2/16 WOD

Front Squats (135#/95#)

10:58 @ 115#. Wanted to use a weight where I could go to full depth on all FS's. I succeeded, maybe missing only 1-2 reps in the the whole workout. 115# still pretty heavy. I wasn't able to string together more than about 4 or 5 after my first set of about 7 or 8. Did burpees with thighs and chest to deck, although I inch-wormed up on a couple of them. I was able to do all burpees more or less continuously, which was good.

We started with lots of mobility work on hamstrings, glutes, and hips. This was a great way to start, especially because of all the DOMS in my quads from Monday's WOD (hang squat cleans and lots of walll balls).

Small class today, only Sean and KJ and me. Sean is getting lots of strength back, which is great to see, and KJ gutted through this Rx'd. Very impressive.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Pat, Thanks for the encouragement and to all of you for the continued inspiration! I have as well been using "Carlson's Labs" lemon flavored liquid fish oil for last 4 months and it has helped a lot with recovery (and the cats aren't chasing me) It makes a great oil and vinegar dressing too!

Hit the hay last night looking forward to the running/Kettle bell/Pull-up WOD and when I got up it was snowing huge flakes and when I got to the Box no one wanted to run in it!:(

No problem decided to work on Rowing efficiency and mobility work. (will do the WOD tomorrow!):rolleyes: Will likely scale the same as you did Pat and give it a go!

Great numbers, everybody!

Tim - [B]10,000m Row![/B] Can't believe only your butt is sore!!

Claw - hear you on those Cleans!! Had the same problem with them. One of the instructors told me to focus on Speed, i.e. getting the weight up as quick as I could, which helped.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
William, I must admit I did stop (twice) for about 10 seconds to pick my butt out of the seat and then after that I decided it better to just "finish" This distance, surprisingly (only my second attempt) isn't that hard if/when we get our head out of the way and just "DO the work". I am intrigued by what I see possible in all aspects of our CF program the amount of work possible from us "Mature" specimens with dedication and good coaching!!
NOW IF I CAN JUST LEARN TO JUMP ROPE!!!!! heck tomorrows RX WOD would take me the remainder of the week to do the 160 DU's!!!! (can I sub rowing another 10k?):yikes:

Good work on the Come Back!!! I hope to do the running WOD tomorrow as I am signed up for a 8k charity run in a couple of weeks!

10 minutes of jump rope practice -felt good
Ran 1 mile at 7 mph and 2 miles at 7.5 mph with occasional speed bursts up to 9 mph. HR stayed in zone 1 most of the time (125-137) but got up to 150 on my last speed burst. Felt pretty good today, but my calf muscles were still a bit tight so I had to stretch them out good.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
tim great time on the 10,000 m. row. they are fun eh? i have done 3 or 4 of them and once you get your head around what you are doing and just buckle down it is not that hard.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
You guys (and Michelle) are killing me!! Everybody is SO strong & FAST. Oh, that row, I think I'd die!

[QUOTE]One of the instructors told me to focus on Speed, i.e. getting the weight up as quick as I could, which helped.[/QUOTE]
Struggle with these as well Im no expert but I gotta believe the light weights CF uses in wods you're probably pulling high enough. FWIW the Oly coaches are teaching me, NO its NOT about jumping or pulling the weight UP quick as you can (you DO want explosive hip extension) its about [B]PULLING UNDER[/B] the bar as quick as you can. (he tells me a$$ down! a$$down! a$$down! - I drive them nuts!)
The other biggest tip I learned for these & front squat is - believe it or not - take a huge breath, chest up & out - then lift.
