Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

Hello Ron and Rolf,

Welcome. The more, the merrier.


Rippetoe's book is excellent. I just read it last month. It was more technical than I expected.

Feeling great today. Did bench press and power cleans today at AM squadron PT.

Bench Press
WU Sets: 2 x 45, 5 x 95, 3 x 110, 2 x 145
Work Sets: 3 x 5 x 160

Power Clean
WU Sets: 2 x 45, 5 x 85, 3 x 105, 2 x 130
Work Sets: 3 x 5 x 145

Thinking about taking a crack at today's WOD. Scale the wt a bit and maybe fewer rounds? We'll see.


Runway 12 here at Offutt AFB has some pretty interesting crosswinds, too. You can be on short final, put in your crosswind corrections and then just as you flare and touchdown, buildings and trees block the wind forcing you to quickly remove said corrections. Just when you think you're safe, you get past the buildings and the cross wind returns. The AF used to not allow landing beyond a certain crosswind unless you were certified. To top it all off, you have to deal with a 0.7% downhill gradient. Great fun.
