8/30 WOD

“Hold on for dear life”
Teams of 2, for time:
50 burpees while teammate holds top of deadlift (225#/135#)
60 KBS (1.5pd/1pd) while teammate holds Kettle Bell in goblet squat
50 Pullups while partner holds chin over pullup bar (supine)
60 Tire sledges while holds plate in lockout position (25#/15#)

Worked with Dan Tobin and we crushed this WOD! Traded burpees on the 10's (5 each last set), KBS on the 10's, pull ups on the 5's (except Dan did one set of 10), and sledge hammers on the 20's. One of the funnest WOD's I've done in a while.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I just turned 52, would like to start Xfit, will have to do it at home( not in budget to sign up anywhere) I have some equipment, dumbbells and such so I'd be doing a lot of subtituting and building of some items. Any recomendations for start up programs? I found some but I'm not really sure how to work my way up to doing WOD's and finding substitutions for the workouts I can't do at home. I've been working out a little already some jogging do a little weights but nothing seems to motivate me like Xfit and I want to do it right. Any suggestions would help, thanks.:)

Welcome David!

As far as scaling goes, I suggest this website (WFS) [url][/url]

It posts the main site WOD with a video demonstrating how to do it as prescribed (aka "Rx'd") and then in the comments, users [B]Garddawg[/B] or [B]BlueBugofJustice[/B] post the scaling, which usually includes links to exercise videos, common substitutions and other helpful information.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
claw sounds like a super fun work out. i really like doing workout in teams

welcome david just an idea from a buddy of mine who got me started in xfit. he has slowly built up quite a home gym bit by bit and spends most his days working out there but he also comes into the squamish crossfit gym once a week for coaching and to keep in touch with what is going on.

last nite

speed frisbee golf (the 3 of us would throw and then run to the frisbee and throw again) as it is getting way to dark to see in the woods with the change of the season. took us about 1/2 the time it normaly would and we actually did work up a good sweat. good sweat and frisbee golf generaly don't go in the same sentance but it did last nite.
