Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
JB - Have your ears been burning? I told a bunch of "the Kids" about your 10,000 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) accomplishment. There was a collective gasp followed by "TEN THOUSAND BURPEES!?!?!?!" Yay! Burpees!!:D

Since we're talking Paleo, anyone up on doing Paleo while taking coumadin?

400m run
3 rounds:
10 Air Squats
10 Push Ups

Sumo Squats
High Knees
Butt Kickers

Mobility work for shoulders (PVC Pass throughs,...)
Med Ball Clean Practice


30 KBS @ 1.5 Pood
10 Squat Clean Thrusters
15 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
3 min Rest


[I]There were [URL=""]pictures on facebook[/URL] from the 0600 class that made this WOD look ugly! They were right!!Any WOD with "rest" in it has an equal amount of "SUCK" in it!! I've been happy that my KBS for 1.5 Pood (& 2 Pood) seem easier. Unfortunately, the next movement was the Squat Clean Thrusters, which are more brutal than Thrusters or Squat Cleans alone! Ended doing 'em in subsets of ONE! Had little left for the Burpees! (Yay! Burpees!!) At least I wasn't the last one done!! [/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
ya that one just sucked reading it william

JT couple of quick breakfast ideas....left overs from the night before with a couple of fried eggs over top. sounds a bit weird depending on what you had for dinner the night before but with a bit of planning it usually works for us.

we also fry up a bunch of chopped bacon and mix it in with whisked eggs, and veggies and a bit of cheese and put them into those silicone cup cake things and bake them in the oven. kinda like a scrambled egg muffins. 2 or 3 of those for breakfast with an apple or a smoothie keep us going till past lunch. we make enough for 3 or 4 days so that it is just a grab and go kinda thing.

12/20 WOD

A) Backsquat, 2012, 3-5 reps, 4 sets, 3:00 rest
Traver reminded me to take my 2-count at the top, which became an exhale and an inhale, then squat. It helped. Pleased with this, although I probably lost the 245 in my head before I lost it on my back.

B) 5 Rounds For Time:
10 burpee pullups
15 wall balls
200 M run
2:00 rest between rounds
(Coach’s Note: 80-90% sustained efforts. Athletes should be looking to hold the times within 10 seconds of each other on each round.)

Nothing fun about this one. Very hard to tie movements together gracefully. Tried to do wall balls in sets of 5, but did not even manage that. Had a very hard time catching it on the way down.

I took the idea of not going out with a blistering pace too seriously, since my first round was 3:28, slowest in the class and my slowest round. Other rounds were something like 2:58, 3:05, 3:10, and 3:02. Finished WOD at exact same time as Francie, we ran the last lap together and pushed each other pretty hard.

PS. Warmed up with squat clean wall balls, and Traver shared the cheery news that Malzone is going to have us do Squat Clean Burpee Wall Balls, 100 for time, someday soon. Oh well, maybe the Mayans will end the world before that day.

Thanks for the ideas about eating right at breakfast easier. If I can make it as easy as pouring cereal or opening pop tarts, there's a much better chance this new habit will take hold.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
12/21 WOD

“CPC’s 12 Days of Christmas”
12) Squats
11) Double Unders
10) DB Push Press (used 30#)
9) Box Jumps (step down) (used 24")
8) KB Swings (used 1.5 pood)
7) Knees to Elbows
6) Burpees
5) Pull ups
4) Ring Dips
3) Weighted Sit ups
2) Handstand Push ups
1) Muscle Up (Max 3 attempts)

(Rep scheme is 12; 12, 11; 12, 11, 10 etc. all way to 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. That's 650 reps for those keeping score.)

SO BUMMED that I missed the muscle up despite three attempts. Otherwise, it's been a while since I've done a nice long chipper. Took a couple rounds before the double unders got dialed in, then basically they all went straight through. I focused on doing all sets straight through, and other than some double under fails and the aforementioned muscle up fails, all sets done continuously.

Here's another one. We have two over 50 women at our box. I'm one. I also write articles for Masters Athletes and others. I'm a researcher and would love to write about (and find answers to) any masters-specific questions.
