Deb,
What weightlifting program are you doing? I'm just wondering what I'll be doing after my on ramp ends in Motown at the end of March.
I was thinking about Starting Strength.

2/2 WOD

Front Squat:
5-3-2-2-1-1
135-175-185-195(f 1 only)-195*-205f
195 is a 10# PR! I totally collapsed at 205; that was just a mind fail, not necessarily a body fail.

Followed by: AMRAP 15
5 Wall Climbs
10 Box Jumps (24/20)
15 KB Swings (1.5pd/1pd)
4 rounds plus wall climbs plus a couple box jumps. Wall climbs are really tiring! You know it's a hard AMRAP when 24" box jumps are the rest interval. Guest appearance from Traver, fun to do front squats with him.

[B][U]February 2[/U][/B]
[U]At Lunch[/U]
10 minutes of jump roping
Bench Press: 10x45#, 10x135#, 5x200#, 3x225#, 5x250#
Shoulder Press: 10x45#, 5x115#, 3x130#, 2x145#
Ran 1 mile at 7.5 mph on 1% slope
Stretched

Nice easy day. Going skiing tomorrow. Not a good idea to do shoulder press after bench press if you care about your numbers. Probably a good way to give your shoulders and triceps a nice little training jolt though.

Utah....Park City, Alta, Powder Mountain, Snowbird

Stowe and Sugarbush are good mountains. I really like Jay as well. I love the trees.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Oooooh, utah.....luckeeeeeeee!

But Stowe and 'bush along with Jay-it's-just-too-darn-far-Peak are some of my favorites within driving range. And we love to get in the woods.

Bromley, nice little old VT Bromley, has some nice bumpy woods. Plunge is a favorite.

I've only been out West once; we did Vail, Breckenridge and Keystone. Vail's back bowls were just mind boggling, but I'd go back to Keystone first. Breck was a little too crowded and glitzy for my taste.

So, enjoy your trip! How long?

Wednesday's are my normal Rest day but decided to go in to give some support to a friend (my Pastor) that was going for a 1RM DL Pr. with only 3months of CF under his belt he did great (matched his Previous Weight) I was not feeling 100% as legs were still a little sore from the DL/400m sprint WOD from 1/31 but what the hey I lifted with my Bud and managed a New 1RM of 335#.
Another great CF day!!

Jeff, Shed used to program strength, I got superstrong doing it, but he doesn't anymore. The lifting was what drew me to CF in the first place; I was throwing strength stuff in every once in a while b/c I want to get stronger, now I'm training the Olympic lifts at FDU, tired my numbers weren't moving much and form not getting better. Its snatch, clean, clean & jerk and squatting/accessory work. Trying to fit in CF too.

Starting Strength is good, but I think you'd have to stop crossfit, make a return after you get where you wanna be. This is my dilemma, I like lifting first and foremost but I also like crossfitting. This week I did one metcon, maybe Friday if I feel better. Will have to see how the lifting goes. I am not sure what they do for conditioning.

Motown doesn't post their wods, I guess.

Been there done that w/press-bench. Have a nice trip...
