Back from vacation, did a couple drop ins. I gotta say, among the many awesome things about being a Crossfitter is being able to drop into Crossfit boxes around the country and instantly having a bond with a bunch of good people.

Looks like a lot of good work being done here while I was gone.

10/18 WOD
CrossFit Discovery, Charleston, SC

A. Weighted Pullup 3, 3, 3, 3, 3
0- Heavy chain-heavy chain-heavy chain and light chain-heavy chain
Weighted pull ups with chains is just too cool.

B. 10 Ground to Overhead (95/65)
10 Shoulder to Overhead
Sprint 100m
20 G to O
20 S to O
Sprint
30 G to O
30 S to O
Sprint
40 G to O
40 S to O
Sprint
15 min. Time Cap
103 reps (13 S to O in round of 30)

Power snatches and push jerks. Unbelievable how much I sweat, even at 6 a.m., in the humidity! Very nice people here, great drop in experience.


10/21 WOD
CrossFit Discovery, Charleston, SC

A. Strict Press 3 emom for 10 min @60%
75#

B. 5 Rounds for Time
11 Burpees
11 Pullups
20m Walking Lunge
10:41


10/22 WOD
CrossFit Hilton Head

Split Jerk. 15 minutes to a heavy single.
175# (ties long-standing PR!)
Worked on spreading feet farther apart and bending back knee more.

5 rounds for reps of:
Max pullups in :30/rest :30
Max double unders in :30/rest :30.
Record total pullups and total double unders to board.

Pull ups: 55
Double unders: 206
Felt a callus tear coming on so backed off pull ups a little. D/u's went very well.


And then back home.
10/26 WOD
"My Pet Rock"

As a team of two, AMRAP 20:
200M run
50 double unders
25 knees to elbow
10 Goblet squat.
A "pet rock" must be held the entire time, including the run.

5 rounds plus 200M run plus 13 double unders with a 1 pood kettlebell as "pet rock."

Great work JT! Omg... Even better wipeout! See kettlebells are dangerous:D


Don't know if it's that I'm beat from working a 60 hr week or this was the hardest WOD in the world...killer ( oh, and genius that I am, I did 5 rounds instead of four...no wonder it seemed so hard)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
10/28 WOD

A. Snatch Grip Romanian Deadlift, 30X1, 4-5 reps, 5 sets, rest 2-3min
135-135-155-155-155
Grip was the bottleneck here. I ended up using *Gasp!* wrist wraps on the final two sets and they made all the difference. Probably could have gone even heavier with the wraps.

B. EMOTM, 6:00, 3-5 Push Press
115x5
Perfect weight, last couple reps on last couple sets were hard. I really tried to make these push presses and not push jerks, so no redipping. Pleased with that.

+
5 rounds of:
10 Burpee Box Jumps (24/20) - step down
200m Run
90 sec rest
15:33
First set was 2:00, then I think each set got a little quicker.

was happy to survive weekend and be back at work. thursday day off from gym, friday...gym, curling having a friend from 10th grade visit for the weekend, saturday gym, travel to sunshine coast, drink way to many beers, sunday long hike into skumchuck narrows, drive to ferry and drop said friend off in downtown vancouver.....all in all a good weekend....lots of laughs and reconecting with the past....to much driving however....

last nite at the box

800m sled pull 70lb w/10lb per side ankle weights

then 3 rounds 3 minutes on 3 off

5 20" box jump
10 air squats
15 sit ups

99-114-120

then

3 x 8 single arm rear delt raise 5 lbs

100 per side lying delt raise 3 lbs.

got confirmation that we are proceeding with as a fundraiser for comunity christmas care the 1,000,000 lb squat challenge

another chap from the gym and myself are tossing it out to the community to show up december 14th and do air squats with us till we hit the 1,000,000 lb body wt. mark. at 160 lbs it is only 6,250 so we think it is a doable number depending on how much of the comunity decides to show up

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Wednesday October 30, 2013

Tough group warmup:
dumbell thrusters, alligator crawl with dumbells, air squats

Short Metcon
5 minute AMRAP
step up onto 12" box with 45# bar in front rack, 3 times each leg
do 8 back squats with 45# bar,
do 10 jumps onto 12" box.

Clean and Jerk practice

Thursday and Friday will be physical rest days while I prepare my mind to be an agressive, slobbering, animal who rips incredible amounts of weight off the floor and throws them overhead on saturday (hopefully while maintaining some semblance of decent form). It won't be pretty, and people who haven't seen me in competitive beast mode won't recognize me. Don't say hi, b/c I'll only snarl at you.

Will report in on Sunday after the comp (assuming I'm not mistakenly caged as a feral pit bull with rabies)

Hey JT, while I remember, good luck at your meet this weekend, lookin' good! This weekend is also American Masters in Savannah. Masters Nationals 2014 in Shreveport entry form is up.... [url]www.mastersweightlifting.org[/url]. wfs

JT....good luck in your comp. deep breath and you will do just fine....and remember to treat the inner pit bull in you to a nice T-Bone steak sunday....

last nite was costume nite at the gym while doing the filty fifty (with the usual mods for my issues of course :) ).....very important lesson when wearing a costume to the gym....make sure it is workout friendly...

i went as a "person of walmart" and the box jumps, toes to wall and walking lunges were not near as much fun as they usually are when you are wearing rubber work boots

time 18:28 with partner allowing for us screwing up the order of the movements as well

A. Backsquat, 31X1, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, rest 2-3min
135-155-185-205-225f
Good depth and accurate pacing on all reps. The 1-sec hold at the bottom was a killer! Was on my way up slowly but drifting to right on last rep when my spotter grabbed the bar, so technically a fail rep but I think it would have been good.

+
AMRAP 7:00
7 BB Clean & Jerks (135/95)
7 T2B
7 H.R. Pushups
2 rounds + 7 C&J’s + 4 T2B’s.
Crap, the C&J’s were tough! Technique not great, so I ended up doing a lot more pressing with my arms than I should have. Felt I was lagging, but...

Rest 5:00

Results of AMRAP for time
7:55.
The C&J’s didn’t get any easier this time. Taking an extra moment before each rep to set up and think about proper technique on the jerk would have been good. Note to self for Grace finals.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Saturday November 2nd, 2013

160k total, hit 5 out of 6 lifts, no-repped on final snatch...

All week time seemed to be moving slowly, with way too much time to think. Visualizing the lifts, and practicing quotes (e.g., "I won," "I qualified for nationals") helped. A final sleepless night followed a few "rest days" before the first USAW-sanctioned meet. Rising at oh-dark-thirty to fuel and hydrate and drive to the venue was no problem, b/c I was already awake, mentally pacing the cage with days of pent-up energy, and months of repressed anticipation.

Weigh-ins were held two hours before the first lifting. The first of those two hours seemed like it took a dozen as I moved slowly but methodically through complete mobility and stretching. After announcing my opening lift weights there were too many chances to second-guess strategy, to let the doubts start filtering in.

But then time started to accelerate as the lifting and warming up began. And then the warming up was quickly building in intensity. I hit my opening weight in warmup, and then some, and then before I knew it I was on deck, where my name was announced and the 1 minute shot clock started ticking. After a few steps pacing back and forth like a caged tiger, the prison door was finally kicked open, and the bar was laid bare before me.

it was time to grip it, and to find out. This is where training and practice and routine kick in. This is where random sounds and shouts of encouragement fade and blend and blur behind the pounding of the blood in your ears. In an instant the opening weight (a meager 50k) was overhead, locked out, and three "good lift" flags were in the air. I had done it. I was back in the arena, competing, not knowing how it would go, and loving every dread-filled second.

The second snatch also flew overhead (60k). The third snatch felt light, but I pressed it out with my left arm b/c I didn't drop far enough under it. No-rep at 75k, when I was lifting well enough to have hit 80k or maybe 85. So there is plenty to learn, plenty of coaching to absorb, plenty of drills to repeat ad nauseum, and there will be a next time. I simply have to learn to snatch better.

After a break, the C&J session started, and it was time to warm up again. I knew I was going to kill the C&J, just knew it. In warmups everything felt light. All week, the cleans had been good. I considered changing the announced first lift weight, but decided to stay with the game plan, to hit a lift, in front of the crowd, in front of the judges, in front of that annoying conscience and its nemesis pride. The first lift was trivial (75k). The second felt just as easy (90k). A few people gasped as the 52 year old man with the artificial hip who'd missed a 75k split snatch announced 100K in a clear strong voice.

Several other competitors had to go at 90 and 95k, some making, many leaving the competition before 100k was reached. Then it was time. One minute on the clock, months of training in the rearview, one bar waiting on the platform, one last lift in this first comp. A deep breath, a violent pull, and the bar materialized on my chest. Another breath, tighten the butt, tighten the abs, dip, drive, and DROP under it in a deep split. Locked out, standing up, friends and family going crazy as three "good lift" flags shoot up. I drop the bar and dance like a madman around the arena, tired, psyched, wishing I'd said 110k, catching the satisfied smiles of mentors and coaches and friends who'd believed that this could happen.

160k total, good enough to go to nationals in April, first place in my age and weight category, 7th overall, and totally *#(*ing awesome. It's good to be back in the game. Need to get 182k to qualify for the pan am games. The missed snatch would have got me to 175k total, and I felt like I could have done 110 C&J, but maybe that's just the adrenalin and pride (hubris) talking.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement, and for letting me believe that maybe, just maybe, an old athlete can push the sun back up in the sky for one more day, for one more try, for one more memory to be able to look back on fondly. And congratulations, along with your medal, you've won 5 hard month in the gym to prepare for April, for Shreveport, for a date with destiny after a voyage of re-discovery.

Video of the final C&J will be posted after a while.

Awesome performance JT. Notice how hard it is to keep the energy up while you wait between lifts! I do best on hot days here in AZ and the a/c is kept off. Just maintains a light sweat.

Sunday November 3rd, 2013

Some mobility work.

Some light TGUs.

Some easy GHDs.

100 straight arm head back pop the hip KB movements (some ended up as snatches, some as cleans, some as swinging no-name experiments). Trying to figure out how to do the snatch without bending my arms.

Some 45# and 65# snatches where I kept my arms as straight as possible.

Got a GREAT cue from my SoP training partner.

Deb Weber 11-03-2013 11:39 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
congrats JT, on totalling! 5 for six is excellent :pepper:
if you dont mind, what's the cue??

(my coach would NEVER let me do kb swings, he said it'd cause me to bump the bar AWAY. OTOH Ive seen a lot of people use them, successfully.
He believed in liftoffs to just above the knee, sometimes with a pause there (and I did zillions of them); that might help you some, your arms seem to bend halfway to the knee. good luck!

Great report JT and great job!

11/2 Saturday WOD
AMRAP 5:00
8 Wall balls
8 Sit ups
Rest 2:00

AMRAP 5:00
8 Burpees
20 V-twists (unweighted)
Rest 2:00

AMRAP 5:00
8 Goblet squats (1.5 pood kettlebell)
8 K2E’s
Rest 2:00

AMRAP 5:00
30 sec. hollow hold
30 sec. plank hold on elbows

Didn’t count reps but it was a lot of work.


11/3 workout @ Bacara
A. Bring Sally Up
Used 60#, nowhere near complete.
Kind of a dumb workout, I ended up leaning forward and pushing from my toes. As a result, lower back tight and a likely sweet case of DOMS on the way for my quads.

B. Max doubleunders in 2 minutes.
123.
Started off good but Bring Sally Up messed me up too much.

A good example of SSP (stupid self-programming).


11/4 WOD
A1. Bench Press, 30X1, 7-9 reps, 5 sets, rest 60sec
95-115-135(f, 6 only)-125

A2. Single Arm Dumbell Row, 31X1, 4-5 reps/arm, 5 sets, rest :30 b/t arms, rest 60sec
45-55-55-55
Went only 4 rounds instead of 5. Time running short and I was getting pretty tired.

+
4 rounds of:
21 Wall Balls
14 Burpees
7 CTB Pullups
rest 2:00
15:12

First set a little over 2:00 then progressively slower. Wall balls went surprising well; not perfect, but good. Burpees were a total mess because of the bench presses, basically fall to the floor, pick myself up, and hop. C2B’s also good. Used a huge kip and contacted chest to bar on over 50% of the reps, which is much better than usual.

This is 4th WOD in a row and I am feeling it. Thinking about going for 5 and a “mini hell week” but we’ll see how the rest of the day and night goes.

Group warmup

2me strict pullups followed immediately by 1 minute me dubs
(4,23) (5, 44 in a row, then I puked)

6 minutes, EMOM
2 hang squat cleans (75# really focussed on hurling it up with my whole body, not with my arms), 4 pushups on the bar

21-15-9
back squats to an 18" box, 75#
kbs, 30#
8:15

This was well below RX, but all I had in the tank today....

The cue was trying to jump as high as I could while holding a single small kettlebell in one hand with a straight arm. It proved that I can actually accelerate a weight with a straight arm. Then the cue involved finding different ways to accelerate the 10# kb with a straight arm. Just trying to feel the transfer of power generated one place through a straight arm to a weight at the end of the arm.

Nice! and thanks for clarifying. I have problems keeping tension out of my arms, I dont bend mine, but they're not loose enough, cause a loop in my bar. WLing, probably keep me busy till we drop! (That happens too sometimes, Ill overpull a clean back and wind up seated with the bar neatly racked. awkward!)

Funny..... It's the days that you are convinced that " no way I can do this WOD , I should stay home!" But you go anyway and say " no f...ing around, I'm doing this even I take two hours"

Those are the days that you actually dig deep and destroy the WOD!!!

Yep, it's a mental game.... I ate this one up and spit it out ."..crying for momma

11/6 WOD
A. 10:00 Skill Session: Handstand Work
These are getting better and better!

+
AMRAP 7:00
7 Squat Clean & Jerk (135/95)
7 Toes-to-bar
2 rounds + 7 C&J's + 4 T2B's.

Ugh, this was unpleasant. Came in at 12:30 since I was in Santa Maria in the morning. Didn't feel it beforehand, only a couple bites of a protein bar about 20 minutes before the WOD. The good news is that the squat cleans seem to be coming along well form-wise.

Thanks Cliff.... I had a lot more in me on the dead lifts, but with the impending WOD with 45 reps@225 and 45 box jumps, I thought I'd play it safe....good thing...after the first unbroken set of 21 deads I wiped out on my first box jump even though it was only 24"..... My legs just wouldn't fire.... Paced for about 20 seconds and the legs came back!
