Pool intervals.

after 400 y. warm up. 4X 2X50 sprint w. 15 sec. recovery in between repeat. 50 yard active recovery in between sets.

This leaves me winded after the first 50 and then after 15 sec. another 50. Been doing this for a week and a half. recovery after the 4th set was better and will add a fifth soon. Whole workout takes 30-35 minutes. This is done three times per week on off days from the Wendler sets at the gym.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Pat, there's nothing quite like pool intervals is there?

Friday August 8, 2014

lots of stretching, my back is 99% of the way back in.

Held a goblet squat holding a 25# weight for 5:42.
This really hurt.

Did 10 OHS empty handed with my toes 2" from the wall.
Did 10 OHS with a 45# bar.
Did 10 front squats with a 45# bar.

Held an OHS with a 45# bar for 1:07.
This may have been the most painful thing I have ever done in athletics.

Held an OHS with a 45# bar for 1:08.
This was worse.

Rowed 500m in 2:22
Rowed 500m in 1:41

100 single unders
20 alternating single unders double unders

42 consecutive double unders (then I sat down for a long time while the room spun)

Bill, save your skin!
JT, I am really happy to be back in the water regularly. As a former life guard and swim instructor, I am surprised that I have been out of the water for so long.

Strength day:

Warm up on bike and rower. Stretching, squat holds, etc.

Deadlifts: 10 X 135, 225
5 X 315
3 X 405
1X 455.

3X10 TTB.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Pat, it's an excellent complement to the high impact of CrossFit and lifting.

Saturday August 9, 2014

Back is feeling nearly 100%.

Walked 1 mile.

Oly Practice at Rubber City Weightlifting
Squat snatches to 70kg, missed twice at 75kg.
Squat clean and jerk to 100kg.
Missed at 105kg.

So that's a total of 170kg. Need 182kg to qualify for next year's pan ams at my current weight. Need 205 to qualify for next year's Worlds at my current weight. Am going to continue on with the experiment of switching to squat snatch from split snatch and of switching to squat clean from power clean. I will continue the experiment until at least the American Master's on November 1st in Savannah Georgia. Will also continue to work towards getting into a lower weight class. The next class down is 105kg (231 pounds). There's still a significant way to go to get there...

Deadlifts (185/135)
Toes to bar
