Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@rowers, Strokes/minute is critical. Everyone goes too fast using inefficient strokes. 18 spm, where every pull is purposeful and powerful is the way to go, especially at our age... And yes, do the 2k tests on a series of different days, doing two at most on the same day.

Wednesday March 26, 2014

Walked 2.5 miles uphill on the treadmill (@10%)

5x45 back squat
20x135 back squat

Back squats are much harder after walking 2.5 miles uphill!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Claw - Words can't express...:shrug: What you wrote on FB was an awesome tribute.

Cliff - Thanks! I felt brutalized after that WOD!

JT - You're so right about focusing on Strokes/Min. Doing that helped my rowing!

Pat - Enjoy the Family Stuff! (Nice Chipper in an AMRAP!)

[B]At base Globo:
.3333333333mi run
100 SUs
10 Leg Swings
10 Air Squats
10 Push Ups
10 Pull Ups
10 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
10 sit ups
1 headstand
10 22# Presses

Open 12.4/13.3 (Scaled):
150 Dumbbell Thrusters (20# DB each hand)
90 DUs
30 MUs


[I]The base Globo does not allow hitting wall balls against the wall. :mad: Hence, I scaled to 20# DB's, They were easier to do in subsets of 10, then 5 for the last 50. I had about 2 min left and I couldn't jump, so the DB Thrusters were effectively as bad as the WBs. All the DU practice I've been doing helped, though not as much since I could barely jump. I was glad I did improve from a year ago.[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
only had a few minutes last nite to muck around with the rower but got it down to about 23/23 spm and it just felt weird but i see how it makes sense cause i was just gassing myself out at 33 or so spm.

3/27 WOD
Skill Session: SFG Kettlebell Swing
Mika did a good job explaining this complicated movement.

4 rounds of:
200m Farmers Carry
50 Double Unders
1:00 Plank hold on rings
Used 1 pood on Farmer's Carry and still only able to do first 200 meters unbroken. Only first plank hold unbroken too. On the other hand, double unders got progressively better. Final set done with only one break.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
great work all

went to vancouver yesterday and had a complete body scan done.

30.2% body fat....not sure quite what to think of that does give me a base line to check in with in 10 weeks when we (the gym) is done with its food challenge....

there are 9ish of us on a 10 week clean eating ect....plan being sheperaded by jesse our coach.....we all did fight gone bad 2 or so weeks ago and not we are going to use this body scan and fight gone bad numbers as out benchmarks so in 10 weeks we will do both over again and see who has the best % improvement in both numbers.....

gonna be a great 10 weeks starting sunday

JT Kalnay 03-28-2014 06:15 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@cliff, good luck on the challenge, and on getting that BF% moving in the right direction. Mine's still going the wrong way...

Friday March 28, 2014

Oly warmup, oly practice, 74kg snatch (PR).

Pat Quigley 03-29-2014 12:00 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff consider joining a bunch of us who finished the last Whole Life Challenge and are continuing on Facebook.

14.5 in 24.16. Should have gotten my coach to record this. Since I turn 70 this year, I'd like to see a 70+ Masters Group.

JT Kalnay 03-29-2014 02:58 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Pat, that is an amazing accomplishment. Awesome time.

Saturday March 29, 2014

C&J practice at CrossFit Tiffin
Made 230#, made 240#, failed at 250#.

Watched Tim put a cap on The Open. An extremely impressive performance.

Alden Hingle 03-29-2014 08:22 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
JT - Thanks for the rowing coaching. It felt strange to cut my strokes down but now 20-22 feel pretty good. Can't seem to get much below that consistently; been doing them wrong for so long, it will take a while to break the habit.

3/26 Working out at company fitness center in VA. No kettlebells due to "safety concerns"
WU: Row 1km; halos 25# X20
35 lb dumbbell press ladders 4X(1-5) 60 reps per side
35 lb dumbbell swings X9 minutes. 203 reps.
60lb dumbbell suitcase carry X 100yds (both sides)

3/29 Back at home with my own equipment :kicking0:
WU: Row 1km; goblet squats BW, 25, 35, 45 X10; halos 25, 35 X20
35# clean & press 4X(1-5) 60 reps/ side
35# swings X9:00 206 reps
Weighted pull-ups (+27) 2 X(1-5) 30 reps

Was on business travel this week so not a great week for workout consistency. Also drank a couple of frosties every night while getting together with friends in the DC area so lost a little ground on weight and percent bodyfat. No regrets, though; it was good to see folks I used to work or socialize with before the move to CO.

Jim Cordes 03-30-2014 05:50 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
3/28 WOD
Open 14.5
For time
21-18-15-12-9-6-3 reps of:
Thrusters, 95 / 65 lb.

Super happy with this one. Great ROM on all reps.

Broke each set of thrusters into 3rds, so each 3rd was progressively shorter. (7-7-7; 6-6-6; 5-5-5 etc until second to last round when I did 3-3; 3.) Burpees took longer than thrusters. I basically fell down then stepped up from prone, alternating legs. Surprisingly, shoulders started to go before legs on the burpees. Also, I tend to "prance" over the bar so I thought of each burpee as ending with an 8" box jump. Made each rep count. Went slowly enough on thruster descent to get deep enough, and took a moment to set both feet before hopping over the bar.


JT Kalnay 03-30-2014 05:55 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@claw, nice job, I witnessed times from 19:43 to 8:53 so I understand what you're saying when you had to "focus" on jumping not prancing. Strange things happened to people after the round of 15...

Sunday March 30, 2014

"Rest" day
worked 06:30 to 09:00
did homework with the girls 09:00 to 12:00
lunch 12 to 12:15
more homework 12:15 to 15:00
drove home and rested 15:30 to 18:30
worked 18:30 to now (20:49) with another hour or two to go.

Does this really qualify as a "rest" day?

Cliff Miller 03-31-2014 11:42 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Just a couple months shy of 51 and one spine surgery later:


30# Powerblock DBs for thrusters (jumped over the DBs), plank pushup burpees with a jump and overhead clap. 15:35

Used dumbbells rather a barbell so I could keep my position more upright with less chance of rounding my lower back. Harder on the shoulders than using a barbell, so I consider the tradeoff fair. I sure don't want a second spine surgery.

Got through the 21 round with no breaks anywhere, but it was way too fast to start. I should have broken them up a bit to save a little for the later rounds.

I liked the flow of this one. Good workout. Definitely a keeper.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Fantastic Work Guys!!

400m run
100+ SUs
10 Pull Ups
10 Leg Swings (each leg, both directions)
10 Push Ups
10 AbMat Sit Ups
Mobility work
10 45# Presses


65# Thrusters
Bar Facing Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)


[I]I thought this would be an easy one. But it's the Open, and it's not!! I tried much of the strategies, but it was still brutal. I did the 1st set of thrusters with 11 straight. That was a mistake. I should have broken them up earlier and been more consistent. I was only glad I didn't try this Friday or Saturday. My DOMS was so bad from subbing 20# DB Thrusters last week on the 12.4/13.3 Open.

Jim Cordes 04-01-2014 10:14 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
3/31 WOD
A. Split Jerk, work up to a 1RM

1 round at 80% effort:
30 T2B
400m Run
40 Pushups
400m Run
50 Situps
400m Run
60 Air Squats
400m Run

Experimented by trying a long set of T2B to start. Got 15 but then the remainder were slow and in very short sets.

4/1 WOD
30 Clean & Jerks for time, 135/95

6:37 (power clean)
Wanted to get right around 6:00 and was on schedule until last rep. HIt the 30th clean at about 6:00 but could not get jerk up. Tried twice but had to drop bar. Came back after 30 second rest and nailed it. Disappointing result since I liked my time through the first 29. Pretty good results out of 6 a.m. class this morning.

Gotta get me some of that.

Wednesday April 2, 2014

Held a goblet squat for two minutes.
Was going to do deadlifts up to 20x225.
I had nothing, so I did 5x135 and 5x135.

Did Snatch and C&J technique practice at 65# and 95#.
That's all I had.

Did some push presses with dumbells, then conceded that I need a rest day.

Bicycle training stand intervals
6:00 warmup
21:00 intervals - 1:00 work/ 2:00 recovery
4:00 cool down

I have been experimenting with a 16/8 intermittent fasting protocol over the last four weeks with good results. I have dropped seven pounds, an inch+ off my waist and gone from 23% body fat to 21%. It has not been difficult; I only do it five days per week (on workdays). I am still eating the same kinds of things for breakfast, lunch and dinner but I don't start eating until 11:00 AM. The eating in an eight hour window keeps me feeling satiated; as a result, I'm eating fewer snacks and smaller portions. I even had a week of business travel that included bad food choices and a couple of beers each night while connecting with old friends. The total weight loss would have been more if I had been home without the temptations of Guiness on tap, nacho platters and sliders. ;)

missed a couple of days due to being sick

back at it last night however

10 minutes on the minute

4 20 lb lateral wall ball
8 incline push up


2000m row

7:32.....pointed out to my coach that that time was 5 seconds slower than when i was not on the clean eating program and was hung over on a saturday morning....i did try JT's advice on the lower damper setting and slower stroke rate and for a while it did work and then i either panicked or just lost the plot and started to fall back into my old way of rowing...which obviously did not work.....:shrug:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
good to see you all here. had an attack of diverticulitis last week and on levoquin for several days. Unable to work out due to tendon risks on that med. My brain doesn't fully comprehend that and it is hard for me to feel tired enough to fall asleep without some exercise. Fortunately this will be over in a few days.

Bill Hoogsteden 04-08-2014 05:45 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Row 500m
15 Back Squat (#175/125) [B](155#)[/B]
Row 500m


[I]When I got to the box, instead on one name one the white board, there were 4 with their times and scalings. AND there in the middle was my name all set for my time!!:D The early crew left a present for me!! :D

This was a brutal WOD. I kept a 2:10 pace for the first row. The snatches & the OHSs were tough. I broke them up into 4 subsets. I was a little slower on the next rowing set and only took 2 subsets. The last squat set was daunting & I scaled to 155# (I haven't cleaned this in a while!). I was able to get the back squats done in one set. The last row set went very quick, I focused on the strokes and being consistent.

I ended up with the 2nd fast albeit scaled time on the board! Not bad for an old guy!! ;)[/I]

Made it up in about 1:15.

4/9 WOD
A. Front Squat, 32X1, 3-4 reps, 4 sets, rest 2-3min
Slow descent plus pause at bottom really made these feel heavy.

EMOTM, 15:00

15 Abmat Situps
5-7 Dumbbell Push Jerks
Note: cycle through 5 times

Did first set with 2 pood kettlebell then went up to 3 pood! 35# on db push jerks which was too light. Too much rest built into this WOD, lots of time to goof off in the 40 to 45 seconds of rest each minute. Big class!

Hello Friends,

(NOT SO QUICK update: I last posted after finishing 14.3 and then life got interesting:confused: My wife had been gone for 2 weeks up to Bellingham to be with her Ailing Mom with hopes to get her into an assisted living facility and soon as she arrived there was a dramatic turn for the worse..... so she required 24hr supervision and help (shared by her 4 children) made concentrating on the Open secondary for me! I finished 14.4 in 62place World wide and maintained 4th in the NW region and was looking forward to 14.5 with great excitement when it was announced! (my wife agreed to come home on The Thursday to be here to support me and sure enough as soon as she arrived after the 5hr drive she got a call from her brother that she better return ASAP as Mom might not make it? So on Friday morning at 7am I got her on the road back and tried to retain focus on the the Open to be done with the rest of our Box at 5pm! (TO MY SURPRISE) by 9:30am I was doubled over, with a bloated stomach and pain unbelievable!! Felt really constipated and at the same time felt like I needed to throw up (but couldn't do either):ranting2::ranting2::rofl: I didn't want to worry the Mrs. as she was hardly fit to drive in the first place so I called around (don't have a personal doctor (and thanks to Obamacare) have only 20K deductable insurance and a call to the ER said I would have a three hour wait (unless it was life threatning)--I called the box and told them that I would have to try to do the WOD 0n Saturday! Missed out on the big party, photo shoot and the excitement that they all had planned for me (as the only one with a chance to move on to some sort of Regional event)--LONG STORY SHORTENED UP A LITTLE BIT----with nothing I could do but hope what ever the heck was going on would subside, I lay at home taking Advil/Tylenol and drinking lots of liquids till Sunday evening (Praying and believing that by Monday I would be able to go in and at least Post a score with the hopes of staying in the top 200?--Monday at 8am (in a severely weakened state) I did indeed feel better and my Coach, and a 1/2 a dozen friends/supporters and a qualified judge met me at the box and I MANAGED TO DO 14min of work in 27:47 and submit a score! Needless to say it was the hardest darn WOD I have ever done!
After the scores were all validated I had dropped to 9th in the NW and 107th out of the 459 Masters 60+ that still remained
I packed up the Motorhome and headed to Bellingham to be with my wife and Family-(Mom still hanging on with a uncertain future)

As for me it appears that I POISONED MY SYSTEM doing Myofascial Release of the PSOAS muscle that brought on the beginnings of: Rhabdomyolysis is the breakdown of muscle fibers that leads to the release of muscle fiber contents (myoglobin) into the bloodstream. Myoglobin is harmful to the kidney and often causes kidney damage.

In the week and a half since I am feeling stronger (working out at Jogo Crossfit in Bellingham) with no apparent long term damage?

Looking forward to doing the best I can under the circumstances in the Video-Regionals Next Week

PLEASE continue to pray for my Family to remain strong during these trying times and for There comfort in knowing that God has a better place awaiting their Mom when the time has come.
