Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
today did my interval work with fins and kick board in a different fashion from the freestyle:

3X50 kicking w. 15 sec. rest in between for 4 rounds. Each round separated by a gentle 50. It just took an additional 50 to get the heart rate pounding up.

@Pat, oh I hate those fin and kickboard sessions, they make my calves cramp...

Sunday August 17, 2014

Some stretching

21 minutes of continuous activity with light kettlebells and a roller wheel (which really gave my back a good stretch)

some HSPU skill practice, some false grip ring pullup practice, some dip practice.

Overall an easy day.

Watched Tim complete swings 2001-2500 of the 10k kb swing challenge. The kettlebell looked a little heavier today...

[I]This was a scorcher!! The thrusters were brutal. I had to break up the thruster reps into subsets until the last 3 rounds. The back squats were a rest, but I could feel them by last two rounds. I guess I could have gotten a faster time if I could've kept holding on to the bar. Still, I wasn't the slowest time on the board.[/I]

Hey Bill, actually, all your WOD's seem like grinders to me! Pretty good time on that last one.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Sunday August 24, 2014

Watched KB swings 4001-4500 of the 10k KB challenge by my training partner. His KB seems to be getting larger...


Did 20 minutes of constant motion under light tension.
5x65# deadlifts, 10x10#kb curls, 10x10#kb presses, 10x10#kb snatches, 10x10#kb swings, 3 pullups, 5 rounds.

GHD stretching.

10 TGUs with 10# kb

The 10 pounder was perfect for rehab. Enough to get me sweaty and to pay attention, not enough to re-injure.

So I think I've decided to go back to my split style of movements.
The Oly shoes and squats are just too much on my hips and pelvis.
I went looking for instructional videos and found these three amazing videos.

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h32BVGSIhSs[/url]
[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXZ3LtRVdig[/url]
[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3KkZfRCuPs[/url]

The third lift is practically unbelievable! Watch his left hand. It starts out in reverse deadlift and he has to flip it to catch it at the top!!!

JT Kalnay 08-25-2014 10:33 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Monday August 25, 2014

Warmup
Goblet squat hold, pass throughs, hip flexors, ankles, walking lunges, overhead walking lunges.

Snatch Practice
10xPVC
10x31#
10x65#
5x95#
5x135#
1x140#

Did all these split style wearing sneakers, instead of squat style wearing Oly shoes. This was MUCH easier on my hips and back.

Snatch Deadlifts
3-3-3-3-3
135-185-185-185-185

Am going to go back to single lifts on single days during the week with an accessory and then try for training weight on Saturdays with my coach.

Pat Quigley 08-25-2014 02:17 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

10 wall ball shots (20/14)
15 toes to bar
400m run with a kettlebell (53/35)

Rx
38:31

[I]I knew this was going to be bad when the times on the board were above 23 min!! One of the guys was in the middle of it when I got to the box. It looked tough. He told me to hoist the KB on my shoulder & walk. I did the 1st set of WBs straight, but the TTBs went in 4 subsets. The KB runs(walks) I was able to carry the KB on my shoulder for about 100m (a lap around the Basketball Court). I shifted the KB while on the run. I could feel my hammies by the end of the last round! Slowest time on the board, but at least I got it done!![/I]

[I]Most of the guys on the board did 95# or 115#. 95# seemed a good way to go. I power snatched the 95# & the OHSs didn't bother my wrist. But I could feel my back in the later rounds. This was a just keep moving WOD.
I wasn't the slowest time on the board. [/I]

@Cliff, adapt, improvise, overcome, well-done!

Wednesday August 27, 2014

Goblet squat, pass throughs, walking lunges, walking overhead lunges

split clean and split jerk practice.

Got some decent weight overhead.

Need to drill using the heavy weight as a ceiling that I push against to get myself low, rather than trying to push the bar up, I need to push myself down then just stand up!

Julie Foucher was training by herself at the same time I was training by myself, she's a very interesting person to talk to.

Rest Day

The Thursday and Friday before Labor Day are two of my favorite days to live in downtown Cleveland. The Air show is sat/sun/mon over the labor day weekend, but on Thursday and Friday the Blue Angles and other jets practice over downtown. They buzz between the buildings and do all kinds of crazy things. It's very exciting.

One of the guys in the box asked me if I would take up programming WODs for CFWP since the guy who's doing them know is deploying...:yikes: I know enough about CrossFit to be dangerous. Not sure I know enough to do justice with the programming.:rolleyes:[/I]

@Bill, a "contentious relationship" with Elizabeth? Well said. Might have to steal that for an upcoming book!

Friday August 29, 2014

Simulated Oly Comp

Snatch warmups
One attempt at 135, 145, 155, made all three attempts

C&J warmups
One attempt at 205, 215, 225, made all three attempts

Given this result, I think I am going to compete tomorrow at the Speed Shop Open. I don't know if I can get the 182kg total needed to qualify for the 2015 Pan Ams, but will give it a shot. May take a more aggressive approach to opening weights as an experiment.

A good day lifting at the Reaction Krav Maga + CrossFit Speed Shop Open today. Thanks to the Speed Shop and all its volunteers for putting on a top notch meet. Thanks also to Coach Daniel Bell and Coach Mike Walker and Coach Kat Lee for such excellent game day management and help learning to lift. Thanks also to Coach Carl Dei for keeping an eye on me during the week at CTown CrossFit. Had a career day going 70-74-78(Pr) on the snatch and 104-107-113(PR) on the C&J for a PR total of 191. This meets the qualifying standard for the 2015 Pan Am Games in Puerto Rico next June and is a big step towards my goal of qualifying for the 2016 World Championships. There's still a long way to go, but every step forward is a step in the right direction. Congratulations to all the Rubber City Weightlifting crew who lifted some serious weight. See you next Saturday.

[I]I clipped 1:14 off of my last attempt on 11 April 2014! The pull ups were still tough, but I was able to do them in subsets of 5, 4 or 3 reps. I ran at YOMP (Your Own MIlitary Pace) and I did the thrusters in subsets of 3, which helped...[/I]

Warmup
Lots of squats, walking lunges, and ankle work.

C&J
10x65
10x95
5x115

Just trying to move perfectly today. My back was a little tender so I didn't want to go heavy so I focused on feeling every part of the movement.

Rest day on tap for tomorrow.
