Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
I've been locked in a room with colleagues doing the "Annual Planning" drill which includes the night out so no workout for my yesterday. Nonetheless this was posted on the CFTC blog today,

[url]http://whole9life.com/2010/01/client-or-patient/[/url] (wfs)

I'll have to say, in the year I've been crossfitting I've been for the most part, injury free. Maybe some aches and pains but no injuries. In fact, a proper workout will usually loosen things up and make me feel better. So I totally subscribe to the thought in this post. I think following proper technique at our advanced exerience level is even more critical.

I've got another solid day of meetings but will try and get some "technique" in later in the day.

Man, everybody has been busy. Me too. Spent every day since last friday on the road. I got to visit Ft. Bragg and look into their new "functional fitness room," which is really an undercover Crossfit faciltity. Super nice with enough stuff to keep a couple of company's of paratroopers busy for a while. It's situated in the middle of the 82nd area but my SF buds tell me they use it quite often. Unfortunately, I couldn't work out in it. I did manage a Deck-o-cards WO one day where each of the suites represents an exercise (i.e. spades=burpees, hearts=squats, etc) and you do the number of reps indicated on the card...(face cards=11,12,13 and an ace=15) as quickly as as you can deal from a shuffled deck. A fun, fast workout...perfect for a hotel room. I think I'm gonna call it the Deck-o-Death.

WOD—

"Lynne"
5 rounds, as many reps as possible
Bodyweight Bench Press

(Since it's a benchmark, I did it as RX'ed: 205 BP, and dead-hang, unassisted pullups, rested between sets)

5/4, 5/4, 5/3, 4/3, 3/2 TOTAL=39

Saturday 1/23/10

Team WOD

In teams of 2 complete:

-150 Kettlebell Swings
-225 DB Push Press 35/20
-300 Situps

Me and another of the "Old Guys" (46) in our affiliate went at vs a couple of the "Young Guys". We (25:20) didn't beat them (23:50) but considering our combined age was about twice as theirs I think we did ok. In fact, I am only a few weeks away from being the combined age of the Young Guys. I'd call that a win.

I was pretty happy with my performance on the OHS, basically banged them out and got fairly deep on them. Good for me, considering I could barely do 2-3 at 75 a couple of months ago. Good workout, I was pretty gassed and sweated afterward.

I forgot to post last Friday - 01/22/09. We did 3-3-3-3-3 Back Squats and I was terrible. Mentally, I was unprepared to squat without the security of a squat rack and I never seemed to be positioned properly over the dynamax ball so I would squat and miss it. Ughh.

Saturday was a scheduled rest day and Sunday was an unscheduled rest day.

Today - 01/25/10
7AM workout at CrossFit Confluence

WU - 1000m row; 2X normal WU; additional stretching lunges and other weird stretching thingies

WOD:
*Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of

15 Push ups
12 Ring dips
9 Push jerks @ 115lbs.

knee push-ups again :mad:
box dips
45# bar

6 rounds + 2 push ups

Wow. My left shoulder started to fail on round five and I struggled through round 6. I drove home with one arm because my left arm was immobilized.

We did a deck of cards workout two Sundays ago, but pulled the facecards and jokers = burpees. Got a chance to repeat it yesterday and improved everything except for time. It was awesome!

I haven't been very good about checking in here, but things are well and I am still loving CrossFit!:cool:

WOD: AMRAP in 15 minutes of

I didn't realize (didn't look in the log) that we did this back in early Nov. I did it at 12:47 but used a 95# OHS. Average power output a little down since last workout. That's consistent with how I feel. Recovery lately has been slow. Still feel a bit sore by the next workout. Diet maybe? Sleep? Not sure.

Besides good old fashioned rest, what do you all do for recovery? I know we are pretty anti supplement in general but anything you all find helpful?

Hey man,

Great question. I find the following really helps me when I'm feeling rundown/overtrained:

- eat really well, lots of protein (meat)
- no alcohol
- take a couple of grams of fish oil, some 5-HTP and/or 1/2 to 1 milligram of melatonin before bed
- get to bed early with a book (I am currently reading Primal Mind, Primal Body by Nora GedGauddas)

Today - 01/26/10
Noon workout at CrossFit Confluence

4 rounds for time of
Row 500m
50 squats

I thought I had this nailed! Rowing and squats! Two things I really like. What could go wrong?!?

I was starving at 11:00 so I ate my normal post-noon workout meal. What a stupid idea. After one round I was nauseous and during the round-two row I had to stop to keep from summoning Pukie. I finished round two and then went from nausea to stomach cramps. I kept stopping and going and finally finished in a pitiful 22:something. Not my finest moment, but at least I didn't quit. About two blocks from the box I had to pull the car over. That was a first for me. Ick.

Recovery? Fish oil and Massage (at least 60 minute deep tissue once a month..also use massage sticks and foam roller).

I couldn't get to the gym today so I did the deck-o-cards WO again, this time though hearts=pushups, clubs=abmat butterfly situps, diamonds=#35 goblet squats, spades=#20 KB press, (J=11 reps, Q=12, K=13, Ace=15 and Jokers=10 burpees ([B]thanks Diane[/B]). Between keeping my 4 year old from crushing his little toes with the #5kb and fighting him for the abmat we finished in a terribly slow 35:30.3 but had a great time doing it. Ever tried to teach a 4 year old how to do a squat? :rofl:

I am on a 3 on 1 off 2 on 1 off but it seems I always end up doing some type of work maybe just pushups or pullups or I work on the OLYs, I do feel the fish oil is something that helps in a lot of areas and I try to eat clean a Zone Paleo combo.
