Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Damn, Michael, those are some big numbers!

7/4 WOD
"Flying a Cargo Plane Full of Rubber Dog **** out of Hong Kong"

With a partner, for time:
100m Goose Carry
100 pullups, while wingman hangs on the bar
100m Goose Carry
150 pushups, while wingman holds plank
100m Goose Carry
200 squats, while wingman holds a squat with a 25# plate
100m Goose Carry

Team 102 Years with Augie
Augie did more than his share of pull ups, I did more than my share of push ups. Hard to hold squat with 25# plate, I sometimes dropped into a fully deep Third World Squat.

Link to whiteboard (WFS): [url][/url]

7/6 workout
Cathedral Peak
Huge crew led by Augie. Rick and Alfonso joined us. Rick moved slowly so I stuck with him. Johnny Walker Blue, Jameson’s, and two kinds of champagne at top.

7/7 workout @ SB Athletic Club
A. Front Squat 5-3-3-2-2-1
135-155-165-185-205*(f, 1 only)-215(fail)

I must be getting in sync with the CPC programming because I went into Saturday thinking we had not done front squats in a long time. Turns out Eric programmed them for Monday when I knew I had to be gone.

B. 21-15-9
Row for calories
Push ups

Did all pushup sets straight through except a little break in tempo in middle of sets of 15 and 9 push ups. A practical difficulty in doing this WOD by myself related to setting and resetting the calorie counter on the rowing machine. If this is done again it would be helpful to do this in heats with a counter to reset the rower calorie count during the push-up intervals.

This was a great burner and it would be nice to see it popping up at CPC.

7/9 WOD
Endurance Seminar, Day 1 @ SBCC track
10 Stadiums (single step), 50 yards lunging, 5 more Stadiums.

Looks like we are going to be working on leg strength leading up to Pier to Peak this year.

Tuesday July 9, 2013

Goblet squat warmup. (this made the globos raise an eyebrow)

45-135-185-225-275-325-375-400 (ran out of weights & bent the globo bar)
(this alarmed the globos, particulary the bent bar)

Back Squat
(a small group were watching, with their fingers poised over 911 on their cell phones. did anyone think to take a frickin' video? D*mn globos)

All the screaming, crashing, and clanking disturbed the globos...
But, all the screaming was good training for my MC gig at the comp on Saturday.

have managed a few PBs over the past weeks . esp Grace ( 27.5kgs 6m20s) improvement of 5kg and 4 mins ... actually i suspect it is because i have become braver ...
