7/4 WOD
1970's themed Fourth of July Team WOD

WOD looked something like this (I forget the details, but it involved about 70 reps of 10 different movements, done as a team of 2 or 3, one athlete working at a time).
70 burpees
71 pull ups
72 wall balls
long lap run (1/3 mile)
Details get a little blurred here, but we also did kettlebell swings, box jumps, a 200 meter backwards run, 45# push presses, and we ended with a 200 meter Ultimate Medball run.

Team "Disco Balls" with Christina and Conrad. I decided not to choose the wrench and went with a three-person team instead of a two-person team. We flew through this one with one of the fastest times in the box, about 22 minutes, which was accomplished by doing short quick sets and trading off work frequently.

7/6 WOD
Running Seminar

800 M time trial: 3:06*
400 M time trial: 1:21**

Otherwise lots of slow running to warm up, cool down. One lap was supposed to be at 80% of my 400 M time, which would have been 1:41. I came in about 1:45; interesting that I underestimated what 80% is. I'll have to equate my actual effort with about a 75% effort. It felt quite manageable.

* Lane 5 = 860 actual meters = 2:54 800 M equivalent.
** Lane 5 = 430 actual meters = 1:15 400 M equivalent.
*** Yes, I will stop doing this conversion now.

7/8 Workout at The Spa at Bacara

Bulgarian Split Squat
5-5-5-5-5 (each leg)

Tabata 35# dumbbell squat cleans (aka "What the F*** Was I Thinking!?")
(Yes, i came up with this one all by myself.)
First round 6, which about killed me, so the rest were 4. By the end getting that 4th rep in before 20 seconds was up was a challenge!

Tabata Double Unders
I have been wanting to do this one since I first heard of it. I think Spealler gets something like 44. I managed to hit 18 first round and stuck with that. Sound rounds were very easy, some I barely managed to get all 18 in.

7/9 WOD
Started with hand stand practice. I put a folded mat (so 4 layers) behind me and let myself fall over backwards if necessary. It really seemed to help, although I am a long way from any kind of sustained hold.

Deadlift 3-3-3-3-3

Really felt yesterday's Bulgarian split squats in my butt, so 275 was my max. Tried 295 once but it went nowhere. Traver suggested grabbing the bar with my hands a little farther apart to make room for my adducting knees, and it was a great tip. Remember this from now on, set up with hands about 2" out from inside gnurling on bar.

5 Rounds For Time:
3 Handstand Push Ups
6 Dumbell burpee squat clean thrusters
9 Box jumps

Can't believe we do dumbell burpee squat clean thrusters the day after my WTF Tabata dumbell squat cleans. At least I knew 35# was the weight I wanted. This just sucked!

Nice work Guys!

Spent the last few days off (except for messing around with Clean & Jerks on the 4th :pepper:)

Hope all had a safe and happy 4th!

400m run
Dynamic stretching (~40ft:)

-Walking Lunges
-Sumo squats
-high knees (2)
-Butt kickers (2)
-knee hugs

800m run
@8 min:
8min AMRAP:
10 115# Behind the Neck Push Presses [I]Scaled to 95#[/I]
20 1.5 Pood KBS
30 DUs [I]Did DU attempts, i.e. 3 single unders then a DU attempt.[/I]
then 4 min rest
then 800m run

5:15/1 round + 10 Behind the Neck Push Presses + 20 KBS + 13 DU attempts/4:37

[I]Sandbagged the 1st run. I was worried about the Behind the Neck Push Presses, but they weren't bad. The slow part was the DU attempts. Need to keep working on them! The 2nd run went easy and I was able to pass a couple of folks, even though the 800m times were slow, but they felt good! :D[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Haven't posted since my wife got me a membership to our local box. What a difference doing WODs with others as opposed to on your own. All goats are improving! Loving the camaraderie and competition!:kicking0:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
As always, reading your workouts and results fills me with admiration and motivation. Good work!

Warmup: Row 800m; t-spine and shoulder mob; deadlifts 100, 120X5, 145X3
Lift: Deadlifts 160, 180X5, 205x11
Assist: 55# good mornings X4X10
Toes to Bar X4X10
WOD: 10# wallball X 75 reps
Cashout: Wobble board

Today was the first wall ball workout since injuring shoulder eight months ago. Happy with the way it felt. First 30 shots were continuous and happened in 1:15. Then sets of 3-5 for a bit, then increasing numbers of reps before breaks until completion. Definitely need to work on my pacing.
