Wed- warm up shoulders and hamms.

Build to a heavy 5 rep thruster from the ground. Everything was heavy- 45-200#, 15# short of my pr.


7 min amrap
3 thrusters 100#
3 c2b
6 thrusters
6 c2b
9
9 and so on.. did 15's and 15 thrusters in the 6th round. The 135 t2b the day prior did not help any.
90% effort. Someone took my pull up bar.. hehe. Little more warm up; c2b was not good till the 12's and a little more c2b endurance would do me some good. Heavy, out of shape, loaded with sugar.. 2 rep pr. Next time will finish the 6 rounds.

Row 4,600 meters.

Did some sumo deadlifts was super heavy. Looking forward to getting off the sugar and fueling my body better.

Hi Vic :D

So whats your plan for the open this year?

Are you giving it your all or is it just for fun?

I mean you are still producing some great numbers and times thsat i am sure that are better than many 45 yr olds.

Plus we also have to remember that people come and go and priorities change for the open.

Cheers Alex

Alex,
How are those HSPU's coming along?

Plan for the open is to train hard leading up to it but treat it as fun. If I do well then I'll train hard for the MQ.. and so on.

My intensity is low when working out and that is my problem in general. Takes a lot to motivate me after 6 year of Crossfit and another 30 years of other comps in other sports.

My main goal is to kill the 50+ in 2019.

Tuesday PM- warm up with row, burpees, broad jumps..

20 min AMRAP
Row 250 meters
25 wall balls 20#
Row 250 meters
15 hspu
Did 5.5 rounds. Ended up being a hard workout with hspu/row and wb.

Just got on the rower and started out slow for the first pull or 2 then steady to my desired pace of 1:50 or less.

Talked to a new member for a bit.. ex Marine!

Work is crazy so many orders. Had to hire a new person. Gym is growing. Other gyms are changing around us so we will see whats happens in 2018.

Working on the house. GF moving in. She turns the house into a home. Got a king sized bed for us and the little doggie who takes up so much room.

Trying to slow down time but its going fast. Meditation is the key. 10 min of that seems like 3 hours.

Even on rowing. Tonight will row a bunch with my group.

13.3 Open workout. This is one of my goats. A bunch of ring mu at the end of the workout. Did this workout in 2012 got 244 or 4 mu. That was month 3 of doing crossfit. The next year I have the judge from hell who took me off my game and no repped me about 20 or more times on the wall balls. Was wrecked and I mean wrecked hitting the mu. Only got 2 of them. I did Karen one time with a buddy and after we looked at each other and grabbed our ropes and did the 90 dubs and had time to do some mu.. I think that I got 8 or 10.

I had the plan to break when I wanted on the wb. Took about 6:40ish.
25 to start and 15's for a while then some sets of 11 then finally 9.
Grabbed the rope and did 35/30/25 short breaks. Walked over to the towels and got one to recover for the mu. Had about 4 min or so. 4/4/4/3/3 total 18 of them. Really happy about this progress. 258 RX more than a 10 reps pr!!!!

Accessory work,row 2800 meters. Clean up the gym. Cool down and enjoy the experience.
