Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
You guys are all talking about eating. Fell off my Paleo challenge. Back to my partial compliance. Going to LA next week and I doubt I will hop back on board then. Looking forward to working out at Valley Crossfit once or twice.

After warm up: WOD 1 from CFFB:
3X5 back squat(add 5#): 245, 255, 260
3X5 bench press(add 5#): 190,195,200.

Thursday 100826

For time:
21 Pull-ups
21 Handstand Push-ups
18 Pull-ups
18 Handstand Push-ups
15 Pull-ups
15 Handstand Push-ups
12 Pull-ups
12 Handstand Push-ups
9 Pull-ups
9 Handstand Push-ups
6 Pull-ups
6 Handstand Push-ups
3 Pull-ups
3 Handstand Push-ups
Handstand push-ups are "nose to floor" and pull-ups are "strict" or non-kipping.

Scale: pullups w. parallel grip, and HSPU's w. toes over bar at shoulder height. Ran low on time so I only did rounds 15......3. Time of 5:49.

-Move 4,000lbs from floor to overhead
-Deadlift 10,000lbs
-200 Sit-ups or 100 Knees to Elbows

Strength: work up to max 1 rep push press
65(5)/85(5)/90(f)/90(1)/95(1) [SIZE=5]100(1)PR :pepper::pepper: [SIZE=2](this was one of my top goals of the year!! Now for that ring dip!!)[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Then I added work up to max 1 rep power clean:
didn't want to do too many cuz we had them in the WOD today
so I did: 85 (3)/ 95(1)/95(1)/[SIZE=5]105(1)PR:pepper::pepper:[/SIZE]
Then the WOD....
3 rft
800M run
10 power clean (155/105)—>scaled to 85
(should have gone to 90! I was kind of afraid cuz I knew the runs would kill me and I had done a lot of strength already)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
8/30 WOD

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps for time of:
Power Snatch (115#/75#)
Overhead Squat (115#/75#)

16:28 @ 95#. Fun power snatching 95#, but my form was big time sloppy on both snatches and the OHS. OHS in particular were barely within the same time zone as below parallel. WOD was designed to be heavy, so that's how I selected my weight. Had I done it at 75#, form probably would have been much better.

When I'm away, I kind of forget how much fun Crossfitting is, so I'm glad to be back! Two travel days this week, and then that should be it for the next three weeks or so.
