Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

last nite while everybody else was doing the 12 days of x mas....which i kinda missed doing even though every year i had done it i messed up the workout very badly ..... :rofl:

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.

This was a long way from my best performance. I lost my double unders for pretty much the whole WOD, so I either struggled through them one at a time or substituted two-for-one singles. Russian swings the whole time @ 1.5 pood, and box step up starting about halfway through. Made just one attempt at muscle up but it wasn’t even close. Push presses at 35# dumbbells all went straight through, though.

I’m experimenting with intermittent fasting with no eating until noon, meaning I do fasted WODs, and I also think I’m coming down with a cold. Plus I just came back from two weeks of vacation. (Excuses excuses). Kind of a perfect storm of things that stood in the way of a great performance. Oh well, still a fun workout with lots of good cheer this morning.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Claw, fasting until lunch means you miss out on a pound of bacon at breakfast. That's a life not worth living...

Tuesday December 23, 2014

Mobility Work
Rowed 5k in 25:04
Mobility Work
Overhead lunges

Alden Hingle 12-23-2014 08:37 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
:thanx: Guys. I like swings. ;)

@Claw - I tired the intermittent fasting for a while but came to the conclusion I couldn't comfortably get enough protein eating in the reduced window. I dropped weight quickly but some of it was lean body mass so I went back to three meals a day. That being said, the "holiday spirit" and "spirits" have added some girth that needs to go away.

12/23 OH Press
WU: Row 1km; pull-ups x5; OH press 45 x5

Overhead press 50, 60, 75 x5/ 85, 100 x6/ 105 x8/ 60 x12
Weighted pull-ups (+21) 8, 8, 7, 7
KB press 35 x10x2/ 45 x6

Ran out of time to do swings. Skiing tomorrow and had to get the dogs to the kennel before it closed.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Merry Christmas!
30 minutes box steps, 14" box

Have been doing box steps for years with using this method: step up with the left leg, lower down with the right leg, one rep. 10 per leg, then switch. For some reason today at 530 reps I decided to step up with the left leg and lower with the left leg, one rep. 10 per leg. Seems more like a lunge and seems tougher. This will by my new default for box steps.

Friday December 26, 2014

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
12/24 Skiing at Breckenridge. 17k vertical; 13 runs. A great first ski day of the season!

12/26 Split Squats
WU: Row 1km; straddle hops x25; pull-ups 5, 10, 10, 10

Split squats 15, 18, 24 x10/ 27, 30 x12/ 33 x20
Goblet squats 35, 45, 55 x12
KB swings 35# x100 (3:05)/ 45# x15

I learned a lesson about coffee and working out in the morning. Somewhere around swing #90, I got a major headache and pressure from the exertion. I'm always winded but have never had head pain before. I am assuming it was due to working out only two hours after 2 cups of strong coffee. I don't usually work out until mid-to-late afternoon. I'm going to wait four hours today between coffee and swings to see if it make a difference.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Thanks about the deads, I was kinda bummed b/c my PR is 500 and I could only get 465, but not every day is a PR kind of day...

Sunday December 28, 2014

TGUs to 45# on each side. Very encouraging to be regaining TGU functionality.

Then, it was "share the front squat pain day" in the Shed... (my training partner is doing a front squat program to increase his front squat PR).

Front squat warmup to 155, then
4x4 at 175# (tough)

Then did Death By Kettlebell for 20 minutes.
1-11 overhead with 35#
12-19 eye height with 20#
20 overhead with 35#

Then did a bonus 10 KBS at 45#. It is very encouraging to be regaining KB strength and conditioning!

Monday December 29, 2014

Rowed 5.5k in 30:37

Did jerk motions with very light weights.

Am kinda sore from yesterday's front squats and KB swings.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[QUOTE=JT Kalnay;1246813]moving pavers for time and marital bliss? that's functional fitness...


Yep. I'm not very smart but I could figure out the right answer on this one. ;)

12/29 Deadlifts
WU: Row 1km; straddle hops; air squats

Deadlifts 65, 75, 85 x5/ 105 x8/ 120 x6/ 130 x20
Goblet squats 45, 55, 65, 75 x10

Next month I'll make a big jump on the weight for the deadlifts. I started back very conservatively on the modified Wendler program (8/6/3). Wanted to make sure everything held together and I didn't re-irritate the sciatic nerve. So far, so good so I'll keep doing what I'm doing.

Cliff Miller 12-30-2014 07:45 AM

12/30 WOD (Open Gym)
One day of 10K Kettlebell swing challenge
5 rounds of:
10 swings
:30 rest
15 swings
:30 rest
25 swings
:30 rest
50 swings
3:00 rest.
34:10 (I skipped the 1-2-3 reps of a strength move during the rests).

Splits (including 3x:30 rests) = 4:16, 4:30*, 4:30, 4:29, 4:25. (* = possible timekeeping/counting error) The grip is what goes. I can see where 20 days of this would make a difference, but I think it would also bore the living crap out of me. This is something I'll repeat sporadically, aiming for longer sets in the rounds of 50.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Everyone's been Kick@$$ during the holidays!!

[I]First WOD in a week. I've been wrapped up with all the Christmas stuff! Also, Saturday, I got a new granddaughter! (8 lbs & 21 in) :D (Grandbaby WOD: Pick up the Baby AMRAP!)

Though, I've been doing 10 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) a day just because. I could feel not doing any WODs for a while! The push jerks went easy until 185#, I wish I tried 175#.
The Tabata was tough for the Pull Ups and the Goblet squats. The GS were more like weighted squats and I could feel sharp pain in my right knee. I went away to the later rounds. This was brutal[/I]

Some warmup and mobility work.

Then snatch practice:
5x155# (went 5 for 5, very encouraging)
2x165# (went 0 for 2, some days you get the bear, some days the bear gets you).

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Cliff, yes it is...

Tuesday December 31, 2014 (pm session)

I was sitting by the window working and the early winter sun was just streaming through the window. I knew it was cold outside (e.g., 19F) but the sunlight was just too tempting. The ground was completely frozen so I put on some running shoes and walked really fast around the farm once. I even broke into a trot twice, for about 200 yards each time. I used to love being a runner. This is the best my back has felt since I hurt it July 8th. Hopefully the new year will bring some trotting and maybe even jogging as I embark on the quest to qualify for the 2016 World Masters Weightlifting Championships.

Bill Hoogsteden 12-31-2014 06:16 PM

JT Kalnay 01-01-2015 10:50 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Bill, you have shoulders, keep at it.

Thursday January 1, 2015

Happy New Years!

TGUs up to 53#, very encouraging.
It may be a coincidence that my back is feeling better since adding TGUs and KB swings back in, but it may not be a coincidence...

2 front squats @ 45, 65, 95, 115, 135, & 155#
3 sets of 3 Front Squats @ 185#

Friday January 2nd, 2015

Slept in until almost 9 after staying up to watch the Ohio State Football game.

There were ideal conditions for walking today, 40F, ground still frozen from yesterday, early winter sunshine, no wind, no bugs, so I walked/trotted 1 mile.

Went once around the farm alternating fast walking (100 steps) with trotting (40 steps). I used to make it around the farm in about 7:30. Did it today in 13:38 I can't remember the last time I made it around the farm in under fourteen minutes, so this is very encouraging. I made a few goals for 2015, one is to participate in an Oly meet with a reasonable expectation of qualifying for the 2016 world championships. Another was to get around the farm better than in 2014.

JT Kalnay 01-02-2015 10:36 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Friday January 2nd, 2015 (pm session)

Extensive mobility work.

C&J Practice at 1513 CrossFit with Coach Mike in attendance.
2x90kg (at this point I realized I was feeling pretty good, which surprised the hell out of me b/c I had squatted and done Death by Kettelbell yesterday, and had trotted a mile around the farm today)
1x93kg (at this point I decided to see what I had)
1x110kg (miss, hit my chin with the bar on the jerk)
1x114kg, PR attempt, about a dozen people watching, made the clean, missed the jerk, but it's the closest I've come. Very encouraging on a day where I shouldn't really have been able to take a realistic poke at a PR. I am paying for this now, and tomorrow will certainly be a rest day.

Rest Day

I suppose it's a good thing there are NFL playoff games today, b/c I'm pretty much catatonic after yesterday's beatings and watching New London win a varsity boys bball game in triple overtime.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Happy New Years gang. Holidays are over, guests are come and I am back in the gym. Set a resolution today: break 1200 in a competition. 2011 and 2012 came close. Right now that involves getting back to the same strength level as 2011 or 2012. Not there yet and have 3 competitions I could enter over the next 3 months.

today was back squat day:

5X285, 3X300, 1X 345.
5X10 Good mornings
3X10 BS w. 135 and chains. (for speed).

Wasn't feeling it today, felt weak and slow, got in my volume and went to the climbing gym. Climbed 5 routes at Kendall Cliffs, hardest was probably 5.3. Climbing is more fun than Oly lifting....

[I]155 felt pretty easy. But since I was using iron plates, I just couldn't feel comfortable with 165 even though I pulled them high. As for the metcon, focused on my form because i could see one guy do some awesome squat cleans! I got the 1st round done in under 4 min, but it was down from there...[/I]
