Happy birthday, Diane! :D

Re: CrossFit at the Globo, the little gym in my office building just released an advertisement and among the other kinds of classes it offers is "CrossFit". I can't imagine it's more than once or twice a week. It's a very small gym with lunchtime group classes.

Happy Birthday!

I've been thinking about fun workout or active things to do when I turn 50 (besides officially posting in this thread :D). I like your workout idea, so I might steal that. I could also do things like, swim 50x50, cycle 50 miles. I guess the possibilities are endless. :)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Diane, happy birthday. There is a workout called "Filthy Fifty" around here somewhere. I like the idea of a special workout for your birth year. remember Jack LaLanne pulled some 72 boats on his 72nd B'day.

It is with fear and trepidation that I ask this group to design a "Dirty 65" for me. :o

Did a scaled "Elizabeth" today: 3 RFT: 21-15-9 of Cleans and Ring dips. I scaled the cleans to 65 lb to get improvement in form and depth etc. Finished in 11: 58.

The physical therapist has got me practicing getting my body down quickly. I imagine that I am pulling my knees to my chest---without having my feet leave the ground. It's helping. With 65 lbs, I can do the initial pull and let the bar sail on its own while I get under it. Grazed my chin and chest a few times.

Fran

W/U ROM stuff, hips, shoulders. Air squats to 20, 16 and 12" Plyobox.

21, 15, 9
65 lb thrusters to 14" Dynamax ball
Jumping pullups but lowered down as slow as I could (not very, but slower than just dropping).

10:23

Cool: Jump rope. Able to jump on the right leg again, FINALLY! Able to get a couple double unders. Without CF, I doubt I would have ever discovered the "cure" for this right leg/knee (and thanks Kelly Starrett). Ran 1.2 miles yesterday (blush) 19 minutes, 40 degrees. Slow and a little pain, but able to run again. Now it will just get better.

Happy Birthday to Dianne. :pepper:

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! My husband is taking me out tonight for a swanky dinner so I'm sure my 6AM workout tomorrow will involve a serious wine hangover.

Today - 10/13/09
11AM workout in the gym with Bill

WU: Stretching, run to the gym, row 500m, dumbbell swings

5 Rounds for time
Run 400 meters
30 box jumps, 24″ box
30 Wall ball shots (20#/14#)

I did stepups on a 20" box and I used a 10# ball for wallballs and mostly hit between 8' and 10'. Still working on getting the 10# ball to the 10' mark. My time was 33:30.

[B]Diane, Happy Birthday[/B]. Nice job on the birthday burpees.

Spent a couple of days this weekend working on cars. getting too cold to do that outside anymore this year.

Today
12 min on elliptical / 12 min run

3x10 knees to waist
3x20 sit ups. Last set was not easy at all.

3 sets 95x5 press
3 sets 135x5 back squat

Romanian Deadlifts
135x10
155x10

Seems like everything is coming back quickly. Could have lifted heavier, but patience, patience. Still ate running, but the AF says I have to do it.

[I]Not a good day, not feeling well. Had to keep stopping on the rower (stomachache). Last week w/no rest Sunday (5k), plus the birthday wod wrecked me. Don't know how some of you do 5 on all the time - with the tough wods you do. Just didn't seem like I recovered well all week[/I]!:p

It's been nearly two weeks. Sheesh! I was caught in a perfect storm of kid sickness and wife prepping for deployment leave...oh, and wine in a box. Anyway, I had an MRI w/ resolution on the knee and was told that I need to be more patient and stop squatting below parallel and with any weight higher than BW. Still not runnning at 21 weeks post op.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
John, good luck with the knee.

Today I was scheduled to do a Crossfit Total. However, keeping my promise to the P/T, I decided against an all out effort until all the body parts are in the right allignment. So I changed the work out to: 3 X 3 x lifts for BS, OHP, and DL.

BS 3X 3X 275
OHP 3 X 3 X 155
DL 3 X 3 X 335.

My practice prior to the main set was to do standing back curves. After a few dozen of these, then hang on a bar and do the movement. This is the first part of the kip swing which the P/T is teaching me. For some reason, I have always tried to initiate a kip by swinging back, not forward in the hang. A few months ago I was doing this swing thing and got a power rack to start tilting.:yikes:

Biked to gym. Had a bit of a BoW (Box-o-Wine) headache which was exacerbated by the heat and car exhaust. When I got to the gym the manager grabbed me and told me they (Ft Stewart MWR) just purchased a bunch of Crossfit equipment and were putting it in a raquetball court at another location...rings, bumper plates, k-bells, C2's, etc. Excellent news. They will open next week once they get the mats down. MTF re: same.
WU:
C2 @ 5.5 damper 500m 2:18. My goal is to break a 2:00 500m. I just can't seem to pull it off...I think my PR is somewhere around 2:07. What's the trick, [B]Diane[/B]? Besides, row faster, I mean.
5-5-7 DH pullups
5-5-10 dips
5-10-15 BW squats
5-5-5 each leg Bulgarian lunges

WOD: 5 rounds for time
#135 Hang Squat Clean 15 reps (scaled to #75 after first round)
30 pushups

22:33.8 The wheels came off after round three and I lost some time changing weights out after round one. Pretty smoked by the end. Biked home.

Daryll Krivanos 10-15-2009 04:37 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Greetings everyone, my name is Daryll and I've been "lurking" here for about a week or so. I'm 56 years old and have been crossfitting for about 6 weeks. Since I lost over 90lbs in 2005 I've pretty much been a cardio junkie. That is, until I started crossfitting. I've never been very active and I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to anything athletic.

It's been hard to reconcile my love for longer periods of cardio and crossfit. I'm still working on that. No doubt, at my age, crossfit DEMANDS recovery and rest.

From what I've read on this message board, I do share quite a bit with most everyone here (except for the awesome times & lack of major scaling) and I look forward to sharing encouragement and resolutions to the various aches and pains we "old folk" experience. i.e. I've been taking mega doses of fish oil per the last Dr. Sears lecture on battling inflammation. As a result I believe my truly screwed up right knee already is doing much better. I also need to know; Diane M., Exactly what kind of procedure did Kelly Starrett do to help?

While I'm very strong in the cardio end of fitness (I raced Sears Tower in 20:37 and place 114 of almost 2,000), I've got a long way to go to work on my physical strength. My first crossfit total was 395. I'm pretty sure I'll manage 500 on the next and be into 600 before the end of the year. A lot of my problem was lack of form & just plain fear on the BS & DL.

I'm lucky to be going to an affiliate with a great coach.

In any event, to get to the business at hand;

10/15/09 – “Crossfit” Rest Day
A.M.
W.U. 30 Push ups, 20 Squats, 5 Pull Ups
Daily Cardio:
20 minutes of speed bag,
10 minutes jump rope.
1 mile on treadmill (7:30)

Lunch. (I’m very fortunate to have a fitness center where I work)
Inspired by John W’s 7428 30 minute row yesterday:
30-minute row – 7245m (P.R. by 28m)
AWESOME row John!:notworth:

Charles Pyke 10-15-2009 05:23 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Daryll...Welcome. If you love cardio, you'll love metcon workouts.

Scott...Getting better times on the C2 is not necessarily a matter of going faster. I use method I learned from one of the CF C2 videos. It's a 3 count motion. 1 and 2 are consist of the pulling portion. My "1" is a long powerful push. At this stage I like to think in terms of doing a power clean. The idea is very similar. That is, you're pushing hard against the foot rests with the balls of your feet, just like the initial part of a power clean. Your arms are and hands are just for hanging on. The "2" is shorter with a smooth transition beginning with the arm pull (or there about). I try to continue, as much as possible, the momentum of the initial pull. If you watch the power graph on the display you can tell when your legs start running out of extension and the arms take over. Ideally, this curve should be smooth as possible. The "3" count is the same length as the "1" count and is the recovery back to the beginning of the stroke. If you rush this too much you will definitely run out of gas quicker. Contrary to most CF moves, let your back curve (as opposed to locked rigidly upright) until the finish of the stroke or you'll waste usable stroke length. Recurve your back again on the recovery. My max stroke rate on all out efforts, especially on short sprints is only about 25 - 27 strokes per minute. Higher stroke rate does not equate to better times. It's like spinning a bicycle tire with your hand. Can you spin it faster by lots of quick little jabs or steady measured pulls? Try it with your bike. Lastly, set the damper to 3.5 to 4 (C2 recommended). I keep mine on 4. Hope that wasn't to much a rehash. I started writing and got carried away.


Today
10 min elliptical/13 min running.

Tried some pull ups. Thinking that doing kipping PU's probably aren't a good idea yet, I did three regular. It's amazing how much work your abs do even on these. That kind of hurt a bit, so I stopped.

Deadlift
3 x 5 x 225
1 x 315

Push ups 3 x 10

Welcome Daryll, I think you will find your running times improve if you stick with CF, if you like that type of workout you should check out [url]www.crossfitendurance.com[/url] (WFS). Your strength will definately improve.

Hey Diane, Actually Kelley is a guy. You should check out his videos on the CF Journal, he is the founder of Crossfit San Francisco (WFS) [url]http://www.sanfranciscocrossfit.com/coaches.php[/url]

Welcome aboard Daryll. I'm relatively new here also. Been crossfitting for almost a year.

Yesterday's WOD a little unusual since it wasn't timed. Felt a little strange until we got to the last couple of cycles. Then it was just plain HARD.

Without letting go of the bar, or resting it on the ground complete 7 sets of the sequence for 1 round. Do 5 rounds increasing the load per round:

-Power Clean
-Front Squat
-Push Press
-Back Squat
-Push Press

65#, 95#, 105, 105, 105

Eased up a bit today.

Walked about a mile. Then 6 min on the elliptical with a load increase every minute.

Jump rope - 100 regular - 2 min walk - 100 alternating foot - 2 min walk and so on. Think I did 1000 jumps. Wasn't really paying attention.

Bench Press- barx5, 65x5, 95x3, 115x3, 135x3, 145x, 155x3, 165x3, 175x3

Then lots of stretching, especially my hamstrings.

Hurting today. Probably just need a 60 minute deep tissue massage and some tub therapy. Anyway...

WU:

10-10-10 Shoulder pass throughs
5-10-15 pullups
5-10-15 dips
5-10-15 BW squats
5-5-5 #45 OHS

WOD:
Supposed to have been 21-18-15-12-9-6-3 Hip Back Extensions with each set preceded by a 400m run. I however did:

20 Burpees in place of the run
GHD in place of the HBE
24:40.3....Not bad considering the 140 burpees nearly killed me.

Yesterday worked on front squat and the pull phase of the clean with coach Andy Tysz at the USOEC. Today ran 3+ mile loop by my house and cut off a little over 3 minutes. It feels so very good to run again. Next weekend it's Omaha to see Coach Rippatoe for Basic Barbell Cert. I should have CrossFit Marquette functional by the end of the month. Had rubber flooring put down today.
