Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

That hearing loss in the frequency of a woman's voice sounds so familiar! My husband (a former tank commander in the Marine Corps) tells me that all of those exploding tank shells are the reason that he misses half of what I say. Who knew it was so prevalent?

Thanks for recovery broccoli - I hope it mixes well with Pinot Noir and ibuprofen!

[I][B]090504 MONDAY @ Ultimate Fitness (really nice globo!), Fayetteville, GA.[/B][/I]

[I][B]Warm-up: Life Fitness Elliptical - [/B]10:00 / L3 / 8.5 MPH / 1.32 miles
[B]CFWU X 2 [/B](modified - no GHD - subbed bent knee sit-ups; no back ext.). Push-ups X 25 reps. Still did the PFSSs! X 10 (Burpees).
[B]DU Practice: [/B]Got cut short to about 2:00 - class in the room I was using. Got 5 (still not chained together).

[B]WOD: Front Squats: 3,3,3,3,3. Post Loads.

Goblet Squats: 35# X 10, 70# X 10
FS WU: Dowel X 15, 45# bar X 10, 95# X 5
Working: [/B](Did these barefoot)

115# X 3
125# X 3
135# X 3
[COLOR=Red]145# X 3 PR!
[/COLOR][/B][COLOR=Red][COLOR=Black]These felt really solid. Ist rep at 145 I felt my self coming forward slightly; corrected the last two.

[B]Kipping Pull-ups: 10 X 2[/B]. [B]FINALLY!
[/B]Don't know if this is really a PR, but it sure felt good to rip these out. Got funny looks from a couple of teens who I don't think had seen anyone, let alone an old man, knock out a kipping pull-up....:rofl:[/COLOR][/COLOR][/I]

[/B]Nice work on the FGB! That's an awesome score by any account!


[/B]Great TSE! You must be so proud of Breck! There must have been some real beasts there to put out numbers like Breck did! Fantastic!


[/B]I can identify with the "sharp as the leading edge of a bowling ball." I ran into a few of those myself at times during my past career. I'm also accused of having the same "selective" hearing loss......go figure. Never had to worry about sudden changes in altitude, constant turbine whine, munitions (larger caliber) fire, etc., frying my ears. Just sirens in close quarters, hollering commanders, lumber mill noises, etc.

[B]J. Scott,

[/B]Sounds like the reunion was a great success......especially from a culinary point of view. Thanks for the info on the Gymboss, by the way. Looks like a great product!


[/B]Great competitiveness and way to show up the younger set! Sounds like at least (a little) of the pain may have been worth it. I second the motion on the recovery broccoli and the Pinot-Noit! If you have enough of the latter, you might not need the ibuprofen!

Today - 05/05/09

Second 6AM group workout on the North Shore. The two 20-year-olds from yesterday didn't show up.

Short run to warm up.

Did some interesting combo lunging/stretching work

Kettlebell WU: DL's, high-pulls, swings

10 kettlebell swings - 1 push up
9 kettlebell swings - 2 push ups
8 kettlebell swings - 3 push ups
7 kettlebell swings - 4 push ups
6 kettlebell swings - 5 push ups
5 kettlebell swings - 6 push ups
4 kettlebell swings - 7 push ups
3 kettlebell swings - 8 push ups
2 kettlebell swings - 9 push ups
1 kettlebell swing - 10 push ups


Used a heavier kettlebell than I would normally swing and became winded very quickly. Broke down on the last 10 push-ups and had to do 4-3-2-1 - very humiliating - finished last. Oh well, at least I could get out of the car when I got home.

Front Sqts::
95lb x 3
115lb x 3
135lb x 3
155lb x 3
175lb x 3

I've just recieved Coach Riptoe's book on beginning barbells so I'm trying to deconstruct my form: vertical back, deep drop etc. Theses sqts were probably the best i've done. nothing to brag about, but better than my "hack" squats of the past few months.

Nice work on your Front Sqt PR, especially after a shakey 1st rep

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Well that head ache has degenerated into some sort of bug or whatever. Feel'n a good bit woozy and wobbly today, so I am being forced to take it least for today. :puke0000:

Sounds like the swine flu to me...better quarentine yourself with a nice single malt scotch, some back issues of Pilot World, and some pay-per-view. As a friend of mine said recently, "I don't think I have swine flu....more like swine fever; all I want to do is lay around and eat all day." Hey, I got my Iron Woodies...way cool.

Everybody is rocking the [B]front squats[/B] (especially Terry...I'm gunning for you, man...just as soon as I get better...:smiley_ev) Oh, and [B]Terry[/B]; digging your new avatar...later today I'm digging through my personal archives

So, last night I reviewed Starting Strength and today I did this:
1600m C2 warmup in 7:38
CFWU x 3 consisting of:
BW squats 10-10-15
1minute jump rope
push ups 5-10-15
situps 5-10-15
dips 5-7-10
pull ups 5-10-10
farmers carry #45 plate in each hand for 50 meters
my made up #20 wallball/burpee 5-5-10
back extension 10-15-20

Front Squats
#45 x 5 x 3
#65 x 5 x 2
#95 x 3
#115 x 3
#115 x 3
#135 x 3
#155 x 3
#[COLOR="Red"]175 x 1[/COLOR] (sloppy form/bailed on last 2) On a brighter note my previous 1RM was 155
