Cindy with burpees? AWESOME!!!!

Tuesday June 4, 2013

3 mile walk at a brisk pace.

3 minutes AMRAP, 3 minutes rest:
TGUS, 3 each side
burpees, 29
presses 45#, 56
kbs 20#, 60
bench presses 45#, 110

It comes as no surprise that the biggest movements (tgus, burpees) had the lowest reps and the smallest movement (bench press) had the highest reps. Big movements through a long range take a lot more force and energy. Small movements through a small range take less force and energy. That's why I like to program the big movements (e.g, burpee muscle up, burpee pullup, burpee snatch).

and now for 4 days off the regionals are in b.c. this weekend and all the gym staff and coaches are off to that.

i have a buddy coming into town tomorrow afternoon that i played football with in high school. and have remianed friends all these years. his only comment when i asked him what he wanted to do for the 3 days when he was here was "i want to be so tired that when i get to my conference on monday i sleep through the first day".

so challenge acepted.....road bike ride for him friday afternoon. then up early saturday couple hour hike then a couple hour mountain bike ride (i will miss this but some friends will take him out. i could use the break i am sure :D) then off to whistler for dinner at my parents and a road ride back to squamish to be finished off with a going away party for some good friends i met through crossfit. then sunday morning "breakfast in the bluffs" which is beginner climbing before they get to crowded then a rousing game of frisbee golf and off to vancouver to drop him off but not before a 10ish km ride on the crusier bikes around the sea wall at stanley park.

i just want him to see what a "normal" weekend in squamish is like and for some people that is pretty close. bike ride, parties, climbing, hiking, golf.....sounds pretty perfect summer weekend.....

i just found out that in some gov't report we are considered the youngest age population for a town our size in canada :pepper::pepper: i guess maybe i can relive my youth :rofl:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Thanks for the kind words everyone.

6/6 WOD
A1. Box Squat, 31X2, 3-4 reps, 4 sets, 3:00 rest
185-225-225-245(3 only), to 18' box with Abmat

"The Cindy Experiment"
5 Pullups
10 Pushups
15 Squats
2:00 work/2:00 rest for 5 rounds total (20:00)
12 rounds + 5 pull ups + 3 push ups.

My normal Cindy PR is 16, so this experiment showed me how much improvement I can get with a little planned rest built in. All sets straight through. Big class this morning, it was fun.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Great work, everyone! I'm always inspired as I read your posts. Keeps me going back into the gym when things are "creaky" (which is most mornings).

Cliff - You are definitely living the dream. Jan and I are planning a m/c trip to Canada in the next year or two. I'll have to convince her that we are adding Squamish to the itinerary!

1 mile dog walk
Bench 45 X10/ 95, 110, 135 X5
Turkish/ Husky Get-Ups 25# X20. The dogs thought this was another game to play with Daddy so many of my reps included one or two dogs chewing on my arms or standing on my chest. :)
