Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Hi everyone. I haven't logged on here much recently, but have been working out regularly. Mostly running, swimming and doing body weight circuits using my TRX, ropes, rings, pull up bar, etc. (with some deadlifts, shoulder presses, OHS, squats thrown in) in my garage. Focusing mostly on triathlon training these days. Just signed up for the Muskoka 70.3 again next year and also Ironman Florida. Hired a tri coach too! Haven't been doing much crossfit, but have been incorporating the concepts in my weight training.

Some good work going on here as always!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

11/5 WOD

Hang Power Clean ladder with a partner (95#/65#) (start at 3 HPC's)

22 (?) rounds @ 75#. Worked with Ethan for whom 75# was quite heavy. We originally planned on switching at 5 HPC's, but the weight became a struggle for Ethan, so we switched to 6-4, then 7-3, then as many as we could do. Ethan gutted his HPC's out with such a heavy weight. By the late rounds, I was doing 15 to 18 HPC's per minute, and this ended up being a real metcon burner plus forearm fryer. (All these cooking metaphors, I must be hungry.)

It was a relatively light weight, so I did lots of pulling with my arms. My hands and arms took all the abuse.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Ok getting behind on logging here! I have been a bit more constant on working out.

I forget who did the 5000 meter row in a bit of change over 20 minutes.
I remember how the 500 meter felt doing just sub 2:00 minutes.
So I was inspired to go 20 minutes and hit 4500 meters. Just staying shy of the 2:00 per 500 pace, some going to 2:20 anyway that was a good row.

Hit a PR on deadlift. I need a training partner or a brain 275# 3 or 4 reps, I just lost count. It was a PR because I did singles at that weight and recently (different day)I did a sort of double, had to reposition my hand. Today 265# was slipping at 5 reps with a double overhand. Usually don't miss a deadlift on grip.

Perry 75 2 pood KB swings unbroken, nice! Takes mental energy.

Got my RX jump rope in today. Heaviest black cable with my length.
seems long, due to using short ropes for so long. 40 singles consistent while fresh and then will talk double unders. Taking a 51 year old and trying to learn what you should have learned as a kid. Crossfit (I don't want to grow up)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Use 10 Minutes to find your Max 1Rep Thruster
then:

“Mini Kalsu”
Until you get 50 Thrusters-
Drop every minute and do 3 Burpees.
Use 60% of your max Thruster weight.


I maxed at 125. I can go higher but I am not really doing a thruster. I am front squatting and then pressing the weight. Have to work on that. Did my "Mini Kalsu" with 75lbs. Finished in 8 minutes.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Jim yeah, arm pulling would be most ALL people doing that many a minute!! That's a LOT of work. Even with arm pulling, my back & legs would STILL be putting a hurt on me.

Kalsu, tried it once - OMG w/65# I think I was getting 6-7 thrusters tops.
Tiring one.

Hoogs is on fire!!!


11_8_11 Tuesday

GPP

6 rounds
10 side lunge w/weight held in front
10 woodchoppers "
10 russian twists "

Power Clean + Power Jerk + OHS
35kg/2+2+1
40kg/2+2+1
45kg/2+2+1
50kg/2+1+1 (3)
These were all ok, had two crappy pcleans, the narrow grip OHS went about the same as last time, shoulder flexibility limits ROM. Nick said its fine, it will build some muscle and strength in my back.

Jerk from Rack
35kg/3
40kg/2
45kg/2
50kg/2 (2)
57kg/1 (5 - pressout, miss- didnt jump under, total miss, made it, miss)
50kg (4) all good
kinda disappointing, 57 is light

Good Morning
35kg/4 (4)

Snatch Grip Press from Snatch Position
15kg/6 (3)
told me my hips or tight. or my butt's to big to fit between them, your choice. Seriously, that my feet have to be farther apart and heels not turned in so far to compensate. and also, STICK the lock out.
Trained with two other students. They're men my age!! Did pretty well.
