Shhhh...I did the same thing just for the fun of it and to get my butt out of scaling and my comfort zone. I don't care if I'm dead last, I had the courage to go ahead and commit.[/quote]

Yay!! That's my goal also! I figure pushing yourself will get results!! The 1st WOD is a killer but I had a blast doing it with all the youngsters!!;) I'm still in shock that I was able to do DU's at all!

[quote=Jim Cordes;915542]3/12 Elite Goal day

My Elite Goal was 2x bodyweight deadlift. I weighed 160# so I was going for 320#. Unfortunately did not get there but got closer than ever before. I tied my PR of 305#, and I was able to get 320# an inch or two off the ground.

3/17 WOD

Box Squat 5-5-5-5-5

This was the first time I did these, so I was satisfied. Shared a bar with Baker. This was first time in over year we worked together, it was fun.

Followed by: 3 Rounds For Time
5 Handstand Push Ups
20 Box jumps
40 double unders

7:58 @ 1 pad and 24" box. Didn't get completely down to pad on each HSPU, but I think I got lower than I would have with two pads. Believe it or not, the double-unders started clicking for me. I didn't count consecutive reps, only total reps, but I'm pretty sure I got over 20 in a row a couple of times. Is this a breakthrough? Sure hope so.

[/B]800m run
3 rounds
10 push ups
10 squats
10 sit ups
10 dips
5 pull ups


Five rounds of:
5 Dumbbell deadlifts

5 Dumbbell push presses
5 Dumbbell squats

35/40/45/50/55 (f)

[I]Couldn't do any more cleans after yesterday! Not sure if any green beer had anything to do with it. That's my story & I'm sticking to it! ;)

Hope everyone had a wonderful St. Pat's!!
Couldn't do this last year!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Way to go everyone, some great numbers posted!

My day started out like this:

0700 Chiropractor!--couple of cracks and off to the Box to try and do at least (1)one double under!!!--
Coach Kurt--said I wasn't leaving till I did the OPEN WOD like everyone else even if I could only get one point on the board!!!!--he showed me that there was one other guy in the NW region had the balls to post his (1) double under score!!!
So after 20 minutes of practice tripping over the @#%%king rope I started to get it, 1,2,3,trip,1,2,3,4 !!;););)--so I said what the H@ll and started the clock!
Did: [B]1Rnd, +29[/B]--and I plan on going back in tomorrow to see if I can improve it to at least get on more round!! Darn I like this stuff!!! :thanx:
11:30am--Physical Therapist appointment-(those snatches weren't good on the shoulder)
NO MORE SCALING DU'S with tuck jumps!!--
See ya on the Board friends!! Have a great Weekend

[B]3.19.11 Saturday - [U]recovery[/U][/B]
Still supposed to be taking it easy whatever I do till Monday.

Warmup w/Doubleunders,
barwork/snatch practice, just working on form....

Irritated that Ive been practicing these for 6 weeks and still not great at it.
And [I]just[/I] been told by my housemate, that it must be tough for me to hear, but 'you can't be good at everything.' Wow. Gotta take that one from where it comes, a person who HATES weightlifting or exercise of any kind at all!

So now let's see where I am so far:
[B][I]Snatch[/I][/B] Feb 1 15kg - Mar 19 40kg
[B][I]Snatch from Blocks[/I][/B] Feb 1 15kg - Mar 19 42kg
[B][I]Clean[/I][/B] Feb 1 38kg - Mar 19 42kg
[B][I]Clean & Jerk[/I][/B] Feb 1 47kg – Mar 19 52kg
[B][I]Snatch Press[/I] [/B]Feb1 15kg - Mar 19 42kg
[B][I]OHS[/I] [/B]Feb 1 34kg - Mar 19 42kg

Ill just have to see. Foam rolling & trigger point with the balls in a bit.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Great gains Deb Good luck everyone in the open

WOD 1 from the open 1 very ugly round, took me around 8:00 to hit 30 doubles, at least I learned I could hit one round in 10:00, Doubles unders have always been my downfall

3/18 work on jumping rope
WOD 5 rounds run 200m apx
5 burpees
10 pullup

3/19 at home WOD 1 from the open one round 20 DU still ugly but I will take it and and hope we move on away from Double unders ( ha)

I am happy we are all here to share our work and thoughts, Thanks to everyone
