Nice job Claw. Isn't Cindy a ***** John....but you put her in her place.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Claw - Nice job on the marathon!

Pat - Awesome results on the deadlifts.

I may be a few days before doing any WODs. Went skiing for three days; near the end of the third day, I took a hard fall onto my left (previously injured) shoulder. Spent some time doing ROM exercises and it feels a bit better so I'm going to try a workout tomorrow.

I traveled to New Zealand on a bus trip in January, workouts were sparse.
Did air squats one hotel had some free weights C & J and something else.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
2/15 WOD

Overhead Squats:

AMRAP 5 Min:
500 M Row
In the remainder of the 5 minutes, perform as many backsquats as possible. (95#/65#)

My sets of 10 OHS went well, even at 95#. Failure at 115 was technique related (got too low, lowered my knee to steady myself and gave Baker a heart attack, then too low to get back up) but failure at 125# was just because I had done a lot of OHS in a short time.

Took it easy on row, about 2:00, then BS sets of a little over 20, then a couple 10's, then the last blast in the last 15 or 20 seconds.


Pat Quigley 02-15-2012 02:42 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff, great going on the Murph. 300 squats is no walk in the park. I would have been "squimish in Squamish".

John, that is just allot of work in 16 minutes!

Just did deadlift workout a la Wendler. OHP's were just thrown in so I could finish my strength training for the week today and come back tomorrow for the group WOD tomorrow.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
2/17 WOD

1 Round for Score and Time (You’ll be scored on the double unders)
400 M Run
2 Min Rest
50 KB Swings (1.5/1)
2 Min Rest
50 Box Jumps (24″/20″)
2 Min Rest
50 Burpees
2 Min Rest
2 Min Max Double Unders

20:40 (including rest periods); 74 double unders

Went all out on the work intervals. Run was about 90 seconds. Did kettlebell swings in sets of 30, 10, 10. Box jumps are now to competition standard, meaning you have to standing with open hips on top of the box, not while jumping back down. This slows them down considerably. Tried to pause at top then bounce right back up from floor, but that only lasted 10 reps or so. 50 burpees are 50 burpees (Yay Burpees!), although lately I've been jumping my legs back spread wide so I'm on my feet lower in the squat. Seems to speed them up a bit. I was disappointed in my double under count. I can now very consistently knock out 12 or 16 at a time, but longer sets are much more elusive.

Cody and I were neck and neck basically the whole time, but he ended up with a bunch more double unders. Tobin was insanely fast on this one -- did you REALLY take two full minutes rest each time? (Kidding, I'm sure you did.)

2/19 workout

10 sprints up Manitou Lane for time
(about 110 meters uphill)

220 minus my age = max heart rate = 171
About 2 or 3 minutes between reps,waiting until heart rate down to about 110 to 115 before starting again. Here is the 4th or 5th rep: [url][/url] (WFS)

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.

Pat Quigley 02-20-2012 11:33 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Deb, great feedback. Took a while, didn't it!?!

Strength: Back Squat: 3X 255, 295, 325 (failed on 3rd)

5 rounds of 25 feet lunges.

WOD w. group.
As many reps as possible over 3 rounds:
1 minutes of each:
Wall ball
Box Jumps
Push press 95#
Row calories in 1 minute
1 minute rest.

Scales 14# ball, box step ups.

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;1035717]

[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.

Alden Hingle 02-21-2012 10:29 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Deb - I should have mentioned that I'm noticing my "bad knee" feel better in squats now that I've started doing the hip mobility work.

2/21/2012 Front Squat

Warmup: Row 500m, single unders, back extensions, Abmat sit-ups, KB swings, chin pull 45# X 20, lat pull 45# X 20, shoulder press 303 X20

Front squats 3-3-3-3-3
75-95-115-135-155 (PR)

Cash out: shoulder press 45X 20 reps X 2 sets, internal rotation, chin pull & lat pull 45# X 20 reps, t-spine mobility

Deb Weber 02-21-2012 10:34 AM

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... :)

Cliff Miller 02-21-2012 01:03 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

15 amrap

2/21 WOD

Good Mornings

Followed by:
2 Turkish Get Ups
4 Clapping Push Ups
6 V Ups
10 rounds with 35# dumb bell.

Never did weighted Good Mornings before, so very cautious with weights. No problem moving the weight around this morning, nice stretch on hamstrings.
Started AMRAP with 1.5 pood kettlebell, but that wasn't happening this morning, so went down to 35# dumb bell. This movement can be a LOT more efficient.

BP 1 rm 225 easy then stopped, cutting back. 275 is about right.

John Burch 02-21-2012 06:54 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Alden Hingle 02-22-2012 09:06 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
02/22/2012 Angie

Warmup: Assist ring dips, shoulder mobility, single unders, back extensions

Workout: Cindy (Pack-)
50 pull-ups (subbed pull-downs @65#)
50 push-ups
50 sit-ups
50 squats

Cash Out: shoulder press 45# X 20 X 2, hip external rotation (tree posture), ring rows X 10 X 2, shoulder internal and external rotation, DB internal and external rotation

The move to heavier pull-downs and push-ups may have been premature for the shoulder in rehab. No pain but it stiffened up after the workout.

Jim Cordes 02-22-2012 12:19 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
2/22 WOD

Push Press

Followed by:
1 Round for time
800 M Row
800 M Run

My weight is down about 10# from before Christmas (currently 155, something I haven't seen in decades) but all the strength is still there, as evidenced by the Push Press PR. On the 1RFT started my row at about a 1:40 pace, slowed to 2:00 by the end. Thought I was pretty efficient on the row. The run went well, but I was really gasping for air for the first lap and a half. Thought I put forth a good effort here.


Bill Hoogsteden 02-22-2012 08:17 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Great Job JB, Alden, & Claw!!

Alden, have you looked at [URL=""] the Mobility WOD[/URL]? Lots of good stuff there to help with stiffness, etc.

40 ft Samson Stretch walking lunges
40 ft Hurdler Stretch reverse lunges
20 ft right hand 25# dumb bell snatches, thruster, left hand snatch, thruster, lunge walk

For time:
10 Wall Walks
then 3 rounds:
10 Ring Dips
15 Kettlebell Swings (1.5 Pood)
20 20# Wall Ball Shots
25 Abmat Sit Ups


[I]The "stabbing pain" I felt in my right shoulder several weeks ago was gone! Of course ring dips weren't any easier. Doing them in sets of three was best I could do. Wall Balls after KBS are BRUTAL!! Tried to break 15 mins, did it and ended being the first one done![/I]

Good luck in the open!! (YAY!! BURPEES!!!)

Pat Quigley 02-22-2012 09:30 PM
