Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
First day at new gym - bodybuilder joint at the end of my block. Went in with a positive attitude.
In advance, I told the trainer (who is a former bodybuilder) that I wouldnt use machines. Consequently, he assessed my fitness with the following:
WU: 24 dumbbell swings - 10#, 24 back extensions , sit-ups (1 min), shoulder mobility
SDLHP 1 min 30# bar
Burpees (90 sec)
Push presses 1 min 30# bar
OH squats 1 min - 20# bar
Single-leg hops across floor 1 min ea leg, 45 sec ea leg, 30 sec ea leg
Mountain climbers 2 min
Back squats with a jump (hollow tube no weight) 1 min
Plank 2 min
Barely broke a sweat.
Going to steal Marks burpee count again tonight and do 82.
Going back tomorrow Hoping to see some deadlifts, cleans or box jumps thrown in somewhere. What are the chances that I can convert this guy to a CrossFit mentality?!?
