Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
that is great news JT.. keeping moving is half the battle.

Have not been posting ( internet satellite problems :( . ) but I too have been moving.. yesterday re introduced wall balls to my pain today.. another win.
Over the past month or so have slowly built up the weights ..the aim has been to carry the weight across 5 x 5
so far:
Front squat 45kg
Back Squat 37.5kg
OH squat 27.5kg ( I think it is fear that is keeping me back on this)
Sumo deadlift: 60kg
Deadlift 62.5kg
Press 30kg
Push Press 37.5kg
Push Jerk 42.5kg
pitiful attempt at DU's
wall handstands
and rowing concentrating on perfect form...

so far so good.

Hope all are doing well

@Helen, rock on!

Friday August 14th, 2015

Carried more heavy things back and forth.

Walked 2 laps around the farm.
Did the second lap really fast (17:51).

Between the lifting, carrying, and walking, we'll see how the back/hip/butt fare on Saturday....

Cliff - Wow! That a LOT of work to prepare that food!

Helen - Glad to see you back!!

JT - Awesome progress!

[B]18 Aug:
500 m row
100+ SUs
10 leg swings on each leg in both directions
10 air squats
10 Push Ups
10 Pull Ups
25 Dead Bugs
10 Burpees (YAY! BURPEES!!)
3 45# OHS

75# (3)-95# (3)- 115# (2)- 125# (2)- 135# (2) - 145# (1)- 155# (1) -165# (1) -175# (f) -135# (1)

[I]This showed me I've been slacking on OHS. My knee started talking and I started getting sloppy. I couldn't jerk the 175# and dropped it. I was able to clean 165#, which i hadn't done in a while. So i felt better about this WOD.[/I]

Moving (lifted a few boxes, bad idea)

Walked 2 miles, did some stretching

Good visit at the shed.
Lots of random mobility and stretching.
A few light weights, some TGUs, even some rock climbing training!
Hip felt good once I got warmed up and stretched out.
Cramped up in the middle of the afternoon (after three straight hours at my desk...)

Beautiful four mile stroll in the woods. Let's hope "motion is lotion" is true!

Minute 1 – 2 Turkish Get-Ups 20#
Minute 2 – 6 KB Deadlifts 35#
