[B][U]March 26[/U][/B]
Swam 1500 yds straight (28:01, HR mostly 130s, but hit 140s and 150s at the end, 500 splits were 9:30, 9:15, 9:15)
Cycled 15 miles (50:01, HR averaged 125 and peaked at 149)
Shoulder Press: 10x45#, 5x95#, 5x120#, 3x135#, 3x150#
2x through the following circuit:
- 50 side leg raises per leg (while lying on side) with 5# weight on ankle
- two minute plank
- 50 arm raises per arm (while lying on side with elbow tucked into waist) while holding 3# weight

Swim felt pretty good, although I was kind of stiff from benching the day before and that slowed me down during the first 500 until I warmed up. On the ride, my HR was low, but my legs had no power today. They were sore from the front squats, but mainly from yesterday's deadlifts, which I haven't done in a long time (since hurting my back). It was a moderately hilly route (two steep hills about of 200' each and a couple of smaller ones) and that was enough to make me feel yesterday's deads. It was 33 degrees and windy, so at least I made myself get out and do it. It was one of those days that you can make up some ground on the competition that thought it was too cold to ride. Two minutes off my PR on that route. Shoulder press and core work at the end felt very good. For some reason, the 2 minute planks felt easy today. I won't complain!

Another big volume day tomorrow.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[QUOTE=Jim Colby;918975]That looks like a good JU workout. I know this sounds really obvious, but when you're doing stuff like side to side jumps (or pattern jumps in general) you have to remember to move the spot where the rope hits bottom too so the rope and your feet are always in the same place at the same time. I must be stupid because it took me a couple sessions to figure that out (I was having trouble with the up and back jumps).

Psyching myself up now to do one of those long unbroken swim workouts that I hate. Writing about workouts, rather than doing them = procrastinating![/QUOTE]

Funny that you say this. I looked/felt like and absolute DORK when I was doing the side to side and the split sections. Both were really difficult for me, signaling to me that I need them even more than the others. On the side to sides I found a straight line in the rubber mat and focused about two feet in front of me and made sure I hit either side of that center line. It's amazing how something that sounds so simple really isn't.

Rested this weekend.


Workout today: 18:06
75 Squats
50 Pull-ups (band)
20 Ring dips (box dips)
50 Squats
35 Pull-ups (band)
15 Ring dips (box dips)
25 Squats
20 Pull-ups (band)
10 Ring dips (box dips)

This blasted my forearms and the pu's were difficult even with the blue band. I want so much to get off that band!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
3/28 WOD

100 Overhead Squats (95#/65#)
This is not for time, this is to be done in the least amount of sets possible within a 20 min time cap.
Six rounds (20, 20, 15, 18, 15, 12). Did a pretty poor job of getting to full depth on these. :-(

Started out with a bonus, two rounds of max burpees in 60 seconds, with 60 second rest in between: 26, 17
26 beat my PR by 5! I predict this will remain the CPC men's record at least until the noon class arrives.

Wow nice Grace John B.... John J - nice deadlifting. I miss deadlifting...

[B]3.28.11 Monday[/B]
weighed 73.48 kg today (about 162#)


25kg/5 (2)
28kg/4 (2)
31kg/4 (2)
35kg/2 (3)
38kg/1 (2)
41kg/1 (2)

50kg/5 (2)
55kg/2 (4)
60kg/1 (5)

25kg/4 (4)

He tricked me. Wondering if it was going to be a lite easy nite or what... he wanted me fatigued enough to snatch correctly w/o being able to compensate. The first two reps sucked (he said something like, c'mon its not even 50% weight for you). Then he said to snatch, then lower the weight and do a reverse liftoff and snatch for the reps. 2nd set got better, the third and forth sets he was very happy with.
