Deb,
What weightlifting program are you doing? I'm just wondering what I'll be doing after my on ramp ends in Motown at the end of March.
I was thinking about Starting Strength.

Jim Cordes 02-02-2011 09:36 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
2/2 WOD

Front Squat:
5-3-2-2-1-1
135-175-185-195(f 1 only)-195*-205f
195 is a 10# PR! I totally collapsed at 205; that was just a mind fail, not necessarily a body fail.

Followed by: AMRAP 15
5 Wall Climbs
10 Box Jumps (24/20)
15 KB Swings (1.5pd/1pd)
4 rounds plus wall climbs plus a couple box jumps. Wall climbs are really tiring! You know it's a hard AMRAP when 24" box jumps are the rest interval. Guest appearance from Traver, fun to do front squats with him.

10 minutes of jump roping
Bench Press: 10x45#, 10x135#, 5x200#, 3x225#, 5x250#
Shoulder Press: 10x45#, 5x115#, 3x130#, 2x145#
Ran 1 mile at 7.5 mph on 1% slope
Stretched

Nice easy day. Going skiing tomorrow. Not a good idea to do shoulder press after bench press if you care about your numbers. Probably a good way to give your shoulders and triceps a nice little training jolt though.

Jim,
Where are you skiing? We're going up to Stowe/Sugarbush this weekend.

Jim Colby 02-02-2011 08:17 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Utah....Park City, Alta, Powder Mountain, Snowbird

Stowe and Sugarbush are good mountains. I really like Jay as well. I love the trees.

Jeff Metzger 02-02-2011 09:00 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Oooooh, utah.....luckeeeeeeee!

But Stowe and 'bush along with Jay-it's-just-too-darn-far-Peak are some of my favorites within driving range. And we love to get in the woods.

Bromley, nice little old VT Bromley, has some nice bumpy woods. Plunge is a favorite.

I've only been out West once; we did Vail, Breckenridge and Keystone. Vail's back bowls were just mind boggling, but I'd go back to Keystone first. Breck was a little too crowded and glitzy for my taste.

So, enjoy your trip! How long?

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Wednesday's are my normal Rest day but decided to go in to give some support to a friend (my Pastor) that was going for a 1RM DL Pr. with only 3months of CF under his belt he did great (matched his Previous Weight) I was not feeling 100% as legs were still a little sore from the DL/400m sprint WOD from 1/31 but what the hey I lifted with my Bud and managed a New 1RM of 335#.
Another great CF day!!

Jeff, Shed used to program strength, I got superstrong doing it, but he doesn't anymore. The lifting was what drew me to CF in the first place; I was throwing strength stuff in every once in a while b/c I want to get stronger, now I'm training the Olympic lifts at FDU, tired my numbers weren't moving much and form not getting better. Its snatch, clean, clean & jerk and squatting/accessory work. Trying to fit in CF too.

Starting Strength is good, but I think you'd have to stop crossfit, make a return after you get where you wanna be. This is my dilemma, I like lifting first and foremost but I also like crossfitting. This week I did one metcon, maybe Friday if I feel better. Will have to see how the lifting goes. I am not sure what they do for conditioning.

Motown doesn't post their wods, I guess.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Deb,

By FDU I assume you mean Fairleigh. Which campus? Is it a class you're taking?

And yes, I would be choosing either SS or Crossfit. My thinking is that I've really got to improve my strength. The on ramp I'm doing now is giving me some instruction in most of the lifts SS utilizes, so I could do that on my own at Black Bear or my son's house. Though I'd rather train with a group both for the motivation and form checking.

Get some rest and feel better.

Florham Park. No class. I lift with the Devils and whoever else lifts there, I'm not really sure on that.

Its like $35/mo. to use their gym, and if you need coaching (I do) they charge you a little more till you know what you're doing. You would learn form at FDU!! PM if you want my coach's contact.

And form, well, difficult to learn at CF GROUP b/c the premise is you use lighter weights and worse form – its expected as a result of fatiguing during a workout.

So for form on those lifts, I would say a coach is the way to go. Better off in the long run, I have 2 years of bad habits to break now, to get heavier lifts. Like I said, I would hire Pat or his wife for privates if he had the time but he doesn't right now.
HE IS A GREAT COACH (I REALLY appreciate how good he is now that we have some inexperienced coaches - they're good, don't get me wrong, but they don't yet have a feel for each athlete, nor cue the same way Pat would - Im spoiled here, because Pat/J9 been cueing me for 2 years!! knows my strengths/weaknesses well :D)

Hey Jeff,

Just my .02

There are a few really good protocols to follow for strength, SS being one of them.

One that I would HIGHLY recommend is Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 program. It is simple and if you work it hard enough, highly effective for relatively quick strength gains.

There's an e-book you can buy if you google it or you can just find the basic plan by googling it.

I would also recommend getting a coach for form, especially before or when you undertake a serious strength program. Heavy dead lifting and squats are not something you want to fool around with.

Jim Cordes 02-03-2011 09:51 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
2/3 WOD

Jerk Balance 3-3-3

95-115(split jerk)-125(split jerk)
Not feeling hugely strong today, so I was satisfied with these numbers, but surprised there were so low as compared to my regular jerk.

Followed by:
400 M Run
20 Turkish Get Ups
400 M Run
20 Deadlifts (85% of 1RM)
400 M Run
20 Chest to Bar Pull Ups

19:31 at 30# TGU's and 255# D/L's and regular pull ups. Seems like I always say this, but this was a hard one! Started TGU's at 35#, but form was terrible, so went down to 30# and still struggled, especially with the left-handed ones. Similarly, 255# D/L's were really heavy! Had to do them one at a time from the very first one.

Just Claw and the girls this morning (Hogans/Luciano, Amber, Fanie, and JJ). Very fun!

Weightlifting FDU[/B]
OMG what a day, still sick this am, got my period so my low back was already a misery. Ouchie!! And, I feel like I'm living in Alaska. An accident on every road I took, 46, 10, 287, 24.... I WAS LATE! So it was a quickie workout with Pete tonite....just as well, I pbly shouldve rested. Pete attacks my weaknesses and makes me fix them. Nick also does that, but Pete is touchy-feely and physically MAKE you do it right with just a bar if necessary. If my elbows are too far down, and not pointing in - he fixes it, physically!

All remedial & positional work! All fixing my form, poor guy (he asked me, did they TEACH you this at that place??!) haha no not really, but apparently every lift we do is not quite right. Its too confusing!

Im kinda leaning toward when in Rome (Crossfit clean/Oly clean. CF snatch/oly snatch. Otherwise Id have to scale all my weight way back to do it Oly correct at CF and be doing something diff from everyone else :()

Warmup:
Backsquat to Press Overhead to OHS w/bar

1x7x20k
1x6x20k

[B]Front Squat[/B]
These sucked! Got better but need a lot of work; he was teaching me the correct arm/rack/back positions (putting his hands on me and PUTTING me there) and explaining gotta EXPLODE up from the bottom push thru heels. Slow is frowned upon.
1x6x20
1x7x20
1x8x22
1x7x22
[B]Liftoff to Below the Knee[/B]
2x6x22
3x6x32
[B]Press[/B]
These, he was trying to get my arms right and explaining I have to punch the weight up and back explosive as possible and tight tight tight, no softness in the arms at all.
3x10x15

That was it!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
for those of you who got walloped by the snow storm out here on the west coast of canada some of the spring bulbs are starting to bloom and it was plus 6 c. yesterday. just saying....

tomorrow is going to be my 1st day back at the box for a regular workout day.

i stuggled the last week with some after surgery blues, being run down and sick and talking with my phyiso and another health care provider.

that i am going to need to except that i am never going to get 100% rom back that i will not be able to continue powerlifting due to some of the weights and the position the lifts put my shoulder in. i can not get proper form for the scarecrow and shoulder shrug.

that i quite possibly will not be able to rock climb because of having to reach overhead in weird positions. nor be able to mountain bike the way i used to due to the constant movement the bumps on the trials create for the back part of my shoulder.

that being said i talked to the owner of the gym last nite for an hour or so and i left there feeling 110% better than i did prior to the talk.

unbeknownst to me jessie (gym owner) had a buddy of mine make a zurker squat rack which he just finished last nite, ordered a saftey squat bar. both things that will make my time at the gym so much better. blew me away that he took that upon his self to do that for me.

we spoke at length about my feeling like a "special needs" client for the forseeable future in that there will be quite possibly a bunch of the wod's that i will be unable to do and that i did not want to be a burden to them or the rest of the gym.

we left it with jessie saying "if you are willing to do the work and put in the time to your recovery i am willing to do whatever it will take on our part to make that happen." i could have not asked for a better ending to what i thought prior to starting the conversation was going to end with me leaving the gym.

also prior to this conversation i did not know jessie lost 2 years to a major shoulder injury, surgery and rehab. the professionals told him that he would not be able to ever do a bunch of things again. he proved them wrong and i guess it is now up to me to prove them wrong as well.

so one more day off due to a previous commitment and then signed in for the 9 a.m. class saturday morning.

It was no big deal. I scaled to 45#, did these slowly resetting on each one - but I hit every one low, pain in the a$$, literally, getting up from the last of the first and second sets. No misses, had two or three bad catches that were a little forward but saved them. I thought I looked pretty good, considering two weeks ago when Pat first taught me, plus only practicing off the blocks at FDU! Still struggling with the flexibility issue low back and shoulders (I know @ FDU Id be told to get even more vertical; and they would tell me, now do it fast) but happy with this, def. getting better and stronger out of the bottom. L pullups need work the first few of all sets were fine. Became singles quickly, barely making them.

WOW what a first day back at the gym.

spent the 1st 1/2 streching and working on mobility. something i never really paid to much attention to in the past. now i guess it is a reality.

then did 1-1-1 front squat with the squat rack brace thing that jessie and a friend of mine welded up. 225-245-255 with absoutly no pressure at all on my shoulder.

what a mental pick me up today was. plus the support i got from everybody at the gym. and that is what makes crossfit so special.....cause if i was going to a globo gym no body would have given a ****!

thank you crossfit for the community that you are.

Hi. I'm not in ANY way trying to take away from this thread.. but I spend most of my time on Facebook rather than mainsite, and as an extension of that, created the Cougie Power Workout Logs... just a place for each of us to have our own thread and log workouts.

Come on Over if you want! It's really meant as a board for workout logs.. I am sure that discussion will take place much more here and on FB.

"Cougie" refers to women 40+ who prove daily in the box that "age is just a number". It has nothing to do with liking younger men....

but if you do, rawr! :)

John, in theory it was a way to get some of the 40+ women on facebook to start logging workouts.

In practice?

All are welcome!

I am going to use it daily as a way to stay accountable. I find it's easy to "forget" to come here and post, while it's harder for me to avoid something I've created. I don't know if that makes sense, but if you are ADD at all.. you get it. :)

Funny thing, two weeks ago I managed my 1st rope climb, today it was much, much easier. Little did I realize just how much those climbs would torch my shoulders for the remainder of the WOD. I started with 45# on the barbell snatch and had to drop to the empty bar after the first 5 reps. :yikes: Humbling to say the least.

[B]Michelle[/B], snatching the bar from the floor isn't easy! You know, no plates to position the start....I find them a PITA!!
FWIW on stringing kipping pullups together, the key for me is pushing the bar AWAY at the top. Just push yourself straight back and let yourself go down from there, you'll be set up for the next kip. Hope that helps :) & strong work!!

I showed my coach some CF pix of stuff we do (OHS, FS) and he said, "Throw these pictures out. Erase them from your mind. Both have flaws that you do not." (I always wonder, because I can't SEE what I'm doing, don't know if I look like the other weightlifters or not). I didn't ask any other Q's, I know he'd say, just lift.
He said I have more power than he thought. He thinks I could snatch 50kg, with good technique. I wonder if he can get my PC higher, I think thats already higher than I've done (w/good technique). I think today's OHS is more than I've done, (correctly) as well. I had one miss in there, got the bar too far forward on the way up.
I was tired because SB party last nite, ate like crap - but I still felt like I had more in me. Happy with this!

2/8 WOD

Press 3-3-3-3
95-105-115f(2 only)-110
A little off my best, which is 3 x 115#. Taped my wrists because of the presses plus cleans later in the WOD, which is a good idea.

Followed by: 3 Rounds for Time
12 Power Cleans (135#/95#)
50 Double Unders
400 M Run
60 Seconds Rest

17:36 @ 125#. I normally scale 135# to 115# for clean WODs, but tried 125# today. Not able to do all 12 straight at any point. My form was pretty sloppy. The added weight made the WOD challenging. As usual, double unders were the bottleneck. Not to make excuses, but I think a good jump rope would help a lot. It will be nice when the sizing ropes come in so I can try a good one and get it sized right.

We started the WOD with some shoulder/lat mobility work, which was nice. Hard to say if it helped my performance, however.
