Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
500m row
3 rounds:
10 Push Ups
10 Sit Ups
15 squats

400m run
12 90# Hang Squat Cleans [I]Scaled from 135/95, looking for form[/I]
12 Burpees [I]Yay! Burpees!![/I]

2 rounds :mad: + 400m run + 12 90# Hang Squat Cleans + 6 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)

[I]Not thrilled with this. The hang squat cleans were the bottleneck. only one power clean in the bunch! At least the 2 rounds filled my quota of 16 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) for the challenge!!![/I]

5X2 75# Overhead Squats

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
400m run
20 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
20 KBS using a 45# Dumbell


[I]Included ~30 sec of letting my son try a few swings. (Impressed him!) Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) right after a run are tough!! So glad they count for today's count in the Challenge!! Running after the DB-KBS's were hard. I could feel how slow I am!! Last round was the slowest with the most breaks[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Haven’t posted in a long time. Here it is, quick and dirty.

8/17 WOD
“Snatch’n Balls”
Snatch 5-3-2-1-1-1
Disappointed not to get 115 up, but my form on the lesser weights was pretty solid.

100 Wall Balls For Time performed in Tabata Intervals – 20 Seconds of Wall balls, 10 seconds of rest.

8/18 Saturday WOD
Team of 2, perform
150 Thrusters (95/65) (one works at a time)
EMOTM 4 burpees (both)

Worked with Augie. We broke it out with burpees (took about 20 seconds), I did 20 seconds of thrusters, then Augie did 20. First round, without burpees, we did 30, then to sets of 4 each at end. Fielding and Zack programming.

8/20 WOD
(Idea is to go light at first, then really work for one rep max.)
Not happy. Worried all the recent weight loss is hurting my strength, since I have 3-repped 120 before.

5 Rounds For Time:
200 M Run
10 M Broad jump
15 Kettle Bell Swing (1.5pd/1pd)
9:49 @ 2 pood

Worried I was struggling so much with kb swings until I realized I grabbed the 2 pood bell instead of the 1.5 pood bell by mistake.

8/22 WOD
15 Min to work up to 3 Rep Max

Given my recent worries about losing strength, I was pleased with this. Full depth. I have 5-repped 235 before, not sure what my 3-rep PR is.

4 Rounds for reps:
1 Min ME double under: 70, 55, 50, 30
1 Min ME wall ball (20#/14#): 17, 15, 13, 11
1 Min ME rope ascent 3, 2, 2, 2
1 Min rest

Forgot to photograph whiteboard, so scores might be a little off, but they are close. Worked out at noon, which always helps my performance.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
great work guys

deb my naming of what we did might have been off but it was wide grip on the bar pulling from the knees, elbows out pulling the bar to collar bone which is a struggle for me due to my shoulder mobility issues hope that explains it better

tonite for time


155lb front squat


20 kg kb sit ups


tomorrow nite is our first nite (a buddy and i went 1/2ers) out in an internation 14' sail racing skiff, i have not sailed since i was 14. this boat has 400 square feet of sail when it is fully rigged and can go up to 60 kph. my buddy who owns the boat has not sailed in 10 years but has assured me he has watched the power point presentation a couple of times so he at least knows how to rig this boat.

should be another interesting nite:pepper:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Kiwi's Running Seminar
800/400 meter post-test

800 m = 3:06 ([url][/url]). Exactly the same as the pre-test, which ****ed me off enough to attack the 400.
400 m = 1:17 ([url][/url]), a four-second PR!

Shin splint on left leg pretty severe before and after the run. Iced the crap out of it this morning, doing better. I have to make up my 1600 m post-test, but otherwise no running until Pier to Peak on 9/2.

8/24 workout

11 a.m. Foundations class. Not a "WOD" strictly speaking but great exercises to strengthen the posterior chain (aka "booty area"). I was dripping sweat by the end.
