Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hello everyone...i'm new here.
This thread seemed intersting,so i joined.
I turned 50 few months ago, been training with weights since 14yrs old.
Really a "hardgainer" never have i gained easy on strenght or muscle :)
For the last, some 8-10 years i have added more and more crossfit aspects to my training, few year ago even dumped the usual bodypart split and nowdays i train more and more crossfit styled bodybuilding training or pure crossfit.
I have a bad knee arthrosis so any kind of jumping, running heavy squats are forbidden, so that in mind i train in a regular gym and do my "own style" of crossfit...and really really enjoy it.
This week i have trained like this:

Bike 10 min
Kettlebell swing 10reps ->
leg raise (on a legraise/dip rack) 10 reps ->
one arm dumbell row 5reps
two warm up round and then 5 rounds with
24kg kettlebell swing -10reps
10 reps on legraises
40kg (about 90lbs) one arm row- 5 reps
I did 5 rounds with 2min rest between each round
Then few sets of curls and tricep presses to finish.

At home
Dumbell curls 10reps/12kg db (ca 27lbs) ->
Push ups 10reps
10rounds with 1-2 min rest between rounds.

Bike 10min
Light leg presses about 200lbs 20reps x5
Alternating dumbell upright rows
10reps/20kg (44lbs) ->
Toes to bar 5reps ->
Db hammer curls 10/20kg
5rounds - about 1-2 min rest between rounds
Crosstrainer 15min

Consept row 15 min (3139m)
Back extension -> rope pushdowns -> leg raise
3rounds for warm up
"romanian deadlift" combined with 500m consept row
5reps on romanian deadlift starting from 100kg (220lbs) adding
10kg each round for as long where i did not get 5 reps anymore
and from there directly to consept row for 500m
5 reps/100kg -> 500m row: 2:07
110kg -> 1:58
120kg (264lbs) ->2:04
130kg -> 2:08
140kg -> 2:15
150kg (330lbs) ->2:14
3reps/160kg -> 2:22
