Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hey gang . Have missed a bunch of workout and posting. Spent last week in Venice Beach/St. Monica area. Went to one box, Paradiso Crossfit. Nice place and good coaching.

Notice the WOD's there are same pattern as Tribal. Some standing movements to stretch, then some dynamic stretching (Monster walk, RDL, Spiderman crawl, etc.), Then some gymnastic work with negatives: push ups, pull ups, TTB, etc. Then a strength component which varies everyday and then finally the WOD. Makes the hour go by very fast.

I am generally only posting the WOD----but there is allot of other work. Working the negatives or holding position at the bottom,etc. are included in the strength also.

WOD today was 7 rounds of 7 snatches @95 # and 7 pull ups. I stopped after 6R at 12:30. I was just not recovering.

Wendler 5/3/1
Month 5, Week 3
Squat Day

OHS W/Oly bar


OHS w/Oly Bar
Front Squats w/Oly bar
Janda Crunches with 10 lb. plate extended overhead
30" box jumps

1RMs at the end of Month 5

Shoulder Press 140 (5 lb. gain this month)
Dead Lift 335 (no gain this month)
Bench Press 235 (no gain this month)
Squat 290 (10 pound gain this month)

Disappointed that DL and BP did not go up, first month they haven't. Think it's due to dietary restriction and some personal stress. Very happy with squat gains, I probably had another rep at 265 today but was performing the set outside a rack.

Deload week starts Saturday, then on to Month 6.

Wed-Thur-Fri (Trip To Minnesota)

Consumed approximately 27,500 calories of ice cream.

Didn't exercise at all, not even once, didn't even consider it.

7/13 Workout @ Bacara

A. Seated dumbell press, 5 reps, 4 sets
35-40-45-50(total fail)-45
Really wanted to arch my back, had to work hard to keep neutral spine.

B. Broomstick Mile
25 Back Squats
25 Front Squats
25 Overhead Squats
Run 400 meters
25 Shoulder Press
25 Push Press
25 Push-Jerk
Run 400 meters
50 Squat Cleans
Run 400 meters
50 Snatches
Run 400 meters

19:30 approx. with 8# bar and treadmill run at 1.0 incline.

Running splits got faster and faster as I upped speed on treadmill from 7.0 to 7.5 to 8.0 to 8.5 by the end. Treadmill always takes a little bit to get up to speed which slowed me a little.

Tried to keep all bar movements unbroken, just took a couple short beats off tempo on squat cleans and snatches. Split were roughly 2:40 (75 squats), 1:52 (75 presses), 3:08 (squat cleans), 3:05 (power snatches).

Some former MLB player was in the workout room while I was there; he looked at me like I was nuts. That’s what I’m talking about baby!
