I got back in saddle and did Rounds 4 and 5, and the decided to make up my missed round right after. My kb swings and pull ups broken into small sets and my rows were terribly slow, but I finished it.

Might as well start somewhere so what better place than this!

Stats
56 yr old female
Not new to CF but have been dabbling for about 4 years.
I teach skiing in the winter and there is not CF box near me in VT so I have to start over every spring!
5"4 147 pounds on a good day
I come from a background of amatuer competitive bodybuiding with some success.
So yesterday was testing to find a 1rm of the Front squat

Work 5 sets
5 x75
4 x85
3 x97
2x115
1x125
I think I could have gone heavier but I really was not even sure where to start and I ran out of time

Metcon 12 min
21 du
3 pullups ascending order
45 sec plank
So I got to round 3 with 9 pullups and just could not get to 12 in 4th round so I kept the next 3 rounds of pullups at 9-11

Today more testing
1RM CG Bench Press
5x65
3x85
2x95
1x115
1x125 fail no time to go back and try between 115 and 125

then for time
5 rounds
6 push jerk(75)
15 Burpees
12:26

Rx was 95 for the girls so next time I will up the weight a tad and see how it goes.This was a gasser!

JT, you might want to try Foundations. We are very big on it in our box.

Here is the ďadvancedĒ course taught by the creator of the program, allegedly for Lance Armstrong. Beware, itís harder than it looks. (All links WFS): [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4BOTvaRaDjI[/url]

Here is a couple simpler programs, demonstrated by our coaches and taught again by the creator of the program. Part I: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjBJmVRhPy8&feature=player_embedded[/url]

Part II: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ApRUMomxWYE[/url]

I have found it really helpful in increasing both strength and flexibility.
