Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hey Everyone,

Really not doing well with keeping up on all the great work going on - - but......on the good side, things will hopefully be a little less hectic from hereon out. I have a job!!!! Going to work at Starbucks starting the 31st, so I need to get used to working out at "O-Dark Thirty."

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and/or prayers!


[/B]Sorry to hear about Gina's friend's husband. 61 is definitely too young; hope he did not suffer greatly.


[/B]Don't be disappointed. That's a good time. BTW, you did Michael [I][B]after [/B][/I]doing the burpees? Geez, girl......


[/B]You are a [B]Beastess! [/B]Awesome work for even attempting that DL ladder - - flat awesome! Charlie is right with his comment!

[B]Tom R.,

[/B]Thanks, Tom. Sleep is coming well now - - Nice work on your WOD! If you don't mind my asking, what "issues" make it difficult for you with your front squats or push presses?

[B]John B.,

[/B]Nice nasty little BW AMRAP WOD you did - - 6 rounds - - awesome!

[B]John Scott,

[/B]Great job on the WOD - - glad the knee is doing well! Our globo's pull-up bars are also attached to cable crossover machines, but at least they are regular small diameter (1") pull-up bars. I hate those angled things. What kinda ride is the "Blue Bomberoo?"


[/B]Thank you, R.e., the DLs. I think I need to slightly lessen the number of warm-up reps, give myself a little more time between attempts, and do heavy DLs on days when I'm really well-rested. I'd love to get to the point where I really recruit the CNS pathways and in turn, can recruit more muscle fibers for the hard pulls....Have fun with "Karen." She's my ticket to DOMS.......putting off doing that one!

[B]Diane M.,

[/B]Have a blast at the park tomorrow! CrossFit "outta the box" is fun, for sure! Good luck on the golf game. How can anyone find chasing a little white ball all over creation and trying to knock it into little holes in the ground relaxing? :stir:

[B]Diane D.,

[/B]Yup, I'd say you were exhausted at the end of everything you did just by looking at the log entry ---- YIKES! :yikes:. Great work!

[B]Mark and Jay,

[/B]Kudos to both of you on the great Push Press work!

Jay, it depends on your preferences and/or abilities as to whether you want to clean the weight from the floor and then do the press work, or if you use a rack. I like to use the rack, simply because I can handle more weight with a PP than I can clean right now - - I just don't have the technique.

[B]Take care all, and have a great weekend![/B]

[quote=Tom Girouard;649312]Deb, good work with the Burpee Challenge. I'm impressed that you made up yesterday's balance today. Strong will. BTW, Burpees suck!

Steve, I'm jealous of those pullups. 19 is something to be proud of. I cannot/do not kip so usually don't do more than 10 or 12 (dead hangs with a little english) in a row.

Definitely tweeked something in the collarbone region doing push presses on Tues. The last one was ugly at 195# and I'm paying the price. Also rolled my ankle on Tuesday coming down "Big Bertha". What a mess.

Thursday squatted after a good warm up. 5x5 with 225#. Actually did 5,5,5,3 (WTF) and than finished with 8 x 135#.

Friday still feeling it in the collar bone area and after the squats in the hammies, glutes and quads, so went to the stairs at lunch. Knocked out 18.[/quote]

Great work on the squats and PPs - - 195# is something to write home about - - awesome! Sorry to hear about your ankle - - I've rolled both of mine more times than I can remember - - glad they are still attached to my legs......great job to go knock out 18 stair runs AFTER doing all that squatting!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Alas, the work day went too long. It's now after 8 PM, so no workout today. The worst part is that I actually tried to figure out if I could do "Karen" and the Lunge/pull-up/sit-up WOD tomorrow. Not a good idea. I'll just pick up with the next WOD. Rats!

[B]Wednedsday 090821[/B]

For time:
150 Wallball shots, 20 pound ball

7:59 (PR)
My last time was 9:08 which use to be our gym record until it was broken (8:59) by a 20 something yr old in the morning class. So I had to go all out did 60 in the first two minutes, thought I was out of gas..but after 10 seconds I did them in sets of 15 with a 5 second rest in between. I can't count my time as a record anymore since becoming owner/trainer..we reserve that for our members...besides I am sure Nick will smoke my time.

Me and my wife did this WOD together before the class got to the gym. Was our 22nd year anniversary. We went home and celebrated with a nice dinner, BBQ filet, steamed broccoli, nice salad and a bottle of Silver Oak that was nice.

her time was 10:58 with a 10lb ball.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[B]94 Burpees[/B]

[B]Warmup:[/B] Burpees, Pushups, K2E, Pullups

[B]Ascending/Descending Ladder[/B]
deadlift 185# (135#), 1-12 reps
box jump, 12-1 reps

135#, 10:26
I liked this one.

Someone came into the gym during the 10th round, I lost focus & picked up my training partners cue, so I lost count, and time standing around wondering where I really was! 9:26 was on the board when I finished, but I figured I missed a round so did another 12+box jump... good minute extra.

I HATE when that happens.... it makes me feel old, and like Ingrid Bergman in "Gaslight"! :p

[B]Terry[/B] - Maybe you can't count your time as a gym record, but WE can!! Way to go! :super:

I have a 175 BP PR I did about 15 years ago. Does that still count?
How about the 154 bowling record I did about 50 years ago? Maybe I should work on over 60 records.
