3/31 WOD (Saturday)

Skill work: rope climb practice
Did one climb arms only from standing, could not grip rope tight enough to do it from sitting. Then wrapped feet around rope. I have been carrying long socks for six months in anticipation of this!

WOD
In 8 minutes complete the following:
Tabata thrusters (95/65)
400 m run
Max pull ups
Score = Tabata + Pull Ups

5 plus 34. Thought about doing 4, but the 4 went pretty easily the first round so I added a fifth and stuck with it. Last round was pretty tough pressing out that last one! Spent 300 meters of the run gasping for breath. I had about two minutes left for pull ups, and they went OK. Started with 10 straight and then slowly devolved.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

I have not been on thread in a while but I am proud of my deadlift today. 435, not bad for a 54 year old man that had a knee replacement about 12 years ago. I started lifting heavy again about 2 months ago.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Workout:
100 Kettlebell Swings for Time (1.5/1pd)
Every minute on the minute, enjoy 5 burpees.

I saw Claw had posted this WOD and I thought it looked like fun. It was extremely difficult. The burpees were taking so long I was only getting 3 - 5 swings per minute with a 70# kb. I hit 87 and just finished with kb's. My mistake was doing this after deadlifting. 13:45

Very good. Especially on an artificial knee. I had a TKR also but I'm not close to 435. Good job.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Nice Work Tim!
As for me I am still out of town but managed to get in a 3.5 mile run on a local trail today (still sore from the drop-in team workout) but needed to burn off some of the "comfort food" I consumed the last couple of days!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

4/2 WOD

Every minute on the minute for 30 minutes, 1 squat snatch and 20 double unders. Count completed rounds.
30 for 30. Started squat snatch at 65#, move to 75# the 5th minute as my hips warmed and opened up. Toward the end I did power snatch to overhead squat. Twenty-four of 30 rounds I did unbroken double unders. Did 50 double unders the last minute just for the hell of it.

(I was the only person who went 30 of 30 this morning, not that I'm competitive or anything....)
