[B]Deb[/B], Yeah, I hate rips too. I started taping for pullup heavy WODs a while ago, but sometime forget or think, "Ahhh, I don't need no stinking tape." And that's usually when I remember that there's no fool like an old fool. Here's to a speedy recovery.

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;797658]Thanks [B]Claw[/B] for that link; I don't usually tape. [B]Pat,[/B] I hear you, I don't usually get that many tears! Lesson learned. I file all the time too (Ive always had calluses on my hands anyway). :)[/QUOTE]
I never tape, occasionally I get a tear but not very often, at least not like I use to. This is a [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTqNSgCmM2s"]really good video[/URL] (WFS) by Rippetoe showing how to grip a bar to avoid tears, I use the same method doing pullups, sometimes during a WOD for time I will jump on the pull up bar too fast and forget, it only takes a second and you remember quickly. Another thing that helps is keeping the thumb on top of the bar with your fingers, not only does this improve grip strength it helps reduce the chance of tearing, many people will run their thumb underneath (like holding a baseball bat).

[B]Deb,
[/B]Great job on "Angie" despite the tears. I use a "Ped Egg" on my callouses - - it works wonders and smooths them down enough I seldom have problems. I also don't tape - - it makes matters worse for me (so I probably don't do it correctly). Only recent time I've torn my hand(s) open is when I did "Cindy" a few weeks ago.

[B]Terry,
[/B]Props on the Power Snatch PR! Thanks (from me too) for posting the link on Rip's video. Excellent!

[I][B]100615 TUESDAY

A.M. Workout at CrossFit Modesto [/B](Getting car serviced in Motown, so figured I do something constructive rather than sit on my caboose in the waiting room......

[/I][I][B]Skill Work: [/B][/I][B]Power Snatch and Snatch Balance
[/B]5 Sets of:
1 Power Snatch
3 Snatch Balances
[U]Work up to highest weight manageable[/U]
Since I'm not yet proficient on the snatch, I did the following:
4 sets using empty 33# bar
1 set using empty 45# bar

[I][B]WOD: 7 Rounds for Time of:
[/B][/I][B]7 Power Snatches 95#/55# ----> 45#
7 Box Jumps [/B](Use the tallest box possible)[B]----> 19.5"
Time: 7:15
[/B][I]
[B]P. M. Workout at CrossFit Sonora
[/B][/I]
[I][B]WOD: 4 Rounds for Time of:
[/B][/I]400m Run
12 KTEs
9 Front Squats 155#/110#[B]----> 115#[/B]
[B]Time: 17:30
[/B][I] All sets of K2Es unbroken! Woot woot! Used 115# for the FS, because all the racks were in use and I cleaned the weight from the ground--great practice for me, since I've had such problems with the cleans. Don't know if I could have gone much heavier, since my 1RM FS is currently 175#.[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
6-16-10
5 rounds for time:

-50 m sled drag (2- 45lb plates)w/sled=110lbs, w/100lb sandbag yoked around the neck
-50 m burpee broad jumps
-50 m run backwards

this was tougher than I expected, did the WOD on the grass at the park, you could feel the difference in the softer turf during the sled drag, short dead hard turf is best, tried to do everything unbroken, but burpee broad jumps ended up breaking about 3 times, 15-20 jumps each round, very first burpee my hand landed on a bee, nice sting between the fingers

[B]time was 19:20[/B]

Pat Quigley 06-16-2010 05:35 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
after a warm up, I did the workout scheduled for yesterday.

Tuesday 100615

For time:
Row 2K
50 Wall-ball shots, 20 pound ball
Row 1K
35 Wall-ball shots, 20 pound ball
Row 500 meters
20 Wall-ball shots, 20 pound ball

I subbed Db swings w. 30# for WB shots. The rowers are too close to mirror covered walls and I didn't think that they would stand up to banging w. 20# ball. Finished in 22:10. This was much easier than the other day w. rowing and bench.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Thanks for the link [B]Terry[/B]. Perfect time to hop on the bar and learn the right grip (cant grip it wrong with the tears, now can I?)
That sled WOD looks horrendous, yet I wanna try it!!!


[B]06.16.2010-Wednesday[/B]
AM: 30 Burpees 15# vest

PM:
Warmup - Row 500, walking lunge, squats, OHS w/PVC, couple pullups,

Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
5 hang power snatch - 95# (55#)
10 overhead squats - 95# (55#)
20 ring push-ups
[B]6.5 Rounds[/B] FUN WOD!!
55# is light. I LOVE THE SNATCH!! Ring pushups were surprisingly the hardest part, Ive done better on these. Pbly because of all the pushups Monday?? Maybe next time I get more rounds. I made a big puddle of sweat on the floor and my chest ball, it was great!:p

Run 400M - (for some reason I didn't get time to do more tonite)
Foam Roll, stretch....

[/B]Gotta agree with Deb - -that WOD must have been nasty!

[B]Deb,

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
6/18 WOD

3 x Max Dead Hang Pull Ups (Supine Grip – palms facing towards you)
Followed by:
25 – 20 – 15 – 10 – 5 Reps of:
Box Jumps (24″/20″)
KB Swings (1.5/1)
Push Ups

4, 4, 2 on pull-ups. This was very disappointing. Thought I had more pulling power in my arms than this. Maybe it's the extra weight from the pizza while watching Lakers last night. (I'm not doing Paleo challenge, but even by my dining standards, this was a serious cheat.)

12:17 as Rx'd. This was great! I haven't felt like I've been putting out full effort since my rest break, and haven't really been happy with my output, but this time I felt like I was really pushing it. Thanks to Andy Wood for pushing me; I'm not sure if he was aware of it, but I was trying like hell to stay on pace with him. Don't know what he thought; as far as I was concerned, it was a race! Great job Andy, and thanks.

Lots of people at 6 am today, very cool. Happy Birthday to new person (Nicole?)!

Are you going to be doing a WOD while you're down here? Let me know and I'll try to meet you. There is a 9 am beach WOD tomorrow Saturda with my box, Crossfit Pacific Coast. Let me know if you want to drop in. Or you might be working with Nick at Goodland; if so, let me know that, too.

Terry,

Solid work on the rows....really consistent despite the running in between!

Props on the 6+ minute PR - that's awesome!

Deb, PR or not, great FF.:notworth:

At group today, we did an extended Tabata. 6 exercises, record total reps per exercise.
Push ups: 99
Squats: 231
Sit ups: 67
Pull ups: 40
DB Swings w. 35#:68
Row: 733meters

Fourth row work this week! Any advice on where to place the toe strap? How many holes above set point for size 12 shoe? I've experimented w. 2,3,4 empty rows and cannot decide which is most efficient.

Pat,

Great Tabata work! 231 squats? WHOA!

My understanding is to use the set of holes on each foot plate which will place the strap over the laces of your shoes......I wear size 10s and generally use the 5th row (second from the bottom) of holes.
