Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hey All,
Just checking in. Been a while since I posted. Lot's of solid work going on.
Welcome to the new folks (Michelle, Cliff, and anyone else I missed)...not sure if it's should be belated or what, looks like they' have been online for a while, and I feel like a new comer. Glad to see a post from Steve.

I started posting my workouts on [URL=""]beyond the whiteboard[/URL], again. WFS

Competed last month in [URL=""]Level 10 Strength Challenge[/URL]...WFS...I was the only over 50 guy competing, there were a couple 40+ year olds. I placed 32 out of 38...4 WODs in one day really takes it out of you...I was actually glad to not make the final cut for the last WOD.

I started up Wendler 5/3/1 again (never finished it the first time), but haven't missed a day yet. I signed up for a power lifting competition in Jan so trying to get me numbers up.

Talk to you all later.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Guys - thanks for the kind words. My son has bipolar disorder & we're going to have a lot of work to do. What can I say, when it rains, it pours.

Deb- We just got a couple of 2 Pood Kettle bells in the box. They scare me! That's awesome that you're working with them!

John - Hope your back is better. Done my share of back injuries this year! I feel your pain!

400m run
2 box lengths
high knees
Butt kickers
Frankenstein walks
skip for height
skip for distance
broad jump
inch worms (5 push ups)
10 push up/ arm raises



[/B]4 RFT
100ft walking lunges with 45# held over head
30 24" box jumps
20 20# Wall Ball shots
10 Hand Stand Push ups


[I]Hero WOD's suck! ;) Doing the box jumps after the lunges were awful! I was still breathing heavy during the 1st 15 reps of box jumps![/I] [I]Had to brea[/I][I]k[/I][I] them down into 3 rep chunks! The 1st round took me 9 minutes, so I felt good about the time!

Oh, nuts! Still have to get the Burpees (Yay! Burpees!) done!!:ranting2:;)[/I]

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;879916]oh yeah,[B] Jim[/B]
I swung the guys 70# kb today - hysterical!! American swings, 2-3x - when that thing's coming down, it's [B]COMING DOWN!!![/B] Almost pulled me into an involuntary forward roll!! :rofl::rofl::rofl:[/QUOTE]

Yeah, the 70# KB is a naughty boy. However, I felt sorry for him sitting alone in the garage for so long, so was glad to take him out again for Whitten. It can get really interesting doing heavy swings during hot summer days when my hands get sweaty.

William, sorry to hear the news. I can tell that you are not someone to shy away from hard work and I know that you will prevail. Crossfit will definitely help carry you through some tougher times. A fit body makes for a stronger mind.

John, hope your back feels better, those portable hoops are really heavy.

Terry, keep up the good work.

[B][U]December 15[/U][/B]
Another long work day and another missed WOD.

[B][U]December 16[/U][/B]
5 minutes of jump rope drills
3 circuits: 3 strict pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, 15 squats
10 minutes of dynamic stretching and mobility work
Deadlift: 135#x10, 185#x5, 230#x5, 170#x5, 305#x7
Shoulder press: 45#x10, 105#x5, 125#x5, 140#x6

Think I'll do some cardio tomorrow, maybe a swim WOD and skiing leg WOD. Work load should lighten up a bit now.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[B][U]December 17[/U][/B]
[U]Swim Workout[/U]
1 x400 yds warm-up (untimed)
2x200 yds @ ~3:35-36 pace
4x100 yds @ ~ 1:40-41 pace
6 x 50 yds @ ~ 0:45-46 pace

First swim workout in a few months and the absence made its presence known today. The last time I did this WOD, my 100s were in the mid- to high- 1:30s. I'll try to do this 3x/week over the winter. Christmas shopping took precedence over WOD #2 today (the ski leg workout).

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hear you on the sweaty hands Jim. Geez!!

[B]12.17.2010-Friday-Day 5[/B]

Warmup: Row 500, lunge, squat, et al shoulder mobility & stretch

[B][U]Strength: Deadlift[/U][/B]
3x235 ([B]10 [/B]- I was pretty happy about that)

4 rounds for time of:
25 ring dips
25 toes to bar
400 meter run
[B]30:41? [/B]I think. Something like that. I was happy with that, comparable to the other girls plus, I asked tonite about the dips ROM (I been getting a little discouraged), and my coach told me only he and one other guy did full ROM dips. I used a skinny band, full ROM, no kip takes me forever. I also noticed that my one arm is weaker, the elbow goes out during them (this is the shoulder I had surgery on). So, a lot to work on. Managed the Toes to Bar slow but ok....not too bad on the shoulders, I upped my fat and seem to be less sore wondering if they're related.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Jim - Thanks. The one thing that helped this week was getting back in the box! Burpees (Yay! Burpees!) were good (can't believe I said that!:yikes:) but they weren't the same thing. The good hews is that we've got my son home & we have meds & therapy to help him.

BTW, Love the swimming WOD. Have you checked out some of the swimming stuff on the Journal site? Good Stuff!

300m run
2 rounds
side steps & sprints
Butt kickers & high knees

10 air squats
10 push ups
10 sit ups

400m run
225# dead lifts, 5 reps
in 12 min

3 rounds and 50m

[I]My running was hell but I kept at it. Getting used to 225# though cranking them out one after another is something I need to work on! I was tempted to add another 20# but had "an attack of sanity"[/I]!:rofl:

1 min Burpee (Yay! Burpees!) Challenge. (As many Burpee (Yay! Burpees!) you can do in a minute.)


[I]Felt good about that since in Sept., I was only able to do 19 in 90 seconds! Must be doing something right.

[/I](BTW finished the remaining 30 for today's quota tonight!)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
took most of this week off. Fatique and some inflammation in one arm, wrist, and thumb. Ice, heat, massage, stretch. Got my belt and singlet in the mail the other day. Spent this day getting caught up on the Wendler for BP, DL, and OHP. This was "deload week". Tried the new belt. This is going to take some getting used to.


OHP: 5X75,90,110


"Karen" 150 Wall Ball,20#. Finished in 6:50. PR:pepper::pepper::pepper:
