Back Squat Day

Had to wait a couple of days after DL day cuz I was SOOOOO sore in my hamstrings, glutes and groin. Also skipped bench press day due to strange weakness, soreness and limited ROM in both shoulders (especially my left) which I am self-diagnosing as some kind of pinched nerve(s) due to sleeping on a bad, old mattress. Anyone with any suggestions as to an optimal replacement, please fire away. I am a side sleeper, I go about 215 and my discomfort/pressure spots are typically my shoulders, upper back or neck.

I am right now looking at either a gel/memory foam or latex/foam mattress.

Anyway . . . today



OHS w PVC and a couple of 5 lb. plates x 25

Back is still tweaked, made it until 3pm without cramping. Am going to go out for a one mile very easy walk with my walking stick.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Pat - STILL, a 5 min Fran is quite an accomplishment!! Awesome!!

Alden - Nice work! Hope you had a great time in the Big Easy!! :D

Great Squat work JJ. Sorry I can't help on a bed. I'm use an OLD one myself!

JT - Take it easy. Back injuries are nothing to sneeze at. I pull my lower right back muscle in 1990, and it's STILL weak - and I can feel it at times!! Hope you heal fast.

400m run
2 rounds:
10 push ups
8 pull ups
15 Squats
15 AbMat sit ups

10 min (give or take) to find 3 Rep Max DL

135#, 225#, 315#, 335# (PR for a 3 Rep Max!)

“Swinging Annie”

Double Unders

Kettlebell Swing, 53#/35#


Scaled to SUs


[I]Did the heaviest DLs in the class! 2nd heaviest on the board. Funny, 335# felt easier than 315#. Would've liked to have gone heavier, but we ran out of time.

Annie with the KBSs was an interesting beast. Kept the KBSs to subsets of ~10. They were a REAL drag and since my last SU Annie was ~7 min, they added 10 min. Still, I finished 1st in the class & 3rd on the board. It was a good WOD compared to yesterday!! [/I]

Another rest day for my back, with a little walking and stretching.

My friend Megan said "I flipped a tire and I liked it", which made me think of Katy Perry's "I kissed a girl and I liked it." The result appears below...

5/2 Skills/ Mobility Day

Decided to follow JT's lead and put some emphasis on mobility issues.

Shoulder, t-spine, lower back mobility
Pistol practice - ankle flexibility and balance
Front squats - shoulder ROM and body position
Thrusters - transition from the rack position to the overhead lift
Pull-ups - dead hang, shoulders back, full ROM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff - I know the feeling. Nice AMRAP!

JT - If I had 1/10th your creativity!!:rofl:

JJ - I can relate to Benching without a Spotter! Enjoy the hill Sprints!

Alden - Good plan! Mobilizing always helps!

[B]WU: (At the base Globo!)[/B]
500m row
100 SUs
DU practice
2 sets of box jumps ~24"+


Run 800 m
15 Front Squats (135/75)

*5 burpee (Yay! Burpees!!) penalty for putting the bar down

Scaled to 80# & 3 RFT:

[I]Thought scaling the weight would be a good plan since Monday was so tough. Runnng was the tough part & the 80# FS were easy. Had to Clean them, which was the worst due to my shoulder. My knee was feeling it & I figured to DNF so as to fight another day!! ;)[/I]
