Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Cliff, sorry to hear about the shoulder.

Thursday December 18, 2014

Looking forward to heading home tomorrow.
The sun in Florida warms my skin but my family in Ohio warms my soul.

Nice hour long walk on the beach, sunny and warm.

Held various squats and plank positions in the sand.

Back at the hotel gym...
Did rounds of single arm dumbbell presses and pull downs

Ran the rack on the dumbells at ten reps each side from 5# to 50# increasing by 5#

Added one plate to the pulldown machine each time. By the end it felt like about 1/2 my body weight.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
400m run
10 leg swings, each leg, both directions
10 Air Squats
30 sec fingertip plank
10 Push Ups
10 Bar taps
5 Pull Ups
5 Chin ups
10 Hollow Rocks
10 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
10 45# Presses
10 45# OHS
Burgener Warm Up

6 RFT:
9 95# DLs
6 95# Power Snatch
3 95# OHS


[I]I had gotten some intel on this WOD & since 115# is my 1RM Squat, 95# seemed to be a go way to go! The snatches were the toughest part of the WOD IMHO. I used the last snatch of each round for the 1 OHS. Though, I dropped the bar on the last OHS! :( I had the slowest time on the borad, but I was happy to keep it under 15 min![/I]


100 GHD sit ups (Not for time)

[I]We'll see how these feel after a few days!![/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Bill, 100 GHD situps would cripple me...

Saturday December 20, 2014

Got up at 6:30, waited until 7:40 for the sun to "rise" (the overcast sky got a little lighter...)

Didn't feel 100% today, so I took it easy. Did some mobility work and then did C&J practice in the barn going up to 185#. Nothing too tough.
