Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@rowers, Strokes/minute is critical. Everyone goes too fast using inefficient strokes. 18 spm, where every pull is purposeful and powerful is the way to go, especially at our age... And yes, do the 2k tests on a series of different days, doing two at most on the same day.

Walked 2.5 miles uphill on the treadmill (@10%)

5x45 back squat
20x135 back squat

Back squats are much harder after walking 2.5 miles uphill!

Claw - Words can't express...:shrug: What you wrote on FB was an awesome tribute.

Cliff - Thanks! I felt brutalized after that WOD!

JT - You're so right about focusing on Strokes/Min. Doing that helped my rowing!

Pat - Enjoy the Family Stuff! (Nice Chipper in an AMRAP!)

[B]At base Globo:
.3333333333mi run
100 SUs
10 Leg Swings
10 Air Squats
10 Push Ups
10 Pull Ups
10 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
10 sit ups
1 headstand
10 22# Presses

Open 12.4/13.3 (Scaled):
150 Dumbbell Thrusters (20# DB each hand)
90 DUs
30 MUs


[I]The base Globo does not allow hitting wall balls against the wall. :mad: Hence, I scaled to 20# DB's, They were easier to do in subsets of 10, then 5 for the last 50. I had about 2 min left and I couldn't jump, so the DB Thrusters were effectively as bad as the WBs. All the DU practice I've been doing helped, though not as much since I could barely jump. I was glad I did improve from a year ago.[/I]

3/27 WOD
Skill Session: SFG Kettlebell Swing
Mika did a good job explaining this complicated movement.

4 rounds of:
200m Farmers Carry
50 Double Unders
1:00 Plank hold on rings
Used 1 pood on Farmer's Carry and still only able to do first 200 meters unbroken. Only first plank hold unbroken too. On the other hand, double unders got progressively better. Final set done with only one break.

At least it's a good view. (Yes Lake Erie is still frozen)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
great work all

went to vancouver yesterday and had a complete body scan done.

30.2% body fat....not sure quite what to think of that does give me a base line to check in with in 10 weeks when we (the gym) is done with its food challenge....

there are 9ish of us on a 10 week clean eating ect....plan being sheperaded by jesse our coach.....we all did fight gone bad 2 or so weeks ago and not we are going to use this body scan and fight gone bad numbers as out benchmarks so in 10 weeks we will do both over again and see who has the best % improvement in both numbers.....

gonna be a great 10 weeks starting sunday
