Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
7/23 Endurance WOD
Warm up jog to Mesa Lane Stairs
6 reps Mesa Lane Stairs (220 stairs, 150' climb)
Warm up jog back to car.

7/24 WOD
"Steak and Potatoes"
Front Squats (135/95)

5:52 @ 95#.
Was on the fence about coming in this morning, tried a couple practice reps at 135# and decided to scale way back. (Still conflicted on this, but I think it was mostly about ego and doing the Performance WOD's as Rx'd, so I think I made the correct decision even if did not include choosing the wrench). Sets of 21 and 9 front squats straight through, broke 15 half way through. Pull ups went poorly, sets of not more than 5.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Seems like I am always learning something about myself or crossfit the longer that I am in it. Went yesterday and my groin felt like it would tear apart---perhaps because I hadn't worked out or stretched in 3 days. So I came to the conclusion that I'd better stretch on days I do not go to Tribal.

Got up around 5 AM today and decided that it was just as easy to go to Tribal at 6AM and stretch. Which is what I did. I did the WOD, but with scales and lighter weights and feel good right now. I joked with the coach that I came for the stretching and had not committed, in my own head, to work out beyond that!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Sounds like your last couple of days were a crusher! Awesome stuff.... I hate lateral burpees, sends my knee into an uproar! ( old age lol)

My snatches yesterday were absolutely pathetic, my coach had an almost disgusted look on his face.... I will get them if it kills me!!! Problem is with shoulder mobility, my chest and front delts/ lats are unproportionately overdeveloped and I just can't lock my arms back far enough so I'm doing tons of stretching and mobility work

Made me set a new goal: by 7/2014 ( one year from now) I will:

Correctly snatch my body weight
Correctly preform 10 OHS @ 75% body weight
Get over my fear of breaking my neck and correctly preform 10 HSPU
STRING 5 25' rope climbs together
String 30 DU together

I will do this or die trying!!!! So in posting it to make it official!!!!:kicking0::evilsmile
