[QUOTE=Stephen R. Lampl;799292][I][B]Bill,

[/B]Great runs. Sorry about your hamstring. Hope you didn't tear it like I did a couple of times. Now I'm kind of scared to go full-tilt, but I'd like to see what I could do....[/QUOTE]


Thanks! Didn't feel that good when I did, I was the slowest, but oldest, of the group. But hey, that's Crossfit! ;)

I didn't tear it or bruise it like I did last December. Just gonna take it easy & stretch the hell out of it! The good thing is that it's feeling MUCH better today & I can walk & run slow!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

It's great to hear nothing serious occurred with your hammie.....sounds like you've got a great recovery routine going.

Take care and ROCK ON!

6/19 Workout

Worked with Becky at Sergei's bootcamp in Manning Park. Four rounds of 5 minutes on, 1 minute off; lots of Bosu ball work, kettlebells, dumbbell squat clean and jerks.

6/21 WOD

6-1, 5-2, 4-3, 3-4, 2-5, 1-6
Clean and Jerks (165#/115#)
Muscle Ups

Substituted 135# C&J and 2 Burpee Pull-Ups for every Muscle Up: 20:35.

Wanted to do 145# on C&J, but wasn't able to move it well at all. Dropped to 135#, and still had too many missed reps. On C&J, just three things to remember: 1. Get elbows around [I]fast[/I]. 2. Get elbows around [B][I]fast[/I][/B]. 3. Get elbows around [B][I][U]fast[/U][/I][/B]! I'm definitely lifting bar high enough, I just need to get under it quicker!

WU: Kane squats/dips/20# WB shots/reverse hypers/pullups/pass throughs/OH lunges

[B]Strength Work[/B]:
Back Squat
Frustrating loss of strength which I attribute to my 60 day Paleo effort (~kcal intake 2200-2400 per day with 1gm of protein per lb of BW...about 180-185 gms protein per day.) I'm thinking I need to eat more kcal...mebbe 3000 a day?

[B]WOD[/B]: 4 RFT of:
400m C2
5 DH pullups
10 burpees

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
So Jim, what was it that you said about the C&J?

Stephen nice going on the burpees. Today work out had burpees. In separate sets I can not do 10 without taking a break. Slow going on getting better on these. And yet, they are so simple!:shrug:

Monday 100621

Five rounds for time of:
45 pound barbell Overhead walking lunges, 50 feet
21 Burpees

Let trailing knee gently kiss the ground on each lunge.
Substituted bars at different weights(6,6,9,12,35). 15 burpees per round.
completed in 18:48. Knees were a few inches off the ground on ea. lunge. (a work in progress).

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
3 Rounds For Time:
400 M Run
21 KB Swings (1.5/1)
12 Pull Ups

11:19 as Rx'd. Wanted to beat 11:30, and was pleased I did so. I have been waiting for this WOD for a long time! First time I've ever done it. Surprisingly, the pull-ups were the bottleneck for me. Couldn't string together 12 even on the first round. On the other hand, did 21 KB swings straight on first two rounds, and split them in half on third round. Unfortunately, my reps were less than perfect, as I bent my arms on the swings (although I was good about getting the bell overhead and head through my arms on most of the reps) and the pull-ups were less than 100% chin over bar. All in all, though, I'm very pleased with this effort.

Big props to Brett who SMOKED this one with an 8:59!
