[QUOTE=Greg Major;774474]Jeff,

There was an update. We do wods 1 & 2 Friday and #3 on Sat.[/QUOTE]

Good, much better. Thanks.

We were talking about the game's site at the box on Saturday. What a mess it is. Can't find a thing.

You guys look like you'll be fearsome competition at the Master's Games; I'll be keeping an eye on things from afar.

4/26 WOD

15 Presses (95#/65#)
45 Box Jumps (24")
30 Push Press
30 Box Jumps
45 Jerks
15 Box Jumps

13:29 @ 85#. Tried 95# but could not press more than four straight, so went to 85#. My sets of all presses never fell below five, so I think I picked a good weight. Forty-five push jerks is a LOT of push jerks.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
I tend to do the WOD from 1 week ago because I am working out independently and it helps me to see what other folks have done. So todays WOD for me was:

3 rounds for time of:
Walking lunge, 100 ft
50 Squats
25 Back extensions

I did 200 feet the first round (100 steps).

11:50

Training schedules. Some folks were talking about that a few replies ago...I used to do 3 on 1 off and would sustain that until I felt weariness building then take a week or so off. The last time I did that I felt pretty good for a long time then when I took time off I really needed to rest...slept tons and lounged about for maybe 2-3 weeks and I was not as motivated as I usually am. SO....I think that this is an over 50 thing to modify my training schedule. I generally try to do the WODS as rx'd but I have randomized my training schedule more. I follow the WOD timing of 3 days on 1 off but on the weekends I just don't do the WODS...at least not usually. Instead I do other things. Like hiking or light running or something specific (I have been doing lots of handstand push ups or sprints) or I practice martial arts et cet. OR I sleep! The point is that I have built a kind of irregularity into my resting. Some weeks I do 4 WODS plus weekend stuff and other weeks I just do 3. Sometimes they are bunched up and sometimes they are spread out. Then just for fun I will switch up and do a full 3 on 1 off schedule. I am finding that this sort of irregularity is actually really good for me. I seem to be able to maintain it and not need long periods of laying off. But I still get periods of intensity where I am pushing more. With this type of schedule my metrics are generally improving.

Comments?

Welcome aboard Mike and William.

Did a modified version of the following yesterday.

Monday 100426

For time:
50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
10 Muscle-ups
40 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
8 Muscle-ups
30 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
6 Muscle-ups
20 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
4 Muscle-ups
10 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
2 Muscle-ups

The shots were against the pillars of power cage (couldn't find a wall w/o a miirror)---8-9 ft high. 20# ball was this rubberized thing w. handles. Muscle ups were from kneeing position w. rings just above chest level.

Finished in 16:20. This was one very noisy workout. The more I banged the cage with the ball, the more plates fell to the floor.

Jim Cordes 04-27-2010 10:52 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
4/27 WOD

800 M Run
21 Squat Cleans (135#/95#)
800 M Run
15 Squat Cleans
800 M Run
9 Squat Cleans

21:05 @ 105#. Picked the weight I used on Grace. Squat cleans are feeling very efficient: I'm shrugging bar up enough to slide in below it, concentrating on swinging elbows around quickly and dropping to squat quickly. I've had my eye on beating my clean PR, which is currently 155#, and think with my better technique lately that mark will fall soon.

Nice big class, 12 of us. Props to Brian for running an extra 400 after his set of 9 squat clean: if in doubt, move!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
[B]John, [/B] Thanks very much.


[B]Mike, [/B] To reply to your training remarks. I'm not an expert but I think you have to do what works for you. I travel for work at uncertain intervals. In addition, I help coach my daughters softball and help ferry the the kids to/from choir, swim practice, soccer etc. My affiliate is 30 minutes away so sometimes I work out at a nearby park district center. So you can see there are alot of mitigating factors that effect my schedule. I still try and do a 3-1-2-1 schedule. Sometimes its a 2-2-3 or 1-1-1-1-2-1, you get the picture. However, I rarely go for a long spurt without working out. I try and follow the WODS at my affiliate (CFSB) and for a while I was tracking Opt's program [URL="http://optimumperformancetraining.blogspot.com/"]http://optimumperformancetraining.blogspot.com/[/URL] (WFS) to prepare for the games. Do you go to an affiliate? If not pick one and follow them on their own site or through their blog or facebook. I also log my workouts on beyondthewhiteboard. You can follow an affiliate that way also.

I don't know how you guys can front squat so much weight!! I have trouble keeping the bar racked & staying upright....

[B]Good luck in the Masters Jeff & everyone else! GO GET IT![/B]

On another note as much as everyone posts about getting double unders - this week I had a jumprope WOD that REALLY tripped me up...
[B]I spent about 5 minutes trying to relearn SINGLE unders[/B].:rofl: One of the few things I can do with my current shoulder impingement issues, took the longest time. Fun WOD though (weights were a little low, they're trying to get us to scale UP).

3 rounds for time of:
50 singles (jump rope)
40 double unders (Sub for double unders is 40 bar hops)
30 push press - 75# (45#)
20 box jumps - 24" (20")
10 pull-ups

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
4/29 WOD

1 Set of Max Handstand Pushups
3 Minutes Rest
In 8 Minutes complete the following:
500 M Row
50 Double Unders
Max Pull ups
(Your score for the workout is the number of pull ups completed)

11 handstand push-ups to depth of one Abmat.
60 pull-ups (substituted 150 single-unders for 50 double-unders)

I want this to be primarily a pull-up workout, so I substituted 150 single-unders for the 50 doubles-unders, because I feared I would lose too much time on double-unders. I took it easy on my row, taking about two minutes, and my 150 single-unders (with transition between row and jump rope) took another minute, leaving me about five minutes for the pull-ups. My first set was 12, then I did with sets of five to three, stopping when the pull-ups became barely legit, ending at 60 in the five minutes. This was actually one of the easier crossfit workouts I've ever done. I suspect if I did double-unders instead of the single-unders, they would have taken more time and decreased my pull-ups, but increased my total work.

Pleased with the handstand push-ups. I've never done them before, and decided to do them with one Abmat, meaning my head came no closer than 2 inches from the floor. I was very pleased with the result, but will go head-to-floor from now on.

Today we celebrated. Evan, who is 18, and a firebreather, is leaving for the summer. He and I did Linda. He kicked my butt. My butt needed kicking! I am going to miss this kid. The good news, he gets his Level 1 in two weeks, there is a CF gym in his hometown so when he returns this fall I will have a new trainer. You da man Evan.

Thank you, Bill! I sure appreciate the advice. I have suffered at least four tears total, all minor, since I started CF. I think my weak posterior chain is probably mainly to blame, but I'm working on it....

BTW, you sure did a "kick butt" job on your WOD today! Fantastic!

Was thinking of doing the site WOD, we were doing Fight Gone Bad & I got scared!

Warm up:

2X 10

squats
situps
pushups
pullups

WOD:
Fight Gone Bad Rx'd

in the afternoon sun
at 80+ degrees
it was bad
Much worse than when I did the scaled version in January
I started puking water :puke0000: during the 1st set of the 3rd round (20# wall ball shots)
BUT I made it through! And THAT is what matters!
