Play it Again Sports sells the Kbs for about $0.89 / pound, as I remember.


Great work on the DT WOD. Props on the unbroken DLs.


Nice work with Helen.

Keep up the great work, guys!

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

Here’s the cheapest I can find the Yukon GHD (WFS)

see the first listing on that web page.

From what I’ve read about the Yukon, the cushions pull loose almost right away and after some use, the welds start to crack near at the base of the upright.

I’ll check out the nearest Play It Again Sports for the KB’s.

Can’t believe you did "DT" at the RX’d 155lbs…incredible performance. Having to pick the bar back up again does suck. I think the idea was to transition from the last DL hang to the first HPC and thence from the last HPC to the first PJ. Doesn’t work out that way, though, for us mere mortals. I got to do lots of extra work either resetting the HPC’s from the floor and/or power cleaning the bar to restart the PJ’s.

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Hi, all! thanks so much for the many kind welcomes! Like I said, I won't always have time to post, and I'm so far behind on this thread ~~~ I did read through (WOW! you guys!) but not going to try to post as I am signing off to go WO. =)

Catch up on me...

Easter, rest day
Monday, Hanging power cleans - lots. Wish I had seen the D.T. WOD first, will save it for another day. Finally got comfortable AND did 75# (TPR).

Tuesday, walking 5k - no running for me that day.
Wednesday, rest day

Today I get to go test out my re-vamped homemade rope pull-up *bar* on yesterday's WOD and will let you know how it goes. Then I'm going to make the little Jack Russell Terrier puppy do his 5k ('course I'll tag along).

Great thread, you guys do great work. Thanks again for the kind welcomes and I will post more, you betcha.

Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
24 inch Box Jump, 30 reps
115 pound Push Press, 20 reps
30 Pull-ups

[B]WU:[/B] 1000m easy row; 3x[Sampson Stretch, 10 overhead squats w/ weighted PVC (h-PVC); 10 Ab Mat sit ups; 5 pull ups w/ heavy band assist; 5 push press w/ increasing wt each rnd (PVC, h-PVC, bar)]

[B]Score:[/B] 2 Rounds, 30 box jumps, 8 push presses.

1. Box jumps - Built 24” temp platform w/ lumber and bumper plates.
2. 24” is a pretty high jump.
3. 20 push presses w/ 115 lbs is a lot more difficult than it sounds.
4. Pull ups completed w/ med Iron Woody band.

Checked on closest Play It Again Sports for the kettlebells. About 70 miles away.

[B]Final Note:[/B] Both Danny and DT died way to young.

Charlie, We got our k bells from Ader and pretty cheap if I recall. I'll ask the wife where exactly she got them. I also found some on craigslist that were extra cheap.

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Looks like the best deal I can find on a KB is from the Garage Gym Store. (WFS)


The price goes down to $63.95 when you add to cart (less shipping).

May have to just save my pennies for the GHD.

Interested in this (WFS): [URL=""][/URL]

Also considering bidding on this, but it is a 4 hr drive to the other side of the state (WFS): [URL=""][/URL]
