Pat: I do have a home gym but its not cross fit worthy...yet!

Yesterday, at home:
Three rounds for time of:
95 pound Overhead squat, 15 reps
15 L Pull-ups
95 pound Split-jerk, 15 reps
15 Knees to elbows
95 pound Hang clean, 15 reps
15 Back extensions, with 25 pounds

31min. My L sit pullups were in need of some Levetra. Closer to an I.

Today: 4 mile run: 30 min.

Back from Paris. Didn't keep up with Burpees nor WOD's nor Paleo...but it was worth it!

Amrap 15 minutes:
7 Cleans (SQUAT)155/105
300m Run

Scaled down to 95#. Front squats a real challenge for me.

4 + 7 + 100m

Felt good afterwards.

@Hoogsteden (I'll bet they called you "Hoogs" in high school) SS is Starting Strength, Coach Mark Rippetoe's seminal work re: powerlifting and linear progression. It is my training bible; especially for form and technique. And he is one funny SOB to boot.

11_1_11 Tuesday[/B] coachless for snatch again
Low back and butt have been sore since this upramped programming....

Warmup
[B]
Powersnatch + OHS[/B]
25kg/2+2
30kg/2+2
35kg/2+1 (3)
eh these were ok, nothing as bad as the other nite....
[B]Snatch[/B]
35kg/2
40kg/2 make and a miss
43kg/0 miss (forward) same deal no speed or zing
[I]supposed to go to 46 too, at this point I got annoyed and dropped back to 35kg.[/I]
35kg (15) approx, zing is back!
[I]I can FEEL when its a good one, the bar lands BACK, and I'm automaticaly on my HEELS and it's easy. No arms pulling.[/I]
30kg (6)
[I]these lighter weight ones I worked on FAST, I swear I felt like Danica, finally one cohesive rise extension and jump under, no arm pulling. Probably the nicest ones Ive done. Nick would say, you CAN do it (right). Now do it. Why dont I always do my light snatches like this?? Ain't the programming, ain't the coach. must be ME. :([/I]
25kg (6)
[I]I've begun to think Ive been teaching myself to be comfortable on my toes, with the heavier weight.
Even the light ones that were excellent, Im realizing Im feeling a little panic in catch that the bar isn't where it almost always is. W/heavier I still want to arm pull.[/I]
[B]Drop Snatch[/B]
30kg/3
35kg/2
40kg/2 these sucked, pbly bc my back is toast
[B]Backsquat[/B]
40kg/3
50kg/3
55kg/3
60kg/2 (3) same deal, my legs dont feel much, trouble keeping back tight
[B]Good Morning[/B]
30kg/4 (4)

It was a pretty empty gym b/c the power problems all over the state, no coaches - me, Oak, House Dan & Graber. After I got annoyed and went down to the 35kg's snatch, I said to Oak and House, [I]'am I going to have to reteach myself how to do this every single time I snatch? I got my zing back, I can feel when its no good now - it feels like Im either not in enough hang or im trying to extend and the bar is forward, not near my leg...I can do it quick and right at the lower weight... why can't I do it like that with the heavier weight??"
[/I] Oak just had a little smile and House said [B]"....THAT'S THE WHOLE SPORT"[/B]

duh.

11/2 WOD

21-15-9
Kettlebell Snatch R
Kettlebell Snatch L
Knees to Elbow

5:24 with 1 pood kettlebell. I modified by starting with my left (weaker) arm. K2E's probably could have been higher.

Since we had extra time at the end of class, Zach added 2 mins max squats: 85. Pleased with this. It's 7 off my PR, but I used up a lot of juice on the WOD.

Classic chest workout: 3 sets flat, incline, decline bench, and flyes. Very weak on flat bench today. Shoulder very tight.

Back routine: 3 sets Sitting rows 720lbs, bent over rows 100 lb dumbells; close grip pull downs 240 lbs; band reverse flyes.

Snatches: First time really worked on Snatch form. Used bumper plates and stayed light at 75 lbs. Started really getting my hips into it and the bar started to fly up. First time doing snatches that I didnt aggravate my elbow. Plan: Hold off from using much more weight until I really get profficient. I will get this.

would love to see a video of these. Still can't figure out if this is supposed to be more like a good morning or a high bar ATA squat w/weight hanging from your forearm/elbows (Do you go down until your elbows touch your adductors? wide stance or like a snatch landing stance?)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
you nailed it deb with "w/weight hanging from your forearm/elbows" and then the classic squat position. except in my "special needs" situation with my shoulder my coach and a metal worker friend came up with a "harness" for me.

picture a metal frame that you can put your head through and then drape it over your shoulders and hanging down the front till around your belly button.

then off the front of the frame 3 sets of pins comming out to carry the bar. one real low one mid height and one almost at the top.

with these 3 pin placements it creates different stress on the body while doing squats. the one constant is it wants to pull the body forward the further down in the squat you go.

i have used this device for up to 305 lbs with a hi pin squat.

I trained tonite with a new student, a crossfitter - young, got an ideal bodytype for weightlifting, can f+b squat 200# already, she was a natural. I think Nick will have her snatching BIG weight in no time, be fun to get to watch some of it!
Pleased with my squats (that wasn't on the program - he told me, might as well squat). Danica was squatting like 315# :yikes: She rocks. Dan was zinging power cleans. My god I envy his zing! (I know what I want for Christmas...;))

11/4 WOD

5 Rounds for Time
6 Handstand Push Ups
12 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
24 Walking Overhead Lunges (45#/25#)

17:46 with one pad on HSPU. All of these movements presented ROM difficulties. After a few HSPU's it's hard to get head all the way down to tap the pad, and I missed a few. On C2B pull ups, I tended to have enough height but had difficulties pulling my chest in to touch the bar. And after a few, getting the height was a challenge too. With both HSPU's and C2B's, when I noticed ROM deteriorating I stopped and took a short breather so as not to continue with increasingly poor form. Walking OH lunges were just tough, and again I did not succeed in getting knees to kiss ground on each step. Plenty of opportunity for improvement.

On the other hand, starting a day with HSPU's and C2B is just so bad-@$$ I'm going to be feeling awesome all day!

Double unders (3x single unders)

Short and intense. This was our first WOD back in the box since Sept 9th. Felt frigging awesome.

Also a PR of sorts: Did a HSPU to an abmat placed on one 45# plate. The lowest I had gone previously was to two 45# plates with an abmat. I think I already posted my 3 consecutive kipping pull-ups. If not, I repeated tonight.

Hi everyone. I haven't logged on here much recently, but have been working out regularly. Mostly running, swimming and doing body weight circuits using my TRX, ropes, rings, pull up bar, etc. (with some deadlifts, shoulder presses, OHS, squats thrown in) in my garage. Focusing mostly on triathlon training these days. Just signed up for the Muskoka 70.3 again next year and also Ironman Florida. Hired a tri coach too! Haven't been doing much crossfit, but have been incorporating the concepts in my weight training.

Some good work going on here as always!

11/5 WOD

Hang Power Clean ladder with a partner (95#/65#) (start at 3 HPC's)

22 (?) rounds @ 75#. Worked with Ethan for whom 75# was quite heavy. We originally planned on switching at 5 HPC's, but the weight became a struggle for Ethan, so we switched to 6-4, then 7-3, then as many as we could do. Ethan gutted his HPC's out with such a heavy weight. By the late rounds, I was doing 15 to 18 HPC's per minute, and this ended up being a real metcon burner plus forearm fryer. (All these cooking metaphors, I must be hungry.)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Ok getting behind on logging here! I have been a bit more constant on working out.

I forget who did the 5000 meter row in a bit of change over 20 minutes.
I remember how the 500 meter felt doing just sub 2:00 minutes.
So I was inspired to go 20 minutes and hit 4500 meters. Just staying shy of the 2:00 per 500 pace, some going to 2:20 anyway that was a good row.

Hit a PR on deadlift. I need a training partner or a brain 275# 3 or 4 reps, I just lost count. It was a PR because I did singles at that weight and recently (different day)I did a sort of double, had to reposition my hand. Today 265# was slipping at 5 reps with a double overhand. Usually don't miss a deadlift on grip.

Perry 75 2 pood KB swings unbroken, nice! Takes mental energy.

Got my RX jump rope in today. Heaviest black cable with my length.
seems long, due to using short ropes for so long. 40 singles consistent while fresh and then will talk double unders. Taking a 51 year old and trying to learn what you should have learned as a kid. Crossfit (I don't want to grow up)

Use 10 Minutes to find your Max 1Rep Thruster
then:

“Mini Kalsu”
Until you get 50 Thrusters-
Drop every minute and do 3 Burpees.
Use 60% of your max Thruster weight.


I maxed at 125. I can go higher but I am not really doing a thruster. I am front squatting and then pressing the weight. Have to work on that. Did my "Mini Kalsu" with 75lbs. Finished in 8 minutes.

[B]Jim[/B] yeah, arm pulling would be most ALL people doing that many a minute!! That's a LOT of work. Even with arm pulling, my back & legs would STILL be putting a hurt on me.

Kalsu, tried it once - OMG w/65# I think I was getting 6-7 thrusters tops.
Tiring one.

Hoogs is on fire!!! :)

These were all ok, had two crappy pcleans, the narrow grip OHS went about the same as last time, shoulder flexibility limits ROM. Nick said its fine, it will build some muscle and strength in my back.

40kg/2
45kg/2
50kg/2 (2)
57kg/1 (5 - pressout, miss- didnt jump under, total miss, made it, miss)

[B]Snatch Grip Press from Snatch Position[/B]
15kg/6 (3)
told me my hips or tight. or my butt's to big to fit between them, your choice. Seriously, that my feet have to be farther apart and heels not turned in so far to compensate. and also, STICK the lock out.
Trained with two other students. They're men my age!! Did pretty well.
