Cliff consider joining a bunch of us who finished the last Whole Life Challenge and are continuing on Facebook.

14.5 in 24.16. Should have gotten my coach to record this. Since I turn 70 this year, I'd like to see a 70+ Masters Group.

JT - Thanks for the rowing coaching. It felt strange to cut my strokes down but now 20-22 feel pretty good. Can't seem to get much below that consistently; been doing them wrong for so long, it will take a while to break the habit.

3/26 Working out at company fitness center in VA. No kettlebells due to "safety concerns"
WU: Row 1km; halos 25# X20
Workout:
35 lb dumbbell press ladders 4X(1-5) 60 reps per side
35 lb dumbbell swings X9 minutes. 203 reps.
60lb dumbbell suitcase carry X 100yds (both sides)

3/29 Back at home with my own equipment :kicking0:
WU: Row 1km; goblet squats BW, 25, 35, 45 X10; halos 25, 35 X20
Workout:
35# clean & press 4X(1-5) 60 reps/ side
35# swings X9:00 206 reps
Weighted pull-ups (+27) 2 X(1-5) 30 reps

Was on business travel this week so not a great week for workout consistency. Also drank a couple of frosties every night while getting together with friends in the DC area so lost a little ground on weight and percent bodyfat. No regrets, though; it was good to see folks I used to work or socialize with before the move to CO.

3/28 WOD
Open 14.5
For time
21-18-15-12-9-6-3 reps of:
Thrusters, 95 / 65 lb.
Burpees.

19:17.
Super happy with this one. Great ROM on all reps.

Broke each set of thrusters into 3rds, so each 3rd was progressively shorter. (7-7-7; 6-6-6; 5-5-5 etc until second to last round when I did 3-3; 3.) Burpees took longer than thrusters. I basically fell down then stepped up from prone, alternating legs. Surprisingly, shoulders started to go before legs on the burpees. Also, I tend to "prance" over the bar so I thought of each burpee as ending with an 8" box jump. Made each rep count. Went slowly enough on thruster descent to get deep enough, and took a moment to set both feet before hopping over the bar.

@claw, nice job, I witnessed times from 19:43 to 8:53 so I understand what you're saying when you had to "focus" on jumping not prancing. Strange things happened to people after the round of 15...

"Rest" day
worked 06:30 to 09:00
did homework with the girls 09:00 to 12:00
lunch 12 to 12:15
more homework 12:15 to 15:00
drove home and rested 15:30 to 18:30
worked 18:30 to now (20:49) with another hour or two to go.

Does this really qualify as a "rest" day?

Just a couple months shy of 51 and one spine surgery later:

14.5:

30# Powerblock DBs for thrusters (jumped over the DBs), plank pushup burpees with a jump and overhead clap. 15:35

Used dumbbells rather a barbell so I could keep my position more upright with less chance of rounding my lower back. Harder on the shoulders than using a barbell, so I consider the tradeoff fair. I sure don't want a second spine surgery.

Got through the 21 round with no breaks anywhere, but it was way too fast to start. I should have broken them up a bit to save a little for the later rounds.

I liked the flow of this one. Good workout. Definitely a keeper.

great work and I liked the scaling. I have used the same in the past for thrusters.
