Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I also took a rest day--not active. Nodded off during gym time watching the "Eiger Sanction", Sore throat and headache. Just burning too many candles!

Good Work John B! YOU WILL GET THAT #!
I am hoping to string a couple together and not trip myself landing on the rope!
Pat--Believing for you to kick the crap that is trying to get on you!
Deb-you are signed up on the Box team right? You are certainly an asset to any team!

Guys, Thanks for the encouragement!

Deb,Tim, & John, Best of luck!! Great to have folks I know along for the ride!

Cliff - Hope to see you in the '12 games!

Pat - Hope you're feeling better!

[/B]800m run
2x 10
push ups
sit ups
5 pull ups

[/B]1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Clean & Jerks
95#-115#-135#-155#-145#-155# (PR:pepper:)-165#(f)

[I]Did a bunch of 95" just to get my "Scarecrow" to "Rack" position better. Didn't realize how sore my arms where until we started stretching!

[/I][B]CrossFit Games Open WOD 1[/B]
10 min AMRAP:
30 double unders
15 75# snatches

1 round + 30 double unders AND 14 snatches!

[I]SO CLOSE TO 2 rounds!! I was literally[/I] [I]pulling the weight off the ground & throwing it above my head to lock it out! But hey, I was able to do the 30 DUs TWICE! (Albeit not very well...) ;)

It was a lot of fun!

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;914825]
You can [B][I]Clean & Jerk[/I][/B] your [B]POWERSNATCH?[/B]? or just get it up there any old way.
WHY don't they just call it ground to overhead?? too much koolaid :p[/QUOTE]

Deb you tickle me!! In the explanation video they say exactly that, ground to overhead as long as it taps the ground and you come to both full hip and arm ext.

Pat congrats on the grandson!! Yay for miracles!!

25 minute rotation slow and controlled
3 reps MU transition, 3 reps inverted hang to back lever, 3 reps handstand holds.
This one was a nice change of pace.

Played around with the open wod, not to intense since I'm doing it again on Friday.
15 DU's
15 Power Snatch 55#
2 rounds + 20 reps
My goal is 3 full rounds as rx'd. Have I mentioned DU's need work? :rofl:

[B]3-17 Happy St. Patrick's Day[/B]
OHS, FS, BS 1 X 5
OHS 55#-75#-80#-85#X-85#
FS 105#-110#-115#-120#-125#X
BS 125#-145#-155#-155#-160#X

I'm glad you guys are all doing great and so far it's been a lot of fun watching all the times go up for the Masters on the Games site.

I'm heading to GA tomorrow to run a 1/2 Marathon on Sunday. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

[B]William HAPPY BIRTHDAY & CONGRATS on entering sectionals!![/B]

Shhhh...I did the same thing just for the fun of it and to get my butt out of scaling and my comfort zone. I don't care if I'm dead last, I had the courage to go ahead and commit.

3/12 Elite Goal day

My Elite Goal was 2x bodyweight deadlift. I weighed 160# so I was going for 320#. Unfortunately did not get there but got closer than ever before. I tied my PR of 305#, and I was able to get 320# an inch or two off the ground.

3/17 WOD

Box Squat 5-5-5-5-5

This was the first time I did these, so I was satisfied. Shared a bar with Baker. This was first time in over year we worked together, it was fun.

Followed by: 3 Rounds For Time
5 Handstand Push Ups
20 Box jumps
40 double unders

7:58 @ 1 pad and 24" box. Didn't get completely down to pad on each HSPU, but I think I got lower than I would have with two pads. Believe it or not, the double-unders started clicking for me. I didn't count consecutive reps, only total reps, but I'm pretty sure I got over 20 in a row a couple of times. Is this a breakthrough? Sure hope so.

[B]3.17.11 Thursday - recovery[/B]
Snatch + OHS[/B]
32kg/2+3 (6)

30kg/3 (3)
38kg/2 (3)

Video at home; still tiny early hip rise. Something starting to click, I Clark the bar when I really mess up my first pull - doesnt feel right! I said that to a guy at the gym, and he said, he knows the guy, worked out with him and..... HAHAHAhahahahaha!
Life is strange; the other nite I shared my platform with a retired Olympic weightlifter, who was giving me tips. Never saw that one coming. Weightlifting's a small world, I guess.
