[B]05.19.2010-Wednesday[/B]

AM: 30 Burpees 12# Vest
[B]Strength: Deadlift[/B] (work toward a 1RM by end of month)
Warmup: 10x75#, 3x100#
150/185/200/210
way off my PR but understandable, working a lot of hours hardly any sleep lately.

PM:
[B]WOD at home[/B]
10 rounds:
30 double unders
10 inverted rows
[B]19:03[/B]
I did rows instead of pullups b/c of shoulder issue. This was the shedkicker wod. the other wod was 5 rounds of 500m row/25 12" lateral hurdle hops.


Stretch

Pat Quigley 05-19-2010 04:11 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Warm up: 10 treadmill. dynamic stretches.

Skill: Dumbbell Push press: 3 X 5: 45-50-55-60-65 (f). One arm unstable on full extension on second rep. Dropped the load rather than wrestle with it.


Workout: Annie: 50-40-30-20-10 of Double Unders and Sit ups.

Subbed: stand on platform high enough for crease in hip is lower than knee. Sit ups on GHD to parallel.

Completed in 17:55.

Dynamic stretches to finish.

Plan more use of dumbbells due to shoulder inflexibility. Noticed that this eliminated hyperextension of back which happens some times w. barbell and presses.

[B]Bill H., [/B]The trainer that taught me the split jerk did this: as I was standing, arms by my side, the trainer came up behind me and pushed me forward un-expectantly. The leg that I put forward to balance myself (in my case my left leg) became the leg I would put forward for the split jerk. I suppose it's kind of like discovering which eye is your dominant eye when you first start shooting.

Hi Terry,

I haven't seen that SDHP/Push-up couplet workout before......great push-pull programming!

Did it take you a long time to get stability in the shoulders with OHS? When I'm locked overhead (in the squat) even with just 28#, it seems that someone could just push forward or backward on the bar and I'd lose the positioning / have to dump. Thanks.

Great job, Bill. Going overhead kills the arms for burpees and the burpees make going overhead difficult...And yeah, that last little WOD must have been pretty nasty!

Hi Steve, Yeah getting a decent weight on OHS seems like its going to be a long process for me, couldn't even do the bar when I started 1.5 yrs ago, my goal is to be able to do 1RM at body weight. Stability is ok, just seems it takes many reps before I get warmed up in the shoulders...then I am too tired to hold all that weight...:shrug:

1x165#/1x175#/1x185#/1x195#/1x205#

Probably could have gone higher but felt a little wonky without a spotter. Also did 100SU between each set to stay warm.

[B]WOD[/B]: 800m walk for time with 45# plate overhead. Every time you come out of full lock up, set the plate down and do 10 pushups (I think I "borrowed" this from [B]Terry's [/B]affiliate page).
I managed 200m before starting my first pushups. Then I got another 100m in before deciding to scale to a 35# plate every 50m, so it was 50m with a 45# then 50m with a 35# till I finished the 800. Did a lot of pushups too. Took me 24:23

[B]Nancy[/B], I don't get to swim as often as I would like. But I do enjoy the look on the lifeguards faces when I get out to do burpees or pushups or single unders then get back in for another 25m sprint.
My massage guy is having a $50 for 60 minutes special this month and I'm going as often as I can afford. It's usually $75 (or higher).

I bet that makes for good entertainment! Last week, at one of our masters swim workouts, we had to do some sprints, and before each sprint we had to get out and do either squats or push ups. 'twas fun! I like when it's mixed up like that.

Nice way to take advantage of the massage special. :)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Terry, thanks much for sharing your OHS experience. It certainly validates what I'm experiencing, but I now know just to be patient and keep after the skill work on OHS.

Bill, I hear you with regard to the instructor. Seems there can be a little mischievous pleasure in programming of some WODs here and there. Reminds me almost of a PT instructor or two I had at my LE academy years ago. They took perverse pleasure in having us do an inordinate number of push ups or sit-ups at times.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Folks,

Been out of town for most of the week in NYC. Had a chance to hook up with Eric at Crossfit Metropolis on Wednesday where we did split jerks. His group was pretty new to oly lifts so he started the instruction from scratch which is good. Always smart to get back to basics sometimes. I always learn something new at a different affiliate when I'm traveling. We did a similiar exercise that Bill mentioned. Only this one we just leaned forward to fall down (coach spotted) and the foot the snapped forward to catch you is the dominant one. I had been using the wrong foot and my jerk movement improved by switching.

As a result of the travel, working out is spotty.

Monday,

WU, one mile run, paced at 9:00min

Bench Press 5-5-5-5-5
135 lbs, 135 lbs, 155 lbs, 175 lbs, and 155 lbs

Kettlebell Swing 5x5
55 lbs, 65 lbs, 75 lbs, 75 lbs, and 75 lbs

Wednesday (CF Metropolis)

Split Jerk 3-3-3-3-3
95 lbs, 95 lbs, 105 lbs, 135 lbs(1), and 135 lbs


I built a Pull up bar and made some rings for the garage so may as well use them.

Saturday
5 Rounds for time,
Run 400m, 15 ring dips, 15 pull ups

Jeff,

Sounds like the NYC trip was great. I glad for the wealth of knowledge out there in the greater CF community - - it's good to meet up with others and work on those things they specialize in.....

Props on constructing your own rings and pull-up bar. How did you build the pull-up bar; I'm thinking of putting one up on my garage, but have a high ceiling (11.5 feet) and don't know if I want to pony up $100 - $200 for one.

took some days off thru the weekend. I had a minor strain in my wrist and just took some time.

Warm up: 10 minute walking on treadmill, legs swings, goosestepping, side stepping into squats, push ups, dips.

Bench press: 3 X 5: 135,165,185,205, 235.

Then the main site work out: back squat: 5 X 5:205,225,235,245,275. Used an 18" box for depth and safety bars in the power cage to keep from too foward movement. Could have gone heavier. There's always next time!
