[QUOTE=Bill Houghton;843814]Thanks John, that's a helluva bench press in your sig line! :notworth:[/QUOTE]

Thanks.

Ahhh, well, it's dangerous territory for a guy with two torn pecs (left in '00, right in '07). So far, so good, though. :rofl:

9/15 WOD

5-5-5-5-5 Deadlifts (at 60, 65, 70, 75, and 80% of 1RM)
Followed by 1 Mile Run for Time

165-185-205-225-240
This was a 5:30 p.m. WOD. I felt really strong on these, so for the hell of it decided to try to set a new 1RM, and hit it at 305#! PR! :kicking0:

The one mile run was a "CPC Mile" which is really 1,640 meters, or 1.019 miles and includes 16 90 degree rights turns and various obstacles like post holes, a torn bag of oatmeal (WTF?), and running on concrete, hardpacked dirt, and gravel (not to mention passing the fish drying racks, strip club:yikes:, and porn shop:yikes::yikes:; God I love CPC!): 6:57, another PR! (Equals a 6:49 actual mile with obstacles; on a track with rounded corners, I'm sure I could beat that too.)

Awesome WOD! Glad I skipped a rest day to come in!

[QUOTE=Bill Houghton;843660]PR deadlift tonight 440

9 a.m. tomorrow I am going to drop weights from overhead on a rubber mat to see if it disturbs the neighbors. If not, we may have found a loction to move from my garage.[/QUOTE]

Huge congrats on the deadlift! I love the dropping weights business, it's the scientific method in action! Hypothesis: Dropping weights won't bother the downstairs neighbors. Test: Drop weights and observe and record results. Results? We're all dying to find out!

Banned! I was unloading the 45 lb bumpers from the back of my truck, droping them on the cemnent floor and they came in and said they could hear it! I didn't even get a chance to do a c & J! Argh! I have been looking and calling for weeks. Getting a tad discouraged! :wallbash:

Thanks for the congrats on the DL.

9/17 WOD

Press 3-3-3

Followed by “Airforce Wod” From the Midwest Sectionals
20 Minute Cap
1 Time for Time with (95#/65#)
20 Thrusters
20 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
20 Push Press
20 Overhead Squats
20 Front Squats
Every minute on the minute perform 4 burpees.

Press 85-105-115. 115# had been my 1-rep max, so it was great to get 3 reps. My Elite Goal is 120#, so that is easily in sight.

Airforce WOD: 13:56 as Rx'd. Crap, this was hard! Knocked out 20 thrusters in first minute, then was able to do sets of 6-10, depending on the movement. Each four burpees took about 24 seconds. My thrusters and front squats could have been deeper, and my OHS were pretty ridiculously far from perfect. Took one minute rest in middle of WOD, during front squat round I think, which helped.

Hi all. I am not yet 50 so I "cruise" this thread with awe and admiration. But us youngsters in our 40s (ha!) face so many of the same issues in crossfit.

I just wrote a piece on the birth of the "CrossFit Cougars"... I think people in this thread will appreciate it because it's about anyone over 40.. and that's you. Hope it's OK to share it here.. I will be on this thread in 3 years and 3 months.

Here's to all of us!!

Bill, a 440# single ... John, 325#x3 ... you guys are killing me here! Nice work!

A little catch up today - Press and Back Squat (5, 3, 1+)
Press - 120, 135, 150(2)
Squat - 190, 215, 240x3

Then, Helen (3 RFT 400m run, 21 KB swings, 12 pull ups) - 12:52.

The strength numbers were okay - about what I expected.

That Helen time is about 0:20 off the time I'd been hitting pretty consistently for the last 18 months or so. For a while, my running was getting worse, but my ability to crank out the KB swings got better and it was all just a push. I realistically think I can get this time down to 11:30 in 6 months time with some added focus on running/met-con type stuff.

Next week is a de-loading week, and after that I will continue with 5-3-1 but modified a bit to accommodate more conditioning. I'm ready to go!

Eileen,

Nice article. As a writer and 49 year old CFer, I applaud you. I had to read it and look at the photos on my iPhone (trying to get the last of the natural VitaminD here), so if I missed anything, my apologies. Honestly, I find the whole cougar hook up phenomenon (outside your well-articulated CF version of it) kinda pathetic. If you're trying to arbitrarily hook up with someone 15-20 years your junior, it just seems you have a gaping spiritual hole inside you, and typically those who do try to do that usually look older and unhealthier than they should at their age. To quote you, "gross."

I think the gist of your article is that we CF cougars fill that lost youth hole inside of us with replenishing, tightening, endorphin pumping insane exercise that people our ages "shouldn't do."

Maybe there is some narcissism there, but it seems so much healthier and noble! Thx for the read!
