Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Today - 09/22/09
11AM workout in the gym with Bill

50 DUs (24,10,12,4)
Run to the gym in the rain
Row 500m

5 rounds:
8 X 100 hex-bar DLs
20 jumping pull-ups (moved the bar up higher for more pull and less jump and did with ease - could a real pull-up be in my future????)
6 push press (45/50/55/60/65F on rep 3)

Row 500m: 1:59

After failing on the push presses I felt too bummed to run up the hill to home. My body could run but my mind said "screw it" so I walked home in the rain feeling sorry for myself and cursing my inferior upper body strength. :o I'll be over it by tomorrow.

[B]John Scott[/B],
Hope for the best on your knee. With the work your doing, its certain to get stronger and maybe that will alleviate the pain.

Sounds like your rehab has been rocky. Keep the fire burning.

No excuses other than work and life, but my workouts have been spotty for the past few weeks. Trying to get back in my groove this week. Catching up my past few:

CFWU x 15 x 1 round
Front Squats: 44x5; 94x5; 132x3; 152x3; 172x3; 192x1 (failed rep 2); 182x3
Annie: 50-40-30-20-10 Dbl Unders and Ab-Mat Butterfly situps
Time: 12:34
About 0:10 off PR, which considering my total lack of coordination and ability to link DU's, I was pretty happy with.

#1 Usual early AM Spinning Class
#2 CFWUx15x3 rounds
21-18-15-12-9-6-3 "L" pull-ups and HSPU (feet hooked on a bar, about chest high, forehead to floor)
Time: 18:39

[B]09/22/09 [/B]
CFWUx15x3 rounds
"Daniel", 50 pullups, run 400, 21 thrusters (used 94#), run 800, 21 thrusters, run 400, 50 pullups
Time: 19:27

Mark Ervi 09-22-2009 07:29 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

My husband worked out with me.

Run 400m

John Scott Rezendes 09-23-2009 11:02 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Had to hurry today.

1000m C2 4:45
5-10-15 pullups
5-10-13(F!) dips
5-5-8(F!) HSPU
10-15-15 BW squats
5-10-15 #20 wallball shots

#135 DL
Ring pushups
Abmat situps
9:00.1 Felt really strong and could have done more weight/reps, but wanted to baby the knee some.

[B]Charlie[/B], guess what? I am attending an FRG meeting this evening. My first. Maybe my last. The wife has about three more weeks before she leaves for the year, so I figured I'd try and make nice with the other spouses in the support group. It ought to be a comedy goldmine. Maybe I can find one of those surrogate pain feelers you were talking about....or I could subscribe to the Scotch of The Month Club and just suck it up.:pokey000:

Pat Quigley 09-23-2009 03:25 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
skipped the main site work outs. Somehow, I injured a shoulder and knee in a yoga class:(. So I did Cindy today. Got in 19 rounds and 5 pushups. This is PR. :kicking0:

Then went to the pool and swam Tabita lengths (bet. 12-14) w. 60 sec rest. This Tabita took around 6-8 minutes. Next time I'll keep a better record of time to standardize the work out in the water. Also 60 sec. rest is definitely too long a rest.

Jay Szerencsy 09-23-2009 06:02 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I was sick for a few days so I took a much needed rest.

John Scott - have you tried running in a pool using a float belt. I find it very useful if I have knee pain. You can make up all kinds of intervals. Joan Benoit Samuelson won the Olympic marathon six weeks after knee surgury by pool running.

Pat - I am really impressed with those numbers.

Today's WOD

KB right arm swing, clean and press, front squat
KB left arm swing, c and p, fs
8KG - 23:48

This was a good WOD to come back to.

Charles Pyke 09-23-2009 07:04 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Go with the scotch plan. A lot fewer regrets!

Linda Kardos 09-23-2009 08:59 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Monday I had 6 innoculations in my shoulders. I was hurting bad yesterday and fearing missing out on the pressing WOD but went for it anyways today.


[U][B]Warmup x3[/B][/U]
15 wallball
10 wind sprints-10m
15 arm circles (F&B)
15 leg swings (FtoB, StoS)

3x45 SP


SP 1-1-1-1-1 55-65-70-75F-65-65
PP 3-3-3-3-3 70-70-70-75-80F-75/65
PJ 5-5-5-5-5 55-60-65-70-65

Matched my PR on SP. I don't track PRs on multiple rep attempts but if I did I'm sure I would be matching or breaking PRs tonight. Felt strong. Oh and I have my TK knee wraps and O-lifting shoes again...yeah! :kicking0:

[B]Scott[/B], your Annie time does not reflect any issues with DU ! Even if I could do them faster, my breathing couldn't keep up.

[B]Diane[/B], there's no shame in your upper body work. You too are someone I bow to with your cardio stamina.

[B]Pat[/B] your strength is CF beastly!

Gotta agree with[B] Charles[/B] on the scotch plan :)

Deb Weber 09-24-2009 04:14 AM

Bill Houghton 09-24-2009 04:48 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Ok, was well into Monday WOD before I realized the Push Presses were supposed to be 3 rep sets. I was doing one, so here is what I got:

SP 115, 135, 145, 155, 160 F, 160 F
PP (single reps) 160, 165, 170, 175 F

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Today - 09/24/09
North Shore workouts were canceled today and tomorrow by the Pittsburgh Police and the Secret Service (google "G20 Protests in Pittsburgh"). Ran to the gym instead.

2 min jumping jacks (154)

Dumbbell swings - 30#
SDLHPs - 45# bar
Lateral dumbbell swings - 15# each hand
Clean and push-press - 45# bar
Weighted lunge jumps - #15 each hand


1 min jumping jacks (91)

Wowee! This was tough. I had to do about 20-30 seconds of rest before the 12 and 8 rounds. My forearms were on fire and my legs were completely shot. It's a miracle that the lunge jumps didn't kill me - I felt like I had anvils strapped to me. Trudged home.

Mark Ervi 09-24-2009 07:15 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
CFWUx3 w/assisted dips, 6 minutes running on treadmill, 30 burpees

I did 245-265-275(f)-255-255-255-255-255

Not sure if I will get to workout today. Finally the weather has gotten cooler here, and it is making me want to stay snuggled in the bed in the mornings.

John Scott Rezendes 09-24-2009 12:48 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

I realized this should have been a rest day, but I was feeling especially needy so I:

1000m C2 4:37
5-5-5 pullups
5-5-5 dips
5-5-5 pushups
10-10-10 shoulder pass throughs (amazing how much flexbility I've gained doing these)
10-10-10 PVC OHS
3x#45 in each hand shuttle walk for 50m

Swim 1000m 26:34.7
8xFreestyle sprints (wherein you swim 25m as fast as you can and then rest the same amount of time before beginning next sprint) where 21 seconds was my fastest and 26 seconds the slowest

Terry Dickman 09-24-2009 09:00 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Went to see an old physical therapist for some lingering knee and foot problems. So for the time being, I am swearing off any heavy lifting.:(

One of the trainers in the practice is someone who is certified in crossfit. So this is an opportunity to get some coaching in while using my insurance.:kicking0:

today I did the 090925 workout: 135 Squat Clean 10 reps
50 GHD Sit ups
135 SC 8 reps
40 GHD situps
etc,etc 135 SC 2 reps
10 GHD sit ups.

Scaled the weight to 95 lbs. Completed the work out in 9:04.

A smack of reality today with how much lower body strength I've lost by not being able to go to CF classes. Anyone else find that consistency in workout intensity is even more important for maintaining conditioning in the second half of life?

Pat Quigley 09-26-2009 05:17 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
My first physical therapy session really shook some things up. The session left some body parts sore and swollen. I was on this strange machine that shook at some high frequency. This has something to do with firing up the gluts to enhance a greater range of motion. Another guy was leaning on his elbows to loosen his shoulders--that comes next.

Today I did "Angie". I couldn't find this one in my log. This is: 1 RFT of 100 pull ups, 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, and 100 squats. Total time was 18:27. I see why this is called a "chipper". Just keep chipping away till it's done.:rofl:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Still alive. A bad cold that has been running through the squadron made it to me. Getting better now.

Pat...that is awesome that you found a PT who is also CF certified.

Had to skip my 11AM gym workout due to an appointment with a replacement window salesman that ran long.

[B]Saturday[/B] - 09/26/09
Made up Friday's gym workout. Didn't log it right after so now I can't remember everything (senior brain cramp)

Row 500m

With 15# dumbbells in each hand:
24 lunge steps
12 OH squats
24 lunge jumps
12 squat jumps

Fuzzy on what came next :confused:

Row 500m - 1:59 (same stupid time as always)

[B]Sunday[/B] - 09/27/09
Rest Day

[B]Today[/B] - 09/28/09
6AM North Shore workout with Patrick

G20 barricades removed and we are allowed to park on the curb and to congregate in the park

Got about 15 minutes of work in (bulgarians, squat jumps, lunge walk, push-ups) when we were hit by lightning and hail. I had to run to the little black car and move it under a bridge to avoid hail damage. After the hail I drove home because it was pouring down rain and I wasn't in the mood to be drenched. I will do some DU practice on the front porch and then run the steps later today after the rain clears up.

Bill Houghton 09-28-2009 09:28 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Couldn't log on last night:

Complete as many rounds as possible 20 minutes of:
65 pound Thruster, 5 reps
65 pound Hang Powercleans, 7 reps
65 pound Sumo Deadlift High-pull, 10 reps

9 rounds

Last time I did these as Rx'd. I had much better form and unbroken sets at the lighter weight. My HPC has improved so I think I will do Rx'd next time.

Linda Kardos 09-28-2009 11:44 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Get to do daytime workouts for the next month.We'll see how that goes. It was hard to head out to do that first pullup today.
Warmup x3[/U][/B][LIST][*]5 PLU[*]10 PU[*]15 THR[/LIST]
2:15 ab plank hold (was hard today)

[B]DL: [/B]
85-105-125-145-165 175F

[B]WOD[/B] - AMRAP in 10[LIST][*]5 THR 50#[*]7 HPCL[*]10 SDLHP[/LIST][B]Total Rnds: 4[/B] + (5THR+7HPCL)
My strength once again is way off on those deadlifts! The WOD was not bad but surprised to find the hang power cleans the easiest out of the round to complete.

I'm thinking of starting a 60 day challenge for ab plank holds (on elbows and toes) working up to one hour of ab planks in one day by increasing the time by one minute every day until you reach 60 days. You can break up the time as necessary in your waking hours throughout the day. So if you are up for 12 hours on your last day and want to do 12 x 30 sec holds on the hour then you're done. For me I'll try to inrease my hold time.

Diane Mahoney 09-28-2009 12:42 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I've been on "staycation". It was too cold and wet to play golf as we had planned. I did get in 5 workouts in the 9-day period and lots of walking. I'm happy to be getting back on schedule now!

My gym is doing a 30-day Paleo challenge starting Thursday. I really should participate. I am going to read the book and see if I can't get more motivated. I know I can do this and it would do me a world of good. And then Halloween is the 31st day. :stir:
