Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Congrats JT!!

Alden- Sorry about your back!:mad: I feel your pain!!

Nice work guys!!

400m run
100+ SUs
10 leg swings, each leg, both direction
10 Air Squats
15 sec fingertip plank hold
10 push ups
10 bar taps
5, 2 pull ups
10 45# Presses
10 45# OHS

Strict Press 1-1-1-1-1
Push Press 3-3-3-3-3
Push Jerk 5-5-5-5-5

Strict Press 65-85-95-115-135-155 (0)-145(0)-140(0)-135
Push Press 65-65-115-135-155 (2)-135
Push Jerk 65-95-115-135(3)-125

[I]I did this last on 17 May. I couldn't hit the loads I did then. This was frustrating since 135 felt so easy on the strict press! Going to the Push Press & Push jerk were tougher since you had to do more reps per set...[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
11/4 WOD
A. Reverse Tabata Superman Holds
These were quite easy.

B1. Overhead Squats: 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 @60 sec rest
Pleased to get a couple at 135. They felt good.

B2. 2 Strict Pull ups to 3 C2B to Max Kipping PU's, 5 sets @60 sec rest
**Coach's Note - No rest between pull ups on part B. Go right from strict to C2B and finish with as many kipping pull ups as you can do.
7 kipping PU's-6-6-5-5

C. 5 Rounds For Time @95#/65#
3 Press
5 Push Press
10 Split Jerks (Alt Leg per jerk)
First set straight through then it became a train wreck. Probably cheated a bunch of reps, particularly strict presses.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
11/5 WOD
A. EMOM 12: 4 x 10 M Shuttle Runs

B. November Monthly Throwdown
20 Min to Find Your 3RM Hang Squat Clean
155, a couple fails at 160.

Liked everything about this except my misses at 160 (current bodyweight). Felt the hips pop and dropped quickly and deeply under the bar. I think all the KB swinging helped, I'm interested to see what this becomes at the end of the month.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Wednesday November 5, 2014

Walked 1.5 miles
Rowed 1k

Prowler Push Pyramid
No words can describe how horrible and wonderful and painful and fulfilling this was... Start with an empty prowler and a pile of 45# plates at point A.
Push the prowler to point B (which was 30 yards of blacktop away). Walk back to point A. Pick up a 45# pound plate and farmer carry it to prowler.
Push prowler to point A then back to point B. Walk back to point A. Pick up another 45# pound plate and farmer carry it to prowler. Rinse and repeat until you have the whole pile of 45# pound plates on prowler (which today was luckily only 4 plates) Rinse and repeat unloading the prowler.
Stop to hurl and spit and curse as needed

After the prowler pyrmiad, which I did by myself in the twilight, while putting it all away, the class doing the WOD in the box was doing their CrossFit total. A couple of 20 somethings were pretty impressed with their 300# deadlift and for some inexplicable reason were disrespecting one of my forty-something friends who had just deadlifted 405#. He was, understandably, pretty pleased with himself and, equally understandably, confused about why the kids were disrespecting him. I know, it makes no sense why they'd disrespect someone twenty years older who just deadlifted 100 pounds more than they did. As I walked by I decided to support my friend so we went back and forth doing 405# deadlifts for a while. So these were "cold bar" deadlifts for me. At some point the 20 somethings felt shame and skulked away and I felt better for my friend.
