Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
It is a crime to live in Squamish and not go to the cliffs and mountains...
Glad to hear you're going to be getting out there!

Wednesday April 8, 2015

Walked 1 mile at a brisk pace, no back pain, no legs falling asleep, very nice.

Coached basketball for 1.5 hours
This involves throwing hundreds of passes and chasing down rebounds.
I was drenched at the end and loving it.
Today was a conditioning day for the kids, not a skills day, and not one of them complained. I was running them HARD!!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I totally agree with you on that JT....I am blessed to have a group of friends our age that love being outside doing just takes someone to take the lead and organize what ever adventure we are going to go on

last nite at the gym....before I started in on my work out I said to the coach..."that partner wod looks fun if you need a second I'm in"

he says "nope we should be o.k."

soooo I keep on doing what I am doing.....

stepping up to a 20" box w/45 lb barbell on shoulders single leg box step ups

3 x 20 lying on side leg raises w/10lb ankle weights

then I said to the coach "you ok with partners"

he said "yup....carry on"

50 225 lb back squats for time 8:22

just as I finished the squats my coach goes and says "hey cliff we actually are short a in?"

I reply "sure"

so I get put with an old buddy who was responsible for getting me into xfit....and the old guys did

1 minute per station w/ 1 minute rest for 3 rounds...alternating reps

24kg goblet squats
tire flips and then jump on it
seated sled drags w/115 lbs on sled 30'drag
push ups/ring rows
5-10-5 yard shuttle sprints

297 reps for team "old guys rock"

I am a little sore this morning :D
