@Andrew, 1k in 4:20, you just raised the bar again...

Sunday December 20, 2015

A little stretching and mobility, not too much.
A few light squats, trying to keep the bar over the middle of my foot.
A few light snatches, trying to keep the bar over the middle of my foot.
A few presses (up to 125#), trying to keep the bar over the middle of my foot.

In the afternoon, walked about 1.5 miles with my chain stop, stopping occasionally to cut limbs off trees.

In the evening, went to Ashland University to watch John play.
Ashland won again, now 9-1 and ranked #22 in the country.

3 rounds + 10 reps 75 lb- Sumo Deadlift High-Pull + 15 reps 75lb Shoulder to Overhead + 2 reps 75lb front rack step-ups 18 in box

[I]This one was tougher than it looked. I broke up the reps into subsets of 5 reps, which seemed to work. I wanted to even out the step ups, but my right knee wasn't strong enough.[/I]

Nice job Bill! That's the kind of stuff I need to do more of, I think I would have died after like 7 minutes.

@Cliff, think about posting some of your power lifting days!

Tuesday December 22, 2015

Took advantage of the lovely warm weather to go outside for a long walk, stopping occasionally to swing a metal club and send a white ball skyward.
5 over par.

then I the metcon with 24″ box Jumps & 14# Wall ball,

[I]I regret doing back squats last night. I could feel how weak my right knee was. I could feel my knee on the Wall Balls! I did each round faster than the previous. Keeping moving and doing the WBs in subsets of 5 helped.

I was talking with one guy about Christmas and mentioned getting stuff for my grandkids. He couldn't believe I was a grandfather! I LOVE that when it happens! :D Thanks Crossfit!![/I]
