11/14
A. EMOTM, 7:00, 2-3 TnG Clean & Jerks (perfect form)
2 @ 135# squat clean and jerk.
Got pretty deep in the hole on a couple of them, meaning it took a lot of effort to get out.

+
AMRAP 15:00
2 wall walks
5 Box Jumps (step down) - 30"/24"
10 DB Snatches (5R/5L) - 55/35
6 rounds + 2 wall walks + 5 Box Jumps + 1 DB Snatch.

Another hard WOD. Everything required quite a bit of effort, so no active rest. DB snatches @ 55# were tough. Toward the end I found myself dropping them and chasing them across the floor for the next rep.

[I]I did the 1st round of Power Cleans straight through. It seemed to be a mistake. The Air Squats were brutal and surprisingly seemed to take their toll on me. This is the 1st WOD I've done Rx in a while. It felt good![/I]

To understand today's WOD, you need to understand the contour lines on the topo map. Where they are closely packed together is a cliff...

A nice hike up a moderate trail. No bushwhacking, scrambling, or climbing today, just hiking UPHILL in the lovely lovely sun. For those of you who've been to Seneca, imagine if the Stairmaster went up 1,500 feet in 1.5 miles instead of 300 feet in six hundred yards. For CrossFitters, imagine 2,000 box ups on constantly varied boxes ranging from 3 inches to 18 inches, with many of them not horizontal. Going up was hard on the heart and lungs and hip flexors, coming down was brutal on the quads...

Workout: Mountain Walk
Date: Nov 17, 2013
Distance: 3.32 mi
Duration: 1:51:57

Happy to be heading home tomorrow.

JT - That's why I love living on the Front Range in Colorado. That describes many of my hikes. :)

Been really busy lately. My wife had back surgery five weeks ago and I am taking care of her, the house, the dogs and still working. My boss is wonderful and has let me work from home but some days have me frazzled. Good news is I am still working out; just not very good about logging in to post.

11/17 Bike intervals
5 min warmup
20 minutes of random intervals (1 gear up and 1 gear down with every change of song listening to the new Buddy Guy CD)
5 min cooldown
Cash out: Cadillac margarita while fixing dinner

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Forgot to mention that I went to see an back ortho specialist for my lower back pain and chronic mild to moderate sciatica. X-rays indicate I have degenerative disk disease (like everyone else our age) so he says I need to stop doing things that put an axial load on my spine like running, squats, deadlifts and overhead press. Says I need to not put any more "wear and tear" on the disks. The doctor is a skier and mountain biker; strength work is not part of his exercise program.

I'm looking for a second opinion. :rofl:

Anyone on the list had a similar diagnosis? I am wondering what your medical provider had to say about continuing these exercises. I have already seen an improvement in symptoms just from adding Turkish Get-Ups and more core work back into my warmup and cash out sessions. I also have been doing squats and deadlifts with no added discomfort. I just listen to the back and some days the back says, "not today."

Thoughts?
