Max Height Box Jump [I]Did 24".[/I]

Power Snatch + Squat Snatch x 5 @ 75% 1RM Squat Snatch

[I]Tried 95#, but could only do Power Snatches (Poorly!!). I was able to do 65#.[/I]

[B]12 Dec:[/B]

Nasty Girls
3 rounds of:
50 Air Squats
7 Muscle Ups [I](I subbed 21 Pull Ups & 21 box dips! Such is life at the base globo...:shrug:)[/I]
10 Hang Power Cleans (135, 95#) [I](Did 135# Power cleans.)[/I]


[I]It's been a while since I've done this many cleans. I was only able to do one at a time. The pull ups hurt my grip on the bar for the cleans. Still, I couldn't believe it took me this long to do the WOD![/I]

[B]13 Dec:[/B]
Toes to Bar
Box Jump (24/20)

Did it Rx

[I]This was a tough one. Tried to do the DLs in subsets of 3, which seemed to work.[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Finally made it back to Tribal Crossfit today. Just wonderful seeing so many workout buddies.

Warm up, dynamic stretching.


5X5 Deadlift


10 minute AMRAP
5 DL @ 225
5 hspu.
6r+ 5 DL.

6R + 5 DL. I am really out of shape. This was very similar to coming back after the heart attack in 2011. Oh well, I'm back.:kicking0::kicking0::kicking0::kicking0::kicking0::pepper::kicking0:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Got behind in my blogging again.

12/10 WOD
Handstand Pushups
Deadlifts 225/155

8:25 @ 195# and with ALJ HSPU’s.

Today was an epiphany caused by a confluence of events.

The article by Rip, the subject of the CPC blog post for today, was one I had noticed last week and really spoke to me. I am the advanced Crossfitter for whom progress comes very slowly.

Next, the WOD had not yet posted, so today was one of the rare days where I walked into the gym not knowing what the WOD would be.

Finally, as I was at home getting ready to come in, I ran across a Breaking Muscle article on scaling Diane. ([url][/url] ... e-the-wods) In essence, the article points out that Diane should be about 70% of my one rep max, meaning if I did not have a 325 pound deadift, which I do not have, I should not be doing Diane as Rx’d.

Then, of course, I walk in and the WOD is Diane, the very one I had just realized I should be scaling.

One of my big issues is ego: I want to do all the WODs as Rx’d, even though the intellectual part of me knows that it’s not necessarily ideal. Diane is a classic example. It is a sprint, but the last time I did it as Rx’d, it took over 13 minutes, definitely not a sprint for me.

I think the epiphany is that I really could be training a little smarter, which means sometimes (*gasp*) scaling the WODs to get the desired effect. In other words, scale so that a sprint WOD really is a sprint WOD for me.

With this in mind, I did Diane at 195 pounds. It still was over eight minutes, so it was still not a true sprint, and I still struggle with the handstand push-ups, but this day was a real eye opener to me that I may actually end up with better results if I, as they say, check my ego at the door, and not blindly do a WOD as Rx’d simply so I can tell myself I did it as Rx’d. Instead, think about what the purpose is: Grind something out for 20 minutes, put in intervals of truly high effort then rest, or go pedal-to-the-metal for 6 to 8 minutes. All these time domains have their purposes, so accept and embrace them.

12/12 WOD
A. 15:00 to find 1RM Clean & Jerk

AMRAP 4:00
9 T2B
9 Thrusters 95/65
rest 4:00
AMRAP 3:00
6 T2B
6 Thrusters 95/65
rest 3:00
AMRAP 2:00
3 T2B
3 Thrusters 95/65

3 rounds first two AMRAPs, 3.5 on last. I really need to figure out to kip by T2B’s and get rid of the swing I do in between each one.

12/13 WOD
A. Sumo Deadlift, 31X1, 5-7 reps, 5 sets, rest 2-3min

B. EMOTM, 8:00
odd – 10-15 Russian KBS
even – 150m Row

Rest 2
C. EMOTM, 8:00
odd – 10-15 Wall Balls
even – 30sec DU’s

Used 2 pood on Kb swings.
This was a LOT of work, much harder than in appeared. Several sets of 30 sec doubleunders went straight through, counted 53 reps on one of them. DU’s really going well lately.

12/14 Saturday WOD
Run 1 mile

5 pull ups
10 weighted step ups (25# dumbbells)
8.5 or 9.5 rounds, lost count.

Rest 5
10 push ups
20 medball V-twists
10 Kb goblet squats (1.5 pood)
Lost count.

12/18 WOD
A1. Barbell Press, 21X1, 4-5 reps, 5 sets, rest 1:00
A2. Weighted Chinups, 21X1, 4-5 reps, 5 sets, rest 1:00
75/5 chains; 95/12 kg. kettlebell; 105/5 chains; 115(f3)/2 chains; 105/2 chains
Decreased weight on chinups when I had difficulty getting chin over bar on all 5 reps.

EMOTM, 18:00, cycling through:
1- 15 Pushups
2- 5-7 Deadlifts (50-60% 1RM)
3- 30 Double Unders
Used 185# for deadlifts.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Wednesday December 18, 2013

@Claw, nice work figuring out the appropriate scaling to get the benefit intended from the different time domains. Once you understand what each WOD is trying to work, your definition of Rx will never be the same again.

I actually attempted to "exercise" today, 18 days after tearing my oblique and straining my serratus.

Walked 1 mile with an elevation gain of 50 feet in 29 minutes.
Held a 15# weight in a goblet squat for two minutes.
Did five very slow strict pullup like movements where I went into a squat and "pulled up" while keeping my feet on the ground.
Did five 10# bench presses.
Did five gto with 5# in each hand (very slowly).

Only had one twitch in the left serratus during walking, which was cured by slowly down my walk, and no clinches in the obliques. No twitches, twinges, or clinches during the very slow very light movements.

Overall, a very promising day.

One step at a time...

Bill Hoogsteden 12-18-2013 08:42 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
12/23 WOD
The 12 Days of Christmas – CPC Style
12) Squats
11) Double Unders
10) DB Push Press
9) Box Jumps
8) KB Swings
7) Knees to Elbows
6) Burpees
5) Pull ups
4) Ring Dips
3) Weighted Sit ups
2) Handstand Push ups
1) Muscle Up
Round 1 = 12 Squats
Round 2 = 12 Squats, 11 Double Unders
Round 3 = 12 Squats, 11 Double Unders, 10 DB Push Presses etc.

Push presses at 35#,weighted sit ups at 25# and 15# (depending on what was available), HSPU to one pad.

Push presses were very tiring. This was about 2:30 slower than last year. I spent the last 3+ minutes trying to get my muscle up but stopped after 3 failed attempts. Frustrating. Lately I have missed more of them than I have accomplished. Something to get dialed back in for the new year.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hello all. Forgot to mention in last night's post that I'll be taking two weeks off from workouts based on pain management doc guidance. I had steroid injections in my lower back today to settle down the inflammation in the sciatic nerve. If that doesn't work, I'll go in for a "roto rooter" of the stenosis and get the bulging disk trimmed.
If you are interested in the ugly details, go to [url][/url] (wfs); I posted a note there asking for input from the medical professionals on the list. Yep, still looking for that different opinion on my fitness program. ;)

I wish you all a merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah or whatever holiday you celebrate this time of the year. May you have all the best of the season and good health and happiness in 2014.

Cliff Miller 12-24-2013 07:55 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Alden, sorry to hear about the back pain.

Friday December 27, 2013

One month since I hurt my back and I am finally starting to feel whole. It still is sore, but it's no longer injured.

At the Shed...

Simulated walking on uneven terrain carrying 10# kbs in each hand for 10 minutes. This exhausted my hip flexors.

PVC movements, 11# training bar movements, 5# KB movements, some actual pullups.

JT Kalnay 12-28-2013 08:49 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Sunday December 29th, 2013

I can already tell the days are getting longer, and that there are a few more minutes of daylight!

10 tgus each side with 10#.
10 kb snatches on each side with 10#

Bench Presses
1x225 (fail)

could have gone heavier, but I have to remember I am recovering from a serious back injury. I think this is a really dangerous time for me, because I am feeling a LOT better, and thus am really susceptible to trying to do too much too soon and getting re-injured. baby steps JT, baby steps...

Alden Hingle 12-29-2013 08:53 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[QUOTE=JT Kalnay;1212099]@Alden, sorry to hear about the back pain.


Thanks, JT. I am following orders, just walking on the treadmill and walking the dogs. Only one more week until my follow-up. Glad to hear you are feeling better but you are right about this being a dangerous time. Better to go slow and delay a week or two than re-injure yourself and be back at square one.

Cliff Miller 12-30-2013 08:19 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
JT....get those urges out of your head......slow and easy wins the race.....if you are anything like me and i suspect you are you just want to get back into the race right where you left off....don't do is not worth the extra time it is going to cost you. you will be back to your old self soon enough.

friday nite at the gym

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Thanks Alden, Thanks Cliff, I can't hear it enough about being careful during rehab...

Monday December 30, 2013

Walked two miles on the treadmill increasing the incline up to 15% by the end. Very sweaty. Walking on the treadmill is actually harder for me than walking outside b/c outside I can use my trekking poles to reduce the side-to-side motion that exhausts my hip muscles. Outside I'm averaging 19 minutes per mile, on the treadmill I average 26 minutes per mile b/c my hips get tired then sore.

Held a goblet squat for two minutes.

Did some easy back squats in the squat rack machine.

Did 10 strict T2B.

Am feeling much better. Need to be very careful not to re-injure.

Cliff Miller 12-31-2013 09:06 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
be careful JT !!!!!!

20 minute workout

on the even 5 ring rows 10 sit ups

JT Kalnay 12-31-2013 05:14 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Yes, I can't be warned enough to be careful. Today while rowing I focused on maintaining perfect form.

December 31, 2013 (New Year's Eve)

By the end of 2014 I want to have this under 20 minutes!

Wednesday January 1, 2014

A frosty morning in the Shed 'o Pain.

Ten TGUs on each side with a frozen 15# KB.

[U]Approx. 12/24[/U]
Goofed around at Bacara with high rep, low weight thrusters and squats.

A. Backsquat
Really happy to hit 3 @ 235.

B. "DG"
8 toes to bar
8 dumbbell thrusters (35)
12 dumbbell walking lunges (35)
4 rounds plus 8 T2B plus 6 thrusters.

After first round had to break T2B to 4's, then eventually 2's; thrusters to 4's; and lunges to 6's. This was a grind.

AMRAP random body weight movements during each commercial break with Gary and Claire's kids. Kept it up for maybe 5 commercial breaks. Did sit ups, push ups, plank holds, standing lunges, pigeon pose.

5,000 M row.

I am so ready to get back to CPC and start the Whole Life Challenge!

Walked two miles on the treadmill at speeds ranging from 2.5mph to 2.0mph varying inversely with incline of 0.0% to 15%.

Then, did ten burpees.
The ten burpees were harder than the two miles, just sayin'......

Day 1 of Oly Lifting Cert

It's amazing how heavy a piece of PVC gets on about the 350th rep...

Excellent instruction, 100% time on topic, skilled coaches who know how to coach, lots of motivated athletes, excellent facility. Hard to imagine a better day.

Day Two of Oly Lifting Cert

Another great day learning how to coach the lifts.
The coaches really focused on how to teach the lifts.
There were a couple of other guys from my demographic at the cert and it was cool to hang out with the "geezers" and learn how to teach other "geezers". Coach Burgener appreciated our squats to a box.

@Cliff, yes the old trick for teaching new tricks to old dogs is, wait, what was I talking about?

Monday January 6, 2014

3 TGUs with 15# on each side.
TGUs make BTUs.

10 burpees (have I ever mentioned I vehemently dislike burpees?)

walked 2 miles on the treadmill at inclines of up to 10%.
wore sturdier shoes today and that seemed to help with the instability in my prosthetic hip

did 2x10 deadlifts at the amazing weight of, wait for it, drumroll please, 45#...

back squat 372
bench 220
dead lift 405

total 997lbs

and i know i left at least 3 lbs on the table somewhere over those 3 lifts:mad:

Cliff - Sorry you missed 1000 but you know those 3 pounds are history the next time you give this one a shot.

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing all of you good health and much happiness in the new year.

2 pood kettlebell with right arm, 65# dumbbell with left arm

B. Team WOD with Augie
5 RFT of:
40 Pushups (one partner works while other partner holds plank)
50 Sprawl balls (throw 20# medball to partner, catch medball from partner, no pushup burpee, throw medball to partner etc.)
60 Squats (one partner works while other partner holds squat)

My scores each round were all over the map, primarily depending on the weight of the narrow grip bench press. Did one round at 55#, one at 45#, and two at 65#, depending on what was available.

Majority of the class did Performance. 6 a.m. is getting pretty bad@$$!
