Hey Tom,
That's interesting. I had never heard of a safety squat bar, I googled it. I hear you on hating metcons, squats and deadlifts are my favorite too. Either way those numbers are great numbers, looking foward to see your post when you hit 500. Just keep chipping away at the metcons maybe they will help improve your lifts. :)

Hi all,

Just a quick hello. Good work for our growing group! Tom, ditto on the metcons. I really like lifting too. Horrible about the killings.

Flew yesterday and had to spend all my free time working on my son's car today. A bit bummed because I didn't get to work out today.

Good night.

[I][B]090805 WEDNESDAY

REST DAY

[/B]Doing the August "Tabata Challenge", so warmed up with some double under practice (about 10:00). Got a good number (lost count) of 2 strung together, but no more than that. At least I'm consistent.....:shrug:

[B]Tabata Shoulder Presses @ 45#
[/B][/I]20 seconds "on" / 10 seconds "off" for a sum of eight (8) cycles over 4:00 total.
[B]TOTALS:[/B][B] 15/15/13/9/9/7/7/6 = 81[/B]
[I]I initially thought, never having done this before, that 45# might be too light. WRONG.......ended up frying my shoulders starting with the fourth cycle; reps in cycles 5 - 8 were broken.[/I]

[B][I]Later....Assist with training at cross-training class - 1 hour.
[/I][/B]Warmed up with more DU practice.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Steve, thanks for the props on the row. This is not my best (19:28), but I try to keep in under 20 for this distance. I do not row as much as I have in the past, my rower is at my office and I like to get to the gym at lunchtime for a respite. Keep at it. I find the more you row the better (more efficient) youi get. Remember it's similar to a seated deadlift. Use the legs.

Tom, those are some incredible #'s on the squats. Have to ask you, with all the prior injuries, is it prudent to go so heavy? I understand your desire to work to your strengths, but Crossfit is about balance and improving those areas we feel are less than strengths (METCON). Please take this with a grain of salt because I realize we all have different goals. Also, the only whining allowed here is the type that goes with cheese.

Tuesday PM - met with my stair group at a new venue. Was introduced to a hill called "Bid Bertha" ( about a 1/3 mile on a very steep incline). Workout was the following in any order broken into as many sets as needed: 3x farmers carry up the hill with 20# db's/kb's or a 40-50# sandbag, 50x 45# thrusters, 40 pullups, 30 pushups, 20 burpees and 2 runs on another trail (about 1/2 mile) with some decent inclines. I beat everyone, but two of the other guys handicapped themselves with weight vests (one guy with 20# and another sicko with 30# body armor and 30# backpack). these youngsters will never learn!

Wed - After a good warm up, did OHS's. Goal was 5x5 with 135#. Got 5,5,5,3,4,5. Had a little trouble with keeping it locked out and didn't want to dump it. No bumpers and I use a squat rack with the safeties. Dumping causes a terrific racket = unwanted attention.

[B]2009 08 06[/B]

[B]Linda[/B]…26 rounds! Yikes. Made me get tired just reading about your workout.

[B]Steve[/B]…Tabata shoulder press sounds like a new kind of pain. Embrace the suck, brother.

[B]Tom[/B]….Just used the Concept 2 pace calculator for your 5000m time. Comes out to a 1:56.8 and that my friend is smoking fast. BTW, just looking at the pic of your stairs makes me think about Pukie.

My workout today, at squadron PT in the base gym.

WU: ~5 min on the elliptical (since I can keep the wt on my toes and off the heel).

[B]Power Clean[/B] – Haven’t gone heavy on these in a while
WU: barx5, 65x5, 95x3, 115x3, 135x1
Working: 140 X 5, 155 X 5, 160 X 5 (5RM – pr)

[B]Back Squat[/B] (high rep) – the challenge was 205x20, did 205x15. Legs and lungs gave up at about the same time. This, too, is a new kind of suck.

5 min or so of heavy bag work. Haven’t done any of this for a good while. Trained for two years in Krav Maga, but it got too expensive.

Have a great day!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
[B]Pat[/B], I loved the whinner line. As far as CF evolved, I think that I should be in CF de-volved. I still have to say, that you are the man. I have been so impressed with how you can push yourself.

Charles P, Nice work on the high rep squats, not too many people understand the physical and mental demands of high rep BB squats. It truely takes a different mind set to go through this. I used to love these things, but I have found that I can not stand to have the bar on my shoulders for more than 8-10 reps now. So enjoy the pain.

[B]Tom G[/B], I ask myself the same question on an ongoing basis, and to a certain extent I have learned that I will only push when I feel like it. I have learned that I need to really listen to my body, and I can usually tell if it is a good day once I hit either 315 or 365lb. I agree with you, that I need to hit the Met-cons as this is a weakness for my overall conditioning. But, since coming to CF I have found that it is easier to go heavy on certain lifts than run or burpees, which would flat out kill me....not from a conditioning perspective, but from true joint pain. Therefore, I am going to experiment with a hybrid program of CFStrenght Bias and Heavy Met-Con ladders. This will focus more on higher reps with heavier weights, followed by heavy ladders of 3 exercises (that my joints can tolerate) starting with 3 reps and adding 3 reps on each succesive set working up to 15 reps. I think that this will keep my ego in check, and at the same time force me to face my "Inner Whinner".

Share your thoughts.

I dread the day burpees comes up in a workout at my gym. So far, so good. :cool:

Today's workout was:

“Nancy”

Five rounds for time of:
400 meter run
95 pound Overhead squat, 15 reps

My time: 16:00

I used 26# bar for the first round (my first time doing OHS with weight), then down to 14# because I need work on form. It was still tough!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Tom, thanks for the props. I did not do much met con after knee surgery in 2004. But I did lift 3-4 times a week. I got heavier and stronger. I never did 1 rep max's. Never anything less then 3-5 reps. So with crossfit, the metcons blew me away. I'm coming up on 10 months or so of crossfit and I actually enjoy them. I also think that what Terry suggested is true. The metcons add strength and depth. I will probably compete in at least the Senior Olympics' Powerlifting next winter. I don't intend to do any special training for the event. The folks here encouraged me to continue to work on general fitness and I'm sticking to the advice.

Today's a rest day for me. The L pull ups look interesting and I'll have to do towel pull ups as I have no rope.

Diane Dennis 08-06-2009 01:04 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Interesting metcon vs. lifting discussion, gentlemen. For me, as long as my metcon has no burpees, I'm OK with it!

Today - 08/06/09
Noon group workout on the North Shore with Patrick

WU:
Fussing and fuming in the car as I sat in gridlock traffic due to a road closure.
Sprinting from the car to the park because I was late.

WOD:
4 x
20 bench dips
1 minute bench jumps

4 x
1 minute triceps push-ups on bench
1 minute squat jumps (tough after yesterday's bottom-to-bottom squats)

3 x
30 lunge walks

[B]Pat,[/B] I experienced a 20lb weight gain after neck surgery, and could only lift up to 40lbs post op. The strenght came back more so than met-con and as a result my met-con's simply suck. [B]I agree with Terry G[/B], and my goal is to incorporate CF movements that do not kill me and utilize them for met-cons. Since I really am just starting with CF, I am weeding my way through those exercises. As it makes no sense to be able to move the house if your out of breath running around it.

As I make these adjustments, my inner whinner, who sounds alot like "Mr. Bill", is saying Oh No!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
I got back to the gym this morning.

Today's WOD 21-15-12-9-7
OHS (pvc) I'll add some weight next time
Push ups
KB Sumo Dead lift high pull #24
Push press #55
Knees to Chest (Captains chair)

Since I've been doing this since November, I've noticed a few things:

I have had less injuries.

My knees are actually better. I don't have a lot of pain. I tore my meniscus a few years ago but my doctor and I came to the conclusion that I shouldn't have the surgery

I rarely try to use a lot of weight because I don't want to risk serious injury. I have to much to lose and I like this too much. I generally would rather do more reps etc. I will gradually bring up the weight. What's the hurry? I'm 60.

A few quick questions - what's a met-con and what is everyone here doing about diet? Zone?

Diane Dennis 08-06-2009 04:15 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Jay - Met con = Metabolic Conditioning. See this thread from the CrossFit message boards: [URL="http://board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=3854&page=1"]http://board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=3854&page=1[/URL]

Regarding diet, I don't Zone because I would lose my gourmet mind if I did. Instead, every day I think about the CrossFit credo on diet which is:

"Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat".

I include fish with "meat" and hope that wine falls into the "fruit" category!

Diane Mahoney 08-06-2009 06:02 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
That is so funny about wine being in the fruit category! I am doing "mostly Paleo" the past couple of weeks but for the past couple of years of have been following the Body for Life eating plan (6 meals a day, equal carb and protein (lower fat)). It works well for me but in May I went to Pittsburgh and gained 10 pounds (Diane! Mancini's! And sausage and beer and beer and chips).

Now I can't remember what else I was going to say. My body hurts in the strangest places. Really looking forward to resr day tomorrow.

rest day
Diane Mahoney tell me your at Abasin or keystone, Breck, copper some place cool in the winter cutting it up in deep powder. If I were that close to all that I would hope to be out at least 30 days a season so tell me are you out there in the snow tearing it up all you can during the season

Tom Rolen 08-06-2009 08:38 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Diane D.; I liked the wine being a fruit, that was good.

Jay S.; Your line regarding adding weight and what's the hurry is classic. I will steal that sometime.

Pat Q; Have you given any thoughts in competing in Senior Games, like Shot Put or one of the other field events?

Day 1 of my hybrid routine:
CFStrength Bias DB Shoulder Press 50 x 5; 55 x 5; 60 x 5 reps x 3.

Met-Con was a triplet consisting of 65lb KB Swings, DLHP 150lb; Pull Ups.
5 Sets of 3reps, 6reps, 9reps, 12reps, and 15reps for Swings and DLHP. Pull Ups reps 1, 3, 4, 5, 5. Thank goodness for Pull Up assist. Completed in approx. 22 minutes without nausea. Take that you inner whinner!:pepper:

Steve,

Hope that the hip is feeling better.

I really thank you for the idea regarding tabada BW Squats. I will add this soon, and I mean very soon.

Pointing different types of training/conditioning concepts out is what I like about this Board, as it causes one to see the whole forest and not the tree. And sometimes when needed the tree.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
What exactly is metcon? I know the answer is here somewhere!

I haven't skiied in years, John. It's a lot more fun to do during the week than on the crowded weekends. Maybe I'll get up there a time or two this coming season. I'm a little squeamish after a friend of mine skiied into a tree a couple of years ago. I'm pretty much a big scardy cat. I am afraid of water and box jumps.

Rest day is terrific!

[B]Diane[/B] - Mancini's!! Whenever I see a Mancini's bread truck, I have to run the other direction. I haven't had white bread in my mouth in over 2 1/2 years but just smelling fresh Mancini's could do me in.

Linda[/B] - Nice KBS!

[B]John[/B] - Can't wait to see what your CFT is today
[B]
Stephen[/B] - Be careful! Don't do anything that might exacerbate the problem. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Today - 08/07/09
11:AM workout in the gym with Bill

WU - stretching, run to gym, row 500m (some nimrod put the damper back on 10 and the lever is broken off so you can't easily move it down :ranting2: )

My workout was a bunch of things in rapid succession so I might not remember everything:

90 sec sit-ups: 67
2 min jumping jacks: 162
60 sec sit-ups: 52
60 sec jumping jacks: 95
40 sec sit-ups: 37

2 x
lateral dumbbell swings, #20 1 minute (very easy, don't remember the counts)
dumbbell push presses, 25#, 1 minute (too heavy for my left side, had to switch to #15 to make it through the round), 22 then 18

Regular dumbbell swings - don't remember the details

More frustrating pull-up work. I think I'm actually getting worse! :bonk::bonk::bonk:

Ran backwards up the hill to home. My speed on the backwards run has improved dramatically because I now know where all of the manhole covers and other obstacles are and can avoid them without turning around.

Rest day tomorrow. After 5 days on, I need it!

Thanks for the info on Met-Con. I guess I'm a Met-Con type of guy.

I'm trying to integrate the Zone diet into what I am doing now. I was starting off good today when someone here in the office gave my a great piece of birthday cake. I completley forgot everything.

Today's WOD

Tabata

Dips - Pullups-Situps - Push ups - Squats - Knees to chest.

I do this assisted. Someday without. I can't keep track of reps and time very well so I did it for 20 minutes.

Tomorrow I through the metal around.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
a whole lotta Tabata goin' on. Haven't see one on the main site for a while so I guess one's coming. Holding at the bottom of a squat is really difficult for me---so I did some today.

The workout was from yesterday: 3RFT 21 L-Pull Ups, 15' rope climb. Subbed a knee up and used a tricept bar for 15 side to side pull ups. I could not hold the towel (ah yes! one more skill to work on!:p) to pull myself up. I finished this in 9:11.

I finished off the work out with 5 X 5 BS (185#) while holding the bottom position for a few seconds--just long enough to take the "bounce" out of the movement.

Usually after a WOD, I can get to a box or something and sit and gasp until I recover. I don't normally fall to the floor in a puddle of my own sweat but this was an introduction to a new kind of suck ! Why does this stuff always look easier on paper (or the monitor) ?

Mowed yard yesterday and did a lot of yard work. Did not have time to go the gym today so I did 50 x 2 pushups in the morning and 50 x 2 pushups in the evening. I am maxing out on my deadlift in the morning, hoping to get 425.

I went to CrossFit in the park today. The Rx'd workout was 100 burpees, and if you stopped for more than five seconds, you had to run 100 meters. Since I'd not done burpees before (at CrossFit anyway), I got scaled back to 100 pushups on my knees. I ran 6 times. Nice break!

The knee pushups are becoming too easy. A month ago I could not do a single all-the-way-to-the-ground regular pushup. Did ten in my living room a little while ago. :evilsmile

Since I didn't think I worked hard enough at CrossFit, I ran 1.5 miles around the park behind my building. Now I'm satisfied.

I was eating a Supreme protein bar during the WOD and I noticed a bring difference in endurance. I never tried that before.

"It's not the reps,time orweight that counts, it's the satisfation you get from doing them."
