. I always have to set it down. If you are dumping weight and doing power cleans you may have some edge, but I cannot come close to any of you at this point. I am always breathing hard after 3 C&J's and then I feel like I am getting anything but grace from thereon. I will keep chasing.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Nice performances by all. Very tired and getting up early to do it again. We are also starting the process of moving out of our home starting this week, found a nice rental, should be fun...bleh :( I guess its a good thing I am now functionally fit.

WOD 5-8-09[/B]
135 pound Clean (pwr) and Jerk (push), 30 reps

5:20 RX'd (PR)

Did this WOD on 1/3/09 when I was very new to Crossfit, my time then was 13:25. We finished this one off with 150 abmat sit ups, goal was to see how few of sets you could do 150 in. Did all 150 in 1 set. Link to our posted times, a lot of no shows today. (WFS) [url][/url]
