Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

For sure the Air Squats are the ticket to mobility and strength.:D
Question: Following KS's talk on the squat and working to bring feet closer together (pointing straight ahead) and working on low position, with knee's tracking outward/weight on heals I find that I get an "impingement" in my hip at about 10:00 and it tends to stay there while in the low position? (doesn't feel like a muscle (is this a good thing to continue to do)?:shrug: I also tend to have my feet a little wider than my trainer likes in the squat position (DL, BS,FS Thursters etc.) I am wondering is this a "situation caused by bone structure" or tight/short hamstrings/quads, abductor etc. muscles??:shrug:

25 air squats, 25 GHD sit-ups, 10 scarecrow/2.5lbs, 15 BS 45#

BS-strength challenge-125x20 (1/2 way through the process) and today was great! (keep same rythm an all reps and felt strong throughout!) :)

(Right shoulder still really sore-Icing as I type

[quote=Tim Randall;858151]Pat: Ditto on the Mwod squats! And we thought that just getting down to the medicine ball was good enough? The first time I "shot my leg out" into the pistol position I fell on me arse! ...[/quote]
Tim - you're a better man than I! :rofl:

Pat - Tried to do the 10 min squat, was only able to hold it for the 1st 1.5 min. and the last 2 min. (And that was brutal! :ranting2:)

I have to say that squats we do in CrossFit have REALLY diminished the amount of knee pain I have had! Keep it up!

Deb - What? No weighted vest Burpees! (Yay! Burpees!) ;)

[/B]4 rounds-
10 push ups
10 air squats

(each round we had to increase the height of our feet for the push ups so the last round we were almost doing HSPUs.)

5 rounds-
Dead lifts, 3 reps/max reps HSPU
225#/11, 245#/10, 265#/11, 275#/9, 275#/7 “Spiderman HSPUs”

[I](Felt good about the deadlifts, though my hammies & glutes were feeling it!)[/I]

Gonna participate in my box's 30 day Burpee (Yay! Burpees!) challange in November! Woo Hoo!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Bill and Tim, it is really hard to hold the bottom of a squat for extended time. That's why I decided to do 30 sec down and 30 sec. up. After a few days though it is getting easier and I notice that my knees are less stiff in the morning on rising. I believe Kelly S. when he says that this is not shearing the meniscus. I keep imaging all those third world people in squat position enjoying a meal!

Wendler Wave 1, cycle 2 OHP: 5X 114,135,150(8R).

Crossfit Lifetime Fitness in Tempe. Tire flip outdoors. This was a contest. However, I was the only contestant!:shrug: Flipped it for roughly 400 y. Did a few on the biggest tire. I'll post some j pegs later. I'm trying to figure out how to download from my cell (Android Incredible-----anyone w. advice, let me know). The contest was held by the front door of the gym. Surprised that more people did not join. Both trainers who organized the contest run "Boot Camps" and acquired the tires for the classes. So maybe next time there will be others who are a little more adventurous.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Pat, I thing you must be right as after a solid week of doing these squat workouts (to depth I didn't think possible and forcing the knees out at the bottom, I was able to squat more weight and DL more and I have "0" soreness in the knees! (only soreness is in my hip) and I don't think it is anything but "good".

Sorry for off topic but I just hope everyone gets out and votes this month and truly votes their values and that each of usTHINK hard as to what their vote means to the continuation of of this GREAT COUNTRY!

Went to a Celebration of Free Enterprise Day last night!--spent over an hour of the program honoring our Service Men and Women that are serving and have served to make it possible for all of us to BREATHE FREE, LIVE THE LIFE WE CHOOSE TO LIVE AND raise a family that will be able to do the same!!

Rest day today: (continue Shoulder Rehab movements and squat stretches
and carve punpkins with the grandkids (doesn't get better than that):pepper:
