Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I heard the Lumberjack WOD is a killer. :D

Double rest day for me. I was going to go to the gym yesterday, drove four blocks, decided driving was not a good idea, so I circled back home. Darned snow. My legs are killing me anyway, so rest is probably a good idea.

Wow, I thought everyone was just joking about puking!

Still sick. Well, getting over it. Pretty sure now I had the flu. Which strain? I don't care. It sucked.

20 pushups
25 flutter kicks (4-count)


Dead lift 21x155
Bench Press 21x135
Dead lift 15x155
Bench Press 15x135
Dead lift 9x155
Bench Press 9x135


Maybe tomorrow the gym!

Dave O. , I did not set the world on fire with this one!:)

Lumberjack 20 (scales in parentheses)

275# DL 20 reps, 400m Run (5.0 spd on treadmill for all runs)

70# DB/KB swings 20 reps, 400m Run

45# OH Squat 115 #, 20 reps (45# bar), 400 Run

20 Burpees, 400 run

20 Pull ups, 400 run

20 Box Jumps, 2 ft. box (step ups), 400 run

20 DB Squat Cleans, 45# ea. (25 # ea), 400 run.

completed in 45:34. The DB squat cleans were very difficult.

Maybe it's the conditioning or the weight loss or both. This many runs without significant knee issues is not where I was a year ago.:kicking0::kicking0::kicking0:

Yesterday - flew.

Today - snow, snow, snow. No one went to work. Tons of the stuff! Shoveled a little to keep the front porch clear and also the garage doors. No point doing more, it's still snowing hard.

Dug out my snow shoes and went for a short hike in the storm. Took the dogs with me. That's some hard work. Dogs are exhausted, but happy.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I wish no one was at work in Denver. We have snow!

I got my deadlift up to 155# this morning. Last time was 145# and then my form went south. 155# felt really good. 165# was apparently out of the question though. That bar did not budge.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
No snow here. Just cold, gray Columbus.

Rear squat 5x5 185, 205, 225, 235, 235


Thrusters as Rx'ed
Pullups with thin band

Feeling about 90%, still hacking a bit, but not infecting anyone in my basement!
