Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
[quote=Alden Hingle;1031198]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.[/quote]

Agreed! When we went to our new PU rig, we lost our 3 MU stations. We also have to set up the rings, so we tend not to do them as much as we should. And I'm feeling it!

[quote=Alden Hingle;1031198]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.
Rant off[/quote]

Straight on that!! Hotels tend to be 10 to 20 years behind the times. I always try to bring my jump rope along and see if I can make it to a local box!

[quote=Martha Lamb;1030570]Our new box opened this week at Crossfit Hickory. Great facility!...Wish I hadn't had to scale.[/quote]

2/9 WOD

Front Squats:
165-185-185-185(f, 1 only)-165

Followed by:
Kettlebell/Burpee Ladder of Fun
Round 1 = 1 KB Swing and 1 Burpee (rest for remainder of minute)
Round 2 = 2 KB Swings and 2 Burpees (rest for remainder of minute)
Round 3 = 3 KB Swings and 3 Burpees (rest for the remainder of minute)
10 rounds @ 1.5 pood plus 11 KB swings + 7 burpees.

I was worried that my diet -- I'm down about 5 pounds since Paleo challenge began and 10 pounds from day before my cruise on 12/20 -- was weakening me, since 3 x 185 FS was so hard. I then looked back at my log and see that my one-rep max is only 195 (failed at 205) and my three rep max is 185 (failed at 195), so doing two sets of 3 x 185 does not represent any kind of failure.

The Ladder of Fun looked scary from the beginning. Figured if I got past 8 I was doing OK. Barely completed the round of 10 and went straight to the round of 11, where I made it to the 7th burpee before time was up.

Final body fat testing is tomorrow at 10 am. I feel like a fighter trying to make weight. My juicer will probably be responsible for dinner tonight. Sorry in advance for my *****iness today, I'll just put that out there now. Also thanks to Danette for a few last-minute tips about Sunday's Half Marathon. She seems to be taking it more seriously than I am. I hope I'm not making a strategic error here. My main concern continues to be how my toes hold up.
