Good work Gents. Cliff another 10K Row, I have yet to go 10K.

YOGA tonight, my third session, New movements and working on the breathing. Still figuring it out and trying to keep up. I think I'll need to give Yoga a 10-12 session "try".

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Good workouts here again:
Awsome rowing Cliff..43:35 for 10k is very motivational for best is 45min...have you ever tried the half marathon?
Patric: that "marston" wod seemed interesting..

Yesterday evening:
Rear delt rows+hold with rubber-band 4x10reps
WOD: amrap 30min
Sit-ups 10reps
Sumo dead's with 32kg KB 10reps
Pullups (underhand grip) 5reps
13 rounds
Rubber band tricep pushdowns and overhead extensions 6x10reps

Wod's 13rounds...did not push to the limit, idea was to work steady all the way, was a good wod.
I got unbroken 5reps of pullups in the first 8 rounds, then 4+1 and only on the last round 3+1+1 im satisfied of those.
Sumo deadlifts seems to be a good exercise for bad knees..slowly down focusing on the muscles then faster upwards..tensing extra on the quads at the top :)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cool stuff guys!! Way to go on that bench PR, Cliff! Patrick, have you read Kelly Starrett's book "Being a Supple Leopard"? He talks about lifting, mobilization, and being able to do yoga. Jan, I really like SDHPs using kettle bells. Nice job on those AMRAPs!
