Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Nice work, Claw!

Row 1000m; 1 mi dog walk; pull-ups; bench 45 X10/ 70, 90, 105 X5
Bench 125, 140 X3/ 160 X7
Pushups X2X10; DB rows 50 X2X10

My sciatica flared up last night and continued this morning. Could not find a comfortable place for my left foot during the bench and the pushups were really unpleasant. Looking forward to tomorrow's rest day.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
sounds like quite the run claw.....hope all is better now....

tuesday at the box

1 RM football bench bar 2 sets of black chains 140lbs

2 x 20 dbell press 30lbs

100 unbroken incline pushup (got 42 before my shoulder let me know to stop)

12-12-12 bench pull ups (lying on elevated bench pull bar to chest)


last nite at the box was a bit of a weird one.

take your 2,000 m. row time and add 9 minutes. then row 500m, 3 minute break and repeat 4 times. try to get exactly to your time of 2,000m row plus the breaks. was within 5 seconds.

then 3 rounds

1 minute ghd plank hold (clock stopped when a break was taken)
1 minute ghd plank hold L/R side (clock stopped when a break was taken)
30 toes to wall

woke up this morning feeling like a truck ran me over and then backed up and did it again. have not felt this way after a workout in a while.....

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In


Heavy Floor Press- 8-6-4 then 5 x 2 @ 80%
Got up to 315 for 4 reps and my shoulder started bugging me.... I thought it was my set-up, but coach said because I'm doing them so strict and its only the top 1/2 of the movement and I'm so strong deep in the whole that momentum carries the bar to the top.... Never thought of it that way, good thing we do floor presses every 3rd or 4th week


8 Rounds:

5-10-5 Sprint Shuttles

Two times

Rest 1:2

100 heavy sledgehammer twisting V-ups. :yikes:

20 toes to rings

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
9/5 WOD
Skill Session: 10:00 free handstand practice
For Quality:
40 Medball Cleans
30 Tall Box Jumps (step down)
20 Shoulder Taps
10 Ring Muscle Ups
3:00 Plank Hold

This was a good WOD to come back to after three days of rest, no pressure for time or weight, just form.

Handstands slowly slowly coming along, but mostly my time aloft is due to the momentum of up and down, not really holding while inverted much.

Medball cleans with 20# ball and sets of 10, box jumps to 30" box. I needed a small 12" box to step down to. I was not able to manage any shoulder taps but I have about 20 attempts. Similarly, I was not able to accomplish any muscle ups this morning after a few attempts so I switched to skin the cat’s.

Did 3:00 plank hold on hands and toes without a break. Left a big pile of sweat under myself that looked suspiciously like I peed myself. Great to be back!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Great job guys!!

[B](At the Base Globo)
.333333mi run
2 min on Jacobs Ladder
100 SUs
10 Air squats
10 Push Ups
10 Leg swings (both legs, both directions)
10 DUs/Attempts

Back Squat
1X10@60%, 1X10@65%, 1X8@70%, 1X8@75%

180#, 195#, 210#, 225#

3 RFT of the AJ Complex:
20 Hip Ext GHD
20 TTB
20 Back Ext GHD
20 GHD Situps


[I] Backsquats went easy, which was good since I clipped my left knee twice on Tuesday with the 135# Squat Cleans and the knee swelled a little bit. The squats went well.
(AJ is a Beasty Firebreather!) Hadn't been on the GHD for a WOD in a while. Turned out that the TTBs were the choke point in the rounds. I just couldn't hang on for more than 5 reps! Also, the GHD sit ups were hard.
One of my buddies said I sounded like a "raging Viking" with my grunts! :D[/I]
