SQUATS: 3-3-3-3-3: 205; 215; 225; 235; 245 (2 REPS AND FAILED). Felt myself going too far forward on last rep so backed off.

Worked on dead lift form: 4 sets of 10 @ 185. Will not go heavy on dead lifts until my form is perfect as keep hurting myself on these. Not today though.

The first time I did Tabata This, my least rep score was 56 but that was with jumping Push Ups! This time, I did it Rx! so i consider that a victory. :)

We got a surprise during the Skill section. My buddy who had the Diverticulitis showed up!! He's still in recovery & coming up to see us was a WOD in it self, but, considering what he's been through, he looks REALLY GOOD! If he hadn't been CrossFitting... I shutter to think where he'd be. His goal is to be back working out after the New Year!! That was cool!! :D[/I]

Perry I learned something yesterday and I've been doing CF for a year and a half. I tend to keep my arse too high so yesterday the trainer really worked on my form. All this time I have not been activating my lats during my dead-lift. The simple act of getting my butt down and then activating my lats completely took all pressure off of my lower back.

I decided right then and there that I would lower my weights on dead-lift until I have re-trained my muscle memory to activate the lats first. Love this stuff.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Michelle: I'm having a hard time trying to picture your too high arse. Please post photos. These would be used purely in the interests of perfecting cross fit form, of course.

But seriously, I'm being given all kinds of conflicting advise. 'Your butt should be lower than your hips"; and raise your butt to keep tension on your hamstrings"; or, " A dead lift isnt a squat" (whatever that means!)

I had PRed at 275 but kept hurting myself. I'm going to keep working at around 185lbs, experimenting with different forms until it just starts to feel good and no pressure on my back. I'm sure it will click soon.

Today: Core routine; flat, incline and decline bench workout; 4 mile run (28 min. 35 secs.). Really concentrating on trying to relax my breathing on the runs to get comfortable sustaining a faster pace. Some days, like today, it works.

12/9 WOD

Drop in at Crossfit Invictus
Warm Up
Three sets of:
Bench Press x 6-8 reps @ 135#
Rest 15-20 seconds
Dynamic Push-Ups x 10-12 reps
Rest 3 minutes.

Then, against a 4-minute running clock, with 4-minutes rest between sets, complete three sets of the following for max reps of pull-ups:

Row 500 Meters
Kettlebell Swings x 30 reps
Pull-Ups x Max Reps

12/12/13
First round of k-bell swings was overhead (American style), but they swing Russian style (to eyes) which I prefer. It was cool to drop in and be recognized by Michelle and CJ.

AGREED! Butt position is CRITICAL with the Dead Lift! And getting your lats involved helps. Surprisingly, if your form is correct, lifting 300+ lbs on a Dead lift puts little strain on your back.

[I]Slowest in the group, BUT they're ALL younger than me! (By Decades!!)

Box Jumps were the bottle neck. I stepped down, slower than jumping down, but faster than jumping down & resetting & jumping up again. Of course this has been a GREAT week, set 3 PRs, so I'll take it!! [/I]
