Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
My Birthday WOD as prescribed by my friend Rob Klugman: *I rested 5 min. *between WODs:

Diane (21-15-9: dead lifts @ 225 and HSPU):

12:07 (used 185 lbs and HSPUS were 3/4 not full) ( Felt very strong on dead lifts, but can't tell if it's my form getting better or just because I used lighter weight).

Fran (21-15-9 thrusters @ 95 and pull ups):

9:07 as rxed

Nancy (5 rounds: 400 meter run; OHS 15 x 95 lbs):

24:12 as rxed (kind of coasted on this one to be honest but liked it)

[QUOTE=William Hoogsteden;1012634]AGREED! Butt position is CRITICAL with the Dead Lift! And getting your lats involved helps. Surprisingly, if your form is correct, lifting 300+ lbs on a Dead lift puts little strain on your back.

Were those back extensions holding the kb?


Yes on both William. I did 195# on the deadlift with my butt lower and my lats engaged and it came right up.

Yes on the back ext with the KB. Talk about burn baby, burn! My cheeks to my knees. Loved it. My hammies needed that.

Fran played a serious head game with me a couple of weeks ago. Started with 65# and had to lower the weight to 55# and seriously wanted to leave the box forever that day.
I finished it in 12:52 which was horrible mentally.

Did Fran in my garage with a friend yesterday. I decided to stick to 55# and use that weight until I can get through all sets of thrusters unbroken. Yesterday even with broken sets, I still finished in 9:50 a full 3 minute improvement.

Sometimes you must take a step backwards to get a running start.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Seven rounds for time of:
205 pound Clean, 3 reps
4 Ring handstand push-ups

Modified to 160 lbs. and 10 HSPUS. On my 4th round, I was advised my clean form was horrible so I dropped down to 135 lbs. No reason to time myself. Clearly need help with cleans even though I threw up the 160 lbs fairly easily. Trying to raise chest and hips simultaneously, but so far, it's not happening.

[QUOTE]Trying to raise chest and hips simultaneously[/QUOTE]
pull your KNEES back (but not straight) and build a hang. explode legs when you get the bar to your lower thigh - it only has to go to nipple height for a clean.
