[QUOTE=Helen M Brennan;1045871]we have a few over 50 at CF brisbane. I am the oldest at the 12 midday group, there is a gentleman who has more life experience than i in an earlier group... he is awsome.

we have a masters WOD on Fridays and have our own facebook page, plus have just arranged our own T-shirts.. because we are all so awsomely cool ( as well as modest :D) youngsters are now asking to join.. foolish creatures wishing the years away like that..

still the "Old Dogs" have the ability to learn new tricks


:rofl: Love it! It was just a year ago that I did my 1st headstand. Something I could NEVER do in my youth!! I feel CrossFit has gotten me in the best shape of my life!

BTW I'd REALLY like to snag one of those T-shirts!! :D

JB - You are the man! Awesome job!!!

Tim- Is your wife challenging you?!?!

Tim, Cliff - What's this "Snow" you speak of? My buddy in Montreal told me it hit 80 this week.

Jack - Hope you feel better! Had a bug like that several weeks ago. 36 hours of being useless!

400m run
20ft High Knees
20ft Butt Kickers
20ft Walking Lunges
20ft Spidermans
20ft Hip openners
20ft Hip Closers

Mobility Stuff [I]REALLY Helped!![/I]


Open WOD 12.5
90# Thruster/C2B Ladder:
3 Barbell Thrusters
3 Chest to bar Pull-ups
6 Barbell Thrusters
6 Chest to bar Pull-ups
9 Barbell Thrusters
9 Chest to bar Pull-ups

29 reps

[I]So disappointed. Last year, I did 39. 10# less yet 10 reps less. The Thrusters were easy. Could've done them all day. Couldn't get my C2B Pull Ups, which I had last year!!
Doing Angie yesterday didn't help either. That's my story & I'm stickin to it!![/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Managed 62reps on 12.5 this morning and was totally spent at the end! :yikes: I taped the daylights out of my wrist and it kinda hindered my ability to rack properly in the squat (not an excuse) because that darn weight got heavy as heck due to my lack of consistant proper technique to keep the bar moving up! The Chest to bar's were my strong point as I was able to do them unbroken until the last round.

William--I am with you it is always great to read both John B's and Pat Q.'s posts--those guys ARE THE EPITOME OF mature fitness!!

and yes my wife is challenging me! (she gave me know pity after todays "thruster WOD") after I scaled the same WOD for her yesterday (guessing that we would be doing thrusters/and Pull-ups)---she suggested I "quite whining and take the garbage out and down to the road!:ranting2:---She rowed 1k, did 30 minutes of Pilates and rowed another 1k while I was laying on the floor gasping for air after 7min!!:rofl:

Jack, hope you are sleeping when this posts and have kicked that bug!

Helen, You are right on! I get a lot of opportunities to laugh at myself (like yesterday when I came out of the restroom and (luckily noticed) that I had my favorite workout shirt on "inside out and backwards" and was thinking to myself that "I must have gained some muscle mass as my shirt didn't fit like the last time I wore it":confused::confused:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers!

Feeling better today but not 100%.

Got a good night of medicated sleep. Light work today followed by 12.5 tomorrow.

You folks are always an inspiration.

3/23 WOD

CrossFit Open WOD 12.5
AMRAP 7 Minutes
3 Thrusters (100#/65#)
3 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
6 Thrusters (100#/65#)
6 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
9 Thrusters
9 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
And onward for the whole 7 minutes.

65 (Four rounds plus 5 thrusters). (2 or 3 no-reps on C2B.)
This is six reps better than last year, but I think I have more in the tank. I have never redone an Open WOD but think I might redo this one tomorrow morning. Way too much rest. Link to whiteboard (WFS): [url][/url]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Jack, I hope this post finds you feeling better. Honestly, if you have a fever, rest. That competitive spirit is so strong in each of us that it is a life long struggle to master it. I am still a work in progress. When I had my MI doing the Amazing Grace in the Barbells for Boobs benefit, I realized that I need to find some new operating gears. My crossfit buddies and coaches have helped me start to rebuild my strength and get my endurance back.

Deadlift day: 3X 360, 395, 445.
Assist: 5X10X265.
5X10 Knees to elbow on rings.

Walk 2 miles.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Helen - Nice CF Total!! Congrats on the BS PB!! Outstanding on 12.5 too!! Liked your Thursday Workout too!! :D My problem with going to a non CF setting is all the questions people (AKA "the Straits") ask WHILE I'm doing a WOD or stuff like Handstands, etc. ("What are you doing?!?! What are you doing?!?")

Claw - What a beast!!

Jack - Listen to Pat!! GREAT advice!!

400 m run
3 rounds
10 Push Ups
10 KBS (24 kg)
10 Air Squats

"The other Total"
Max rep:
Clean (Power or Squat)
Bench Press

155# Clean
225# Bench
115# OHS

[I]Felt kinda ragged today. Still blaming "Angie". :D Tried to Clean 175, but couldn't get it. BP was tough. My balance on the OHS was off. Ended up dropping it on my water bottle, destroying it. That water bottle had sentimental value, since it was the one my buddy, roberts, snuck the plastic cockroach into..[/I]

Best of luck on 12.5!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Jack, glad you are feeling stronger, I too hope to redo 12.5 tomorrow (evening) if I can get a few more together to make it worth turning on the lights. Went in this morning to test my legs and Arms and found out I was pretty tight still (went for a 3 mile run this afternoon) and it felt pretty good!
I applaude all that completed all the open workouts Rx giving it all they have and feeling good about whatever they posted!!--

Nice work Helen!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!
