Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Andrew - the antagonism between CrossFitters and non-CrossFitters doesn't do any good IMHO. Do hard work!

Patrick - Awesome WOD! I dread WODs with "rest" in them!!

100+ SUs
10 Leg Swings on each leg in both directions
10 Air Squats
10 Frog Holds
10 Pushups

1 Mile run
100 Burpees
1600 m row
100 KBS, 1,5 Pood, Russian


What a slogfest! A slow run, slower Burpees, and a slow row. My forearms were smoked! Yay! Burpees!!

Run 400M then 2 Rounds
10 Push-ups
10 Air-squats
10 Cradle-rocks

[B]Skills- Pick a gymnastics skill to work on for 15 min[/B]
I worked on "pistols", I had not done these in q while. I am getting better, I can almost to an official pistol. I practice by going as low as possible without falling on my ***, before standing up. When I get as low as I should, I end up on my Kiester!! I think I'm within 2-4 inch's of making them with both legs.

21-18-15-12-9 reps for time of:
Row for calories
Thrusters, 95/65 (55lb for me today….)
Got in 14:29…… I think I should have went up in weight on the thrusters…..

Oh my goodness, I saw on FB that JT passed away. Is this for real or some kind of joke? JT, please, are you OK?

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
My friend and training partner, JT Kalnay, passed away last night. We last trained together on Sunday. As usual, JT was full of life and looking forward to competing at this year's Arnold in O-lifting. He will be greatly missed by me and many others. I have many great memories of the time we spent together. I will cherish them always.
