Crossfit class at Lifetime Fitness, Tempe. After warm up, with set starts on a minute, increase reps by one on the minute, increase dumbbell weight each set. Max sets are ten or any set in which the work from the last set is still ongoing.

Exercises were: squat, Olympic sit ups, and DB push press.
With the DB's on hand, I went from:22.5, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55.
Got in 7 sets + 8 squats and 4 PP.

Cash out: Tabata Mountain Climbers. got in 128 in 4 minutes.

[QUOTE=Pat Quigley;766688]Terry, that picture is incredible. You are a lion who has probably not reached his winter. In many ways, I know that I am reaching mine. As I sit this beautiful Saturday morning and look over the material for next month Level 1, I am realizing that something is missing. I've alluded to this in earlier posts. How to translate this group of concepts and exercises into a system of continually challenging events for a population whose capacity is otherwize declining? Crossfit has a specialty certification for Kids. Maybe there needs to be one that reflects Gerontology? How to measure capacity? How to measure recovery? How to measure morphological limitations that suggest physical challenges without harm to tender joints? How to set goals for continuous improvement that respect declining limits in each of the main areas of fitness?

Anyhow just some thoughts. Leaving in an hour or so for my Crossfit class.[/QUOTE]

Pat, I admire your dedication and humility. I also admire your lifts!

I do believe it's possible to optimize your hormonal capacity, if not recapture some of it, through clean living, sleep, stretching, exercise and diet. I mean, look at Jack Lalanne!

Impossible is Nothing (I say with a twingy back and really sore lats)!!! :)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I worked out with my lovely wife today. I have been training her for the last few months, all I can say is that it has been pretty interesting. But really she has done well. I did take time to do 150 assisted push ups, 10 to 15 at a time.

Terry that was a great video, very inspiring. I can't imagine being that active and having that much energy in my nineties, I can only hope.
