11/28 WOD

AMRAP 20 Min (3 min work/ 1 min rest; continue where you left off after the 1 min rest)
3 Handstand Pushups
6 Power Cleans (135#/95#)
9 Pull Ups

7 rounds as Rx'd
With 3 on, 1 off, this really was 5 rounds of 3 minutes of work, then 1 minute rest. Was able to blast through the HSPU's well. Working on getting head all the way down to one pad. 135# power cleans continue to be hard. With that much weight I am not nearly explosive enough, so I end up muscling the bar up and catching with my back arched too many times. The occasional reps where I do stick it properly are really satisfying, so I know good reps are in there somewhere. Pull ups were tough after all the exertion of the power cleans. I did one round straight through, otherwise 4's and 5's or 4's and 4's and 1's until the end when it was 3's. Finished 7th round with 5 seconds left.

Not been diligent lately, slightly tweaked ankle (long time) so It has stopped me from squats, jump rope and a few other things. Have some bands ordered the stretching, foam rolling and such not working.

Tried wod with squat ankle felt it was collapsing so I did machine leg press.
Kept going up from 240# or so one rep one plate at a time, go up to the stack 420 or 440#

Today 5000 meter row.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
11/29 WOD

Overhead Squats: 10 – 3 – 10 – 3 – 10 – 3
For this workout you are trying to find your 10 rep max and then your 3 rep max.

This was the most fun I've had in class in months! Great group, 12 guys, Christina the only girl and the coach. Great job keeping us on task! Worked with James and Augie.

What a funny thing expectations are. I think this was the first time I've 10-repped 115. Also, about a month ago I hit one OHS at 135 for a PR and was stoked. This morning I three-repped 135, but looked around and saw the amazing numbers every else was putting up, and now I feel like I need to get body weight up at the risk of my very manliness! Oh well, these are the kinds of situations I thrive in, so I'm hopeful for some big successes in the not too distant future.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Been a bit lax with my postings...apologies all around.


For Time:
20 Squat Cleans 155/105 (I did 95#)
200 Double Unders (400 Single Unders)
10 Power Cleans (95#)
200 Double Unders (400 SU)


Felt as if my power clean is cleaning up. We have an olympic lifting coach who visits occasionally and I have started to practice on my own. We'll see...
