Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
[QUOTE]I did the last rep or two with the bar fully on my left shoulder/pectoral muscle. By the last set it finally clicked that keeping my chest up would help keep the pressure off my quads.[/QUOTE]

I didnt understand this. I have the same problem, keeping your back tight/chest up. what did you realize to do to make it better? (125# is a heavy front squat to rep for me).

Don't you WANT the weight completely on your delts/collarbone? Thats why its so much easier for me to jerk/front squat from a rack rather than from a clean - I can get the bar tucked way back and racked on my delts better - a clean I sometimes wont catch it far back enough, gotta jump a bit when I recover to rack it good for a jerk....
the quad part; you meant low back/hands/wrists?
(Ill share the other tip I got, keep your whole hand on the bar not fingertips, b/c then you can push up on bar, drive elbows up to help you drive out of the hole)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Deb, I did not consider it a problem that the bar was off my hand and fully on my shoulder, just a little odd. It crossed my mind that if the bar starting rolling forward there really would be nothing I could do to stop it.

The cue to get my chest was counting for my partner and watching as she slowly tipped forward through her reps. She tried to compensate by craning her neck up. We talked about it after she was done and just concentrating on it probably did the trick. That, and I focused on it during the lightest reps so it was easiest.

Thanks for the tip of keeping the whole hand on the bar, not just the fingertips. Unfortunately, with my shoulder mobility (or lack thereof) it's all I can do to keep my fingers on the bar as I focus on my primary goal, keeping my elbows up.

Thanks for your comments, you are a great resource here!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
ohhhh.... that shoulder mobility comes easier for me if I use a wider clean grip and point my elbows in (toward each other). But I have long tentacle arms. Also helps if I roll my lats/teres/back.

The DB Squat Cleans were tough, but I did the last 10 in two sets of 5! The only way I got through them by remembering it was a Hero WOD![/I]

Thanks all! Always a lot of encouragement with this group

Felt good enough to go in this morning couldn't miss the opportunity to do a WOD that demanded I do DU's:D

DETERMINED TO TAKE ON THE MONSTER and encouraged by the youngins I started with the class! With the fire breathers finishing in just more than 6 minutes, needless to say everyone could hear me breathing and spinning
Heck even with a "yoga pad" under me arse the sit-ups were a bit painful (motivated me to do them all unbroken)
Finished in 17:58! Heck that was a first time PR doing the WOD Rx:pepper:
Off on another road trip till Monday so wishing you all a great weekend!

4/20 WOD

Find your 1RM Turkish Get Up (15 minutes)
65# dumbbell with right arm.

Followed by 1 Round for Time of
20 Kettle Bell Swings (1.5/1)
40 Competition Push Ups
60 Hollow Rocks (a Baker favorite)
40 Competition Push Ups
20 Kettle Bell Swings
7:01 @ 2 pood.

I did 1.5 pood TGU with both arms, then 65# dumbbell with right arm fairly easily. I then tired myself with 4 or 5 fail reps with 2 pood kettlebell with right arm. In retrospect I should have worked with Mike Mac and Brian with a barbell, since I could have gone up from 65# before I exhausted myself. I was surprised that kettlebell TGU's were harder than dumbbell ones were.

As to the 1RFT with the heavy kettlebell, Malzone threw out the concept of going heavy (probably because we had a full class and would have run out of 1.5 pood bells) and several of us chose the wrench. First set of 20 went straight through, but last set was broken to something like 8, 5, 4, 3. Competition push ups sort of go straight through since I can de-weight my arms entirely at the bottom. Hollow rock sets went something like 20, then 10's, then 5's. ROM on everything quite good, except getting that 2 pood bell overhead on each rep is a bit of a challenge.

4/21 WOD (Saturday)

Sumo deadlift
3-3-3-3-3
135-225-255-275-295

AMREP 6 minutes
500 m row
400 m run
As many burpees as possible until end of 6 minutes.
38.

Never did sumo deadlifts before, so I started light and did not use my weightlifting shoes. Very pleased how easily 3 @ 295 went up. I might be due for another crack at one-rep max deadlift in my ongoing pursuit of a double bodyweight deadlift. Also, nice to be using weights on Saturday WOD's instead of just a bunch of bodyweight stuff all the time.

The AMREP really sucked the life out of me. At 10 burpees I was wondering if I had miscounted by 10 since they were taking forever, but sadly, no. On the plus side, I did the 500 m row in about 1:45 without completely gassing myself.

Thanks for the Kudos on the DL's everyone.

I have to figure out why this forum no longer notifies me when there are more messages.

4-22-12 Sunday

1000 M Row
25 box step up/downs 18"
25 Wall ball shots 20#
25 kb swings 70#
25 front squats 65#

11:57

Felt pretty good. Been off a few days working on house/home projects. Life is getting interesting family/career stuff. I may contact the artist who drew my avatar and see if he can show the terrain (life) as being a bunch of high and lows instead of one long mountain slipe. It makse more sense that way.

Are there any birthday WOD's you folks know about? Maybe I will do a filthy 55 next month in celebration of turning 55.

4/23 WOD

Clean and Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
135-145-155-165f-160f-160

Followed by 1 round of Max Unbroken Push Ups
(no more than 1 second rest at the top or bottom…none of the three-point-football-stance-rest nonsense of 2010)
35.

Pulled pretty badly with arms at 135 clean and jerk, but thereafter pleased with how little pulling there was. Fail at 165 because of lots of arm pulling. Fail at 160 was at push jerk after a successful squat clean. Both squat cleans at 160 felt pretty good. Even though I failed at my one-rep max of 165, I still feel like this was a very good day of Oly lifting. Weighed in at 157 after coming home, so 160 is definitely a legitimate bodyweight clean and jerk

Max pushups after all that cleaning and jerking was just mean, and the wiseguy comment about the 2010 debacle didn't help either. If you want me to do a bunch of push ups, you have to let me do them my way. :)

That's what you call being stuck between a rock and a hard place.


I started working out with a L1 coach with some decent oly skills. Did squat cleans at a 115# never really done them before, except the bar.

Tried push jerk ended up back to push press 135# did a few reps today after hitting 138# Push jerk pr the other day.

Didn't intend on doing grace reps today, did 3 or 4 single ground to overhead.

Deadlift (after hiatus) 285# x 3

I think I am back to a decent schedule, hitting wod with a group once in a while, it helps.

414. Did this in groups of six but everybody kept their own scores. The vast majority of reps were on mountain climbers (90's and 100's per round). Sumo deadlift high pulled the 2 pood bell two rounds and the 3 pood bell once.

Crossfit Cards:
Each team of 3 gets a deck of cards. Each team member picks a card where
Hearts - KBS
Diamonds - Sit up Wall Ball shots
Clubs - Cleans
Spades - Push Jerks

The number on the card is how many reps the team member does. Picture cards are 10. Aces are 11.

When a Joker is drawn, the WHOLE team does 10 Burpees!! Yay! Burpees!!

Object is to finish as many cards as possible.

40 cards
[I]Thought my team mates were card sharks, but I ended up doing 21 KBS & 18 cleans!! :yikes: (Oh yeah! We did the 1st set of Burpees!!)[/I]

5/2 WOD

AMRAP 15 Min
8 Kettlebell Swings (1.5/1)
8 Weighted Sit Ups (35#/25#)

9 rounds with 2 pood bell.
The bigger bell didn't really matter since it was the weighted sit ups that took all the time. (As AM Wood pointed out, the kettlebell swings were a "lovely interlude.") All kettlebell sets went straight through. This was the first time I've ever done weighted sit ups with 35#, all earlier WOD's were 25# or 20#. My sit ups devolved from 8 to something like 6-2 to 5-3 to 4-4 to 4-2-2 (you get the idea) until, finally, 4-2-1-1, with the last one completed just as time was up. Hard to overstate how slow weighted sit ups are.
