Nothing magical, I just set a 12" box underneath me and went down until I tapped it with my backside, then up!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Claw: Impressive OHS. I would love to have those numbers. That's one of my goats and its due to poor flexibility. Working on that.

[U][B]December 12[/B][/U]
10 minutes of jump rope drills
3 circuits: 3 strict pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, 15 squats
10 minutes of dynamic stretching and mobility work

Five rounds for max reps of:
Body weight bench press
Bench (190#): 15/15/15/11/11=67 (PR by 4 - was hoping to do 75, but I'll take a PR)
Pull-Ups: 15/15/15/15/1/=78 (Tied PR)
Total: 145 (PR by 4 - thought I'd get 150, but this is ok)

Shoulder stretches

Time to kick the training up a notch this week. Too many rest days and not enough overall work. Feeling kind of off right now.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
JC, mobility work on my shoulders and hips helped a lot with the OHS. There's plenty of strength in the legs to lift these loads, its keeping it balanced on the way up and down that presents the challenge.

12/13 WOD

Tabata L-Sits (20 on, 10 off; 8 reps)

Followed by 3 rounds for reps:
5 DB Clean & Jerk Progressions (Left clean, right clean, left jerk, right jerk, left overhead lunge, right overhead lunge.)
5 Handstand Push Ups
5 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
3 Minutes rest in between the 3 AMRAPS
(Start where you left off.)

Maybe should have taken today as a rest day, very tough WOD. Tabata L-sits turned into more like 15 on, 15 off, with very bent legs and tapping my toes on the ground even when up. Ugh.

3 Rounds for Reps:
7 rounds with 25# dumbbells and one pad for handstand pushups. C&J progression was clearly the bottleneck, with HSPU's a close second. Very difficult to get down to one pad on the HSPU's, and tough to get up to handstand position after a while too. Racing with Tyler, but not really fair since he was using 40# dumbbells. Ugh.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
somewhere today, my energy got sapped!

Did a really long warm up--very stiff today.

Wendler wave 3 Back Squat:
1X315 (5R)

I am noticing that on BS day and DL day, I seem to be more fatigued after the heavy lifting and not as energetic approaching the met con that I usually have planned for later in the session. Today I just got started late and reached the end of my time limit for the session.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[B]12.13.2010-Monday-Day 1[/B]

Row 500, squats lunges shoulder mobility (marc was waiting so it was short)
Complete as many reps as possible in 10:00 of:
95# (65#) thrusters...
... perform 5 burpees every minute on the minute, starting with minute zero.
[B]57 Thrusters.[/B] Saw people do this at the Hoboken Winter Challenge Saturday....Marc got the same score and he did 12 or so his first two rounds, I paced myself w/seven. Yeah - I think my metcon is def. down!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[B]12.14.2010-Tuesday-Day 2[/B]

Warmup: Row 300, squat, lunges, shoulder mobility stretch

[B]Strength: Squat[/B]
3x135 (got 8) probably could do a few more but lost my air and that was that. Seems like my squats are getting a little better, still problems with my low back (long waist, I should be 5'10" LOL) - keeping my air & tight and keeping my chest UP....

For time: (25 minute cap)
squat clean thrusters - 135# (85#)
burpee box jumps - 24" (20")
[B]22:34 Rx[/B] Wow. My last set of 3 squat clean were crap (parallel) since I was trying to beat the clock, needn't have been, if I knew I had that much time left (staggered clock). I didn't wanna miss this one!! Pretty good one.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Deb, way to go on two tough consecutive workouts.

[B][U]December 13[/U][/B]
Lots of work again today but once again no WOD.:ranting2:

[B][U]December 14[/U][/B]
5 minutes of jump rope drills
3 circuits: 3 strict pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, 15 squats
10 minutes of dynamic stretching and mobility work

Five rounds for time of:
22 Kettlebell swings, 2 pood
22 Box jump, 24 inch box
Run 400 meters (up and down a 400M hill)
22 Burpees
22 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball

Stretched shoulders, hamstrings and did some calf/hip mobility work.

Had to work late AGAIN tonight and arrived home in a bad mood, but said to hell with it I'm doing Whitten. Didn't finish until 9:30 and it was 19 degrees in the garage, which ended up being a good temp to do this WOD in (I was stripping down by the time it ended). It was all about the burpee/wall ball shot combo for me (quite the shoulder burn). The swings/box jumps/runs weren't too bad. Ok, I feel better now.:)

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 02:26 AM.
