Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Howdy all,
Man we are populating the pages here pretty quickly. I wonder if CFHQ would consider establishing a stand alone Over 50 forum? We might find a lot more of our aging brethren (and sisteren!) if our thread weren't catalouged under a WOD Log forum. Just a thought. What do you guys think?

Terry, Cool deal on the sprints...I love them. Have you looked at the Crossfit Endurance page ([url][/url]) {WFS}? Lots of great endurance WODs that support the main site WODs.

Mark, Congrats on the DL PR! Deads are my favorite lifts; my PR is #305 as well. I'm missing them right now, but look forward to trying to keep up with you on them when I get back at it.

Today I changed things up a bit;
WU was 3 x 1 min jump rope, 3x 500m row, 3x 10 #35K bell swings, 3x 10 situps.
Then I did Cindy with 16 rounds exactly in 20:00 min . Not my best Cindy (19 rounds), but not as bad as my first Cindy (11 rounds)

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

I googled animal and found your picture! Nice work. Can't believe you did a WOD after lifting. Congrats on the PR.


Thought the same thing about a Over 50 CF Forum. I think it's a good idea. Who do we ask? Site administrator?

Now let me throw this at all of you. What would you think about a collaborative CF Over 50 Journal article? Not sure what format...maybe some profiles...I don't know...just a thought.


Sorry to hear about the job. Seems to be a bit of that going around. Go run in the rain. It makes people wonder.

Started a thread in the fitness forum. If you are curious (WFS): [URL=""][/URL]

Ran to Wal-Mart during lunch and bought two iron 45lb plates so I can do today's WOD at home. You should see the looks you get carrying a 45lb plate in each hand in a Wal-Mart store. Fun!

And of course, broccoli. Lots of broccoli!!!

:broc: :broc: :broc: :broc: :broc:

Would have been more than five, but there site seems to have a five broccoli limit. Drat!

[I][B]090422 WEDNESDAY - at Valley Athletic Center, Cottonwood, AZ

Warm-up: Precor FX 544 Crosstrainer: [/B]10:00 / L3 / 165 SPM / Ramp height 10.0. This machine is fantastic for isolating the posterior chain, quads, or using both. Great way to warm up for today's WOD!
[B]CFWU X 2.

WOD: Dead Lifts 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1. Post Loads.
45# bar X 15
95# X 10

225# X 3
Work Sets:
275 X 1
305 X 1
310 X 1

[COLOR=Red]320 X 1 PR!
[COLOR=Black]325 X F
325 X F

[/COLOR][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=Red][COLOR=Black]These felt great until that last couple. I felt my form starting to go and my back starting to round slightly on the last 325 attempt and the last lift at 315. Thought I'd take a vid of my work, but forgot to set up the camera until the last lift (DUH!). Here it is ([/COLOR][/COLOR][/I][COLOR=Red][COLOR=Black]wfs) [/COLOR][/COLOR][URL][/URL] .

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

[/B]Props on the great DL PR! Can't believe either that you took on another WOD after DLs......Awesome.

[B]Scott and Charlie,

[/B]Count me in on the "Over Fifty" forum and idea for the CF Journal. I think there are far more of us than we know out there. My personal experience is that people I know in my age group and above are interested in trying CF, but they are afraid of getting hurt because of the intensity, etc., not realizing that everything can be tailored to their abilities.


[/B]Props on the solid Cindy! That's a great set of rounds if you ask me!


[/B]Sorry about the job too. I'm with Charlie 'bout running in the rain (lived in Crescent City, CA for nearly 20 years - - where rain is the norm).


[/B]You might see if you can have the site administrator raise that five broccoli limit...:pepper::broc::pepper::broc::pepper:. Congrats on the additional weight plates. If you want the best in funny looks, do the "Virtual Shoveling" WOD in a globo gym......And great thread you posted, BTW!

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Charlie - Does that mean you ran [B]BACK[/B] from Wal-Mart carrying two 45 lb plates??? Yowee! Some days I can barely carry my water bottle!

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Thanks for the video. To me your form looked good. Better than a lot of deadlift video I have seen on the main site. I will be chasing that 320.

Charles Pyke 04-22-2009 04:40 PM

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Deadlift 1-1-1-1-1-1-1


Wish I was that tough.


You looked real good in your DL video.

Mark, Steve,

Congrats on the PRs :bowdown:

For me…not feeling the love with the DL’s today. Mojo busted or something, even while wearing my Chuck Taylor’s. Disappointed with my performance. :shrug:

WU: 1500m row at mod minus effort; 3x[SS, graduated OVH Squats, 7 AB Mat sit ups, 5 push ups, 5 assisted pull ups, 3 jumping ring dips]
Adjusted the rings up just a little higher today.
Lift WU: 95x2x2; 135x1x3; 225x1x2; 295x1x1

Working Sets:
1 - 315
2 - 325
3 - 345
4- 355(f), 345(f), 325
5 - 325(f), 295
6 - 315
7 - 320

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Steve, Congrats on the DL PR! Cool video.

Diane, sounds like your doing well, sorry about the job...I am sure you will do fine. I went through a similar situation just recently.

Scott, I am kind of mixed on having a stand alone over 50 forum. I would surely participate but just wondering if there would be enough activity. I like what we have going on here in Mark's thread.

Charlie, I like the your idea of a journal article. have you read this one by Paul Manfre (WFS) [url][/url]

I am glad tomorrow is my rest day....tired tonight. :yawn:
