7 Minute AMRAPof Burpees:

Nice easy pace got 80. 73 in the open last spring. I think I can hit 90 if I bust it.

8/25 WOD
Day 4 Daisy
5 HSPU's
10 Box Jumps (24"/20")
Rest 2:
5 Deadlifts (225#)
10 Pullups
Rest 2:
5 Burpees
10 Double Unders
Rest 2:
1 Min Row for Max Calories

Total 292. That number seems high, but I also know I cranked out a lot of reps. Thanks to Amber for teaching me to "kip" up from HSPU's -- I got a lot of rounds there, maybe 7. Deadlifts were the clear bottleneck as they were slow and also killed the pull ups. Burpees and doubleunders went fast, all rounds of double unders straight through except one. 22 cal in minute of rowing, which is a ton for me.

8/26 WOD
Kiwi's Endurance Seminar (make up from last Tuesday)
"Mile" run post-test. (Actually 1600M+ (4 x 400M from Lane 5) run.)

6:58. ([url][/url])
This is a 19-second PR from pre-test. Totally happy with this! According to the Garmin, did the mile in 6:22.5.

8/27 WOD
Overhead Squats
Last 135 felt strong, wish there was more time to try for 145. MikeMacSB was incredible and Augie broke 200#!

Double Unders

Quite a bit off my PR. Shin splints in left leg really painful. After doing 50 fast double unders, I struggled on all subsequent rounds. Augie was amazing this morning, getting on the board twice; a 205# OHS and then setting the first sub-6 Annie time in the gym. That should remain on the leaderboard for a while. Thinking about taking a training break to heal leg in time for P2P on Sunday.

5 rounds for time:

5 pull-ups (two small purple bands)
5 push-ups
10 abmat sit-ups
5 push-ups
5 pull-ups
10 air squats
run 400 M


I have been putting together a lot of WODs with low rep sets like this. It is a method of scaling so I don't do any movement to failire. If I go to failure I end up finsihing the workout with one or two reps at a time and the time just runs too long. (Sorry for not posting more regularly.)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Jack - Nice Job!! Been thinking of trying 12.1 again. My buddy told me that when we did it most folks went out full bore & got 20 done the 1st minute and died out. He said if you could be a little slower & tried to do 15, you would get 100. Consistancy is the key!

Oh, yeah, Yay! Burpees!!

"The Other" Bill H - Looks like an impressive WOD & time to me! My 1st rule is "Don't Hurt Yourself!!"

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
the bulgarian split squat is despised by all of us at the gym. usually because it is programed in after either dead lift or squats.

the first time we saw them we thought "oh great our coach was thinking again" and then we found out he was reading his russian weightlifting manuals again.

last nite

12 minute amrap

4 20 lb ball slam
8 20 lb dbell tri extension
12 45lb plate overhead lunges

6 1/3 rounds

Jim Cordes 08-29-2012 12:23 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
8/29 WOD
4 Rounds for Time:
30 Mountain Climbers
20 Knees to Elbows
10 Plyo Pushups
30 Jump Lunges
20 Presses (45#/33#)
10 Kettle Bell Swings (2pd/1.5pd)

This was slower than it appears on the whiteboard. Other than my first set of 30 mountain climbers and all sets of 10 plyo push ups, I had to break everything up. There was really no "active rest" component, although I laid on my chest and stomach for a brief moment between push ups. Modified the warm up run to a slow 500M row in deference to my shin splints. (I think this is my first injury-caused modification in three years of doing Crossfit.) Link to whiteboard (WFS): [url][/url]
