Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes and welcomes!! I did great on the "Boat Filthy Fifty".. I finished in 33 min and 1 sec!! Then after 2 min recovery I did 50 med ball cleans --just to add something else because I didn't have a way to do my least fav in the "real filthy fifty" --wall ball--at the dock!!

Now that I am officially a "member" of your group, I will have to tune in more often. I am really excited there are so many "fit and fifty" (and even higher!) people out there!

Deb, I do have to say that your Fran time ROCKS!! I hear what you are sayin' about the shoulder thing. We just don't heal like we used to. I have been really working lower body because my shoulders SCREAM at me when I try to go heavy overhead. It is still my goal this year to do a ring dip without a band and to get 100# over head!! :pepper: I wanted them both by my 50th, and although I got many other goals, I missed these.. movin' on... :kicking0:

Thanks again everyone for the support.. this group rocks!!:highfive:

Interesting. I'll ask Mark where he gets his programing tips. Going to hit another today.

6/4 WOD

“The Single Parent”
While holding a medicine ball (20#/14#), please perform the following movements:
50 Overhead Lunges
50 Box Jumps
50 Med Ball Cleans
50 Med Ball V-Twists
50 Burpees

21:40 to 20" box. Very disappointed with my performance. Couldn't even do most of the box jumps, had to resort to stepping up and down the 20" box. I think I am overextending myself, at Crossfit and generally. I think next week will feature lots of rest.

Welcome [B]Mark and Marianne[/B].
Thanks for props [B]JJ, John, Steve[/B].
Nice Fran time [B]Deb[/B]!...its great when you feel good about a work out like that.

We had open gym last night and I did my work out the last hour, only guys there were all the trainers. Plus I got 1:1 time with my coach...Danny. Doing this was a good reminder for me how important getting coached is. It's hard to make progress working out by yourself with out feedback, specially when you get coached by an expert. Just a few changes to my OHS form and I added 15 lbs to my PR. I really felt I could have put more weight on but did not want to over do it, plus I still had a WOD ahead of me. My goal for OHS is to be doing my body weight (195lbs).

6-3-10
Overhead Squat 1-1-1-1-1

[B]135, 135, 145, 155, 160 PR[/B]

warmed up with 45lb bar (5x), 95lb (5x), 115 (3x). failed once at 135 when I unlocked slightly, got a little twinge in the left shoulder
3 key items that improved my lift;
1) 2x executive stretching by kelley starrett
2) narrower grip on the bar, about 3" from collars, was about 1.5" from collar
3) keeping wrist straight (not bent back)

Rest 5 min, then

For time:
-20 hang power snatch, 75 lbs
-20 burpees

Times [B]2:15, 2:42, 3:15, 3:12[/B] (one minute rest sure went fast)

Rest one minute, then repeat for a total of 4 cycles

Extra work: 2 x 20 GHD sit-ups

[B]Terry[/B], Amen to that, brother. The few (very few) times that I have had a coach around, I hit PRs like it was my job. I told my wife that my only prerequisite for our next PCS was a post/town with a XFit affiliate.
