Claw- those Stone lifts sound fun (watched those being moved around on TV once and they looked burly (to say the least)

Andrew-Ditto on Williams comments

[QUOTE]Andrew - Welcome!! Sounds like you are off to a great start!! If you can do Angie, you can do anything!! Claw speaks the truth!! (What a firebreather on that WOD!! Pistols!! Sheesh!! WTG!!)[/QUOTE]

((every time I try to do pistols I look like my 3yr old grandson trying to put on his underwear over his shoes!:confused::confused: ))

Alan, for sure take it easy on rebuilding those rotatorsl (I am struggling as well in not overdoing it) great that you have a PT to work with-a good one that understands the bio-mechanics and basics of Oly lifting will sure to be a blessing!


4/2-was CF day-off (quads still really sore to the touch at hip insertion) Driving 400miles help didn't loosen things up either!-
4/3- Up early doing shoulder MOB and DU-practice--then trained the Mrs. in the Garage Gym--off to the Box
Spent the first 20min discussing with my trainer strategies for strengthening my shoulders without re-injury as it appears I the (external rotators) and as well most of the tendons are still pretty weak and stressed (evidenced by the time it takes them to recover after doing any overhead lifts?
(I decided to change to coming in Every other Day instead of my usual 2-on/1-off cycle? and spending the off day doing X training on bike and running along with enhanced duration MOB workouts ((((comments/experience from you all as to recovery times between workouts))) for us 55+ masters would be helpful:confused::confused:

4/4 WOD

Five rounds for time of:
45 pound barbell Overhead walking lunges, 50 feet
21 Burpees

Time: 14.47 (scaled Barbell to 35#) had to take a few stutter steps to maintain balance/form (hip stability was weak) as well my wrists were pretty stressed---bla, bla, bla!

Tim,
re the pistols.. that is i suspect how i look doing box pistols... but add in an intent look of concentration.. one day i will succeed!!! it is an achievable goal.

re: change of schedule
I had been on a Mon WED FRI rotation.. with some aerobicx training on the other days and sunday a rest day.. doing farm work LOL

then late last years I changed to MON TUE REST THUR FRI with areobic stuff ect on other days rest sunday. This resulted in building up a heap of soreness stiffness and being constantly tired..
Now i alternate between the two and schedule a long run/bike ride/ row on the weekend and a bit of light aerobic work/circuits etc on the other off days.

this seems to be working well. Mind you i am a bit older than you. as i gather more life experience ( :rolleyes: ) i find that i have less wriggle room for error than i had before even if i am stronger etc. A higher level of body awareness is necessary for me to keep improving.

cheers

JB - Nice WOD!! Yay! Burpees!!

Jack - Way to go on that Clean Complex!!

Tim - Good Luck with the rehab. Nice time on the walking lunge/Burpee Couplet! Yay! Burpees!! (They should be nothing after 12.1 !!)

:yikes:4/4/12 Bike Intervals

Warmup: Abmat sit-ups, back extensions, 200 single unders

Workout: Intervals on the Life Cycle
1 minute on (level 16), 2 minutes off (level 13)
30:00

Cashout: Shoulder mobility

Had my first physical therapy session today. I was impressed with the thoroughness she showed in checking things again and explaining to me what the issue was and what she was going to do to work on it. The various stretches felt like they loosened things up. She even found some trigger points I was unaware of. Then the "fun" began. Dry needle trigger point therapy turned out to be more sporty than I expected. If you've ever misadjusted a TENS unit and gotten the very strong muscle contraction, you have a good idea as to how a bad TP reacts to the needle. :yikes: The good news is that happens, you know the needle is in the right spot.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Helen,

Thanks for the feedback on scheduling. I am going to do a 2week switch and then a little different the next and see what happens? (I have the feeling) that when/if the darn weather ever gets a little drier and I get out running/riding more I will stay much looser and that will help (truth be known I am probably just whining about being still gimpy) after tearing my self up last year!

William, Nice work! (I like the 1 short air squat "Cindy" warmup!) That many PP's after handstands is BRUTAL!--

Alden, sounds like you got a good PT and are on the right track!
John B--You continue to inspire me--your avatar makes me sweat!!

Can't wait to get to the Box in the morning--REST DAY ARE HARD ON ME!!:pepper:

[QUOTE=Tim Randall;1049913]...That many PP's after handstands is BRUTAL!...[/QUOTE] That's why I did them in sets of 5! The young guns started at set of 15 & were down to sets of 5 (or less) by the end. I wanted to be consistent!

Jack, great stuff on the snatches. I wish I could still move with enough flexibility to do those.

Some back spasms after yesterday's WOD. Spent allot of time this AM just doing mobility. All my buddies at Tribal had started their WOD's. Saturday at Tribal is usually a catch up day so member can do one of the missed WOD's from the prior week.

Did my own WOD:

200m tire flip w. 400 lb tire. Should have timed this so it could be a crossfit WOD.

More mobility for lower back after this WOD.

Enjoy the holiday. Happy Passover, Easter or whatever makes you happy.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
4/7 WOD (drop in at Crossfit Newport Beach)

One mile run for time,
followed immediately by 50 Overhead Squats (95/65)

10:46 @ 75#, mile done in 6:48.
This was a good pace for me on the mile, although there is more speed available. Felt like going light on the OHS so I went with 75#. I was disappointed in my ROM. The last two squat WOD's included poor ROM so I will have to refocus on getting it right, not necessarily getting it heavy or fast.

no need to apolgize!

Front Squat work

AMRAP 7 minutes of

5 Push Press (115 lbs)
35 Double Unders

2 Rounds + 10

Jim Cordes 04-09-2012 03:03 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
4/9 WOD

5-5-5-5-5 Back Squats
155-165-185-205-205

Followed by 3 Rounds (not for time, just work explosive jumping)
8 Squat Box Jumps.

Regular readers will note I expressed dissatisfaction with the depth of my squats the last two squatting WODs. I placed a wall ball beneath me and intended to tap it on all reps. When I got to 205 I got real close but missed it. It is HARD to get below parallel with any kind of serious weight on my back for multiple reps! Still pleased, however, that I got to parallel for sure, if not below.

Not sure the squat box jumps worked out. I know the point was squat, explode up with open hips, and then land, but I could never get to fully open because I was focused on getting my feet high enough to clear the box. In any event, I did sets to 20", 24", then 30" so there was a least a little exploding.

Starting to feel like it's time for a break. Spent two late nights in Vegas then one very early morning heading south for Easter. I was really dragging this morning.

Nothing like the suck of a hero WOD. Klepto was killed in Afghanistan right before one of the guys in the class was deployed there.

William, thanks! (good thing No nieghbors came over for morning coffee or wasn't looking in when I had the wife do hers using the "kitchen island countertop" with a chase cushion taped to it:confused:

I admire the WU routine you are doing (as we are growing our Box and getting more organized we are incorporating more "organized" WU/cool down as well.

I remember doing that Klepto WOD last year (was announced just after my nephew was deployed for the second time (gave me the motivation to kick in high gear) but I can still hear echoes of my lungs sucking the sweat up from the pool on the floor!:rofl::rofl:

My darn wrist still gives me fits when at the top of any overhead lift so I am still forced to do lighter weights than I am capable of (humility and patience I am still working on)

I can relate to the reference to burpees being less of a surprise after OPEN WOD's--I was able to do much better on T2B on this WOD

Claw- must share the same genetics? I as well struggle getting out of the hole on heavy squats? ( I have been watching a lot of videos of late working on form):confused:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
I see you guys and gals are still hitting 'em hard. I'm back within internet range. Went to New Orleans to visit family for a few days. Worked out every day (speed walks, jump rope, air squats) but I have to confess that my cash outs included things like cafe au lait, beignets, boiled crawfish and oysters in large quantities. My annual visits are the only time I don't think about the nutritive value of what I'm eating; I just enjoy the food of my youth. :)

Claw and Tim - I was having the same issue with squat depth when the weights got heavy so I changed over to working box squats for a while. More stable than trying to hit the wall ball and I can really concentrate on the form. I haven't tried regular squats yet at a heavy weight but am expecting to see an improvement.

I'm happy to report that the trigger points are gone after one needling session. I have a spot or two that is still sore because the TP was really bad but otherwise, it is pretty amazing. The therapist is also working on shoulder and neck mobility. After two sessions, I have between 5-10 degrees improved ROM in my neck and can now reach behind my back and overhead without discomfort. Based on the last week and two PT sessions, I am definitely a fan of manual physical therapy!

Seems like we all have problems getting out of the hole!!
Im probably the worst squatter ever: depth, doing a good morning getting up, et al.
A big problem with my squats is not even my legs, its my back! This is light and see how much trouble I have keeping my back up?? And I divebomb into my squats. :mad: I keep hoping it'll get better.

Tonite, I went slow & controlled down with 58kg, and came to a dead stop. Sitting soft in the hole a big no-no; and somehow managed to bounce and stand it up. That's a first!!

Anyway, nice squatting!! I'm always envious when I read about your squats and just, how much weight you guys do.

Oh yeah, I never did that clean complex. From the pocket.... I didnt really know what that was, I was standing still w bar at hip crease and realizing - Im almost standing straight up - nothing to zing with!!! Tonite I saw a guy doing snatch from high hang (I asked, is that 'from pockets'? and he said yeah). It was actually from upper third of the thigh.... duh.

Chaplin Tim - I'll bet that would've been quite a sight!! :rofl: My wife & our Globo instructor thought the name was obscene!

Our instructors have been working hard to have our WUs reflect the WODs in a "Same but different" manner. They've also been bringing in a lot of the Mobility WOD stuff.

[QUOTE]My darn wrist still gives me fits when at the top of any overhead lift so I am still forced to do lighter weights than I am capable of (humility and patience I am still working on)[/QUOTE] I'm with you there!! I always have to check my ego at the door!!

JB - Dominican Nuns! The Green Berets of the Catholic Church!! I'd rather do ANY WOD than cross those ladies (though that Prison thing is pretty comperable!)!! Front Squats are tough for me! I keep dropping my arms!! Nice EMOM WOD!! (Yay! Burpees!!)

Cliff - Nice Kelly!! Consecutive Box Jumps are tough for me! Being able to do 5 rounds of 30 mostly consecutive is awesome!!

Tim F - I'm in awe by your deadlifts!! Have you seen that biking video a few days back on the main site? It looks interesting.

Alden - Glad to hear the PT is helping!! Sweet 5K time!! Some of my friends went to a box in "Nawlins" & had a great time there.

What Bill said about the nuns. Such great memories. Sister Bertha beating my hands with a ruler for my varied infractions and locking me in the mop closet. To this day, I cannot stand the smell of PineSol! Thankfully, I started public school in the 3d grade so only so much damage was done. ;)

Another PT session this afternoon. My infraspinatus is still a bit unhappy so it got needled again. Compared to its previous state, I didn't even know there was a TrP there. But when she put the needle in, there was no doubt. :yikes: Thanks for all the encouragement, I have a good feeling about how this will all turn out.
