[QUOTE=Diane Dennis;724738][B]John[/B] - CrossFit Confluence is on the North Side (a few blocks from the confluence of the Allegheny and the Monongahela rivers!). It is the CrossFit location that I have been yearning for! The other Pittsburgh CrossFit locations are in outlying suburban areas, but this is close to downtown and 10 minutes from where I live in Crafton (the near-west suburbs). It is a brand new affiliate that is coached by one of the most talented trainers in the city (Patrick Benton). Patrick and I have worked together for a long time and he introduced me to the CrossFit concept. I've been drinking the CF kool-aid ever since, even though I've had to work out in a lot of locations that were not CrossFit conducive (various globos and body-builder gyms).

I've had 6 weeks off from all workouts so I'm not in peak shape right now. But wait until early-to-mid-Spring and I'll be kicking the butts of the youngsters once again thanks to Patrick and CrossFit Confluence! (Note: I have no financial affiliation to CF Confluence - just a long, loyal affiliation to "Coach P")[/QUOTE]

I know Crafton, used to live in Mt. Lebanon. Good to know where Confluence is. Sounds like it's right around the stadiums there(?), by the old Heinz plant (the irony). Maybe I'll drop in there or send one of my chubby relatives.

[QUOTE=John Scott Rezendes;724799]

WOD; Fight Gone Bad ...where each event is 1 minute of effort with a 1 minute break between rounds. Having never done this before I assume you just add up all the numbers. Heck, what's a good benchmark?
20 23 25 #55 Push Press
18 16 14 20in Box Jump
12 13 11 #55 SDLHP
12 14 15 #20 Wallball
7 7 8 C2 Row Calories
69 73 73 Total = 215

This really sucked; The box jump and SDLHP especially. I might have been able to put up some better numbers but I was self timing and had to stop after each effort to write my numbers down. Oh, to have a training partner.[/QUOTE]


There was a National FGB WOD and competition this summer. I completed 240 reps. Beyondthewhiteboard has the rankings and distribution here,

The site has yet to develop an age based distribution. I'm sure if you search the bbs here you'd find a lot of posts.

The whole thing was very cool and a lot of fun. We had 4 or 5 affiliates in the Chicago area at our box. It was like a mini Games.

This was the fourth national (Global?) FGB to benefit Wounded Warrior Foundation. I'm sure they'll do it again this summer. Here's the site,

[QUOTE=John Jaeckel;724361]01/14/10

band-assisted pullups 1x15
jumping pull-ups with :05 negatives 5x3
knees to chest 1x15

OMG, if DOMS is any indication, that Pullup focused routine will help a ton. Man, am I SORE. :eek:

Not Rhabdo sore. But sore. Definitely from the jumping pullups with negatives.

Today - 01/15/10
Noon workout at CrossFit Confluence

500m row; 3 rounds - shoulder pass-throughs, Sampson stretch, PVC OHS, push-ups, back extensions, sit-ups

WOD: "AlterNate" - Choose either "Nate" or "Helen"

I chose Helen: 3 rounds - 400m run; 21 KB swings; 12 pullups
Subbed 500m row for run and pull-ups were jumping
4:32/ 5:25/ 4:42 = 14:39

My legs were tired and uncooperative causing my row to come unglued in round 2. I pulled it back together for round 3, but needed that third lung for the whole thing. Happy when it was over.

Graduating from jumping pull-ups to band-assist next week.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Had the day off so I "worked from home" Did the 100114 workout. Called for walking on hands, stationary hold, and handstand push ups. Went to Brand X for a few well chosen scale downs.

Warm up on 30" stationary recumbant cycle (said I was "working" from home:rofl:).

3RFT: 20 wall walks (10 ea. arm), 1 min. hold, and 10 HSPU's. These were all done in "V" position w. knees on a desk. Finished in 4:34.
