12/6 WOD

2-2-2-2-2-2-2 Hang Power Cleans

95-115-125-135-145(f, 1 only)
Ha ha, just noticed there were 7 rounds, not 5. I wondered why everybody was doing so many! Anyway, just couldn't get elbows around fast enough at 145#. Feeling this one in the wrists, and I've been feeling it in the wrists a lot lately. I think I need to start taping my wrists for lifts like this.

Followed by:
3 Rounds of 1 Minute of work at each station
Row for Calories
Max Ring Dips
Max Dumbell Push Presses
Max Sit Ups

227 with 35# dumbells. Kind of a low score, but I'm pleased with it. First WOD in a week, and I went kind of heavy on dumbells and didn't use a band on ring dips. Particularly happy with my rows. First minute was 18 cals. in 60 seconds, and later rounds were slower only because of transition time into rower. I'm really leaning back and end and pulling cable as far back as I can, so I'm getting a lot of power per stroke. Otherwise, my numbers were pretty consistent. This was lite FGB lite: 4 minutes work instead of 5, and the exercises were a little easier. This was Fight Gone Unpleasant.

[B]Michelle[/B] - Eventually you find yourself remembering how something used to kill you and now its pretty easy? Then you're probably ready to do more. If I scale my weight up and I'm using good form but going slower, Im fine with it. Personally I always shoot for good form/full ROM wherever possible regardless. I think you have less chance of hurting yourself that way as well.

[B]12.06.2010-Monday-Day 1[/B]

Warmup: Run 400, squats, lunges, et al, shoulder mobility, stretch & triggerpt

For time:
buy-in= 50 kettlebell swings - 24kg (16kg)
3 rounds of: 10 sumo deadlift high pulls - 115# (75#), 50 squats
cash-out= 30 knees to elbows
[B]14:27 rx[/B] KB unbroken, sumos no big. the k2e were the worst and I mistakenly did 50. duh. down to 3s for the last 20-25. I thought this would take 10 mins. or so. Weirdly, it flurried all day and yet I wasnt so cold in the garage tonite. That was all I did.... (hockey, football :))

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I've had distal clavicle resection, osteoarthritis... cut that off, got rid of the loose bone, got rid of scar tissue, cleaned something on the subscap.

It was great! :) Pain was gone right away. Good PT is a must, I realized I was in trouble when the two guys were talking behind the curtain "have you ever done a knee?" "No." "Me either." "Have you ever done a shoulder?" "No." "Me Either." I had to get out of there, they were making me lift weights and i couldnt lift my arm, was getting frozen shoulder and they were getting annoyed. My new PT said, oh snap they never loosed your back muscles - you're not frozen! ROM was back in a few weeks. (idiots)

Good luck Cliff!!

12/7 WOD

"Deck of Death”
Hearts = Burpees
Diamonds = Knees to Elbows
Clubs = Air Squats
Spades = Mountain climbers (4=1)
Jokers = 400 M Sprint

32:46 (whole group). This was fun, but a bit chaotic to start. Burpees turned in to "crawlies" (i.e. crawl down and up) toward the end. K2E's turned to K2Waist towards the end. Each suit was 105 reps (actually, spades were 420 mtn climbers), so that was a ton of reps!
