Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Glad everyone seems on the mend!! Deb and yay for no serious heart issue!

Warmup: We did one, sad that I can't remember what it was.

Workout: 3 rounds for time 17:05
24 pull-ups (band)
12 bar dips
75 squats

4 min amrap
5 kipping swings
5 push ups
5 squat jumps
4 min mobility stretching, shoulder and wrist
Workout: 30 minute AMRAP
10 burpees
10 CTB (band)
10 squat cleans 75#
10 box jumps 20" box
5 rounds + 2 burpees

I do all of my WOD's at 5:30am on an empty stomach and this one really sucked the life out of me in the last 10 minutes. I really don't want to have to get up any earlier than 4:30 so that I can eat something, but I may have too. Any suggestions from you more experienced folks?

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Right on the line between 5 and 6, all rounds but two at 6 cals.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Warmup: Row 500, squat, lunge, shoulder mobility & stretch w/balls, snatch grip backsquat to OHS warmup

Complete as many reps as possible in 10:00 of:
bodyweight deadlifts
perform 5 pull-ups every minute on the minute, starting at minute zero!
cash-out: 3:00 max effort burpees
WOD score= total deads+total burpees
[B]54 DL + 40 Burpees = 94 (150#)[/B] Totally disappointed with this one. The pullups were for s**t after the first half I'd say, screwed me up, definitely a lot of shoulder and low back fatigue from the squatting/snatching/pullups lately. The tear in my palm was a very minor irritation, the problem was my left shoulder was killing me after the first 4 rounds or so, couldn't make it off the bar after that, I was getting 5 DLS in the last 10 or so secs, and my coach was VERY generous with the deadlift time (he let me get a rep in before calling switch) round was only 1 deadlift!!! Embarrassing, & 150's a nothing weight for me - when I got there, I started repping 200 accidentally. I said, gee this is HEAVY - my coach said, that's Rich's bar (duh!)

And he said my plank burpees need to be lower. Gotta work on that one. I just can't get up from laying on the floor in a burpee!! I relax at the bottom.

Afterwards, about 50 SLDL 135# & 125#
Dropped wt. after the first few sets, trouble keeping form, low back fatigue.

I think I might just be out of shape, maybe start doing the morning burpees again....seems like the WODs get harder and harder and Im not recover very quickly.

Jim Cordes 01-28-2011 09:56 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
1/28 WOD

"The Bear"
5 Rounds for Load (25 minute cap): (No Rx weight on this, you are trying to see how much weight you can complete it with)

One Round is 7 reps of:
Power Clean to
Front Squat to
Push Press to
Back Squat to
Push Press.


The Bear is always tough. Stepped 95# to 100# on fourth round because I could not find two 5# weights to go straight to 105#. Fail at 105# because I had to let go of the bar a couple of times, and in fact I dropped it two or three times. Big crowd this morning, made it real fun!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Did the Arizona Regional Senior Olympics Powerlifting competition today. This was a mixed bag of a competition: raw and assisted (power suites and power wraps). Results:

Back Squat (done on Smith machine:shrug:) 400, 440, passed on third lift as the exercise just seemed strange on this machine.

Bench Press: 270, 290, 305 (f).

Deadlift: 425, 465, 485.

Got a gold medal in my age group (65-69) against experienced powerlifters.

This was fun. Next competition is Arizona State Senior Olympics will be raw and includes regular back squats.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Wow a Gold Medalist among us! Nice work [B]Pat[/B], glad you had fun. [B]John B.[/B] 12 mins after all that strength stuff? :yikes: I will never catch up with you guys....

Warmup: cold medicine, squats, lunges, shoulder mobility, DH pullups etc. I felt a tweak down the back of my i dont know shoulder & trap?? Its weird because only when I hang a certain way from the bar can I feel it, I dont know if its a pull or strain, Ive had it a while but its hard to get it to hurt, I know doesn't make sense. I wish I could name the muscle, meant to ask the coach b/c he's also a physical therapist but I forgot!! so much to learn.

[B]FDU Weightlifting w/Nick[/B]
Everything is in kg. ? So i have to guess weights. They were very LIGHT, I know that i guess the highest was 45 kg?? worked up to that weight and it stayed till squats & press.

[B]Power Cleans[/B]
4x3xbar this was from the floor, no clue what I was doing.
4x3x35kg? These got better as he was cueing me.

He was teaching me my setup & lift off... and explaining to keep my back angle, & pull the bar IN after the lift off, and even tho its a power clean STILL DROP UNDER IT (this is classic me, Ill stand straight up on a powerclean). Don't bend backward, dont move my back backwards, dont jump backwards, dont reverse curl it, its UP and A$$ DOWN. He also said my levers are long? whatever that means, and so I have to use that... told me STAY OVER THE BAR!!!!! I move my back backwards; apparently my clean really needs work (and I knew that!!;) )

[B]Hang Power Cleans[/B]
4x3x45kg? Might have done more of these; Gotta start journaling as I go along - the whole workout was 1.5 hrs.
Clean Liftoff[/B]
5x5 45kg? - this was just to teach me the back thing, just to below knees. Told me don't rush. He was saying almost all the misses I saw were b/c the setup wasn't great.
Clean Liftoff + Clean Pull[/B]
4x3 45kg?
Front Squat[/B]
4x4 at 35kg?? pretty easy
Press[/B] these were prehab he said (?)
5x5 at 20 or 25kg?? pretty easy

Kind of intimidating, everybody there is so strong - and so FAST!

400m partner wall ball passing. Any dropped pass receives 3 burpee penalty on the spot (15 penalties). 25 burpees. 200m partner wall bass pass backwards. (No penalties).

[U]Team WOD[/U]

You can allocate work between partners any way you want, and switch at any time.
My partner (the box owner) definitely carried me some, but kept the intensity at a new level.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Been dealing with a lot of personal-life drama since the holidays. Diet has been so-so and basically no exercise, so I put on some fat/out of shape. Hopefully, that's over (for the most part). Got a nice FB message from one of the regulars here a couple of weeks ago, and it's good to be back.

(Brand X'ing my way back into it)

500m Row (2:00)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[B]Pat nice job on the Gold!![/B] I competed in my first CF event on Saturday morning, a throwdown between our affiliate CF Impulse and CFHSV. It was nice just seeing what the competition atmosphere is all about. There were 4 teams of beginners and 3 WOD's. The team I was on took all three wod's.

1/29 WOD

"Fight Gone KJ":
One minute at each station, then one minute rest, three rounds.
Ring Dips (Had to use blue band on final round to get full ROM)
OHS (75)
GHD sit ups (only to parallel with floor)
Push Ups
KB swings (1.5pd)
Score: 301

This one burned my tricepts! Mobility WOD right after also focused on arms, so they were pretty beat (besides doing Bear the day before). Nice WOD, KJ!

1/31 WOD
Baseline: 4:38

Pushups (competition)
Double unders

Big time cheat day yesterday, so not 100%. Baseline score keeps moving the other direction, but at least my reps are all good.
Mannie took a while. Double unders actually OK, except rope not good. I need a good rope! At one point it got tangled in my shoe laces, costing me time to get it untangled.

6x50 (0:41-42 secs on 90 secs)

Felt good. Wanted to do Saturday's Crossfit workout tonight, but had to work late and catch up on some volunteer work at home. Probably not a bad idea as I want to avoid pushing myself too hard in advance of this week's ski trip (providing the damn weather doesn't affect my flight on Thurs morning). I was also tempted to do the DL/400m run WOD, but I think discretion is the better part of valor right now. My back is just getting healed, but I love the looks of that WOD. Tapering down this week. :shrug:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
1.30.11 Sunday
Did a nice 1 1/2 hour XC ski loop, most of it breaking trail. New edged skis with NNN BC boots and bindings. Boots bruised and blistered both my big toes
right at bottom of the nail.

1.31.11 Monday night in Motown.
Did my first CFT tonight, so these are all PR's. :D

Press 85#, my form was really, really atrocious. I had a difficult time keeping my hips under my shoulders, have a tendency to lean back even before I pick up the bar. Failed at 95# twice, once with a fault and once just because I couldn't move the weight without pushing. Felt good cleaning it up to rack though.
Deadlift 205#' felt good here, failed twice at 215#
Squat 185#, this was where I felt the best. No failures, but I definitely felt maxxed out.
So, my inaugural CFT: 475#!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
so back to the box tonite after almost a week off due to getting told in no uncertain terms to stop all upper body work by my phyiso. she read the post surgery report and there was lots more done inside my shoulder than we first thought. but after phyiso tonite she is very pleased with the way everything is behaving.

also being sick, run down, not mentaly feeling great, just a general **** poor attitude and just in a weird space. slept for 19 hours between friday nite and sunday morning and still felt off kilter for most of sunday.

just getting bored dragging the sled. i want to be healed NOW not 6 or 9 months from now. but i know i need to go slow and that is the hardest part.

Still Brand X'ing it, judging by how relatively sore I am this AM, not a bad approach. Gonna slowly dial up the intensity and see how far I can go; can't really afford to join a box right now and the place I live provides a free membership at a decent enough globo plus I have some of my own gear at home (k-bells, bike trainer, jump-rope, weight vest). And I have a basement area where I can do deads, BP and squats— once I get my gear out of the house where my soon-to-be ex lives.

Think I will go back to 5/3/1 once I get through a few weeks of Brand X type stuff, get a reasonable conditioning baseline. Got in great shape and strong with that over the summer.

Gotta get my diet back in line too. Too much sugar in the p.m.. Feelin' a little bit ummm . . . expansive . . . around the midsection.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
so i was talking to a friend of mine who is a trail builder. he has a contract to rebuild a hiking trail in one of our local parks. he needs to get 80 - 80 lb bags of concrete to 5 places along this trail and asked if we could help out.


i just spoke to our coach who when i told him my idea he said the first thought that came to mind was that sounds awful. then it sounds like right up our alley.

should make for an interesting wod saturday.

no prob [B]JJ[/B]...

Warmup: Row 500, pushups, squat, sn. grip squat to press to OHS drill, shoulder mobility & stretch

For time:
50 hand release push-ups
40 toes to bar
30 deadlifts - 135# (85#)
20 burpee bar hops (jump & clap over the barbell)
10 thrusters - 135# (85#)
[I]compare times to 09/27/2010[/I]
[B]11:30 or so 95#, 20# abmat situps for T2B[/B]
I blew this workout with stupidity on the thrusters.:mad: @ the same time as sept., except this time holding 20# over my face abmats.
Got 20 pushups in a row yay! then needed 15sec rests to make the rest planked/somewhat planked.
That shoulder pain, not worth the T2B, Id rather lift. How beneficial are they really since you're kipping, I only feel them a little, way in my upper ab, could I do them lying on the floor like a pike with an ankleweight? Next time maybe GHD? Maybe next time hand release burpees too.

The thrusters: Couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting good depth, only 4-5 of them were even decent, disappointingly. Someone mentioned weightlifting shoes when we were done, I had to try. Much better! I realized when I left - ITS MY STANCE. They've told me at Weightlifting at least 4 times my stance is too narrow for my height, widen to make space to get lower. DUH!! Seems to be a CF habit, esp. with the thrusters. Gotta remember that next time; haste makes waste (or head like a sieve!! :D sr. moment).

Tomorrow is another WOD I'd like to do, but probably should rest for Weightlifting Thurs. (I dont know what Im doing Thurs, havent pressed in two worksouts, the WOD has pushpresses - torn here, because I really like CF AND lifting).
Did a few DH pullups in a row easy before wod; go figure, never done that before usually singles. Can't have gotten stronger from only 2-3 weeks of lifting...

[B][U]February 1[/U][/B]
10 minutes of jump rope practice
3 sets of DH pull-ups (3,3,3), 55# KBS (5,5,5), squats (10, 10, 10)
Dynamic stretching and mobility work
For time:
20 inch Box jump, 50 reps
Rope climb, 5 ascents
1.5 pood Kettlebell swing, 50 reps
50 sit-ups
40 pound dumbbell Hang power clean, 50 reps (had to sub 30# DBs, my heaviest)
800 meter Run
50 Back extensions

Felt good tonight! 20" box jumps were pretty easy compared to 24", but started getting hard at 40. Rope climbs were pretty easy. Took it slow on KBS and back ext due to back concerns. Forearms were burning pretty good after the HPCs.
