Monday Rode Bicycle 7 miles on the road.

Today
Warmed up with 2 rounds of 15 squats, 15 sit-ups, 15 push-ups from knees, run 400m

Did “Cindy”
AMRAP in 20 mins. Of 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats
I did 11 rounds.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Skip/Terry - Man do I love and hate a challenge, so of course I had to give the 30 minute 225# deadlift workout a go. Once again, what looks doable always ends up a challenge. Had to do it by myself and happy to report I finished all DL's in 30:15. Broke up the last 2 sets of seven up into, 4/5/5 and it ended up taking me an entire 1 minute longer than RX. My grip is shot and ego a bit bruised. Thanks for pushing me. Skip at 165# your effort is even more amazing.

Took Sunday and Monday off to recover from possibly some overtraining.

Saturday went went for a hard run in the woods. Did a little under 4 miles in about 30 minutes.

Terry, your workout today reminded me a "Pain Storm" workout I used to do on a regular basis. The idea was AMRAP in 40 minutes, although I've never done 40 minutes because that is ridiculous, but 20 minutes, 10 minutes, 10 rounds all make for a good quick workout. As follows: with 95# do 5x deadlifts, 5x hang cleans, 5x front squats 5x thrusters and 5x back squats without putting the bar down, that is one rep. Rest as needed and repeat.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Cindy again

13 rounds - assisted pull ups. I decreased the assist as the WOD progressed.
I can't figure out how all of you can do it so fast. I guess I wont wipe my brow or take any water. That's probably good for another round.

8/25/09

Warm up- 5 minutes Jump rope, KB drills

WOD
"Toni's 29th Birthday Workout" (Rotten kids)

Four Rounds For Time
400m Run (Subbed 500m row)
29 One Arm Kettlebell Overhead Walking Lunges (25#)
29 Box Jumps 20″ (Subbed 15")
29 Sit ups

42:01 - Lunges were hard after doing 500' of walking lunges on Sunday. 1st time actually doing box jumps. Usually substitute step-ups but I found it's not too bad as long as I step DOWN !
Although I wasn't really satisfied with my time, if I put things in perspective, I was second overall among Heavyweights at out box.

Forgot to put the distance on the WOD 8-24-09 it was a 400m Run.
Tried a CF Football WOD tonight across the street at the park.

[B]WOD 8-25-09[/B]
Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes:
10 Kettle Bell Swings 2 pood
40 Yard Sprint

Did 14 Rounds...2 pood swings are quite the gasser.

Tom, Yeah the dead lift WOD Skip posted was fun. I think 1.25 to 1.5 times your body weight is a good goal, next time I think I will try 275lbs. I was getting the 7 rep sets done in about 12 seconds at the end. Saturday was a good day for me, for some reason I had a lot of energy, but my hamstrings were screaming the next day after one day of Karen, 135 DLs and then 600ft of Walking lunges.

We did:

5 rounds for time:

5 muscleups
10 push press
20 KB swings

I did pseudo muscle-ups, 35# push-press, and I graduated to 35# kettlebell. Time was 13:and-some-change. 13:49?

And vodka is not good fuel. I need to get back on that wagon ride to Halloween. :yikes:

Hey all,

Fell behind again - - gone to the L. A. area all weekend.

[B]Terry,

[/B]Great work on the Thruster/HPC/SDHP WOD. That one was a gasser for sure!

[B]Diane D.,

[/B]Great work - - kudos on the plank hold victory. I love those, but man, can they fry your core quickly! I'd also be willing to bet the "stinkin' pull-ups" are around the corner for you!

[B]Jay,

[/B]Nice job on the DL/Burpee WOD. Definitely the sure way to fry one's posterior chain......and quickly at that.

[B]Diane M.,

[/B]Burpees can be your next best friend.......NOT. I think it is John B. who coined the best descriptive name for burpees - - Pain Filled Soul Suckers, or PFSSes for short. BLEH!

[B]Deb,

[/B]Speaking of burpees, you are one massochistic person.......98 of them - - sheesh! Before the WOD.......Sheesh X 2! Great job. BTW, I have seen people kip ring dips, so I'd imagine it's probably OK, but perhaps someone else here knows for sure.....

[B]John W.,

[/B]Nice time and job on the Row/Burpee/Run WOD - - another P-chain "fryer."

Take care all!


Awesome that you got your husband to work out with you. Kool-Aid is definitely in order for him. And some CF Broccoli....
:broc::broc:

[B]Skip,

[/B]Hope the earache subsides altogether and quickly. The workouts suck enough without the additional distraction. Props on the DL PR and the "Nate" score!

[B]John B.,

[/B]Nice OHS work and also on the WOD - - Walking Kb swings - - definitely puts a twist on things.....

Diane Dennis 08-27-2009 02:35 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Rest, it's a four letter word. Some great WOD's this week. Just need some time. A close friend and colleague of some 18 years got a coral tank for his 55th birthday. I asked "where's the fish?". He commented: "With you, if it's not in motion it doesn't have meaning." Some are visual learners, other auditory, and finally some kinetic. I suspect we each have some combination. However one will tend to dominate.

They were! But I don't think the vodka was!

Today was so much fun!

Thursday 8/27/2009
For Time:
30 BW Back Squats
100 Sit-Ups
15 50% BW OHS
50 Sit-ups
15 BW Front Squats
25 Sit-Ups
100 Air Squats

First time for back squats and front squats. I used 15# bar for OHS and 43# bar for back and front squats. I can definitely go heavier on all of them next time. We didn't time the workout. The air squats at the end really made me wobbly!

Deb Weber 08-27-2009 12:10 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
no not a great time.

Back from my surgery. Hurts like he double toothpicks.

Scott...forgot to tell you. I did get the home version of "Fix Your Hernia at Home" on e-Bay. Had some plastic spread out in the garage, everything. Then I found out that the instruction were written in Japanese. And to top it off, no pictures!

Row 5k- 20:07.6

3x10 Power clean and Jerk- 50% of 1 rep max
Used two 45# KB

Finished with 1 arm KB snatch practice
2x5 each arm @ 55#
5x1 each arm @ 70#

I still find it vaguely unsettling to have a 70#, unusually shaped object held above my head/body with only one arm.

WOD - Squats -1

Time - ~ 10 sec

Actually finding that CF helps w/ post op mobility. Better body and core awareness and being able to command contract certain muscles to stabilize my core has made it easier to get up and down from sitting or from the bed. And believe it or not, I did do a squat to pick something up off the floor.

Now I can sit here and arm chair coach everyone. Heh, heh, heh! :rofl:

Diane, That's awesome on the OHS, so are you doing 50% body weight OHS? or the 15 lb bar? OHS is definitely one of my goats, going to do the OHS 3-3-3-3-3 WOD tonight :yikes: I think OHS is harder for most people in our age group because lack of shoulder flexibility. I am proving my point to the younger folks now that we have some more over 50er at our box. :)
