Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
5/29 WOD
A. Front Squat, 30X1, 5,3,2,1,1, rest 3:00
135-155-175-185-out of time

4 rounds
20 Wall Balls, 20/14#
rest :10
Tough set unbroken pull-ups (not max, kipping ok)
rest 3:00

34 pull ups.
First WOD after Murph and my inner elbows were still very sore and I could not stretch my arms to full length. Not surprisingly, my pull ups were horrible. Sets were 6, 9, 9, 10. OTOH, first 3 sets of 20 wall balls went straight through with good form.

Bummed I ran out of time on the front squats because they were feeling strong. Think I had 200 in me for the last one rep. I'll have to do this rep scheme over again soon.

Cliff, Nice job! I've always wanted to try Atlas Stones. One of these days...

[QUOTE]First WOD after Murph ... Not surprisingly, my pull ups were horrible. [/QUOTE] I feel your pain Claw!!

[B]28 May:
WU: (at the Base Globo)[/B]
.3333333333mi run
100+ SUs
10 Leg swings
10 Air Squats
10 Push Ups
10 Sit Ups
Tried to do a Pull Up but my hand cuts hurt like hell!! :yikes:
Basically bagged the WOD for the day.

[B]29 May:
400m run
10 Leg swings (Both legs, each direction)
10 air Squats
10 push ups
10 Pull Ups (with a glove on my cut hand!)
10 AbMat Sit Ups
10 45# Presses
10 45# OHS

Split Jerk
75 (5), 95 (4), 115 (3), 135 (2), 155 (1), 175 (1), 195 (f), 195 (f)

For Time
21 Burpees* (Yay! Burpees!!)
75 Double-Unders
15 Burpees* (Yay! Burpees!!)
50 Double-Unders
9 Burpees* (Yay! Burpees!!)
25 Double-Unders

*jump up to a 45lb bumper plate for burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)

Scaled 3:1 SUs (225, 150, 75)


[I]I was a little disappointed in the Split Jerks. 75# was tough and by the time I got to 175#, I felt good. I guess I should have tried 185# or 190#.

The met con was different, jumping on the 45# plate slowed down the burpees. (Yay! Burpees!!) At least I had the fastest time on the board. Of Course, it was the only time on the board! :D[/I]

Heavy jerk practice, taking it from the rack.

Friday May 30, 2014

Deads to 455, then 10x315 standard grip, then 10x225 snatch grip.

Finished up with 20 jerks at 75# really trying to "punch" up to get low.

My jerk has suffered as I've focused on the snatch.

PM Session

walked three laps around the farm, which was a good thing, until I used it as an excuse to have a little ice cream, which turned into a little more ice cream, which was a bad thing.

Tried to speed up the row each round, which I accomplished, but I paid for it on wall balls, so I ended up with increased split times. Last two rounds of wall balls broken up.
