Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Our new box opened this week at Crossfit Hickory. Great facility!

Today's workout was a 20 minute AMRAP: 5 deadlifts, 185 lbs. for ladies (I used 175 lbs.), 10 wallballs, 20 lbs. for ladies (I scaled to 16 lbs.), 250 m row. Eeked out 6 rounds at the buzzer.

Wish I hadn't had to scale.

2/5 WOD (off Main Site at SBAC)

For time:
30 Handstand push-ups
40 Pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1.5 poods
60 Sit-ups
70 Burpees

21:36 with one pad for HSPU.
I was pretty hungry going into this which affected my ability to do long sets. HSPU started with 16 straight, then devolved to 2 at end. Pull ups similarly were in sets of 4 by the end. K-bell swings five sets of 10. Sit ups went more or less straight through, just slow with mini break at 8 to 10. Burpees finally done in sets of 10 except last set was 20. This was just a long slow grind.

2/6 WOD

5 Rounds for Count
Max Bodyweight Bench Press (my weight = 160#)
Max Pull Ups
Take two minutes or so in between movements, but try to stay consistent between rounds.
Your end score is the accumulation of bench presses and pull ups together.

91. 4*/18; 7/14; 5/14; 3/10; 4/12
* First round BP @ 155#, then down to 145#. We were supposed to hit 10 reps at the chosen weight, which is why I went down to 145#. Even then did not reach 10 reps. Very pleased with pull ups, except everybody else was hitting even bigger numbers. LOTS of pull ups this morning.

[I]Squats & Ring Dips. How hard can that be? BRUTAL!! Squats weren't bad, but the Ring Dips were killers! Could only do at best 5 in a row and it started feeling like someone was stabbing my right shoulder with a big knife! Thank goodness for the squats!!

I need more ring work!! :mad:[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Bill - As weird as it sounds, I'm looking forward to be able to work on ring dips again as I get my shoulder sorted out. We've got a dip tower but the handles are too wide; I think that doing dips on that thing is what started my shoulder problems in the first place. I started doing ring dips and although I couldn't do very many at a time, it felt a lot better not he shoulders.

02/07/12 Pushups, Swings & Squats

Warmup: Squats, shoulder mobility, dynamic stretching

Workout: 21-15-9
DB Swings (30#)

Cash out: Walking lunges, DB shoulder press

This was a "Hotel workout."

Rant on
Where the heck are the pull-up bars? I travel frequently and have never found a pull-up bar in a hotel fitness center. Always a couple of treadmills, sometimes a bike, sometimes dumbbells (up to 40# if lucky) and maybe a universal gym. I find myself choosing hotels based on the photos of the hotel fitness facility. And the choices are never that good.
