Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Good luck to all of you competing in the Open! Wishing you all great results.

02/19/2012 Erin

Warmup: 90 sec single unders, Abmat situps, Back extensions, ring rows, assist ring dips

Workout: (Puppies -)
20# DB split cleans X 15 reps
Lat Pulldowns (45#) X 21 reps

Cash out: shoulder press 3 X 20 reps X 30#, back squats 45, 135, 165, 205 X 5 reps, internal and external rotation (shoulders) DB swings, RC physical therapy

Not 100% but feeling better than yesterday with my post-flu recovery. Shoulder was not tolerating overhead movements or assist pull-ups well so I scaled the weights back and increased the reps. That seems to be a better approach for the rehab.

[B]Alden,[/B] INTERNAL rotation? hip? What do you do for hip mobility?[/QUOTE]

I've been doing the shoulder internal rotation exercises that just appeared in the 3 part series on My shoulder injury and the subsequent rehab pointed out a lack of mobility that I needed to work on.

For hip mobility, I started doing the exercises Kelly S demo'ed in "Executive Stretching" (Crossfit Journal video) and another video that recently appeared "2/2 Squat Cycle" on You use a chair or the wall to anchor your shin vertically (knee down) and then work to straighten the torso and open the hip. A variation is to use the wall and the non-anchored leg in a sort of lunge to stretch things.

75-95-115-135-155 (PR)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
oh yeah. I do those all the time. the one he does like a lunge with the band, I do it holding my calf pressed to my hamstring (like in the wall one), can get real close to the floor; move my leg sideways to get a different emphasis.
for knees, I also stretch adductors, and roll them, ITB TFL hams calves, all of it.
I always feel my lower back bones moving; external rotation on my right hip is really compromised w/me.

Took me forever to figure out that hold bottom of squat, pushing elbows against knees? Was really supposed to be elbows more on my upper inner thighs, heels wider, to stretch my HIPS out. Duh! and OMG it hurts...

WTG FS PR... :)
