Good, much better. Thanks.

We were talking about the game's site at the box on Saturday. What a mess it is. Can't find a thing.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
You guys look like you'll be fearsome competition at the Master's Games; I'll be keeping an eye on things from afar.

4/26 WOD

15 Presses (95#/65#)
45 Box Jumps (24")
30 Push Press
30 Box Jumps
45 Jerks
15 Box Jumps

13:29 @ 85#. Tried 95# but could not press more than four straight, so went to 85#. My sets of all presses never fell below five, so I think I picked a good weight. Forty-five push jerks is a LOT of push jerks.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I tend to do the WOD from 1 week ago because I am working out independently and it helps me to see what other folks have done. So todays WOD for me was:

3 rounds for time of:
Walking lunge, 100 ft
50 Squats
25 Back extensions

I did 200 feet the first round (100 steps).


Training schedules. Some folks were talking about that a few replies ago...I used to do 3 on 1 off and would sustain that until I felt weariness building then take a week or so off. The last time I did that I felt pretty good for a long time then when I took time off I really needed to rest...slept tons and lounged about for maybe 2-3 weeks and I was not as motivated as I usually am. SO....I think that this is an over 50 thing to modify my training schedule. I generally try to do the WODS as rx'd but I have randomized my training schedule more. I follow the WOD timing of 3 days on 1 off but on the weekends I just don't do the least not usually. Instead I do other things. Like hiking or light running or something specific (I have been doing lots of handstand push ups or sprints) or I practice martial arts et cet. OR I sleep! The point is that I have built a kind of irregularity into my resting. Some weeks I do 4 WODS plus weekend stuff and other weeks I just do 3. Sometimes they are bunched up and sometimes they are spread out. Then just for fun I will switch up and do a full 3 on 1 off schedule. I am finding that this sort of irregularity is actually really good for me. I seem to be able to maintain it and not need long periods of laying off. But I still get periods of intensity where I am pushing more. With this type of schedule my metrics are generally improving.

Welcome aboard Mike and William.

Did a modified version of the following yesterday.

Monday 100426

For time:
50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
10 Muscle-ups
40 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
8 Muscle-ups
30 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
6 Muscle-ups
20 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
4 Muscle-ups
10 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
2 Muscle-ups

The shots were against the pillars of power cage (couldn't find a wall w/o a miirror)---8-9 ft high. 20# ball was this rubberized thing w. handles. Muscle ups were from kneeing position w. rings just above chest level.

Finished in 16:20. This was one very noisy workout. The more I banged the cage with the ball, the more plates fell to the floor.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
4/27 WOD

800 M Run
21 Squat Cleans (135#/95#)
800 M Run
15 Squat Cleans
800 M Run
9 Squat Cleans

21:05 @ 105#. Picked the weight I used on Grace. Squat cleans are feeling very efficient: I'm shrugging bar up enough to slide in below it, concentrating on swinging elbows around quickly and dropping to squat quickly. I've had my eye on beating my clean PR, which is currently 155#, and think with my better technique lately that mark will fall soon.

Nice big class, 12 of us. Props to Brian for running an extra 400 after his set of 9 squat clean: if in doubt, move!

3x25 bar Push Jerk
