Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
For time:
1 Clean and jerk (155/95), 1 round of “Cindy”
2 Clean and jerks (155/95), 1 round of “Cindy”
etc etc…
10 Clean and jerks (155/95), 1 round of “Cindy”

I did 85#'s. Had thoughts of going higher but found those 55 clean and jerks a bit daunting. I think I will try 95#'s next time.

Hey Peoples -

I'm back! I know, most of you probably didn't notice I was posting anymore. I wasn't. Chiefly because I was having so much trouble with trying to change my password, it was just too frustrating. Nonetheless, I was able to fix it, and here I am again. And happy to be back.

I've been doing WODs but it seems dumb to try and list them all now. So I'll starting from scratch. I'm happy to read that you are all well, still working hard, and getting stronger.

Question: Has anyone on here participated in the Open, because I think I'm going to try it. Just would like to read some of the experiences you had.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hi All,


7 rounds of:

15 Kettlebells - 1.5 pood
15 Power Clean - 95#
15 Box Jumps - 24"

Time: 38:39 Rx

I'm glad I Rx'd this time, but it was 7 mins slower than the last time I did this, which was about 1 1/2 months ago. Last time I did it with a 20" box, I don't know if that had anything to with it. Honestly I'm just happy to have gotten through it.

10/11 WOD

400 M Run
Max Pull Ups
(Your score here is the number of pull ups that you end up with when all is said and done)

79 (25, 13, 11, 12, 10, 8). This is 4 off my best from last year, but I did only 6 rounds this time, not 7. Twenty-five pull ups in a row to start is close to, if not is, my best.

John B - Great job on that AMRAP!

David - That C&J + "Cindy" WOD Looks brutal!! Awesome time!!

Claw - Dude! You went all out on that 1st round of Nicole!! (Boy do I HATE that WOD!! ;)) Way to go!!

Wilfredo - Welcome back! I feel your pain about the board!! A bunch of us did the Open! My Box did most of the WODs about a month afterwords. My goal was to up my game a little! I stunned myself by doing 2 sets of 30 double unders! I'm planning on doing it next year!

Great job on "Whitman"!

In and Outs
Scapula Shrugs
Around the worlds (2x)

[/B]1-1-1-1-1 Weighted pull ups 0-5.8#-11.6#-16.4-22.8 (f)- 19.6

20 Min AMRAP:
20 135# Deadlifts
20 45# Squats
10 135# shovels
10 45# Weighted Sit Ups

3 rounds + 20 Deadlifts+ 16 Weighted Squats + 5 weighted Sit ups

Found out that a buddy of mine, 62 years, had sharp pains Sunday. Turns out he had Diverticulitis ([URL][/URL]). Pretty serious stuff. My Dad had it 30 years ago & is still going strong. My bud will be in the hospital about a week & probably won’t be in the box until next year. This will be a tough row to hoe, but the good thing is he’s in great shape since CrossFitting!![/I]

[B]Shovels??[/B] what are shovels??

[B]10_11_11 Tuesday[/B]


[B]Power Clean from Hang (below knee)[/B]
42kg/4 (realized the last set was supposed to be 4)
48kg/2 (2)

[B]Clean & Jerk[/B]
52kg/1+1 (2) (I missed 2nd jerk in 1st set, dipped forward and same as when the neighbor+dog appeared, lost my coordination!)

52kg/3 (3)

[B]Snatch Press+OHS[/B]
35kg/3+1 (3)

[B]Kicking a$$ and taking names![/B] I didn't miss one clean or squat - B-b-b-bbounce! Justin said I'm rushing & shorting my 2nd extension.
Apparently the programming is working on full extension and overhead now. I have snatch jump from hang above knee next workout (never done, not snatch pulls), also in this cycle very light drop snatch, and good mornings (OMG, my housemate is already scared of my glutes & hams!!).
The snatch press-OHS finisher? I laughed!! Easy peasy!!! These used to make my cry at night....

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Kudos to everyone here. Deb and William, your narrations FIRE ME UP. I read your stuff and imagine myself doing what you are talking about. The next thing I know, I am out in the garage trying to do what you were talking about. I will get that snatch working. Keep posting, keep narrating. I WANT INCREASED WORK CAPACITY!!! Better pain free movement. Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y is life! :pepper:

"Ran" a 12:30 mile this morning to "wake my body up" as a few athletes said on the Behind the Scenes at the Games videos.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I’ve been reading this thread for a while now and I am very impressed with the drive, fortitude, and high spirit that members in my age group continue to display. :notworth:
I just wanted to chime in and let you all know that this 50 yr old and his 20 yr old daughter will be doing our first Spartan Run this weekend in IL.
[url][/url] (W/F Safe)

I am looking forward to a fun and exciting time. Outside of my regular Crossfit training and Firefighting training, I have also been specifically training for this. Wish us luck. :D
And continue to fight the good fight. :highfive:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Thx William. I'd like to try the open. In fact have expectation to do so, unless something come up. Like my lack of strength and endurance. :)
